I would take that trade. This Dallas offense gives me absolutely zero confidence in their ability to call the right plays and get the ball to zeke. Not to mention, their O-line looks absolutely awful. And their receivers look like replacement level players. Every team will totally sell out the pass to stop the run game. It’s going to be a problem going forward cause Dak can’t beat anyone with his arm.
Gordon was super involved. And as someone who wasn’t as high on hill in the off season, having watched both the preseason and first week action, I am going to eat crow for my mistake. Hill is the real deal. Just really really good at football and great chemistry with a talented young QB. He’ll bust some weeks for sure but when he hits, with your team composition, JJ+Hill+Gordon will literally win you weeks.
I’m assuming this is PPR format. And I am about as high on Gronk as anyone on these forums.
Although Burton didn’t produce, he was heavily involved in the game. Played 80% of snaps and ran 40 routes. Targetted 4 times and Trubisky missed on the throws. Production should follow as they get more in sync. I think this is a pretty good deal for both sides.
EDIT: Also, Gordon gives you the floor required to support a player like Hill. And I honestly don’t think Hill will be as boom bust as he was last year. I actaully see him getting more involved in the short/intermediate crossing routes which will take targets away from Kelce.
I am much higher on Gordon now than I was before the season. It’s clear the coaching staff wasn’t just talking out of their ass when they said they wanted to involve gordon in pass game. He led his team in targets.
EDIT x 2: I actually love this trade given your roster. You should take it right now.
