Vernon Davis replacement

Postby rasmusDoh » Wed Sep 21, 2011 3:46 am

Getting a little tired of V. Davis

Tried to get Gronkowski from waiver this week, but another guy got him in front of me.

The guy that picked him up, have both T. Gonzalez and Gronk now..

He also have both Cam Newton and Philip Rivers, and has been/is starting Newton.

So i'm considering trading Matt Ryan and V. Davis for Rivers and Gonzalez..

Is Gonzalez on the same level as Davis, and or is Davis better and have just underperformed (he has quite less points in my PPR league).


Also, since i'm not sure he'll go with this trade, i'm considering trading Davis and Ryan for just Rivers, and then pick up a guy like Dustin Keller from FA.
Would this still be a good trade for me?

I don't see him going for either deal. You're trying a straight up QB/TE for QB/TE where you're getting back the better of both positions, IMO.
The 2nd trade, is obviously a little better value for him, but why would he want a 3rd TE? I'm sure you'd be hoping it would get him to drop Gronkowski, but I just don't see the reason for him to take a downgrade at backup QB just to get a 3rd TE. Many teams only carry 1 anyway.

Davis has more ability than he's shown, but who knows if he'll be able to display it this year. You need to do one of the following:

a)stick with Davis and hope the offense remembers him.
b)pick up a 2nd TE to you can play until you get confidence in Davis again.
c)Concoct a trade that the opposing team will see some merit to.

Hmm, gotta agree. Both deals really suck for him..

Don't you agree though, that Rivers is better than Ryan (and also better than my current starter Schaub)?

He's pretty low on RBs (CJ, McCoy and Moreno), so i could maybe trade Ryan and on of my RBs (Rice, McFadden, Best, Gore, Wells) instead.

What would be a fair trade that makes sense for me then?
Ryan+Best for Rivers+Gonzalez? And then use Gonzalez instead of Davis?

I do agree that Rivers is better than Ryan, which is why the last trade proposal was so one-sided. The trade you just proposed is a bit better and definitely helps out with one of his needs, but I'd probably throw in Davis and take back their worst RB to give them more of a feeling of benefit. If you're not planning on using Davis anyway, it won't hurt you to do that.

Do you believe Gonzalez will be >= Davis' level for the rest (or most) of the season? Right now he's def over Davis, but do you think Davis could seriously outperform Gonzalez later on?

Gonzalez has a much better QB, but he's older - i think it's hard to decide!

Anyway, the other dude proposed a trade of Fitz+Marshall for Boldin+Gonzalez.. That's not gonna happen, but this do tell me though, that he's willing to trade Gonzalez!

Do you think this trade is good for me given Best's recent nice performances? Though, i haven't been playing him cause of my other stud RBs, so he's just been earning me bench points..
