I’ve posted here in the past about my roster, which is under a bit of a crunch. I’ve linked that previous post here for reference, but for those who don’t want to click through, here’s what my roster looks like. It’s a 10-team, 0.5 PPR, 1 QB dynasty league that also starts 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 2 FLEXes, 1 K, and 1 DST (with 10 bench spots, 3 IR spots, and 4 taxi squad spots):
QB: Deshaun Watson, HOU
RB1: Aaron Jones, GB
RB2: Austin Ekeler, LAC
WR1: DeAndre Hopkins, ARI
WR2: Julio Jones, ATL
TE: Jared Cook, NO
FLEX1: Mark Ingram, BAL
FLEX2: Marvin Jones, DET
Bench: Matt Ryan (ATL), Cam Newton (FA), Tevin Coleman (SF), Raheem Mostert (SF), Justin Jackson (LAC), Chris Thompson (JAX), Brandin Cooks (HOU), Anthony Miller (CHI), Dede Westbrook (JAX), Phillip Dorsett (SEA), Blake Jarwin (DAL), Hayden Hurst (ATL)
Taxi Squad: Allen Lazard (GB), Miles Boykin (BAL), Jace Sternberger (GB), Chris Herndon (NYJ)
2020 Draft Picks: 1.08 (8), 2.08 (18), 2.10 (20), 3.08 (28), 4.01 (31), 4.08 (38)
Future Draft Picks: All own 2021 and 2022 draft picks (four rounds and picks in each, can’t trade beyond that right now)
I’ve been in negotiations for a Joe Mixon trade for a long, long time now, and so far, nothing has stuck, even incorporating a third team to help facilitate the deal. I made my ninth (I think) proposal earlier today and wanted to know if it’s a deal I should take. On my side, it’s…
- Out: Ingram, 1.08 (8), 2.08 (18)
- In: Mixon, 3.01 (21)
That would leave me with five picks in this upcoming draft: 2.10 (20), 3.01 (21), 3.08 (28), 4.01 (31), 4.08 (38). That’d still be an issue for me, in terms of the roster crunch and incoming rookies, but it’d be a significant upgrade in my RB position group.
Is the upgrade from Ingram to Mixon worth my top two picks in a draft class as good as this one? I’ve decided that if this deal doesn’t get done, either because I decide to pull it off the table or the other team says no, I’ll probably back off and either re-approach shortly before our rookie draft or around the time training camps start, whenever that will be this year. I have other potential deals I can make (one team was expressing interest in acquiring Hurst, potentially for a future second round pick, so that might be a path I choose to explore instead).
Thanks for the help, guys!
