What to do with Ertz

Postby Make It Rain » Mon Oct 21, 2019 9:06 am

For the team in signature I’m a strong contender but am in a tight race with a couple other top teams. As we all know Ertz has been a massive disappointment this year, while other TEs have jumped onto the map (Hooper, Waller, etc). I’ve been holding the course but am starting to wonder if it’s time to make a move.

Here are the options I see:
1) look to trade Ertz for another TE. Something like Ertz for Waller or Hooper straight up. Or Ertz+ for Engram or Kelce

2) trade a RB or WR for a TE...although this makes me very TE-heavy which I don’t like

3) sit tight and stay the course

I’m sure others are dealing with the same situation and I’m wondering what others are doing. An thoughts or suggestions for the team in sig are welcome!

I'd stay the course. I don't think selling Ertz right now would be wise and I probably wouldn't move any of your major pieces for another TE.

Ertz is a solid hold. His value is too low right now to be selling him. Especially with your lineup.

sit tight. Ertz is still a good starter just accept Ertz is the TE 6 or 7 now and not 2 or 3

Hold. Sucks they goedert is getting some goal line routes he might get but they’re both running routes, it’s not like Ertz is in to block or coming off the field. I think Ertz will be fine.

I traded Ertz this season and got Andrews in the deal..
I own Hooper in one league and Waller in several leagues and I can tell you that I would not move either straight up for Ertz.. if you can get either of those TEs for Ertz, I would do it in a second..
that said, as many mentioned.. I wouldn't want to move Ertz right now ... of course, the goal is to win, so if you need to sell "low" to get some immediate production, do it
for reference, I traded OJH and 2nd for Hooper and I feel pretty good about that ...

Ya this is the feeling I get from the owners of those TEs. No one respects Ertz anymore the owners in my league view him as a TE2 which is stupid, but still everyone loves to overreact (Sold McLaurin above value too). I'd easily trade OJH and a 2nd for Hooper but that would get insta-declined. I tried offering Ertz and a 1st for Engram was told not enough. I just don't think there is anyway to sell him he is too buy-low.

I think stay the course is the play. I’m a little biased since I have Ertz too but I still trust him to help win a championship. I haven’t looked into moving him but Waller or hooper straight up would be intriguing although it’s likely not a possibility.

I think they want a 1st on top, which feels like too much. I am not super comfortable with Hooper long term. I'd do Ertz and a second for Waller but I lost my second acquiring Davante Adams.
