got offered a trade mjd and gronk for mcfadden help!!

Postby rderickson9 » Wed Aug 22, 2012 7:48 pm

Hey guys,

As you may know, MJD is in a little pickle right now for some fantasy owners. Today i was offered a trade that sends mjd and gronk my way for Darren Mcfadden. Right away I thought this was excellent for me. But The jags and MJD are no where close to a deal, and Mcfads stock is rising about every week. I would like to see what you guys think about this trade.

My team

QB - P. Manning, fitzpatrick
RBs- Mcfadden, forte, D. Martin, Donald brown, mike goodson
Wrs- R. White, A.j. Green, Antonio brown, Vincent brown, titus young
TEs- B. celek, M. Bennett

Considering I'd take Gronk over McFadden in the first place, this seems like a no-brainer with MJD involved.

Might as well post this here since I think you double posted. I believe you can delete the other one.

This looks like an extremely solid trade, but I would not feel safe trading for MJD unless I held his handcuff, Jennings. Sure DMC is a huge injury risk but with all the latest news coming out of the camp, where they are planning on using him in all facets of the game, he has a good shot at finishing the year as the #1 RB. BTW, which TE's are on your WW? I feel like you could improve upon that spot without having to make this trade unless this is an extremely deep league.

Also, Gronk will undoubtedly regress this year, of course, it happens every year after a TE scores double digit TDs. It's not sustainable.

I just picked up jennings off WW. Surprisingly he was still there. What are your thoughts now on the trade?

Jennings was on your WW? Madness. Make the trade. If I knew DMC was going to play all 16 games this year I actually wouldn't, but since I'm a rational human being, I can't logically tell you to turn this down.

If you have Jennings, then I would make this trade. You get a huge upgrade at TE, and until MJD returns to form, you can rely on Forte/Martin/Jennings to hold down the RB and D. Brown to play the FLEX.
