Both QBs concussed! Trade Cutler/Crabtree for Freeman/Keller

Postby pman555 » Thu Nov 15, 2012 9:25 am

Hey guys, both of my QBs got concussed last week.
I had Vick starting and Cutler on the bench.
I picked up Nick Foles in case I couldn't get a deal done.

The other waiver wire QBs are: Sam Bradford, Alex Smith (also concussed), Mark Sanchez, Blaine Gabbert.

Do I trade Cutler and Crabtree for Freeman and Keller?
I have Mike Williams (TB) who could take Crabtree's place in my starting lineup. Keller is basically a non-factor, as I have Antonio Gates at my WR/TE slot.

Or should I just roll the dice with Foles until either Vick or Cutler come back?

Any advice would be appreciated!
Please help quickly so I can get the trade through before Sunday!

Thanks for the help with mine.

It's not a bad deal for you however I think I'd personally snag Bradford off the waiver wire since he has a home game against the jets this week. I doubt cutler will miss more than a week and Bradford should put up decent #s this week against the beat up jets D.

Stand pat or look for a better deal

I would definitely do the deal.

Freeman is coming on strong as of late. As long as teams are worried about Martin rushing for 240 on them Freeman should be able to put up numbers. Freeman also has the easier playoff schedule of the 2. Avg of the pass D Cutler will face is about 17 and avg Freeman will see is about 21 mainly because he gets NO in the semis and Stl in the finals.

Another reason I would look in to getting another QB is with how much the league is trying to cut down on concussions. If either of these guys get another, they are likely done for the year.

Williams should easily be able to step in for Crabtree. Same hold true about Martin. As long as D's are focusing on him, Williams will get his chances.

Thanks for Mine

Definitely do this deal, no brainer if you ask me. I would start Freeman over Cutler even when Cutler comes back so this isnt even a rental situation in my opinion. Plus I like Mike Williams just as much as i like Crabtree so its not like you woudl be losing much there. Only problem is that you are then overrelying on TB offense but other than that i think its a good deal
