McFadden and Julio for Arian and Turner. Help! WHIR 100%!

Postby Happy Homer » Wed Oct 24, 2012 7:30 pm

14 team standard non-ppr money league. I was approached by owner of Arian Foster in a our league willing to deal Foster, because his RBs are on a bye this week. I have a solid team with no holes, however to get one of the big 3 RBs, I had to at least hear him out. He proposed this to me...

His:
Arian Foster
Nate Washington

For My:
Darren McFadden
Julio Jones

It's tempting, but I feel like DMC and Julio have both been under-performing this year and will bounce back and have big 2nd halfs. I also have Matt Ryan, so the Ryan-Julio connection is something I like to have. I'm also hesitant because I finally have a roster with no holes, and this move would leave me weak at my flex. Is it worth it for the top back in FF?

My team:
QB - Matt Ryan
RB - DMC
RB -Trent Richardson
RB/WR - Miles Austin
WR - AJ Green
WR - Julio Jones
TE - Aaron Hernandez
D - Eagles
K - Lawrence Tynes

Bench:
Chrstian Ponder
Felix Jones
Jacquizz Rodgers
William Powell
Donnie Avery
Dennis Pitta
Raiders

His team:
QB - RG3
RB - Arian Foster
RB - Fred Jackson
RB/WR - Nate Washington
WR - Vincent Jackson
WR - Reggie Wayne
TE - Kyle Rudolph
D - Texans
K - Connor Barth

Bench:
Michael Turner
Brent Celek
Mario Manningham
Brandon Jacobs
Brandon Weeden
Colts
Jordan Norwood

I trade him to convince him to give me either Wayne or Jackson, but he's not budging. What about Turner? I thought he would drop off this year but he's having a solid year in an explosive offense. That would also give me 3 RBs and I feel like Turner is a better piece than Nate Washington if I wanted to package him in a trade. Another option would be the Houston Texans D. If he would be willing to swap D's, that might make it more appealing to me. I'm leaning towards countering with Turner instead of Washington, and saying he doesn't need him because he would have 3 stud WRs and 2 must start RBs. Let me know your guys' thoughts and please leave a link, WHIR! Thanks in advance!

Hell yes do this! That would give you the #1 WR AND #1 RB in a 14 team league! I might pick up an upside WR off waivers in the process but I say do it.

I would do either trade to be honest. I am trying to get Arian by offering Turner or McFadden and Bowe or Torrey Smith just for Arian.

PLease see mine.

I am kind of ingnorant on Nate Washington. But this trade appears about even. Foster is the higher value being a high ranked every down back on a really good team. DMC seems to be feast or famine. Julio is a #1 receiver but not necessarily the best; rather in a group of the top elite guys IMO (like cruz, megatron, green). Hard to tell who is best of these guys. Therefore Arian is the prize here.

The trade looks fair. But you really weaken your receiver corp as a result. I would shop elsewhere if possible. But if you really value Foster that much, I couldn't really fault you for doing it.

Bump. Can I get a couple more responses, he said we have to figure out the terms tonight, so the move can go through before the bye. Help!

If you can get Turner instead of Washington I'd definitley do that. I'm not in love with Turner but he's a decent flex play. I'm not as big on the trade involving Washington but wouldn't fault you if you made it.
