Watkins for Shepard/Abdullah

Question

12 team dynasty, 1QB, 2-3RBs, 3-4WRs, 1-2 TEs, 1 Def

My team before trade:

Rogers, Stafford

Howard, Crowell, Coleman, Abdullah, White, Jennings, Dwayne Washington

D Thomas, Adams, Perriman, Wallace, Shepard, Pryor, Britt, Gordon, Treadwell, Conley, B Miller

Walker, Fleener, Allen, Barnidge

Patriots

 

I gave up Shepard and Abdullah.

I received Watkins.

 

Thoughts?

Such a small price for massive upside.  In your league, Abdullah and Shepard are fringe starters that can easily be replaced.

Absolutely take it.

That is a great deal for Watkins. You gave up pretty much nothing for a potential elite player. I mean you have 3-4 guys just like Abdullah and Shepard already, you needed a potential stud.

I don't like the risk of Watkins in most cases because he is a headache to own but for the scraps you are giving up to get his upside I think you have to do it.

You bought Watkins low which is a good thing because this may be your last chance to do so.  It's a potential reward that's definitely worth the risk.

thanks for the reply's...i thought it was worth the risk as well, i like the potential of shepard and abdullah but if watkins bounces back i will have a solid WR1 for years to come.

You definitely won the trade, even if you didn't want watkins you can definitely flip him for a ton more than that.  In one of my dynasty's Sammy went for pick 1.5 and Alshon.  If you use a trade calculator you won the trade and gained 40% more value than you had.
