Postby paydirt264 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 10:02 am

1 season, h2h, 12 teams.. here is my team:
QB: Matt Schaub
RB:Adrian Peterson
RB:Rashard Mendenhall
WR:Mike Wallace
WR:Brandon Lloyd
WR:Sidney Rice
TE:Zach Miller
K:Gostkowski
DST:Giants

R:Felix Jones

I'm really stuck on this one. I haven't watched much of Ryan Mathews. Should I accept?

Is this is a PPR league? If so, I'd definitely pull the trigger.

In a non-PPR league, this is a little bit tougher. Ryan Mathews has upside, but remains an injury risk with a TD vulture in Mike Tolbert. Nicks looks to be a substantial upgrade over Sidney Rice. I like the deal ; it is by no means a steal, both sides are fair. The reason why I would do this deal with your team is your other RBs. Adrian Peterson is about as safe as the come in the runningback department, and Felix Jones is poised to have a solid year as well. If Ryan Mathews stays healthy, then you have 3 solid backs. If Mathews falters, you have Jones to step in and Hakeem Nicks in your WR slot.

First of all, welcome to the Cafe - hope you stick around and we see more of you in the future ;-D

As for the deal, I think I'd roll with Matthews/Nicks over those other two either way, but LMack is right about it being much better deal if it's PPR as Matthews will be closer to Mendy and Nicks stays equally beastly over Rice. I think it betters your team either way though as Jones is a great stopgap if Matthews falters for whatever reason and I'd rather have Wallace, Lloyd and Nicks than Wallace, Lloyd and Rice in his current situation, etc. :-?
