Buy Low on Cruz - WHIR

Postby Falim » Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:15 am

So I've secured a playoff spot and want to get my roster ready. I'm fairly weak at WR. The guy with Cruz has Wayne, Cruz, and Nelson but his RBs are Jackson, Andre Brown, Michael Bush, and Shonn Green. Given my roster, what should I offer for Cruz. He's also 5-5 and is in danger of losing the 4th playoff spot.

8-Team Standard (8-1-1)
QB: Brady
RB: Forte, Martin, Mathews, McGahee, J.Stewart
WR: Harvin, Cobb, T.Smith, Lloyd, S.Rice, A.Brown
TE: Graham, Gates
D/ST: Texans
K: Janikowski

I was thinking of something like Torrey Smith/Cobb and McGahee/Mathews for Cruz.

I would hang on to McGahee if possible. If you could get him to bite on either of those receivers with Mathews I would take it for sure. I have a feeling you might have I bump it up to McGahee or Forte though...

I would offer Forte straight up or maybe Forte/Lloyd to add marginal value.

Help with mine?

I would offer a 2-2 trade instead of a 2-1 as you are suggesting. If Cruz is his top WR you will have to offer a decent RB in return for the other owner to consider. Try S.Rice/McGahee for Cruz/M.Bush and see if he bites.
