Offer: McFadden for Nicks?

Postby Megalodon » Tue Jun 18, 2013 2:11 pm

12-team DYNASTY LEAGUE:

I am stacked at WR, i also have all the NYG WRs Nicks, VCruz and Randel. I'm looking to improve my RB, i have a big drop off after AFoster.

I was offered Darren McFadden for Hakeem Nicks straight up.

Both have health concerns but I like the upside for McFadden if he can put together a healthy season.

Would you do this trade if you had Nicks?

Thanks!

I moved this topic to Dynasty and Keeper Questions ;-D

Based on your team, I would make the trade. Both are a bit of a injury risk, but I think this will improve your team overall because you do not have a solid RB2.

In a vacuum I wouldn't take this deal but in your case of needing an RB I would say take the deal. Maybe do as stated above and see if you can swap spots in a round too.

thanks guys... made the counter to swap positions in the 2nd Round.

This would really help my RB situation, currently:
A Foster
M Bush
M Leshore
C Ivory
S Vereen

I might get lucky with Chris Ivory

thanks for the help!

a deal was struck today:

I gave up: Nicks, Hakeem NYG WR Year 2013 Draft Pick 3.11
He gave up: McFadden, Darren OAK RB Year 2013 Draft Pick 5.02

I ended up dropping a little in the later rounds but this really helps my RB group if DMac can stay healthy.

I think it's a smart trade for your team. The picks are worth next to nothing so no big deal on the swap.

As another poster stated, in a vacuum, I wouldn't do the deal, but with your roster makeup it works.

wait... I'm confused. Wasn't the original offer to you straight up? How did negotiations make this trade worse for you (even if only slightly). Strange. Still, I think this is a solid trade for you.
