Nicks for Bradshaw (plus others) - WHIR

Postby bstock123 » Fri Oct 07, 2011 5:43 am

He would give me his A. Bradshaw, A. Boldin, and J. Cutler for my H. Nicks and D. Williams.

My thoughts: on face value it seems pretty good for me. However, when you look at my squad below, I don't really need the RB (except for this week) as much as I do the WR. Mendy will probably be out for me this week, but if I accepted the trade today, I don't think it'd be approved by game-time Sunday. I guess the question really boils down to do we see Mendy as a legit RB2 going forward, and is Boldin a good enough replacement for losing Nicks. I start 3 WRs. Let me know your thoughts, and, as always, WHIR.

Boy thats a tough trade. Both Culter and Williams are not cutting it this year so basically its Boldin and Bradshaw for Nicks. God I wish I was a fan of Eli Manning and for that I might pull the trigger on this trade, especially with Evans out and the run game the giants have.

If you dont mind helpin me out? viewtopic.php?t=502271

Pass. You need Nicks more than another RB IMO. Is Redman available?

I picked up Redman earlier in the week. Not much on the WW in terms of RBs. K. Hunter, E. Graham, D. Carter, R. Helu....the usual suspects in a 12-team league.

Yeah I wouldn't do that, like stated above you really won't be imporving you're starting line-up. You need nicks he's been solid all year. Williams will porably get better as the year goes on, but Mendy is a beast slow start this year but give him time.
