Ok, so I was offered Chris Johnson for MJD and Ryan Torain. With Moss coming to town, CJ is going to be much more dangerous. Moss should open up lots of running lanes for CJ. First I will show you my lineup and then show the remaining schedules for both players.
Standard scoring, NO PPR: QB, 2RB, 2WR, FLEX, TE, DST, K QB: Vick, Eli Manning RB: Turner, MJD, Torain, Mathews, Ronnie Brown WR: Nicks, Boldin, Garcon TE: Heath Miller DST: Vikings K: Matt Bryant
Ok, so if I do the trade, I'd be a little thin at my Flex. Obviously Turner and CJ would be starts every week, but at my Flex i'd alternate based on matchups between Garcon and Mathews. As much as losing depth w/ Torain hurts, I see him as a Sell High type guy. Portis just practiced for the first time in 3 weeks yesterday, so it looks like Portis will be back soon, and they will become a tandem backfield. Torain also pulled a hammy last week, so he is somewhat banged up. Here are the upcoming scheds for MJD and CJ, and both are on bye's this week:
MJD's following games: HOU, CLE, @NYG, @TEN, OAK, @IND, WAS, @HOU
CJ's following games: @MIA, WAS, @HOU, JAC, IND, HOU, @KC, @IND
Both have extremely favorable schedules. I'm not going to put up Torain's schedule, but it gets pretty brutal for the 2nd half of the season. The only tough games MJD faces is @NYG and @TEN. CJ's only tough games are @MIA and @KC. The only thing is, I'm playing a huge game next week against a divisional opponent and I would really like to have MJD against Houston, rather than CJ @ MIA. But regardless, I can't decline a good trade just because of one matchup.
So what are your opinions on this trade, and do you think Torain is a keeper or a tradeable guy at this point. And do I have enough depth to do this trade. Thanks, and leave a link and i'll help in return.
