blockbuster trade help

Postby iLoveTD's » Mon Sep 10, 2012 4:28 pm

Ok, so I was verbally offered Calvin Johnson and Frank Gore for McCoy and V.Jax. I hate the thought of giving up McCoy, but I figure I still have a top 10 rb in Forte and Gore is not a bad 2rb, plus I still have good depth at rb. My wr's are kinda shaky and I don't feel any bit confident in them at all, plus Megatron is a beast.
It appears I am going to lose tonight, unless Janikowski goes nuts and Rivers sucks it up, but I doubt it.
This is my team in a 10 team ppr keeper league.
rb bench- Mcgahee, D.Brown, Mendenhall, Leshoure
wr bench- Britt, Blackmon

Tough one. But I think I would do it. The Niners are playing old school football with Defense and running, and Gore looked good in week 1. He's also been pretty durable, and has the respect of his team and coaches. Your opponent is trying to sell high on him I am sure, but I like your starting lineup more with CJ, Wallace, Forte and Gore than I do with Wallace, VJax, McCoy, and Forte. Only thing to consider is what Britt will do when he comes back. If he performs anything like he did last year before getting hurt, you will have an embarassment of riches.

It's a fair deal either way. I would be inclined to pull the Trigger though.

I'd probably take the trade. You have depth at RB and CJ would totally help at WR (obviously). I know it's hard to give up McCoy but CJ is the real deal. This trade makes your team a more all around good, complete team. Good luck!
