Got rid of Arian!

Postby jeff.miller21 » Mon Sep 02, 2013 5:27 pm

I draft Arian Foster and was worried about his injuries.. And someone in my league took him at full value.

I got Ray Rice and Dez Bryant for Arian Foster, Reggie Wayne, and Shane Vereen

Good deal, right???

People need to realized that Arian Foster is still Arian Foster. I honestly wouldnt have gotten rid of him. You however lucked out on who you got in return. Rice will have a good year a little downgrade from Foster and Dez Bryant is a huge upgrade over an aging (yet still chugging along) Reggie Wayne. My only slight concern is why Toss in Vereen? Would you have played him in a flex role? Do you have enough depth to justify tossing in a RB with potential?

I still would have kept Foster. The trade would have still been fair except for you adding Vereen in there. IMO

Throwing vereen in there may be an unpopular choice but if a) you really wanted to unload foster and b) you have bench depth to survive including him in the deal then I say good trade :)

For my Flex spot I have Reggie Bush so Vereen would not have started in my Flex spot

I like this trade, Rice is a slight downgrade to Arian, and Dez is a big upgrade on Reggie (which affects your starting lineup!). I don't think Vereen is going to have much value.
