Trade Hernandez and Rivers for Eli or Big Ben? WHIR

Postby Thrasy » Tue Oct 23, 2012 9:27 am

Have Hernandez and Gonzalez in a PPR, thinking about packaging one with Rivers for an upgrade at QB...

Potential targets:
Roethlisberger/RGIII (owns Scott Chandler)
Eli Manning (owns Martellus Bennett)
Stafford (owns Brandon Pettigrew)

Which TE should I trade and would one of those deals be fair?

10-team: 1 PPR, 6pt passing TD, 1 Flex
QB - Rivers, Luck
RB - Foster, Lynch, R. Bush, Spiller, Mendenhall
WR - Green, Harvin, Wallace, Bowe
TE - Gonzalez, Hernandez
DP - Briggs
DST - Bears
K - Walsh

Go for Eli, Big Ben, Stafford in that order. All are upgrades over Rivers, but mostly Eli

Gonzalez is having a huge season, so you might wanna hold on to him in a best case scenario.

I'd try Hernandez and Rivers for Eli

If he rejects, i'd try some other stuff before moving on to the Big Ben owner:

Luck and Hernandez (depends how the owner's feeling about Luck and Rivers. Personally i like Luck a bit over Rivers)
Rivers / Luck and Gonzalez - i still think Hernandez will have a great season too, and Eli is a big upgrade

Try the same moves in that order with the Big Ben owner, and then the Stafford owner if you keep getting rejected

Thanks, great strategy ideas and very comprehensive!

One other idea I had was to add Lynch to the Hernandez/Rivers deal and ask for RGIII and one of Megatron, Reggie Wayne, or Hakeem Nicks (he owns MJD and TRich - ouch).

Honestly I think the only upgrade over Luck is Eli, and fantasy wise right now its not a HUGE difference. Although I think Hernandez and Gonz are top 5 TE. You have enough RB depth to trade Lynch for a top QB like RGIII. Make that deal happen. Or maybe Gonz for RGIII? I think hernandez is a buy low right now
