A.Gates trade for Grant and Vernon Davis? 100% Whir

Postby soon179 » Tue Aug 23, 2011 4:02 pm

10 team non ppr/standard
I feel I am kinda of weak at RB .
Here is what I am working with in this league

QB T.Brady
RB Foster
RB2 Deangelo Williams
Flex Tolbet
TE- A.Gates
WR Jennings
WR 2 Colsten

Bench RBS
Daniel Thomas.j starks,Woodhead,Ridely,D.Ward

Bench WRs
Harvin,Boldin,J.Jones.J Nelson

I know MIA Runs the ball alot and Bush shouldnt take too many of the touches from rookie Thomas but I am never sold on rookies.

With grant and already having starks I would have all GB rushing yards for what they are worth this year

Gates gets the high end WR points when he is not hurt

Wondering if this trade will give more or take more ? whir

Because this league has a flex spot, I think I would do the deal. Vernon Davis is still a top tight end, but I'm sure you know that when Antonio Gates is healthy he is far and away the number one tight end. Without a doubt it is a downgrade at TE, but Ryan Grant should be able to put up RB2 numbers.

Hands down do this deal. The difference between Gates and Davis should not be huge this year, and you get Ryan Grant!

I'd do it for sure, Gates was still hurting from the injury last year last time I checked.

Vernon is a very solid TE and yeah, you could use an RB so I like it.

I love Gates but this sures up your RB situation and is not a huge downgrade at TE. Take the deal.

I don't think you are as bad off at RB as you think, but regardless I like Grant to have a bounce back year, and the drop from Gates to Davis isn't as much as you think.

I'd do this deal and plug Grant into my flex.

When I first read the title of the post I thought there had to be a catch. After reading the entire post I see there is no catch. This is a steal for you. Make this deal in a heart beat and don't look back.

Please see mine
