Getting rid of Carson

My WRs are Hopkins Diggs Gordon Watkins MeCole and Scary Terry
RBs are Chubb Fournette Carson and Sanders

I’m thinking of offering a trade of Carson and Watkins for OBJ or Carson for Mack

Other players I might try getting are Connor and Gurley but I’m worried Gurley may not be a good player to target atm

I’m gonna be 0-3 and I’m tired of Carson fumbling so much

I mean you are trading a guy that has a downward trend the last 2 weeks, so you can’t really expect to get a stud. I would say trying to get Connor or Gurley is reasonable, if I had one of those guys I would want another solid player with Carson. I highly doubt you can get Mack for Carson straight up, Mack has been pretty solid this year.


From the players I listed who would u add with Carson for Connor or Gurley? Would Watkins be a good addition?

Carson is at serious risk of losing his job based on the fumbling issues. I personally would not touch him unless he came very cheaply. It is a good buy low opportunity, but one with considerable risk tied to it. He has some value now…but much less than he had a week ago. I would temper my expectations on much of a return. Like the above poster commented…if you covet Gurley or Connor more, then give that a shot straight up and see if that owner wants a change of scenery.

I would think Sanders or McLaurin might do it. Both have upsides that I personally if I was trading away the “better player” would want. Just depends who you are trading with and what they prefer. You could always start with a straight up 1 for 1 and let them counter.

Between Gurley and Connor is there one you prefer over the other?

I would personally prefer Mack over both…but out of those 2 probably Gurley. It’s a better offense and hes still getting 15 carries a game, just no catches which worries me and hurts in ppr and .5 ppr. I’ve been low on Conner since the offseason, I think he was good just because defenses had to worry about Juju and AB and Ben, and now he’s the focus and is getting shut down.

I too prefer Gurley based on the team around him. Despite what he has done so far, there should be more scoring opportunities in that offense.

Sanders and Carson for Mack? Or am I giving up too little? If that’s not good what player along with Carson makes sense?

Would u also try Carson for Gurley then if he doesn’t take it just offer Sanders or McLaurin? @almona

Don’t think you are giving up too little at all. You are giving away the upside of Sanders. I would probably try straight up and see what they say, if they want more then you can add Sanders or McLaurin. If he would do Hardman I would do that, because I think in a couple weeks he’s not going to be real fantasy relevant once Hill comes back.


And if he doesn’t take that I should pivot to Gurley and offer about the same? 1 for 1, then add Sanders/McLaurin/MeCole

It’s whoever you value more. I personally think Mack is the more reliable back right now so that is who I would target (but that means the price might be higher), but that is just my opinion I am by no means and fantasy expert.

Thanks for the help and advice I really appreciate it, I’m worried rn I’m about to be 0-3 and it’s the first time for me generally I’d be at the top right now but just trying to improve so I could slowly make my way back in

Would you go after Engram? I already have Andrews but could offer Carson to him because he just lost Barkley and maybe flip Engram it Andrews with another player to upgrade? @sdatkins @almona
