Peyton Manning for Darren McFadden...WHIR

Postby skratchmo » Thu Nov 15, 2012 12:58 am

I was offered Peyton Manning for my Darren McFadden. Would you do this trade? McFadden hasn't done anything all year and coming off of an injury can he be much more effective? My current QB situation isn't terrible with Luck starting. He's been doing well for me lately. I'm not sure on this one. Opinions...

League:
12 Team non-PPR, 6pt TD's
1QB, 2RB, 2WR, TE, WR/RB/TE, K, DEF

My team:
QB - Cutler, Luck,
RB - McFadden, Murray, R. Bush, Ivory
WR - Nicks, A. Brown, Bowe, A. Roberts, T.Y. Hilton
TE - Gonzalez, Myers
K - D. Bailey
D/ST - Chicago

His Team:
QB - Manning, Ryan, Freeman
RB - Forte, Charles, Wells
WR - Colston, Marshall, Amendola, Jennings, M. Williams
TE - Keller
K - Tucker
D/ST - Tampa Bay

Only if you can use Luck to secure you primarily a quality replacement for McFadden or secondarily an upgrade at WR.

considering who you're left with at RB if you traded away mcfadden, theres no way i'd take this deal.

I wouldn't make this deal unless you can line up another solid RB.

If he gave you Amendola though I would consider it.

So Manning/Amendola for DMC would be worth a look

help with mine?

So here's what ended up happening:

He gave P. Manning and Amendola for my McFaddedn and Bowe. I was actually relieved to get rid of them both. Huge disappointments this year. Opinions on the trade?

So my team now looks like:

QB - P. Manning, Luck, Cutler
RB - R. Bush, C. Ivory, D. Murray
WR - Nicks, Amendola, A. Roberts, A. Brown, T.Y. Hilton,
TE - Gonzalez, Myers
K - Bailey
D/ST - Chicago

Not bad- now I'd try and package Luck + Bush to get a better RB OR Luck + Nicks to get an elite WR

I'd see if anyone else in your league needs a solid QB and start there

I think that you got a pretty good value. I agree that you need to package up one of your RB's with Luck to get a serious upgrade.

I would try and do that but the trade deadline has passed. So I'm stuck with what I have except for WW pickups.
