I have been offered AJ for MJD. I am hurting at Wide Reciever. Should I pull the trigger on a hurt AJ. Current format is Standard. 1 point for every 10 yards receiving or rushing. 6 points for TD. This is not a PPR League.
My Current Lineup
Peyton Manning Pierre Garcon Eddie Royal Mario Manningham Michael Turner MJD Shiancoe Bironas Dallas D/ST
Bench Jamaal Charles Mike Williams (TB) Brandon Tate Steve Johnson Chris Cooley
Man, I think I would. You could slide Charles in at RB, but the big problem is, you would have no RB on the bench. If I were you, I would try and trade MJD for a lower RB and a lower WR than AJ. But I think you need to do something at WR. Your best WR is Royal, and I don't think that will get you far enough.
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 agree with everyone here, you need the help at wr and getting the best in the game is amazing.. mjd is all that the jags have on offense and u have to do it.. u have the rb help that can fill in and charles will be a beast in the 2nd half of the season. thanks for the help with mine.
Even if AJ sits this week, it's a good deal for you. Trades are usually about long term value unless they happen very late in the season, and even then, mostly about long term value the rest of the way. Turner for AJ is fantastic, but the other deal is good too. Complete either one, and don't forget to send that thank you card! Good luck!
Thanks for the help on mine. I may do this trade (although I think MJD is more valuable than AJ), but I certainly wouldn't do it before this weekend. MJD has a juicy matchup against the Bills and will likely put up big numbers, while AJ may not even play and if he does - I don't expect a big week. Hang tight this weekend, get the major points from MJD, and reassess your situation on Monday. I would look to shop MJD to other owners of top WRs - see if they need a RB - and see if they will part with said top WR (Wayne, Austin, White, maybe a few others). If not, I may see what J Charles will get you. IF neither of those options are promising, then I look back at the MJD for AJ trade.
