Matt Ryan or Big Ben for Addai or Lynch

Postby The LiL GianT » Fri Sep 09, 2011 1:11 am

PPR League 12 teams
QB-RB-RB-WR-WR-WR-TE


I have both Matt Ryan and Big Ben but my RB2 is Jacobs/McGahee/D.Thomas

So I'm planning on trading one of my QBs for a RB

I realize I'll have to pickup a QB off F/A but I think it will still be worth it...what do you guys think?


He has both Addai and Lynch and had Peyton Manning and now only has Mark Sanchez because of Manning's injury...so he is pretty desperate...

So what would be the best trade for me, and should I even trade...

Right now I'm thinking
Big Ben for Lynch

Big Ben is worse than Matt Ryan and Lynch is better than Addai.....right?

I think it's a good move. I'd make the offer. You're trading a bench spot for a starter.

I don't know if Lynch is better than Addai but I do think he is less of a risk. I had them ranked right next to each other and have the two as my RB3/4 in a 12 team league. Lynch was ranked one spot higher and I drafted him first, but I'm starting Addai this week. I would rather have Ryan than Roethlisberger, but those are two other players I had ranked real closely.

Help with these WRs? http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=495283

IMO, you should be able to do better than Lynch for either QB. I think you can get more towards a Blount/Reggie Bush/Tim Hightower tier of RB.
Maybe I'm just not a Lynch fan but I do not know what to make of the Seahawks offense right now. Perhaps wait after Week 1 games are done then do a trade offer.

You can def get a better rb for either QB dont settle for addai or lynch.

Who is is #1 rb because you have 2 #1 qbs and i dont think lynch or addai barely makes a flex spot.

Hold tight, more injuries will come to teams with other qb's besides Manning, you will do better than Lynch/Addai ;-D

I would sit through the first week, maybe the first few weeks and there will most likely be a few qb's to get injured early on forcing them to go with back ups, so they will both be more valuable at that time. If you really need to trade now I guess I would go with Lynch over Addai. Indy also has Carter and Brown to split carries with and sure that Indy will try and get some amount of a running game going with Manning out for awhile now.

So one team has Sam Bradford as their starting QB with no backup...

His RBs are McFadden, Felix Jones, and DeAngelo Williams....so it would only help both of us, it would essdentially be backup for backup trade but we would both be starting them...Obviously I won't get McFadden but would Felix Jones or D.Williams be good enough? Which one is better?

Felix Jones > Lynch

Offer Big Ben for Jones, thats a pretty solid trade.
