Jones for Marshall WHIR

Postby monkiesatemybaby » Sat Sep 10, 2011 6:04 pm

NFL standard scoring + 1PPR; 8 man deep rosters; here's mine

QB (start2) Freeman*, Kolb*, Orton
RB (2) Charles*, Turner*, Felix Jones*, Fred Jackson*, Hightower*, Beanie, Pierre Thomas, BJacobs
WR (3) Andre Johnson*, Stevie Johnson*, Welker*, Malcom Floyd, Meachem, Antonio Brown
TE Winslow
also start 2x WR/RB and 1x W/R/TE
...so all starred names are starters. Dude is dyin for a RB2, proposing all types of crazy trades. But...I did go RB heavy for a reason. Marshal could slide into a WR or flex spot and should be a ppr beast. Should i take this one? The only other players he has I might be interested in are Gates, Fitzgerald, and DeSean Jackson

I really dont see Brandon Marshall as a big upgrade over Welker or Johnson if at all....I think you could get a better trade for Jones than Marshall...I would couple Jones with Welker or Johnson for a better WR in a 2 for 1 trade. I would stay put on this one.

I would. you're incredibly deep at RB and you're giving up a bench spot to improve a starter

Which starter is he improving on? Plus he has Meachem who stands be the beneficiary of Colson's injury in New Orleans.

New proposal : my Jones and Welker for his DeSean Jackson and Ryan Grant. That would give me Charles and Turner at RB, Andre, DJax and Stevie at WR, and FredJax, Hightower, Beanie, PT, Meachem, Floyd or Brown for the 3 flexes. Grant might even be useful down the road, or maybe not...

This guy wants Felix Jones....I myself think he is going to have a breakout year also....I am not crazy about Ryan Grant after watching thursday nights game....it seems that Starks is going to take over the primary back role in Green Bay...so the trade becomes....Desean Jackson for Felix Jones and Wes Welker.....I still think he is getting the better of it but you are improving and the trade is getting closer....can you post his roster?

Marshall > Johnson.

This is hardly even debatable. Marshall is in a much improved Miami offence and (while it's only preseason) Henne has actually looked decent.

I do like the offer of F Jones + Welker for DJax though.

Better yet offer him Jones + Winslow for Gates.

I sincerely doubt he'd go for that but it's worth a shot

Hardly debatable? Check out last years stats....who had more fantasy points last year....Marshall or Stevie Johnson? (Johnson had better stats than Welker also) Marshall was more the product of Denver's pass friendly offense....if you need further evidence....see Brandon Lloyds stats from last year in which he replaced Marshall as Denver's #1 WR. The fact is that Brandon Marshall in Miami isnt a night and day improvement , if at all over Welker or Stevie Johnson. So why not make a better trade using Felix Jones than just a minimal improvement trade.
