I posted in my league that I was interested in moving Gronk – primarily interested in picking up a WR1 but willing to package a multi-player swap but the core to be Gronk and a WR1. I was offered the following trade.

 

The trade – I give Gronk, Decker, 2.06

I receive Keenan Allen, J. Cook, 4.05

 

It is dynasty PPR, 12 teams, roster 54, Start   QB 1 / RB 1-3 / WR 2-5 / TE 1-4 / PK 1 à 9 total offense + 9 defense    

 

My roster  (primary offense players)

QB:    Tyrod, Bradford, Bridgewater, Alex Smith

RB:    Devonta Freeman, Doug Martin, Jalen Richard, Prosise, Jacquizz Rodgers

WR:   Julio Jones, Willie Snead, Kelvin Benjamin, Decker, Moncrief, Eli Rogers, Perriman

TE:     Gronk, Hooper, Swoope, Richard Rodger

Picks: 1.06, 2.06, 3.06, 5.06, 6.06

 

His Roster

QB:     Brees, Carr, Cousins, RG III

RB:     Jamaal Charles, Dixon, Ervin, Hightower, Dion Lewis, Jeremy Hill, Lynch, Alf Morris

WR:     Keenan Allen, Cooper, Evans, Demaryius Thomas, Wheaton, Allison

TE:      Bennett, Cook, Fiedorowicz, Higbee, Miller

Picks: 1.09, 2.08, 4.05, 5.05, 5.12, 6.12

 

I am probably going to pass on the trade but wanted some input.  I have Keenan just outside the top 12 in my PPR rankings so not a legit WR1.....plus considerable risk – injury and competition for targets from now that Williams, Benjamin, and Inman have stepped up last year. That busts the intent I had with the trade. My view is that Gronk trade for a back end WR1 would be a one-for-one swap or close to it but with Allen having higher injury risk than Gronk (if that’s possible) and hasn't seen anywhere close to a full season and is outside the top 12 for me.

 

The Decker – Cook piece of the trade is not in my favor and I don’t need Cook.

 

The pick piece of the trade does not happen even if I become convinced to take on the other parts of the trade. The pick part of the trade is a non-starter for me.

 

Wanted to roll this out and get your comments and advice. Thanks in advance.

Agree - would you be in the same place if it was Cooper and the picks were out of the picture?

Thanks all for your comments. I took a pass on the trade and did not counter but told him that I was looking for a legit WR1. His reply was that Cooper and Evans were not on the table. Appreciate the comments from all of you that replied.
