Jermichael Finley trade

Postby tuffgong71 » Thu Sep 29, 2011 3:12 pm

I have two of the best TE's in Fantasy (Gronkowski and Jermichael Finley). Obviously, I can only use one at a time so I have been shopping them (mostly Finley). My team is in good shape so I am not really desperate, I could wait. Here are the details:

Small 8 team league, standard ESPN scoring. My team:

Vick and Fitzpatrick at QB

McFadden
Rice
Hightower
Sproles

Nicks
S. Smith (Carolina)
D. Bowe
D. Bryant
M. Williams (TB)

Gronkowski and J. Finley at TE

My team is loaded but with only 8 teams, they are all loaded. Anyway, I shopped both Tight Ends around and the only real offer is Jermichael Finley for Beanie Wells. I was hoping for someone who would be a regular starter because the guy on the other end of the trade will be getting a definite starter. Should I pull the trigger and pick up a back up TE from free agency (oh yeah, the best guys still left at TE FA are: Scott Chandler, Fred Davis, Greg Olsen) or keep both great Tight Ends until something better comes up? Thanks in advance!

I'm not a big Beanie fan and you're pretty set w/ DMC & Rice. Your WR seem to be weaker, especially for an 8 team league. Try and flip Finley for an elite WR if you can (and hold off on Beanie).

No way.
I'm not trading one of the elite TEs for a RB that I can't imagine ever starting over the guys on my bench.
I agree with others that you need WR's not backup RBs

This for me too. Gotta get a straight up horse if you are going to trade Finley. Someone wants him, they just dont want you to know they want him. Beanie lol. Tell those guys to step up and play ball if they want your attention.
