Turner for Brees? WHIR

Postby JP555 » Tue Oct 04, 2011 12:17 am

I have my friend I am trying to wheel and deal with, and looking for a fair trade to make, but first year player so would love some advice. The Players he has that I want - Brees, VJax. He likes Turner, Hillis, Dez, Decker, Hernandez, Ingram (he is spread thin). He has already offered Brees for Turner. I may counter with a Hillis for VJax

Where do you think I need help the most? What might be a fair deal? play in a 10 team Standard league

My team
QB - Ryan FitzPatrick
RB 1-Arian Foster
RB 2-Michael Turner
RB/WR-Peyton Hillis
WR 1 -Dez Bryant
WR 2 -Marques Colston
WR/TE - Eric Decker
TE - Jason Witten
BENCH -
Freeman / Hightower/ Ingram / Ridley / L. Moore / J. Ford / Aaron Hernandez

Re: looking to upgrade team, any advice would be great

Just to add, he has Deangelo Williams as well, in case he turns it around this year. I am trying to unload Hillis BC he has a tough end of the year schedule playing Balt twice, and worried about him not getting carries. Current offer I am being given is my Turner + Decker for his Brees + Stewart/Deangelo, just Turner for Brees straight up, or Hillis + Decker/Hernandez for Brees

As much as I dislike Turner, I dislike Hillis even more. You dont need a QB, rolling with Fitzpatrick will be fine. Brees is definitely an upgrade, but not at the expense of your starting RB who will leave you with a hole.

I would try to trade Turner or Hills for Vjax.

Maybe you can even do Turner, Ingram, Colston for Brees and Vjax if he still says no then add Decker or Hernandez

I'd keep turner so you have 2 stud RBs. Fitz has had a decent season besides week 4. I'd trade turner and someone else if somehow you get vjax and brees.

Thanks for the help with mine.

I wouldn't do the Brees trade. Fitz has been solid, and it would leave you with a gaping hole at RB2. I don't trust any of the RBs on your bench to replace Turner.

I would agree with what everyone is saying. Don't freak out because Fitz had one bad week. They are gonna throw the ball around plenty. Plus, like the dude above said, I don't really trust any other rbs on ur bench to replace turner, so unless you're getting someone else in return, dont do it.

Plus you got Freeman on your bench who is know for his slow starts, but he just went off last week. No need for another QB

I agree with the others. Brees would be a nice addition, but that's not the biggest area of need on your team. If you want to deal, go for VJax, but having a set of RBs will take you far whereas there seem to be different WRs popping up every week that good plays.

Ya, I'm with the others. No need to make this deal, I like the current structure of your team and I don't think this trade would be beneficial for you.

Thanks for helping with mine

I wouldn't do this trade given your current roster.

Help me please:
