Need Help with this Trade

Postby joejlitz » Sun Nov 18, 2012 9:35 am

Eli has killed my team in the last 4 weeks and the only QB that I can trade to get is Carson Palmer. The guy has offered me Palmer for Cruz straight up. Palmer is #6 overall QB. Cruz is #6 overall WR in our scoring league.

The only thing is, I don't know if I should do it. I already started Fitzpatrick so none of this matters till next week.

Eli is on BYE this week and has all this time to fix whatever it is that is wrong in NY. Plus, he has two tasty matchups when he gets back in the next 2 weeks - GB (#21) and WAS (#30). Palmer's matchups aren't as good, but they are not bad (CIN and CLE).

Should I pull the trigger or hold off?

I'm dangerously close to missing the playoffs and need to win at least 2 of my last 3.

I would do it. You have a strong enough core of WR's on your bench to make up for Cruz's loss. Palmer is a stud this year and he throws 50 times a game. Eli is nowhere near as solid as Palmer and he'll generate enough points to cover for Cruz's loss.
