All day man. You have Zach Ertz, I think he's a way better option at tight end this year. Ingram is your RB2, so you definitely need one of these high-upside potential league winners like Mixon. I like this deal a lot for you

Agree with the above. Ertz is better than Graham. Mixon a great lotto ticket

Gilleslee far exceeds Mixon IMO.  He might score 15 TD's in that Patriots offense and he's getting a good amount of carries.

Like eveyone said Ertz is the better TE and with Cinci changing up the play calling might see them give the ball to their best rusher (Mixon). I would trade away Duke over C.thompson since he has a role on the team as a 3rd down and f*k we are losing RB. 

 

 

Edit: Since he want C.Thomoson I would still do it

I am having a hard time deciding this one. That cincy offense is some kind of awful and they have a 3 way rb rotation. While you don't really need graham, Doug Martin will be back soon and I don't see you needing mixon either. I think I would stay and keep Thompson.

Appreciate the contrarian response! Sometimes these threads turn into echo chambers without a lot of reasoning given.

I don't own mixon in any league. And I wouldn't want to. As long as Jeremy hill and Giovanni bernard exist, his value is extremely capped. You're giving up too much for what your getting: someone I wouldn't even want on my bench. I'd rather have a handcuff for one of my RBs or something rather than mixon at this point. The only thing Mixon is good for is trading to people who take the bait.

Graham hasn't been the same since he left Drew. Id probably keep Thompson if possible I think hell be big. Id go with Johnson and Graham for Mixon! Mixons hazy right now but if the Bengals pick it up he should become the number 1. Has the talent! thanks again for the help

i appreciate his contrarian view too.  and understand his logic.   i think maybe he feels you can get better for what you're offering. but if you don't need both why do it?    I feel you're just consolidating your talent when making the trade.  I normally don't like having 2 TEs on my team if I don't need one.   if you're TE is a question mark is the only time I validating having 2. for example I picked up witten  while i have m. bennett because bennett hasn't performed.  i don't have a kicker in my lineup.  I can still drop witten by Monday night and pick up a kicker that night if I haven't won my matchup.   YOU DON'T HAVE THIS PROBLEM.  your TE1 is locked in.  keep upgrading the rest of your squad now.   

 

I say pull the trigger. 

 

 

p.s. can you both weigh in on similar topic?

I like the trade. It's good value and you have wrtz. Nixon may not pan out but it's worth it to find out
