Originally offered decker and bell for Calvin and he countered with Graham for Calvin and Gonzalez. 12-team, redraft Full PPR, ESPN scoring. I feel up front calvin even straight up for graham is fair but for some reason i also feel getting grahams 20-30 pts a week from a position that usually gives 5-10 plus while my receivers in decker, shorts arent big names, there giving me a solid 15-20 plus i am a believer in Amendola being a beast if/when gets healthy. Does the gain of calvin above my WR make up for the loss of graham to gonzalez?
QB: Stafford RB: J. Charles, R. Bush, L. Bell, Z. Stacy WR: Decker, Shorts, Amendola, Thompkins, Sanders, Hill TE: Graham, Clay, Cook DST: Chiefs K: Dawson
QB: Brees, Wilson RB: Powell, Pierce, Ball, Rodgers WR: C. Johnson, Welker, A. Johnson, Royal TE: Gonzalez, Miller DST: 49ers, Dolphins K: Succop, Crosby
Why do you carry three TE? Your team does need a WR desperately... At the end of the day its a lateral move to me. I'd rather have Graham personally, even though Megatron is an absolute beast. Try moving Bell or Stacy to him with for Welker (its a smaller move but an upgrade).
I would have made this trade, before Jones got hurt. Now with him out, and Roddy not at 100% I think Gonzo gets doubled all day long!! I agree, that you should throw another RB at this guy. He is weak at RB.
picked up clay today just because best player by far on waivers, wether thats future trade bait or just keeping off others rosters remains to be seen.
Pretty sure gonzalez has been getting doubled already for awhile, definitely was against jets this week.
going through numbers im leaning toward declining this deal. I always try to get the best player in any trade, offering 2 for 1 and 3 for 2 deals. reasoning is that you only have so many roster spots to start. Here are point avg for each player in my league:
cal johnson=21.25 gonz=17
decker 16.4 shorts 16.0
brees 31.8 staff 23.8
Even though combined total of gonz and calv(38.25)>(29.9) of graham, its taking 2 roster spots instead of 1. Graham and either reciever I already have give more total pts. (45.9-46.4) Plus I think Amendola's 23 pt week 1 will be more the norm when he gets back to healthy.
