V-Jax...Ut-oh

Postby Lickitysplit131 » Thu Sep 24, 2009 12:36 am

I just traded V-Jax and Larry Johnson for LT.

I feel good about the move, but I wanna hear what some of you gotta say.

Personally I wouldn't have done it. I do think that VJax is in for a good year... top 15 WR for sure. But LJ can be a hex on your team. I've seen him outright dropped in quite a few leagues already. Now while I agree that LJ will get some decent numbers here and there, he will just be too inconsistent and you will need to play his matchups. Otherwise you'll be in for a headache of a season. LT isn't done. He isn't at the top anymore and yes Sproles will cut into his numbers, but that's good considering that he needs to stay fresh. You didn't post your team so it's hard to get a grasp of your situation. But I want no part of LJ this year. I'd rather have a Donald Brown, Ahmad Bradshaw, or Hightower before him. I hope it works out for you... but get ready for a backup plan.

LOL! Sorry, disregard my post.

Yes you made out good on the deal. I forgot my coffee this morning and misread it.

Depends on league type and your roster. In the one league I have VJax (a dynasty) no way would I have done that. In the keeper league I have LT, I wouldn't have because I wouldn't want LJ.

Yup, you had it backwards, I got LT for VJax and LJohnson..

I also have Gates on my team which is a reason I wanted to trade VJax badly.

It's a standard scoring league with .5 PPR.

QB Rothlisberger
RB Grant
RB Forte
WR Calvin Johnson
WR Earl Bennett(Yes, I know. But I thought for LT this was too good to pass up)
WR/RB Ladanian Tomlinson

I also have JStewart on the bench who I feel I can get a decent WR for.

I have VJax on both of my teams this year and had him on one last year. Because of this, I have watched alot of Chargers games the last couple of years, and my opinion is that LT has lost his explosiveness. He doesn't seem to the acceleration or ability to make defenders miss like in the past. Also, I don't think the offense has him as the focus anymore.
Frankly, I am not a big LJ fan either, but I think the key component of this trade was VJax. Good luck tho ;-D
