No worries, if it wasn’t intended as such. A hot take is something that someone says to get attention, that they may or may not believe.
I very much believe this is a bad trade, and am giving my opinion to help someone. I think it’s a bad trade because it sacrifices the depth he does have at the most important position in fantasy: RB. He does have fantastic depth WR, which I would absolutely try to turn into better players at positions of need, namely QB and TE. Could I be wrong? Sure.
I think the real disconnect, however, is that I don’t actually think Hyde is made of glass. He’s certainly dealt with injuries, but most, if not all RBs do and he’s played 13 or more games two out of three years, and when he plays he’s a very effective and startable RB who gets a lot of volume. Also, I don’t think Fornette is better than Mixon. Perhaps his workload is a bit safer (unless his team is trailing), but he’s also had injury issues in the not so distant past. So, in my view, he’s be downgrading his RB core significantly and shipping off a high end WR for a (admittedly significant) QB upgrade and a TE. I just don’t think that’s a good trade.
