Sproles for Amendola/Benson?

Postby LosAngelesChargers » Mon Sep 03, 2012 12:52 am

My WR's are weak, although I have some lottery tickets on my bench. I'm inclined to stand pat for a few weeks and see if anyone pans out for me. This trade offer just came up. My instinct is to decline, but wanted to run it by all you fine people.

I give: Sproles

I get: Amendola, Benson

12 Team PPR League
1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex (RB/WR/TE)

My Team:
QB: Newton, Luck
RB: Rice, Sproles, R. Bush
WR: S. Smith (Car), Manningham, Little, M. Williams (TB), Wright, Hankerson
TE: Gates, Pettigrew

His Team:
QB: Ryan, Dalton
RB: Forte, S. Jackson, Hillis, M. Bush, Benson
WR: Marshall, Amendola, T. Young, D. Thomas, Floyd
TE: Hernandez

Let me know what you think, whir. Thanks!

I'd pass. Sproles is a beast in PPR. I wouldn't give him for 2 question marks.

Lend a hand?

Agreed, I would pass on that deal. Although Amendola is a beast in PPR formats as well.

Agree with above that I'd pass. As mentioned, Sproles is a PPR beast (he took me to a championship in my 0.5 PPR league last year), while Benson will probably be pretty much non-existent in the passing game (it's already been said he's not the third-down option). I think Amendola is a sleeper, but definitely not enough of one to make up for what you're losing in Sproles. Plus, with this trade, your opponents RB corps becomes stacked.
(0.5 PPR, 12-team league)
QB: Vick, RG3
RB: McFadden, Matthews, K. Smith, R. Williams, M. Goodson
WR: Nicks, S. Smith, Britt, LaFell
TE: Hernandez, Pitta
K: Bironas
DEF: Spot start (Cin in wk4)
