Welker keeper Trade

Postby snixx79 » Sun Aug 26, 2012 11:18 pm

12 team H2H standard scoring NON PPR, we keep 8 players each year, and have a 12 rd FA/rookie draft.

I just had my draft, my keepers were; Big Ben/Charles/DMac/JStew/Ridley/Welker/J.Nelson/Baldwin

After the draft, my team looked as follows:

DMac/Charles/JStew/Ridley/Quizz Rodgers
Giants DSTS

The trade is my Welker/Quizz Rodgers/3rd rd pick
Damarius Thomas/Spiller/2nd rd pick.

I get younger, and i move Welker which i have been trying to do. I love Quizz, but Spiller is about a wash IMO.

Thoughts? WHIR!

I like the trade. I think it is time to move Welker if you have him. Lloyd will certainly get some targets this year and if NE doesn't resign Welker he goes back to just being an "average" WR on another team. He was nothing spectacular in Miami that's for sure. NE made him what he is. Spiller finished off the season well in Fred Jackson's absence, and as good as FJ did last year, he's still old. Quizz and Spiller are both only potentially going to see some serious time this year due to a starter's injury, so I'd take Thomas over Welker and hope that Spiller shows some value later on. Especially since this is a keeper league.

Help with mine?
