Good Trade?

Postby erbu18 » Thu Sep 29, 2011 3:10 pm


I don't know if I should pull the trigger...PLEASE HELP!!

I'm in a non-keeper, PPR league.

Should I Make this deal?

I give up...
- Matt Forte (My other RBs: Ray Rice & McCluster) - we have 2 starting RBs
- Dez Bryant (My other WRs: Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, Anquan Boldin) - we have 3 starting WRs
- JerMichael Finley (My other TE: Rob Gronkowski) - we have 1 starting TE

I get...
- Ahmad Bradshaw
- Andre Johnson
- Antonio Gates

I think it's worth the risk. I give up a solid RB for a top WR. I give up an injury-prone WR for a solid RB. I swap backup TE.

Tough call here, but I think I would do it. You get the best player in the deal in AJ. You're drop off from Forte to Bradshaw is much less than your upgrade to AJ at WR IMO. Obviously you're giving away your nice TE depth, but having CJ and AJ would be enough for me.

I would do this. You lose a little on the Forte for Bradshaw part. So you would be starting Rice/Bradshaw, not bad. Then you win big with Andre over Dez. You would be starting Calvin/Andre, VERY good, probably the best combo in the league really. Then you get Gates but give up Finley which sucks but you still have Gronk and if you are going to give up Finley and get a TE in return it would probably be Gates that you would want. I say yes to this trade.
