FJones & Colston for McFadden?

Postby ThePrez » Sun Aug 28, 2011 2:17 pm

Would you trade FJones and Colston for McFadden? This is a dynasty league and we keep everyone.

Below is my roster with top starters in bold

If CJ doesn't start the season then I would either play Felix or another WR at flex.

Thoughts? My only combo I think I could offer would be FJones and Maclin.

My roster --
QBs - Rivers, EManning, Orton, CNewton
WRs - AJohnson, GJennings, MWilliams (TB), Colston, Maclin, BTate, Burress
RBs - APeterson, CJohnson, Mendenhall, FJones, Tolbert
TE - Witten, Olsen
K - (none yet)
D - NY Jets

The only future move I'm planning to make is dropping Tate for a kicker.

Weekly start - QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, WR/RB, K, DEF

Thanks!

Colston (his injury issues each year) might be my guy to unload first.

Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing. Gotta keep thinking long term for the dynasty league.

Update..... Sounds like he will do the Felix/Colston for McFadden deal. That will give me a free spot to get a kicker.

I'm also thinking about dropping BTate for another WR flier. Just seems like NE has a good amount of options at WR.

Here are some WRs currently on waivers.. standard yahoo scoring PLUS 0.5 ppr

JNelson (I have Jennings)
JSimpson
HDouglas
EBennett
JaJones (I have AJohnson)
ERoyal
JCribbs
ARoberts
Cotchery
JBaldwin
TYoung
EDecker

I see nothing worng with it but I think you are selling yourself a bit short. Jones is a decent name right now in trade value terms and Colston still holds solid value as well. I think if you want McFadden make the pitch but ask for a project WR in return. You could then drop Tate for your kicker.

I like Young, Nelson and Simpson from your list.

I think Felix Jones is at an all time high right now...great time to sell.

I'd make that trade packaging him with Colston for McFadden.

I wouldn't drop Tate just yet, would probably be a good idea to wait and make sure Arian Fosters hammy injury isn't too serious.

Sorry... a lot of Tate's out there. I have the WR Tate from New England.
