I'm in a pool with Tillman on my team this year. He's one of my most valueable players point wise, finishing 2nd on my team in pts each of the last 2 weeks. Would I keep him? No. If I really wanted him next year, I'd just beat the D rush a round early and grab him a round or 2 early. There's not a chance I could trade him for a RB unless it was for a low level backup with little upside.
Hope this helps!
This certainly helps. I appreciate the reply. Rep to you!
I am surprised a little that D players who are just as valuable to your team (points wise) dont have the same love as O players. I guess they arent as sexy.
