I would think you need get no less than 1.02 for him. Hopefully you get more. I think you can start by offering the high first and see what the response is. Where are your picks slotted in first and second?

Do you have sufficient starters behind him? I'm not considering moving him until that window between the NFL draft and the start of rookie drafts. I think now is a good time to shop him, but only if I have suitable replacements in my lineup. I'd settle for mid 1-mid 2 if I check that box, but would set my sights higher to start.

Poking around for multiple leagues.  Seems cheap for a constant top wideout so thought I'd ask what's being seen or asked for.  Thanks

Tentative rookie RB/WR tiers after diving into clips and stats this weekend:   RB Josh Jacobs, Raiders - No major weaknesses and walks into a starting role. Power, hands, elusiveness, and e

That is interesting. As a Gordon owner here and there, I think I'd have jumped on that offer in any league I have him, without even looking at my own roster or that of the owner sending me the pick.

Wow I think people really need to go back and look at the last 10 years of 1st/2nd round NFL WR picks.  These guys hit at what, a 20% rate?  15%?  It's a miserable number.  I'd be pretty surprised if

What is DeAndre Hopkin's value rookie pick wise?  Is he a buy with a high 1st + 2nd as the calculators are showing or should it take more/less? 

I have Hopkins in one league. Open to moving him because, while he helped me to a couple of championships in that league, my window has closed and I need to rebuild, and he's probably my best asset to do so.  I received an offer of 2022 1st (from a team that made the playoffs this year and presumably would be even better position in 2022 after a year with Hopkins) and a couple of mid-round picks this year, which fell pretty short for me.

Anyone care to speculate on how much value Melvin Gordon has left?

 

I would consider buying him if I needed a second RB and my squad was devoid otherwise.  Today I'd pay a 3rd for him.  If he's gets through free agency unscathed, I'd go mid/late 2nd.  If he gets through the draft with only day-3 competition added, I'd go mid/early 2nd.

 

If I have a few RB2s already, I'd add a round to each of the above scenarios.

He'll be 29, at a position other then QB in one start QB leagues is the deepest in fantasy and getting deeper. He's at an age that basically no matter what kind of season he realistically could put up he's an annually declining asset. If you are paying for him now at his age I'd have to think it only makes sense if you are in win now mode and as good as he was last year it was not some type of 2019 Thomas or Davante Adams stuff from last year. Typically 18-19 PPG WR's are not changing the dynamic of a league.

It seems to me the best time to move him would be in-season to a team that is contending but believes that rock solid WR1 is what they lack. Right now most people see WR's all over and think they can get what they need, some will, but generally someone will need someone like Hopkins to help them think they can get over the hump. Obvious problem with this is you don't get a pick until 2022  and if you are picking up another teams picks that views them as a contender, and not another pick they own, that's not very exciting about cashing him out for a later first.

I'd for sure value 1.2 over him now but I'd not be afraid to hold him into the season either if I did not get what I wanted. I think of a league I was in last year and this guy did a masterful job with his team. He won the league in 2019, then about a week or two into the season just started trading away a chunk of his team. Got a bunch of 2021 firsts and some good young players, I hate to say Justin Jefferson from me. Then during the season he started buying up players like J Taylor and Dobbins with the 2021 picks after they got off to a slow start. I bring this up to point out that just if getting a good 2021 pick for Hopkins is your goal, even if you hold him into the season, it just might mean you can buy some of the 2021 players you like a little cheaper if they don't start out with a bang.

Yeah I tried moving him for 1.01 in an FFPC league (to a team that is not rebuilding or anything) and he countered with 1.07/Hopkins for 1.01 😮

There is a dichotomy (or is it schizophrenia?) about high draft picks, isn't there?

Rebuilding or not, I wouldn't want to pay the 1.1 for Hopkins. 

But at the same time, I don't think Harris or Chase are more valuable than Hopkins.

I can see that. He's already putting you in sort of a losing situation if you're thinking about reaching a center point between the two. That's a lot to ask.

I have Nick Chubb on one championship and two rebuilding Zealots leagues. I think he's a better back than Dalvin Cook and might even think he's the best back in the league.

But it appears I'm on an island with that. In the rebuilding leagues I know I wouldn't get what I'd expect to in ac trade return - a couple high picks/players.

Do people really fear Kareem Hunt stealing touches that much? I just think Hunt is inordinately productive for a #2 back and doesn't really take anything from Chubb.

So what is he worth in trade?

I think Chubb is the better runner, probably the best in the league. But he's never going to catch a lot of balls so that caps his upside.

For sure. I like Chubb a lot but I watched him drop 3 balls in the playoff game. Really easy balls. I have him ranked pretty high but I understand why others don't.

Chubb's 25, so he's beginning the downswing of his career, really. He's still probably worth the 1.01+ in this draft, though as you said upthread, people are psychotic in their dichotomy about that. He's the best pure runner in the league, alongside Dobbins, in my opinion. But he has Hunt and his own contributions in the passing game to worry about. I don't know what that means, but that's where I've got him.

I'm with you on Hopkins. Adding to your astute evaluation, I think his situation dictates a little more downgrade. Kyler will get his rushing TDs, most of which will come from red zone offense. If he were playing with more of a pocket passer, I'd hold him. As is, I'm actively pursuing trades.

Only if that difference is in your favor. If it isn't it is just laborious, tedious and ultimately rarely fruitful to try and get anywhere with. I'll say this, though. Those owners who you can't seem to get anything done with because you're too far apart on prices *are* the ones that eventually will surprise you because they hate some player that you like. So I do agree you should at least keep them on your radar. But it is almost impossible to know when that might happen. And if they happen to be a "must win all trades" kind of person then forget about it.

What if it was Hopkins/1.06 for 1.01 plus a future 1st (or some equivalent level of value)? Is that too big of negotiation bump to warrant a counter (if not an official counter in the system, a feeler question to the owner)? 

Reason I ask is because I more or less agree with what you're saying. When you don't feel like working with someone, you don't necessarily need to explain why to them or us. But I think sometimes what one owner would consider a non-starter offer, another would turn into a counter negotiation that ends up working. Dude may have been lowballing you (he was), but he may be willing to pay quite a bit more if pushed. I'm *not* saying that applies here, just food for thought.

Yeah I'm not above robbery, but it just isn't something I'm looking for. If it happens it happens. I am sooooo willing to let myself get robbed, or to make my partner think he is robbing me, if I get a deal that I think helps my team. And I have often made deals that other owners have complained to me about in terms of having greatly helped my opponent. Yet my teams keep improving and winning. Yeah there are some owners that will not do a trade, and have even said so, unless they think they are winning it.

Well for the record it was 1.07 😁

 

And I would consider trading Hopkins plus 1.07 for 1.01 in the right situation - for instance if I love the rookie at 1.01 and I'm relatively indifferent between what's there at 1.07 and my 2nd round pick ( or if i have extra picks etc.).

 

Long winded way of saying it didn't seem so bad to me and I could work with that guy.

I think Hopkins and the seven pick is a legit offer for najee. In comparison i was offered the one pick for my aiyuk diontae and the ten pick. I don’t have much depth at wr besides those two and mclaurin and Dj Moore. We Start two to four wrs also. So makes it hard for me to pull the trigger since I won’t be picking again until pick thirty.

I’m also going to try to move Hopkins when my league unlocks rosters. I think he’s still got plenty of value to a win-now team. He’s about to turn 29 (June) which makes him less attractive long-term, but for a WR-needy team he’s still got value. 

I do think he’s got a chance to improve on his 2020 numbers after the year of experience working with Murray & the new offense. He hardly looks like he lost a step. 

I’m probably looking for players more than picks, but if I were offered a top 5 pick for him I’d have a hard time saying no. 

I’ll put him on the block and see what happens. 🤷🏼‍♂️

You should get more than a top five pick for him. He's above the 1.01 right now.

I'm glad you said this as I did not think it was that egregious either, more IMO what I would describe as a  little rich to pay for 1.1 then something really awful. I personally think a later first with Hopkins is just about right but at the moment I have a tier cutoff at 7 and while I know that may not hold I'm going to hold that line until it's not the case.

In the same FFPC SF I just posted about in the trades thread as having 33 trades since Jan 1st. I just turned down an offer of my Mahomes for his Mayfield, two 2022 1sts, 2.10

Oh man he just upped it to include a future 2nd and 3.06. He is the one I sold the package to move up to 1.03 for. I think he thought he was offering me something outlandish that I wouldn't accept, and then I did and now he doesn't have 1.03 anymore and is panicking. 

But Mayfield, two 1sts, two 2nds and a 3rd is a haul. My biggest concern right now is how do I turn him down without being a jerk about it.

Being the best NFL RB (which i think Chubb is in the conversation for) is different than being the best FF RB.  Chubb's usage is what holds him back for FF purposes.  He loses TD's and 3 down work which is a great benefit to the Browns for keeping him healthy and fresh.  It just doesn't help his fantasy outlook.

Except that he scored the 4th most TDs while missing four games. And was still top 15 in carries.

I guess I'm content with keeping him on a roster. I think people analyze him all wrong.

I have Dalvin and Chubb in a zealots league. Chubb looks to be the slightly superior talent, but Dalvin is the man for Minn. Chubb is only 4 months younger, but much less wear. I will be looking to trade Dalvin the year he turns 29.

I agree that he is still a top 12ish RB and have no problem with that production.  The perception of his production is what limits his return value in trade scenarios, and he would be in contention for RB1 overall if Hunt wasn't there.

Hunt is not a threat. He's there to keep Chubb fresh. I'm riding him through '21 and hope his '22 doesn't take his value. I won't think about moving him til that time.

As a Mahomes owner in a superflex league he is borderline untouchable, unless an offer completely knocked my socks off. I feel like anyone trading me for Mahomes needs to overpay. Barring injury, he is the most valuable Dynasty asset for at least the foreseeable future.

That said, I have been contemplating offering him up to see what offers come in. I know the Watson owner in my league covets him & has several assets I’d like to acquire… That’s something I would probably consider if I could work it to my advantage for Watson plus a running back. 

i’ve got two straight third place finishes so if I can turn Hopkins and Mahomes into three players it might put me over the top. If I can get younger in the process, I’d call that a win.

Watson, Higgins, CEH For Hopkins & Mahomes, maybe a pick? 

I know that owner pretty well, so it might be do-able. IMO the drop-off from Mahomes to Watson is largely psychological. Of course there’s risk that Watson goes to a terrible team, or holds out...

Maybe I’m thinking wishfully. Would that trade offer be considered offensively low?

Yeah I don't know. I think there are some other elite options at QB that would probably get me to consider something like this. I think I agree the dropoff is psychological and worth exploring. But for me, in addition to being capable of things I've never seen anyone else do before, Mahomes also has Hill and Kelce for at least a few more years and KC is bound to continue to bring in playmakers throughout his career. I still think CEH is a stud. The upside of that offense serves as a tiebreaker of it's own, even though there isn't a tie in the first place. But I do think chunking him out for pieces makes sense if you aren't in a position to win now. I also think people underestimate how good their teams can be ~8 months from now.

I'm glad you said this as I did not think it was that egregious either, more IMO what I would describe as a  little rich to pay for 1.1 then something really awful. I personally think a later first with Hopkins is just about right but at the moment I have a tier cutoff at 7 and while I know that may not hold I'm going to hold that line until it's not the case.

I have tier 1 stopping at pick for tier ends at pick 7 pick 8 starts a very long and unorganized third tier for me at this point.

I have Dalvin and Chubb in a zealots league. Chubb looks to be the slightly superior talent, but Dalvin is the man for Minn. Chubb is only 4 months younger, but much less wear. I will be looking to trade Dalvin the year he turns 29.

Of course, his value then will be a fraction of what it is today, possibly zero.

I have Nick Chubb on one championship and two rebuilding Zealots leagues. I think he's a better back than Dalvin Cook and might even think he's the best back in the league.

But it appears I'm on an island with that. In the rebuilding leagues I know I wouldn't get what I'd expect to in ac trade return - a couple high picks/players.

Do people really fear Kareem Hunt stealing touches that much? I just think Hunt is inordinately productive for a #2 back and doesn't really take anything from Chubb.

So what is he worth in trade?

I doubt you're on an island in thinking Chubb is a better player than Cook.  I also doubt you're on an island in thinking that Chubb may be the best back in the league.

The problem though is yes, Hunt, and how it relates to fantasy.

The reality is that aside from Hunt being there, everything broke PERFECTLY for Chubb this year and he was still only RB8 in ppg for fantasy.  They had possibly the best run blocking O-line in the league.  More importantly this was like the one season Cleveland has every 20 years where they actually stayed competitive in games all year and could stick to the run.

If Cleveland regresses next year, as a huge percentage of these borderline playoff teams do every year, Chubb is in kind of a bad spot.  He relies on the team staying competitive because when they get behind Hunt gets most of the garbage time passing work.  It would be one thing if Chubb were a standout CMC type stud RB1 when things are clicking in Cleveland.  But even in that perfect scenario he was still only RB8 in ppg and is now entering his age 26 season with a career best finish of RB8 in ppg.

Chubb has now played two seasons with Hunt (half of last year, and then this year).  When everything was clicking perfectly in Chubb's favor in Cleveland he was RB8 in ppg.  When Cleveland was playing more like the Cleveland we expect (last year) Chubb was RB23 in PPG in the 8 games Hunt played.

Awesome talent and much like several other great RBs before him it's painful to watch his FF value never match up to his real world value, but the reality is he's basically been a guy who is a mid/low FF RB1 when Cleveland is good and a mid RB2 when Cleveland is bad, and I'm not keen on predicting that Cleveland will be consistently good going forward.  Like I said above it would be one thing if he were playing a like a top 3 overall RB when things are breaking right but even in that scenario Hunt still gets too much work for him finish as a top 5 RB in ppg.

He is RB7 in ADP and that doesn't seem underrated to me for a guy that is entering his age 26 season and has never even finished that high in fantasy scoring.  Realistically despite his talent it is probably a bit much for a guy that, short of a Hunt injury, likely has an UPSIDE of finishing the RB7 range in ppg and a downside of much lower if Cleveland starts having to abandon the run in the 2nd quarter like they've had to in recent years.

Though I totally get the allure in wanting to own Chubb.  He is hella fun to watch run.

Yes, you know the old saying, "it's better to trade a player a year too early, than a year too late.".  Twenty-nine may be a year too late.
