10-Team, non-ppr. Give up Blackmon, get J. Thomas WHIR

Postby reign1 » Fri Oct 11, 2013 11:10 am

Started off him asking Blackmon for Gates, I countered with above. Also he asked if wanted to do Lacy, Blackmon for Mcfadden, Thomas though that hasnt been actually offered yet. I feel im selling high on Blackmon, Like what he did last week but against Rams crappy Pass Def and getting #2 scoring TE in Thomas really helps where Cook has killed me last 4 weeks. Regarding Mcfadden for my lacy.... I see on most sites Mcfadden rated higher and I like his homerun ability vs steady guy in lacy, dont know if GB will be that committed to the run and it did take 23-24 carries to hit 99 yds against a poor Detroit run D.

my team: (2-3)
QB: Stafford
RB: Spiller, Lacy, L. Miller, MJD, McGahee, Stacy
WR: D. Thomas, Bryant, Gordon, Blackmon, Jeffrey
TE: Cook
DST: Chiefs
K: Prater

His: (3-2)
QB: Vick
RB: McCoy, McFadden, Gore, F. Jackson, Green-Ellis
WR: Marshall, M. Williams, Jennings, M. Wallace, J. Jones
TE: J. Thomas, J. Witten, Gates
DST: Rams
K: Haushka

If you can get Thomas for Blackmon, I'd say do it. Instant upgrade to your TE situation. Don't be down on Lacy "only" getting 99 against Detroit. That is NOT a bad run defense there. Personally, I'd stay away from Gates. Your WR group can handle being without Blackmon.

help on mine?

This is a great deal for you, IMO. You're trading a guy who likely won't get much burn for you for an upgrade from mid-TE2 to high-TE1. Do this deal yesterday ;-D .

I'd stand pat re: DMC for Lacy. DMC is just too much of an injury risk. Lacy's offense might not be committed to the run, but the Rodgers aerial attack opens up some nice holes when the Packers do decide to run the ball.

I say make the trade for Thomas but not McFadden. The Thomas trade is a no brainer, but McFadden is way too injury prone and Lacy will start getting more and more holes as the Packers utilize the play action pass.

Do the Blackmon deal, don't do the lacy deal. I'd rather take a healthy 23 for 99 yds than 0 chance d/t injury w/ DMC
