Benson for Eli - Dynasty

Postby The305MiamiCanes » Thu Aug 18, 2011 6:49 pm

I was offered Cedric Benson for Eli, Im not a fan on Benson so do you think a deal for Daniel Thomas could get done?

QB-Schaub/Eli/Dalton
RB-Thomas Jones/Jacobs/Hardesty/Helu
WR-Santana/Jennings/Floyd/Burleson/Breaston/LaFell/Nate Washington/Andre Roberts
TE-Vernon/T-Gonz/Rudolph

You def. need RB help. It could be a start. I would try for Thomas since it is a dynasty. You will be strapped for a backup QB for a bit.

See if you can get a little more for him. I don't think Benson for 2 years will help you. You could package something for a better RB.

You gotta get some RB help. Benson would work but being a "veteran" his long term value is low. Work the trades to try and get as much quality you can. Schaub doesn't have a bye until week 11 so you'll have time to get a WW pickup by then. Use Eli to get RB help wherever you can.
Thank God for Football Season.

You definitely need RB help, but Benson is a temporary fix at best. Id try for a younger/better RB, even if you had to trade Schaub and keep Eli. Eli's stats have improved every year and i expect the same this season. Without a real backup QB , Eli's less of an injury concern than Schaub anyway.
