Trade Proposed: WRs Fitzgerald and Amendola for RB Matthews

Postby roguelaughter » Thu Nov 08, 2012 2:19 pm

For some unknown reason, I am sitting at the bottom of a league with a very good roster. A friend of mine proposed a trade and I would like to know if it's a good idea. He proposes to give me his WRs Larry Fitzgerald and Danny Amendola for my RB Ryan Matthews. It's a head to head league.

This is my active roster:

Josh Freeman, TB QB
Marshawn Lynch, Sea RB
Ryan Mathews, SD RB
Calvin Johnson, Det WR
Nate Washington, Ten WR
Heath Miller, Pit TE
Arian Foster, Hou RB
Texans D/ST D/ST
David Akers, SF K

My bench:

Jordy Nelson, GB WR Q
Jermichael Finley, GB TE P
Michael Bush, Chi RB
Matt Schaub, Hou QB
Steelers D/ST D/ST
Andy Dalton, Cin QB
Connor Barth, TB K

This is his active roster:

Eli Manning, NYG QB
Chris Johnson, Ten RB
Vick Ballard, Ind RB
Steve Smith, Car WR
Michael Crabtree, SF WR
Jason Witten, Dal TE
Shonn Greene, NYJ RB
Giants D/ST D/ST
Matt Bryant, Atl K

This is his bench:

Larry Fitzgerald, Ari WR
Steven Jackson, StL RB
Percy Harvin, Min WR Q
Jay Cutler, Chi QB
Alex Green, GB RB
Danny Amendola, StL WR Q
LaRod Stephens-Howling, Ari RB

So, what should I do? I'm hoping this will help me improve.

Do you need this weeks win to stay in the playoff hunt? If so, getting Fitz this week is a bad idea.

If you can win without him, I'm still not sure tbh. You're trading inconsistency for inconsistency. Fitz is a bonafide talent for sure, but that QB situation is just awful...and Roberts has multiple times gotten more targets than him. Housler even looked to get quite a bit more involved last week and that's what you'd expect from a team with such bad QB play -- check down's to rb's, te's, and slot recievers. I'd try to get better consistency than Fitz if you're going to switch things up.

Here's mine: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=529083
16 team .5 PPR (7-3)

QB-Cam Newton
WR/RB-Frank Gore
WR/RB-Chris Johnson
WR/RB-Marques Colston
WR/TE-Larry Fitzgerald
WR/TE-Titus Young/Laurent Robinson
TE-Rob Gronkowski
K-Sebastian Janikowski

Bench -- Big Ben
