He countered my trade, now what? - WHIR

Postby oxhammer » Fri Oct 19, 2012 10:41 pm

Originally was offered McCoy/Crosby for McFadden/Janikowski. It was suggested that I try to get more since the team is 1-5, has too many players on bye/injured. I offered McFadden/Morris/Starks/Janikowski for McCoy/Mathews/Murray/Crosby - denied. Offered McFadden/Hartline/Janikowski for McCoy/Matthews/Crosby - denied. He countered with McCoy/Murray/Davis/Crosby for McFadden/Graham/Hartline/Janikowski. Do I take his offer, counter, or go back to original? If counter, what should I try?

Don't accept that last trade proposal from him. :-o Counter his counter with DMC/Hartline/Janikowski for McCoy/Murray/Crosby. Either possible trade with this owner is going to place your starting lineup in jeopardy for Week 7 with injuries and BYE's but afterwards you should be in good shape when Murray returns from injury. I would then look to add another WR for depth.

The suggested trade got countered with McFadden/Wallace/Janikowski for McCoy/Murray/Crosby. I countered with Williams instead of Wallace, rejected. Should I take his last offer, counter with McFadden/Hartline/Janikowski for Mathews/Murray/Crosby, or something in-between?

Don't take the offer that includes Graham! He's trying to snake away way too much talent. You are doing him a favor by taking Murray off his hands. I would try Mcfadden/Hartline for Mccoy/Moore but if he doesnt take it I wouldn't go much further, I think you really just need another WR to through into the mix. But don't let him bully you into trading away more talent when Mccoy and Mccfadden will probably be about even at the end of the season.

You can't afford to give up Wallace without getting a WR back in return. Hartline should suffice in the offer to him, but he wants more from you. If he is adamant about Wallace than ask for Moore in return and offer DMC/Wallace/Janikowski for McCoy/Moore/Crosby as a counter.

If he rejects, go back to DMC/Hartline/Janikowski for McCoy/Murray/Crosby and stick with that. Tell him this is it. You are in better shape than him at the moment anyway.
