Smart Trading McCoy and Schaub?

Postby RexRules » Thu Sep 29, 2011 8:22 pm

Hope I made the right call here.

I got
Vick & Jones-Drew
Gave up
L.McCoy & Schaub

I don't see the touchdown rate keeping up for McCoy so I pulled the trigger on this one. Leaves my roster like this. Start 2QB's, 3RB, 3WR, TE, K, DEF (10 team league) Standard scoring except all tds worth six

QB- Brady, Vick, Freeman, Ponder
RB- Jones-Drew, Forte, Fred Jackson, Daniel Thomas, Helu, McCluster
WR- Marshall, AJ Green, Julio Jones, Harvin, Ward, Torrey Smith
TE- Hernandez, Fred Davis
K- Hanson
DEF- Best Matchup available

Ponder is only there because Vick and Brady have the same BYE week. Hoping Vikes get tired of Donovan by then. Because we start 2 QBS no starters are available.

I like the deal myself, though I love McCoy this year. I think the upgrade to Vick in a 2 qb league outweighs the drop off at RB.

You are taking a risk. McCoy has been as consistent as consistent can be. MJD is on a horrible team where defenses can focus just on him. Same cannot be said about Shady. Defenses need to focus on Vick, Maclin, Jackson, Shady, Celek...you get the point.

Then with Vick, I consider him a slight upgrade over Schaub, but with the concussion and bone bruise and whatnot, who knows how long he can stay healthy this year.

I personally would not have done it, but it's a decently even trade with some risk for the Vick/MJD side.
