Rudolf for Spiller or Gio?

Postby MrBalloonHands » Tue Aug 11, 2015 10:15 pm


A trade opportunity is presenting itself in a dynasty league I am in. There are no limits for keeper years so if I make this trade I will have the rights to the player for the length of his career, unless I cut him.

So, that being said, I have Kyle Rudolf and there is an owner with Gio and Spiller who has mentioned he would be willing to trade one for a TE. So the question is, Gio or Spiller?

I like Spillers situation with the Saints but he is already nicked up. I still think I'd rather have him than Gio, who won't see the field much, if at all, behind Hill.

Anyway, thoughts on Gio vs Spiller?

Me thinks that owner is eyeing Bennett not Kyle "All Potential, No Substance" Rudolph if he is offering up Gio or Spiller. However, if you can make the Rudolph trade, I'd target Gio over Spiller.

If you can win now then go Spiller, if not Gio will be a viable flex for a longtime but probably not much more. where spiller has very real top 10-15 PPR upside.

Win this year I might go Spiller, but even then I think Gio will be close to Spiller in PPR (or course neither are worth as much in non-PPR). Since I would value them near the same this year I'd go Gio as Spiller is old, even if people don't think of him that way. Sure he would wind up like Sproles or Woodhead and play into his 30s, but why not go with the really young guy with similar point potential?

Basically I say Gio no matter what.

And if that guy actually wants Kyle then you're getting a steal either way.
