Am I a Melvin Gordon away from a chance at the title?

Postby joeday » Wed Jun 05, 2019 9:19 am

I was offered Melvin Gordon, Justin Jackson, and Stephen Gostkowski (I have no kicker) for Lamar Jackson, Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, Allen Robinson.

Here is my current roster (projected starters in bold):
QB - Cam Newton, Lamar Jackson, Dwayne Haskins
RB - Le'Veon Bell, Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, Sony Michel, Damien Harris, Ronald Jones, Peyton Barber
WR - DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Thomas, Stefon Diggs, Robert Woods, Chris Godwin, Allen Robinson, AJ Brown, Miles Boykin
TE - George Kittle, Eric Ebron
K -
D/ST - Patriots, Texans

Does replacing the SEA RBs with Melvin (but losing depth at QB and WR) put me on the title track?

I like it for you. You are solid everywhere else, so upgrading your 2 starting RB's will help you out in going for a title. But as everyone else has said, you would need to add QB depth though.

QB- Mahomes / Minshew / Carr / Winston

WR- M Thomas / Cooper / OBJ / Diontae Johnson / Patrick / Jeffrey
TE- Ertz / Goedert / Schultz

K- Butker

IR- Sutton

Taxi- Pollard / Dillon / Pittman / Van Jefferson / Gabe Davis / Harrison Bryant

I worry about Melvin, personally. Really tailed off towards the back half last year, and had multiple injuries to the same knee that caused him to miss time. He also had micro fracture to that knee over 3 years ago, and with that injury and surgery, a shorter career is expected. I would rather have the Seattle backfield, and another dual threat FF QB, with Cam ailing. I am a believer in Penny, though. The value is fair, but I prefer the pieces you have. It's worth it, but I believe now is the time to be selling MG, personally. Like I said, value is there if you like MG.

Even if u r not a contender, value wise this is a steal. I'm not really confident in Gordo, though, so I'd b looking to trade him for another guy in the same tier.
