  1. This is gold and perfect timing having an unusual start at 0-5 largely due to giving up 127 PPG vs 108 PPG league average.

    As you no RW Nation has no quit in it, so had to work trades this week, completing the following deal in a std with 5 point bonus for 100 yard receiving or rushing.

    Give -> Melvin Gordon and Kenny Golladay (Bye)
    Receive -> Mike Evans (off of bye) and Keenan Allen

    Playing the individual I gave Kenny on bye so weakening his team for our matchup while rounding out the squad with starters Evans, Keenan, DJ, CMC, and A-Rob.

    1. You got robbed.

      1. Time will tell Frank

        1. Post By Byron Lambert

          I don’t hate this trade. If you get a win this wk, it will all be worth it. At least you got two study players in return. Hopefully DJ begins to surge for you.

          1. Thanks Byron – keep up the good work.

  2. Miller time seems to be back as he went full today. He is on my WW. Should I drop Chester Rodgers for him at this point.

    1. Do it. Rodgers is trash man material.

      1. Post By Byron Lambert

        Love you Frank Grimes

  3. Someone dropped Chris Thompson… he’s available as well as Kirk (wr), Foreman and Ron Jones are available in Season Long.. can you rank these guys from top to bottom?

    1. I’d pick up CT

  4. Great TradeCast as always Byron!

    full point ppr whats a fair deal to offer for fournette? Thanks

    1. Meh

      1. Conner+Ridley prob would be a starting trade offer.

    2. Post By Byron Lambert

      I’d start w/ Mike Davis and Ridley

  6. I have a trade offer, need y’alls advice,

    10 team PPR start a QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX, K, D/ST


    LA Rams D/ST
    Juju Smith Schuster


    Jacksonville D/ST
    Devin Funchess
    Amari Cooper

    1. I am also 4-1 and in sole possession of first place, thanks to yalls help

    2. No.

    3. JuJu >>> Amari+Funchess

      No go on trade

      1. Post By Byron Lambert


    4. Thank you

      1. Would you do a LA Rams for Jacksonville?

        He is also offering Alshon for Juju, but that was before the thursday night game though

  7. PPR trade:

    Getting: Hill or Golladay (pick one)
    Giving: Cooper and Sanders

    1. Probably Golladay

  8. .5 PPR. Just got an offer.

    Recieve: Lynch, Blount, Dalvin Cook, Kenny Stills

    Trade: James Conner, Emmanuel Sanders.

    My RBs: Carson, Conner, Fournette, Kerryon and Chubb

    WR: Mike Thomas, Josh Gordon, Sanders, Fuller, Anthony Miller and Callaway.

    1. Forgot to add sitting at 4-1. Have Clay at TE so i’m interested in looking for one of those
      Brees and Rivers at QB. Anyone offers youd make for a top te?

    2. Post By Byron Lambert

      Leaves you a tiny bit thin at WR2/3 – but I think you have to do this deal- that’s a big offer. You will have plenty of ammo to try to upgrade your TE through other trades. Sounds like you have a backup QB you can trade if necessary too. Nice work!

  9. Post By

    Insane Clowney Posse, 2-3. Been trying to trade a RB for a WR, but short of a “TY Hilton for Sony Michel” offer the other owners are unwilling to deal.

    In the meantime, I struggle with who to start (standard league, need 2, already starting Gordon at RB1): Barkley tonight vs PHI, Conner vs CIN, Mixon vs PIT, Michel vs KC.

    Normally say “start your studs” but Mixon and even Michel are almost at that stage too and they have the better matchups. So any any advice would be much appreciated!

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Tell that Hilton owner to pound sand

      OMG- what a crazy group of RBs!!! Think I’d go Mixon.

      1. Post By

        Thanks Byron, drafted RB with 1st three picks (Barkley, Gordon, Mixon) and drafted Michel 12.2. Grabbed Conner and Lindsay (oh yea, also have Lindsay) off waivers. Wish owners weren’t so resistant to reasonable trade offers, perhaps now that Mixon and Michel are RB1s.

        Along with Gordon and Mixon, need one more to start. Barkley?

        1. Tough call look at matchup tool and rankings .Incredibly tough to bench SB- but lord does Sony Michel look good heading into this wk. Don’t think you can go too wrong.

  10. Post By

    First year pro member here, LOVE my team here but am sitting at 1-4. James Connor owner is getting nervous so I offered him Doug Baldwin and Agholor for him. He rebutted with James Connor for Golladay straight up. What do you guys think? I know we love Golladay but I think Connor still has tons of value. My other backs are Zeke, Mixon, Yeldon, Kerryon and AP. Receivers are Davante, Keenan, baldwin, agholor, Golladay and cole. Will obviously be heavy RB if I make this move but a lot of owners are looking for a back and I feel like I could throw in one or two for another elite receiver. Thoughts? Thanks in advance!!

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      If you can make another trade we like it in terms of equity. We agree on Conner. Don’t necessarily love what this does to the balance of your roster in terms of just this one trade. Golladay on a bye for Conner isn’t a total rip off either, but is solid. KG is your WR3 and is a nice piece on your current roster.

      Can you send AP or Kerryon and Baldwin or Agholor?

    2. Post By Byron Lambert

      That’s a nasty squad BTW. Keep grinding, you’ll get yours.

  11. was offered Keenan Allen for Reed and Sanders…accept or counter to add someone else?

    I have Ebron and Im adding to my WRs since I already have OBJ and TY

    1. im countering to try and get Jordan Howard… make the trade even

      1. also…so Allen and Howard

        1. Post By Byron Lambert

          God if you pull that caper off, we love it! Don’t even completely hate Sanders + Reed for Allen straight up. But, man if you can scoop Howard too wow. Even if you have to throw a 3rd sell high guy that we don’t care about to put it over for Allen and Howard go for it

          1. Added a 3rd piece but they wouldn’t take it…Still managed to get Allen tho

  12. Any chance of Robby Anderson returning to what he was last year? Or dump him for Anthony Miller?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Very close call. If 6 TD Trubisky is for real, MillerTime is a nice speculation. Anderson obv enticing right now. Could be a carousel for both. I’d prob hold Anderson for a week.

  13. 10 team 1pt ppr

    I have Mahomes and Brees, thinking of offering Brees and JuJu for AB. Thoughts?

    My other WR’s are D. Adams, E. Sanders and Fuller.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      I would do that.

  14. 10 team Standard

    Drop Breida for Nyheim Hines ?

  15. 10 team Standard Ll

    Should I Drop Breida for Nyheim Hines ?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert


  16. Pretty deep Half Point PPR league. I’m pretty stacked at WR but due to injuries and a bye week I’m really hurting at RB this week. I need 2 of these RB’s:


    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Hines + one of the Eagles RBs

      1. Which one do you think? I was leaning Smallwood

  17. Trade my Corey Clement for Ronald Jones? Non-PPR. Thanks RW!!!

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Very close call. Don’t think so. If it’s just a bench / stash / luxury trade and you want to shoot for moon w/RoJo upside- it’s fine. Your call here Doc. I can tell you, it’s equitable one way or the other.

      1. Thank You Byron! Keep up the AMAZING work with the Tradecast. Its a mandatory listen.

  18. Post By

    Someone dropped houston Def this week. Worth spending like 6-7% on it or just ride with baltimore def?

    Also, listening to trade cast now. Always great

    1. 6-7 is a little rich, but I’d def put a bid in and go for them

  19. What is y’all’s take on the Conner/LeVeon situation? I have a potential trade on the table to receive Conner and Alex Smith for Andrew Luck. It’s a 2 QB, all flex spots, PPR league and I already have Brady and Goff.

    I’m a tad nervous to pull the trigger if LeVeon comes back to the Steelers and resumes his normal role, but if they trade him it’s an absolute no-brainer to me. Thoughts?

    1. He’ll stay in the mix, but not to the extent we’d like to see. Seems like minimal risk considering you have Goff and Brady though

  20. Desperate must-win scenario. Manny Sanders on my bench.

    Trade Manny for James Conner straight up? Such a tough call.

    1. I can live with that in a must win

  21. My: N. Hines and E.Ebron for T. Yeldon and A.Hooper

    I have Fournette.

    1. I would.

  22. 12 team PPR league (3-2):
    2 RB, 2 WR, 1 FLEX

    WRs: AB, K. Allen, Gordon, Cobb, Callaway
    RBs: Freeman, Collins, Kerryon, Crowell, Buck Allen

    3-2 but lowest total of points scored and I just realized how screwed I might be at RB! Been trying to sell high on Crowell and Buck but having no luck. Targeting guys mentioned in the TRADECAST but wanna know who else you think is tradeable if push to comes to shove since I know people are gonna want AB and Allen if I go after elite guys. I could try throwing offers out there of Gordon and Kerryon? Been looking at teams with guys like Howard, Hunt, Michel, Ingram, DJ, Connor/Bell …

    I am only in talks with one team who has Mixon, Barkley, Miller, Chubb, and Gore and Foreman and Shepard, C. Rogers, Hilton, Crowell, Allison… He says he ain’t moving Mixon unless I WOW with him an offer, and so far I’ve tried offering him Gordon and Kerryon for Mixon. Also for reference this is the same time I traded Hilton to for Freeman back in like week 2… Pretty sure he won’t want Freeman back nor Collins since he owns the same RB core in another we play in! I know he’d want Allen so offer Keenan Allen with who for Mixon?

    1. Quick update: I think he’s willing to send me Mixon and Hilton if I give him Keenan Allen, Collins and Buck … what do you think?

      Otherwise what kinda of offer should I make to the owner of Connor/Bell and he has McCoy… he said make me an offer I can refuse!
      His team looks like this:

      WRs: Cooks, Watkins, Coutee, Crabtree
      RBs: Connor, Hyde, McCoy, Murray, Bell

      1. Take Mixon

  23. Post By

    Should I sit Diggs with the fear of him facing PP and play Boyd over him?? PPR League, or I could play E. Sanders over either. But I am leaning Boyd

    1. Manny and Diggs over Boyd

  24. Play 3WR 2RB and Flex PPR 4-1
    RB: MGordon, Kamara, Mixon, JConnor, CThompson. Foreman
    WR: THill, JSMith-Schuster, C Ridley, MJones,Jr., Kirk

    putting together some potential trade packages:
    Should I initiate a trade to LevBell owner My JConner for his KCole or JoshGordon?
    package my CRidley and JConnor to an 0-5 team needing help this week for 1 of their WR: Julio. ESanders. AJeffrey. THilton or TBoyd? What would be fair
    trade my CRidley for an injured Cobb?
    trade my CRidley and JConnor for Golladay or Landry

  25. 10 team .5 PPR. Should I accept either of the following trade options?

    Receive: Golden Tate, James Connor
    Give: Joe Mixon, Doug Baldwin
    Receive: Golden Tate
    Give: Joe Mixon

    Current WR’s: Baldwin, Michael Thomas, Enunwa, Coutee
    Current RB’s: Elliott, Mixon, Carson, Chubb, A. Collins, J. Allen

    1. Don’t trade Mixon

  26. TE question:

    Standard league, would you rather have Njoku or Greg Olsen rest of the season. My “starting” TE is Evan Engram when healthy.


    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Prob Njoku

  27. Post By

    Standard scoring with 3 point bonus for 300 passing, 5 points for 400 Me giving up Russell Wilson, getting famous Jameis.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert


  28. 14 Team standard league. Team name Kerryon My Wayward Son. 1-4 since I’ve given up the most points in the league. I’ve been offered Amari Cooper and Fournette for A.J. Green and Nick Chubb. I’m tempted but don’t want to ride the Cooper rollercoaster.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Solid offer, don’t think you can do it you need a win this wk. I’d stick w/ AJG, we like him this wk

      1. Thanks as always Byron. Really appreciate it.

  29. Post By

    1/2 pt ppr
    give Kamara and Chubb
    get Lev Bell and Connor

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Prob do it

      1. Post By

        If it matters my other backs are Devonta Freeman, Dion Lewis, Powell? I’m tied for first and play the other first place team this week with Kamara/Tate on bye.

  30. Post By "Dirty"(Shaunanigans1980)

    14 team standard give k galloway get d cook

    1. Post By "Dirty"(Shaunanigans1980)

      2 wr 2 rb and flex and my othe wr are brown sanders watkins and calloway rb are gurly and mixon

    2. Post By "Dirty"(Shaunanigans1980)

      Fournette could be on the table for a similar offer

      1. i’d do it for cook

  31. Standard league. My Tevin Coleman and Mark Ingram for his Leonard Fournette and TJ Yeldon (he is a freeman owner). I’m 0-5 though so this week is must win

    1. i’d make sure freeman is playing this week first. i don’t know that i like yeldon more than freeman-less coleman against the bucs.

      1. Appreciate it

  32. 12 PPR
    Start Gordon or a. Robinson ?

  33. Post By

    12 team ppr, .25 point per carry. I’m 4-1, looking to make a run for the title.

    Here is my team:
    QB: Mahomes, Stafford
    RB: Kamara (kept from last year)
    RB: Elliot (traded 2019 1st for him)
    WR: Odell Beckham (kept)
    WR: Keenan Allen (kept)
    WR: Jarvis Landry
    TE: Jordan Reed
    Flex: Royce Freeman, Wendell Smallwood, Alfred Morris, Antonio Callaway

    These are the players on the block and what their owners are asking for them:
    Stefon Diggs (2019 2nd)
    Christian McCaffrey (2019 2nd)
    Travis Kelce (2019 2nd)

    Are these reasonable prices to pay for these players or should I be targeting lower tier players?

    1. Post By

      It might be helpful to know that I can keep Beckham in the 4th next year, Kamara in the 10th, and Mahomes in the 15th. Everyone else either cannot be kept or should not be kept.

    2. Post By

      I also have James Conner, who I could keep in the 15th round next year if he gets the Steelers job. My league is pretty sharp though and no one is willing to deal for him yet. He’s in a “hold” pattern for me right now.

  34. Post By

    I was offered Antonio brown and Jordan Howard for AJ green and Sony Michel and drake. What you think??
    I will be getting brown and Howard.

    1. Post By

      It’s a 1/2 point PPR League

  35. Post By

    I’m in a 10 team .5ppr I have Dalton as only QB would u pick up Winston off waivers and drop Dalton ?

  36. Post By "Dirty"(Shaunanigans1980)

    Standard 14 team give sanders and watkins get cook? Thaughts. Thanks again for the job you do!

  37. Post By

    In a 12 team PPR. 100Pt lead over 2nd place. Been offered trade. I get David Johnson. He gets J Howard and Conner. Would leave me with Kamera, D Johnson, T Hill, Juju and M. Thomas as my starters. Considering because of the concern of Bell coming back. But if Bell ends up in Philly, then I lose stud in Conner

  38. You shopping E. Sanders for J. Howard in PPR?

    WRs: Green, Evans, TY, Sanders, Callaway
    RBs: D Johnson, Hyde, Dion Lewis, Keryon, Jamaal Williams.


  39. Great pod as always Byron! One thing I’d love to see on the tradecast is like some weekly examples of what would be good and bad offers for these buy low and sell high players.

  40. And to elaborate more on the good/bad thing….like what would be a good offer then maybe many would think bad and vice versa.

  41. Post By

    12 team standard, I would get Alvin Kamara and give up Ezekiel Elliott?
