10 team standard (not PPR) keeper league with a live auction draft.
There is no TE starting position - TEs are just treated as WRs.
Start QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs and a Flex.
I'm stacked at RB and am trying to trade for D. Hopkins. The Hopkins owner wants Brees plus TWO of the following: M. Lynch, K. Johnson or P. Lindsay. I've said I won't do a 3 for 1 deal, but he's sticking to his guns. The rest of his team is trash, except for A. Brown. So putting a trade together is tough, because there's nothing to get back.
The thing is, I also have Gurley, M. Ingram and C. Thompson.
If I pull the trigger, I'll be starting P. Rivers instead of Brees (I also have Bortles), and will lose my RB depth. I also lose the ability to keep Lindsay for $11 out of a $600 salary cap in 2019 and Lynch at $52 and K. Johnson at $60 (or at least two of those three).
I currently start K. Allen, G. Tate and Ertz at WR, with Boyd, Funchess and Kittle on the bench.
I'm tied for second place currently, so I'm leaning toward just standing pat and keeping my RB depth in case of injuries and hoping that Ertz and Tate keep putting up good numbers.
QBs also score 1 point for 20 yards, rather than 25 yards, and there are bonuses that start at 330 yards, so Brees is ahead of Mahomes and Ryan in this league and has put up an average of 33 points per game, including 52 in week 2.
Is Hopkins worth a 3 for 1 or is that just too much to pay? There's also a chance the Hopkins owner would take Lynch, K. Johnson and Lindsay and let me keep Brees.
Thanks for any comments you'd like to share.
