Cruz trade update. Quick help please, WHIR 100%

Postby kgecklund » Wed Oct 17, 2012 7:21 pm

Ok so now ive figured out a three way trade and this is on the table.

I would get - Graham, Steve Smith, Greg Jennings

I would give - Cruz, Fred Davis

My roster looks like this in a 12 team standard:

QB - Stafford, Romo
RB - Lynch, Mathews, Mendy, Ballard, Tate
WR - Cruz, Demaryius, Bowe, Wright, Meachem
TE - Fred Davis, Pitta
DST - Texans

Leave a link and ill help with yours guys, thanks appreciate it!

That would be a good deal ......IF you knew for sure when Jennings was coming back and if he was going to stay healthy and Graham also has injury issues of his own. If you feel lucky then go for it but dont over look the risk.

I'm not sure I really like this.. Sure Graham is a stud and he's a definite upgrade over Davis, but I dont think Jennings or Smith really makes up for losing Cruz. You're upgrading your TE position which is solid right now, and losing at the WR position.. Cruz is much more reliable IMO then Jennings even when healthy just purely because the Packers spread it around quite a bit.

I agree with the above, its very risky, but IF Jennings comes back healthy and you feel okay waiting for him (could be a few more weeks, I doubt highly he comes back this week) then I think you can do it. You need to understand that Graham has an ankle injury and didn't practice today after a week off to rest it, which raises a red flag for me, though it could be nothing. Jennings hasn't practiced in a while and has been bit by the injury bug this year. Its very risky to trade off a solid TE and an elite WR for an elite, but injured TE, and a, IMO, boarderline elite, yet also injured WR. I can see why you'd do it, but your WR depth isnt that great to where I think you could feel good about waiting for Jennings.. Especially this week, you'd have to play Smith and Wright, and who knows if Graham will be back this week..

Too risky for me. I'd stick with Cruz who teams can't seem to cover.

I wouldn't do it. Too many players injured in the trade.
