I'm personally more for team A, Cooper still has top 5 upside. That being said, you could potentially get a great RB in this draft if you went with team B. This trade depends on team needs. At the 2.01 you're most likely going for the likes of Kareem Hunt or maaaybe Foreman.

Was offered David Johnson for the 1.01 and 1.04. Superflex league. My heads telling me to take it but my hearts telling me to take Corey Davis and a runningback. lol
#24 By: Justin, April 30th, 2017 23:32
That depends on how long you think David Johnson can perform at the level he is. RBs typically don't last long in the league, and can DJ perform when they move on from palmer, even if they struggle at QB?
#25 By: devinmci, May 1st, 2017 02:19
Take it. And if you have any doubts about DJ, he's one of the most tradeable possible assets. You can trade him for Lesean McCoy and Dez or something like that without any trouble.

Was just offered J Winston for DeMarco Murray straight up.
this is from the previous year's league winner who also has David Johnson and Andrew Luck, but not much else in RB depth (which he proved he didn't need...since he won).
I have CJA, Lamar miller, Wendell Smallwood, Matt Jones, Gio Bernard, and Christine Michael.
Cam is my current QB, though I'm a bit worried about his shoulder, and was thinking about attempting to trade him anyway once his trade value recovers.
This seems like it might be a good time to cash in my Murray shares and get an up and coming QB that just got a host of new weapons, but it also leaves me pretty weak at RB, and with 2 QBs in a 1 QB league. (standard scoring, 6 pts/passing TD).
also of note, we just had a couple teams 'reorganize' for lack of a better word when we had 2 owners get replaced, one has an obvious need at RB, and has Amari Cooper and the 1.05, both of which I think he would be willing to trade...not sure if I want to give up my draft capital just yet.
#27 By: Robert Strong, May 4th, 2017 09:35
@Hostage I'd do the trade. I think with the weapons TB picked up Winston could be the QB1 this year. Plus Henry will probably eat into Murray's touches a lot more.
I need major help at RB. My RBs currently look like Tevin Coleman, Gillislee, Booker, Aaron Jones, McKinnon, Rawls, Lat Murray, Quizz Rodgers, Langford.
I'm stacked at WR and TE with AB, Baldwin, Jordy, Michael Thomas, ARob, Tyrell Williams, Goodwin, Pharoh Cooper, Hurns, Jordan Reed, Kyle Rudolph
Do I trade Michael Thomas for Jeffrey and Christian McCaffrey?
#28 By: Hostage, May 4th, 2017 10:18
If you're talking Michael Thomas for Alshon Jeffrey and CMcC, then yes, I make that trade. you have really good WR depth, so even though you are giving up a great up and comer in Thomas, it's also possible that he regresses a bit. I think you're selling him at a pretty good price. You're getting a WR1-2, which is what Thomas is. You also get McCaffrey who went to a great spot and should be a nice piece for the panthers. I think they will use him in a lot of different ways, so if you're in PPR he's even better. but even in a standard league, I like that trade a lot. noticeably better in RB, with only a little drop off in WR.

Thought i'd share a couple of trades I've made with my picks on the clock:
Received: L. Miller
Received: CJ Anderson, 4.06, 4.11
Leagues are both 12 tm ppr. I'm biased obviously, but I feel I killed those trades lol.
#30 By: Michael Anderson, May 7th, 2017 10:47
I have the 1.02 and plan to take Corey Davis. I also have the 1.01 and plan to take Fournette there.
I have been offered Baldwin, 2.05 and 2018 first. Seems solid, but not exciting, as I love the situation Davis is in.
I could counter and try to get Michael Thomas, plus something. He also has the 1.05. Maybe ask for Baldwin and the 1.05? That would shore up my wrs and I could add Cook or Mixon.
What would you do?
My wrs are K. Allen, Hopkins, Watkins, Cooper, Marshall.
rbs are weaker with CJ Anderson, Hill, Gio, Dixon.
#31 By: Hostage, May 7th, 2017 11:35
wow. as a guy that owns both L Miller and CJA and the 1.10, I would have to agree that you crushed it. I would easily have made those trades.
who did your trade victim end up taking with the 1.10 that he wanted more than miller? I'm just curious.
#32 By: Hostage, May 7th, 2017 12:20
Man, I think I would stand pat. the 1.01-2 in this draft are pretty nice. Davis is the best WR (arguably) that went into the best situation. Fournette is a stud in his own right, and should be the bell cow.
I would auto reject the baldwin/2nd rounders.
I think the only way I make a trade based on what you've said is the 1.02 for the 1.05 AND Thomas. but that's probably a little greedy. the way I look at it though, is Davis is gonna be around with Mariota a lot longer than Brees will be with Thomas, so you deserve more to drop down.
If you really want to make that trade, I would wait until you're on the clock and see what happens. no sense in rushing a trade until you have to. always seems like the offers get better when the decision has to be made immediately.
#33 By: Adam Eraky, May 7th, 2017 12:52
At 1.10, he took Kamara. At 2.02, he took Zay Jones. The Jones pick was disappointing, as that's who I wanted, and I owned the 2.04, but it's alright
#34 By: Michael Anderson, May 7th, 2017 18:19
I think you are spot on Hostage. Looking through rankings it seems like a good deal, but my gut is stopping me.
Good point about Brees and Thomas, also. The situation Davis is in looks ideal.
It helps to get an outside opinion with big decisions like these. I think I will stand pat.
#35 By: Hostage, May 9th, 2017 16:52
working on a trade currently: got a little intel that the first 4 draft picks in our rookie draft are going to go fournette, cook, mccaffrey, mixon, in some order...which makes the best player in the draft available at 5. the guy with pick 5 is RB needy, and has his eye on DeMarco Murray (his first year in dynasty, god love him...). working on a handshake agreement where if none of those top 4 RBs fall to him, I send Demarco, Gio, and Cobb for the 1.05 and the 3.05. trade calc has this as a big loss for me, but I trade Murray with value, give up minimal depth with Cobb, and essentially cut Gio. I can certainly sustain the loss of gio and Cobb, and while it makes my RBs a little more putrid (Lamar miller and CJA become my only real startables at this time), getting a young WR for some RB depth seems like a win. I'm a contender, have finished 1st, 2nd, and 4th the last 4 years, but this seems like an easy sell high buy low on great pieces...provided everything shakes out right.
I would also still hold the 1.08 and 1.10, so I could potentially add some RB depth with Kamara, or foreman, etc if I'm willing to reach a bit.
#36 By: Adam Eraky, May 9th, 2017 17:25
If you have the depth to do it, I would. Instead of counting it as pick 5 in the trade calculator, put in Corey Davis instead. He's worth about 10 points more than the 1.05
#37 By: jesseross99, May 10th, 2017 20:05
Pull the trigger right now. Although I will say, I think Cobb is undervalued this year.
#38 By: jesseross99, May 10th, 2017 20:14
I'm in a 12-team half-ppr dynasty league, strong at skill positions but weak at QB - just Tannehill. I think I can get Hoyer with the 4.04 of our "rookie" draft and stream the two pretty successfully.
I could also trade the 1.04 for Tyrod, Isaiah Crowell and the 2.07.
Tyrod and Crowell could be out of a job in 2018; they could also both be top-10 options (that Browns oline is huge). And 2.07 will be a real player.
But am I just trading a dollar bill for four quarters? Crowell would not start for me in week 1 I don't think so it's like, the overall deal value really needs to be there.
#39 By: Hostage, May 10th, 2017 20:39
he doesn't want to make the trade until he's on the clock...so hopefully he doesn't get cold feet, so hopefully our handshake deal will stand.
i would keep the 1.04. hoyer isn't sexy, but i would much rather have Mixon, McCaffrey, Cook, etc. than Tyrod. 2.07 is a decent player, but he's not one of those big 4 RBs.
If the best QB available on the wire/draft is hoyer, then people definitely have startable QBs they could move. I think you can get way more than tyrod and crowell. and if you draft best available, and no one wants to trade with you right away, i bet that changes as we get closer to the season, or even after it starts. plus, tannehill was serviceable last year, and it's another year with the QB whisperer Gase calling the shots.
i say keep your pick.
#40 By: jesseross99, May 10th, 2017 21:04
Got it, yes hopefully it does stand.
The real thing driving me to think about it is my (irrational?) love for Crowell. Couldn't he be an RB1 behind that line? Dude was #1 recruit out of high school and SEC freshman of the year before his legal shit happened, otherwise we'd think of him as having excellent pedigree.
I could probably also trade the 2.04 for one of Tyrod, Rivers or Big Ben, but the owners of those teams won't take less.
I agree I could just roll with Tannehil, I've been an illegal formation penalty away from winning this league with him as my QB haha
#41 By: Hostage, May 10th, 2017 21:22
yeah, he probably could. especially with the browns expected to be a little better, and maybe scoring a bit more. if they get into some positive game flow, that could increase his work too. i guess i can't argue with that. i just can't stand the browns, so i refuse to see anything good. but i just went back and looked at my leagues top RBs from last year (std scoring), and he was the RB 14, so yeah, being an RB1 is not unreasonable at all.
i'd probably try to make a trade straight up for crowell then, you might be able to get him for that 2.04.
