QB Blues

Postby N.E. Challengers » Sat Oct 22, 2011 7:01 pm

PPR League (QB, RB, WR, 2 Flex, TE)

Roster: QB (Matt Ryan, Sam Bradford), RB (Rice, Run DMC, Fred Jax, Forte, Spiller), WR (Nicks, Moss, Decker)

Currently have four of the top six RBs in fantasy, but haven't gotten sh*t from either QB. Would you trade away one of the RB studs for a top-tier QB? If so, what can I expect to get back?

For example, one guy offered Romo for Rice. Romo has a really favorable schedule the rest of the way, so I am interested. However, I think he should give me Mendenhall/Romo for Rice. Is that unreasonable? Would you ride it out with Matty Ice?

Really need some help. My season is in jeopardy.

I would rather keep Rice and try to sell F. Jackson while his stock is high. I don't think he can keep it up all year. In this situation I'd try to package him with Matt Ryan to get a better QB.

I think you can upgrade QB, but Rice for Romo is too much unless you can get something else in return. Perhaps you could post the rosters of possible trade candidates, as you probably dont need to give up so much to improve. Or perhaps a multi-player deal to even it up?

I'd sell on FJax, the only reason being that I feel DMC and Rice are better backs. Romo for any one of those guys and you're giving too much. Maybe for Rodgers, then I'd go straight up, any other QB, you need to be getting something back. RB is the money position, if you're giving one of the top guys in fantasy you need to be getting at least a top QB plus a WR2 or RB2, depending on you're needs, it looks like you could use a WR also.

Romo and Mendy for Rice I feel is too much for Rice, you should probably give a little back there, maybe like Romo/Mendy for FJax/Bradford

I'd look for some wr depth in that Rice deal rather than Mendy. Romo and Mendy is far too steep a price for Rice. Either way, you should be able to upgrade. I'd also try to package Bradford in there somehow. Get him off of your roster and try to get something for him, he is dead space this year (not for lack of talent, but injuries and talent around him).
You are unlikely to be able to get into that Rodgers/Brees tier in a trade, but the Romo/Big ben/Rivers tier, yes. Come to think of it, now is a good time to buy low on Rivers - especially if you can keep Ryan, too. Any chance with that owner?

Thanks for the help on mine ;-D

Romo for Mendy is fair.
If you trade Rice for a QB it has best be Brees/Brady/Rodgers.
