Trade Question

Postby brian31078 » Mon Jul 16, 2007 12:14 pm

I was wondering if this would be a good trade, or do I just need to keep the guys I have. A guy in my Fantasy Football League offered me RB Ronnie Brown (Miami) and TE Randy McMichael (STL) for RB Fred Taylor (JAX) and Benjamin Watson (NE). Does this sound like a good deal or am I getting screwed.

I'd give you the edge in this deal - a lot of people are high on Watson this year now that Daniel Graham has gone to Denver, but Brady has so many weapons at WR this year, I really don't see Watson's numbers taking a big leap. I think McMichael will do well being reunited with his former offensive coordinator, Scott Linehan, under whom he had pretty good numbers in Miami - I think St Louis will go to their TE a little more this year. This part of the trade is fairly even.

Brown vs Taylor - you come out the winner here - Taylor ain't getting any younger and he's only turned in two complete 16 game seasons in his career - plus there's no reason to believe we won't see a repeat of last season with Maurice Jones-Drew getting a lot of carries and most of the TD's. Brown is clearly the better choice here despite concerns about Miami's offensive line - and with Ricky Williams out of the picture he'll have the ball to himself - and Trent Green will be the answer at QB this season. Brown is clearly the better pick here IMO.

I'd say go ahead and pull the trigger on this one! ;-D

I would do that trade in a heartbeat! You are getting the better end of the more critical piece of the deal.. RB! I agree with stomperrob on Watson and actually like McMichael a little better this year. So, go for it!

Yeah, definatly do it. Not much of a question in my mind, and that's coming from a Patriots fan who is really high on Watson.
