TRADE Trade Forte/Palmer for Eli/Turner ?

Postby Captain Eddie » Fri Aug 31, 2012 4:04 pm

We just did our draft on Wednesday and just received this trade proposal:

His Eli Manning and Michael Turner for my Carson Palmer and Matt Forte.

Our scoring is a bit fuzzy...Standard non-PPR but we have team defense, LB and DB as well.

Below are our teams.

I am tempted since I think Eli provides better depth and might even be better than Shaub. Even though I picked Forte over Turner, I think they are pretty even. Thoughts? I am not shy about a counter-offer.

QB Matt Schaub (Hou - QB)
WR Julio Jones (Atl - WR)
WR Antonio Brown (Pit - WR)
RB Matt Forte (Chi - RB)
RB Ahmad Bradshaw (NYG - RB)
TE Jimmy Graham (NO - TE)
W/R Eric Decker (Den - WR)
K Garrett Hartley (NO - K)
DEF Denver (Den - DEF)
DB Tyvon Branch (Oak - S)
LB Luke Kuechly (Car - LB)
BN Kevin Smith (Det - RB)
BN Titus Young (Det - WR)
BN Carson Palmer (Oak - QB)
BN Kyle Rudolph (Min - TE)
BN Kendall Hunter (SF - RB)
BN Alshon Jeffery (Chi - WR)
BN Ryan Williams (Ari - RB)

QB Eli Manning (NYG - QB)
WR Roddy White (Atl - WR)
WR Percy Harvin (Min - WR)
RB Arian Foster (Hou - RB)
RB Michael Turner (Atl - RB)
TE Brandon Pettigrew (Det - TE)
W/R Stevie Johnson (Buf - WR)
K Matt Prater (Den - K)
DEF Green Bay (GB - DEF)
DB Yeremiah Bell (NYJ - S)
LB James Laurinaitis (StL - LB)
BN Alex Smith (SF - QB)
BN Jonathan Stewart (Car - RB)
BN Dustin Keller (NYJ - TE)
BN Michael Crabtree (SF - WR)
BN Danny Woodhead (NE - RB)
BN Buffalo (Buf - DEF)
BN Pat Angerer (Ind - LB)

I would pass. Forte is a solid running back especially in PPR. I think Turner wheels will finally fall off this season. The Falcons are moving to a pass heavy offense with Julio Jones and White so Turner will lose touches.
Thanks Franchise Fan for the sig!

Easy pass. Eli is a top 10 stud (who must don't really think much of but he is very veyr solid. You need to get Eli but not at that price. Ridiculous overpay).
