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
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.
