AJ Brown for Connor?

Postby Dibbles » Fri Oct 09, 2020 7:35 pm

10 team 2 QB PPR - start 2QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1Flex.

Legit contender with no RB depth, have tried for years in this league to trade for RB’s to no avail, and just received this offer from the other perennial contender who hoards RB’s and NEVER trades them:

I give AJ Brown, I get Connor

I am not a Connor fan in the least and hate this offer but do I need to do it? I do have Snell.

My squad:
QB: Mahomes, Russ, Stafford
RB: Jacobs, Swift, Gaskin, Justin Jackson, T Coleman, Pollard, Snell, D Evans, D Williams (KC), AJ Dillon, R Penny
WR: MT, Nuk, Godwin, Keenan, DJ Moore, AJ Brown, Diontae Johnson, Gallup, Mims
TE: Kittle, Henry, Gesicki

Thanks for any advice!

No way I’m doing this, but I want nothing to do with Conner.. it’s also a bad time to sell AJ Brown.. he has so much potential..

If you want to sell AJB, I’d rather add another piece to your side to get a better long term RB.. you have some nice pieces include with AJB.

12 Team PPR 28 roster
1-QB 2-RB 3-WR 3-Flex 1-TE 1-K 1-Def

WR- Keenan Allen, DJ Moore, DJ Chark, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, Michael Gallup, Andy Isabella, Miles Boykin, Darnell Mooney, Collin Johnson, DPJ

Thanks guys, thought so. What about a counter of Diontae Johnson for Connor, or Diontae and a 2nd for Connor? Too light?

Connor is likely gone from PIT after this year and who knows what his career will take form as. If you're giving up Brown shoot for a young RB with upside or keep him.

You can find options from the WW but you have to be pretty quick.

Definitely wouldn't trade Brown for Conner.

With your depth at WR, I'd try to package two of them for a stud RB.

Zeke is likely the only potential trade target in this league, and would take a haul. AJB + Keenan + Swift a decent offer? Guessing he’d want AJB + Godwin + Swift type of deal.

That's tough. In a normal year, I'd pay that easily for Zeke. Only hesitancy is in this year of the injury/Covid/apocalypse, is it too risky to give up the depth. In the end, I'd make the deal if I could; would prefer the Godwin trade because I'm very high on Allen

Dude your team is stacked at WR it's absurd. Looking at your team there wouldn't be too many legitimate contenders given the 2QB and 3WR starting requirements.
I'd be willing to do this, maybe counter for a little extra on top, in order to give you an RB buffer. There's an argument to suggest AJB is your 8th best WR. And Conner would easily be your 3rd best RB so I'd take it.

AJB, not close, this is a redraft move, not Dynasty.

x2

Trading AJB for Conner would be a desperation move. I'd rather have Conner than Gaskin. But, with Gaskin on your roster, you're not desperate. Keep AJB.

(This is from someone who traded Conner FOR AJB before the season and has no regrets!)
