HUGE trade! I need help! WHIR!

Postby demon22 » Fri Oct 14, 2011 12:57 pm

So, I was offered this trade today:

I get:
Adrian Peterson
Aaron Hernandez
Mike Williams (TB)

I give:
Roddy White
MJD
Brandon Lloyd

Here is my current roster:
PPR League
QB Big Ben
QB Eli Manning
WR Roddy White
WR Miles Austin
WR Mike Wallace
RB MJD
RB Arian Foster
TE Dallas Clark
W/R/T Ahmad Bradshaw
W/R/T Anquan Boldin
BN Jonathan Stewart
BN Joe Flacco
BN Mike Tolbert
BN Brandon Lloyd
BN Antonio Gates

This whole thing popped up because I expressed interest in trading for Hernandez because Clark has sucked this year so far without Manning, and Gates has been battling his chronic foot issues. This is a PPR league, by the way. The guy who proposed this also has Jason Witten, and he says he could replace Hernandez with Witten if I replace Brandon Lloyd with Antonio Gates. I'm just really confused!

Please help!

I generally like getting the best player in return, but I'm not sure on this one. I'm leaning towards declining it if I were you. Peterson is not as valuable in a PPR and your WRs would take a hit. Why not just try to get Hernandez alone like you wanted in the first place?

You would definately be giving up too much for Peterson in a PPR league, IMO

I've tried trading just for Hernandez without giving up someone like Roddy, but he hasn't been very receptive. He proposed Hernandez straight up for MJD, and I said no effing way haha.

I like the upgrade to AP, and the TE really helps you. I actually like this trade for you. Also, Roddy's been lackluster this year.
