Brady and Foster for Gore, Fitz and Schaub? Thoughts? WHIR

Postby goalmachine » Tue Oct 11, 2011 3:40 pm

My team is in crisis. It's a 12 team league with .5 PPR. I'm currently 2-3, having lost 3 straight weeks. My best WR is out for the season, leaving me with a laughable group of WRs, and my star TE is out indefinitely. For this reason, I see the need to take action. I received this counteroffer today and I'm considering it:

I GIVE:
QB Tom Brady
RB Arian Foster

I GET:
QB Matt Schaub
WR Larry Fitzgerald
RB Frank Gore

The reason I'm considering this is because of my decimated receiving corps.

Here is my current squad:

QB Tom Brady

RB Arian Foster
RB Ahmad Bradshaw
RB Dexter McCluster

WR Eric Decker
WR Anquan Boldin
WR Deion Branch
WR Devery Henderson
WR Johnny Knox

TE Antonio Gates (out)
TE Ben Watson
TE Scott Chandler

D/ST Lions

K Alex Henerey

IR Kenny Britt (out for season)

So...should I trade away my top 2 draft picks for some more depth in Gore, Fitz and Schaub?

In my opinion your giving away WAY more than you're receiving -- remember it's all about points. Schaub doesn't have AJ and Gore is now where near Foster (i think he's about to explode again). how many slots for your WRs?

I dont see how you can justify that. You give away a top 3 QB and top 3 RB?? Think you will just make your team worse in the end. I understand u need help at WR, but trading away your top 2 players for a good but not superior WR (due to his team) is not worth it. Gore is playing well but injury prone and Schaub, who knows with Foster back, more emphasis back to run game it seems

I agree with these guys, you can't trade Brady/Foster to 'slightly' upgrade your WR depth. You're giving way too much up for Fitz, who at the moment isn't doing that great. Maybe try to broker a deal with Foster/Receiver for Replacement RB/ Upgrade Receiver.

your best bet is to try and trade bradshaw for a shonn greene/dez brynt type combo.

You need to look for guys who have underperformed so far and trade guys on your team that have over performed a little bit.

Def do not do this. Top QB and RB in fantasy. You would need more in return!

Help!
