    Pitta for Joique?

    Any chance Dennis Pitta could get me Joique Bell in a trade in a 1/4 point PPR league?

    I could use RB depth, and Bell's owner currently has Greg Olsen as his TE. I feel like I could sell him on Pitta's "breakout season" hype, and talk him into parting with some of his depth.

    FYI - I own Jimmy Graham. So, Pitta wouldn't really be missed, and Travis Kelce, who I'm hearing a lot about, could be snatched up off waivers to be my new back-up if needed.

    • I wouldn't give you any RB for a TE outside of Graham or Thomas as they are all pretty much the same. Total #$%$ shoot position. That's why Graham has way more value than he should. If you could get Bell or Vereen, I would take it for sure.

    • Another guy in my league just let it be known that he really wants a solid tight end to back up Gronk in case he ends up getting hurt or busts this year.

      The only RB on his team who I like is Vereen, and even that is sketchy because of the crowded backfield in New England.

      That said, if I could get Vereen for Pitta, should I do that deal?

    • Thanks for the feedback, Joe.

      Anyone else care to chime in?

      • Not yet. Joique isn't going to give you much, assuming he's not a starting RB on your team. I do think PItta will have a good year. When healthy, he was a favorite target of Flacco, and that was when Anquan was still with Ravens too. In Kubiak's system, Pitta will thrive. Keep him, once he starts putting up good numbers, someone will want him and you'll be able to get a better return than Joique Bell.

    • You could give it a shot but if I had Olson I wouldn't give up bell for pitta... pitta will probably have a better year then Olson but not by too much I don't think... even if panthers struggle some on O. But Bell adds good depth for any back field to give up on a TE that is like the 12 or 13th best ranked TE.
