Would you do this trade?

Postby skylord4488 » Tue Aug 28, 2012 4:59 pm

My current QB is Cutler... should I give up Jimmy Graham for Roddy White and Russell Wilson??

As much as I like Wilson I would pass. I think White will lose a lot of targets to Julio Jones. Wilson is not a sure thing yet so you would be paying for his ceiling which he probably will not reach this season.

I'll need to see the rest of your roster. I would however, more than likely not make this trade. I like the upside of Wilson, but I don't think that merits trading Graham for White. I've turned into a broken record but Graham gives you WR1 production. In a majority of leagues, only one or two other TEs will be able to make that claim this year with the rest giving you WR3 production or worse. Being able to start a WR1 in a spot where your opponent is forced to start a WR3 gives you a distinct advantage. I'm in the camp that urges people to grab and keep a top 5 TE this year.

No way, Graham has massive upside, and White is still splitting his receptions with Julio.

Help with mine?

I would make the Brown and Olsen trade if you could but would still pass on this trade. I think you can get quite a bit more for Graham.

If you could pull that off, it was an absolute guarantee then It is debatable. You have to ask yourself.

How much better off would you be with Roddy in your flex (technically Colston but I'll say Roddy for these purposes) over D.Brown?

Do you have the depth at RB to let go of D.Brown?

How much of a downgrade is Hernandez from Graham?

Personally, the deal breaker for me here, regardless of projections, is you would hurt your RB depth too much for what would possibly be a marginal upgrade. It would however, be a substantial upgrade if Hernadez finished #2 this year. It's possible, and I'm personally predicting he outscores Gronk, but I don't think it's worth the risk.
