Would I be a fool to trade D.Brees for R.Mathews?

Postby ant1thehand » Tue Oct 04, 2011 5:18 pm

Ok guys i have been offered R.Mathews for my D.Brees. I do have C.Newton as my backup who to this point has played very well and has actually more fantasy points than Brees in my league. I am very weak at RB. Here is my roster. 14 man league h2h yahoo standards scoring league. Am i dumb to think Newton can preform solid for me the rest ofthe way as my starter. The other manager rejected my counter by offering newton instead . That way i see it it does no good to have to good QBs on my bench the whole season while im very weak at RB2 position.

QB. D.Brees,Bench C.Newton
RB. MJD, T.Jones, Bench M.Ingram, R.Bush
Wr. R.White, D.Bowe Bench , J. Jones, D. Branch
TE. J.Finley
K. Akers
DEF TB

I would do it. See if the other owner would take Newton first, but since you don't need both QBs, Mathews would fit in well for your team.

Yeah I would try to sell Newton first but if he wont then Id still do it. Bench points mean nothing, dont forget!

I would do Newton for Mathews but not Brees...

I made a trade, my Schaub and Moreno for Mathews... Schaub is good but not as good as Brees.

But hell, since you already accepted, I guess it doesnt mean much now... hope Newton works out for ya
