Trade Robert Griffin III or Peyton Manning? WHIR

Postby cbs525 » Wed Oct 17, 2012 1:23 pm

I have RGIII and Peyton Manning and I was thinking about trading one of them. One guy wants me to trade him RGIII for Victor Cruz and Matt Forte. Should I make this trade?

My Team:
Peyton Manning
Robert Griffin III
RB- Ray Rice
RB- Jamaal Charles
WR- James Jones
WR- Mike Williams
WR- Julio Jones
WR- Antonio Brown
WR- Pierre Garcon
WR- Denarius Moore
TE- Antonio Gates
K- Rob Bironas
K- Nick Novak
New Orleans Defense

Other Team:
Kevin Kolb
Matt Cassel
RB- BenJarvis Green Ellis
RB- Lesean McCoy
RB- Matt Forte
RB- Peyton Hillis
RB- Toby Gerhart
RB- Evan Royster
RB- Taiwan Jones
WR- Victor Cruz
WR- AJ Green
WR- Sidney Rice
K- Stephen Gostkowski
Steelers Defense

Scoring in this league: QB: 1 point for 50 yards passing; 1 point for 20 yards rushing; 6 points for TD.
RB/WR/TE: 1 point for 20 yards receiving or rushing; 6 points for TD. Not a PPR League.

We do not have to play a certain amount of each position. It is just 1 QB, 1 Defense, 1 Kicker, and 5 position players.

Ya I think I'd do this. I never roster 2 QB's and if i did it would be for this reason...trade bait. This def upgrades your team. I assume you have no open bench spots so you'd have to drop someone to accommodate this trade? Who would you drop....Garcon? Maybe offer him RGIII/Garcon (or M.Williams) for Cruz/McCoy. Not sure he'd do it, but it looks like he's hurting at WR (especially after giving up Cruz) so maybe he'll go for it.

I would do this trade. I like Peyton Manning more than RGIII. RGIII is a huge injury risk and although his potential is really high, getting two players of like Cruz and an elite RB. I really like this trade for you.

Help?

Make the trade. As others have noted, Griffin is an injury risk and although Manning is not immortal his schedule eases up a bit from here on out.

Moreover, you're getting Forte!

10 rushing yards - 1 pt
10 receiving yards - 1 pt
20 passing yards - 1 pt
All TDs - 6 pts (QBs favored)

Pretty solid trade offer. RG3's upside is definitely more but can he run for 123 yards and 2 scores every week? Manning will be fine and getting Forte really makes it worth it. I have RG3 and if I got an offer like that one...Oh YEA!!

Pls help on this one: viewtopic.php?t=526460

I think you should do this trade. RGIII is an injusry risk and Manning looks solid as ever. You could use an upgrade at WR and Cruz would be a huge addition to Jones.

I agree with the previous comments - you need to make this trade. While RG3 has been amazing this year, Manning has thrown for over 300 yards and 3 TDs in each of his last three games. I would feel confident going forward with Peyton Manning. Plus, as people already mentioned, you greatly improve your WR situation.
