Jimmy Graham for Martellus Bennett and WR?

Postby DoctaC84 » Wed Sep 19, 2012 9:18 am

Team 1 has several solid WRs that he is willing to part with in exchange for Graham. I would also receive Martellus Bennett who has had a decent start this year.

My team consists of

RG3
Stevan Ridley
Kevin Smith
Chris Johnson FLEX
Brandon LLoyd
Antonio Brown
Jimmy Graham
Defense changes per matchup
Billy Cundiff kicker

bench
Mike Vick
Daniel Thomas
Titus Young
Greg Little
Donald Jones
Donnie Avery



So my WRs are little thin, but they at least have some potential. RBs aren't too hot either but I feel like between the 3 I can get something decent this year, especially if I pick up another WR for the flex.

The WRs he is willing to negotiate over are Malcolm Floyd, Miles Austin, Reggie Wayne, Greg Jennings, Pierre Garcon.

So potentially one of those WRs, and Martellus Bennett for Jimmy Graham. I'm pretty torn because I feel any of these receivers could help me out, and Bennett would fill the TE void for the most part, but Graham is so reliable and has the potential to blow up every game. Thoughts?

I wouldn't do that trade, you won't be getting a good enough receiver for him in my opinion. Think of Graham as an elite receiver, try to aim for a better WR

Yeah you just answered your own question with this:

but Graham is so reliable and has the potential to blow up every game. Thoughts?


Graham is a game-breaker and you would need to get a top guy back for him. Honestly Greg Jennings is not gonna be that guy this year and Miles Austin is well too inconsistent and not valuable enough. If he was gonna give you someone like Julio, Roddy, Cruz, it might of made it a tougher decision, but Graham should only be traded if your gonna get top guys in return.
