LLoyd for Matthews?

Postby wattytoohotty3 » Mon Sep 03, 2012 9:14 am

I have been offered Ryan Matthews for Brandon Lloyd in 10 team PPR format. I know Matthews is risky with huge upside, but I also have Ronnie Brown, and I am nervous about Lloyd's touches in the Patriot's offense. Here is my team:

QB:Rodgers, Cutler
WR:Wallace, VJAX, Lloyd, Demarius Thomas (Flex), Amendola (Bench)
RB: Demarco, Fred Jackson, Bench: J Stew , K. Wilson, R. Brown, D'Angelo
TE: T. Gonzalez

Thoughts?

Welcome to the Cafe ;-D
I would make the trade. Mathews still can be a top 10 running back even though he will miss the first couple games.

Thanks Franchise Fan for the sig!

Thanks. Would you make this move for Wallace as well?

I'd probably take it as well. It still leaves you with Wallace, VJax, and D. Thomas as startable receivers while giving you (as mentioned) a potential top-10 RB in return in addition to your Murray and FJax.
(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)

Agreed. Matthews could be a beast for the entire second half of the season. Lloyd has obvious upside, but I'd take Matthews hands down.

Lend a hand?
