Is this a no-brainer?

Postby eromano33 » Thu Oct 06, 2011 6:36 pm

OK, so my problem right now is my WR3 for this week is Johnny Knox. Hes not very good and hes going against my defense so I've been looking for a replacement. I've had a lot of injury woes (Charles, Britt, Andre) So i've had to make trades to stay alive. I traded Stevie+ Nate W. Last week for Andre and obviously that blew up in my face. I was offered this today, and I believe it is a definitive sell high, buy (somewhat) low deal. Let me know what you think:

8 team, non ppr non keeper

I give:
Cam Newton
Fred Jackson
James Starks
Johnny Knox

I get:
Philip Rivers
Maurice Jones-Drew
AJ Green

My current roster (projected week 5 Lineup)
QB: Newton vs. NO
WR: Fitzgerald vs. MIN
WR: Julio vs. GB
WR: Johnny Knox vs. DET
RB: Adrian Peterson vs. MIN
RB: Fred Jackson vs. PHI
TE: Jimmy Graham vs. CAR
DEF: Lions vs. CHI
K: Janikowski vs. HOU
BN: Romo BYE
BN: Schaub vs. OAK
BN: Dez BYE
BN: Andre HURT
BN: Beanie vs. MIN
BN: Starks vs. CHI

My thoughts:

I'm not giving up scrubs. I think Newton has a solid chance of putting up 25+ points this week, and It looks like FJAx has become an elite RB this year. Knox and Starks I don't think much of. I'm getting back Rivers who should be a top QB, but his top weapons are banged up, and Mathews is looking more and more like a factor and may remove some of the passing oppurtunities as Norv tries to get him more work. Green should be a good backup/Spot starter but he is still a rookie, and MJD is always an injury risk with a rookie QB. It's very difficult.

I like this trade - AJ Green will produce more in the future as he and Dalton continue to build chemistry. Rivers, according to the trends in previous seasons, gets better as the season progresses, so I think he's a good pick up. And while MJD has the injury risk, he's looked good so far. Plus you'd rather him get more touches than less, despite his injury risk.

I say go for it. Good luck in your league!

Could use some help with my trade too: viewtopic.php?t=502180

I like the trade for your team but Im not in love with it. However I think your missing out on Knox this week. I was actually thinking about picking up Knox just for this game and would love him as a #3 this week. Dont be surprised if Knox puts up good numbers and a TD this week.

bump... I don't want to start Knox because I am starting Lions D- that would be counterproductive, no?
