Dynasty Deal with lots of young talent - Stanton, Bruce, Wood++


Dynasty Deal with lots of young talent - Stanton, Bruce, Wood, Jones, Kemp

Thought this trade might generate some good dialogue on some view on some of the involved players most of which are still  very young (< 25) or still prospects. I don't normally tee up fantasy trades on this site unless however I feel that they involve young players that I know many here have strong views on.  Any views on the deal or players involved are appreciated.

Context:  16 team Mixed 5x5 Dynasty League, no salaries.  Both teams are playoff caliber teams.  Ignore any positional needs as it is not a real factor for either team.

Team A (mine) Gives up:
Adrian GonzalezJay Bruce, Michael Stanton

Team B Gives up:

Matt Kemp, Adam JonesBrandon Wood (or a possible alternate prospect).

 

Team A is giving up a ton of talent, that may possibly combine for ~ 120 HRs annually in a few years.  That said, odds are that both of Stanton and Bruce don't reach their MLB "power ceilings" of ~ 40 HRs annually as both have some degree of  concerns relative to high K rates/low contact rates.  Adrian Gonzalez is as steady as it gets and no need for a lot of analysis here as MLB production rates are clearly established.

Team A is getting arguably the best (again 5x5 fantasy) asset in the deal in Matt Kemp.  He hits the ball so hard that a sub 80% contact rate should allow him to continue to be a ~ 300 hitter and he could be a real 30/30 threat with 300-100 (avg/rbi) totals as well, obviously elite fantasy numbers.   Funny Adam Jones is a player that I'd take over either Bruce or Stanton for real MLB purposes.  Not so sure for fantasy purposes.  Jones has always shown nice growth as he adjusts to higher levels of competition and I can see him settling in to a 280-25-100 line production during his peak seasons.    Wood is the throw in that I would like in the deal.  His stock has dropped a lot but once/if he leaves the Angels I do think that he could develop into a decent power source (25-80) and also stay at SS (a JJ Hardy type of player, hopefully sans 2009).

Anyway, I appreciate any input on this trade and the young players involved.
