    Fantasy Football: Trade Weigh In

    This is the trade that is being proposed to me in a 10 team head-to-head PPR league in which my team and the other team are both 0-2

    My Team
    A. Rogers
    J. Addai
    Chicago Def

    Other Team
    R. Rice
    R. Moreno
    GB Def

    This would leave me with the following players, (Starters going forward are in bold in which we start 2 qb, 2 rb, 3 wr, 1 te, 2 k, & 2 def

    QB
    C. Palmer
    S. Bradford
    J. Clausen

    RB
    Tolbert
    A. Foster
    J. Charles
    R. Rice
    R. Moreno

    WR
    M. Colston
    M. Flloyd
    D. Thomas

    M. Clayton

    TE
    C. Cooley

    K
    N. Kaeding
    R. Birnos
    N. Folk

    Def
    Phily Def
    GB Def


    I don't think I am giving up too much as it would allow me to lockdown RB points as I don't have a true starter right now for my RB 2 position. Feedback?

    Why in the world do you have 3 QBs

    no way you do this deal. look forward to a winless season if you're choosing between bradford, clausen and palmer every week.

    Agreed. Rodgers and Addai are some points you are giving up for, IMO, is not equal to what you are getting.

    The trade actually looks good by itself, but not for your team.

    The weakness of your team is WRs right now. If you had to sacrifice Rodgers, you need to be able to get an top WR to pair with Colston, along with a mid tier QB.

    Re: Fantasy Football: Trade Weigh In

    Not a good trade for you. You would handicap yourself at quarterback and overload yourself at running back. No need for all those running back points to rot on your bench.

    Maybe counter his trade by subtracting Moreno and adding whoever his starting QB is.

    Re: Fantasy Football: Trade Weigh In

    Ray Rice gets you nothing right now and losing a stud like Rodgers kills your QB position. Stupid Trade

    Re: Fantasy Football: Trade Weigh In

    that would be world class stupid if you made that trade

    side note: if you want to play in my league next year let me know.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    I agree with most everyone else. Bad deal for you. Keep Rodgers and be patient, he will start lighting it up soon.

    Re: Fantasy Football: Trade Weigh In

    Don't make the trade man, you have Rodgers, the #1 QB in Fantasy this year.

    Run with Foster, Addai, and Moreno this year as your RBs.

    The person who asked why you have 3QB, I agree, drop one of those, but more importantly, drop 2 of your 3 kickers. Run with one until his bye week and just pick someone else.

    That would free up 3 roster spots and pick up some WRs.

    DON'T MAKE THE TRADE!!

    Not going to make this trade after some further feedback/research. Going to ride Foster/Addai until the end of the season as my two main rb's and see if J. Charles gets the ball more often later this year.

    He said in his original post that his league STARTS 2 QB's and 2 kickers.

    Bad idea to accept/take that trade. If there is another Fantasy player under preforming more than Ray Rice this year I'd be surprised.
