Handcuff for Melvin Gordon

Postby Niceguy » Tue Jul 30, 2019 10:18 am

I own Gordon and am being offered a trade to acquire Justin Jackson for Geronimo Allison. Is Jackson the RB to own in case Gordon misses time?

I would say Ekeler is the RB to own but Jackson could definitely win the job over time depending on how much time Gordon misses. Also it depends if standard or PPR. Ekeler has standalone value in PPR regardless of if Gordon misses time

I like Jackson, but Allison has high upside as the 2a or 2b in that offense behind Adams. I'd want at least a 2020 3rd on top of Jackson to sell Allison depending on your roster.

I would guess Ekeler is the back to own right now but I would pre season play out a bit before making a deal for the potential starter. As of now, I think Allison is too much to pay for Jackson.

Jackson and Ekeler probably split time, with Ekeler being more valuable in ppr. I wouldn't move Allison for Jackson.

Jackson only got double digit touches 1 week last year when Gordon was out, and Ekeler was also absent that game. Ekeler is the guy I want.
