    Fantasy Trade Advice

    I've been looking for a decent TE since the season started. I started off with Todd Heap and Greg Olsen. Heap got me -2 points in Week 1 and Olsen got me -4 points in Week 2.

    I've already dropped Olsen and picked up Dante Rosario from free agency. I've waited on dropping Heap because he's only played one game so far and I figure his Week 1 performance could be a fluke.

    Now, another guy in my league is offering me Tony Gonzalez if I give him Jon Kitna. My other QBs are McNabb and Garrard. Garrard hasn't done much in the first two weeks, so I had been thinking of dropping him. I just need a decent backup QB for Philly's bye week and in case McNabb gets hurt.

    Is it worth it to give up Kitna for Gonzalez?

    EDIT -- I should also mention that I'm first in my league, and the guy offering me the trade just happens to be playing against me this weekend. He also already has three other QBs: Cassel, Bulger, and Delhomme.

    Personally, I wouldn't have given up on Olson so quick. He will be a big part of that offense if they are to get going...

    Yes, McNabb is money and Garrard is a more than serviceable back-up. DO IT!!

    Re: Fantasy Trade Advice

    mcnabb and kitna should be relatively interchangeable. mcnabb is putting up good numbers without his top receiver, and the lions are horrible aside from roy williams/calvin johnson so kitnsa should get good numbers also. i don't like gonzo because he has no one to throw him the ball and kc is god aweful. te is deep this year, i got scheffler in the 14th round and he is currently #1. also, the difference at the end of the year from the #4 TE to the #10 TE will probably only amount to about 3-4 pts/game while if mcnabb gets hurt (very likely) and you don't have a decent backup, you would be losing way more then that a week. what i'm trying to say is kitna will score on avg. 5-6 more pts a week then gerrard and gonzo will only score on avg. 3-4 more pts a week then heap.

    Re: Fantasy Trade Advice

    Fantasy football isn't won on the TE position and I don't think Gonzo is going to be a fantasy stud at that position this year with that terrible Chiefs team but for Kitna it's probably worth the risk.

    Wow, I have McNabb with Kitna as my backup. I don't really think you can go wrong either way honestly...

    Re: Fantasy Trade Advice

    Kitna wont be all that special this year, and this is coming from a Lions fan. He threw way too many INT's to make him that great, so if you can get a top 3 TE for a backup QB, do it! Plus they are running a different offense this year, and might not get the passing chances he got last year.

    What's available for free agent TE in your league?

    See this is exactly what I was thinking. At first reaction you'd think Gonzalez would be worth it. But being a Chiefs fans, I know how awful their offense is. (Of course it's been awful for a few years now and Gonzo has still managed to do OK in fantasy.) I'm also worried about McNabb getting hurt and the fact that Garrard has been unimpressive so far this year. I may need Kitna down the road.

    If I was in last place or even middle of the pack, I might be more likely to accept the trade. But since I'm in first, I'm thinking maybe I just shouldn't mess with things.

    I'm trying to make a similar trade in reverse in my league, as I need a tight end. I offered Kitna for Kellen Winslow and upgrades to my backup RB and WR spots.

    Re: Fantasy Trade Advice

    I'd say keep Kitna...I'm not all that sure that TG will help you all that much with the Chiefs offense right now


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: Fantasy Trade Advice

    I think you do it. Kitna isn't really all that great. It sounds like you get negative points and he throws a bunch of picks.

    I'd trade a middle of the road at best QB for a decent TE, especially since McNabb is McMONEY so far, and Garrard will play better when the Jags Oline gets healthy and the running game gets going...

    Do it!

    These are my top two so I think you are in great shape. Like has been said though, I don't think you should give up on Heap and should try to reacquire Olsen. TE is a fickle position for fantasy purposes imo.

    I agree.......he is a free agent in our league, and I will probably try to pick him up, as he is better than his stats so far for sure.

    Re: Fantasy Trade Advice

    It depends on how your league scoring is set up. If your QB gets a point for every passing attempt then Kitna is a pretty good QB to have because of their lack of Defense and running game, they have to throw the ball a lot to stay in games.
