MJD owner: Help me trade for an RB2/RB3

Postby V » Wed Aug 29, 2012 10:06 pm

2 RB, 3 WR, no flex, standard non-PPR scoring. I need a fill in RB2 for MJD for weeks 1-3 or whatever, and I have a potential trading partner who spent a ton of picks on RBs but has awful WR depth.

I'd love to pull a VJax-->Garcon with me landing one of McGahee/Brown/Benson and giving up Spiller, Royster, or Collie, if possible, but have no idea what a fair offer really would be.

As a separate consideration, he's shown interest in dealing for my MJD headache. Should I try to get Lynch for him and a WR upgrade?
_____________

Me:
QB: Romo, Luck, Locker, Wilson
RB: Charles, MJD, Spiller, Royster
WR: Bryant, Harvin, VJax, Britt, Collie
TE: Rudolph

_____________

Him:
QB: Rodgers, Smith
RB: Lynch, Fred Jackson, McGahee, D.Brown, Benson, J.Rodgers
WR: D.Moore, Garcon, Cobb, Amendola
TE: Celek

How deep is your league? Who is left as a FA?

If you're looking to get a good solid RB2, trading might not be the only way. Kevin Smith has Detroit's running game all to himself until week 3 or 4 and he's solid. Doug Martin for Tampa is due for a very, VERY impressive season, as the fumble happy Blount has worn out his role as a starting RB. Toby Gerherdt (spelling?) from Min. would be an amazing back if the injury-prone AP goes down. There are other options that involve you keeping MJD, which is ideal no matter how weeks 1-4 look.

Also, here's another thought - are you sold on Charles? You know Hillis will be the definition of a touchdown vulture this season, so why not wait on on MJD who has the ability to melt your face, and trade Jamaal Charles away?

Beast Mode wouldn't be a bad pickup. He has proven time and time again he is a solid and trustworthy RB, with the ability to pull of HUGE plays.

Don't feel bad about trading away V Jax now. Use his reputation from last season as an incentive. He will not produce numbers like that this season, you can bet on it.

12 teamer, everyone you named was drafted by the 9th round (out of 16). I tried trading for Martin with MJD (and other pieces), but the Martin owner (who has Jennings) hates MJD this year.

With MJD reporting, I'll prolly just stick it out for a few weeks.
