Rivers for Big Ben WHIR!

Postby Mickel208 » Tue Nov 15, 2011 7:59 pm

Should I trade Rivers for Ben?

Rivers has Buffalo, Baltimore, and @Lions for a playoff schedule

Ben has Browns, @49'ers, and Rams for playoff schedule
Winning isn't everything, it's the ONLY thing!!!

Yes. I think this broken thumb will be a non factor. Steelers are a pass first team with alot of weapons.

I'd do it too....Great matchups and I don't think his thumb is going to be an issue. Hope this helps...

If you can, take a look at my post and give me advice too...Thanks!

I think Id stay with Rivers actually. He is such a good QB in the month of December historically.

Matchups, it looks like Ben would be better, but IMO it's a wash. I think they have about the same potential. Rivers can be solid too, and they will be trying to get into the playoffs.

I made the opposite trade a couple of weeks ago in a keeper league to avoid Ben's bye week as the league is tight, I was already invested in the Pitt offense with Wallace and Brown at wideout and think Rivers probably has better long term potential. That being said, if just for this year, it isn't an unreasonable trade if you can withstand the bye this week.
