    Considering making this offer. I've talked to this guy and I'm almost sure he'll take it. Thoughts?
    PPR

    Big hit at RB but trying to decide if it's worth it to have such a dominating WR trio. Yahoo has it evaluated as a loss for me.

    That’s a bad trade for you due to roster construction

    Yeah I think this would be a 2 step process.

    First I need to trade some of my bench WR depth for a mid range RB. Then I can flip Zeke for high end WR.

    Essentially what I want to do is strengthen WR3 at the expense of some WR depth.

    You have Brandon Cooks and Jarvis Landry on your bench so you're set there. The dropoff from Aaron Jones to Zeke is far too great compared to the dropoff of Antonio Brown to Jarvis Landry/Brandon Cooks/Baldwin.

    If your TE is Ebron there are probably a couple teams sitting on a good TE they aren't using. I'd try and move one of Agholor/Baldwin/Landry with Ebron for a TE upgrade.

    I would be hard pressed to give up the best player in the trade by far Zeke. If you did a redraft right now mid season Zeke is still a top 5 pick no? The others wouldn't be 1st round, not even close.

    Something like this.



    Then Zeke for AB.


    Gordon
    Howard

    Michael Thomas
    A Brown
    Thielen/Landry/Cooks

    Cohen as bench RB and handcuff for Howard
    Would pick up Yeldon in the Zeke deal as more RB depth

    Fair point. The reason I'm tinkering so much with this lineup is that I feel like I'm leaving a ton of value on the bench every week. Would rather be a touch more top heavy.

    stay put harry. If dallas has any chance this year they need to feed Zeke the rock a lot. He started of a little slow but I feel like his numbers are going to be there at the end of the year.

    I do like trying to get AB off of his slow start but I don't like trading Zeke for him, especially considering your team as a whole.

    Injuries happen often, having a beast bench should make you sleep good at night lol

    I would try to package 2 good players for a great player and a scrub if you want to tinker. Either way your team looks solid so I'd be hard pressed to do too much. I almost never trade in my league because I always feel I'm getting screwed.

    JuJu has cut into AB’s numbers. There are a lot of WR’s to fill holes, there are few rbs who get the touches like Zeke.

    The bye bye weeks are just starting, wait until 8-9 and you’ll see some desperate teams.

    This was the perfect game to up Ebron's trade value.
