Am I overpaying for Cook?

Postby Dynasty19 » Thu Aug 31, 2017 1:33 pm

My team one below I'm expecting my first rounders to be late for the next couple of years (hopefully). I am a big fan of Dalvin Cook and the guy who has them has agreed to a deal but I want to make sure I'm not overpaying too much and everyone's thoughts on Cook. Below is the trade.

Give: 2018 first, 2019 first (both should be late picks) and Njoku

Receive: Dalvin Cook
10 Team - Full PPR
QB - Wentz, Mayfield, Carr
RB - Chubb, Bell, Conner, Lindsay, McKinnon
WR - Adams, OBJ, AJ Brown, McLaurin, Cooks, Crowder, Watkins
TE - Engram, Goedert, Howard, Knox

I'd rather have Cook. Even if you're deep at the position, you can always trade one for something better.

Agreed with this BUT I don't think it is a premium price if the picks are going to be late. This is an unusual year. Cook would be a top 2 pick most years. So 2 late firsts and the Browns TE, I'd do it if you're very confident the picks will be late.

In a Vaccum, sure, this deal is about 50/50, maybe slight overpay

But for your team with these 3 already, you do not need to pay essentially 3 firsts for your RB4. Use that payment elsewhere if you must

If it was Mixon or Fournette I'd do it, but I'm not very high on Cook. I'd stay put.

I'd sell Cook for that. But since you'd be receiving Cook, yes that's way too much to pay.
