Murray/Julio for Lynch/V-Jax. WHIR.

Postby mpt3489 » Wed Oct 17, 2012 3:14 pm

Standard Scoring. 1 point for 10 rushing/receiving yards. 6 points for a rushing/ receiving touchdown. I was really high on Murray and Jones going into the season and after this week they both will have had their bye week out of the way. (Jones has his bye week this week). I like my potential and depth at WR with Denarius Moore and Kenny Britt. And this trade is tough because I don't know when DeMarco Murray will be back (he stated he'd be back week 8 against the Giants). Lynch has his bye week 11. Vincent Jackson already had his bye.

My WRs have been consistent and my RBs have been inconsistent. I'm not wild about this trade, but is it the right move?

I give:
DeMarco Murray
Julio Jones

Marshawn Lynch
Vincent Jackson

QB Andrew Luck (Ind - QB)
WR Percy Harvin (Min - WR)
WR Calvin Johnson (Det - WR)
WR Denarius Moore (Oak - WR)
RB Darren McFadden (Oak - RB)
RB DeMarco Murray (Dal - RB)
TE Fred Davis (Was - TE)
Flex Julio Jones (Atl - WR)
K Blair Walsh (Min - K)
DEF Seattle (Sea - DEF)
BN Jonathan Stewart (Car - RB)
BN Michael Vick (Phi - QB)
BN Kenny Britt (Ten- WR)
BN Brian Hartline (Mia - WR)
BN Jacquizz Rodgers (Atl - RB)

My gut says no. I'm not really high on Lynch and Murray is targeting a week 8 return. Plus I love Julio.

EDIT: I wasn't completely familiar with Lynch's stats this season. He is a sure fire RB1. I retract my last statement, go for it.

I would take that trade in a heartbeat. Lynch is easily a top 10 RB and Jackson has been playing great lately. Julio will have his up and down weeks because of Roddy and Murray is injury prone and hasn't been playing well lately.

This is a tough one but I came up with what I think are strong reasons you don't make the trade. I think the best player in this trade is Julio Jones. Stats between he and Jackson are comparable. What separates them in my mind is the consistency of Atlanta's offense and the fact that they are a winning team. I've been pulling for Freeman to play at a consistent level but that hasn't happened yet. I think Julio is more of a sure thing. I rank Lynch over Murray, especially with Murray dinged up, but not enough to sway my opinion. Lynch has 2 games left against SF defense as well.

Although I like Lynch more than Murray I would not make this trade. When Murray gets back from injury he should do fine and i trust Matt Ryan more than I trust Josh Freeman. He has been doing well lately but that is likely to end soon and when ends, Jackson's value goes down too.

Murray is injured and could be out weeks. I don't like giving up Julio for V-Jax, but I might take it just to replace Murray with a solid RB.
