Burton + Hamilton more or less = Miller, and regardless these three guys are fairly irrelevant in this deal compared to the other pieces. It comes down to the fact that a top-5 dynasty WR / top-10 dynasty asset is worth way more than Mixon + 1.03. I'd take Thomas in a heartbeat.

You already have 3 top WR. I love Thomas, but you don’t need him. Mixon is a baller and a great compliment to Zeke in your team. Keep hold of that 1.03 and get one of the WR in a talent pool full of them in this years draft.

I agree with the first part, but think Thomas for Mixon and 1.03 is pretty fair. Trade overall seems fair to me and would come down to team need.

x2 the gap isn't crazy. I'd base it on team needs here. That 1.03 could be a great WR

I lean Mixon side. I have zero interest in Lamar Miller and expect the texans to address the position in the draft or FA. Hamilton at this point is well worth a late 1st. I like MT as much as the next guy but I don't think giving up a top 10 RB + 1.03 + late 1st for him is worth it.

I would agree the deal is close on value and I really like MT. But Mixon is in most people's 2nd round startup ranks and you would be thin after Zeke at RB. I'd keep Mixon and make the pick to add a WR. You have the WR depth to let a rookie develop without having to worry about rushing him to your starting lineup.

x2.

I'm surprised that the majority seem to be going the other way...

I love Mixon. Love him. But, you can't pass up M. Thomas here. The 1.03 in this draft class is a very small price to pay.

As for positional scarcity, that's irrelevant in this league given the starting requirements. Heck, OP is currently starting Hamilton!!! With this many flex players, you're more interested in the best players rather than positional demands.

The real counter-argument is that a deep starting line-up requires a deep bench, and trading away Mixon and 1.03 weakens the bench. That's true. But, 1.03 is a crap shoot. If the offer were, say, Mixon and a bona fide WR2, then passing has more weight. But, not here.

I'm taking Thomas.
