Non-PPR Keeper league: should I offer DeHop for David Johnson?

It’s a non-PPR 12-team Keeper league.

My 3 Keepers are:

  1. Todd Gurley
  2. DeAndre Hopkins
  3. Jordan Howard OR Michael Thomas (tough choice)

Because of the dearth of the Running Back position in our league (everyone keeps running back), I’m considering keeping Howard over Thomas IF I don’t make a trade. However, the dude in our league with David Johnson is a Texans fan and isn’t too high on David Johnson. He’s already mentioned DeAndre Hopkins before.

Given Johnson’s injury last year + the question marks around Arizona + Hopkins’ immense floor with Watkins at the helm, should I offer this guy a 1-for-1 trade: Hopkins for Johnson? My Keepers would then be:

  1. Todd Gurley
  2. David Johnson
  3. Michael Thomas


This same question applies for DeAndre Hopkins for Leonard Fournette in a 1-for-1 trade. Another Texans fan in our league.

Get DJ if you can. Otherwise I would roll hop and Thomas

Either way you’re a winner because those are 3 great players. Personally, even in the non-ppr format I would offer Hopkins for DJ straight up. Even though his value isn’t quite as high as a .5 or full ppr league he’s still going to rack up yards and td’s.

If the guy is a big Texans fan then I think that deal gets done. It’s a win-win for both sides.
