Brown Trade Opinions


#1

I’m in a full PPR league and I’m hurting a bit at the running back position.

My line-up is

Dalton/Newton (streaming qbs for now)
McCafferey
Cohen
Brown
Diggs
Gronk
Matthews (titans)
Kelley
(streaming defenses)
Succop

I also have Crowell, crowder, jj nelson, Jaron brown, (open space)

I’m trying to get a top running back and everybody is interested in Brown. I’m feeling pretty good about Diggs but could also offer him. I’ve been offered a trade of Brown for Carlos Hyde and Dez Bryant. I was thinking of countering Brown and Kelley for Hyde and O’dell. Would this be a good trade on my end? Or am I better off saving the top 2 receivers in fantasy and crossing my fingers that one of my backs becomes productive enough for the RB1/RB2 spot?


#2

I’m in the same boat in one of my leagues. I’m not trading AB unless I get a for locked and loaded RB1. I’ll take the hits with my crappy backs.


#3

I’d do that trade (the Beckham one) for sure. If he doesn’t bite, I’d try to package Crow and a WR for Hyde alone.


#4

I haven’t been able to give Crow away, lol. I’ve tried to package him in a bunch trades and nobody bites if he’s involved.

As far as the beckam trade, do you think Diggs or Brown should be the one to go? Do i trade diggs and kelly or brown and kelly for hyde and OBJ?


#5

you think hyde is a locked and loaded RB1 week in and week out?


#6

Diggs and Kelly shouldn’t net you Hyde and OBJ. You’d be getting upgrades at each position.


#7

Man Hyde scares the shit out of me. He’s talented but he’s never finished a season. If I’m trading Brown, I’m looking at Leveon-Hunt-Zeke-Freeman in that order. Maybe even slide Freeman ahead of Zeke because of the suspension fears.


#8

I’d agree, if Beckham wasn’t the WR. I view it as a near lateral move to get a piece he desperately needs.


#9

I may just let a few weeks play out before trading one of my top two WR. I just want to get a back so I’m not relying on McCafferey as my #1. I might give cohen and Kelley a little time to see what happens with them. Or hopefully JJ Nelson gives me another big game this week and I can use that to entice a trade for a higher ranked RB.


#10

How do you guys feel about Rishard Matthews as a WR2? Is it even worth letting go of diggs or brown? Or should I make sure I’m getting an OBJ type in the trade?


#11

You should pretty much always make sure your getting a tier 1 player if your giving up a tier 1 player. Beckham and Hyde is a good value for Brown in my book.
