Doug Martin for my Chris Johnson and Moreno?

Postby Harry Halfzeees » Sun Oct 13, 2013 3:44 pm

Martin isn't what he used to bet this year but this is an interesting trade. Chris Johnson has been horrible. Do I take this trade?

I'm on the fence here, and when I'm on the fence I usually stand pat rather than doing the deal. First of all: get Knowshon in your lineup, dude! Bench CJ?K. If you do that, you're basically looking at RB1/RB2/FLEX combos of Lynch/Moreno/Sproles before the trade and Lynch/Martin/Sproles after the trade. I'm not sure having Martin in there makes you better.

I do have Moreno starting I just never update my lineup on here. Went lynch, Moreno, and Reggie Wayne in the flex this week. I thought about countering with Sproles and CJ?K for Martin. What do you think of that? I think it is closer.

Iffy on whether I'd rather have Sproles or Martin ROS, but this one is definitely closer. Would still hold tight if I were in your shoes.

Heh, that's kind of what I figured. I'd see if you can swing another deal involving CJ?K and leave Martin alone; don't do an iffy trade just so you can get rid of a guy. Look for RB-starved owners and try for some WR-for-RB deals, IMO. Don't force anything. CJ isn't a starter for you right now and you likely won't get a starter in return for him, so you can afford to sit on him and sell high when he has a big game.

Thats good advice. I wasnt going to do the deal for that alone. I was not even really consider accepting but I wanted to get some other opinions to confirm my thoughts. Johnson is on the bench until I see something from him.

I would counter with CJ?K/B.Jacobs for D.Martin and see if he bites. Or CJ?K/Sproles for D.Martin. You have Ellington on the bench and he is doing just as well as Sproles in standard scoring leagues (not PPR). I would hold on to Moreno for now.

Moreno is at a high point in value, but it'll likely continue until he gets hurt. He's seeing lots of 6-man boxes b/c everybody is scared of the Den pass attack.
If you deal him, I'd shoot a little higher than Martin (i know it sounds crazy). Maybe a package deal to get Charles or Lynch or something like that. Martin is a buy low, but I think you could get him for less right now. Plus idk if he'll bounce back like we want him to
I was pissed when VJax vultured his td run w/ a 1yd pass yesterday haha

Help w/ mine?
