I'm tired of always getting stuck with Big Ben in at least one of my leagues every year. Trade time.
I'm contemplating sending him, Peyton Hillis and Brandon Marshall for Rivers, Blount, and Burleson. I have decent depth at RB with AD, Tate, Ryan Mathews and McGahee but not sure how long these guys will be studs. Should I submit the trade? OR any revisions you would recommend?
obviously, big upgrade on QB RB is debatable, most likely Hillis is better options but seeing Blount's week2 performance, and you also have Tate that can help your early week matchup before Foster recover.
overall, upgrade from QB is bigger than downgrade on your WR pretty close trade. A little better on your end because Rivers > Marshall
QB: Roethlisberger RB: Peterson, Hillis, Tate, Mathews, McGahee WR: V. Jackson, Marshall, E. Sanders, Denarius Moore TE: Owen Daniels D/ST: Giants K: Hanson
I think you're definitely solid enough at RB to do this. Your taking a significant hit at WR so I'd definitely peruse the WW in your league in hopes for a good p/U. The upgrade at QB is too huge to ignore though. I think you make this trade.
I like the upgrade at QB and I'm netural at RB but you will have a really weak WR group. Chargers bye week is looking like a forfeit week i guess. You are probably selling Ben very low but Rivers is a solid buy if he is available at this price
