So i wanted to get your guys thoughts, might be a stupid trade but in 3 years doing fantasy football, i have never actually gone through with a trade.
I was originally proposed to receive Steve Breaston/Brandon Jackson and i would give up Hillis. I said no way, Breaston is having surgery and i don't want anyone from the Packers backfield (even though i'm a die hard Pack fan) at this point in time. So the guy sent me an email asking what it would take to get one of my second teir running backs, specifically Green-Ellis or Hillis, both of which i've picked up on the waiver wire. So i went through his team and I struggled to find something i really like, so i was thinking posibly Forte for Green-Ellis and Hillis. My thought process was that Green-Ellis is a NE RB and i generally stay away from them and Hillis is a good sell high candidate (although the Cle offensive line looks pretty good), who knows if Harrison ends up coming back into the picture. I see Forte as more consistent but i hate his offensive line.
Here's a breakdown of my team: (format is 1 qb, 2 rb, 2 wr, 1 flex, 1 te, k, dst)
QB: Gradkowski (for this week only), Romo and Roethlisberger
RB: Gore, Best, Hillis, Green-Ellis, Barber
WR: Megatron, S Smith (Car), Knox, Sims-Walker, M Williams (TB)
Here is the breakdown of his team:
QB: Brees, Henne
RB: Forte, Forsett, Spiller, B Jackson, K Darby
WR: Driver, R. Moss, S. Moss, Breaston, McCluster, D. Thomas (Den)
TE: Z Miller
K : Rackers
Do you guys see a better trade? Obviously he's hurting at the RB position and I have some depth, the way i saw it, i'd have Best, Gore and Forte as my 3 RBs (Barber as well but not counting on him)....should i propose this trade or do you guys see something better?
