Thielen for Barkley? WHIR

Question

Redraft 12 team league 1 PPR 

Trade Mack and Thielen for Barkley and Golladay? I am currently 8-2.

Any one think Thielen will regress while Golladay improves with Tate gone? Barkley over Mack is the easy choice, not sure if giving up Thielen is worth it. 

Team is below:

Matt Ryan

Thielen

Josh Gordon

David Johnson

Fournette

 Kelce

Doyle

Baldwin

Mack

Josh Adams

 Edmonds

Sutton

 Hyde

The Barkley upgrade makes any WR downgrade negligible.

It's tempting I guess I am really high on Mack and feel like I am taking a major hit at WR.  Not sure how I feel about Golladay, Baldwin and Gordon as my WR options.

What are your starting requirements?  That has a big part of this evaluation because you have better RB depth than WR depth so losing Thielen could be a bigger hit than gaining Barkley for your overall starting lineup.

So making this deal means you are playing three RB's every week with DJ, Fournette & Barkley.   So you only need two WR's.  Gordon is probably your WR1 with Thielen gone so you would rotate the WR2 spot to Golladay/Baldwin/Sutton based on matchups.  Do you like that better than having your two WR's as Thielen & Gordon and rotating your flex spot between Mack & Baldwin? 

 

The trade takes away a lot of flexibility since your flex spot is gone but it probably makes your overall team better.  I would probably do it.

I'd echo Gally's thoughts here. Barkley makes your starting lineup better, but less versatile, that is a trade off that I'd be happy to make.
