PPR league early draft.. trade question

Postby Bherman13 » Sun Jun 10, 2012 1:13 pm

14 team PPR first year keeper league. I've been offered Meachem and Bradshaw for Fitzgerald. Originally I said no way Jose, but it looks like the trade actually favors me a projected 24.23 points during the season. Should I take it? Before you laugh I know how thin I am at RB. But I had the 14th overall pick, and all the good ones were already off the board.

QB- Romo
WR- Fitz
WR- Marshall
WR- Harvin
RB- Martin
RB- Starks
TE- Tamme
Flex- Antonio Brown
K- Hanson
DEF- Arizona
Bench- Dalton, Randle, Pead, Scott, Olsen

his team
QB-Stafford
WR- Wallace
WR- Meachem
WR- M Williams (TB)
RB- McCoy
RB- Bradshaw
TE-Gates
Flex- Tolbert
K- Akers
DEF-Chicago
Bench- Hillis, Ingram, Bradford, Manningham, Moeaki

I would not. It is too early to make a trade because you are weak at a position. Meachem has never proven himself reliable and Bradshaw has bum wheels. Enjoy your depth at WR and play the wire for a RB. They always pop up if you are paying attention

since it is a keeper league finding a RB may be hard and you are pretty bad at RB. Make sure you know what is going on with Bradshaw and if you like what you here take it. He will better than both the guys you have and meachem will probably be better than any wavier wire RB you get anyway

I agree too. You have 3 legit WRs and one that is up and coming, especially if your league counts return yards, with Antonio Brown. Just because you can "afford" to give some WR depth doesnt mean you should. RBs can be picked up all the time on the waiver wires. Also I agree with murph on his points about Meachem and Bradshaw. Martin could have a great year, and Starks doesn't have competition for his carries, just touches being in the Packers offense.

That's not enough for me to move Fitz. And as a side note, if you're set on making a deal with this guy, I like Ingram better than Bradshaw and you can probably get him for cheaper.
