Should I trade Vincent Jackson for Ryan Mathews?

Postby TheShivaOwner » Tue Nov 20, 2012 2:20 pm

I'm now locked into the playoffs and seeking help to improve my roster... For starters, I know I need a more solid 2nd Running Back... Ryan Mathews has a favorable schedule in the playoffs, and I'm desperate for a better Running Back.. I have a ton of depth at WR, do you think it would be worth the gamble? (NOTE* I'm in an ESPN 10 Team Standard League)

My Roster---------
QB---Tom Brady, Micheal Vick
RB---Chris Johnson, Felix Jones, Marcel Reece, Vick Ballard, Donald Brown
WR---Vincent Jackson, Andre Johnson, Denarius Moore, Steve Smith, Danny Amendola
TE---Tony Gonzalez
Def---Falcons, Patriots
K---Sebastian Janikowski

Thanks for taking a look, your advice will help tremendously!!!

When posting, you should mention if it's a ppr or not and how many spots as that makes a difference. Do not do this trade. I believe ESPN league deadline is this week, so you can't capitalize on a potential good Vick performance should he play this week.

In a standard or ppr:
see if you can sell a combination of Jones/Reece/Amendola/Denarius/Smith/Ballard(+Brown if necessary) for Mathews. You could use Johnson, but I wouldn't. Whatever you do, see if you can get your hands on Danario Alexander is he's on the wire. I honestly don't think your RB situation is all that bad. Reece and Jones are decent RB2's. You could try to trade for McFadden on the cheap to handcuff Reece in case he comes back. I think you could use another serviceable WR. Maybe try to buy low on Nicks or Harvin. Hope this helps.

I like the idea of going after DMC. He should be cheap right now. Honestly, I don't see Ryan Matthews as a stellar upgrade. Screw the schedule, he's been in double digits once this season. I have more faith in your current roster than I do in Matthews.

If you trade Vincent at all, get someone with more upside.
