>> Blockbuster Trade << need expert advice PLEASE

Postby ransomgracie » Tue Sep 13, 2011 6:03 pm

12 team, traditional scoring, yahoo league

qb,wr,wr,rb,rb,te,flex,k,def,3 bench only

current team:
Matt Schaub
Andre Johnson
Calvin Johnson
L Blount
Knowshon Moreno
Jason Witten
Beanie Wells
Tim Hightower
Kenny Britt
Santana Moss

here is my proposed trade: schaub, andre johnson, britt and blount for mendenhall, tony romo, percy harvin, and d mcfadden

On paper it looks good for me, real good, because im pretty weak with my backs.. BUT i'd be losing the schaub/johnson connection, foster is questionable so better stats for my two texans, britt could have a really really good year with his new qb. without britt and johnson i would then be really weak with my wr, but could maybe acquire a good one using wells, moreno, or hightower.

HELP PLEASE !

Basically you are going from a starting lineup of

QB- Schaub
WR- Andre
WR- Calvin
RB- Hightower
RB- Wells
TE- Witten
WR/RB- Blount/Moreno

to

QB- Romo
WR- Calvin
WR- Harvin/Moss
RB- Mendenhall
RB- McFadden
TE- Witten
WR/RB- Hightower/Wells

You're downgrading at WR2, but you're upgrading at QB, both RB positions, and WR/RB

Furthermore you're getting 2 top 10 RBs and a top 7 QB while giving up admittedly a top 5 WR and a top 15-20ish WR, and a top 12 QB.

To me it's a no-brainer unless there are scoring system considerations I'm not aware of.

So the trade went through... but a modified version. He got Schaub, Blount, and Britt. I got Romocop, Mendenhall and Harvin..

starting lineup now looks like:

Romo
Megatron
Optimus (andre johnson)
Mendenhall
Hightower
Witten
Moreno

bench:
Beanie
P Harvin
Santana Moss (soon to be dropped for Cam Newton, hopefully..)


i win

@trevizzle: I pulled the trigger on a modified version of that trade and sent britt, schaub and blount for mendehnall, romo, and harvin! starting lineup is now: romo; megatron; andre johnson; mendenhall; hightower; witten; moreno; bench: wells; harvin; santana


Guys, got any advice on a trade that would send either tim hightower or beanie wells or moreno for jamaal charles ...? which should i send, please prioritize all three with 3 being most important to keep and number 1 being first i should send
