Risk trading Bradford to Peyton owner?

Postby taw856 » Thu Sep 08, 2011 4:16 pm

12-team league w/ 4-pt passing TDs...

My Team
QB: Matt Schaub
RB: Chris Johnson
RB: Steven Jackson
RB/WR: LeGarrette Blount
WR: Brandon Marshall
WR: Santana Moss
TE: Owen Daniels
K: Alex Henery
DST: Eagles

QB Sam Bradford
RB Roy Helu
RB Darren Sproles
WR Mike Thomas
WR Braylon Edwards
TE Aaron Hernandez
DST Chargers

Opponent's Team
QB: Donovan McNabb
RB: Michael Turner
RB: Frank Gore
RB/WR: Cedric Benson
WR: DeSean Jackson
WR: Steve Johnson
TE: Greg Olsen
K: Adam Vinatieri
DST: Bears

QB Peyton Manning
RB Joseph Addai
RB Kendall Hunter
RB Jason Snelling
WR Chad Ochocinco
WR Robert Meachem
WR Derrick Mason

Would it be worth it for me to try to exploit the dilemma of the owner in my league who has Peyton Manning, at the risk of leaving myself without a good backup either if Schaub went down? I'm thinking something like Bradford+Sproles FOR Benson+McNabb.
A. Rodgers outscores D. Brees in ESPN standard scoring by 40+.
D. McFadden plays 16 games (but ineffectively for someone whose only problem we always assumed was health).
M. Lynch=not a Top 10 RB.
V. Cruz=Top 7 WR.
G. Tate=Top 36 WR.

Are you having second thoughts about Sproles after last nights game?

Keep in mind that Schaub does have an injury history. Last two years he has stayed healthy and played all 16 games, but he missed 3 1/2 games in 2008 and 5 1/2 games in 2007.

I think that bradford/sproles for Benson/McNabb is a little too generous. Hopefully the guy is sweating it and you will be able to get more out of him than that. You are sitting good at RB so I think I would try to get a good WR out of him to try to improve your bench in that area. Try a bradford/edwards for Mcnabb/d.Jax and see if he bites on that. If not, then I would even do a mcnabb/Johnson trade.

I agree with the above poster.

Also... You'd be helping his starting line-up... he'd be *maybe* helping your bench.

Screw that. Get something that improves your starters if you're going to bailout another GM.

I'd offer up Bradford and Moss for DJax and see how desperate he is

I agree with the guys above, you are giving away too much. He is the one in trouble. And unless someone else trades with him, he will be in trouble in week 3, 5, 9 etc. Let this week or more play out and see how players do. Then offer him the trade you want.

Someone in my league has the Manning/Kolb combo and the best QB on the waiver wire is Fitzpatrick. I offered him a trade but then pulled it back so I can see how players do this week.
