I posted this prior to the season.  I traded LaVeon Bell for Ebron, Ridley and two first round draft picks in our dynasty rookie draft.  One first rounder in 2019 and one in 2020.  Someone made the comment Ebron wasn't even good enough to be the starter on his own team (the Colts).  I was just wondering if they still think the trade was a poor one.  I didn't need Ridley this season, but set myself up for a nice future with him.  I won the league Championship by just over 6 points, largely because I had a massive need at TE with Gronk no longer playing like Gronk.  That comment stuck with me all season.  lol

First off bro, it was me that made the comment and if you go back and read it, it was about the confusion

 

I thought you got 2 ones, which you admitted at the time, your post was kinda confusing, and that you used those 2 picks on Ridley and Ebron, thats what I was bashing

My bad RaiderHater.  I just read this and the original post.  Funny how over time things in your mind change.  I had convinced myself the post was only about the trade.  My apologies. 

 

To whoever said it was a bad trade - You apparently don't like to win, or keep a young team in Dynasty.  At the time, I can't say I knew the trade would be "good", but with Bell not playing all season, and me winning the league title, it turned out excellent.  Even if Bell blows up for 2,200 total yards the next two years, I wouldn't have won the title without Ebron and Ridley's first several games of the season.
