MY: Steven Jackson and Miles Austin for HIS: Ray Rice and Knowshon Moreno
MY TEAM: QB: Matt Schaub WR: Randy Moss WR: Anquan Boldin RB: Steven Jackson RB: Beanie Wells TE: Zach Miller W/R: Jonathan Stewart Bench: Tony Romo Bench: Miles Austin Bench: Nate Burleson Bench: Devin Hester Bench: Santana Moss Bench: Laurence Maroney
Looking at your current roster, I think Moreno and Wells (your RB2 options) would basically be a push, so the question is do you like Rice more than SJax? As much as I like Rice (I'm a Rutgers alum), I wouldn't trade SJax to get him. So even though losing Austin is meaningless for you, this doesn't improve your team imo.
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
I'd personally pull the trigger on this one. Stewart and Wells are in more of time share so you'll be playing both of them based on matchups. Moreno is starting to separate himself from Buckhalter, especially since his fumble last week. It also appears that he's hurting too. I think this gives you two solid options heading into the playoffs. While Jax might score a little more than Rice, Moreno has more value to you starting that Austin on your bench. Mostly b/c you're not sitting Moss, and Boldin's playoff schedule is downright tasty.
i would not do this one. Rice's schedule is very hard going forward (PITx2, GB), he still has McGahee around (who got some carries in the last game and i think they'll use him more). Austin is a great situational play.
The Rice v Jackson debat could go on forever. I have Rice and have my concerns, enough concern to trade him? Probably not. you should only trade if you are improving your team. So, lets consider Rice for jackson a push. You will be getting moreno for austin. And looking at your lineup, I would not play either of those unless you suffered an injury. so, you gain nothing in this trade. Now, instead of moreno, I would be looking to upgrade your tight end. Thats your week spot. If you were getting rice and a better TE, you do the deal.
