need some advice...WHIR as always

Postby letsgobirds » Mon Sep 17, 2012 2:54 pm

to make it short and sweet here, I have Foster, Richardson, Spiller, and Mathews but can only play 3 each week. Mathews will be back next week. I set the league record this week in points so I don't NEED to make a trade but I have been looking because benching one of them each week will be hell. I figure if anything I can try to rid myself of this Welker situation and upgrade my WRs. Let me know what you guys think I should look to do.

I was offered Calvin and Fred Jackson for Foster but don't believe I'll be doing that.

QB-Vick, Locker
RB-Foster, Mathews, Richardson, Spiller, Ronnie Brown
WR-Harvin, Welker, Garcon, Meachem, Titus Young
TE-Graham
K-Bryant
DEF-Detroit

I definitely would not take Calvin and Jackson for Foster.

I would sell on Spiller while his value is through the roof. Eventually Jackson will be back. I don't think that Spiller is going to retreat to back-up duty but he'll be sharing carries. Also, I'd be amazed if opposing teams didn't start planning for him and try to force Buffalo to the air.

I'd pair him up with Vick and see what kind of upgrade I can get there or pair him up with a WR for a solid receiver (Julio/Cruz/Nicks/Maclin/AJ Green?)

If I were the Julio owner I wouldn't trade him but it never hurts to make an offer.

Also... with Hernandez out, I'd expect to see Welkers looks get a booter shot.

the owner of cruz and greg jennings lost bradshaw yesterday in an already weak RB core. I think I might be able to pull something off with him...

Absolutely go after that cruz or jennings guy.
Give Spiller up while he's this hot.

I would prefer jennings, unless his injury seems more severe. He's gonna be looking for a new contract after this season, which usually means big seasons.

Basically it's the question of whether I'd rather do Spiller for Jennings or Mathews for Julio. Any basic input on that?

heck if you can get Mathews for Julio you take that and RUN!

Otherwise, Jennings is aging, already injured this season, and is in an offense that has a bazillion receiving options which is only getting deeper with the beginnings of the emergence of Randal Cobb.

Personally I love the idea of getting Cruz for Spiller but if you can get Julio for Mathews I'd do that for sure.

I love Julio, but I also love Matthews (I have both).
I really think Spiller is your best trade option at this point. Look for Cruz for spiller. Seems to be your best bet.

I actually like the Matthews for Julio trade better. Jennings seems to get dinged more and more lately (whether it be injury or concussion), an i feel he's no longer the top WR he once was...heck, he's basically the #2 after Nelson & possibly behind Finley too..

whereas Julio is top 5 (possibly 2-3) WR in the league; & who knows how Matthews will do when he comes back...or how long he'll go before he gets injured again.

thanks for the help with mine

I like the Matthews for Julio trade as well. Julio is a flat out stud and I think he'll put up big numbers all season long. Jennings is still good but he's certainly lost a step and will probably end up missing more games at some point this season.
