I need help. I'm in a 14 person Keeper league (can keep two players on your team - maximum of three years...ie after you have kept a person twice you have to return him to the pool of players after the third year). At the moment I am in 8th place (5-5) and just a game out of 6th place (top six make playoffs) with three weeks to go before the playoffs. I have both Tom Brady and Cam Newton as my quarterbacks (drafted both of them this year so both are in their first year of keeper eligibility). The trade deadline is this Friday for my league and I am contemplating trading Cam Newton. A few people said I should trade Brady but I don't think I could do that (Hell look at my screen name!). I have holes on my team and need to fill them and I figure that since I wouldn't be keeping Cam Newton at the end of the year that I should try and get something for him particularly since someone I would trade him to would be able to keep him for two more seasons after this one if they wanted to.
I am not worried about K, Def or TE....just the WR and RB positions. Presently I have Manningham, Jordy Nelson, Torry Smith, Lance Moore and Miles Austin as WR's and DeMarco Murray, Blount, Kendall Hunter, and Peyton Hillis as RB's. I am thinking that if I trade Newton, I should try and get a RB and a WR to add to my team.
I have two people I thik would want a QB (the other teams have really good QBs) -
1) One team has ALex Smith as QB (so he def would want an upgrade) - he has Harvin, Bess, Robinson (Dallas), and Colston as WR's and Greene (NYJ), Jacobs (NYG), McFadden and James Starks as RB....He is also 2-8 and has no chance of making playoffs so he might be wanting to upgrade and prepare for next year.
2) Other team has Matt Moore and Jackson (Sea) as QB's - his players are Bryant, Welker, Gaffney and Nate Washington as WRs and Fred Jackson, Reece (Oak), MCcluster, and Felix Jones as RBs. He is 6-4 and is in 5th place and I do play him in two weeks.
What should i do?? Should I trade Newton and if so to which team and for what?? The other option is do I trade Newton for someone's first round pick next year instead of players. I need to fill holes now but not sure if planning for next year is a better option....PLEASE HELP!
