I’m trying to Trade Carlos Hyde for John Ross and Montgomery. The other team wants Fitz as well. I’m thinking of walking away. Montgomery situation is uncertain as Hyde and I think I’d rather have Fitz now than trade away for the future. I have a decent shot at a title run this year but have Fitz and older QB’s. Thoughts?
Walk away. That is an absurd request. I wouldn’t even trade Fitz for John Ross and Montgomery alone.
You’re paying for the training camp hype of John Ross. There’s no way that offense can support a WR1 (Green), and RB 1/2 (Mixon) and another WR2/3 in Ross.
Keep Hyde, you can use him as a flex play. Montgomery I’m also very low on. He has zero % chance of winning the lead back role. His ceiling is a scat back / 3rd down back and I’m personally not a huge fan of drafting those guys cause making start/sit decisions is very hit or miss. I’d muhc rather own Williams out of that backfield.
I think Hyde is undervalued right now. He can easily go to another team and be a lead back after this year as well and I see him holding that starting job to start the year for a while. But if you reallywant to trade him, there’s no way I would take less than Ross + Montgomery.
Thanks. That’s basically my feeling on the request.
How realistic is your shot at a title? If it is truly realistic I’d walk away because Fitz would be too valuable for your chances that Ross nor Montgomery could fill even halfway. However, if realistically you don’t stand as big a chance it may not be all that bad to explore mixing and match maybe different players and a draft pick for Fitz?
