Made a TE+RB trade...unbiased opinions

Postby Triplec223 » Fri Sep 16, 2011 8:44 am

Just completed this deal...took a gamble. Any opinions appreciated:

I get:
Owen Daniels
James Starks

He gets:
Vernon Davis
Brandon Jacobs

I've been desperately trying to rid myself of Jacobs because I also have Bradshaw. Here is what my roster looks like after the trade:

14-Team Redraft league
Standard scoring (10 rush/rec yards = 1 point...rush/rec TD = 6 points...25 pass yards = 1 point...pass TD = 4 points)
QB: Eli Manning
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Roddy White
RB: Ahmad Bradshaw
RB: James Starks
TE: Owen Daniels
W/R/T: Pierre Thomas
K: Jason Hanson
DEF: Pittsburgh

BN: Robert Meachem (WR)
BN: Fred Davis (TE)
BN: Delone Carter (RB)
BN: Chad Henne (QB)

Getting rid of Jacobs because you have Bradshaw sounds like flawed logic to me. Other than that, I do like this trade
because of the strong upside on the players you've obtained.

Carrying both Bradshaw and Jacobs seemed like a wasted roster spot to me. I certainly wasn't going to start both on the same day, especially since I also own Eli Manning. I figured if I could trade out Jacobs for a RB with similar or better value, I would be diversifying my roster a little better.

I really need a QB, but in a 14-team league, people are not willing to part with the upper echelon guys.
