You ever find yourself offering more and more and more to certain owners?....

I've been trying to secure some Pats for a championship run.  This owner has Brady/Cooks/Gronk....(Hyde, E.Sanders, and G.Tate the only others who even sniffed 200pts last year - dude was the 1.3 pick).

My squad is:
QB - R.Wilson (Dalton, Kaep, Goff)
RB - LeVeon, Zeke (Gurley, Gillisllee, DMart/Sims, Dixon)
WR - Evans, Cooper (Watkins, Martavis, Snead)
TE - Kelce (Brate)

We start 1QB/1RB/1WR/1TE/3flex...PPR with modest return yards.

Just offered up:
L.Bell
R.Wilson
W.Snead
2018 1st
2018 2nd
2018 3rd

for

Brady
Cooks
Rookie 1.3

Thoughts?  Is this an overpayment at all?  Would you with my squad?  I have some sneaky guys I really like (Gillislee, Dixon, Martavis, Watkins) that I think have a shot at climbing into must-starts by mid-season (I'm hoping at least 1-2 of them anyway).

    Seems balanced for owners who want specific players. I still prefer the Brady side.

    I'm just thinking that this guy needs youth, not Brady....hoping throwing in my future draft class makes him think it's a good idea.  So a fairly even deal, all things considered?

    Brady is 40 by Week 1....clearly I'll have to start actively looking for a future QB...

    I'd rather have leveon then everything you're getting in return. Don't know why you're throwing in picks

    See the thread title....there are certain owners that are hard to trade with, and for some reason I just keep on offering more and more and more. This is the culmination of that exact situation. There is also the situation that Bell has already had a three-game suspension, so there is a little risk right there. As long as I'm not losing big time, I'd be willing to take a chance.Although it sounds like you think I'm losing big time. LOL

    You are built to win now Joe. I don't think that I would risk another championship run this year and future runs by moving Bell.

    I don't think Brady/Gronk gives enough extra over Wilson/Kelce to give up the youth and risk having to depend on any of your RBs after Zeke. Gurley is still in LA, 'nough said. Gillislee is stuck with the Hoodie, better off than Gurley, but still. The rest... meh

    ^This for sure^  To answer the question from the title...... not a freaking chance...  ;)

    Honestly, overpaying just because of the other owner can seriously set you back if the what you get in return backfires.  Just saying......

    It's not Gronk. It's Cooks. So it amounts to Wilson/Bell vs. Brady/Cooks.... But also picking up Mixon/McCaffery/Davis at 1.3. Still too much?

    I did the same last year... Kept offering more and more for Zeke. I got him eventually for Freeman/Coleman/T. Pryor/J. Graham/L. Murray for Zeke/Brate/Rookie 2nd.

    I think that's a really generous offer and if I was the Brady owner I'd take it. I mean, Brady is getting old, he's not THAT much better than the next 5 qbs, is he? Rodgers, Ryan, Brees, and Luck all averaged more per game than Brady last year. Even Rodgers at 439 total points last year only averaged 7 points a week more than the 12th-18th ranked QBs. Personally, I think you're offering too much and have a good shot to take a run with Wilson and crew. I'd keep what you have, Joe.

    Good points, Wick.

    I'm seriously thinking of pulling the offer. Not sure why I'm selling my shares of Bell, but seems I am.
  • ffbfan06 Posts: 60
    I would pull the offer. Bell value alone is worth more.
  • GlassJoe Posts: 158
    Yeah, I pulled it....thanks.

    Yeah exactly. Bell is a premier talent worth all of that other side. I'm not against sellin him but it would take a top rb1, a wr2 I like, and a first at least. And that's JUST for bell.
