I drafted Brady and Newton..Help! Should I trade 1?

Postby mnunez721 » Wed Sep 05, 2012 10:41 am

So stupidly.... maybe smartly... I didn't realize I had picked Brady in the first round, and I picked Newton in the third. I've never been in this kind of situation, what would you do?

The way I see it here are my options:
1.) I can keep both so that I do not give my opponents the luxury of having a guy who could single handedly win any game any week.
2.) I can keep both until one gets injured, then trade the injured QB away to someone who might want him later when he gets better. That way I dont trade one too early and wind up with the injured QB.
3.) I can Trade one of them NOW and get a superstar.
4.) I can wait and see how they preform and trade accordingly.
5.) I can wait until after their Bye Week to trade them so that I can always have a 25+ point QB.

Relevant INFO:
My League has 8 teams.
It is a standard ESPN league. (25yards passing, 4pts TD)(10yards rushing/catching, 6pts TD)
1 QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1RB/WR, 1TE, 1K, 1D

I'm Not asking you to analyze my Roster or anything, I'm really just wondering what the best thing to do with Brady and Newton would be in your mind.
Roster:
QB:
Tom Brady
Cam Newton

RB:
Darren McFadden
Doug Martin
Rashad Jennings
Shonn Green
Beanie Wells
Donald Brown

WR:
Julio Jones
Hakeem Nicks
Malcolm Floyd
Miles Austin

TE:
Antonio Gates
Fred Davis

D: Steelers
K: Hartley

Definitely trade one of them now for a superstar. You're only hurting yourself more than others because you are benching a player you drafted in the 3rd round every week. You're intentionally giving up 3rd round caliber production each week by keeping both.

I'd definitely try to deal Cam to a team for a 2nd/3rd round type WR or RB. I like Cam, I just think it will be hard for him to repeat last season's success, primarily because of the rushing TDs. If you are a big believer in him, then deal Brady for a 1st round RB or Calvin Johnson. But I'd keep Brady if I were you. He will be a rock for you every week and Cam should fetch you a great player.

The only problem with trading right away, is that I'm in an 8 team league. So most teams are pretty solid at QB as is. Can anyone think of some good players who would be a fair trade for Newton? Basically regardless of what other players people have, what are some names you would like to see in return for trading Cam Newton?
