Trade help needed. Get RB depth and give up a little?

Postby MarkarenMarkaren » Sat Sep 01, 2012 9:11 pm

12 team 0.5 ppr with starting qb, 2rb, 3wr, te, k, def. standard scoring.

I have ...

Flacco (I know....waited to draft qb)

Foster
Lynch

Roddy White
Decker
Lloyd

Olsen

Bench: Fitzpatrick, gerhart, tate, Ryan Williams, Torrey Smith, wayne

I was wanting depth at RB. Been offered turner, greene for Lloyd and lynch. He would actually take any of my WR except he can't have Roddy.

I have depth at WR so I can afford and want to trade WR to get RB. He needs WR but wants a RB in return. Am I giving up too much? I tried offering Lloyd for Greene but he won't do it.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Welcome to the Cafe ;-D
I would not do any of those trades. Greene is not a good back and will lose red zone looks to Tebow this season. Turner is also on the decline. I think your running back depth is fine as well.

Thank you. Any suggestions on improving by trading what I have? Should I drop someone for Turbin to handcuff Lynch?

I have to agree with 11stever11, any way you work that deal it doesn't seem like it's in your best interest. I wouldn't panic over Gerhart/Tate as depth and you're downgrading a lot from Lynch to Turner/Greene. Stick with what you have or look for a better trade.

So it is not worth getting Greene for any one of my WR? Just keep what I have or look for better trade?

I'd think about Lloyd for Greene but you already said that was a no go. Decker is a tough call. Personally, I probably would look for a better trade than that but I wouldn't blame you for doing it. Roddy is obviously a no.

He has said no for one-on-one trade but I will keep pushing and tru to convince him if folks think it is fair.

You definitely do have the depth with T.Smith and R.Wayne on your bench, very nice WR corp. I would however, not trade for Greene. Take it from a Jets fan, the dude is a middling talent. See if there are any other RBs you can target, ones in which the .5 PPR matter.

Should I drop someone to get Turbin? If so, who? Fitzpatrick?
