Trade for Lloyd?

Postby dblj9911 » Wed Sep 26, 2012 1:11 pm

10 team dynasty league, keep entire roster, rookie / free agent draft, 6 pt all tds, 1 ppr, start 1 qb, 2 RB, 3 wr, 1 te, 1 k, 2 idp. We are able to trade draft picks as well.
One owner has Brandon Lloyd available for trade, should I make a move for him or stand still? I could trade him along with another wr then to get Cam Newton. They already sent me a offer of my Colston and J Nelson for Cam. Any thoughts? WHIR
QB- Ryan, Eli
RB- AP, Richardson, Bradshaw, Green-Ellis, Benson, A Morris, K Smith, M Bush
WR- Fitz, Calvin, Colston, J Nelson, Decker, Rice, Manningham, Blackmon
TE- Gronk, Daniels

Thanks for the help w/ my RB post.

I don't think you need Cam as much as you need another good WR1 like Lloyd to round out you top 3 starters.

If he'll go Lloyd for Nelson straight up, I'd do it. Even Lloyd for Benson would be a good one for you as I really don't see Benson breaking out in Green Bay.

Good Luck

I agree that you really just don't need Cam, unless you're just buying low (which is still a risk IMO). The problem with Lloyd is that he's legitimately a gamble every week. I agree that if you can get him straight up for Nelson, it's not a bad gamble.

Thanks for the help on mine.
When in doubt, punt!

Thanks for the help. Like pretty much everyone else said, I don't see a real reason for Cam. If you can get Lloyd for Nelson, I'd do it.
