URGENT: Spiller/Steve Smith for McCoy/Stevie Johnson? WHIR

Postby tracyjesq » Thu Nov 15, 2012 7:04 pm

10 team 0.5 PPR league. We start 2 RBs, 3 WRs, and 3 flex.

My team:
Here's my team:
QB - Vick, Freeman
RB - Ray Rice, Demarco Murray, CJ Spiller, Gore, LeShoure, Donald Brown, Stephens-Howling, Pearce
WR - Fitz, Steve Smith, Demaryius, Nate Washington
TE - Witten, Miller

His team:
QB - Newton
RB - McCoy, Woodhead, FJax, Dwyer, DeAngelo, Wells
WR - Marshall, Floyd, Stevie, Sanders, Bryant, Rice, Antonio Brown, Sanders
TE - Gonzales

This is the 3rd iteration of his offer - he really wants Spiller. I rejected his other offers involving my trading away Demaryius Thomas but I'm tempted by this one. Spiller plays tonight so I need to make a decision fast! Leave a link and I'll help you. Thanks!

I would do this trade, I have Mccoy ahead of spiller and stevie not too much behind smith. I think that this is a good deal for you, and even though spiller may be a beast, can he take the load? and what happens when fred jackson comes back?

help me out?

I would probably do it. The Bills have shown every intention of using both back when they are both healthy, so when Fred comes back, he's going to eat into Spillers' production.

Yeah definitely do it, Spiller is better this week but McCoy better ROS. WRs are pretty much a wash

No brainer deal. Also, you never know if Carolina shuts Smith down to tank for a good pick, they benched him last week.

I know you have probably made your decision already but I still wanted to weigh in.

I would probably do this, but I don't think its an obvious accept like everyone says.

I'm not sure how it is in PPR, but in my league Spiller is ranked 7th while McCoy is 11th and that is including one week where Spiller was injured and the other where he returned from injury and was limited. I don't think the timeshare is nearly as big of a deal as people are making it out to be. Spiller is such a dynamic player he doesn't need to touch the ball many times to make something happen and is still averaging 6.6 ypc. If he were the only back on that team he would be amazing and probably in the top 2.

McCoy is good, don't get me wrong, but I don't really love that offense. I think the Vick injury only complicates things. Teams will know with a rookie QB back there, they will be leaning on McCoy and packing the box.

The reason I would do this is based solely on the playoff schedule .

Spiller gets Stl, Sea, Mia
McCoy gets TB, Cin, Wsh

I probably am biased since I am a Spiller owner, but the more I watch him the more I like him.

I also feel the WR are comparable and don't think that is the questions mark of this trade.
