What do you think? Trade Jimmy Graham ($5 salary) for Cam Newton ($2 salary)?

redraft (auction format, able to keep 3 players with total salary of $10 or less)
PPR
bonus for 100 yards receiving and 300 yards passing
-1 for INT's
-1 for fumbles lost

Unless you need to free up those 3 dollars I wouldn't.

Knowing what we know, I'm keeping Graham.

Thank you for the feedback. I guess more info would have been helpful but I tried to keep it simple.

The short story is I have Ryan Mathews as a $6 dollar keeper so I can't keep him and Graham at $5 due to a $10 keeper salary limit. I figured getting Newton for Graham was a better option than having Graham go back to the player pool without anything in return for him.

You could argue I should keep Graham over Mathews but that's a different debate I suppose.

Thanks again for the feedback I appreciate it.

If that's the case, I'd do the trade, if there's nobody else you want to keep. Locking up your RB and QB lets you pick more freely in the draft than just having that RB locked up.

With the 10 dollar limit, then make the trade. Mathews and Newton for under 10 dollars will be great value moving forward.

I do the trade. This gets you 2 top 5 guys at QB and RB. Otherwise you only get 1 stud keeper that we know of. Great value for each of them. Would you be able to keep them next year at the same price?

Get Cam and keep him with Mathews, it's better than throwing Graham back in the pool for nothing like you said.
