  1. The Eric Ebron current ADP does seem a bit bizarre. I have an opportunity to take advantage of this - Have been offered Ebron + 1.10 for Tyler Eifert.

    The safety of sticking with Eifert is obvious - But I really don't think it's that unlikely Ebron breaks out next year and outperforms him. In addition to this, Eifert seems a little more of an injury risk - plus is almost 3 years older.

    I'm considering going back & countering with one of the below:

    • Ebron + 1.07
    • Ebron + 2017 1st
    • Ebron + Duke Johnson

    Would appreciate some advice on whether you think this is a deal worth doing?

  2. I would definitely do any of those trades. Eifert only gained 615 yards last year and seems like a clear sell high (which doesn't mean he couldn't emerge as a long term Top 3 TE).

    While this is not a particularly exciting year to hold a 1st round pick, there are plenty of guys who could end up being good players. There's a pretty good chance either Boyd or Carroo falls to 1.10 and those might be the two best guys in the draft.

    My preference would be to get in position for Coleman, so if there's a series of trades to make to net Ebron and Coleman, that would probably be the best case scenario.

  3. Eifert is kind of weird because while he's definitely a sell from a usage standpoint - he was on a 91 target pace last year - he's also likely to see an uptick in usage this year. But I agree with Shawn that it's a great time to sell him on him.

  4. Yeah I will try and get one of those done. I already have 1.08 and 1.11 so may be in reasonable shape for Boyd/Carroo regardless.

    Another option - Eifert + my 2.05 for Randall Cobb. Is that better?

  5. I prefer one of the trades with a 2-for-1 in your favor. The 2.05 should be a decent pick for building RB depth.
