Finley for F. Jackson? WHIR

Postby lugmetric » Wed Oct 05, 2011 11:47 am

So I have been offered Fred Jackson for Finley.
I'm in 2nd place in the league, despite injuries to key players.
Roster below. 10 Team, 0.5PPR. Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX.

QB: Romo
RB: Rice, Blount, Starks, Jacobs, Scott
WR: Bryant, Marshall, Harvin, Meachem, Cruz
TE: Finley

Jared Cook and Dallas Clark are currently on waivers, and I could add him to replace Finley. RB Depth would not hurt this team. This seems like a classic high sell/low buy, with me on the wrong end, but FJax is looking like an every week RB1/RB2 play.

Thoughts? Leave a link, I will help you out.

I would take that deal. Finley can still put up duds like the rest of the TEs and I think having a Rice/Jackson tandem would be very powerful. All about value, and Jackson's value i think would make up for the WW TE

any advice? viewtopic.php?t=501496

I would do this trade. Finley isn't going to put up 3 td's per week. If Clark and Cook are on the WW, you will still be gaining by getting Jackson.

Honestly I would try to get more for Finley, because did have 3 TDs a week ago. But if you can't I would still make the trade because like you said Fred Jackson has looked like a good option week after week.

I would absolutely do the trade. Finley is a great TE, but FJax is putting up insane numbers this year. Will definitely be a more solid start than Blount.

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

Absolutely. Have to do it. I'd consider Finley roughly the equivalent of a good WR2 for fantasy, and I'd definitely trade a WR2 for a RB1/RB2. FJax won't be able to keep it up like this all year, neither will Buffalo, but if you need a 2nd starter, make the deal.

With the format as is, I'd try and trade Blount in addition. I'll bet you can get at least as productive of a TE as Finley for him too. And I'd consider that a huge upgrade at RB.

Decker for Starks?

I think Finley's great, but if you can pick up Cook on WW, and get Jackson, you definitely win in the end. Jackson is a monster in fantasy as he gets most of the carries, and is also the goal line RB.

Should I drop anyone to stash Hasselback or Redman?

I'd do the deal. I have Finley in my league and it seems for every great game there are one or two games like last week where he produced 2 points. The teams in my league that are doing the best are the teams with multiple quality backs so I'd go with Jackson.

Make the deal quick, before he changes his mind. You win by far imo.
