    Verlander/Altuve for A. Gordon/Kinsler.

    Roto dynasty league trade proposed to me. I was offered Gordon/Kinsler for Verlander/Altuve. I need R, HR, RBI. My staff without Verlander would be Minor, Wheeler, J. Weaver, Leake, Locke, Wood, Hefner, Batista. Is that enough for Verlander? I know Altuve has been struggling. Can I give up Verlander with depth I have? Thanks.

    • In most Roto formats I wouldn't give up Verlander without getting another SP in return. This will hurt you in Wins and Ks and chances are with your staff, you are at least competitive in those cats. I also don't think Gordon and Kinsler are the best guys to target for HR/RBI. Kinsler's production could go down a little if Cruz gets suspended. I would post the guy's team so we can help you come up with a counter offer

      • May try and do that. It is a deep league though, so would be a lot of names. I agree with you on those guys not being perfect fits for what I was looking for. I just completed a trade for Jhonny Peralta and Todd Frazier for Perkins. I am done chasing Saves. So combining both deals would be Peralta, Frazier, Kinsler, Gordon for Perkins, Verlander, Altuve.
