So I've had Gronkowski in my dynasty league since his rookie season.  I now also have Evan Engram and a big hole at WR.  I'm thinking of offering Gronk and LeSean McCoy for DeAndre Hopkins.  The Hopkins owner, who also has Davante Adams (we can only protect one of each position ) is weak at RB and TE.  Do I do the unthinkable and trade Gronk?

Engram will be affected by OBJ coming back, but OBJ will also help the Giants offense move the ball much better giving Engram more opportunities as well.  Engram is very consistent week to week and has a high floor at a position that there are few decent players to choose from.  Gronk is the best TE and a huge advantage as you know, but a risk for injury at any time.  Seeing as how you have a huge hole at WR, if you need a WR1 you can do no better than a young DeAndre Hopkins.  LeSean McCoy is great and I've had him on my team the last two years, but he's over 30.  Seems like a lot to give up.  I don't play dynasty so I don't know how age affects player value exactly other than a common sense understanding.  If this is considered an even trade in Dynasty then I'd make that trade if I was you. 


Thanks for your advice on keeping Garoppolo.

Gronk 44 + Shady 32 > Hopkins 58

Im not sure if you can judge players with numerical value, but you would be giving up a lot for Hopkins. I can understand you wanting Hopkins as he is so studly, will get Watkins back, and even produces when we doesnt have an Elite QB. Maybe you could get the trade partner to try to even the trade a bit with an upgrade at a different position for you too?

Thanks for the input.  I agree that Gronk and Shady straight up is a lot to give up but in terms of dynasty, McCoy will be 30 next year and a lot of RBs start hitting the wall at that point.  Hopkins is four years younger and WRs, generally, have a longer shelf life than RBs.  Gronk is still dominant and young but there's a lot of wear (and surgeries) on those tires.

i think you are giving to much I get your points about age and injury but gronk showed this year he can take a full season again, plus you are backing a TE that beifited from OBJ being out but also we don't know who will be QB in NY if its a rookie they might lean on TE more which works for you but it might also make Engram worthless.


basically you are giving up 2 top plays at their positions for 1 and I just don't think you can be confident in your back up to give that up.


Side not Watson looked great with Nuke and I dont expect that to change but injuries can alter a players ability. even if it just stops him being mobile that can hurt Nuke
