Steven Jackson for Ryan Matthews? WHIR

Postby elwood5582 » Thu Sep 13, 2012 6:58 pm

Someone in my league just offered me Ryan Matthews for Steven Jackson, Should I accept this trade? Matthews is likely to miss another week but Jackson plays on a crappy team with a banged up O line. These are my RB's below..

10 Team PPR

Ray Rice
Steven Jackson
Kevin Smith
Michael Turner
Jonathan Stewart

So If I make this trade I will have to start either Kevin Smith or Michael Turner in his place for this week which i'm not all that excited about. My question is however will this trade be worth it in the long run?

I'd do it. I just traded away SJAx. Matthews has been cleared for practice and may play this sunday. if not def. next week the trade is worth it.

Tell him you will do it ONLY AFTER WEEK 2. If SJax is injured then all bets are off, understandably.

I'd go for it, start Turner this week.

Unless you think he'll be splitting too much with JQuizz. Which leads me to...

I'd do it. Not really liking Sjax with his offense much. Sure, he's done it in the past, but he's a year older and I just don't see him doing a whole lot. Mathews might actually come back this week too.

Please help:

Matthews offers more upside, SJax offers more stability but more limited upside.

Kevin Smith is good and should be more valuable than a lot of people think this year, but that matchup this week against SF is brutal. After DeAngelo Williams crapped the bed you should be able to start Stewart this week if you need to. Matthews has the potential to be a top 5 RB. Jackson is very likely to finish top 12 but pretty unlikely to finish top 5.
