DMC & Joe Flacco for Tom Brady and Steven Jackson. WHIR

Postby jp2010 » Mon Oct 15, 2012 10:36 pm

What do you guys think. I really need a better qb and Tom Brady is definitely an improvement. I hate to lose DMC especially since Steven Jackson will probably be losing most of his carries to Daryl Richardson.

My Team is
Qb Matthew Stafford, Joe Flacco
RB DMC, MJD, Shonn Green, Mikel Leshoure, Pierre Thomas, Ben Tate
WR Julio Jones, Percy Harvin, Marques Colston, Anquan Boldin
TE Jermichael Finley
D/ST Texans
K Shayne Graham

The league is a standard scoring 10 team ESPN league.

I say do this. Brady is a freak and will only get better as the season goes on. Flacco and Stafford are inconsistent and shaky at best, and McFadden has been disappointing. Trade.

Help with mine?

That zone blocking scheme in Oakland needs to be scrapped, it isn't working at all. They need to go back to the power blocking they used the last couple years. Since you don't get points for receptions it also puts a big dent in DMC's value.

He has one thing going for him in that the schedule gets A LOT easier than the first few weeks. His 3 awful performances running the ball came against the 4th, 5th, and 9th best run defenses (according to his MFL page). The rest of his schedule he only faces 1 team ranked better than 20th until week 17.

Damn, I think I just made a case for keeping him lol.

Tom Brady is a freak, but you take away the Buffalo game and has he really been that much better than Stafford (look at the numbers)? Take into account Stafford missed a good chunk of the Titans game where Shaun Hill put up 178 yards and a score, his numbers would look much better if he had those. You gotta think Stafford turns it around at some point, Megatron only 1 TD on the season??

Steven Jackson is trending towards RB3/4 territory at this point...DMC is looking like a buy low to me. I think I'd rather play the matchups at QB than at RB...

See if you can counter with Leshoure or sell high on Shonn Greene after his 3 TD day yesterday. Idk if it will work but worth a try.

I wouldn't do it. I think DMC will improve against worse defenses and I think that the injuries to the Ravens' defense will force Flacco to throw/score more.
