Rookie Trade Advice

Postby TWW » Wed Nov 02, 2011 7:43 pm

Greetings from across the pond. This is my first season playing fantasy football so I would appreciate a bit of advice on a trade.

It is a standard head to head league. We must start a 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 RB/WR, 1 K, 1 DEF

My roster is

QB - Matthew Stafford & Cam Newton
RB - Chris Johnson, Frank Gore, Peyton Hillis & Beanie Wells
WR - Larry Fitzgerald, Roddy White, Steve Smith (Carolina), Miles Austin & Victor Cruz
TE - Antonio Gates & Tony Gonzalez

I want to strengthen my running backs and get rid of Chris Johnson. I would like to get either Matt Forte or Arian Foster (both owned by the same guy).

His roster is

QB - Ben Roethlisberger & Philip Rivers
RB - Matt Forte, Arian Foster, DeAngelo Williams & Brandon Jacobs
WR - Wes Welker, Marques Colston, Mario Manningham & Austin Collie
TE - Rob Gronkowski & Brandon Pettigrew

I was thinking of giving him Chris Johnson and Miles Austin/Peyton Hillis. Darren Sproles is currently a free agent so I am looking to add him to my roster aswell. Any help would be appreciated.

I think thats a great idea, rid of Johnson and and go for foster first. You are fairly deep in wr so go for it.

you can try. but being a forte owner i wouldn't accept this deal. Giving up a top 5 RB for 3 under achieving players doesn't make sense. You may be better off trying to pick up sproles.
