Waffling Between Two Pretty Good Trade Scenarios (WHIR)

Postby Non-Expert » Thu Oct 20, 2011 8:18 pm

UPDATE: I took trade #2. Tell me if I made the right decision or just got hosed!

I've been offered two decent trade options in my money league. First, though, here are the settings for the league:

10 Team Keeper League (Round Drafted), PPR, 4 points for Passing Touchdowns, 6 Points for all other Touchdowns

Roster Positions:

QB, WR, RB, TE, W/R, W/R, K, DEF, IR, 6 Bench

And here's my current roster:

QBs - Josh Freeman, Matt Ryan
WRs - Andre Johnson, Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Roddy White
RBs - Matt Forte, Steven Jackson, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Mike Tolbert
TEs - Fred Davis, Jermaine Gresham
DEF - Detroit
K - Robbie Gould

Finally, here are the two trades I've been offered so far:

#1 - Tony Romo + 11th Round Pick for 7th Round Pick and Josh Freeman or Matt Ryan (My choice)

#2 - Drew Brees + Shonn Greene for Andre Johnson + Steven Jackson

A few notes:

1. In this league when you keep a player you lose the pick of the round they were drafted. If you keep them a second year, that goes up one round. I kept Welker for a 5th round pick this year, so next year it'll cost a 4th to keep him. Also, I kept Forte with a 3rd round pick this year, and it'll cost a 2nd to keep him next year.
2. I already traded away my 5th round pick to get Roddy White. So, I'm already potentially out my 2nd, 4th and 5th round picks next year. (Though, obviously I would get Forte and Welker for two of those, so possibly not that big a deal.).
3. The guy offering #2 doesn't really have much else to offer besides Dwayne Bowe and I doubt he'd offer that when he's already giving up a top 3 QB.
4. I'm currently one slot out of the playoffs, as I'm tied for 1st at 4-2 with 4 other owners, but have the least points of that group.
5. The team offering trade #1 is 1-5, and the team offering trade #2 is 2-4 and I just beat him last week. He originally wanted Johnson and Forte; this is his 2nd offer.
6. The team offering trade #2 just agreed to trade Dustin Keller and Steven Ridley for Jason Witten and Rashard Mendenhall (plus swap of draft picks)

Which do you think would be the best offer?

First off im not really familiar with keepers and trading draft picks as my league doesn't do them.

However, i def like trade 2 better. brees is a stud and puts up numbers. Greene will be good depth for you so that is a good thing. Furthermore, AJ is hurt and no telling what and when this injury will do to him or when he will even be back. Jackson himself has been hurt and stl isn't that good so they could be behind a lot which means a lot more throwing then running.

You have solid wrs so you can afford to let him go and drastically upgrade your qb situation.

thanks for the help

Thanks for the help on this and that's definitely the way I'm leaning.

Anybody think trade #1 is better?
