Trade Best for Rivers?

Postby topkat2008 » Tue Oct 04, 2011 8:45 pm

12-team 0.5ppr standard scoring league

QB scoring: 1pt per 40 pass yds, 5pts per pass td, 6 pts per rush td
RB scoring: 1pt per 15 rush yds, 0.5pt per rec, 6pt per td

Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex (RB/WR), 1 TE , 1K, 1 Def

I get: Rivers + one of (Tate, MchGahee, Manningham, Nelson)
I give: Best + Flacco

Would like to upgrade my QB as Schaub/Flacco are good/decent, but not "elite". Meanwhile, Best has not been too consistent.

Is it worth it to upgrade to a top-5 QB in Rivers (although not doing so great so far) to give up my RB depth?
Figure most weeks, I'd be starting DMac and Mathews at RB, and Wallace and White at WR,
so I'd be choosing between AJ Green, Starks, or Ridley for Flex

Does getting Rivers strengthen my team or pass on the trade?

My team:
QB Schaub, Flacco
RB McFadden, Mathews, Best, Starks, Ridley
WR Wallace, White, AJ Green
TE Kinslow
K Gostkowski
Def Chicago

His team:
QB Rivers, Stafford
RB Rice, Felix Jones, Greene, Tate, McGahee
WR Maclin, Manningham, Nelson,
TE Davis
K Hanson
Def Atlanta

If I do the trade, it leaves me with Rivers and Mathews on my starting roster.

Any concerns with starting a QB and RB from same team every week?

I would try McGahee/Flacco first.
