Dump Greene for Witten?

Postby mjedwards409 » Sun Sep 09, 2012 8:47 pm

So I posted about something similar this morning, but a lot has changed since then. I originally was trying to put together a trade for Antonio Gates. (This guy is carrying Gronk/Gates/Witten, but is uber weak at RB. We ended up not getting a deal done when he declined my offer this morning, so Greene stayed on my bench. I let him know I'd probably do a Greene/Witten trade if he was interested. Well, FF to now. FJax is my RB1 and as we saw he went down. Plus Greene had a decent fantasy outing. (90+ yards and a TD) About 30 minutes ago he offered me Witten for Greene. I declined this trade for now, because I may need Greene if FJax misses some time. Was I smart to turn this down, at least for the time being?

Should I try to re-propose my Gates for Greene offer? He needs a starting back so bad, and Gates won't come off his bench unless Gronk goes down, BYE week, etc. Honestly, even if he was willing to give Gates I think that would put me too thin at RB.

My Roster:
QB-Brady
RB-Fred Jackson, BJGE, Kevin Smith, Shonn Greene, Kendall Hunter, Ryan Williams
WR-Roddy White, Percy Harvin, Torrey Smith, Doug Baldwin, Kendall Wright, Pierre Garcon
TE-Owen Daniels
DST - Jets / K-Bironas

His Roster
QB-Cutler
RB-Turner, Helu, Pierre Thomas, Ronnie Hillman
WR-Megatron, Nicks, Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams, Boldin
TE-Gronk, Gates, Witten
DST - Lions / K- Hartley

I don't think you have any choice but to keep Greene for now. The small upgrade at TE does not make up for the weak set of RBs you have.
