Cam Newton/D Bowe for Big Ben/Larry Fitzgerald (Keeper)

Postby twinkypoop » Thu Sep 15, 2011 8:50 pm

10 Team Keeper League, standard scoring, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex
I had an owner with Big Ben & Sam Bradford propose a trade for Cam Newton, and I wanted to upgrade my #1 Receiver in my roster.

My roster is:
QB: Brees / Newton
RB: McKoy, S Jackson, C Benson, F Jones, M Ingram, B Tate
WR: D Bowe, Manningham, AJ Green, L Moore

After some back and forth, we agreed on the deal above, where i get Fitz & Big Ben for Cam & Bowe. (his top 2 receivers were Fitz & Maclin0

I wasn't a huge fan of Bowe, and even in a keeper league where we keep 3 year to year, i didn't see keeping Cam over Brees, McKoy, and now Fitz.

How did I do??
QB- Stafford
RB- J Charles, R Bush, G Bernard, S Jax, B Tate, Snelling
WR- L Fitz, Amendola, Gordon, Gordon, Blackmon, Broyles, Marlon Brown
TE- J Thomas, Cook
K- Walsh
DEF- Rams

I would do this trade in a heart beat. Cam had a great game..but it was against Arizona..i doubt he will put up the same numbers this year...Fitz is 100x better than Bowe. You are getting a better deal in this..plus..Big Ben plays better near the 2nd half of the season

Thanks for the input!
I did accept the trade, and aside from the fact that Brees & Big Ben have the same bye week, Fitz was an obvious upgrade over Bowe.

Are folks high on Newton in terms of Keeper value??
