Blockbuster offer: McCoy for Gore/McGahee?

Postby medium_robin » Sat Nov 12, 2011 10:37 pm

I was just offered McCoy and Lynch for Gore and McGahee. It's a 10 team 0.5PPR league. We start 2 RB and a Flex. I have Foster, Gore, McGahee and Bradshaw now. But wound up with some tough losses, so I'm in 8th place. Top 8 make the playoffs, so i just need a couple more wins to guarantee a playoff spot.

If Bradshaw comes back next week, I think I'd have a pretty scary team. If he's out for a while, I might have a problem.

Should I make the trade?

Yes, do it. McCoy is a beast. Foster and McCoy at RB you'll tear it up the rest of the way.

DO IT, since you only start 2 RBs you can roll with Foster and Mccoy for the rest of the season (cept week 11 Foster has a bye). Mccoy is better than Gore and Lynch has posted some pretty good games. (helps he is feature back) mcgahee could(unlikely) lose carries to Moreno

You definitely need to make this trade. The best thing I did was make my priority acquiring two stud backs (McCoy, Rice). A bankable 20+ each week is a nice head start to have.

If you are looking at this trade to get you into the playoffs I am not too sure - kinda a toss up b/c you upgrade one RB (McCoy over Gore) but you downgrade your flex (MaGahee over Lynch). The deciding factor for me will be playoff schedules (since you plan to make the playoffs) - which tells me you should stay put, but intepret it as you will...

Lynch (week - Team - Current Rank ESPN against the run (I know it does not factor in pass catching))
