Dynasty - trade QB/RB for TRichardson?

Postby ThePrez » Thu Jul 05, 2012 11:35 am

In my dynasty league (entering our 5th season) we have a 3 round mini draft. The team with #1 pick is looking for QB/RB combo for the pick. Mini draft is mainly for all the rookies and whatever was left on FA market at end of last season. We keep all players except 3 each year.

Which QB and RB would you feel comfortable letting go for Richardson? Cam is off the table, so he could have pick of my backup QBs. Is there a QB/RB combo that you wouldn't trade for TRich?

Standard Yahoo scoring plus 0.5 PPR
Standard Yahoo roster plus RB/WR flex

My team -

Cam Newton
Philip Rivers
Eli Manning

Adrian Peterson
Darren McFadden
Chris Johnson
Rashard Mendenhall
Ryan Williams
Kevin Smith

Andre Johnson
Greg Jennings
Jeremy Maclin
Mike Williams (TB)
Laurent Robinson
Jacoby Ford

Jason Witten
Greg Olsen

New York Jets Def

Thanks!!!

I hate the rookie gamble, but your roster looks really good, and I understand your wanting to try to trade for him.

I'd probably give up Rivers and a RB, and I'd offer RunDMC first because he loves to get injured.

Where do you pick if you don't do this trade? I think I'd rather grab a Doug Martin or David Wilson than trading away the depth you have. You have pretty deep RB play and don't need to overpay for it. I think he's not going to take Williams, Mendenhall or Smith and you'd be overpaying with any of your other backs if a QB is involved as well.

I pick #10... so Martin will be gone. Not sure when Wilson will end up going.

Having Cam helps to unload either Rivers or Eli (and at this point I almost rank them the same) but I know I will have to give up a proven RB in the league.

Guess I will see what he asks for... but I just wanted to get some thoughts ahead of time.

Thanks!

I would let go of Adrian Peterson and Eli Manning. This is the last year to trade AP with him being twenty seven years old if you want to get solid value for him.

This. Perfect time to move AP. I expect a down year this year(injury and underperforming), and then 2-3 more solid seasons after that. Trent isn't proven yet, and I believe this will be the lowest his value will be, atleast for the next few years. I would try Eli or Rivers + AP. And enjoy having Trent for years to come.

Help me?

I think a lot of people underestimate Adrian Peterson, and I'd give serious thought to it before you join the hype.

I think a lot of people expect too much from Adrian Peterson. He will start the year on the PUP list (Vikings won't admit he's not ready till just before the season starts) and then he won't be 100% the whole year. And no 50% AP isn't better than every other RB(have heard many people say exactly that). He'll be 28 going into next season, and I believe he will bounceback to elite form again for 2 or 3 more seasons, but the age is a huge factor. There is a risk that Trent will bust but he is only 20, and I will take the risk. The upside of 10 years with Trent Richardson > the safe factor of 3 with AP IMO. Including Eli or Rivers into the trade is nothing. Cam + either of them is fine, and your really don't lose anything there.
