Too Much for Foster? whir

Postby Damfast » Thu Oct 04, 2012 9:01 am

I'm currently 3-1 in a CBS League.

I've been offered Arian Foster, Kenny Britt, and Bengals DEF for Reggie Bush, Alfred Morris, Mike Wallace, and Cards DEF. I've been trying to get Foster from this guy all year and he finally sent me an offer. He's 1-3 so he's got to shake things up a bit, but has been pretty stingy with trades in the past.

I know it's Foster, but my first reaction is that it's a little steep and leaves me with almost zero bench. Any thoughts or ideas on a counter if you agree it's too steep?

Here's my league and lineup info.

Salary Cap Auction League w/Keepers

Scoring
TD - Rush/Rec = 6pt, Pass = 4pt
Rec Yds - 1pt/25 (for TE it's 1pt/20)
Recpt - 1pt/5
Rush Yds - 1pt/25
Rushes - 1pt/10

Current Starters($)
QB - J Flacco (4)
RB - R Rice (49)
WR - D Thomas (6)
TE - V Davis (20)
K - Zurlein (1)
DEF - Cards (7)
Flex (WR/RB/TE) - Alfred Morris (2)
Flex (WR/TE) - Mike Wallace (19)

Current Reserves
RB - R Bush (11)
RB - J Battle (3)
WR - A Jeffrey (1)
WR - J Simpson (1)
TE - D Keller (4)

I can have up to 8 reserves as long as I stay within the $150 salary cap.

Starters After Trade
QB - J Flacco (4)
RB - R Rice (49)
WR - D Thomas (6)
TE - V Davis (20)
K - Zurlein (1)
DEF - Bengals (1)
Flex (WR/RB/TE) - A Foster (26)
Flex (WR/TE) - J Simpson (1)

Reserves After Trade
RB -
RB - J Battle (3)
WR - A Jeffrey (1)
WR -
TE - D Keller (4)

Our Free Agents are pretty much picked through. The best DEF available is the Browns, the best RB available is B Bolden or D Woodhead, the best QB available is Matt Cassell, but I'd only be concerned with QB if an injury and the bye week.

I would trade almost anything for Foster but yeah that is too much. Considering that the other two RB's will probably equal Foster....you are giving icing on top of icing on that trade cake! Don't do it!

Wow you would have Ray Rice and Foster on your team. I actually like this trade as you are getting the best player in the game & #1 overall pick. I think Britt will eventually get you the production loss for Wallace.

Wayyyyyy too much for Foster man. Don't do it, your losing a #1 WR, #1 RB (reggie bush is doing awesome this year) #2 RB (Alfred morris is good as well) Cards Def... come on man. Britt is sitting this week I believe also, this is a dumb ass trade.

By the way what does WHIR Mean?

Thanks for feedback.

I rejected that trade and offered him Wallace and Bush for Foster. Doubt he'll take it, but I can't give up that much.

It's a bit much, yeah, but it depends on how much you want Foster. If you just have to have him, then pull the trigger. I do think that Britt, once healthy, will be a solid WR for you and to have Rice and Foster would be amazing! That said, it is a bit much since Morris and Bush have been playing well and Wallace is a top tier WR. Also that would leave your bench pretty damn thin, so bye weeks will kill you. IMO I would not do this deal.
