Inspired by Greg Salamone
Trade #1: Keegan and Don Eaves
Keegan Gives: Stefon Diggs
Don Gives: DK Metcalf, 2023 Second Round Pick
Why: Keegan is in a tweener phase, he can complete but ultimately needs a few big breaks to capture his second championship. DK’s value has fallen since Russ moved on but he is clearly still a talented player. Don can acquire Diggs and immediately be positioned for back to back chips.
Trade #2: Jason and Ryan
Jason Gives: Zeke Elliott
Ryan Gives: Dameon Pierce, 2024 Second Round Pick
Why: Zeke is aging and it is very evident in his play, Jason should dump him while he has value. Pierce is a high upside dynasty target plus Jason would stockpile picks in the 2024 draft as he is already sitting pretty for 2023.
Trade #3: GT and Donald
GT Gives: Kenneth Walker, 2023 3rd Round Pick
Donald Gives: Aaron Jones
Why: Donald will not be competing any time soon while GT absolutely can compete, even this year with moves. I actually like GT’s WRs this year plus he has an elite TE so if he adds a strong RB he can be a Darkhorse for the chip this year while still rebuilding.
Trade #4: Jason and Josh
Jason Gives: Keenan Allen
Josh Gives: George Pickens, Noah Fant
Why: One year rebuild! Josh has a spot for a WR on his squad that can produce this year and hopefully for the short term. Jason would add young talent on a team that has proven success with WRs and also make a long-term investment at TE that he desperately needs. Josh would likely deny this trade because “Fant is the future” and Jason would deny it because “Keenan is elite”.
Trade #5: Jordan and GT
Jordan Gives: Christian McCaffery
GT Gives: Kenneth Walker, 2023 First Round Pick
Why: Jordan, ya gotta move on big dawg, get value while you can. GT, same shit I said before. Get a legit #1 and he can compete.
Trade #6: Frank and Jason
Frank Gives: Mike Evans
Jason Gives: Later of 2 2023 Firsts, 2023 Third
Why: Mike Evans will be an elite reliable option for the next 3 seasons, him paired with Zeke, Saquon, Keenan could put Jason right back in contention. Jason also has a lot of picks piled up so he can afford to lose one for a WR with Top 5 upside and one of the highest floors in the league.
Trade #7: Steve and Josh
Steve Gives: Matthew Stafford, Michael Gallup
Josh Gives: Christian Kirk
Why: Josh gets his short term guy at QB to give shit ass Lance time to develop. Steve gives up no starters and gets a Flex level WR that can be extremely helpful when Mike Williams is eventually terrible.
