Trading Dez Bryant - which offer is best? WHIR!

Postby Lenny6 » Fri Oct 21, 2011 2:16 pm

Another team is interested in Dez Bryant and an offer of Rashard Mendenhall for Bryant straight up is on the table. My offer of Steve Johnson for Mendenhall was turned down. We both like Braynt's upside and I might be able to ask for more. What is the best deal to make? It is an 8-team, standard scoring league.

My roster:
QB E.Manning, M.Schaub (start 1)
RB C.Johnson, A.Bradshaw, P.Hillis, J.Addai (start 2)
REC H.Nicks, R.White, D.Bryant, S.Johnson, R.Wayne, E.Decker (start 3)
K R.Gould, R.Bironas (start 1)
DST Green Bay, Philly (start 1)

His roster:
QB T.Romo, M.Ryan, T.Tebow
RB A.Peterson, R.Rice, R.Mendenhall, B.Wells, R.Torrain
REC L.Fitzgerald, J.Graham, B.Pettigrew, V.Davis, S.Moss
K Bailey
DST NY Jets, N.England

What would you do?
-Take Mendenhall for Bryant straight up?
-Ask for Mendenhall +(Pettigrew, V.Davis or S.Moss) for Bryant + Addai?
-Go for B.Wells instead of Mendenhall?
-Keep Bryant and pick up E.Graham for the week

Thanks! Leave a link and I will help in return 100%.

I would consider it for Mendenhall. But I would wait for after this week. I'm not buying Mendenhall's monster game last week.

I need a RB for this week, though, as well as a longer term solution. Would you pick up Graham, or trade for Beanie Wells if you are not sold on Mendenhall?

I do think that Graham will have a good game, so if no trade makes sense, I would just pick him up.

For this trade, consider the rest of the season more than this week. Basing a trade on one game usually turns out bad (from my experience).

I would attempt to move on Rice. He is one of the most consistent players and he's almost guaranteed to get you 15 points. Do you think he'd bite on a Bryant + Hillis/Addai/Decker for Rice or maybe Bryant + S. Johnson for Rice + David or something? I like Mendenhall, but the Steelers are just now starting to click and I'm skeptical if it will continue.

Thanks again for helping on my post, hopefully this helped a little.

He just picked up Rice in a trade which is allowing him to move Mendenhall or Wells. He did offer up another deal, so now my choice is:

- Beanie Wells for Steve Johnson
or
- Rashard Mendenhall for Dez Bryant

Is the Wells for Johnson deal better, or one of the four original options?
