I don’t think you need to blow it up. You could use a WR overhaul but the rest of your team is just fine. Do you have enough picks to package pick and WR to upgrade to younger WRs? If not I’d just draft WRs and keep what you have.

Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX, 1 SF, 1 K

RB- DJ, Barkley, Kamara, Cook, Mixon, Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones, Ekeler, Lindsay, Powell
WR- AB, OBJ, Nuk, Michael Thomas, Adams, Watkins, Josh Gordon, Dante Pettis, Doctson, Tyrell, Josh Reynolds
TE- Zach Ertz, Jordan Reed, Hunter Henry, Shaheen
DL- Watt, Donald, Campbell, Griffen, Graham, Irving
LB- Kuechly, Lee, Kwon, Martinez, Hicks, Eric Kendricks, Edmunds, Preston Brown, Hitchens

You need WRs for sure especially with having to start 3...maybe try and trade Gronk? Tannehill? Cam if you can get a haul for him

Or you can blow it up and start over - overpay for Wentz; maybe you can get Corey davis or an underperforming wr for cheap.

I don't know if I would "blow it up", but I would definitely consider selling your veterans who had decent seasons (like Fitz) if you can find a buyer.

im not sure that the value is there to make it worth blowing up to be honest. i see cam, dak, gurley, and gronk that are desireable...i guess if the prices are could sell, but it seems to me like that is likely to put you into a major rebuild for what your likely to get in return. i typically try to add a veteran in your shoes....but some will tell you to take 3 years and figure it out from there.

if anything...i could see trying to strengthen your wr's via ingram and gurley while playing the ww and draft for rbs over the next few years.

Obviously you have a WR deficiency. The problem is, who do you sell to fix the issue while remaining competitive. If you sell Cam you basically have 1 startable QB in a superflex. If you sell Ingram or Gurley, you're down to 1 solid RB when you need at least 2. You could sell Gronk and try to add 2 impactful WRs but you're still thin and I think Gronk gives you more of an edge than the pieces you'd get in return.

So I am actually fan of rebuilding. Trade Ingram, Cam, Gronk, Fitz (if you can) and start the rebuild around young WRs and maybe some early picks to get a rookie QB.

I'd hold Dak and Gurley and look to move everyone else. Especially the older guys who are bound to lose value every single day going forward.
