Forte/Marshall for Austin/Bowe/Starks *WHIR*

Postby moochieh » Fri Oct 14, 2011 1:07 pm

10 team H2H standard scoring 3rd place, 6 teams make the playoffs so I'm playing for an eventual playoff run. The owner I'm trading with is 1-4 and needs to shake it up. He offered this deal:

I give: Forte
I get: Bowe, Colston, and Starks

We talked about ways for me to get Austin and Bowe together and he offered this:

I give: Forte, Marshall
I get: Bowe, Austin, and Starks

Here's the advice I want... Which trade would you do if any, if I do the first trade do I take Austin or Bowe (he said I can take either), and what would be your next course of action after the trade (like trade Colston and Lynch for a better RB or something). Thanks, WHIR 100%.

If I were you, I'd take the second trade and take Austin. Just a personal opinion, but I like Austin more than Bowe.

By the way, the link you posted on my post took me to the wrong spot. I had to search for your post.

I like the second one more. I like the combo of Bowe and Austin more than "x" and Colston. Once you do that deal you got plenty of receivers to acquire a solid runningback.

He's already got a good RB.

I'd hold Forte.

really tough to give up forte but if your going to do one, I'd definitely say to go for the second one.
Thanks for the help with mine!!

God, this is a tough one. I LOVE Forte, but I love Bowe/Austin too. I'm worried about BMarshall with the Dolphin's QB situation, although with daniel thomas emerging it could go either way for him.

I guess I'd do it. Andre Johnson/Bowe/Austin is retarded, and you could just run MJD/Felix and your 4 WR package of Bowe/AJohnson/Austin/AJGreen.

You have Lynch and Shonn Greene who could potentially turn into usefull RBs as well. If this were a standard league with 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex, I'd say don't do it, but since you can go 4 WR deep, go for it, and cross your fingers on Lynch/Greene.

As for next move, I don't know, you won't have much wiggle room after this trade. Mike Thomas/Lynch/Shonn Greene isn't a pretty package to try to turn into a better RB. Maybe try to sell high on AJ Green in a package with Shonn Greene for another RB?

2nd trade all day. Don't care what the format is. Miami just doesn't have the personnel suited to a prolific passing game. Marshall's a great player, but he only can go as far as his QB can take him.
