Thinking of trading Bradshaw for Blount...

Postby Branmancanjam » Mon Aug 15, 2011 2:41 am

I play in a 10 team 0.5ppr league w/ standard 1qb 2rb 3wr 1te roster. It's also a keeper league where we give up the round a keeper was drafted. I currently have Bradshaw (5th round sacrifice) and have been offered L. Blount (13th round sacrifice) straight up. Every year we bump the round sacrifice up by 2 rounds to discourage keeping the same player forever. So this gives Blount a bit more longevity. However he doesn't catch many passes. But, it's only 0.5ppr.

I welcome any and all thoughts...

I'll be honest I like Blount more than bradshaw...but I would still try to get a little more than just Blount. Whether its a difference maker or not, Bradhshaws value is slightly higher. So if it was me I would ask for some more value, if you can't go with that trade. I think Blount eventually is a lot better, and his value is crazy good being in that round.

First of all, thanks for the reply. Originally I asked for a pick along w/ Blount to even out the value. He countered with the "straight up" offer. I told him I was perfectly fine keeping AB but that Blount and a mid-round pick is a done deal. He doesn't know I'm considering the straight up version at this point. I plan on continuing to push for a pick.

I'd keep pushing for a pick, but in the long run, I think I take this deal.

i had a very similar trade in my league, i had to choose between Bradshaw as a 6th or Blount as an 8th. I chose Bradshaw based on the recieving yardage but it was a tough call. with your additional ppr its still kinda tough because Blount is so much lower draft pick.

If the rest of your team is pretty solid, i might take a shot at Blount because i think he has more upside. If you already have a few hit-or-miss type players, i'd go with the safer Bradshaw.

I think this is a good deal to consider even with a straight up offer. I would keep pushing for the draft pick as well, but Bradshaw has to split carries already and it's never a given whether he will be the goal line back or not. As far as Im aware Blount is the best option for goal line back for the Bucs. Not to mention that if you trade with the whole keeper rule you will have to give up the 13th round pick instead of the 5th and you can use that 5th round pick more to your advantage in the future.

I would keep Bradshaw. I have him in my keeper league and I expect a big year.

Bradshaw over Blount, especially in a PPR.
