The trade: Send LaDainian Tomlinson, NYJ RB from Bench to Raiders Send David Nelson, Buf WR from Bench to Raiders Receive Danny Woodhead, NE RB from Raiders to Bench Receive Brandon Lloyd, Den WR from Raiders to Bench
Does this trade make sense for me or should I pass on it? Yeah, I lost Andre Johnson for, what they are saying, three weeks but I have Steve Smith (Car), Sidney Rice, and David Nelson. But I also feel that is a cheap price for Lloyd, but I am also getting Woodhead which is not so thrilling. So what should I do? I will reply just leave link.
My Roster: QB Matthew Stafford, Det QB RB Jonathan Stewart, Car RB RB Fred Jackson, Buf RB WR Steve Smith, Car WR WR Sidney Rice, Sea WR TE Owen Daniels, Hou TE DT Geno Atkins, Cin DT DE Jason Babin, Phi DE LB James Anderson, Car LB LB Stephen Tulloch, Det LB CB Jason McCourty, Ten CB S Matt Giordano, Oak S D/ST Packers D/ST D/ST K Stephen Gostkowski, NE K Bench Andre Johnson, Hou WR Bench LaRon Landry, Wsh S Bench Matt Cassel, KC QB Bench LaDainian Tomlinson, NYJ RB Bench Ronde Barber, TB CB Bench Calais Campbell, Ari DE Bench Quincy Black, TB LB Bench David Nelson, Buf WR Bench Lee Evans, Bal WR Bench Ahtyba Rubin, Cle DT
I'm not that excited about Lloyd ... but you aren't giving up much to get him. LT is a bench player .. unless something crazy happen. Nelson is a flex buy week fill in. I know he has some nice value in PPR leagues ... but he is amongst many mouths in Buffalo.
Lloyd may lose a bit of value if Denver has a change in QB ... but he's still a tremendous upgrade as a middle class WR2 and gives you an option other than Sidney Rice (Tennessee may be without Mike Williams for a bit ... and SRice have DBs all over him).
LOVE the trade for you. Lloyd is a #1 on a bad team that's got an average QB. He's a big play threat, and he'll get you big yardage. Nothing you are giving up is even close to that value. LT is a backup, ineffective RB and Nelson is fighting Jones and Chandler for touches, and isn't a big play threat.
