Newton/Peterson Trade

Postby auwareagle47 » Tue Oct 11, 2011 1:29 pm

So, this is my first post on this forum actually and I have a question over a trade I had proposed late last week that was never even looked at by the other guy til today and he finally countered. I am going to copy and paste the original question I had posed to a few others, as well as the original trade offer and the rosters. Then I will follow up with his counter which to me is not a deal for me, but we'll see what you guys think. 10 team league, standard scoring, no ppr, Starting spots: QB, RB, RB, RB/WR, WR, WR, TE, D/ST ,K.

"My roster QB's and RB's: Matt Ryan, Josh Freeman, AP, Foster, Forte, Blount,
McGahee, Ingram and Tate. WR- Steve Smith (Car), Jeremy Maclin, Jordy Nelson, Nate Washington.

His roster QB's and RB's: Vick, Newton, Ryan Matthews, Cadillac, Hightower. WR- Devin Hester, DeSean Jackson, Steve Johnson, Jacoby Ford, Sidney Rice, Mike Williams (Sea)

M. Ryan and Freeman each share the same bye week for me in week 8; I actually
picked up Ryan as a FA after someone dropped him. For him Cadillac shares the
same bye week as Hightower which happens to be this week. Since he has only
those three RBs I figured he would be under a little pressure to get a decent
back to fill his open starting roster spot; not to mention, I figure he would
want a little more stability when Matthews's bye week comes up than just
throwing in Caddy. So, would a trade of Freeman or Ryan packaged w/ Blount or
McGahee for Newton be worthwhile for both sides? Keep in mind that so far, I
believe he has kept Newton on the bench just collecting dust.
Also, would the same trade be worth it for Vick at this point or would I be
better off playing match-ups with Freeman and Ryan then rolling the dice on a
week 8 QB grab from FA for their bye?
And which QB/RB package would be the most fair for Newton? I figure
Freeman/Blount."

I did in fact offer Freeman/Blount for Newton. He would go on to drop Cadillac and add Stevan Ridley instead. Of course, he lost his game this past weekend- although, it turned out Blount would have been no help as he left the game... So, now I sit with his roster having Caddy gone, Ridley -for whatever he's worth- in his place and on my roster the potential of Blount being out this week. His counter today: Newton for Freeman/Peterson. I feel I should also mention this is in fact a Keeper league. Right now, I am very -VERY- comfortable with my rb depth, happy enough with my wr's and feel my qb's are at least effective, but I feel adding someone like Newton would give me a slight edge over the other top two guys in the league. However, I am not comfortable with giving up my work horse AP, especially not this week coming up and Blount possibly not playing, McGahee being on a bye week and Ingram as my sole rb left to fill the last starting spot vacated by AP. Personally, I do not feel Newton is even worth AP for a one-to-one trade. However, I am always fond of a big RB stable. So, my simple question from all of this long-windedness... Good trade? Or am I right in my instincts this would be a foolish trade for me? Should I go ahead and decline and offer him Freeman/McGahee, or just give up hope for an actual fair trade for Newton from someone that wants AP?

I decided to pose another question to this possible trade to see if maybe it would generate a little feedback... Given the current rosters and my depth at RB, would it be a decent trade for both sides if I offered up McGahee/Blount/Freeman for Newton? I don't think my RB stable would take too big of a hit, he would get good RB depth. Also, Manningham is a FA in my league and this would clear up a little space on my roster to add him... So, in reality I would be making a move of McGahee/Blount/Freeman for Newton/Manningham... So, again, would this be a decent trade for both sides?

Ok, I am newbie to these forums, is there some ritual I need to follow in order to get an opinion. I am not certain if I didn't make the post correct of if there is something I am not doing as a newb here. Also, if anyone is actually reading I have one more choice I wanted to throw out for this trade... Blount/McGahee/Ingram/Freeman for Newton/Matthews?

Bro I wouldn't dare give up AP for Newton.
AP trade would require a top 10 RB with Newton back to you.
Example:
If I were giving up AP, it would take a Brees+McCoy type of deal
or Newton+Rice type of deal get it.

That is horrid on the other guy's part he's trying to hose you.

McGahee for Newton is fair.

Thanks for the reply bro. Yes, I knew the offer was a bad one, but I figured I at least had/have some shot of a deal getting done since he at least made some offer- even though it was a horrible one. I went with a Blount/McGahee/Freeman for Newton/Hightower offer and to be honest I would entertain that offer without Hightower in the mix. I still think that is too much for Newton, but I figured I would try to meet him a little bit on this as I can afford the hit to my rb depth and I feel I definitely need a QB upgrade. The only way he gets AP is if I can get him to agree on some sort of AP/Freeman for Newton,Matthew deal. I think he wins with the Matthews for AP part, but I think I get enough out of Newton over Freeman to make it worth my while... The only hesitation I have on pulling the trigger on that deal is simply because this is a keeper league. That being said I would be more inclined to lean towards Foster/Freeman for Matthews/Newton. All this rambling aside, I am waiting to see how reacts on the current deal: Blount/McGahee/Freeman for Newton/Hightower.

The Blount side wins that deal IMO.
