Gronk trade... Help

Recommended Posts

We are an 8 man league

Ok here it is

I give up Gronk....I have Reed

I get Mike Evans and Manny Sanders to add to my receivers of OBJ, Robinson and Cooper (who I'll drop)

 

My RBs are Saquon, Howard, TJ, Carson, Collins and A. Jones

 

Olson is available to pick up to back up Reed.

 

Do it?

Or Fuller for Carson.... Both on the table to me.

I would say do it. And dont be surprised if Olsen becomes your starter over Reed.

I like Evans more than Fuller. But you would be giving up less in the Fuller trade. Just have options for  Fuller (injuries) if you go that way

The 3 point projected drop from Gronk to Reed is offset by the 7 point increase from Robinson to Evans....

I'd happily accept that first deal. I feel fairly confident that either Reed or Olsen will be a competent TE moving forward, and with Gronk's injury history, it's probably not a bad idea to offload some of that risk. Reed and Olsen come with the same risk, of course, but that's what make TE such a fluid and difficult position to gauge. The downgrade is more than offset by the two big WR upgrades you receive.

I do like Gronk and think he's undervalued, but Evans and Sanders is good value.  That WR core you have is iffy, with OBJ a possible head case, and that gives you a significant upgrade.  You have a few options at TE with high upside, Reed and Olsen, hopefully one works out.  I am only so so on the Fuller/Carson one.  He's running like a monster lately, let's see how long he can keep it up.

Is there a way to offload TJ to the Fournette owner or Howard to the Cohen owner? (not 100% sure there is a Cohen owner in 8 man).  You have a lot of guys who are not bad, but semi-borderline/good.  It would be nice to consolidate those guys into a monster RB1 or WR1 if possible.  It's nice to keep Gronk is my point and you have a lot of points you are leaving on your bench and wondering if there's a way to upgrade that way.  I do think Evans/Sanders is probably helpful to you somewhat, but I'm always looking to keep my top guys if possible.

Thanks all.... Great feedback.  I pulled the trigger only because the guy who got Gronk from me is 0 and 5 so he won't catch anyone especially giving away his receivers.   Let's see what happens...
