Trading Calvin Johnson

Postby KeithJ » Wed Sep 28, 2011 10:32 am

Here's my team, no PPR, standard scoring:

Starters
QB - Michael Vick
RB - Darren McFadden
RB - DeAngelo Williams
WR - Calvin Johnson
WR - Reggie Wayne
FLEX - Nate Washington
TE - Greg Olsen
DEF - Minnesota
K - Jay Feely

Bench
WR - Deion Branch
WR - Hines Ward
RB - Marion Barber
RB - Earnest Graham
QB - Colt McCoy
K - Adam Vinatieri
DEF - San Francisco

I am hurting very bad at RB with DeAngelo doing nothing for me so I'm shopping Calvin Johnson.

I offered him straight up for Ray Rice and I'm waiting to hear from the owner.

I've also been offered Tim Hightower + Brandon Lloyd for him. This team also has:

RUNNING BACKS
Tim Hightower, Wsh RB
Ahmad Bradshaw, NYG RB
Felix Jones, Dal RB
Pierre Thomas, NO RB
Deji Karim, Jac RB
Javon Ringer, Ten RB

RECEIVERS
Brandon Lloyd, Den WR
Brandon Marshall, Mia WR
Victor Cruz, NYG WR
Antonio Brown, Pit WR

Is there any better (and reasonable) counter-offer I could make to this team? Hightower + Lloyd isn't quite enough for him is it?

Anyone?

All my other offers have been shot down for Calvin and this guy seems to be the only one willing to deal.

I don't really like it. I think it weakens your WR corp significantly and doesn't upgrade your RB THAT much. I don't like his team at all in a way that I'd be willing to give up Calvin.

I take it you've gone after the owners of Mendenhall and Chris Johnson with Calvin?

I wouldn't move Calvin, he is a beast. 6 TD's already in 3 games, he could realistically end up with 20+. I have him in all my pools and have designated him as untouchable. The scary thing is he's not even playing at 100% health.

Megatron is almost untradable.

Ray Rice is worth it, that other trade is laughable.

Definitely don't trade Calvin. He's a fantasy stud. Try trading Wayne for a RB if anything.

Please help with mine!

I'd pass on that.


I'm not sold on Lloyd/Denver and I wouldn't be surprised to see Helu poaching from Hightower later on down the line.

Thanks for the replies. What about Fred Jackson + Sydney Rice for Megatron? Rice seems to be back (although it's only been one week) and Jackson is having a great year so far.

Thats not enough IMO. Its close but not enough. If you can get him to upgrade on the S Rice part of it then maybe. What happened with the Calvin for R Rice deal?
