Have RB, Will Trade... Need TE

Postby markthomas » Wed Nov 21, 2012 1:17 am

I'm looking to trade one of my RB's to fill the void at TE. Since I only picked up Matt Prater for the bye week, I can easily just drop him for another marginally better TE (both Kyle Rudoplh (Min) and Brandon Myers (Oak) are still available on waivers). However, with a glut at RB and MJD possibly coming back this week, I thought MJD might be good trade bait for a top-tier TE. With Gronk out, should I offer MJD-for-Jimmy Graham straight up? What about offering Doug Martin, who is currently red hot? Is Aaron Hernandez worth taking a look at? I feel like there is no need to keep Leshoure or MJD on the bench when I am getting such piss poor production from the TE spot. I should also add that (despite being 3rd in points) I am currently only in 8th place and desperate to win out to get into the playoffs. Any thoughts?

Roster:

QB - Matt Ryan
WR - Demaryius Thomas
WR - Andre Johnson
RB - Doug Martin

I think you can definetly make a deal, I'd prefer to keep MJD and deal LeShoure for Hernandez. If that doesn't work I would then try the MJD for Graham, but I'd also be fine with Myers off the WW if neither went through..

Help with mine?

If you trade Martin for a TE I will hunt you down and beat you with a stick.

You aren't that deep at all, so trading MJD or Mikel is a big deal. If you can get Top Jimmy for MJD, I'd do it. Who knows what he'll be like when/if he comes back. It's not his season.

But if you can't get Jimmy, or maybe Gonzo, I'd settle for waivers and play the matchup game.

My thoughts exactly. I mean, after Jimmy Graham I feel the dropoff is so steep that no TE could be worth a solid RB.

Myers should get the job done, don't make any of those trades.

Mine?
