Vincent Jackson for Tim Hightower and Plaxico Burress

Postby killers0820 » Wed Sep 14, 2011 11:59 pm

Should I trade away Vincent Jackson for Tim Hightower and Plaxico Burress?

I play in a 2 RB, 1 WR/RB, 2 WR league on ESPN. My current line-up is:
RB1: Adrian Peterson
RB2: Jonathon Stewart
RB/WR: Jordy Nelson
WR1: Vincent Jackson
WR2: Kenny Britt

I'd really like to upgrade the RB2 spot since Jonathon Stewart is looking pretty weak. But, is the drop from Jackson to Burress worth the upgrade from Stewart to Hightower?
Also, if I could get Felix Jones instead of Tim Hightower, should I do that? (I would still get Plaxico, too)

Hi there and welcome to the Cafe!

I don't think I'd risk this for Hightower, but if you can get Felix it's not a bad deal for you as I think it's a pretty huge step forward at RB and you have a usable WR. You're pretty thin at WR and RB, so it's kind of a gut call, but usable WRs with upside are a heckuva lot easier to find than RBs, so I'd roll with Felix and Plax if you can swing it. What's the rest of your roster look like?

QB: Phillip Rivers
TE: Owen Daniels
D/St: Ravens
K: Rob Bironas

Bench:
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick
QB Mark Sanchez
QB Matt Hasselbeck
RB Willis McGahee
RB Jason Snelling
RB Donald Brown
WR Pierre Garcon

My bench is really messed up because it was an auto draft. Some of the prominent free agents are:
WR Eddie Royal
WR Brandon Gibson
WR Jason Hill
RB Dexter McCluster
RB Thomas Jones
TE Vinsanthe Shiancoe
K Phil Dawson
K Rian Lindell
K Robbie Gould
K Lawrence Tynes

Should I pursue any of these free agents?
