Michael Turner, VJax for Ray Rice, Maclin... Fair? WHIR

Postby scalqq » Wed Sep 21, 2011 11:01 am

Thinking up a trade offer today... is this a fair trade? I could be losing my mind...

I'd be sending over...
-Vincent Jackson
-Michael Turner

I receive...
-Ray Rice
-Jeremy Maclin

Anyway, here are the teams to give better perspective. I'm pretty heavy on WR (whereas the other team is weak on WR), and I'm trying to sell high on Michael Turner. I need an upgrade in RB. Standard scoring league, no PPR.

My Team:

QB 1 - Tom Brady
RB 1 - Michael Turner
RB 2 - Fred Jackson
WR 1 - Miles Austin
WR 2 - Vincent Jackson
W/R - Kenny Britt
TE - Jimmy Graham
BN - Percy Harvin
BN - Willis McGahee
BN - Michael Bush
BN - Chad Henne
BN - Jacoby Ford

Other Team:

QB 1 - Matthew Stafford
RB 1 - Ray Rice
RB 2 - Frank Gore
WR 1 - Calvin Johnson
WR 2 - Jeremy Maclin
W/R - LeGarrette Blount
TE - Owen Daniels
BN - Ben Roethlisberger
BN - Ryan Matthews
BN - Plaxico Burress
BN - James Starks
BN - Antonio Brown

I think it's a fairly even trade. I'd probably do it anyways, but that's because I really think R. Rice is in for an absolutely phenomenal season.

I kinda think it's a close one, Turner burner has been good so far but some lucky runs. I am also rather high on Vjax, but Maclin looks good too. Also Miles Austin is out for 2-3 weeks? IDK its a close one but I would probably do it. That would leave you with Kenny Britt/Harvin/Maclin. and I am not high on you're RB2 Jackson. It's a fair trade and I would probably do it. help with mine.

The alternative could be this:

Michael Turner
VJax
Fred Jackson

for...

Ray Rice
Maclin
Ryan Mathews

Not sure how that trade would balance out... seems fair to me on both sides. I could be wrong though.

I think it's a fair trade. I think Rice is probably the best player in the deal so I'd give a slight edge to going for it, but it's close. If you like the other side better then stay put, but I'd say get Rice.

I was referring to the original trade, I honestly missed the second option. I think for the second trade, at the moment I'm still not sold on Mathews, though he does look better then last season. I think I'd still rather have Jackson then Mathews.

Thanks for help with mine. I like the idea of a different trade, not sure I can make a trade work getting back two RBs, but I can try. I just got Ryan in a trade to try to flip him so I could include him in the deal.

I agree with Halo girl. I think the first trade is better. I think Fred Jackson is > Ryan Matthews at the moment and wouldn't propose that one. Stick with the 2 or 2 and try to get ray rice.

I think you can take the first trade. Its close, but because you're strong at WR and it helps your RB spot I think its a good move for you.

Thanks for the help with mine

YES do it. RICE is A BEAST. Maclin and VJax will have similar #"s.

The first trade looks solid to me, although it's a close one. Rice is a good upgrade for you at RB and you've still got a solid WR corp even if you swap VJax for Maclin. I would be a little concerned given Austin's injury but Britt and Maclin are still a solid play at WR given the upgrade of Rice over Turner.

Mind taking a look at my situation? http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=498215
