Jennings for Benson and Olsen - WHIR

Postby Halo Girl » Wed Sep 21, 2011 11:30 am

So I lost Charles and now I'm looking to make a deal for a RB. A friend in my league offered to trade with me and offered me Benson and G.Olsen for Jennings. My friend wants a receiver and has mentioned before about wanting a different QB and they also have Rice, Gore, McFadden and F.Jackson at RB. I feel like I could either do better here/shouldn't be giving up as much at WR for this deal. What should I do? Accept or counter?

The WW doesn't have much: Felix Jones, McGahee, J.Stewart, Ingram, Jacobs, Addai, Spiller, D. Thomas

I think you're giving up too much in that original trade as well. How about this alternative?

Jennings and Beanie Wells for McFadden and Benson

Just my thoughts at a first glance at your situation. Also, back to my thread, were you referring to the alternative trade option or the trade option from my first post? viewtopic.php?t=498187

Ive talked to this person and they seem to only be willing to trade Benson, Gore or Jackson. I don't think I can offer Jennings for any one of these unless I'm getting some else back, which I'm not sure is possible.

You're giving up too much. Jennings straight up for Mcfadden or gore is a good trade IMO.

Would White be a better trade option then Jennings? Either White or Jennings for Gore? Would that be a good deal? Should I go for Gore and would White or Jennings be better to hang on to?

In a smallish league with only 8 teams, you could definitely take a flier on some of those waiver wire pickups. I'd grab D.Thomas or maybe Addai and drop Flacco. You only need to start one QB, there's no reason to carry 3 on your team. You'll be starting Brees every game anyhow. I also

I think Gore is a great target right now. His value is low but he's had tough matchups. he'll be better in the future (barring injury, of course). If you give up Jennings or White for him, you'll need a solid +1. Maybe add David Nelson while his value is sky high and get another solid WR back.

I would keep Jennings over White, personally. And I would trade White for Mcfadden over Gore.
