Brees/LeSean McCoy for Stafford/Best/Benson

Postby SkittlesAreYum » Fri Oct 14, 2011 11:06 am

Hi all,

The following trade was proposed to me:

I trade Drew Brees + LeSean McCoy for Matthew Stafford + Javhid Best + Cedric Benson.

I will post my roster and league info below. The reason I'm considering it is I am in need of another startable RB, but I'm worried that Best or Benson might not fit the bill better than James Starks, or at least not enough to justify losing McCoy, especially once I factor in Benson's suspension hanging over his head. So far Stafford vs Brees is a bit of a wash, with the exception of Stafford's injury history.

Thanks in advance!

Drew Brees
LeSean McCoy
Earnest Graham [Tampa's backup RB, now starting because of Blount injury]
James Starks
Dez Bryant
Victor Cruz
Scott Chandler
Bengals D/ST
Olindo Mare

LeGarrette Blount [Out for 2+ weeks]
Mario Manningham
Julio Jones [Out for 2+ weeks]
Colt McCoy
Buccaneers D/ST
Stevan Ridley
Titus Young

Standard ESPN scoring (10 rec/rush yards per point, TDs 6 points, etc.)
No keepers
I'm thinking long-term with this trade so I'm not worried about upcoming matchups

I'd like to hear other opinions from more experienced managers, since I'm interested on this deal and the perceived value of 2 for 3 and 1 for 2 deals.

First impression, I tend to think you're giving up a little too much, even though I can understand why you would need to make this deal. Brees and Stafford may be a wash statistically, but I do think Brees is more of a sure thing just because he has more experience (although having Tron to throw to is a plus).

So it comes down to McCoy, a bonafide top 5 FFB RB, vs Best + Benson. I would think McCoy has a little more trade value than that. Since he proposed, try to counter offer.
