Trade Watkins straight up for A. Smith?

Postby jojo5151 » Sat Nov 18, 2017 9:01 am

For team 1 in sig

Must win situation & my QB's a shaky Rivers post concussion or Cutler (meh).

Should I consider trading Watkins for A. Smith straight up? All other offers I've made involving Watkins have been turned down but Smith might be "getable" & he has a pretty good stretch schedule.

Yay or Nay?

That is an overpay. Can you try picks? I gave up two 4th rds and Chad Williams for Smith 3 weeks ago.

you only show a roster of 17 players (and 3 of those are Defenses)..i can't believe that there is nobody on the ww to pick

i think it is also an overpay, if you think it will help you win $$ then go for it ....but i would ask for a pick to go with smith

PLEASE offer me your Watkins for my A Smith! I've been trying to move him in a rebuild and best offer I've gotten is M a rebuild!

I'm not gonna argue with any owner who's just "done" with Sammy; I own him a few places and can relate to needing now vs promises for tomorrow. But I wonder if he can't still pull a bit more return, like Cam or Russell? In the end, though, would easily see why making this specific move works for you

I know how it feels when you see a need but he would need to bring something else to the table besides Smith to do that deal. A solid wr prospect or first for me. Even then it could be tough.

Feels like a huge loss in value. Remember KC traded up to pick his replacement in the first round. How long before they hand it over.

When I read the title, I was sure this was going to be for a 2QB league, and even then I wasn't sure which side I'd go with. In a 1QB league, Watkins is still worth much more than Smith.

I don't care how low you are on Sammy, this is a heck no to the extreme
TEAM A - 12 teams (19 R/U, 18 Champ, 17 R/U)
BREES, Jimmy G, Haskins, Lock, Keenum
COOK/JACOBS/BELL, Gurley, D Washington, Shady, Gio, Gallman, Ollison, M Davis, Rodney A
NUK/HILL/EVANS/GOLLADAY/K ALLEN, Hilton, Edelman, Alshon, Sammy, Wims, Dez
KITTLE, Waller, Irv, Herndon, J Graham, Eifert
Not listing my IDP, but they matter as much as offense in this league
TEAM B - 32 teams, double copy - TEs get slight bump in scoring (1st year league, tanking this year to build through 2020 draft)
DARNOLD, Brissett, Rosen, Tyrod
SAQUON/MIXON, Hines, Gallman, L Miller
NUK/EVANS/OBJ/K ALLEN/HOLLYWOOD, Edelman, R Anderson, A Tate, Coutee, G Ward
KITTLE, Ian Thomas, James O
Danielle Hunter and some maybes for my IDP squad.
