If Drake has another “meh” game against that tough WAS front 7, gonna try to get him. The owner wanted Hurst from me on draft day, so if all goes right Sunday for Hurst I’m gonna offer him Mixon/Hurst for Drake/Engram. Think I have a chance at getting that accepted

 

Let me if this trade works out. I think I would have traded Hurst on draft day.

I was considering trying to sell higher on Drake if he has another game of 12+ touches and 50+ plus yards with a TD. I would be aiming for a WR1 or 2 in return. Perhaps Amari Cooper or a package type deal with multiple players and me targeting Chris Godwin in return.

I'm a bit leery of trying to pull off a twofer sell high with the COVID nonsense. Starting to feel depth is more valuable than studs this year.

This. Others seem to not to get it but it’s not our duty to explain. If I’m being told Ekeler is a sell high and Corey Davis is a buy low, then this thread is bonkers. That’s my perspective. 

You are my target market.

Would u offer conner to get swift?

That’s a really good question, if you own Snell I’d say no. If you just own Connor I’d say yes since if Connor goes down or loses his job you have no insurance.

That’s a tough decision though imo

Hell no. Why would anyone in their right mind want to buy in on a Detroit RB? That situation is going to be a mess from Week 1 to Week 17. 

This. Conner for Swift in redraft is a terrible move.

Take steelers rb situation over lions all day every day

 

sure, on the surface the Stillers lead dog will yield mucho bounty, predicated on that awesome D keeping them in games, and for Teflon Tomlin's penchant for bellcows ... coupled with the Lions absurd failures in said area - no disputing any of that. 

but it's still up in the air in the 'burgh, and, imo, the kid Swift is the most talented of the trio (Conner/Snell/Swift) 🤷‍♂️

Have the Lions committed to a legitimate bell cow running back since Barry Sanders? I hope you're just playing devil's advocate because comparing these two backfield situations is pretty ridiculous. Trading a healthy Conner (at this point) for Swift would be an over the top defensive move. Sometimes you're just better off holding, even if that means going down with the ship. If Conner owners want to make a defensive move it should be trying to trade for Snell before today's game. For example, I just offered Michel for Snell this morning.

Barkley / Mixon wet the bed. Would their owners take 80 cents on the dollar? Would NO ONE trade a ,number whatever round they wee drafted, pick?

I get it. In your mind PLAYER have one bad game PLAYER loses all value. Good luck with that.

 

Bad comparison. I think A LOT of people were skeptical of Ekeler's first round value going into the season in large part because he's relatively new to this level of production and the fact that his QB situation is COMPLETELY different this season. Add his poor start / lack of use in game one and that makes him a  buy low candidate (if you believe) not a sell high candidate. No one is going you first round value for him right now because they shouldn't have to.

Maybe, but it really came across as if you were advocating the trade. Unfortunately talent means nothing without opportunity.

fair enough, but i made it quite clear that the Lions have been "absurd failures" in establishing a sled dog. 

as far as talent, yes - situation trumps it in this gig, agreed 100%

but i feel this kid Swift is about to carve out a very sweet niche. 

would i trade Conner for him atm?  yes. 

agree to disagree, so be it.

If we're just looking at rookie RBs I personally wouldn't  take any less than Taylor or Gibson for Conner right now. I would need more than a "hunch" to justify parting with a 3rd round pick.

that's "sunk cost fallacy" 101 - his propensity for injury, the Snell spectre looming ... he's not long for returning that draft capital.  

i like the kid, he's one of the good guys in this leeg ... but this ain't 2018 any longer.

First of all, comparing tendencies across different coaching regimes is pointless, since it's the coaches that dictate that. Not the franchise. But if you want to do that I think they have tried multiple times. Wasn't Jahvid Best being featured pretty heavily before he started getting knocked out? More recently all signs pointed to them wanting to do that with Kerryon too except he can't stay healthy. 

Edit: Thought of another one after I posted. Pretty sure Kevin Smith was featured before Best came along, before injuries derailed his career as well.

Ya this is my fear. If conner Has another stinker, gets/ looks hurt, or snell has a big role then ill get nothing for him next week.

Overreact much? It's one game and Conner is 25 frickin' years old. There's no reason to think he won't produce if he's healthy.

...like I said, sometimes the best move is not move and you're better off going down with the ship. A healthy Conner has a MUCH higher ceiling in 2020 than a healthy Swift. And I'd argue that the risk isn't that much different between the two.
