trade proposal help

Post by AWvsCBsteeeerike3 »

Standard PPR scoring.

I've got Wentz on my bench behind Brady and McKinnon of the Vikings as a RB with Chris Thompson and Mark Ingram as my other options.

Currently in 2nd place trying to catch a guy that has Zeke, Hunt, David Johnson and Alex Smith.

A guy in 4th place offered me Gurley for McKinnon and Wentz.

Good deal or no? Seems like it is given I have no place to put Wentz.

I haven't been following Fantasy for a while. How much better is Gurley than McKinnon. Seems like it might be worth it. Also, has Brady had his buy? I don't recall.

McKinnon has been great the past month since Cook went down for the season averaging like 20 points a week. He's not the only back, he's more of a specialty weapon. Catches screen passes (which has value in PPR). Gurley to date has been the best back in the league though averaging like 23 points a week. Seems like more of a sure thing than McKinnon who relies somewhat on getting those screen passes. Isn't going to line up and carry it 20+ times a game.

That's tough. I'd be very tempted if the Rams strength of schedule looks better than McKinnon's.

I'd take the deal, especially considering McKinnon isn't the lead back like you said. The recently acquired Latavius Murray is. Gurley IS the offense for the Rams.
