Major Trade, need opinions WHIR!

Postby GiantsGuy18 » Fri Oct 21, 2011 11:18 am

Here is my Roster (The amount we start is in parentheses):

QB(1) - Tony Romo, Philip Rivers, Curtis Painter, Carson Palmer
RB(2) - Arian Foster, Montario Hardesty, DeAngelo Williams, Fred Jackson,
WR(2) - Brandon Lloyd, Steve Breaston, David Nelson, Victor Cruz
TE(1) - Jimmy Graham
D(1) - Cowboys, Giants
K(1) - Janikowski

Here's the trade:

I give - Fred Jackson and (Steve Breaston or Victor Cruz)
I get - Miles Austin and Shonn Greene

What do you think? Post a link and I'll help with yours too.

NOTE: I edited the original post with a different trade after the first reply.

I don't know your roster, but I'm not a big fan of either trade. Fred Jackson is having a really good year, and although Miles Austin is good, I certainly think Jackson is way better. I like Greene more than I like Battle because of the Jets commitment to running, and I think Brandon Lloyd will probably be better than Cruz as the season progresses, but if I had to take a trade I would go with the first one. I would try to see if you could work out a better deal, either trading a way a lower WR on your side or having the guy upgrade his package with Austin. Thanks for the help with mine.

Try to deal a QB to upgrade at WR. Foster, FJax, and Hardesty (next couple weeks) provide solid depth. What is available for RB and WR in FA?

There really isn't a reason to have 4 QBs.

I'd go with Rivers/Romo and Palmer/Painter. Use one of Rivers or Romo to acquire a RB and WR.

Not a fan of the trade either, Greene is a big drop off from Jackson right now and without him you're left with Greene/Foster as starters. I don't think you'd gain much with this deal, rather roll with those WR's and get the benefit of the two monster RB's.
