Ingram for Wells?

Postby Whisper » Fri Sep 16, 2011 7:19 am

I know it might seem a bit premature based on one week of good (Wells) and poor (Ingram) performance, but Wells' owner has said he's very open to a trade, and I'm considering the following in a 12-team, 0.5 PPR league:

1-for-1 trade of my Ingram for his Wells

Am I crazy, or does this actually make some sense? I figure Ingram is going to improve, and he'll likely continue pulling the goal-line work. However, Wells seems to be a better pass-catching back, and he's the premier RB on his team (whereas Ingram will share snaps with Sproles and Thomas). Here are our rosters:

QB: Ryan
WR: Fitzgerald, Marshall, Boldin, Moore
RB: Forte, Ingram, Sproles, B. Jacobs, C. Williams, R. Williams
TE: Winslow, Keller
K: Janikowski
DEF: New Orleans

QB: Flacco, Henne
WR: Nicks, Britt, Crabtree, M. Williams (Sea)
RB: J. Charles, SJax, B. Wells, J. Stewart
TE: Daniels, Olsen
K: Crosby
DEF: Pitt, SF

He's could use some help in the WR department but is fairly stacked on RB (assuming Jackson returns soon from his injury), while I'm the opposite--I've got three startable receivers in Fitzy, Marshall and Boldin, and then have Moore has another WR3, while my RB stable beyond Forte is essentially a bunch of handcuffs.

Should I possibly consider targeting JStew? Not sure how I'd finagle that trade, but it's always an option.

Thanks for the help.

RB: McFadden, Matthews, K. Smith, R. Williams, M. Goodson

I don't know if he would accept this trade...unless he is the one proposing it..if he does..then I would do this trade.
I would not even think about J Stewart right now..Carolina's running is horrible right now.
