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%
