Default Offerred a trade and need advice

Got offered both of these trades today by the same guy:

Get:
Breaston, Steve WR ARI
Lynch, Marshawn RB BUF
Williams, Ricky RB MIA

Give up:
Michael Turner

-----------------

Get:
Hines Ward
Ricky Williams

Give up:
Michael Turner

------------------

I am not sure what to think about these, Turner has been okay, he has a pretty favorable schedule coming up and he is my best back so I am tempted to just keep him, I really could use a WR like Ward though. Here's the rest of my team:

QB
A Rodgers
J Flacco

RB
J Lewis
M Turner
C Portis
J Charles

WR
D Jackson
L Evans
S Moss
P Harvin

TE
J Carlson
H Miller

K - L Tynes

D/ST - Jets

As you can see, not a very strong team, it's OK but that's about it based on how these guys have produced. I am just not particularly strong at RB or WR. Don't even remember how I got here, goo thing my other team is 6-2.

Hines Ward as been producing well but all of his others are just bye week replacements, I basically would be giving up my best RB for a good WR, both are producing decently but I am just too thin at RB, Ricky Williams/Lynch is just more of the same I already have like Portis. Not liking it too much at this point. Thoughts?

Well I drafted Portis in one of my leagues and he has stunk it up so far this season to say the least and J Lewis has recently said he was going to retire after the season and the browns are clearly not in the playoff hunt which tells me Lewis is playing for money at this point. Charles has potential but hasnt proved anything at this point. Its hard to say but I really think with the first trade you giving one superstar for three starters. I also have Turner in my league and your right he should play better in the second half of the season than he did in the first half.

Whats your record in this league if your towards the bottom of the standings you might should try one of the trades just to shake things up abit.

I am 4-3 about to fall to 4-4 unless Turner can score 37 points or more tonight. Which would be 3rd in my division. Not quite out of it yet but I need to go on a run to make the playoffs.

Damn that makes it alot tougher. I wont have time intil I get home but you could look at your other RB's and WR's remaining schedules as well as the players you would recieve. That might help you make a decision. But being at 4-4 and Turner probably having a better second half you might should just keep him.

I would do the Ricky WIlliams Hines Ward trade. Your WR core is very shaky and Hines could help you out there. Ricky Williams is one of the top backs in the league this year even as a back up. He is still producing and that team is built on running and they are great at it. Plus, if Brown gets hurt then Ricky will really be a beast. I think this deal is worth doing.

Default Re: Offerred a trade and need advice

I'd think about doing this trade. Boldin has been playing injured and might increase Breaston's targets. Lynch might get better as the season progresses and Ricky should remain productive as long as he and Brown are running the wildcat crap. My .02

Quote:
Get:
Breaston, Steve WR ARI
Lynch, Marshawn RB BUF
Williams, Ricky RB MIA

Give up:
Michael Turner

Default Re: Offerred a trade and need advice

A lot of it depends on how your league is structured. How many WR's do you start? Do they get points per reception? Do they get points for return yards or TD's?

If you do get points off returns then you have 2 studs at WR and I would recommend hanging on to Turner. If not, then you could use a guy like Ward, especially if it's a ppr league. Breaston has been pretty decent as well but I would take Ward over him if it was my choice to make.

Lynch is garbage and I wouldn't trade anything away for him. Williams has been pretty good and Miami has a good looking schedule coming up. On the other hand, Turner pretty much guarantees you a TD every week.

Personally I would stick with Turner unless you are absolutely desperate to get a WR.

It's not a PPR league, not return yards count. Have to start 2 RB's and 2 WR's, and one Flex position of either RB/WR.

The bolded was my first thought.

Default Re: Offerred a trade and need advice

After looking at it more I think I would do either trade. Look at it this way. How many WR's start in your league.

QB
A Rodgers
J Flacco

RB
J Lewis
Ricky Williams - starter
M Lynch - starter
C Portis
J Charles - drop since LJ is only getting suspended and not cut

WR
D Jackson - starter
L Evans
S Moss
P Harvin - starter
S Breaston - starter

TE
J Carlson
H Miller

K - L Tynes

D/ST - Jets
