We’ve been limping along the 2017 thread but it’s September so it’s probably time for a new thread...
I have an offer on the table to trade Jimmy Graham away for an early 2019 2nd. Thoughts?
12-team 0.5PPR and we only have to start 1 TE. I’m loaded at every other position, so I’m thinking of this as just banking an asset to free up a roster spot for FA adds. I’d probably use that spot to pick up Ian Thomas

Yes. Who are your other TEs? But absolutely YES!
#3 By: Progression From the Mean, September 14th, 2018 11:47
Forgot to add other TEs, thanks for asking... I have Kittle and Jared Cook
#4 By: hrr5010, September 14th, 2018 13:44
I'd absolutely do. On the other hand, see if you can get a first back for Kittle as well. I tried to move Kittle all offseason for a second in a PPR league, but no one bit. PRICE HAS GONE UP FOLKS.
(i'm about to spam TE needy owners with Kittle for a first + marginal player. Will it work, who knows. I'm willing to find out!)

I posted this in the 2017 thread, I'll repost here...was offered to send away Enunwa and receive Tarik Cohen.
My initial thoughts are I'd rather have Enunwa, but I'm willing to entertain the offer.
#6 By: hrr5010, September 14th, 2018 15:26
No. I'd hold Enunwa for now. I think the WR is important, and while I'm a fan of Tarik... Enunwa could be the WR1 for the Jets. kinda wish the guy had come in slightly higher, but this is far too light. (and i'm a huge fan of Tarik)
#7 By: Progression From the Mean, September 14th, 2018 15:39
I agree. Enunwa will be a good WR3 for you going forward. Only risk point is that he's an FA this year, so as long as he's healthy he's going to make good $ in the offseason. You could view it as a good or bad thing that he might switch teams...
#8 By: Progression From the Mean, September 14th, 2018 15:41
trade Kittle? He's the one that made me comfortable trading away Graham. I think Cook is going to be his normal boom/bust self all year long so decent for a bye week fill-in, but I think Kittle is going to get plenty of targets to be a solid mid-range TE1.
Also my roster is a win-now roster, and I didn't see Graham as an upgrade over Kittle so figured I'd just try to bank some future value... I actually now own 4 2nd round picks next year in addition to my 1st, so I have plenty of draft pick capital to fill in holes this year or trade up in next year's draft.
#9 By: hrr5010, September 14th, 2018 20:15
It’s an either/or move. I’d much rather move graham and I agree whole heartedly. I think kittle gonna have a HUGE year. And this move will net you another 2nd. You’re gonna crush if you get jimmy off your squad

@fezic The fact that Rodgers could miss extended time makes me more willing to pull the trigger on Jimmy Graham, but as I noted in the Trades article, Graham played 93% snaps which is something that very few TEs do. Graham is someone I'm looking to add at this point, not cut loose. That said, I want to add Ian Thomas for sure, so Thomas + 2nd for Graham . . . yeah.
However, as @hrr5010 points out, now is the time to trade Kittle. I like him, but it's no sure thing that he's a difference-maker at the position, even if he's good. It's rare to see someone drop a ball as blatantly as Kittle did on Sunday and have their stock rising. With Graham/Cook, you have some safety to explore whether you might be able to get a Will Fuller, Mike Williams, Devin Funchess type player for Kittle, or a future 1st, which would be fairly exciting given that I can't tell you with much certainty whether Kittle or Thomas will have the brighter future.
@aweraky very league dependent. enunwa has the higher ceiling, especially if he's extended to be darnold's longterm security blanket. but, if he goes elsewhere, even if he's a good player, he won't necessarily be relevant in all leagues. in full ppr, i think cohen has a chance to be fantasy relevant for a very long time, which is a nice safe roster piece at a position that undergoes a lot of turmoil. on the other hand, cohen-type players are so often undervalued, that they are relatively easy to acquire. if it's a league where RBs are hoarded really aggressively, and my WR corps is really top-heavy already, maybe i'd lean cohen. if you can pretty easily add ekeler, lindsay, mike boone type players every year, i'm less attached to cohen, and i prefer a WR with breakout potential, which is usually pretty expensive to acquire.

Was offered the following trade, unsure how I feel about it.
Give: Lamar Miller
I do eventually need another QB, as I have Alex Smith right now (who is fine) but no backups for bye weeks/injuries.
Miller is my RB3 right now behind Coleman & DJ, and I have Buck Allen in a pinch if necessary.
I'm tempted to take it, as I think Baker has enormous upside, but on the flip side, it's a 1QB PPR league. I'm screwed during Smith's bye week, but otherwise should be ok, and rostering a 2nd QB over a solid (if unspectacular) seems like the definition of a luxury.
#12 By: Progression From the Mean, September 24th, 2018 12:50
Before answering: how many teams, how many roster spots? And what is the outlook of your team - is it “win now” or “maybe build for next year”? The last question is probably most relevant
#13 By: Adam Eraky, September 24th, 2018 12:56
Yea, kind of a mixed bag. 12 teams, 25 roster spots.
My relevant players/potential starters are:
RB: DJ, Tevin, Lamar, Buck Allen
WRs: AJ Green, Hopkins, Diggs, Enunwa
TE: ASJ, Jesse James, Gates
Besides Green & Gates, I'm fairly young across the board. I've started 2-0, but will likely lose this week. If I start falling out of it by mid-season, I could potentially move Green.
Like I said...mixed bag.

So here’s one I’ve got in the ole percolator at the moment... Superflex dynasty. My Mariota for his Njoku. I was thinking it’s Njoku+ but I’m not sure what the “plus” is. My other QBs are Stafford, Mahomes and Mayfield so I’m set there and I wouldn’t mind cashing Mariota in. Thanks
#16 By: hrr5010, September 28th, 2018 11:56
That's wayyyy too low for Mariota, even in SFLEX. is it TE prem? In any case, that's selling far too low on a QB in a format where QBs are very valuable.
#17 By: Jon Hearst, September 28th, 2018 12:12
Yeah, that’s what I thought. What I’m asking is, how big is the piece I need to get thrown in? A first? A second? A vet?
#18 By: hrr5010, September 28th, 2018 13:53
Hard to say without knowing rosters. Before the season started, Mariota's value was on the rebound. Despite having a bad season and a bit, he's shown flashes of being a top NFL QB.
In superflex, depending on your opponents' roster, i wouldn't hesitate to request a top-24 dynasty WR in exchange + Njoku.
#19 By: Matt, September 28th, 2018 15:46
In my two 12 team Dynasty Superflex startup drafts this August Mariota went at 5.01 and 5.02 (QB11 and QB13). Not sure if that helps you gauge his value or not. His schedule should lighten up the 2nd half of the season so if you trade him now you're definitely selling low on him.
#20 By: Matt, September 28th, 2018 16:16
In one of my 12 team superflex PPR squads I just traded Marvin Jones, Eric Ebron, and Alfred Morris for Will Fuller and Antonio Callaway. I'm pretty happy about it because I was worried about Marvin Jones' value tanking with Golladay's emergence. I already have Kelce, Hooper, and Andrews where I only start 1 TE so Ebron was just a bench piece.
Anyway, now I have an abundance of young WR talent: OBJ, Diggs, Juju, Landry, Fuller, Callaway, Tre'quan Smith, Cobb, Paul Richardson, and Jakeem Grant. Obviously the rest of my squad is not as strong.
QB: Bortles, Mariota, Foles, Kelly.
RB: Tevin, Sony, Aaron Jones, Hines, Foreman, Ivory.
Starting positions are QB, 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/R/T, 1 Q/W/R/T
I'm clearly weakest at QB, but with my WR depth I can afford to play 5 WR when all are healthy and not on a bye.
I currently have mine and another's 1st round pick (but no other picks next year). We're both 1-2 but based on last night I'll probably be 2-2 and the other pick will be 1-3.
The Lamar Miller owner wants to move him and I'm thinking that, while he will not have long term dynasty value, he may be a good guy to have until Foreman takes over. I'm thinking of offering Cobb + something for Miller, but don't know what a good plus would be.
Another owner hoarded QBs and has floated Matt Ryan to me in previous weeks. Would you recommend trading one of the firsts + Cobb or Richardson or Ryan? It looks like the Falcons will have to be uptempo and throw a lot due to their injuries to Defense and O-Line.
Finally, I know someone offered me Rex for Tre'quan before Rex went down, so I could also move him. He's got Ito Smith, who I like. Would asking for Ito + a 3rd be too much for Tre'Quan? Would it be more of a 1 for 1?
This is my first year in dynasty so I don't want to make any reckless moves but I also feel like I've got a really good squad that can compete now and in the future.
Sorry for the long post.
