Convince me to trade away Viska...

Postby M-Dub » Sat Oct 10, 2020 11:06 am

Team 2 in sig. I’ve recently made a couple trades that bolstered my RB corps at the expense of my WR corps. Essentially moved David Johnson, Lockett, ARob and my late 2021 1st for Mixon and Dobbins. My WRs are basically Julio and a bunch of JAGs now.

I was actually considering promoting Shenault from my taxi squad, but an owner has been coming after him pretty hard. He offered Josh Kelley and a late 2021 1st (the same one I traded away actually). Kelley is also taxi eligible, so I could stash him there in Viska’s old spot or keep him on my main roster. This trade would further weaken my WRs, but I almost have to take it on value alone, right?

Problem is, I have an irrational affinity for Shenault. I’m a lifelong Colorado Buffaloes fan and this is my only share of him. I overpaid for him this offseason, sending Goedert and Campbell for Viska and Duke. If you subscribe to the whole “get your guy” philosophy, then Viska is absolutely my guy. It’d break my heart to trade him away, but still, this is a borderline smash accept, right?

The value is certainly there to make this deal, but if Shenault is your guy hold and see what he becomes.

I'm here to convince you not to. :ewink:

Chark is overrated and Shenault's getting slept on. Keep him if you like him that much. I plan to because I do too.
