Trade Foster for AP and Charles?

Postby mattdelight » Mon Mar 05, 2012 9:54 am

Was just offered a trade in my 10 team ppr dynasty league.

I send Arian Foster and Antonio Brown

for

Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles

I love Foster, even more with the recent news of his new 5 year deal. But can I pass on this offer? Brown has the opportunity to be a #1 WR if Wallace moves on. But those two ACL torn RBs are scary.

The guy also has Toby Gerhart so I should be able to work him into the mix as a little bit of AP insurance but I don't know.

Roster:
QB: Roethlisberger, Fitzpatrick, Palmer
WR: Wes Welker, Colston, Antonio Brown, Manningham, Doug Baldwin, Jacoby Ford
RB: Foster, Gore, Hillis, J.Stew, Benson, Ben Tate, Rashad Jennings
TE: Jimmy Graham, Celek

It depends on the level of risk you are willing to take on. IF AP and Charles both make it back relatively intact, you probably end up with the better end of the deal. But that's obviously a HUGE "if". You are need of a quality 2nd RB.

I would counter the offer with either a lesser WR than Brown (who I like a lot coming into 2012) or to get a draft pick out of it as well as Gerheart.

Well first you have to look at the two players your getting back. Charles has had one big year, he injured his knee in the first week or two last year, so he should be all the way back. AP was hurt late and could potentially start the season on the pup list and ,iss the first 6 weeks. So long term I like this move and you have Gore on your roster also. As good as Foster is I think I'm doing this deal. Good luck.

I would pass on the deal mainly due to you giving up Brown who I really like. He has top 15 upside especially in PPR. Also I have seen quite a few mock drafts that have Trent Richardson going to the Chiefs so if he falls I am sure the Chiefs will take him. For that reason I would wait on this deal since you don't want to get stuck in that situation.

A big no from me. Huge risk(too much) involved in getting AP and Charles in return. If trading Foster I would look to get something more sure in the deal
