Kevin Smith for Miles Austin

Postby dgcesq » Mon Sep 10, 2012 3:34 pm

My RBs are: McCoy, Forte, K. Smith, and D. Brown.
WRs: Julio, Fitzgerald, Harvin, D. Jackson, Floyd

Smith sat on my bench and scored 22 pts - more than my starters McCoy and Forte. However, I think Smith is injury prone and will end up splitting caries with Leshore in a few weeks. I'd probably never start him over McCoy or Forte. I think D. Brown will be the man in Indy all year. He'll probably never have great numbers, but he'll be more stable over the course of the season than Smith will - perfect for backup and bye week.

Offer is Kevin smith for either of Austin, Blackmon or R. Wayne. R. Wayne had a great weekend but I don't see him having a great season. Austin seems to the best option.

This leaves me 3 solid RBs, and I think Austin is going to be better than Desean Jackson. Am I better off after this trade?

I like Leshoure as you can see by my avatar - I think he'll carry the bulk of the load, maybe not the first week or two back, but I think he's better than Smith - I would def do the deal - I like Austin, hopefully he can stay healthy - Wayne seems to be Luck's fave target so he will be solid this year but that offense will have it's ups and downs - Blackmon is okay but he's a rookie and that Jax offense is suspect.

I would definitely take Miles Austin for Kevin Smith. Kevin Smith is going to have his workload reduced by a large margin once Leshoure comes back. Once this happens, I don't see Smith having much fantasy value. I think that Miles Austin will offer you much better value throughout the entirety of the year.

yeah Miles Austin would be good value for Smith. Im a Detroit fan, but I wouldnt be surprised if he got hurt and gave way to leshoure in the backfield.
