I'm in a deep (20 teams, 25 keepers, 30+2 roster slots) head to head dynasty league. Scoring is the standard 5x5 plus holds and OPS.
I was offered the following trade:
Now, Cruz is off to a pretty hot start, but I noticed from owning him last year, he is very apt to follow up a hot streak with a cold one. So his value at this point could be its highest of the season. I'm generally seen in the upper tier of teams in the league (in 2 separate user created power rankings I was 2nd), so I am in win now mode. So, the question becomes, does this trade help me to that end? I am a fan of both Jones and Rzep, but neither are truly proven performers at this point. So, is this enough for Cruz?
