Good trade or no?

Postby ken12580 » Tue Sep 13, 2011 1:52 pm

I just traded Jamaal Charles and Steve Smith (Car) for Tom Brady. Good trade or bad trade? My team got killed this week and I needed to make a change. Here's my team before the trade:

QB Eli Manning
WR Santonio Holmes
WR Mike Williams (TB)
RB Jamaal Charles
TE Owen Daniels
FLEX Steven Jackson
K Josh Brown
D Steelers
B Fred Jackson
B Steve Smith (Car)
B Davone Bess
B Cadillac Williams (Picked up right after SJax injury)
B Fred Davis
B Rex Grossman

The guy I traded with has Vick and Brady, and was willing to part ways with Brady.

PPR league, 100/150/200yd receiving/rushing bonus, 300/400/500yd passing bonus, pts for return yds

Thanks in advance! WHIR

Well I don't think that it is a bad trade for you becuase you have a top 3 qb now and I don't think that Charles or KC is going to be putting up the numbers that they did last year. Smith had a monster game and if he is back to form then this will hurt your depth and you are much thinner at rb now. I think if it were only Charles straight up for Brady this would have been a better deal for you. Good luck.

Can't say I love it, but you do what you gotta do. Brady is pure stud, of course, and as previously mentioned you can now trade Eli for something. I would recommend getting Deji Karim as well since MJD will probably get hurt at some point. Maybe you could pull something like Eli/Grossman and Santanio for a top WR? After week one I'm becoming much more concerned about my WRs than my RBs since it seems like every single team is passing 60-70% of the time. But now you got me thinking about moving Charles for a QB.... Good luck! ;-D
