Man I want Barkley! But

Postby joekuhns11 » Tue Apr 17, 2018 7:10 pm

For team 1 in my signature! I'd love to pair him up with Gurley and have Gordon on my bench, but...

It will cost me M. Thomas and CMC.. I can make another trade of 2020 picks and get Brandin Cooks

So I'd go from:
Gurley, Gordon, CMC, Thomas, K. Allen, Arob


Gurley, Barkley, Gordon, K. Allen, Arob, Cooks

We start 2rb, 3wr

QB -Desean Watson
RB -Myles Gaskin, Kerryon Johnson, Damien Williams, Mike Davis
WR -AJG, Sterling Shepherd, Corey Davis, Edelman, Beasley
TE - Jimmy Graham, Mike Gesicki, Adam Trautman, David Njoku

Team #2
Start - (2)Qb, (2)Rb,(2)RB,(2)Flex RB/WR,(1)TE

QB - Mahomes, Watson, Rivers
RB - Jacobs, Gurley, ROJO, Le’veon, AP, Lindsay, L. Perine,
WR - Diggs, T. Higgins, Woods, Parker, AJG, Gallup
TE - Waller

I wouldn't move MT/CMC for Barkley. Maybe MT + a late 1st or something along those lines.

Barkley is not worth that. Keep MT and CMac.

I think I’d hold too. You got a really good group and even though I think Barkley will be great, you never know, giving up Thomas and CMC is a lot. If you could work something by leaving Thomas out and using another player or something, I might do it but that’s probably going to be hard to get Barkley that way.

MT is worth as much as Barkley, if not more. Not sure what 2020 picks you're moving for Cooks, but I wouldn't mind buying him if it's not multiple 2020 1sts.

This would be like moving 1.01+ (MT) and 1.02 just for 1.01. No. Just no. Barkley is going to end up disappointing his owners by never, ever, at any point if his career meeting the kind of production to justify any of the ridiculous returns he's commanding.
If you can't leave at least a 20% tip, you can't afford to eat out.

Do not for any means trade Michael Thomas for Barkley, much less adding a sophomore back who had a good rookie year and should be valued around the 1.2-1.3 mark

Whatever that 2020 picks for Brandin Cooks is though, do that even with keeping MT. Sounds like a steal

As an owner of the 1.1, I would take that in a heartbeat. PPR, I am keeping CMC, non ppr, I am selling him for a mid 1st.
