Yes. My leagues are 12 teams, albeit with big rosters (28-30 players with 2 IR slots) so it’s definitely a different perspective.My “big” money league is16 teams. That’s the perspective of where I’m coming from. He’s a starter right now with a chance of putting up excellent RB2 numbers in those leagues. I completely understand where you are coming from thoughI guess I'm not seeing him as a difference maker for a Championship team - what's his highest fantasy points game so far? You're speculating he'll score a lot of points, but KC just doesn't run the ball enough and McKinnon is used as the pass catcher.I agree he could easily be replaced but I don't see how you can trade him for a mid to late first rounder if you are a playoff team. Production now could mean the difference of winning the league vs being an early playoff casualty
If some one wants to over-pay for his production, I'd take it and trust the rest of my depth. The only teams that he starts for me are on two rebuild teams - he wouldn't make the lineup on my contending teams. I drafted him in every league but one. I was a big fan, but taking a first for him is a no-brainer.
ETA: “no brainer” sounds like an insult to anyone on the other side, so I’ll say I can certainly see the benefit of keeping him. He is just getting started as the starter so more production could be on the way.
