Trade for QB

Postby TheLeague1907 » Sun Sep 23, 2012 9:04 pm

Am I crazy to trade Harvin, Doug Martin, and Jermichael Finley for Matt Ryan?(8-team standard scoring league btw)
Ive been struggling at QB with Romo and Rivers. Both are terribly inconsistent(Romo had 5 points this week and Rivers 2)
I have Foster and Mcfadden at RB and Mike Wallace at flex so trading Martin is not an issue
Im planning on picking up Heath Miller or Dennis Pitta to replace Finley
The main issue is WR I have Julio but without Harvin I have to start Floyd or Bowe
So what do you think? thanks

Post both rosters. Though it is an 8-team league I think you are giving up too much for Ryan. Romo will bounce back and your WR depth will suffer with the loss of Harvin. Also post your league scoring rules for offense. Possibly need to counter that offer . . . .

What he said^... and I think the same thing will happen for Rivers. He has been known to start off slow, but his game picks up around the holidays. I say hang tight with your QBs for now, and if Pitta is available I'd scoop him up as he seems to be a favorite target in Baltimore.

I agree that they will bounce back but i want a QB that will put up consistently 20 points not one week 25 and then 5 the next and Harvin hasnt been great. Also I could put Garcon at WR2, but he is currently injured
Anyways, scoring is ESPN standard 4 per throwing TD 6 for catching or running TD 25 yds=point for QB 10 yds=point for WR TE RB
My squad
QB:Tony Romo
RB1:Arian Foster
RB2: Darren Mcfadden
Flex: Mike Wallace
WR1: Julio Jones
WR2: Percy Harvin
TE:Finley
D/ST: Patriots
K: Zuerlein

There is very little guarantee that any QB is going to get consistant 20+ points each week with 4 points for passing TD unless you target a QB that likes to run and score a rushing TD on any given day. And that is a stretch as well. 8-o

Post the roster of the owner that has Ryan. Maybe a trade can be worked out to address both teams weaknesses without giving up too much in the process.

Offer him T.Romo/P.Harvin for M.Ryan/H.Nicks and see if he is interested. He needs help at RB also but his main need is at WR due to injuries. And you are loaded at WR but need your RB for now with upcoming BYE weeks.

I would do what the above post said and try to get Nicks and see what he says...

Your original trade offer you are giving up way to much. You should try to get nicks and maybe trade Martin if you want but he will be good Flex option to have as well.
