Trade Brady? For Who??? WHIR

Postby rdj3385 » Thu Sep 22, 2011 12:37 am

So with Charles down, I, as well as many other owners, am scrambling. I was really banking on Charles and Turner to get me a long ways. In looking at my roster, I have decided to take a huge gamble and let Brady go and ride with Cam Newton. Say what you will, but I am 0-2 and now Charles. I didnt draft well at all for depth. How the hell does one end up with two STL WR's?

My Roster:
QB - Brady, Newton
RB - Turner, Wells, Ingram, Spiller, Jacobs
WR - Bryant, Manningham, Decker, Sims-Walker, Amendola
TE - Graham

Am I completely insane to consider dealing Brady and riding with Newton? Assuming I do part ways with Brady, where do I target? Turner Wells is not bad, but I could use another solid back. At the same time, I could really use some help at wideout. Bryant and Manningham are both banged up to pile it on...how much is Brady worth at this point?

PS. You ever look at your roster and wonder what the hell happened? This does not look like my team, lol.

Leave a link and I will help in return...

Before I, or anyone, could tell you about possible trades you would first have to post teams that are needing a stud QB.

Basically show teams that do not have these QBs as starters:
Rodgers
Vick
Brees
Stafford
Rivers

Trading with them would not give you full return on Brady's value.

I think you should target a top 5 wr. Someone like A. Johnson, C. Johnson, Nicks, Jackson, etc

You could maybe get a lesser rb on the tail end of it. All depends on how much someone wants Brady.

please help...

what hippo said is correct.

generally speaking.. brady is worth just about anyone you can think of. i would try for something like brady/wells for WR1/RB2. maybe a jennings/gore .. something along those lines, depending on who's available on what teams (return to what hippo said).

also, why keep amendola? ppr league?

here's my thinking... if i've got matt ryan (or whoever you listed in those teams) i'm not going to give up a big name player for tom brady and then let matt ryan sit on the sidelines. i probably gave a decent round draft pick (6-9 or better) to get this qb and trading away one of my elite players to let him sit on the bench is silly. you're not wanting a qb in return, so you're handcuffing whoever you want to trade with. making them keep their original qb to sit on the bench and give up an elite player in the process. this doesn't scream do this trade. whatever the trade turns out to be.


maybe you should think about trading away cam newton?

or.. trading for another qb.. example: brady/bryant for romo/megatron

i dunno... just a thought

If possible, which I can understand why it may not be, would something like Brady/? for Fitzpatrick/Forte. I know that particular owner is big on Jimmy Graham. How could I work that?

Dude. I would shoot way higher than that of you were dealing Brady and Wells.

Wells is looking SOLID so far. Brady is a monster, singlehanded fantasy game difference maker.

Gore is NOT looking solid. He's getting tons of touches with VERY little to show for it. Crap o-line. Crap QB. IMO the only guy approaching Brady's value might be Ray Rice. If you are dealing Brady, it would have to be for Brady+Scrub for a Calvin or Andre + a solid solid dude like Turner, or another solid QB.

okay dude... it was a generalized statement, proceeded by me saying "generally speaking." i have no idea if jennings and gore are even on the same team. maybe you missed the part about having to see what teams own what players.

not trying to be a dick, but don't take it so literally.. it was just an example without seeing any teams.

and yes... wells has looked solid. no argument.
