Trade question Newton for Rice?

Postby mjones0712 » Sat Oct 15, 2011 8:20 am

I am in a 10 team, 1/2pt PPR league. We start 2RBs, 2WRs, 1 Flex.....I am currently the points leader.

My current QB's-Cam Newton and Tony Romo
My current RB's-Fred Jackson, Frank Gore, Beanie Wells, a couple of backups
My current WR's-Megatron, Vincent Jackson, Santana Moss, Nate Washington, a couple of backups

Trade offer is I give up Cam Newton and Frank Gore and receive Matt Schaub and Ray Rice.

I could use 3 RB's each week....Tony Romo at QB, Fred Jackson, Beanie, and Ray Rice at RB/Flex....Megatron and Vincent Jackson at WR

Thoughts?

Hell yeah. Thats upgrade upgrade there. Schaub is better than Newton and Rice is like the best RB in football. Well other than my boy Foster.

Schaub better than Newton? They are close in my league, but Newton averaging slightly higher. No matter though because I'll probably be using Romo as my main QB anyways.

Thanks for the quick reply and let me know if I can chime in on any of yours!!

Newton is way better than Shaub in my league. For what it's worth, I got McFadden for Newton straight up right after his 2nd big week in a row so I probably traded him at his peak value to a guy who really needed a QB. But given your roster I'd do the deal. I would do Newton and who you value less between Wells and Gore for the rest of the year. Either way he's getting fair value.

That's a beauty. Definitely 'Accept'!

Anytime you can get Rice for what you'd be giving up it's a no brainer. Romo and Schaub are more than sufficient. Good deal.

while I think your team improves with this deal, to me, you are not getting enough value from Cam. He is clearly a top 5 type QB right now. If you trade him away, you are playing Romo over Shaub, or at least I would. So, really you are getting Rice in exchage for Gore and a top 5 QB. Yikes, don't like that value. The other guys is getting a steal. It's possible in non ppr that Gore could put up close to the same numbers as rice, if he stays healthy.

If it were me, I would try to get a lot more.

I personally much prefer Gore to Wells. I would at least offer Wells instead of Gore. But, I think that is too much too.

I'm with drhanl. Newton has been playing insane ball, and Schaub will be without Johnson for a little bit. Now that Smith is making better decisions and passes, that opens more opportunity for Gore. Opportunity that he hasn't had in the past. I would stick with Newton/Gore for now, even though Rice is a beast.
