you need to make sure you keep your depth which will help you on bye weeks especially. mathews is top 20, ingrem is top 15 with HIGH upside and marshell is top 15 in dynasty which I would rather have then cj2k

Getting the number 2 overall player isnt worth giving up Finley, Marshall and Mathews?

I dont really know what a dynasty team is, but I would make the trade. I would try to get more for ingram though. Try to get another rb or wr instead of just Ingram. Then, make the trades!


Do me a favor?

Even after all of these posts, I am still convinced that I should do this deal. Am I just missing something because I have been thinking about it all day? Even though I ultimately trade away Marshall, Mathews and Finley, I would have Chris Johnson. Since I have three QBs, I could ultimately trade Vick and get back a nice package whether WR, TE, or RB. I think that Gronkowski, Hernandez or Cook could start for me regardless and I would have Johnson, Charles, and McCoy as my starting RBs with Megatron and Fitz as my WRs still. SO, I shouldn't make this deal?

Thanks for helping mine. It definitely sounds like you want to do the deal, but I probably would hold off. I am a big fan of Finley and feel like you are giving up a lot. In PPR you can make the argument that Lesean Mccoy is more valuable than Chris Johnson. Additionally, there is no guarantee that you are going to be significantly upgrading over Charles by having CJ2K. I think the issue is not that you are trading from positions of depth to get a stud, but that you are downgrading at other positions without significantly improving at the other. I think that you can argue that your TE depth provides you with other TE 1 options, but Finley has the potential to be such a huge advantage at that position. Additionally, while I am not a huge fan of Marshall, I think that he provides great value at WR3, and you are definitely downgrading there. Your RB3 goes up significantly, but assuming you only start 2, it doesn't make much sense to have three stud rbs, at the cost of two other positions.

I can start three, there are 2 FLEX positions which include RB, so I can start all 3!
