Hillis, VDavis, & Holmes for my Gore, Bowe, & Gronk (WHIR)

Postby BuddyBoriatli » Thu Oct 06, 2011 3:54 pm

So, I'm all about the even trades, but I was hoping to get some upside on this one. Someone in my league offered me S Holmes, V Davis, and P Hillis for my D Bowe, F Gore, and R Gronk.

My team: (nonPPR, pts for QB completions, 1pp 10 return yds)

QB: Drew Brees
WR: Wes Welker
WR: D-Jax
WR: Steve Smith
RB: Chris Johnson
RB: S-Jax
TE: RGronk
K: S Janikowski
DEF: NYJ

BN: Dwayne Bowe
BN: Frank Gore
BN: Cam Newton
BN: Denarius Moore
BN: Ben Tate
BN: Jordy Nelson

So, what do you think? It's a pretty close trade, but I dunno how I feel about Santonio Holmes having to rely on Sanchez. I also don't think Hillis is going to keep up his numbers as time goes on. But I'm worried Gronk is about to lose a lot of his looks with Hernandez coming back. Also, Gore hasn't done a whole lot for numbers this year.

Thank you in advance for ANY advice you can offer. Leave a link and I'll help you!

I would stick with your guys. I feel like Gore and Hillis are about equal (and both will underachieve this year unfortunately). I agree with you fear of Holmes having to rely on the worst rated QB in the league. Bowe is in better (by just a bit) postiion with at least Cassell throwing to him. But i think Gronk is clearly the better TE here. So i guess my assessment is that you own the better player in each position.

NO WAY!.......I like Gore over Hills, Gronk over Davis and Bowe over Holmes. You would be losing at ever position.

Sorry it took me so long to reply but I agree with the rest of them and I'd decline the trade. Your players are better and have more upside I think than the ones that are being offered to you in that deal.
