Trade proposal - am I MISSING something?

Postby ansonwilson » Mon Aug 27, 2012 10:24 am

Hi Guys,

I had a weak draft for a 12 team PPR league. Here are my players:

QB Matt Ryan, Atl QB Draft
RB Fred Jackson, Buf RB Draft
RB Rashad Jennings, Jac RB Draft
WR Greg Jennings, GB WR Draft
WR Demaryius Thomas, Den WR Draft
TE Antonio Gates, SD TE Draft
FLEX Reggie Wayne, Ind WR Draft
D/ST Bills D/ST D/ST Draft
K Garrett Hartley, NO K Draft
Bench Torrey Smith, Bal WR Draft
Bench Joe Flacco, Bal QB Draft
Bench Jason Witten, Dal TE Q Draft
Bench Jermaine Gresham, Cin TE Q Draft
Bench Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buf QB Draft
Bench Mike Williams, FA WR Draft
Bench Doug Baldwin, Sea WR Q Draft

Got this offer today:

Send Demaryius Thomas, Den WR
Send Reggie Wayne, Ind WR
Send Jason Witten, Dal TE
Receive Steve Smith, Car WR f
Receive Steve Johnson, Buf WR
Receive Ben Roethlisberger, Pit QB

Am I missing something? Looks like a pretty good deal. This guy seems to really want Demaryius Thomas.

Thanks in advance! Look forward to getting involved on the boards!

The trade is alright, I would try and get a RB instead of Roethlisberger

I'd actually turn this offer down. Your weakness is RB and your strength is your wr's and te's. I would hope the MJD continues his hold out, Jennings gets the starts and Witten gets back. once Witten gets back and is healthy then you have more leverage in trades. I'd stick with what you have for now and then look at a RB and not a wr swap. Good luck.

There's no reason to roster two let alone three QBs and you want to receive another in a trade? You need to re-evalute your bench here first. There needs to be AT LEAST four RBs sitting on your bench at all times, especially with your lack of depth.
