Sproles/Dalton for Peyton/Ball? whir

Postby montrealbimmer » Mon Sep 02, 2013 2:04 pm

12 team PPR league. QB's went crazy early in the draft and one genius decided to draft Brews, Ryan and Newton. Obviously he's the ideal trading partner since his RB's are Rice, Greene, Michael and Leshoure. however there's another manager looking to upgrade his RB2 with Sproles.

Here's my team.

QB: Eli, Dalton
RB: Charles, MJD, Sproles, Joique, Randle
WR: Bowe, A. Brown, Thompkins, Blackmon, Patterson
TE: Graham
DST: Houston
K: Dawson

So I would be sending Sproles and Dalton and getting back Montee Ball and Peyton Manning. I feel like having Sproles as a Flex in PPR is very solid, so I'd be downgrading my Flex and weakening my RB depth. However I will be upgrading my QB.

What do you guys think?

I'm probably in the minority here, but I'd say stand put. I like the upside that Dalton has. With the weapons he has around him, I am expecting that 'breakout year' to happen for him. So, I'm saying you don't need the upgrade at QB, especially at the cost of RB depth. Not a good move, IMO.
