Rodgers for Demaryius and Gates

Postby jeff.miller21 » Tue Oct 15, 2013 8:28 pm

I was just offered in my 10 man standard league Aaron Rodgers for my Demaryius Thomas and Antonio Gates

My team currently looks like
QB-Tony Romo
RB-Ray Rice, Reggie Bush
WR- Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas
TE- Antonio Gates/Jordan Cameron/Julius Thomas
FLEX-TE
B-Steve Smith, Chris Johnson, Ryan Mathews, TE, Steve Johnson

I am getting the best player in the deal Rodgers, which is definitely an upgrade over Tony Romo. But is this upgrade worth the downgrade I would have with having to start Steve Smith in my new WR spot instead of Demaryius?

Not worth it. Romo is perfectly suitable. Rodgers has Jones and Cobb out too. Could play in. ;-D

Yeah I wouldn't do this trade either. It makes no sense for you to do it. Romo is very capable at performing top 10 (or even 5) numbers the rest of the way. Stay with what you have.
QB- M. Ryan, T. Pryor
RB- A. Morris, L. Bell, A. Ellington, C. Ivory, M. James, D. Martin
WR- J. Nelson, A. Brown, J. Boykin, D. Heyward-Bey,
TE- J. Graham, C. Fleener

I would stay where you are. As the other guys said, Romo is a great ff start most of the time.
