Try to make a trade for a QB? Or ride it out...WHIR!

Postby Twlong223 » Fri Oct 05, 2012 9:37 pm

So here is what my team is looking like:

QB: Fitz and Ponder
RB: McCoy, DMC, R. Bush, R. Mathews
WR: AJ Green, Bowe, R. Wayne, DJax, T. Young
TE: Daniels
K: Hartley, Hanson
DST: giants

So far 3-1 but that's because I got very lucky and dropped cutler for Fitz at the last minute before Sunday's games. Good gamble as I won by a tenth of a point. My only issue is at QB, and Fitz has some bad matchups coming up but finishes with great matchups. Ponder is alright but probably won't be putting up great numbers very often.

My two main targets for a QB trade would be Cam and RG3. The deal I can afford to offer would be McCoy and Ponder for either Cam/A.Morris or RG3/T.Richardson. The Cam owner has Rivers for a backup and RG3 owner has Vick so Ponder is just a throw in for them. Not even sure if my trade offers would be considered but both those teams are weak at RB.

Should I even think about making these offers? Or just suck it up and play matchups between my two mediocre QBs? Thanks for the help/advice!

Also forgot to mention it is a PPR 12 team league. Any other advice? Leave a link and I'll help!

Don't give up McCoy in ANY deal to upgrade your QB position. Especially if you are looking to get back in return either Alfred Morris or Trent Richardson. You will hurt your team in the long run regardless of the upgrade you recieve at QB.

Post the rosters of the teams that have RGIII and Cam. Maybe something else can be worked out before you give up McCoy.

A little too much a hit here, though it is a bold move:
RG3/T.Richardson
The problem is TRich's carries...I'm concerned here. They need to get him 20+ touches.

The other two rosters look like this:

Qb: cam/rivers
Rb: Peterson, a. Morris, jaquizz
Wr: Wallace, James jones, VJax, burleson
Te: Rudolph, Finley
K: Crosby
DST: San Fran, browns

Qb: rg3, Vick
Rb: Richardson, bjge, beanie wells
Wr: megatron, r. White, garçon, Crabtree
Te: v. Davis, Gresham
K: tucker
DST: bears, pats, eagles (rofl@3 defenses)

Like I said, both are horribly weak at rb. The rg3 team is 3-1 like me, but the bye weeks are about to kick him in the balls

Looking over both rosters I like the potential of acquiring RGIII to upgrade your QB position. But it will cost you possibly in one area (RB) but the return may pay for itself. Offer him Fitz/R.Bush/D.Bowe for RGIII/T.Richardson/Megatron and see if he is interested.

I don't have any faith in Bush staying healthy all year, and with your league a PPR he might go for the slight upgrade at RB over Richardson. Plus you have both McCoy and DMC to start for you at RB. Megatron may be the deal breaker but he is on a BYE this week and he could use another WR to start for him (Bowe). RGIII is a starter for him but will he trade him? Now is the time to find out.

I don't see any way he accepts this trade. RG3>Fitz, TRich>Bush, Megatron>Bowe.

I would keep McCoy, hes a great player and gets a lot points especially with the way Vick has been playing lately. I would keep Ponder hes been playing like a veteran so far. I would try to move Fitz and try to get a player like Bradford from another team.
