A tale of two trades


#1

A quick overview – 10 team league, currently sitting in a tie for first place. Certainly not guaranteed a playoff seed yet, so need to keep winning. Standard scoring.

Give: Hopkins, Martin, Mixon
Get: McKinnon, Evans, Landry

or

Give: Hopkins, Martin
Get: Thomas, Thompson

I’m temping to lean towards Thomas/Thompson, but tell me why I’m wrong?


#2

Thomas…
Demarius? Michael?


#3

Ah, should have clarified. Michael Thomas.


#4

So…
In the 1st Scenario, you end up with:

RB McKinnon
WR Evans
WR Landry

In the 2nd scenario, you’d end up with:

RB Mixon
RB Chris Thompson
WR Michaelthomas

Both are pretty good. I’d prefer the 1st by a bit… but that also depends if you deeper at WR or RB.


#5

Yeah, exactly. The player in the first scenario got cold feet and backed out, so went with the second scenario purely to offload Hopkins. I’m deeper at RB, but that’s purely because I have Zeke and have been benching McFadden and Morris while that situation plays out. Also have Hunt at RB1, and Green at WR1.

Depending on how this week goes, I may try to package Mixon and Morris for a more reliable RB2 – then ride Thompson in the flex.
