Stay with it or try and go younger?

This is the place for team advice - should I make this trade, should I draft that player, etc.

Stay with it or try and go younger?

Postby GoBlue77 » Mon Jan 25, 2021 12:19 pm

For Team 1 in signature.

I am torn on what to do. I believe this team has the ability to be a contender for the championship this year. But I think if I keep it as it, then next year a lot of value is gone due to some aging assets. I have an offer that would essentially start a rebuild a mini rebuild that I am thinking about taking:

I give D. Henry and get T. Higgins.

Guess a couple of questions here: Do I just hold my team and go for a championship this year or try to sell some of the guys to start a youth movement/mini rebuild.

Appreciate any help!

I would hold and go for a title run or two. I think Henry has at least one year of elite production left and if CMC stays healthy, you have a serious combo there. Thomas should rebound no matter where he ends up or who his QB is. I would re-evaluate mid season if the wheels come off, but I think you are primed for a run or two. No reason to throw that away right now for youth. Title runs are tough to come by.

Thanks! I do think I need a 3rd RB since I am concerned on what happens with Carson. Any of the WR you would move to get one?

I think Carson will land somewhere and have a pretty good shot at starting. Outside of injury, he is a productive back. Claypool is a really hot name this summer and I think you could find a solid RB add for him. This may be counterproductive though as this does eat into your youth which was the original concern. I would hold until post NFL free agency anyway here to see what happens with Carson, he may turn out to be a safe RB3 in the end.

I'm a big Higgins believer, but given the build, I would hold Henry in this instance. I would also hold tight before moving any resources for an RB3 until FA plays out.

And Henry should be worth more than Higgins alone at this point. He has proven production and should deliver at least one if not two more years as such. Higgins showed potential, but I don’t think I’d be ready to entertain a straight swap.

I'm a big Higgins guy, but no way i'd move Henry straight up for him! No way! I'd shop him around and i'm sure you'd find a better offer.
