Here’s how this plays out. I walk over to two guys in our league - we talk a lot of smack and trade some - and start talking up my Ito for D Cook trade and how lustrous my RB stable is.
About that time the Gurley owner starts talking to me about trading him. The other guy, the league leader and one position above me, is a massive GA bulldogs fan, so he gets in a massive tizzy. He thinks I’m about to have Gurley and Chubb.
So I offer up Barkley and the Bears D (I knew this guy valued the Bears D). League leader starts throwing in almost everything he has.
Trades Goff, Zeke, Evans and the Cleveland D basically for Gurley and 3 droppable players.
Now he also has Mahomes and Thielen but still, he gave up 4 quality pieces for Gurley. At one point I essentially back out and try to drive up the price so the leader yields the boat.
I can imagine an argument we’re Gurley wins that trade but I can’t imagine giving up so much of my quality depth for a player. Just me.
