Should I trade for a QB? WHIR

Postby KudzuKiller » Tue Aug 23, 2011 5:23 pm

Should I look for a trade to grab a QB upgrade in a 2-QB league? I would probably have to involve Roddy or Fitz. I was thinking of going after maybe Matt Ryan or Matt Shaub?
Here's what I'm looking like now. Will help with your dilema if needed.

QB: Sam Bradford, Matt Hasselbeck, John Beck
RB: Arian Foster, Beanie, Shonn Greene, Hightower
WR: Roddy White, Larry Fitz, Lance Moore, Lee Evans
TE: Owen Daniels
D: Ravens
K: Kaeding

I would try and package shonn greene and lance moore if possible. If you have to trade Roddy White or Fitz, I'd go Roddy and try to get a top QB like Rodgers, Vick or Rivers.

I think you almost have to, QB is the position that is going to get you the most points and IMO the top 6 or 7 QB's will get as many points as both of your QB's combined putting you at a severe disadvantage. No doubt that Fitz and Roddy are both WR1's but they wont be able to make up for the slack from your QB's. Shop high and move lower as you start getting a good feel from the other owners in your league.

Side comment - if I was another owner, I wouldnt give up a QB like Schaub or Ryan for a package like Greene and Moore. If you want to go this route mabye Beanie will have a little more leverage in landing you a stronger QB. You gotta do something

I was thinking the exact same thing, ship out Green and someone else. I'd ship out Fitz over Roddy if I had to though.

Greene and Moore won't net you much in return. I think you need to look at a Greene, FItz and Hass type deal for a top 8 QB and a top 20 WR and RB with upside. Look at the QB's taht you passed on when you grabbed FItz and Roddy, that will be all you can get in return for a straight up deal for one of them. Likely a little less.
