Trade Blackmon? WHIR

Postby mzkp54 » Sat Aug 03, 2013 8:09 am

I've gotten a few offers for Blackmon lately and I'm curious as to what people's thoughts are on his current value. Several were weak, but 2 stuck out to me.

12 team PPR: RB-.5 WR-1 TE-1.25. QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 Flex
QB- Brees, Tannehill, Weeden
RB- CJ?K, Morris, BJGE, Dwyer, Benson, Helu
WR- Megatron, Jordy, Welker, TBMW, Blackmon, DRogers, Bess, Avant, Jean
TE- Olsen, FDavis, Hernandez, Celek

Offer 1:
Trade Blackmon for a 2014 1st (I would say mid-to-late)

Offer 2:
Trade Blackmon/2014 1st (from another team, I'd again guess mid-to-late) for Demarco Murray.

For the 2nd deal I could probably switch out DMC for Murray if I wanted to.

Another few offers were much weaker. What do you see Blackmon's value as, and would you go forward with either deal?

This is the angle I might try if I were you. If you were able to deal Blackman for a 2014 first round pick. Do you think you could package that pick and your 1st round pick to try and get the #1 overall pick?

I know i know what you're going to do I know who will have the #1 pick? If you wait until a week before the trade deadline, that will give you a good guess on the bottom 3 teams, trade your 2 firsts for his first and like a 3rd or something and maybe you get lucky and get that #1 pick to get a stud WR like Marqise Lee or Sammy Watkins.

I've done this a couple times in my leagues and got lucky to get a guy like T-Rich or Julio Jones.

Just an idea...good luck

I think both trades are pretty nice.

Again you need depth at RB now so offer #2 is the more attractive one and I would go with that and DO NOT try for DMC take Murray as he was offered to you.

Blackmon has 0 value in my opinion he is suspended 4 games, coming off of groin surgery and Gabbert is a nightmare.

Maybe you can put a contingency in the trade like we are able to in my league. Something like if Murray goes over 1,000 yards it's a 1st rd pick but if he is under 1,000 yards it's a 2nd rd pick. Something of that nature.

I agree that Murray is the way to go.
