Big Offer on Table: T-Rich, Decker, Nicks for Ray Rice

Postby bigboyp106 » Mon Sep 24, 2012 9:18 pm

I've got Ray Rice and Arian Foster. Dwayne Bowe is my only solid WR, with several lower tier guys (Boldin, Crabtree, Lance Moore, Sidney Rice, Ogletree, Stephen Hill).

10 team league, my roster:

QB Eli Manning
RB Arian Foster
RB Ray Rice
WR Dwayne Bowe
WR Michael Crabtree
Flex Andre Brown
TE Vernon Davis
D/ST Texans
K Mason Crosby

BE Lance Moore
BE Anquan Boldin
BE Beanie Wells
BE Sidney Rice
BE Stephen Hill
BE Kevin Ogletree
BE Rashard Mendenhall

The offer is Trent Richardson, Decker, and Nicks for Rice. I could use a better WR but I'm very unsure about giving up Rice. Thoughts?

Thats a really tough one. I think that T Rich is only going to get better week to week and you really could use a WR upgrade. I'd see if he has someone a little better than decker and if necessary cough up one of your lesser WR in the deal.

Help w/mine?

This^^

Very difficult to advise anyone to trade Rice, but in this case you're getting about the right value. I would see if he's willing to give someone better then Decker, site Nicks injury concerns as reason, or maybe someone better then Nicks.. I think TRich is solid and his ceiling is probably just about what Rice's is, I would like to see a little higher WR then Decker, but I would take it as is.

help with mine?

looks like thats his best offer.. Like I said, I think you can take it and feel good about upgrading you WR's and not too much drop off from Rice in terms of ceiling.

If you can convince him to do Lloyd over Decker, I'd say jump all over it. The browns will eventually start to lean on Richardson with how Weeden is playing. Then you'd have Nicks and Lloyd, the top receivers who each have an elite QB throwing to them. Lloyd has the most targets on the patriots over 3 straight weeks, and Nicks (when healthy) will have all the ability in the world to break out because defenses have to focus on Cruz as well.

Should I still go through with this if I had to give up Lance Moore?

Rice/Moore for Richardson/Lloyd/Nicks

Granted, I can only play 3 receivers, and Moore is so hit or miss in the Saints offense - he has had two decent showings better than Crabtree. I think having both Nicks and Lloyd solves that problem though, but does anyone else have a thought? I still have a hard time parting with Rice.
