I need to trade RG3..... WHIR

Postby SmokyMcNasty » Sat Oct 27, 2012 7:32 pm

RG3 is a beast and I have wanted to start him many weeks, but I can never go through with it because... well benching Brees is just idiotic... I have started RG3 once this season and that was on the Saints' bye week. I don't see any situation where I'm gonna bench Brees for RG3 ever, and RG3's points are wasting away on my bench.... so I have to trade him right?

I have posted a message to my league that I am willing to trade RG3 for a great WR. One of my good friends in my league offered me Julio Jones for RG3 when we were hangin out one night.. I agreed to the trade. But it is not official... but I'm starting to think twice about it. Jones has not been very consistent. And RG3 is the 3rd highest scoring QB in fantasy this season. I feel like I should be getting more...

My roster:

QB Drew Brees, NO QB Draft
RB Adrian Peterson, Min RB Draft
RB Alfred Morris, Wsh RB Draft
WR Brandon Marshall, Chi WR Draft
WR Vincent Jackson, TB WR P Draft
TE Heath Miller, Pit TE Free Agency
FLEX Trent Richardson, Cle RB Q Draft
D/ST Dolphins D/ST D/ST Free Agency
K Mason Crosby, GB K Free Agency
Bench Justin Blackmon, Jac WR Draft
Bench Robert Griffin III, Wsh QB Draft
Bench Anquan Boldin, Bal WR Draft
Bench Jets D/ST D/ST Draft
Bench Santana Moss, Wsh WR Free Agency
Bench Danny Amendola, StL WR Q Free Agency
Bench Andre Roberts, Ari WR Free Agency

His roster:
QB Tony Romo, Dal QB Draft
RB LeSean McCoy, Phi RB Draft
RB Willis McGahee, Den RB Draft
WR Julio Jones, Atl WR Draft
WR Demaryius Thomas, Den WR Draft
TE Jason Witten, Dal TE Draft
FLEX Josh Gordon, Cle WR Free Agency
D/ST Falcons D/ST D/ST Free Agency
K Blair Walsh, Min K Free Agency
Bench A.J. Green, Cin WR Draft
Bench Andy Dalton, Cin QB Free Agency
Bench Seahawks D/ST D/ST Free Agency
Bench Andre Brown, NYG RB Free Agency
Bench Phillip Tanner, Dal RB Free Agency
Bench LaRod Stephens-Howling, Ari RB Free Agency
Bench Titus Young, Det WR Q Free Agency

I was thinking maybe RG3 + one of my bench WRs for Julio Jones + Andy Dalton? Good trade? And no he won't give me AJ Green for him, so don't even suggest it!

Personally I would have suggested a RB but Julio Jones is no slouch. I think this is a fair trade as is but why ask for another QB in return? You have plenty of WR's on your bench but none the caliber of Jones. Unless you think you can get another top WR over Jones I would hold off on this deal. But don't wait too long. :-o Julio for RGIII is worth it.
