Trent Richardson Trade. Need help

Postby bearsfan012512 » Wed Oct 17, 2012 10:41 pm

I give Trent Richardson
I get Larry Fitzgerald and Miles Austin

I know to most it may seem like a good deal, but I'm not sure if the bump at WR is worth the drop off at RB plus I can easily see myself keeping Richardson for next year if he keeps this up.

I'd stay put, your RB core isn't deep enough to give up T-Rich.

Keep T-Rich. Are you comfortable starting Chris Johnson and Felix Jones or Ben Tate every week? I wouldn't be. You have plenty of depth at WR. If you trade away T-Rich for Fitz and Austin then you put all your eggs in the WR basket. Keep Richardson and you have a decent balance. Plus, I think he IS the keeper on your squad. Especially if there is no limit as to how long you can keep him. Dude will be a stud for a long time. Good luck!

starting 3 RBs, that's a risky move, however, if your league is very active on trading, i would take the trade and sell your WRs to upgrade RBs simply because the value of Fitz+Austin is greater than T.Richardson and that give you more edge on future trade.

i'll definitely accept this trade if there are teams that is stacked on RB but very weak on WR.
this is something that will boost your team greatly if you manage your trade well, however, if you can't find a buyer for your WRs, then you are really hurting yourself.

Keep Richardson. He holds so much value being that you do start 3 backs and you have very little depth at the running back position. There is also the fact that you are in a keeper league and he has much more future value than Fitz and Austin.

Also, your weekly point total would fall off too much.

Although I am intrigued by the advice to go ahead and trade either of the wide receivers in the future, you are not guaranteed a trading partner, especially with wide receivers being so plentiful.

Help me please

No. Trent looks much more valuable to your team. Your WRs look good already.

I would agree with everyone else, you are pretty solid at WR but your RB core is really weak. To me Trent is going to be a top 6-7 back this year and hes only getting better. Add into that his keeper value and i think this deal is horrible for you, i think Trent is one of the best keepers in the league just because he is a rookie on the rise.
