Need trade help QUICK! WHIR. Thank you.

im in a 10 team h2h non-keeper league ive been offered Josh Johnson and David Freese for Jedd Gyorko and CJ Wilson.

I would be getting Johnson and Freese

Freese and Johnsons injury history worries me and id hate to let Gyorko go and him breakout and Freese get injured for an extended period of time like past seasons. But as of right now Middlebrooks is my CI and the small sample size worries me a bit, so if i accept i could plug in Freese at CI if Middlebrooks has a sophomore slump.

Also, both Johnson and Wilson did not have great years last year, and while i think they will both rebound, Johnson is more of a concern to me.

I think that if Freese plays all year he will be better than Gyorko but thats a big IF, and if Johnson plays to his potential and bounces back i think he would be a great addition to my team. So should i accept or pass on this trade? any help is appreciated. Thank you.

My team is :

C- Mike Napoli
1B- Eric Hosmer
2B- Howie Kendrick
3B- Miguel Cabrera
SS- Starlin Castro
CI- Will Middlebrooks
MI- Andrelton Simmons

OF- Shin-soo Choo
OF- Alex Gordon
OF- Jason Heyward

I think you are being offered more talent, but I don't think it fits the makeup of your team well. I'd be more concerned with your 2B/MI positions than your 3B/CI position. Kendrick and Simmons may both be worse fantasy players than Gyorko this year. I like Johnson much more than Wilson this year. Especially now that he's on a team that is bound to win some games, but I'm not sure you can afford to give up Gyorko.

I'd stand pat here. Johnson had some disturbing signs last season, and the move the the AL East isn't going to help him. And that is on top of his injury woes. I don't see JJ putting up better numbers than CJ this year. IMO stick with the consistency of Wilson and hope for the upside.

Help with mine?

Decent deal but it doesn't appear to make your team stronger. I lay off on this deal!

Yeah it's not a bad deal but I dont think it really helps your team. Plus I am really worried about Josh Johnson having to pitch in the AL East this year.

I also really like the upside of Gyorko, I would def hold on to him for now.
