McNabb+Winslow for VD+Garrard?

Postby benb18a » Sun Jul 13, 2008 2:25 pm

Yeah this trade just went down in a public Yahoo league I'm in. The traders swear up and down there is no collusion. They claim the huge upside with Vernon Davis and David Garrard is the reason it is a good trade. I'm sorry, but when you trade an elite TE and an elite QB who is finally going to be healthy from his injury in 06 for a QB in a completely run-dominated offense with NOBODY to throw to, and a TE in the worst offense in the league who has been considered a semi-bust at this point, all the upside in the world wouldn't make it not be lopsided.

Well yeah, but looking in the fantasy profiles of these guys, they have plenty of FF experience, many with more than I have.

Yes, that is mighty mighty fishy. McNabb > Garrard and Winslow >>> VD. Upside be damned, my vote is collusion.

I don't think that it is that bad. You have to give owners the freedom to rate their own players.

Think of the trade this way:
fantasy starting TE for fantasy starting TE
borderline fantasy starting QB for borderline IR QB

It looks a little more even when you break it down
