Getting Desperate: Trade Holmes for DeAngelo Williams? WHIR

Postby war106 » Sat Oct 22, 2011 10:22 am

OK Guys this is a 12 team, .5 PPR league. Total points, not h2h. I'm in first place. I just pulled off a trade that brought me Tom Brady, but I'm really thin at RB now.

I GIVE: Santonio Holmes

I GET: DeAngelo Williams

I know that Williams has stunk it up this year, but he is still an explosive back and when the weather gets cold I think he'll be relied on more. I'm really thin at RB, I have Jahvid Best but he might not return this season. Would you do this trade?

Here's my team:

QB: Rodgers/Brady/ Matt Moore (We start 2 QBS!)

WR: Vjax (We start 3)
Desean jax
Holmes

RB: Forte
Jahvid Best/Morris

TE: Pettigrew

W/T Manningham/Greg Little/Percy Harvin

W/R Reggie Bush

Bench
Terrell Owens

DEF: Dallas

Not worth DWill in my opinion. Find someone weak at WR and try to get a decent RB2-3 with Holmes +/- someone else

Last week I almost pulled off Holmes for mcgahee. Maybe with the emergence of Tebow, you could do that trade. I'm thinking mcgahee will still get his yards, just not as many TDs.

Not really sure on this one. I really don't like Williams. In my mind he's tough to start any given week and it seems that Stewart has been getting more love in their game plans lately. That said, you really need something, so I can't blame you for making a deal. Try to find something, anything, else if you can. If not, I guess you kinda have to make a the deal to stay competitive. Also, I'd drop T.O. and go after any high-upside RB you can find. Delone Carter? Keiland Williams, just to be safe?

DAW is not even the best RB in Carolina. You should aim high. Try to buy low on Mendenhall, maybe MJD, Matthews or Blount.

Help?

I agree to aim high but those guys you said, Mendy, MJD, Mathews, Blount, those guys are not even close to attainable for Santa Holmes.

Blount maybe.

What RB and QB are available you have sick WR depth but hardly any RBs. I would go with anyone over Matt Moore: Boller (even him).

I know you don't start 3 W/Ts. That's just crazy.
