Witten for Fitzgerald WHIR

Postby lordficron » Wed Nov 16, 2011 5:14 pm

I'm considering trading away Jason Witten for Larry Fitzgerald to shore up my WRs in my PPR league

Currently using Greg Jennings and Antonio Brown as 2 of my 3 weekly starters, with that third spot being filled by one of the following:
Michael Crabtree
Kevin Walter
Davonne Bess
Michael Jenkins

I have Brandon Pettigrew who could step in at TE; he's a definite step down from Witten, though.

I imagine I'll probably have to sweeten the pot for him to accept the trade, though he is at the bottom of our league

Honestly, I'd sit still. You are getting solid production from Jennings and Brown in 2 of 3 WR spots. I like letting my WR3 be a high-reward kind of player and play matchups, but only if I have a top 5 TE, which you do, in Witten. I'd sit still. I feel that you can get solid production from Bess and Crabtree, especailly in a PPR.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Tough decision imo. I would probably do it solely because of how attractive starting Jennings, Fitz, and Antonio on a weekely basis would be. I'm also a fan of Pettigrew so take my advice with a grain of salt :-D
