Trading for a Top 5 WR

Postby mattyice » Sat Sep 17, 2011 3:06 pm

This is my first post on the forum, thanks for reading! :-D

12 team standard scoring, 0.5 PPR
We use QB, 3WR, 2RB, TE, and 2 flex positions so it is a deep league.
also a DEF and K but those are waiver wire adds for me every week.

Here is my team:

QB: Matthew Stafford
WR: Mike Wallace
WR: Wes Welker
WR: Lance Moore
RB: Adrian Peterson
RB: Felix Jones
TE: Aaron Hernandez
W/R: Tim Hightower
W/R: James Starks

BN: Brandon Jacobs
BN: Brandon Gibson
BN: Emmanuel Sanders
BN: Ben Tate
BN: Delone Carter

I received interest from another owner; he is willing to part with Andre Johnson or Roddy White and is interested in some kind of combination of Hightower, Jones, and/or Starks.

Here is his team:

QB: Tony Romo
WR: Andre Johnson
WR: Roddy White
WR: Percy Harvin
RB: LeGarrette Blount
RB: Joseph Addai
TE: Greg Olsen
W/R: Danny Woodhead
W/R: Devone Bess

BN: Knowshon Moreno
BN: Derrick Ward
BN: Pierre Thomas
BN: Daniel Thomas
BN: Josh Freeman
BN: Earnest Graham
BN: Lance Ball
(he has 2 IDP slots empty, which gives him 2 extra bench players for the moment)

My strength is clearly my RBs and he has garbage ones in my opinion. Should I try to pursue Johnson or White? If so, what should I offer and what is giving up too much? Should I try to get both by giving up AP and someone else? All questions I've considered. I don't see anyone worth trading for on his team other than those 2 and possibly Harvin. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

The value is definitely on your side. As mentioned, he spent for 2 rounds going wideout, where you went RB. Now you have the depth to do this.

Out of the 2, I would prefer AJ, but White would be a monster as well.

I would rank them as Hightower being the easiest to part with, then Starks and finally Felix. If you can get AJ for Hightower, your team would be insane.

Yea offer HIM Hightower for White or AJ. Need to toss in Starks if going for AJ.
