Trade: Brady/Stafford; Peterson/McFadden

Postby Ciaran » Tue Aug 30, 2011 1:08 pm

12-team league (11th pick), standard scoring other than 0.5 PPR; 0.5/-0.5 per completion/incompletion; and passing TD/INT = 4/-2. Team should be in my sig.

Considering trading Brady and McFadden in exchange for Adrian Peterson and Stafford. I wasn't able to cuff McFadden in the draft or via trade (which scares me), but I could cuff Peterson (Gerhart/Booker) and Stafford (Hill) immediately off the FA/Waiver wire. I also have Flacco as my current backup to Brady.

I like Peterson more than McFadden, and I think Stafford -- while a risk and natural downgrade from Brady -- has an alarming amount of upside this year.

Talk me in or out of this one, guys. WHIR , and many thanks in advance.

I would not do this one. McFadden has too much upside, and I fear Stafford may be getting overhyped. and really fear that he is just too much of an injury risk. I just think you are giving up two really good players for a really good player and a supposedly good player with major injury risk.

Even trade, but I would take it. Get an upgrade at RB and add a young QB who appears "elite" potential. FWIW, I am slightly biased against AD but love the upside of Stafford.
