Suddenly Flush with RBs - Which One to Deal?

All of a sudden I find myself with what feels like a deep stable of solid RBs. Currently on the roster:

- T. Etienne
- T. Pollard
- J. Taylor
- J. Gibbs
- B. Hall
- D. Achane (IR)

I'd like to try to move one of these for a WR2. I'm light on WRs, with D. Adams and C. Godwin as the starters and less than desirable backups after that.

Which one of these RBs would you fade the rest of the year and look to deal? I was thinking I'd wait and see if Gibbs puts up another solid week next week and then try to sell high before Montgomery comes back but interested in other opinions.

I mean trade the right one and you can get a WR1.. I know this is an unpopular take but I think Etienne is playing slightly above how good he is.. seems to most of his points of touchdowns and idk if that’s sustainable.

Under no circumstances would I trade breece hall.

If you were to trade Taylor I’d eat a week or two until his value goes up more unless you need wins now. Same for pollard

I’d probably see if someone will bite on achanes potential just because he’s kind of an unknown. Etienne would give you a high level player in return. Gibbs would be a good sell high candidate.

Flip 2 separate rbs for 2 WR1s. If you need to throw in wrs to get the job done do it.

Go after the Hills, Kupps etc.

One of the other guys in my league has T. Hill, K. Allen, and Nakua. Could propose an Etienne for K. Allen?

Other potential trade partner has Kupp, McLaurin, and DJ Moore and is hurting for RBs.

Gibbs or Pollard, but i think you should get a high end WR2 for Pollard

Bumping this back up to revisit after this week. Would I be crazy to offer Gibbs for K. Allen? I don’t love the uncertainty around Gibbs usage once Montgomery comes back and feel like Allen’s usage rate will only go up with Williams hurt.

It doesn’t feel like Pollard would be enough to get Allen after a couple of poor weeks and I think I’d like to hang on to ETN.

Alternatively, I’m wondering if I might be able to buy low on Kupp and get him by offering Pollard.

You could always offer Pollard for Allen and see if they accept. I personally think Gibbs is showing why he deserves more touches and while Montgomery probably steals some goal line work that's what Reynolds is already doing now. Etienne, Gibbs, and Hall with Achane as a golden ticket feels like a solid way to ride out the season if you can pull it off.
