If you had a choice in trading Gore or Forte in a Dynasty PPR who would it be?

I would rather have Forte than Gore in a PPR dynasty.

If it's a rebuilding or borderline team, Forte is a nobrainer. Production is only slightly less (<1 PPG last year), and longevity is much more likely.

If it's a loaded team it's more of a coinflip. Gore has accumulated so many nicks it's a risk he's even available for the playoffs when you need him, but if he is, then you could make a case for the extra week-to-week upside.

My team is pretty solid not rebuilding but has a few weak spots that need to be solved to put me over the top. I am deep at RB and need to upgrade WR and QB to get there

Thanks for the help

If you aren't in heavy rebuilding and have good RB depth already, I'd definitely hold Forte and deal Gore. Gore should get you a higher return if you need the help in other positions. What kinda RB depth do you have and who are you looking to deal for?
