@hrr5010 @devinmci @FF_Contrarian
Wanted to get some perspectives near the trade deadline.
12 tm ppr. #1 in points. Lost in final four last 3 seasons.
Tevin, Ito, Cohen, Henry
Julio, OBJ, Diggs, Sutton, Mk Williams, A.Miller, Maurice Harris
OJ Howard, Cook
Free agents- Gio, Clement, C Patterson and the main handcuffs Brown/Ware/CJ Anderson. My budget is quite low.
Good success but a tier or two away from juggernaut.
I could get burned by over reliance on ATL and OBJ is risky with NYG QB. RB is obviously thin.
Who do you recommend selling and what are some reasonable targets?

What are the starting roster reqs?
What is the QB situation on the wire? QBs are hard to trade, but maybe moving off Ryan would be an easy way to lessen your expose to ATL a little. It doesn't really bother me that much though. @CAR isn't the ideal 'Ship week matchup, but they already put up 31 pts on them this year.

1 flex (non qb)
QB wire isn’t bad. Dak, Mayfield, Flacco, Keenum, Carr, Eli, Mariota

Received offer Lindsey for Diggs. Similar production thus far, I could use a RB, Lindsey has a nice schedule 14-16 but leaning no. Diggs ceiling is probably higher due to Freeman GL presence.

I wouldn't trade Diggs away, Freeman can still emerge in DEN.

I would watch todays news to see if Diggs is still questionable. I've had Diggs the last few seasons and he tends to underperform when going into games with questionable designations.

I would not really look to move on from Diggs. Particularly because the negative narrative around him + Thielen's emergence ensures that he's undervalued. so you're moving on from the WR1 in Minnesota to a guy in an RBBC, which is not quite different from Cohen. I'd rank Cohen ahead of Lindsay, because you can figure out exactly what a Cohen game will look like.
The guy I would be excited to move for Lindsay would be MK Williams or Sutton. You've got 3 plug and play WRs once playoffs roll around.

Agreed. The deal is off the table. Thanks!

Yeah that’s a good point but in past years it was lower body injuries. The current rib injury could be an issue and he’s gonna have to prove himself that he can play through injury.

Awesome thanks!! Diggs can be a league winner but not so much with Lindsey. Good point on Cohen gamescript predictability.

I agree I wouldn't be looking to move off Diggs, since you need 3 WRs.
I do think Lindsay has high upside, because he has room to grow in the receiving game, but Ito and Tevin are both playable while also providing insurance for the other. And Cohen is almost always startable--the Bills are in their own tier right now.
Sutton & Tevin are probably your most easily moved pieces in a "sell high" way, but there are not really many RBs in the 2nd tier that would be clear upgrades. Possibly you could package those two for Mixon or Mack or more likely Chubb or Aaron Jones, but mainly because it's not 100% clear that they upgrade you from Coleman.
I think the way I would play it is to see if you can spin your backup WRs into low-end RB depth that could potentially come into volume. For example, with Fournette coming back maybe you could get Yeldon for Mike Williams. Or Riddick.

Thanks Devin great advice. That’s been my inclination to make a smaller move.
