Ok so this is a 12 team, 4 pt passing TD, 6 pt other tds, 10 per point rushing/receiving. 25 per point passing. PPR
I was offered:
Randall Cobb, CJ Spiller and Jason Witten for Marshall, Sproles and Graham. I think Cobb has potential for a huge season PPR (don't get me wrong, I know Marshall caught 120 passes last season). I could also get Finley if I wanted him instead of Witten. I have confidence Spiller will bounce back, and while Sproles is solid in PPR I think Spillers ceiling is a lot higher. Is the slight downgrade at 2 positions worth grabbing Spiller?

I'd pass if I were in your shoes. You're right that it's a slight downgrade at two positions for and upgrade in one. However, with the timeshare we saw last week, Spiller's health history, and rumblings of FJax getting more involved, I'm not sure how much of an upgrade Spiller really is in PPR formats. Not saying he's not better than Sproles--he is--but I don't know that he's worth giving up a top 5 WR and the top TE in the game.
i'd stay put esp b/c it's ppr. sproles invaluable and more consistent in ppr format. marshall and cobb is probably a wash. graham > witten. spiller splitting carries/touches is concerning, but is a perfect time to buy low. this happened last year as well and although i didn't appreciate the stress, i ended up in the super bowl.
12 Team non-ppr, standard scoring (6pts/td) qb, 2rb, 2wr, 1te, 1 flex (te/wr/rb), def, k
QB: Rodgers RB: AP, SJax, Drich, Ingram WR: Jordy, TY Hilton, Givens, Golden Tate, Vincent Brown TE: Gronk, stream DEF: stream K: Dawson
I would not make this trade.. Marshall > Cobb and if week 1 is any indication of how the season is gonna play out Fred Jackson will have a big role in that offense, or big enough to deny Spiller of the crazy workload he was promised in the preseason.
So it's unanimous to stay put. I feel like Spiller's week 1 is weighing too heavily on some of these opinions. While I appreciate everyone's input I have to play devil's advocate.
Last season, Sproles rushed for 250 and 1 TD. Caught 75 passes for 700 yards and 7 TDs. I think it's fair to say he will have a comparable season.
Spiller rushed for 1250 yards and 6 TDs. Caught 56 passes for 450 yards and 2 TDs.
While it's certainly a question of whether he is going to reproduce that, or split carries...I think we are being unfair when we say that they have similar value in a PPR format. And some one has to agree that he still has the potential to surpass last seasons numbers? Spiller had 22 touches in week 1. He just didn't have a good week. I'm not concerned with his talent though.
Maybe the current proposal is giving up a little too much, but I think Spiller is FAR more valuable than Sproles (even in PPR) and would love to get him after week 1 with so much negative attention around his performance.
