Vick for Welker Trade WHIR

Postby captain num nuts » Fri Oct 26, 2012 3:46 am

Should I trade Mike Vick and Steven Jackson for Welker? This is a non PPR league. I would have to start Rivers at my QB and Welker would replace Jackson at my FLEX. I think Vick is going to have a really good 2nd half of the season. And they have an awesome schedule especially in the fantasy playoffs.

Thanks for the help

Would help to see the rest of your team. But I dont have the same confidence in Vick. Feel there's a tin of QB's in his range. To upgrade from Sjax to Welker, and have him at flex, seems like a solid upgrade. Its a little steep, but wiithout knowing anything more, I'd pull the trigger

Steven Jackson is losing more and more playing time, while at the same time I have zero confidence in Welker. My advice would be to make the trade, Welker is a solid flex play and a certain upgrade. Rivers will score just as well as Vick will.

Help with mine please? viewtopic.php?f=18&t=527654&p=3491591#p3491591

My Starters at RB are Lesean McCoy and Jamaal Charles.
My bench at RB is Hillis, Draughn and Daryl Richardson. Pretty Thin

I like the trade. I'm an Eagles fan, so I've seen all of the Eagles games, and Vick is playing extremely poorly--making bad decisions (INTs), not protecting the ball AT ALL when he runs (fumbles), and his offensive line is terrible, so he's getting crushed on every drop back. I expect him to either get hurt or benched before too long.

The risk is that McCoy of Charles get hurt. However, you have Hillis, so I think you'd be covered if Charles got hurt. You simply roll the dice with McCoy. SJax has ahistory of getting hurt anyhow, so he may not be any better hedge. Perhaps you could get the other owner to throw in an average RB (slightly better than your backups, but nothing too good (like a Donald Brown or Alex Green for example).

Please help me. viewtopic.php?t=527688
