F. Jones for D. Jax?

Postby gellosee » Tue Sep 20, 2011 10:54 am

I lost Charles and need to make a move, do you think trading Desean Jackson for Felix Jones is fair?

Fair, yes, but I don't know if I really want to deal for a banged up Felix right now until we know his prognosis. I haven't really dug into injury situations for the coming week, so consider me out of the loop there, but separated shoulder doesn't sound like a 0-1 week injury recovery to me. I am no Jackson lover, and after I see the rest of your roster (please post if/when you get a chance), I might still advise you to pull the trigger. It's just that your question, in a vacuum, causes too many questions to speak emphatically.

If you can fill us in with your roster, league scoring settings and roster requirements, I'll certainly chip in my opinion, though ;-D

Thanks for the help, here is my roster, standard yahoo league.

QB Tony Romo
QB Matthew Stafford
RB Jamaal Charles
RB Brandon Jacobs
RB Thomas Jones
RB Darren McFadden
RB Cedric Benson
TE Jermichael Finley
WR Marques Colston
WR A.J. Green
WR Nate Burleson
WR Deion Branch
WR Reggie Wayne
WR DeSean Jackson

He was offering either Hightower or Jones, thought Jones was the better of the two to go for as the latest report on Jones is a shoulder sprain and he should play this week.

I'd rather have jones than Hightower, and it isn't even close. As for the WR you're giving up, is there a chance the guy would take Wayne? I'd rather give him up than DJack at this point. I think you're really risky on the WR front and are actually OK at RB if you only have to start two as McFadden and Benson are solid starters and Jacobs and Jones will be usable backups, so I think dealing for Jones is only a good idea if he's for sure going to play this week and his long-term prognosis is OK, and would be ideal if you could send Wayne or a combination of Burleson and Thomas Jones or something similar ...

Anyone else? I'm still leaning on pulling the trigger on this for a lack of any other options.
