Trade for Julio Jones? WHIR!!!

Postby Weasel_King » Tue Oct 25, 2011 3:05 pm

First here are the the rosters of my team and the team I am attempting to get Julio Jones from.

ME
QB: Tony Romo
RB: Matt Forte
RB: Shonne Green
RB/WR: Ryan Torian
WR:Hakeem Nicks
WR: Darrius Heyward-Bey
TE: Brandon Pettigrew
K: John Kasay
DST: Matchups
Bench
QB: Carson Palmer
RB: James Starks
RB: Maurice Morris
WR: Sidney Rice
WR: Mario Manningham

The weakness of this group is the 2nd WR slot, although I do have 3 people Rice/DHB/Manningham, but I am looking to improve this through acquiring Julio Jones.

His roster
QB: Phillip Rivers
RB: LeSean McCoy
RB: Isaac Redman
RB/WR: Anquan Boldin
WR: Julio Jones
WR: Hines Ward
TE: Rob Gronkowski
K: Mason Crosby
DST: Jets
Bench:
RB: Felix Jones (out for awhile)
RB: Jahvid Best- uncertainity with him and should be out in near future
RB: McGahee- hand injury
WR: Mohamed Massaquoi
TE: Fred Davis

Due to the numerous RB injuries on his team, he is having to roll out Hines Ward and Isaac Redman as his starters who in the past 5 weeks combined on averaged have each produced 4 points. So clearly this is an issue for him. I was thinking that I could trade him some combination of Morris(who could start for him while Best is out and provide insurance in case he is out for an extended period of time), and either 1 or 2 of my WR's (Rice/Manningham) for Julio Jones- I was thinking 2 WR's because his #3/4 Ward and Massaquoi aren't really roster-worthy. Any thoughts on this proposal? Also.... due to bye-week issues for week 8, I would be forced to drop James Starks for a spot starter so any ideas on how to get him in the deal?

I am not quite sure why you want Julio Jones so bad with his current injury and I think you trying to over pay for him. Definitely do not give up DHB for Jones because DHB is better than him. I would try offering Morris and Rice for Jones.

I think it could work. Hes going to like getting the best handcuff and Sydney Rice had those 2 good weeks with Tavaris. I would talk up how Tavaris is coming back and see if he'll bite.

Can you help me? viewtopic.php?t=505576

Actually meant in the original post trying Rice and or Mannigham, and not giving up DHB (Woops)

Also, any thought how I would be able to incorporate James Starks into the deal? Because currently due to byes Forte/Greene/DHB/Starks are all on a bye so if I made this trade I would only have Nicks/Manningham/Torian/ (someone in FA to fill in for Morris) leaving with only 4 to start at the 5 RB/WR positions that I need to fill. Since I would be dropping Starks if I made this deal, any idea of how to incorporate him into the deal?

That should work, but it's not an offer that will get his attention. It helps him, but not a huge amount, and I don't know what Julio's prognosis is for the rest of the year is as far as matchups go. It's fair, but not exciting. Thanks for mine.

I think offering Rice and Morris would be a good idea, if he accepts you both get good deals.

I would try the Rice/Morris combo for Julio and see what happens. He does need some help at RB right now and Morris would make sense to him with Best. However, you are leaving him somewhat thin (talent wise) at WR, so he might not go for it. I would say it really depends on what he thinks he can get off the waiver.

Help on mine?

Jones is hurt right now. If he comes back, he may play well, but Manningham may also solve your problem. Plus, DHB is coming along nicely this year and with a bye week to practice with Palmer, I can see him scoring double digits a lot.

IDK...I love Jones, but I really think the Falcons are gonna start to run the ball more and not become a pass happy team.

RB/ LeGarrette Blount , LeSean McCoy, Demarco Murray
WR/ Anqaun Boldin, Santonio Holmes, Brandon Marshall, Mario Manningham
KICKER / Falcons

What's on the waiver wire? I can't say I like the idea of trading for an injured, inconsistent rookie despite the potential.
