Postby prophecy135 » Wed Oct 05, 2011 9:43 am

Just got offered this, I give Marshall and Starks, and I get back AJ. Problem is this week I need Starks as my entire bench is on bye. See roster below.

12 team PPR
QB: Flacco, Freeman
RB: McCoy, CJ2K, D. Murray, Tate, Starks, R. Bush
WR: White, Marshall, S. Moss, Nelson, Bess
TE: Clark, Gronk

I know Aj is an amazing wr, but would you do this???

Personally, I wouldn't do this.
If AJ was 100% healthy, I would.

But, given your bye situation and the fact that AJ will be out at least a week or two, I would sit on what you have. In fact, if you can pull this trade off next week, I would probably go for it.

Very risky.

I don't think that Marshall will have good numbers this year. Henne now out, Moore at the helm, who knows about Garrard. I just don't like it. That being said, AJ is hurt, but a beast when healthy. That's the risk of one versus the other. Now throw in that Grant and Starks are really fighting for a starting job, and I think that this turns the trade out of your favor. Starks looked awesome at the beginning, Grant turning it on until the kidney. Starks decent after. I really don't think that it will be a traditional RBBC. I think they will have a clear cut starter by game 8. If that turns out to be Starks, you'll regret it. If not, you'll love it.

Like I said, risky :)

Some semi-urgent love please: viewtopic.php?t=501442
