Here is my situation. Would love to hear open thoughts on it.
I have the 5th pick in a 12 team/half ppr/redraft/snake/1Q-2R-2W-1T-1F-5B. Seems like every ranking has me picking Jones or OBJ. Using tiers, Nelson is in tier 1 with these options but to me its really Tier 1A - Brown, Tier 1B (no particular order) - Jones, OBJ, Nelson, Green and Evans. I know with pick 9, I would be guaranteed one of these 1B-WR. But realistically I know some guys in my league in round 1 will pick purely on ADP, so likely I would guarantee myself one of them with pick 11. But for this argument, say I had the opportunity to swap pick 1.5 for 1.9 in exchange I would give up 2.8 in exchange for 2.4. Is this something anyone would consider? Why or Why not? For the moment, not looking for any arguments on why I shouldn’t pick a WR over and RB. For this topic lets just say I’m set on going WR in round 1.
Here is some examples of what I could get using arbitrary rankings that I have handy:
Using Yahoo’s current ADP rankings , without the trade I would get Jones and Gurley. With the trade I would get my choice of Green and Nelson as well as Dez
Using the Footballers rankings, without the trade I would get Jones and Lynch and with the trade I would have my choice of Nelson/Green/Evans and for the second pick have Michael Thomas.
Looking forward to hearing some thoughts on this.
