I play in Dynasty Leagues and the S. Barkley stuff is getting flat out crazy. I have seen him traded for 3 premium players, two very good players and a first round rookie pick and even another top RB and two WR2's. Talk about the hype train leaving the building. I've been playing this game for 25 years and have never seen a rookie so in demand. Never.
That being said, and this is a topic on the message board of a league I'm in, which of these two groups would you rather have. I thought it was an easy decision, but now I'm not so sure.
Group A: DeAndre Hopkins on a roster that took 2nd place overall last season, but is in need of a running back, as the only two are Dalvin Cook and Alvin Kamara. Wr's are all WR2's outside of Hopkins.
Group B: The first overall pick in the rookie draft (Barkley), E. Sanders (WR Denver) and the #1 pick in the Devy Draft which gives you the #1 pick of any player in college football in 2019 (likely Bryce Love).
At first, I chose Hopkins. Now I'm second guessing that choice as a team loaded with Kamara, Cook, Barkley and Love would be unbelievable in a league where you can start 3 RB's.
What say you? The league is split as this is a trade that was offered to a guy in our league. Of the 12 owners, 7 voted to keep Hopkins.
