Graham + LeShoure ::FOR:: Beast-mode + Davis WHIR

Postby munstermann » Fri Nov 16, 2012 4:53 pm

So I've been shopping around for a solid RB to help me through playoffs... and this offer just appeared.

I trade Jimmy Graham and Mikel LeShoure for Marshawn Lynch and Vernon Davis

My Roster is WR heavy, RB light... my WR's being Calvin Johnson, Reggie Wayne, Eric Decker, and Brian Hartline. My RB's are T-Rich, Leshoure, Andre Brown, and Starks.

I have Heath Miller as my backup TE... I feel like my TE effectiveness will drop a ton, as Miller doesn't have Roethlisberger throwing to him anymore and Vernon Davis has been slackin big time.

Then again, I've already secured a playoff birth. I think Roethlisberger will be back in a couple weeks, and when Playoff's roll around Miller may be back to kicking ass and taking names. Anyways, thoughts?

Leave a Link.

I don't think I'd do it. Big Ben can't come back until the rib completely heals. That may be another 4-6 weeks. You might only get a week or two out of him throwing to Miller. Depending on what happens to Bradshaw, Brown might end up being a reliable RB2.

Although giving up Jimmy Graham isn't particularly ideal at this point, getting BeastMODE for Leshoure is f'n awesome. I would def take this trade, because B-Mode is money in the bank and in reality Lynch at RB is far more consistent from a production standpoint than Graham from the TE position. Just my opinion though...

Okay looking at this again, I can see your point. If the poster could claim another TE off of waivers like Dwayne Allen, Brandon Myers, or even Kyle Rudolph, then I'd most likely do it. I wonder if the Lynch owner has someone else more useful he could throw in besides Davis? Honestly, if I took the trade, I'd wait this sunday out and see which out of Davis and Heath played worse and drop him for one of the TE's I mentioned. Note: if you do this deal, make sure you clear a spot to handcuff Beast Mode with Turbin. Also, check out this link, it's update weekly. Helpful when considering trade possibilities:

This^
The returns you are getting at RB likely outweigh the loss at TE. Just makes a more balanced team.
