Trading for Andre or Calvin.....WHIR

Postby dpaine1988 » Wed Sep 14, 2011 7:01 pm

12 team, 1 PPR. Start 2 RB, 2 WR and 1 WR/RB

I was offered my choice of Calvin or Andre for Beanie Wells and one of my WR(my choice). I want to do this trade since every week I will have one great WR sitting on my bench(or Beanie).

My RBs: Ray Rice, McFadden, Beanie, Benson, Sproles
My WRs: V-Jax, Marshall, Welker, L. Moore

I could also probably get him to include Addia or Lynch in the trade along with Calvin.

His RBs: Addai, Lynch, Bush, Ward, B. Jacobs
His WR: Andre, Calvin, S. Rice, B. Edwards


Thoughts?

If you could get Andre for Wells/L. Moore, that'd be a steal... but its unlikely he'd accept, and even more unlikely that the trade wouldn't get vetoed by everyone else in the league.

So realistically, Wells/Marshall for Andre would totally be worth in. Sell high on Marshall.... I see him as the weakest of your 3 best WRs. He isn't likely to repeat the results of week 1 consistently with Henne as his QB. Considering your depth at RB, you could definitely afford to make that trade. V-Jax, Welker, and Andre at WR with Rice and McFadden at RB would be a killer WR lineup in a PPR league. How you ended up so stacked in a 12 team league is beyond me....

He won't budge off Welker/Wells for Andre/Addai....not sure how much that interests me though. I really want to hold onto Welker.

Welker+Wells for his AJ+Addai I'd jump all over that deal. Your getting the best overall player in that. Addai and Wells kinda cancel each other out and AJ is obviously a beast and a huge upgrade over Welker. Week 1 won't repeat itself.

I wouldn't do this at all.

During Bye weeks, you want Beanie, not Addai, or Sproles or Benson.

You already have 2 Great receivers in Marshall and Vincent Jackson. It seems weird to me that between the two of you Marshall, VJack, AJ, CJ are on only two teams, and you have two top quality running backs too. Is this a 6 team league?

Stay where you are, don't bite on this deal

Please help with mine: viewtopic.php?t=496527

If you make this trade it would have to be for Marshall as the WR you include. If you don't then two of your 5 starting WR/RBs will have a week 5 bye week (Marshall and Rice) and you'll have to start 2 guys off your bench.
Here is the deal I'd make:

Marshall + Wells for CJ + Addia/Lynch (doesn't matter)

You starting 5 WR/RB become Rice + McFadden + CJ + V-Jax + Welker with Benson, Addia/Lynch & Moore as your bye week fill-ins. I could live with those 3 as my bye-week fill-ins especially with Moore likely being fully healthy by the time byes start up and him being a very good option for Brees.

Well he refuses to budge off Welker/Wells for CJ or AJ/ Addai.

Bye weeks I can live with. They are all during non-divisional games(heavy-div record league). I can live with Lance Moore and Benson if I need to.

Just not sure if there is a big enough gap in PPR to go for Calvin or AJ from Welker.
