TRADE Diontae Johnson for Saquon Barkley

Full ppr, I was offered Diontae Johnson for saquon Barkley in a full ppr league. I’m tempted to take it because I’ve been looking for a solid trustworthy flex play. My team is as follows…

Qb: lamar
Rb1: zeke
Rb2: James Robinson
Wr1: Cooper Kupp
Wr2: Stefon Diggs
Te: hockenson
Flx: Emmanuel sanders
Def: rams
K: Tyler bass

Be: dalton schultz
Be: Tony pollard
Be: Zack moss
Be: Rashod Bateman
Be: Adrian Peterson
Be: saquon Barkley

ir: Jeff Wilson

What are your thoughts on swapping Barkley with Diontae Johnson and if Robinson doesn’t play this week who would you rather bet on starting to replace him?

Your recs are solid! Diontae would be a nice flex for sure, however with JRob’s injury id be cautious moving Saquon, unless you can be set up to trade maybe sanders or a bench piece for another quality rb2-3, if you do acquire Diontae. Also seeing the work load that booker is getting right now, and then transferring that to Saquon (booker had %93 of snaps last week) he’s going to be an rb1 based on volume alone. Personally I would keep Saquon, and ride him in your flex once he returns hopefully this week, probably week 11.
