MONSTER Trade... Please Help. Experts only

Postby ozzyozwalt » Thu Oct 25, 2012 6:40 pm

Huge trade that I'm being offered. It's 0.5 PPR and I'm leaning toward doing this.

I Give:
A.J. Green or Victor Cruz
Michael Turner
Steven Jackson
Brenk Celek

I Get:
Ray Rice
Vernon Davis

Now talent for talent, I don't think it's a good trade. But I have a ton of depth and this upgrades my RB (which I greatly need) and TE tremendously. But is it giving up way to much? Also, I'm 6-1 so I'm already a lock pretty much for playoffs. Don't need the depth much anymore.

I'm normally not in favor of trading guys who are top 5 players at their position, but you have some real injury questions at RB. If Murray and Richardson were healthy I'd lean against doing this.

But you get a premier RB who has never been hurt plus an upgrade at TE.

The rest of the players are negligible IMO and I would leave them out of your mind.

I think I would do this.

And I'd get rid of Cruz, not Green. Nicks hasn't been healthy this year and I think that could hurt Cruz's value just a little bit now that Nicks is getting back to being 100%.

I could really use an expert opinion myself here:

Id be worried...V Davis is a beast but he has been MIA for the last 2 games...if you find him tell i said hello! Youd be getting Rice who is a stud but giving a lot of your depth at RB...Brown is back soon so unless you have Brown....you will lose yet another RB. You wont miss S Jax much because he is already sharing carries but you might miss Turner. Lets not forget Murray is out and you dont know when he will be back. Between Cruz and AJ i would def go with keeping AJ...both great but AJ is the only show on that team. Overall, i wouldnt do it...youre 6-1, if its not broken dont try to fix it...

This is a tough one. Where are you in the playoff hunt? This is one of those last ditch things if you're on the outside looking in. I'd def trade Cruz over Green. I think I'd do it too because you have the depth.

The biggest question is...do you NEED Ray Rice? Will you miss the playoffs if you don't get help NOW. Otherwise, I'd wait.

help?

No way. AJ and Cruz are beasts and at 6-1, I'd take the chance that your rb's get healthy and are ok.

I think I'd hold. From strictly a scoring perspective, both those Wrs are a push for Rice. I know, I'd rather have rb than WR, but they're both studs. You've got huge RB talent, just need to give them some time to get healthy. At 6-1, you HAVE time. Just don't see it helping you enough to warrant giving up so much depth
