Need some advice on a trade offer

Postby JoeyFF » Tue Jan 01, 2013 3:58 pm

Hi, my 1st post here on the forum.

Need some advice, I took over a not so great dynasty team and my keepers would be...

Julio jones
Maclin
Stewart
Jacquizz
Moreno
Djax
Lamar miller
Cecil shorts

Ok, so we can all admit my team is in rough shape but I was offered Reggie Wayne and Cobb for Julio...what's your thoughts on the deal? I can play only 1 RB and 4 WR's

Thanks

Welcome to the Cafe.

There's just no way I do this deal. Julio is a long-term building block for your squad, especially with your starting requirements.

Cobb is intriguing, I think his upside is a low-end WR1... but not the #1 overall WR upside that Julio offers IMHO. Wayne and his short window of future production doesn't make up the difference.

agree,Wayne is at the end of his career and while Cobb is a nice pickup he's not worth trading away Julio

Agreed, stick with Julio, and look at the othe Indy WR's......Wayne wasn't even their best WR at year end....he had silly numbers early in the year and the young guys came on at the end of the year......

Be Patient and build through the draft and waiver wire........

Good Luck!!

Thanks everyone for the feedback. My biggest problem is that i love to make deals and don't want a team that will take years before I compete.
