I was just offered a Gurley package…my initial reaction is to hit accept before he cancels the offer, but I want to hear what the footclan has to say before I make my final decision.
Trade away: Kelce and Hunt
Receive: Gurley and Burton
A healthy Gurley would absolutely solidify my RBs, but I have major reservations about him moving forward. McVay now knows Gurley’s workload limit and is likely going to try to stay well under that threshold to preserve Gurley for the playoffs. If it’s true that Gurley has Arthritis in his knees, the man will struggle to finish out his contract. Burton has never really piqued my interest and is a massive step down from Kelce, but I suppose there are worse TE options out there. He did have a few solid games and was playing on a hurt groin for a bit.
Yes Kelce is getting older, but he is still in his prime and will likely be the #1 TE for at least another year or two…he’ll probably stay in the top 3 elite TE tier for another year or two after that simply because of how strong the KC offense is. Plus if anything happens to Hill (suspension wise), Kelce will put up even more points than he does now and he’s already producing as a RB1 or WR1. While I’m not completely opposed to moving Hunt, I do think he will be fantasy relevant again (either in Cleveland or elsewhere) with the Browns giving him a shot…and the guy is only freakin 23 years old.
So all that being said, am I overthinking this? I’m being offered a top 5 RB and arguably the #1 RB when healthy. I feel like there is significantly more risk on the Gurley side, but it’s not like my end of the package is 100% locked in (well, the Kelce part is).
