Trade Britt and Ingram for Andre Johnson in PPR???...WHIR

Postby GeneralTsou » Wed Sep 14, 2011 9:50 pm

See roster below. 12-team PPR. We start 2RB, 2WR, and 1 RB/WR flex

I may be able to pull of a trade where I give up Kenny Britt and Mark Ingram to get Andre Johnson

I know Andre is better than Kenny Britt...but how much better? Is he enough of an upgrade over Britt to justify giving up a starting goal-line back for one of the best offenses in the league? I really think Kenny Britt will breakout this year. Ingram is a good bet for double-digit TDs but he currently doesn't start for me. I would rather start a WR in the flex in a PPR. I start McFadden and Best. Ingram is depth. Brandon Jacobs is my only other RB.

If you can get AJ for that you HAVE to do it!

Ummm...YES. This is a no-brainer in my opinion. Britt is gonna have a very god year - but AJ is the #1 or #2 WR in the league. Pull the trigger without a doubt.

I agree with both you but that will leave me with only 3 RB on my roster and there is NOTHING on the waiver wire

I'd do it because you have after McFadden, all your running backs are equal, you don't lose anything with Ingram. So basically you are trading Britt for AJ. AJ is definitely the better receiver, not miles better, but since Ingram is an extra piece for you, it is worth it.

This is just wrong on so many levels. Best is a legit starting FF RB. He should end up a top 15 RB. He is NOT in the dreaded RBBC situation that many others are. Ingram is the #1 RB in NO and is also a legit low end #1/high end #2 RB probably finishing somewhere around #15 for the season. Beyond those 2 the rest are pretty much garbage. Michael Bush is worhtless other than as a handcuff to McFadden and you'll never play him unless you lose your one true stud RB. Jacobs is the #2 RB in NYG behind the ESTABLISHED #1 Bradshaw. He'll likely be nothing more than a goal-line vulture and not worthy of starting every week.

You have only 3 legit RBs worthy of being on your starting lineup. Trading one of them leaves you DANGEROUSLY thin at RB and if Best gets hurt like last season then you are effed and the added points from replacing Britt with AJ isn't going to cover the points lost from moving donw from Best to Jacobs. You have legit reasons to be concerned over this and you are actually showing good insight and thinking beyond just the player values.

I would still try and work a deal to get AJ though. I'd try to rework the deal where is an RB and WR for an RB and WR. Try to get him to part with RB whom Ingram will be replacing in HIS lineup. That way you would probably have a better backup option than Jacobs and the trade is actually balanced in a 2 for 2 trade.

Hells yes.

At this point, Ingram looks only slightly better than B Jacobs and he has more competition in the backfield (P Thomas and D Sproles vs A Bradshaw).

A johnson is a S-T-U-D.

Andre is no doubt an upgrade over Britt in PPR but I think Britt can match Andre in yds and tds. Andre hasn't gotten double-digit TDs before. If I make the trade, I am relying on Jahvid Best to stay healthy and leaving me with Brandon Jacobs as my only other RB. I am torn

Definitely go for it, he will make you very happy. Ingram has yet to prove anything. He has the possiblity of being good, but don't count on it until it's proven. Plus he splits carries with P. Thomas, so not a super viable option for your lineup. I would definitely do it.

Help?
