Pierre Thomas for Cadillac? WHIR with real thought!

Postby sweettortilla » Tue Sep 13, 2011 1:23 pm

I’m in an ESPN 12-team PPR league.

With the Steven Jackson injury (SJax), I’m losing a little bit of production. Here is my roster:

QB – Ryan
RB – Ray Rice
RB – Sjax
RB/WR – Bush
WR – Reggie Wayne
WR – Steve Johnson
TE – Aaron Hernandez
Def – Green Bay
K – Kasay
BENCH
RB – Pierre Thomas
RB – Ricky Williams
WR – Santana Moss
WR – Amendola
WR – Mike Williams (Seattle)
TE – Kendricks

My question:

Should I trade Pierre Thomas for Cadillac Williams? Caddy’s owner has strong RB, probably won’t use him and knows he’s likely only a temp fill-in for SJax. I would like this trade to fill in these next few weeks and handcuff SJax in case there is a long-term problem (with his age, mileage and history, there could be.)

Appreciate any thoughts you have! WHIR with some real thought.

Cadillac looked good, and the good news is Bradford is ok. He'll produce some good numbers. I just don't like the Saints trio of Ingram, Thomas, and Sproles in terms of fantasy production. Trade away!

Yeah, in your situation that's a good trade. I wouldn't normally love giving up PT for Caddy but since it's insurance for you it's very worth it. Good luck! ;-D

Do the trade this way you have the handcuff and I am not high on Thomas because of injury history and the fact that he has to contend with Ingram who seems to get most of the rushing attempts and Sporles who is catching passes out of the backfield.

Definitely make this trade. Cadillac will give you very solid numbers while Steven Jackson is out.

Yeah, I would absolutely do this deal. Caddy looked really good, indeed, and I'd rather have SJax's handcuff and lock down the StL backfield at this point then have one of the 3-4 backfield mouths of the Saints. As long as Ingram and/or Sproles are still in the mix, PT isn't really worth much IMO, but if you have Caddy/SJax, there's a good chance you'll have a healthy starter in a pretty good offense (and since it's the NFC West, you might well have a tasty matchup, too) ;-D
