Trade Austin and Blount for Foster and Maclin?? WHIR

Postby Weasel_King » Fri Sep 23, 2011 11:16 pm

Just offered this trade in a 10-team league here's my current roster
QB: Matt Stafford
RB: Ray Rice
RB: LeGarette Blount
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Miles Austin
TE: Antonio Gates
K: Sebastian Janikowski
DST: Eagles

Bench:
QB: Matt Ryan
QB: Josh Freeman
RB: Felix Jones
RB: Joseph Addai
RB: Reggie Bush
WR: Steve Smith
DST: Bears
Note: Defense in this league score a decent amount of points

If I did this trade, I would have Rice and Foster while starting CJ and choose between Maclin and Smith on a weekly basis. My thoughts are my team would be pretty unstoppable IF Foster returns to form. Would you do this trade???

I think that would be a great trade for you, as long as Felix can stay healthy and put up #'s while Foster heals.

Thanks for the help

Thanks for the response on mine!

Im a Foster owner too, I believe he won’t be putting up elite numbers for at least another 2 weeks. If you’re confident in Felix then go for it. There is so much upside to making that trade.

I think it's a heck of a faith trade. You are basically counting on Foster to heal and on Felix to provide decent points. Risky, but like you said it could pay off big.

My initial gut feeling with Foster is that he will over extend himself in competing with Tate and keep re-aggravating his hamstring. I think they will end up splitting carries most of the year, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. If Schaub were airing it out more, I'd be worried. But he's not, so Houston is still confident in their ground game, which is a bonus.

I don't think Felix will end up splitting too many carries with Dallas's flavor of the week but there is still potential there.

I do it....but with a little concern. I do think foster and his coaches will be smart with him. I like blount too, but if I had a gun to my head. I'd make the trade. thanks for the help on mine
