Would you make this deal for Ertz?


#1

10 team, Full PPR, redraft. I am 3-3.

Had a pretty good waiver/free agency period and managed to rebuild much of my bench, including using my #1 waiver on Doug Baldwin. Now I am trying to re-open trade talks with the Ertz owner.

We had previously discussed this trade, but I am a bit skeptical because I am a huge Gordon fan and do feel like he’s on the cusp of a breakout:

I give:
Trey Burton
Josh Gordon

I get:
Zach Ertz

I suggested giving the same deal with Baldwin instead of Gordon, and he is/was entertaining it, but says that he prefers Gordon because he has Baldwin on several other teams.

I just threw this trade idea out there to try to expand the deal and see if I could gain more. Do you think this might get accepted, and if so is it worth it? I suggested:

I give:
Fournette
Breida
Gordon
Burton

I get:
Mixon
Ertz
Kenny Stills (who I would drop for, say, Kearse)

Here’s my team as is:

QB: Patrick Mahomes
RB: Sony Michel
RB: Matt Breida
WR: Josh Gordon
WR: Taylor Gabriel
TE: Trey Burton
W/R/T: Ito Smith
DEF: Colts
K: Justin Tucker
BN: Davante Adams (bye)
BN: Juju Smith-Schuster (bye)
BN: Doug Baldwin (bye)
BN: Geronimo Allison (bye)
BN: Leonard Fournette
BN: OJ Howard

Thoughts?

i like it because you upgrade at TE and RB. But you are clearly going to be hurting this week at WR if you go through with it.


#3

Yeah, I’d have to try to squeak by with Gabriel and Kearse


#4

Do the deal then flip OJ for another WR piece.


#5

also you’d be down to 3 RBs, not ideal. Maybe work a deal with Baldwin or JuJu for some RB depth.


#6

but if it was down to Mixon, Sony, and Ito that’s a fine core (barring injuries) I think (should that offer theoretically be accepted). Do you think the offer would even be in the realm of possibility of getting accepted? I think it seems pretty reasonable but obviously I have bias in this case.


#7

Depends. The perceived value of Gordon is likely all over the board right now. You’re asking someone to sell a top two TE for a guy that is almost entirely potential at this point and a proven inferior TE to Ertz. It’s all going to depend on this individual’s perceived value of Gordon. I happen to be a person that would value him greatly right now but would want to buy low on him. Ertz is a critical piece that separates the Ertz owner from all other owners except the Kelce owner at this point.

I meant the Mixon one. The Gordon/Burton for Ertz straight up is already supposedly coming my way but I’m a big time Gordon believer so I’m sketchy on it
