Tricky trade decision, please help, whir 100%

Postby tomas21 » Tue Sep 20, 2011 10:39 am

I am in a 12 team ppr league with 6 points for passing TDs. We start 2 RBs, 2 WRs and a flex.

I was offered Stafford, Daniel Thomas and Amendola for my Roethlisberger, Brandon Jacobs and Colston

My team:

Big Ben, Eli
Foster, Gore, Jacobs, Woodhead, Tate
Britt, Vincent Jackson, Colston, Jerome Simpson
Witten, Fred Davis
Jets

I can't decide what to do. I am 2-0, and will be even stronger once Colston comes back, but Ben has been a pretty weak QB in this league.

I'd stay put man. I love Staffords potential this year, I think he could throw 30-35 TDs. But, I think you are loosing too much on the rest of the trade to be worth it. Ben's schedule the coming weeks is cake (IND, HOU, TEN, JAC, ARI) so I think he will step up his production. I'd stay put and wait for Colston to return.

Help with mine please? http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=497830

I actually like the trade for you. I think Stafford is an upgrade over Ben. And Thomas as a 3rd RB is also an upgrade.

Obviously losing Colston isn't ideal, but there's no telling how quickly he's going to come back from the injury or how productive he's going to be if he does play. I'd make the deal.

Help please

Increase value at QB
Decrease value at RB (but good upside)
Decrease value at WR a bit.

Not sure I would do it. Too many questions surrounding how involved Thomas will actually be in Miami with Reggie Bush in the picture. I think you would be giving up too much in Colston. Stafford is good, arguably better than Big Ben. He's just injury prone and not sure I would take the risk.

wow, it is a touch decision - I think Stafford is definitely on his way up. The injuries over the past few years would scare me a bit but Eli I think will put up decent numbers. I guess I would do it but just slightly.

Please help me
