Blockbuster Trade Offer - HELP (1 Viewer)

12 man PPR - 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1FLX, 1DST

I'm sitting at last place after a horrid week 1 outing where my team scored just 88 pts. Here's the offer:

I WOULD GET:

Kyle Pitts, Rashaad Penny, Rhamondre Stevenson, Melvin Gordon, Jahan Dotson, Treylon Burks

I WOULD GIVE:

George Kittle, Travis Etienne, Antonio Gibson, JD McKissic

Hate the idea of losing both Etienne and Gibson but it does appear to be a haul that makes my team very deep.

MY TEAM AS OF NOW:

QB: Trey Lance

RB: Derrick Henry, Travis Etienne, Antonio Gibson, JD McKissic, Tyler Allgeier

WR: Tyreek Hill, Allen Robinson, DK Metcalf, Toney, MVS, Christian Watson, Landry (and Jameson Williams on IR)

TE: Kittle, Engram

You get deeper but I don't know about better. This boils down to your thoughts on ETN and Gibson vs Penny/Stevenson/Gordon. I probably like the Penny/Stevenson/Gordon side but I think it's much riskier.

Yeah, I think right now I'm leaning toward trying to get him to accept an offer that removes Gibson from the package, but obviously that means I won't be getting the haul he's offering right now.

Maybe something like Kittle, Etienne, McKissic for Pitts, Stevenson, and one of Dotson/Burks?

I am not sold on that move either. I guess I would lean yes (and would choose Dotson) but it's close and wouldn't really be chomping at the bit to do it.

Would you rather stand pat with the roster I have right now? I do feel like Etienne is going to find his stride and Kittle is going to get healthy, so maybe I don't need to try to get Pitts (who I do believe is going to have a slightly better season than Kittle).

I think this trade is so lopsided in your favor I would be surprised people won't argue collusion. Kittle is practically nothing anymore, Etienne is the backup 3rd down back. Gibson will probably be in a time share in a few weeks. I would take Pitts and Penny for Kittle and Etienne in a heartbeat and you also get Rhamondre Stevenson, Melvin Gordon, Jahan Dotson, Treylon Burks?? C'mon man!

Yeah I just couldn't pull the trigger. Felt like I was selling way low on Etienne and Kittle. I personally believe Kittle comes back to form as a top-5 guy. And I believe Etienne becomes a top-15 back at the very least. Also just really liked Gibson's usage in the passing game. That was super encouraging and it's something I think stays even if/when Brian Robinson is healthy enough to contribute.

In that deal, I really only like Pitts. I don't believe Penny or Gordon have season-long value. And I don't think Stevenson gets anything more than a 50/50 timeshare in a bad offense.

Obviously my team would become much deeper but my starting lineup becomes much worse.
