I have received this trade offer, in which I would be giving up Brady and Bush. My league counts return yards and TDs (1 point per 20 yards, 6 points per TD - same as for receiving and rushing), so Bush has a little more value than usual (as does Leon Washington, who is currrently my RB2). However, I am still very tempted to do this deal, since I think the upgrade at RB through this deal will outweigh the downgrade at QB. I also now think that Tom Brady is not going to return to anything close to his 2007 levels, so the difference between him and Cutler might not be as severe as one might first think. Does anyone disagree?
It is a 12-team keeper league, which starts 2 WR's and 2 RB's, with a third WR/RB swing spot (the keeper status is another consideration, sicne Brady is non-keepable in the format, but Grant and Cutler are keepable).
This is my roster:
QB: Tom Brady, Trent Edwards
RB: Chris Johnson, Leon Washington, Darren McFadden, Reggie Bush, Ahmad Bradshaw
WR: Calvin Johnson, Marques Colston, Devin Hester, Steve Smith, Joshua Cribbs
TE: Tony Gonzalez, Todd Heap
K: Nate Kaeding
I would appreciate any input. As always, I'll answer any of yours. Just post a link. Thanks.
