Trading away keeper for potential championship? WHIR

Postby l1sten » Wed Nov 14, 2012 9:19 am

Hey guys,

Playing a guy this week and he sends me a message that in the event he loses to me (I'm already 100% in playoffs, he's out with a loss to me), that he wants to make a move planning for next year. We play a two keeper system where you lose the pick one round higher than they were drafted if you choose to keep, but no one who was drafted in rounds 1 or 2 is eligible.

He wants Demaryius, who would have been an obvious keep for me, but in exchange he's willing to deal CJ2K, Colston, and Steve Smith.

My roster looks like:
QB - Ryan, Freeman
RB - Rice, McFadden, Stewart, Ballard, Blount
WR - Thomas, Nicks, Nelson, Shorts, LeFell
TE - Gates

His looks like:
QB - Schaub, E. Manning
RB - Martin, CJ2K, Benson, Richardson, A. Brown
WR - AJ Green, Colston, Steve Smith, Wright
TE - Pettigrew

A few questions I need help on: a) Do I make the move at all? I mean, my team has the potential to be strong without this trade, but I think it adds a ton of insurance. Better teams than what I would end up with have lost championships, so I won't say I'm getting it handed to me, but it does give me a good shot. How much better is the shot than what I have now?
b) Anyone on his team you think I should take over what he's offering? I'd say Martin and Green are really the only pieces I can't touch.
c) I think making this trade also look as if I'm not just completely destroying him in it is key. I know he's getting what he wants out of it, but people in this league have vetoed deals for less (not what I would do but I can't stop them from doing it).

Let me know what you think, WHIR 100%

If you can make the trade look good I would do the deal. You could use the depth at RB2 and CJ2k is obviously a great compliment to Rice. You're taking a bit of a risk at WR with health issues because you'll be relying heavily on Jordy and Nicks who are both banged up. You'll definitely have to weigh that against the addition of CJ2k. Who would be your keepers following this trade?

Thanks for the help. If I move D. Thomas I'd probably end up keeping Stewart depending on how the RB situation in Carolina works out, and either Nicks or Nelson. I am looking into Rice's eligibility because we have a three year hold policy so technically I keep getting him in the third round but that may be done after this season. Frankly I overlooked how many years I'd had him.

I like keeping Demayrius/Jordy or Nicks better than J Stew but this trade will definitely better your chances of winnin some money this year. If you can keep Rice again its a no-brainer lol. Thanks for the help on mine.
