Trade Matt Ryan?

Postby HennessyGT » Mon Oct 22, 2012 2:19 pm

12-team Standard (6pt for Passing TD) League. Start QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1 Flex, TE, DST and K

I’m 5-2 after this week and looking to improve my team down the stretch.

What do you guys think dealing Matt Ryan, Dez Bryant, and Mikel Leshoure for Philip Rivers, Ray Rice, and Greg Jennings?

If I made this deal, my starting lineup would look like:

QB: Rivers
RB: DMC, Charles
WR: Green, Wayne
TE: Gates
Flex: R. Rice

I see this as gambling that RIvers won’t be this terrible all year and Greg Jennigs will come back strong when healthy, and upgrading my Flex from Dez to Rice. Is the hit at QB worth the gamble or should I stay put?

I don't like it. Rivers isn't even being started in a lot of leagues, and Ryan is one of the best QBs in Fantasy. His receiver core is elite. Not worth it to me, though Rice would be a very nice addition, just not at the expense of a massive QB downgrade.

Help with mine?

The massive downgrade at QB was my big hesitation. What do you guys think of this trade that was offered...

I trade Matt Ryan and Mikel Leshoure for Matt Stafford and Trent Richardson?

I would be banking on Stafford turning it around and t-rich getting healthy for the 2nd half.

Youre 5-2...i would avoid such major change even if i really like Rice. But you have to understand that the Ravens today are not the old Ravens, they are struggling and will often play from behind...idk if Rice will match last year's numbers.
