potential blockbuster trade, should i do it?

Postby jbusch55 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 8:51 am

I have a potential blockbuster trade on my hands and I'm hesitant to pull the trigger

I have Ray Rice and RG3 and the deal is for Matt Ryan and Beast Mode

Now mind you that my Qb situation is a dire one because I waited to long and ended up with RG3 as my starter, Ryan would be awesome because I have Julio Jones and my Rb depth is nice with Doug Martin, P. Hillis and Ryan Williams.

But I feel Ray Rice is just to valuable, what do you guys think

Bro, I think u could get Ryan/Lynch for Rice straight up! Decent offer BUT you could get better.

Rice is WAY too valuable for that trade. Ryan is nice and I like him this year but he won't be head and shoulders above Rg3 so why do it if your giving up rice. You could get a decent qb for a lot less than that.

Thanks, I actually got a different trade proposal by the same person

RG3 and Jimmy Graham for Ryan and Tony G

This one intrigues me since tony G is still decent and I would have Ryan, Tony G and Julio Jones, what you think?

No thanks to that trade as well. The difference in value is big when it come to the TE's you mentioned. Graham will produce like a top WR. I've never been big on tony, so i may be biased. When did you take graham? 2nd or 3rd round? Why wouldnt you have taken Ryan in that spot? You know why, because he's not worth it and neither is gonzo at this stage.

Is Ryan the top qb for the other team you are trading with, what's the rest of HIS roster look like?

I took Graham in rnd 2 and Julio Jones in round 3, I was targeting Ryan in round 5 but he went in round 4 before I picked, then i waited untill the 10th round because I saw I was the only one who didnt pick a Qb so I figured I could get good value of course as the draft was snaking back to me 5 guys picked their backup qbs in Manning, roethlisberger, schaub, Cutler and Flacco so I was actually thankful I got RG3 but I really wanted Manning in the 10th.

Anyway the person trading me has no back up qbs so Ryan was his only option to trade
