Trade for Andrew Luck???

Postby faitdavid » Mon Oct 08, 2012 9:26 am

I'm in a PPR League with very high scoring for QB's (good ones will score 40-50 a game. Points per Completion is the biggest factor). My current QB is Cam Newton, who has literally lost two games for me all by myself with his maddeningly inconsistent numbers.
We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, FLEX, TE, K, DEF
My roster is as follows:
QBs: Cam Newton, Christian Ponder
RBs: Trent Richardson, Ahmad Bradshaw, Michael Turner, Rashard Mendenhall, Mikel Leshoure, Ryan Williams
WRs: Calvin Johnson, Demaryius Thomas, Dwayne Bowe, Pierre Garcon, Jerome Simpson, Kenny Britt
TE: Brandon Pettigrew
K: Blair Walsh
DEF: Atlanta

Newton is on bye next week. I am wondering if I should trade for another QB. I was thinking Andrew Luck. The Luck owner also has Aaron Rodgers, so Luck is not his starter, and he could use some help at other positions (RB/WR, both of which I am fairly deep at). My question is this: Is Michael Turner for Andrew Luck a good trade? Too much? Not enough? He'll start for at least next week, and playing the match ups could be to my advantage. Turner sits on the bench almost every week, and those behind him are capable of picking up the slack.

Do it. I'm not a fan of Turner and never have been, even though he has been producing. If the other owner needs RB's, then Turner should be enough to get the job done. Good luck!

Thanks for your input!

Most definitely do it. Turner is ok, but if the league has emphasized qb's so much it follows that playing a more passing prone qb with good hands down the field will get you more points than an ovverbhyped rb. You will lose some ppr value, but you are still largely deep in backs and considering points per completion luck is a much better play that newton's happy feet and the viking's ball security based offense.

Considering your roster, you should definitely do it. Especially with Turner on the bench.

Help me with similar issue?
