Should I make this trade? 

Post#1 » by andrewww » Sat Sep 3, 2016 5:46 am

10 team league, 2 WR 2 RB 1 TE 1 FLEX (WR/RB/TE) 7 BENCH. NON PPR LEAGUE.

Would you trade Antonio Brown for Amari Cooper AND Le'Veon Bell?

This league puts an emphasis on winning the playoffs. Top 4 teams in this 10 man league make the playoffs in weeks 15 & 16.

RB Jamaal Charles
RB Frank Gore
WR Antonio Brown
WR Jordy Nelson
TE Jordan Reed
FLEX Jarvis Landry
K Brandon McManus

It would depend how much faith I have in Nelson being fully healthy. If so I think it's a fair deal as Cooper is a downgrade, but it's going from a likely top 5 to a top 15 and Bell makes your RB position much better.

I don't know if I would do it personally in a 10 team without knowing what the waiver wire looks like because there should be good RBs available on the waiver wire and you're sitting good at other positions and would be trading an elite WR.

Yes, I would make the trade in a heartbeat. Bell is a stud..I would take him in first round over Brown if he wasn't suspended. Cooper on top of that it's a no brainer. There are TONS of good sleeper WRs...if you need to know any let me know or just look at the NFL General forum which has a bunch of fantasy experts.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Opinions are split right down the middle from what I gather here and my some others outside of here.

No. Bell can't be relied upon to stay healthy.

I do this trade 100% as Bell imo is the top running back or at very least top 3. Cooper is also a top wr with big upside on a trending up Oakland offense. Also, id like the trade even more if it's a keeper league.

I would do this trade if for no other reason you need depth.
