Trade of Injured Players (WHIR)

Postby SumG » Mon Nov 19, 2012 10:35 am

I got an interesting trade proposal this morning and am wondering if I should take it.

12-team PPR league

Give: Aaron Hernandez
Get: Maurice Jones-Drew

My team:
RB-C.Johnson, Mendenhall
WR- A.J. Green, D. Moore
TE- J. Graham
W/R/T - S. Johnson
Def - Dallas
RBs - L. Stevens-Howling, V. Ballard, D. Brown, K. Hunter, J. Rodgers
WRs - K. Britt
TE - Hernandez

Leave a link and I'll try to help.

It is interesting, my first reaction was to take the deal because MJD is potentially a top-tier RB if he comes back healthy, Hernandez will miss at least another week and you already have a stud TE in Graham. BUT with Gronk out, Hernandez has a real chance to be Brady's #1 big play/red zone target, which is HUGE. Also consider that RB is a more physically demanding position than TE, if MJD and Hernandez are both less than 100%, who will perform better? Likely Hernandez. Also do the 1-9 Jaguars really have much incentive to rush MJD back onto the field? Compare that to the Pats who are starving for TEs right now.
