I know the draft this year is short on impact fantasy players, but with your multiple early picks...pick young/ rookies and hope to hit on a couple of them....If last year in the 6th round and you had multiple picks and grabbed, Morris and D martin...your team would be in much better shape this year....no not saying you will hit 100% but got to take some chances.....you will be throwing away 2-3 years but you could build a great young team.
No one takes over a good team because people don't back out of leagues when they have a good team, they drop out when they know its going to be hard to win and they are starting at a disadvantage.
I would say Marshall has AT LEAST another 2-3 good years in him and his team could easily be relevant before then. I see your point but you openly admit that this year isnt a great one so that first round rookie pick doesnt mean much for him. For a 16 team league he doesnt have a horrible team, he just lacks a RB to be honest. If he could pull a trade like Marshall and Ballard for Cobb and a top 15 RB then i could get on board with this. But this trade is a step down at WR (which is his only really strength right now) in hopes to draft a rookie RB (of which there aren't many) that actually pans out and carries his team in 3 years. I highly doubt he inherited this team to drop 3 years of league dues in the hopes that a few rookies will pan out and make him a contender.
