Ryan & Mathews for Eli & Foster

Postby Team Gooch » Wed Nov 14, 2012 11:55 am

Guy is fed up with Eli and offering Eli & Arian Foster for my Matt Ryan & Ryan Mathews. Eli has been in a slump these last few weeks but I think he'll come out of it with games remaining against Packers, Redskins, Saints, Falcons, & Ravens. Ryan Mathews has done nothing but tick me off so Im thinking this is a no-brainer since Im getting Foster. Im currently in 1st at 9-1. Do I take the trade or is Matt Ryan going to continue to be that much better than Eli? I'll have to pick up another QB for this week with Eli on a bye but there are a few that have good matchups this week.

My Team--10 team league, Standard Scoring non ppr, 6pts all tds. Start QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1RB/WR Flex, TE, K, D
QB Ryan
RB Rice, CJ, Mathews, MJD, Jennings
WR Julio Jones, Fitzgerald, Antonio Brown, Maclin, Floyd
TE Graham
K Janokowski
D SF

Also, should I drop Rashad Jennings and pick up Marcel Reece for my Flex spot?

I would take this deal foster,rice,cj combo is probably unbeatable. I think eli will rebound with nicks getting more healthy just pick up a qb on the wire for this week. Foster is way better than matthews now that matthews is also losing carries to ronnie brown.

Tempting offer with the possibility to acquire Foster but the more I think about it I'm going against the grain here and say that you are better off with Ryan at QB than having Foster on your roster. You're 9-1 with the present squad and if MJD returns you will have your 3rd RB without giving up one of the top QB's in the league today. I would stay put with that offer and wait for now.

Yeah thats what worries me. I have a good thing going right now so why mess with it, but, it sure would be nice to have Foster, Rice, & CJ/MJD. I do believe Eli and the Giants will get the offense rolling again so I dont think I will take that big of hit at QB if I lose Ryan.

If you truly believe Eli will get over his dead arm during the bye week, then sure. But I'm not buying. Your RB are crazy deep and you have MJD coming back that you can bench Mathews if you feel the need. I'd much rather have Ryan & MJD/Mathews over Eli & Foster.

help with mine?

I would stay as I think your team is strong and I am not convinced Eli is not a long term problem. Long seaon after super bowl high.

Foster is a huge upgrade over Mathews. With Eli and the Giants getting a week off to rest and heal up, I think their offense will start to produce once again and Eli should be putting up similar numbers to Ryan.
