Trading Newton or Rodgers... Def need some insight WHIR 100%

Postby blatini609 » Tue Nov 08, 2011 10:46 pm

Long time no see cafe. Seems i found myself in a (much better than usual) pickle in one of my leagues. I have both Rodgers and Newton, and now that Rodgers is done with his bye I have been shopping one of the two around. Unfortunately nobody with RB's is willing to bite on a trade. Only team that's responded has been someone with WR's, here's how it looks

12 team standard yahoo scoring league. QB 2WR 2RB 1TE 1W/R 1K 1DST 1IDP

My team:
QB: Rodgers Newton
WR: Boldin, Bowe, Percy Harvin
RB: Gore, Blount, Starks, Moreno, Ben Tate
TE: Tony G
K: Hanson
DST: Cincy, Detroit
IDP: Angerer

His-
QB: Hasselbeck, Freeman
WR: Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson, Jennings, Mario Manningham, Victor Cruz
RB: Beanie, Michael Bush, BJGE
TE: Chandler
etc etc

I'd ideally go for a RB, but this guy is loaded at WR that I can deal with. Right now the deal on the table is Newton for Jennings, which I think is fair. I might be overthinking this, but since I'm confident that I'm getting into the playoffs in third at this point, I was debating trading Rodgers for a WR. Maybe Rodgers for Johnson and Victor Cruz? The fact Green Bay is 8-0 scares me a lot. Rodgers has carried my team, but he could also drop it dead when it counts the most. Newton is going to be playing the year out and he's looked consistent enough that I'm actually THINKING about it. I haven't decided if I'm completely retarded or a genius yet, hoping you guys can point me in the right direction.

As always though thanks for reading and leave links. Starters, trades, whatever. I'll gladly help in return.

People may think I'm crazy too but I'd roll with CAM trade Rodgers and make the best of the trade. I'd try and get AJ and Cruz out of the deal. He'd be getting a "combo" QB WR.

Good Luck

Don't even think about touching Rodgers. Trade Newton for sure, Rodgers is doing magical things and his consistency has been spot on. I wouldn't want to trade him with the momentum he has now and he doesn't look like he'll be stopping any time soon.

Help with mine?

Hmmm, wow. I definitely see your point on the Rodgers end-of-season issue. But, I don't think you can trade away the MVP (both NFL and fantasy) just for that. I would deal Newton, try to get the best WR you can (any word on when AJ is coming back?).

Thanks for the help with mine.

I'd trade Newton and really stress his point total. Rodgers is automatic and untouchable, in my opinion. Just make sure you pick up Matt Flynn in case GB has home field locked up by week 14. Not sure which WR you should ask for. AJ has been dinged up and his offense is more run heavy, however, he's the only guy in Houston. GB is pass happy, but Rodgers spreads the ball out. Maybe package Cam and Boldin for two of Jennings, Johnson and Fitz.

i'd trade newton, don't settle for only one WR in return, at least get jennings / Andre Johnson plus victor cruz. Even that I think is favorable to the other owner but it fits your needs.
