Blount for Torain ???

Postby crockies99 » Tue Oct 11, 2011 6:11 pm

Hi. I am in a 12 man PPR league. I have R. Mendenhall, M. Turner, D. Thomas, S. Greene, and R. Torain as my RBs. We can start 2 and 1 flex.

Somebody has offered me Legarrette Blount for Ryan Torain. I don't need Blount or Torain to start this week as well. I am still not sold on how much Torain will be able to be counted on in Washington, but there's also Blount's knee injury. If he wasn't hurt, I'd make the deal, but with that being said would you make this deal?

Thanks!

If you leave a link I will go to yours. I'll be on for the next hour or so, so sometimes I don't come back after a day or two after that, but for an hour or so I will be on.

thanks for the help with mine. And I'd DO IT before the guy realizes he's getting a Mike Shannahan RB. I expect Blount to get stronger as the season goes on...I expect Torain to get hurt or benched. Especially with Hulu and Hightwoer there.. do you see Graham taking Blounts starting spot????? NO! DO THE TRAD3!

Graham might not take the starting spot but he sure gets the ball an awful lot.

Do you think his injury is a concern though? Blount's that is. Is it worth the gamble. I can't find that much information on him. I assume if it was severe they would have done more tests?

This is about all i could fine. Sorry, hope it helps..

Bucs coach Raheem Morris hinted Monday that he doesn't anticipate LeGarrette Blount (knee) playing Sunday against the Saints.
"I don't want to rule (Blount) out, but I'm not looking at him. It is what it is. Next man up," said Morris. "I'd like to get more detailed information on him. I'll call him day-to-day for now." The St. Petersburg Times expects Earnest Graham to receive "a bulk of the carries" against New Orleans, with Kregg Lumpkin and Allen Bradford also in the mix for work. Oct 10 - 5:27 PM

Do it! Blount is a much more reliable back than Torain plus he doesn't have nearly the competition Torain does for carries. I would feel much safer having Blount on my roster rather than Torain.

Well, I did it. Hopefully he is okay, even if he is okay after this week for rest of year, it works out. Thanks for the help!
