Rodgers for White/Gates? WHIR

Postby Smitty114 » Tue Sep 20, 2011 5:30 pm

Hey guys, 12 team ppr (.25) redraft league. We play QB/RB/RB/WR/WR/TE/(W/R)/DEF. Qbs get 5 points per TD, every other position 6.

My team.

QB: Rodgers/Kolb
WR: Calvin/Mike Williams (TB)/Julio Jones/Eric Decker
RB: Foster/Sproles/DeAngelo/Karim/DeMarco Murray
TE: Dallas Clark
DEF: Philly

I know this is extremely risky trading Rodgers but if I added White/Gates my team would be ELITE at every position except QB, although Gates and White have started slowly. He also has Matt Ryan, should I try and get him also since I'm giving him Rodgers? Or should I just stand pat? He also has Daniel Thomas who I really like.

Thanks so much, Will help in return!!

I would do it, especially if he will give you Ryan. Ryan and Kolb would be a great pair to play match ups with and you are right that your team would be elite all the way around except for QB.

Do it!
QB- Vick
RBs- Forte, Sproles, Martin, K Smith, Ronnie Brown
WRs- Welker, D-Jax, Britt, Mike Williams, Lance Moore, LaFell
TE- Gonzo
K- Jason Hanson
Def- Buf D

I think that is a good, but speculative trade, and if he threw Ryan in too, that would be an offer you can't refuse.

Kolb is underrated I think especially when you look at his schedule. He will be solid enough to roll with considering the elite players you have on your team.

Ya try to swing Ryan into deal and push accept as fast as ya can. Both Roddy and Antontio will get going this season. Between the other two you can still put up decent points but you will be getting way more out of your other two positions...do it dude!

Just an Idea but with Foster having injury issues still you may want to ask for Roddy White/ Daniel Thomas and Matt Ryan - I know Gates has big upside but you are pretty good with Clark and I think DT will be unavailable very very soon!

maybe check waiver for Newton or Fitzpatrick if you can't get Ryan

am i the only one here don't like Kolb??
honestly, without Ryan, i just can't trust Kolb as my starting QB

and i won't worry too much about TE, since this year's TE is very deep, you can always find decent TE on waiver like Dustin Keller, Fred Davis.
i am not so sure if Gates is slow start or maybe not gonna start at all because Rivers have too much love for VJax

overall, i'll accept trade only if i have Newton/Fitzpatrick/Ryan, otherwise, i won't trade the best QB for 1WR that suppose to be top3 but still didn't show his value and TE position that can be filled easily through wavier wire

i guess i am the only one who is not excited about this trade. :-?

Davis is available at TE but I'm just not high on Clark. Newton and Fitz are gone as well. But, I agree that Kolb is not an every week starter so I'd probably need Ryan in return.

I'm kind of worried about Gates and his plantar fascitus though, that's the biggest concern. Anyone else?
