Trade Forte for Stafford even tho I just lost J Charles??

Postby patsavestheday » Thu Sep 22, 2011 12:59 pm

Trade offered to me: Stafford/Tolbert for Forte/Bradford

Here are the details:

So this is a league I joined b/c they needed someone to fill in for a MIA owner, so I didn't draft (it was auto). Oh, and lucky me I had J Charles in this league (who has since been dropped). Here is the lineup:

QB Josh Freeman, TB QB Draft
RB Matt Forte, Chi RB Draft
RB/WR Ben Tate, Hou RB P Free Agency
WR Greg Jennings, GB WR Draft
WR Dexter McCluster, KC WR, RB Free Agency
TE Antonio Gates, SD TE Q Draft
DP Julius Peppers, Chi DE Draft
DP Charles Johnson, Car DE Draft
D/ST Cowboys D/ST D/ST Free Agency
K Jason Hanson, Det K Free Agency
Bench Marques Colston*, NO WR O Draft
Bench BenJarvus Green-Ellis, NE RB Draft
Bench Mario Manningham, NYG WR Q Draft
Bench Sidney Rice, Sea WR Q Draft
Bench Joseph Addai, Ind RB Draft
Bench Malcom Floyd, SD WR Q Draft
Bench Jordy Nelson, GB WR Draft
Bench Sam Bradford, StL QB

Standard scoring 12 team league. So Passing TBs are 4 points. Now here is the trade.

The Stafford owner has offered me Stafford/Tolbert for Forte/Bradford. He has Brees as well.

Stafford is VERY tempting, but do I trade Forte after just losing Charles?? What do you think. This is a one RB league, with a RB/WR flex. But IDK.

His lineup is as follows:

QB Drew Brees, NO QB Draft
RB Ahmad Bradshaw, NYG RB Draft
RB/WR David Nelson, Buf WR Free Agency
WR Roddy White, Atl WR Q Draft
WR Santonio Holmes, NYJ WR Q Draft
TE Jimmy Graham, NO TE Draft
DP Jerod Mayo, NE LB Q Draft
DP D'Qwell Jackson, Cle LB Free Agency
D/ST Titans D/ST D/ST Free Agency
K Nick Folk, NYJ K Draft
Bench Dez Bryant, Dal WR Q Draft
Bench Felix Jones, Dal RB Q Draft
Bench Stephen Tulloch, Det LB Draft
Bench Jared Allen, Min DE Q Draft
Bench Matthew Stafford, Det QB Draft
Bench Mike Tolbert, SD RB Q Draft
Bench Greg Olsen, Car TE Draft
Bench Lions D/ST D/ST

(yeah, this is an IDP league, which I DONT like really...too much randomness).

Any advice would be MUCH appreciated ;-D WHIR

Nope. Too big of a downgrade at RB. You move from a top 10 RB to a mid 20s RB for the flip improvement in QB. If you were scoring passing TDs at 6, I would consider it, but since they're at 4, no chance.

I wouldn't give up Forte for anyone right about now! Chicago's offense is Forte.. Try packaging 2 of your players like Green-Ellis and Nelson for a QB!

Please help!

Tate as FA?? i am surprised.
anyway, short answer is no, don't do the trade.
i don't believe Stafford will keep 4TD every game and Freeman is not great but acceptable QB at least

to make this trade beneficial you need Stafford keep his monster performance through out the season and also hope BJGE give you at least a TD every game, unlike Forte who is good to begin with and now is working hard so he can get a new contract.

i won't do the trade

i rather pick up Fiztpatrick/Newton/Grossman and hope they produce
