Postby Conrax » Fri Sep 09, 2011 5:09 pm

This is for a 16 team, H2H Points, 4 Keeper (1 must be an IDP).

PPR = .5
Passing TDs = 4
all other = 6

Before I go into actual trade this, has sent like at least 10 trade proposal trying to get either Vincent Jackson or Andre Johnson and I keep telling him to buzz off because the offers were not that great. Well here he comes again, I feel like telling him to buzz off again but I'm not feeling well so I may not looking at things properly which is why I want opinions. So should I make this trade or tell him to buzz off again. Again I will WHIR just leave a link.

Actual Trade:
Send Vincent Jackson, SD WR from WR to Buccaneers
Receive Sidney Rice, Sea WR from Buccaneers to Bench
Receive BenJarvus Green-Ellis, NE RB from Buccaneers to Bench

Roster (Note this roster was drafted before the lockout was over, if I could do it over the roster would be completely different):

QB Matthew Stafford, Det QB
RB Jonathan Stewart, Car RB

TE Owen Daniels, Hou TE
DT Ahtyba Rubin, Cle DT

I would not do this trade. VJax is a top 10 WR who will put up fantastic numbers with Rivers. Sidney Rice however does not have a QB although he is talented. I only see him as a average WR3 at best. I would not want a NE player except Welker on my team because they spread the ball around quite a bit. I also think Stephan Ridley will take away some touches from him. good luck!
Thanks Franchise Fan for the sig!

that trade does almost nothing for your team i dont value sidney rice too high with tavaris jackson at the helm. You will see seattle in the running for Luck this year or a high draft pick, with a better qb its a good team. Mixed on the law firm he had good numbers last year but pats throw first and run out the clock. You can get much more for vincent jackson

Not a good trade. Elite WRs are pretty valuable in a deep league. I'd hold onto VJ. If he wants him so bad, counter with a trade thats really nicely in your favor. Maybe for a solid 2nd tier WR and a solid back.

agree with the consensus.... pass.

You can counter his awful proposal with awful proposals of your own... either he becomes reasonable with his trade offers or he gets mad and stops sending them. Either way, you win.
