Richardson/Heyward-Bey for Thomas/Green-Ellis??? 100% WHIR!!

Postby LWCrunner55 » Tue Nov 13, 2012 4:11 pm

I was offered the following trade...


I give: Trent Richardson
Darrius Heyward-Bey

I receive: Demaryius Thomas
BenJarvis Green-Ellis

I'm pretty set at RB with having Rice and Lynch and would use Green-Ellis this week since Lynch is on a bye and Green-ellis plays KC. I'm looking to get another good WR and Thomas seems to be ok after the scare in the game. He gets is looks and puts up points on a consistant basis. I think I can make the trade since I'm so deep at RB. Should I do it?
QB- M. Ryan, T. Pryor
RB- A. Morris, L. Bell, A. Ellington, C. Ivory, M. James, D. Martin
WR- J. Nelson, A. Brown, J. Boykin, D. Heyward-Bey,

I would not do that trade. :-t

It would be nice to add Thomas to your WR core but you take a definite hit at your RB depth with the acquisition of BJGE. Richardson is a definite keeper and a workhorse with the evolving Cleveland offense and is a better threat to produce on a weekly basis than BGJE. I wouldn't sacrifice top RB depth and value to upgrade your WR depth and value this late in the season.

Even though I'm probably not gonna start Richardson? I have Rice and Lynch ahead of him...

With Lynch on a BYE this week you will have to start Richardson instead. And I like Richardson this week moreso than BJGE against KC.

Post the other team's roster along with your roster. I take it the roster in your sig is not the roster in question with this thread.
