Akers vs Carson

Postby Londondynasty » Wed Nov 25, 2020 8:03 am

Who would you have higher and what is the difference in a standard scoring league?

Both contending.

I have Carson. I dont need to start him as I have A.Jones, Swift, Gibson, Gurley, R.Jones.

He has Jrob and not much else in terms of RBs

Thoughts on trying to get Akers for Carson?

I claimed Carson off waivers in week 2 of 2017. He has served me well.

I've got them close in my rankings, but do have Akers ahead. given your depth, I think that might be worth a try

Given all context, I'd make this move (gamble?). If you are selling to a contender you may even be able to get greedy and get a little something on top.

TE: Kelce - Goedert - Jonnu - Kittle :(
DL: Graham | LB: White | DB: Poyer
2021: late 4th
2022: 1st x2, 2nd, 3rd

Team #2: 12-Team - PPR - *SF* - 6pt Pass - TE Prem
25 Roster + 5 Taxi | QB, RB, 2-WR, TE, SFLX, 3-FLX

I would want something on top to move Carson for Akers at this point.

I'm thinking of trying to get Shenault as well in the deal.

Thinking I may need to send a 3rd back as well? I have 3 2s next year, but no first, so I would rather keep those picks in a package to move up if necessary

If I'm the other owner, this becomes a reject, no counter. As someone who just shopped carson, you will likely be lucky to get anything on top of akers, let alone getting him straight up. But you never know unless you ask i guess, haha

Could work out very well long term for you.

That's the plan. Let's hope I dont have a run of injuries at RB for the playoffs. I'm tied for 1st seed at the moment with my division mate who I beat last week. Top scorer in the league but he has McCaffrey coming back.

I traded Drake for the 1.6 where I picked Swift and Diontae Johnson. And then drafted Gibson and Dillon in the 2nd. So with Akers and Shenault it will hopefully be a productive draft for me in the future
