Postby handslikesecrets » Wed Nov 14, 2012 12:50 pm

Do I trade Aaron Hernandez (and Rashad Jennings, who I have no use for) for Ryan Mathews?

If you are desperately hurting at the RB position and you have a good TE filling in for Hernandez I might consider the trade as is. Otherwise you are giving up a top 5 TE for a top 25 RB that is currently losing touches to a 30-yr old RB. :-/

Olsen is serviceable till Hernandez returns, then history. Post your roster.

This is kinda tough. If Demarco Murray comes back hot, Mathews would be a flex play, and you already have 2 solid WRs in Moore and Hartline that you could put there (or even BJGE). If Murray stays unhealthy or comes back soft then Mathews could fill in your RB#2 slot. Olsens a solid backup with a relatively soft schedule, but Hernandez really cant be denied. Bottom line is I dont see you having a better team after the trade.
