Foster and Boldin for MJD and DeSean?

Postby goalmachine » Tue Oct 11, 2011 6:04 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've worked out a few different offers for Foster and this is the most attractive one I've been able to negotiate thus far.

I GIVE:
RB Arian Foster
WR Anquan Boldin

I GET:
RB Maurice Jones-Drew
WR DeSean Jackson

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

Here is my current squad: We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 WR/RB, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF.
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)

Should I send my first-rounder packing in favor of WR depth?

U get a first rounder back who has been far more productive...and highly improve your receiving corp..I'd do it without hesitation. You are losing potential with AFost...but gaining known productivity and a potential explosive receiver...

Do it...

Help if you can...

Its tough cause Foster is an explosive scorer too. MJD is not. Sure he gets the 100 every week and a score here or there. I dont know. Desean is hit or miss. I think I would hang on to Foster.

I agree completely with latsprewell20002000. MJD should get you consistent points week in and week out, but he isn't nearly as explosive as Foster. On the other hand, I love DeSean's big play capability, but I really worry about his consistency. That being said, I don't feel like you can go wrong either way but if it were me I would probably hold on to Foster.

DJax2 gets no love and he's a stud #2 WR but not that #1 guy you need.
Very tough, but I'd pass.
