Cutler/Austin for Romo/Branch

Postby omikron » Tue Oct 04, 2011 7:20 pm

In a PPR league:

I was going to originally get Cutler for Branch, because Romo has his bye next week and the only QBs on the waiver are McNabb and Painter. Instead the deal opened up to Romo/Branch for Cutler and Miles Austin

Who do you think wins that trade?

My other WRs are: Dez Bryant, Maclin, Mike Williams (TB), Victor Cruz.
My RBs are LeSean McCoy and Earnest Graham (I had Jamaal Charles but he went down. This is a 16 team league so its hard to get depth.)
Jermichael Finley for the TE.

No backup QBs

I wouldn't do it

1- you'd have Dez Bryant and Miles austin as your two best WR options...not a good situation. especially given your lack of depth at RB

2- Painter is actually looking like a really solid play this week at home vs a horrific KC team that's riddled with injuries

I'd look to trade for a better RB, if you could trade branch for Ridley or Redman I'd go for that
