Dynasty trade

Postby TruNinerFan » Mon May 09, 2011 11:39 am

Do you think that R. Matthews and Brandon Marshall for Arian Foster is a fair offer in a dynasty league. I would be offering matthews/marshall. I am loaded at WR. I have Calvin, Bowe, Dez. AJ Green, P. Harvin, S. Moss, L. Moore.

You can always offer... but if it's me I would reject it. My rule of thumb for dealing an elite RB is getting a slightly less RB and a very strong WR.

I don't think that Matthews/Marshall is enough. Dealing Matthews is tough, because while he's still young, it looks like a timeshare (and losing goal line looks as well) with Tolbert. Marshall looks better if the league is PPR.

That being said, you have the depth at WR to make a more attractive offer if your original is declined.


Last thing... I think this is the wrong time to buy Foster in a dynasty. Even if Tate is not as big a factor as some may fear, Foster is due to have a statistic regression to the mean... it's going to be very very difficult to duplicate the 2010 numbers (2009-2010 Chris Johnson anyone?). It's not like his value is going to go any HIGHER than it is right now. If you believe in Foster, it may be more prudent to wait, especially if the owner has injury/free agent issues at the WR position as we get into the season. Just my two cents....

I always start low because you never know what the other owner is thinking and he might accept. I think its fair offer. ;-D
