Please Help! Sproles for Jimmy Graham? - .5 PPR...WHIR

Postby GeneralTsou » Tue Sep 11, 2012 12:50 pm

10-team .5 PPR, 1 pt for every 50 return yds. 1 pts for 100 return yds.

There is a team that is in desperate need of RB after Fred Jackson went down. He also has DMAC, Donald Brown, and Ingram. FJax is out till at least week 6. Brown has a bye week in week 4 and DMac in week 5. That would leave him having to start Ingram for week 4 and 5.

These are my RBs:

Ryan Mathews
Darren Sproles
Doug Martin
Steven Ridley
Kevin Smith
Peyton Hillis
Mikel Leshoure

Hes offering Graham for Sproles straight up. I know it seems like a no-brainer but Sproles has added value being that we get .5 pts for receptions and 1 pt for every 50 return yds and another 1 pt at 100 return yds. For reference, he gave me an extra 3 pts in week 1 for 107 return yds. I could still start Mathews (when he comes back), Martin, and Ridley/Smith.

I know Graham improves my team and we can only start max 3 RBs but RB depth is so important. Should I just pull the trigger now before he changes his mind? Or do I stand pat since my team is very strong and dont fix what aint broke? I could always hope that another one of his RBs goes down (likely DMAC) and then get Graham for RIdley and Rudolph again (he'd have no choice at that point).

I'm currious to know why he canceled the trade?

I would consider moving Ryan Mathews for Jimmy Graham. Jimmy has more value (#1 TE) and I'm not a fan of having a RB who started the season with an injury. See if he bites on that. Or just offer Ridley for Graham.

Ryan Mathews (when he's healthy) will get a much bigger workload than Sproles and hes the goalline back. He cancelled the trade because he doesn't want to give up a marquee player for Ridley. I guess he doesn't trust Belichek and Ridley has a small sample size. He won't do Ridley for Graham anymore (right now). That may change is he suffers another injury at RB (likely with DMC). Am I getting too cute or trying to be too greedy?

One way to look at it is, would I get more points from Sproles/Rudolph or Ridley/Graham? I tend to think Ridley/Graham.

Ridley for Graham is no longer on the table. He canceled the proposal. He'll do Sproles for Graham but not Ridley. Does anyone think starting Brady and Ridley is limiting teams potential?

I don't see starting both Ridley and Brady is a bad thing.

I think you see more points from Ridley/Graham than Sproles/Rudolph, personally. If you extrapolate from week 1, the Saints had a bad week. Graham got good production, even on a bad week. Sproles got decent production, and it could easily have gone to Pierre Thomas instead. On the good weeks, they're both going to get good numbers. I guess I'm saying Graham is the more solid bet.

Thoughts on my decision? viewtopic.php?t=519232

Can I trust Ridley on a weekly basis? Sproles seems safer because he gets return yds, catches, and carries.

should I pull the trigger? My current TE is Kyle Rudolph. He seems to have good chemistry with Ponder but he is no Jimmy Graham.
