I may be new here, but I promise to be very active, just need a little advice.
I need to upgrade wy WRs and want to know if this is fair. IDP league......
I Proposed Josh Reed, James Stewart, and Andre Carter(DT)


Hines Ward, Dwight Freeney, and London Fletcher.
All I really wanted out of this deal was Ward, and a slight upgrade at DT, and I will drop Fletcher as soon as it goes through, but had to make equal quanity trade.
Am I giving up too much, or trying to be a Greedy Bastage.

By the way, here is the rest of my roster from a 10 team league.... Thanks for your help.

Brooks, Aaron NOS QB - 10
Manning, Peyton IND QB - 7

Green, Ahman GBP RB - 8
Green, William CLE RB - 9
McAllister, Deuce NOS RB - 10
Stewart, James DET RB - 6
Taylor, Fred JAC RB - 7

Jackson, Darrell SEA WR - 4
Johnson, Chad CIN WR - 6
Mason, Derrick TEN WR - 9
Morgan, Quincy CLE WR - 9
Moss, Randy MIN WR - 6
Reed, Josh BUF WR - 9
Taylor, Travis BAL WR - 5

Clark, Desmond CHI TE - 3

Brown, Josh SEA PK - 4

Carter, Andre SFO DL - 10

Edwards, Donnie SDC LB - 6

Definately a good trade for you. I doubt very seriously he'll take it, though.

How did you mahage to get McAllister, F Taylor, W Green and A Green in a 10 team league? Was everybody else in your league brain-dead?

Josebach,, thanks for your reply.
And yes, after 6 seasons with roughly the same owners, I have come to the conclusion that most of the owners in my league are indeed Brain Dead. For instance, the 1st pick in the draft was Ray Lewis...... yeesh

I don't think he would take the trade, but that is the least of your worries, you have a great team as it is. If he is real weak at RB he just might bite.

Up to how many RBs can you start, because if you only start two you might actually want to offer him Fragile Fred for Ward and another player on his roster. He would probably take it, and you would still have A. Green and McCallister as starters, and W.Green and J.Stewart as a reserve.

So even though it looks as though youy would be giving up too much (Fred Taylor), both of you would be gaining from this trade. You would be giving up a bench player and get a top ten receiver in return.

So keep that in mind, try to trade Fred Taylor for Ward AND another player.

IF that doesn't work, try to trade Fred for another top ten receiver straight up like Joe Horn, Plaxico, Moulds, KROB, or even Owens (I would be surprised if the other guy rejected).

Plus you would make hte injury riddled Taylor someone else's problem.
