Looking for trade advice in a PPR Keeper league with the deadline two days away.

The guys who owns Deandre Hopkins put him on the block.

He told me he's interested in Chubb (8th round keeper) anda draft pick.

So he's got my attention.

If I trade Chubb my RB's are thin, but I can play Michael Thomas, DeAndre Hopkins and Odell Beckham every week at WR. Would you do that trade? My team would be:

QB: Brees
WR: Thomas, Hopkins, Beckham, Golladay, Snead, Coutee (droppable)
RB: Mixon, Kerryon Johnson, Cook
TE: Burton, Reed

So, is that team better with Chubb or Hopkins?

I will likely keep Beckham and Thomas, so while chubb is an attractive keeper, I have other options.
I would do that in a ppr

Your wrs are sick and you still have Cook, Mixon and Johnson.
You could always trade Golladay for another wr like Murray (Cooks backup just in case) or Alex Collins.
You're actually thinking of this?

If you have a chance to win your league, you do not even hesitate. Hopkins is a bona fide stud. With Cook coming back, you still have 3 good enough choices at RB.


My choice this week other than QB, who I have no clue who to start...

Kerryon against Chicago
Ito Smith against Cleveland
Smith vs Clev

Chicago vs the run is #1. Tough to run on them. Riddick is back and affects Johnsonís snaps.
Well my team is barely  
pjcas18 : 11/8/2018 9:08 am : link
just "in the hunt" I'm not dominating (other than in pts - f-ing h2h).

and I would have to start K. Johnson this week since Hopkins is on a bye.

tough call dep.

CHI good against the run and CLE near the bottom, so I'd probably lean Smith.

I

I find it really hard to give quality

advice in peoples keeper leagues. ON the surface, that's a no brainer, but only you really know.
Seems like a no-brainer  
pjcas18 : 11/8/2018 9:21 am : link
but my team is 5 - 4 in 4th place in a 12-team league.

there are 5 teams or so at 5 - 4 or 4 - 5 and a couple just behind at 3 - 6.

so nothing is locked up.

If I trade Chubb it worsens my team this week.

and there's always the chance I decide to keep Chubb - say he goes off second half.

But..my team is absolutely better this year with Hopkins, but at this point W"s are everything.

plus I'd need to include a draft pick. I'm thinking 4th round, but who knows.
QB advice

Ryan Fitzpatrick vs Washington
or
Carson Wentz vs Dallas

Thanks in advance
Pick 2 FLEX Non-PPR  
Mike in NY : 11/8/2018 12:50 pm : link
0.1 points per yard rushing or receiving, 6 points for TD

I purposely tanked Week 10 with my starting QB out so 2 of my RB's (Lindsay and Collins) and one of my WR's (Hopkins) are also on bye week

My options are:
Tre'quan Smith vs. Cincy
Pierre Garcon vs. New York Giants
Chris Carson vs. Los Angeles Rams
Doug Martin vs. Los Angeles Chargers

I have Corey Davis as one of my WR's this week and Austin Ekeler as one of my RB's so conceivably I could always bench one of them. If I wanted to go Free Agent route my options are Adam Humphries (vs. Washington), Christian Kirk (vs. KC), or Josh Doctson (vs. Tampa)

I actually like Fitzpatrick in this because you know he is going to throw a lot. I don't trust Dallas to do much on offense against Philly's pass rush so Philly likely will be running the ball a lot to milk the clock.

I'd probably go Wentz but I think it's a toss up.
Tougher and tougher each week  
kelsto811 : 11/8/2018 1:02 pm : link
to make the right picks. In half point PPR, which two of this bunch would you pick?

Carlos Hyde @ Ind
Peyton Barber vs. WSH
Chris Godwin vs. WSH
David Moore @ LAR (I have Wilson starting)
Maurice Harris @ TB
Dede Westbrook @ IND
Sterling Shep @ SF
Doug Baldwin @ LAR

I'd make the trade. Chubb in the 8th is pretty decent keeper value, so I don't think you need to throw too high a pick back. Maybe start with an 8th (so he essentially gets to keep Chubb for free). I'd go up to a 4th if I had to, but that feels like an overpay. I definitely want Hopkins over Chubb if I'm in the playoff mix though.

In theory I'd rather go Kerryon. Just don't know if Judge Ito's touches are reliable.

It's close, but give me Fitz if you need upside and Wentz if you need floor.

Pretty sure Carson is already ruled out. No way can you start Martin with any confidence. If I have to pick one from that list, it's Tre'quan.

I'd consider Humphries or Kirk over Tre'quan

I rejected the trade. He wanted Chubb, a 2nd round pick and a 6th round pick for Hopkins and a 15th and 16th. I get the Hopkins value obviously but that's too much for me to trade at 5 - 4. If I was 7 - 2 or 8 - 1 I'd consider it, but at 5 - 4 with a tough stretch schedule (I play the 1st and 2nd place teams plus other contenders) I just couldn't justify it - because if I lose this week I have a good chance of being done based on my remaining schedule.

Harris and Shep for me. I'd also consider the Seattle guys, have to see how Baldwin is for Sunday though as it sounds like his knee might be acting up again.
Who do you think is a better depth  
pjcas18 : 11/8/2018 2:31 pm : link
WR Willie Snead or Maurice Harris?

He's never been in my lineup, but that's an attractive schedule.

I am in a very competitive, 10 team , 2 qb league, .5 ppr.

I was offered Mike Evans and Blake Bortles for Andrew Luck and Courtland Sutton. Would you do this in a 2 qb league where I have Cam and Mitch already?

I then could also potentially trade TY Hilton for Fournette. Thanks

QB 1: Cam
QB 2: Luck
WR 1: Hopkins
WR 2: Hilton
WR 3: Golden Tate
RB 1: Dalvin Cook
RB 2: Tarik Cohen
Flex: Allen Robinson (Rotation on matchups)

Kicker: Stream
DEF: Stream
Bench: Mitch Trubisky

Bench: Dion Lewis
Bench: Crowell
Bench: Tyrell Williams

Seems like QBs are more valuable in your league. Too much of a drop off if you dump Luck. I would not do it.
