Traded away Hightower

Postby markscott273 » Tue Sep 20, 2011 8:32 am

So I traded hightower and Devery Henderson for Desean Jackson and Mark Ingram.

I think Roy Helu will have more points than Hightower so I wanted to trade Hightower while he's hot.

Did I help or hurt my team? (12-team non-ppr, ESPN standard scoring, 1QB 2RB 2WR 1WR/RB 1TE 1K 1DST)

My team:
QB: Philip Rivers, Matt Ryan
RB: Ray Rice, Tim Hightower, Daniel Thomas, Ronnie Brown, Delone Carter, Woodhead
WR: Dez Bryant, Percy Harvin, Devery Henderson, Marques Colston, Nate Burleson
TE: Jimmy Graham
K: Josh Brown
D/ST: Eagles

His team:
QB: Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb
RB: Robert Turner, Mark Ingram, Shawn Greene, CJ Spiller, Knowshon Moreno
WR: Desean Jackson, Steve Smith (CAR), Hester, Mike Williams (SEA)
TE: Vernon Davis, Scott Chandler
K: Mason Crosby
DST: Vikings

I like the trade. Big increase in talent at WR for moderate decrease with lots of upside at RB. Although, I still don't love your RB situation.

I don't like my RB situation either. I might try to package Matt Ryan with Harvin or somebody to get another top 10 RB. My problem is that no one needs a QB right now.

Who has Romo and/or Vick. There's enough injury question there to give it a shot.

the guy who has vick I did the trade with. I offered him Ryan but he said no. Plus he really doesn't have any good RBs to give up. (Turner, Greene, Moreno, Spiller and hightower [who I just traded to him])

The guy who has Romo has Kolb on the Bench and traded Turner and Marshall to get Newton and Gore. I could try to get Gore, Mendenhall or Tolbert from him. Any ideas?

I doubt you could get Gore for Harvin & Ryan, maybe target mendenhall. But it depends on what his WR needs are. If i were him I would be content with Kolb at backup and wouldn't be too interested in Ryan. Not sure you have much leverage.

He has Welker, Hines Ward and jacoby jones for his WR (he traded away Brandon Marshall)

Do you think I can afford to let go of harvin? My other WRs would be Dez Bryant, Desean Jackson, Nate Burleson and Marques Colston.

The guy will only get rid of Darren Sproles. He offered Sproles for Harvin.

Trade Harvin for Sproles

Postby markscott273 » Tue Sep 20, 2011 11:30 am

So the guy came back and offered me his Sproles for Harvin.

I would like Sproles but Harvin faces the Chiefs in a couple of weeks. I might hold off. But my RB is kind of weak.

I decided I'm going to keep Harvin. Why give away Harvin for Sproles when I already have Ingram and Graham (and colston). and I'm not even a Saints fan.
