Ray Rice

Postby ohyeah55 » Tue Nov 20, 2012 2:37 pm

Hey guys, I'm thinking of trading for Ray Rice..
My Roster:
QB - Romo, Flacco
RB - Morris, Reece, McFadden, Redman
WR - Wayne, Austin, Julio Jones, Torrey Smith, Heyward-Bey
TE - Hernandez, Gresham

This is a PPR league and I'm thinking of doing Flacco, Wayne, and either Smith or Austin for Rice, Palmer, and Bess. Do you think its worth giving up those receivers for Rice?

Can you replace one of the receivers with a running back? Can you do Smith+Austin+Flacco and leave Wayne out? Also, if you do a deal with two WR's, then there's a good chance you're going to need backup off the wire as right now both Julio and Heyward might not play. Bess is just a throw-in and not playable. Is Danario Alexander available off the wire in your league? Or T.Y. Hilton/Avery?
Do you play three WR's in your league?

Next time include how many you start and how deep your league is.

If you're in a 10 team league with 2rb 2wr and a flex, then I'd consider it. There should be plenty on WW for you to bolster the WR ranks.

If he needs Flacco, then I'd float Wayne and Julio Jones who may or may not come through. But giving up both Wayne and Austin/Smith could hamstring you.

It's a tough one without more info. And to be honest, unless he's desperate at QB and WR, I don't see why he'd do it anyway. Is he that deep at RB that he can afford to dump Rice?

Is the other guy loaded at RB? Because you are not sending any RB the other way. But its a good trade for you because you have a lot of good WRs and is unloading a QB you dont need.
