Should I trade for Zeke even with 6 game suspension?


#1

With Zeke suspended 6 games, the guy in my league with him has no other good running backs. I have DJ, Gordon and Howard. Thinking about trading Melvin for Zeke straight up. Also, if he appeals, it may drop to 3 game suspension. Thoughts?? ( I also have Terrance West if I need him)


#2

Not the worst idea. Sounds like a keeper or dynasty? If it is hell yeah.

Plus, jump on it while he is still afraid. Zeke owners around the world are panicking


#3

It depends on how low the owner is on him now. You might get a Melvin for Zeke trade. With your RBs, I think it’s definitely worth a shot.


#4

I think I’d try to jump on the worries. If you can trade Melvin for Zeke straight up I think that’s a win for you. You can survive the suspension with Howard so it makes a lot of sense.

How TF did you get 3 top 10 backs lmao.


#6

Crazy, right?! Everyone went super high on WR so I kinda got screwed with that but I’ll gladly take 3 of the 7 best RBs lol


#7

Yeah, I’m think I can hold even with Terrance West if I have to. I’m gonna go for it.


#8

Yes You should definitely trade for him, regardless of how long the suspension is.


#9

I’m just worried about a 6-game suspension because he won’t be playing until week 8 because of the bye week. I’m torn…


#10

yeah but barring any injuries, you have plenty of backup to work with. the only thing i havent looked into is when their bye weeks are. that plays in a bit for me, but i still probably do it. just think of that late year push with DJ and Zeke man. the stuff of champions.


#11

I would trade for him still but I would try trading Howard for Zeke


#12

I’m gonna try that first and the go Melvin if I have to

You have a lot of risk here bro. Yeah the suspension could drop to 3 games. Or it could stay at 6. Or he could appeal, delaying the suspension, have the suspension upheld, and you lose Elliott for your fantasy playoffs. Right now it’s wide open.

I would much rather have Gordon than Elliott. I think Howard’s due to bust this year, so I’d probably do that, but that’s just me. I think you’ll find most experts will rank Zeke behind both Gordon and Howard given the suspension.

The thing to remember here is: Even if he ends up stuck with the 6 game suspension, come week 8 (basically mid-season) you’ve got a “fresh” TOP RB to finish out the season. And you can believe he’s gonna be a MONSTER on “fresh” wheels at that point even though Dallas has a fairly tough end of season schedule. But I agree…this is a tough one to figure. Best of luck whatever happens!!! :smile:
