So I have made a few moves to allow my team to look like this....and need some advice on a potential trade. PPR 12 teamer.
QB ---Matt Ryan RBs ---Ray Rice, Frank Gore, Joseph Addai, Jamaal Charles Wrs---Randy Moss, Marques Colston, Mike Sims Walker, Nate Burleson, Laverneus Coles TE---- Vernon Davis
I am very happy with my team, but feel like i am one upgrade away (QB) from a potential championship. I have been offered a trade from a 7-2 team who is leading the leauge. I am currently at 5-4.
I have been offered Brees, Benson, And Ochocinco..........for.........Moss, Rice, Matt Ryan, and Addai.
His team looks like this right now.
QB--Brees Rbs--pierre thomas, benson, hightower, moats and sproles Wr.--Andre Johnson, Driver, Ochocinco, Ginn, and Austin Collie TE --Jason Witten
I am leaning towards accepting it. Brees is a lock, and Benson and ocho still play oak cle and det (back to back to back btw) and kc week 16 if i get there. Although i hate to lose moss and ray rice in a ppr ...... anyone please advice here??????
Trade accepted team will look like this his team will look like this
QB Brees QB Ryan RB Benson, gore, jamaal charles RB Rice, Thomas, hightower, moats, sproles WRs Ochocinco, Colston, mike sims walker, burleson, coles WR Moss, Andre Johnson, driver, ginn, collie TE Vernon davis. TE Witten
IN NEED OF SOME SERIOUS OPIONS HERE GUYS (OH AND IF U ARE THINKING MY TEAM LOOKS SHORT ON PLAYERS, I HAVE STASHED 3 DEFS FOR OPTIMAL MATCHUPS THROUGHOUT REMAINDER OF SEASON) CINCY BEING ONE W THAT SCHEDULE I MENTIONED
I'd pull the trigger. Brees has a great looking schedule the rest of the way and cincy is legit. Being a PPR league makes it a slightly closer call than it would be otherwise, but I still like the deal for you.
I'd counter with Ryan, Addai and Sims-Walker (maybe Colston if he balks) for Brees and Moats and just hope my starting WRs or starting RBs don't get injured. At this point in the fantasy season, you sacrifice depth for starters and hope you avoid the injury bug.
I think, in a PPR league, while you may be improving your team, you're improving his by a bit too much. Rice, Andre Johnson and Randy Moss may well be 1-2 at their respective positions to end the year in PPR. He'd be loaded, even without Brees.
thats the one reason i havent accepted yet... This is the 1st place team and also my best friend.. im not looking for 2nd place here. wanna kick his ass. tryin to be careful not to improve him to much.
Wow, that is a blockbuster. I look at it like this:
Brees is a big upgrade over Ryan Moss is slightly (but not a ton) ahead of 85 Rice over Benson, only because of ppr Addai as the kicker.
The problem I see is, you get a big upgrade at QB, but take a hit at RB and WR. He takes a hit at QB, but upgrades hiw RBs and WRs. The question is, will the more points at QB overcome the RB and WR. My guess is, no. But I can see why you would pull the trigger.
12 Team League. We start 2 QBs and get .5 PPR, otherwise standard scoring QBs: Stafford, Fitzpatrick, Collins RBs: Charles, Mendenhall, Best, Starks, Carter, Karim WRs: D. Jackson, Marshall, S. Smith, Green, TE: Hernandez, Cook
