Trade for Zeke - Should I do it?

Postby SillyNinja » Thu Oct 17, 2019 11:26 am

My team is competing for the championship this year and my RB2's are all pretty weak short-term options. I'm thinking of trading for Zeke. Would you make this trade? Obviously completely depletes my draft capital for 2020 and leaves me zero TE depth but gives me a good shot to win in the near term. Would appreciate your feedback.

If Zeke puts you over the top, make the deal!

I'm currently in 2nd place with the 2nd most points. First place is currently far and away the best team. I would say this evens me up with him and gives me a pretty good shot to win. Nothing is guaranteed obviously. I mean, who knows, my team has a decent chance to win as-is if #1 gets the injury bug. Could be conservative and shoot for 2nd this year and bolster the team with two first rounders next year. Tough call.

I'd make the trade and hope to win it all this year.

Seems like solid value thought I’d remove the 2nd if you can.

Exactly what I was thinking. Otherwise, you're so close to winning; go all in.
