Trade WR for RB?

Postby tuffgong71 » Sat Sep 01, 2012 8:56 pm

Great forum! You guys saved me last year. Anyway, I am pretty happy with my draft but I guess I am weak at RB and strong at WR. I have two offers, should I make a move?

12 Team League (Standard non-ppr scoring except QBs get 6pts for TD pass instead of 4)

MY TEAM
QB Rodgers
RB A.Peterson, D. Brown, Hightower (Released by Was this week)
WR Welker, S. Smith, Colston, D. Jackson, T. Young, G. Little, M. Williams, Kendall Wright
TE A. Hernandez

TRADE PARTNER #1
QB Eli
RB S. Jackson, MJD, Hillis, P. Thomas
WR B. Lloyd, Harvin, A. Brown, Hankerson, D. Bess
TE J. Cook

I send Welker/Brown and get back S. Jackson/Hankerson
or
I send Welker/Brown/T.Young for S.Jackson/Hankerson/P.Thomas

TRADE PARTNER #2
QB RG III, Rivers
RB Rice, D.Murray, F.Jackson
WR S.Johnson, D.Bryant, P.Garcon, J.Blackmon
TE Gresham, Keller

I send Welker/Brown for D.Murray/Garcon

Do I need either of these? Keep looking? What do the experts think?

In non-PPR I would make the trade with Murray. I like trading a top wide receiver for a top running back this season because of the depth at wide receiver. I do not like the first two trades as much because I think you can get a better piece than Hankerson.

I very much like the deal that involves you getting Murray and Garcon as well. TBH with Hernandez getting the extension and the recent news of NE signing Salas, I'm more down on Welker than most. I do like Brown this year as a RB3 with decent upside, but I'm half expecting rookie Vick Ballard to get a decent amount of touches by years end. Murray, although risky, is the key to this deal due to upside and Garcon is a WR3 with WR2 potential. Take the trade for sure.

As always, this is the place to come for good advice. I took the Murray trade and I am very happy. Thanks, Gentlemen.
