How do I exploit my buddy's die-hard Raider fandom?

Postby keckelma » Tue Aug 30, 2011 8:36 pm

Hey everyone - new here... and I appreciate any input. I should be checking in daily, and I'll do my best to throw in my 2 cents. It should be mentioned that I've loved NFL football since I was a child, but I'm new to fantasy.

Anyways, I'm in a 10 man league. We're all pretty good friends, and my buddy is a die hard Raider fan. I drafted McFadden - and this morning (within an hour of our league opening) I got a text from him: "What will it take to get McFadden from you?". I knew this was coming - he was irate at our offline draft when I picked DM. So, as you'll see in my roster, I didn't do too well in the draft (I guess I don't know, this is my first year doing FF), and neither did he. I know I have plenty of leverage, and I'm not thrilled about getting rid of McFadden, so what would you guys (and gals?) suggest I offer? Keep in mind I'll be giving up only McFadden, and I don't really need to hide the fact that this trade will be in my favor... that's how much of a Raider fan he is.

My roster:
  • Michael Vick
  • Sam Bradford
  • Darren McFadden
  • Jahvid Best
  • Mike Tolbert
  • Danny Woodhead
  • Darren Sproles
  • Calvin Johnson
  • Brandon Lloyd
  • Percy Harvin
  • Johnny Knox
  • Braylon Edwards
  • Vernon Davis
  • Tony Gonzalez
    DEF / K
  • Pittsburgh / Billy Cundiff

My buddy's roster:
  • Aaron Rodgers
  • Michael Turner
  • Beanie Wells
  • Marshawn Lynch
  • Pierre Thomas
  • Willis McGahee
  • Hakeem Nicks
  • Dez Bryant
  • Anquan Boldin
  • Lance Moore
  • Jacoby Ford
  • Antonio Gates
  • Chris Cooley
    DEF / K
  • Baltimore AND New Orleans / Garrett Hartley

Not sure what your starters are, but I don't see anything he has other than A Rogers that would be worth you giving up McFadden for and since you have Vick, there's no reason to trade for Rogers.

The only scenario I would maaaaaybe consider is DMac for Antonio Gates AND Beanie Wells.

And I doubt I would do that.
