I wouldn’t do this trade. The 3rd pick would be nice but based off of your post you only get 1 keeper correct?
Also, who do you think you can get with the 1.03? Is it another top rated stud RB?
The way I look at it is this…
- You get Bell (Best RB in fantasy along with Gurley) + Gordon…
- Gordon + someone who is not going to be the best RB in the league.
Sure in that first scenario you lose out on the 3rd pick which you can make an argument is worth taking the deal, but only if you can still get a stud RB at 1.03. Furthermore, people are claiming Bell will lose value after this year? Even if that is correct, you then choose not to keep him and keep Gordon instead. No matter which scenario you pick you aren’t keeping Bell next year so his value next year is irrelevant.
Finally, I think the Steelers are going to absolutely run Bell into the ground this year. Sure that can lead to injury, but they aren’t going to want to hurt the guy. He is their best chance (along with AB) at winning a SB. They are going to use him as much as possible this year and cut bait next year, just like you should do.
Honestly though you can’t go wrong either way. If you can get a stud at 1.03 and think your 3rd round pick will be a good addition, going with the trade is understandable.
