Postby mtrain42 » Mon Sep 17, 2012 6:45 pm

WR: Julio Jones, Malcom Floyd, Titus Young, Dexter McCluster, Randall Cobb, DHB

I would hold out if I were you. Doug Martin is the clear cut back in Tampa & once he has a couple of big back to back games you will start receiving better offers.

Thanks for the help with mine!

I agree with the above comment.
I don't think Bowe is a big improvement for you as a second receiver. Doug Martin will become more tradeable for you. Having 4 starting RBs is a big asset in fantasy and you should use that to your advantage.

Turn down the deal.

I'm high on Doug Martin. I would try to trade him to another team with better WRs. I'm a little worried about Steve Smith's injury even though he's still producing. You have awesome RBs, but no need to sell'em low.

Steve Smith is still producing despite his injury but definitely isn't 100%, I would still wait for a better offer. \

yea like said above ,think you can get better than Bowe ,other team is trying to sell high after his garbage time performance

I'm in the minority here. I prefer Bowe over S. Smith. Bowe was a top 5 WR just 2 years ago. TD's were lacking last year, but he's already got 2 this year. They are bad! and, that means lots of trash time. I like Bowe to be a top 10-15 WR.

If you want to make a trade RB for WR, I like Bowe.

I would hang onto to Doug Martin, hard to get a starting RB like that, keep him another week, u can always find another WR

I'd hang onto Martin for sure. And on his team, why isn't Stevie Johnson starting? I'd rather have him than bowe. But the other poster raised a good point about Bowe's potential, maybe he will turn into top 12-15 again.

Either way, RB's are still gold by the time you get to week 8 and there are injuries mounting. WRs just don't get injured at nearly that rate.

Good luck
