Arguments about trade

Postby JasonSeahorn » Fri Nov 14, 2008 9:23 pm

A trade of Brandon Jacobs for Eddie Royal is pending in a league, some managers are grumbling about it being too unfair. I don't see it as being that bad, Royal has a nice schedule down the way and the Broncos are passing a ton so I can see why Team B might want to do it. Team B is arguing that he doesn't have too much need for Jacobs (he also has Westbrook, CJ4.24, Turner, Ward, Chester Taylor), and that Royal is the best WR he was able to get after asking for trades. His other WRs are Colston, White, Braylon, and Holmes if that makes any difference. We start 2 RBs and 3 WRs...team A is in 2nd place and team B is in 3rd place so they both are still playoff contenders. Team A has: Jamal Lewis, Addai, Slaton, and Hightower for RB; Andre, Jennings, Steve Smith, Royal, Jenkins for WR.

(yes those teams look very stacked, it's a keeper league and they traded away future picks to win this year)

I don't want to veto, I just want some validation about it from you guys.

On paper this trade makes both teams a little bit better, thats the point of trading...I think the other guys in your league should chill and look at the needs of both teams and not just the names involved.

As long as you don't have a reason to think that these guys are trying to pull a fast one (which should be unlikely if they're ranked second and third), no problem. I can see why people's knee-jerk reaction is that Royal isn't enough for a running back who's probably top 10 to top 15 in the league, but looking at his other running bench and only starting 2 RBs but 3 WRs, it makes perfect sense.

In PPR leagues, this probably shouldn't even be put to the question...

Jacobs has 144 points vs. 142 for Royal in my standard Yahoo PPR league. In leagues that reward return yardage, Royal has 180 points - more than Jacobs.

People need to take a "happy pill" and relax... Trade is fine... it helps both teams and thats why you make a deal.

Let it go!
