Let's play the trade game...

Postby FinzNation1972 » Tue Oct 30, 2012 3:43 pm

Fantasy football has officially taken over my life...

I'm looking for some advice, with only a few weeks until trade deadline I'm trying to get my team ready for the playoff push.

-12 team (4 keepers) PPR (points-per-reception)

I'm pretty stacked at WR however I'm extremely thin at RB. My Wr's have been carrying me this far I'm currently sitting at 4-4 (5th place) I want to move a WR for a RB but having trouble deciding who to move.


ROSTER

QB- Mike Vick, Andy Dalton

RB: Alfred Morris, Reggie Bush, Daryl Richardson

WR: Victor Cruz, Vincent Jackson, Eric Decker, Hakeem Nicks, Davone Bess

TE: Brandon Pettigrew, Dennis Pitta

K: Lawerence Tynes

DST: Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos


I'm leaning towards trading Victor Cruz (#1 ranked WR in PPR formats) for a stud RB. Something like a trent richardson or adrain peterson. Or trading Hakeem Nicks for a lower caliber RB, but because Cruz is ripping it up I would like to sell him at his highest value.

Any input on who I should go after? Any comments would be much appreciated!


Cheers..

Well that was quick, I put up a post in my league saying cruz was on the block.

I just accepted this offer.

Torrey Smith
Stevan Ridely -------> Victor Cruz


What do ya'll think

Just my opinion but... You probably could have gotten more and I still don't trust NE running game. I think moving Nicks or Cruz was the right move for sure, but I imagine you could have gotten a better RB than Ridley. I own Cruz and I would have never let him go for those two. I also own Torrey Smith... prepare to be frusturated. You didn't really need Torrey IMO.

I find it hard to not trust NE running game, Ridely is top 5 in the league in rushing yards and it's not like teams are going to stack the box to stop the run, or else Tom Brady will have a field day with them. Teams are forced to back off when playing the pats giving ridely more holes. Also with the pats blowing out teams they will us the run game to kill the clock. I understand they have a number of guys in there backfield but with 700+ yards already I see them continuing to run Stevan hard.

As for Torrey Smith, It's more of a depth thing as Nicks has been banged up all season. I offered the same owner Cruz for T.rich but he wouldn't do it. I may have been able to get more but maybe not its hard to predict how guys will finish the year.

One thing for sure is I feel like my team got alot stronger off the trade.


Appreciate the feedback though

Cheers.
