Possible Kiko Alonso Trade? Good idea?

Postby FantasyFoosball » Tue May 21, 2019 9:31 am

So I'm currently trying to trade for another LB. My current three are Leonard, Myles Jack, and Hitchens. I have to start two, but can start as many as five. I thought I was sitting pretty until Telvin decided to take a year off, and with the Colts off season, I'm a little concerned about Walker.

So I'm currently targeting LVE, Jaylon Smith, and Kiko Alonso. LVE and Alonso especially are on cheap, long term contracts. Smith is on a long term contract but a little more expensive than the other two.

We have our auction draft coming up, but I don't have a lot of salary cap to spend. CMC, Hopkins, and MT are not cheap. Currently, the top available LB's in FA are guys like Lavonte David, Fred Warner, Christian Kirksey, Danny Trevathan, Demario Davis, and so on. I have enough probably to get one guy like David, or Warner, but my guess is they are not going to be cheap and they will start out on two year contracts, where as the other guys like LVE and Alonso are on four year contracts.

TL;DR Alonso owner wants Walker and two of my three 2020 first round picks. I am in win now mode, I won the championship last year, and I expect to compete for another one this year. So the first round picks are not that valuable to me to be honest.

Any thoughts on the trade for Alonso? Worth it?

No LB is worth two 1st round picks in 2020 in a 10 team league.

No. Never spend a first on a LB. It’s very bad business.

Points above replacement is never more relevant than when discussing LB value.
