Trade Ryan Torain for Anquan Boldin?? WHIR

Postby mr. bojangles » Thu Oct 06, 2011 7:51 pm

I just used my #1 waver position to snag Torain. Now some guy in my league really wants him, and is offering me Boldin for him. Is he worth sitting on to see what develops, or should i act now and bolster my WR core with Boldin?

Here is my team (12 team, standard scoring, redraft league. Play 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1 FLEX)

QB: Stafford, Orton
RB: Ray Rice, Beanie Wells, James Starks, Issac Redman, Steven Ridley, Ryan Torain, Ben Tate
WR: Roddy White, Mike Wallace, Dez Bryant, Malcom Floyd, Jacoby Jones
TE: Jimmy Graham
K: Alex Henery
DST: Chargers

I say go for it... I think Torain's bubble is going to burst, especially when Hightower comes back with full health. He'll be good for weeks 6-8, maybe, but after that, I think it'll just be the Tim Hightower show.

help please?

I wouldn't take the trade so much for Boldin, but rather that Torrain is just another one of the 3 RBs Shanny decides to play in the middle of a game. Torrain would be hard to put in a lineup, outside of a Hightower owner, cause he could goose egg (because of Shanny). Make the trade just so you don't have to deal with the headache. At least with Boldin you KNOW he's going to play.

To be honest, I think Torain will help you more than Boldin will. You have a nice starting WR corp, but Beanie is injury prone and after him it's kind of a toss up. I'd either aim higher than Boldin or just hold onto Torain bc he's Shanny's pony.

Thanks for the help with mine.

Boldin might be the Ravens' #1 WR, but I would pass on this deal for the simple fact that your WR core is solid IMO. See if he has a big game and try to package him up. If he really wants him see if you squeeze a little more value out of him. In fact post the other guy's roster and some FAs please.
