Default Fantasy Football Trade Advice

Well, it looks like the old thread got deleted so here it is again. Shouldn't last long as the deadline in many leagues is tomorrow.

Just got offered Steven Jackson and Matt Schaub for Kyle Orton and Ahmad Bradshaw.

I am worried about Bradshaw. He has been fumbling the ball a lot and isn't going to continue getting goal line carries at the current rate. Philip Rivers is my QB so I can spare Orton.

I'd start:
Rivers
Foster
Jackson
Jamaal Charles
Calvin Johnson
Mike Wallace
Zach Miller
Sebastian Janikowski
Packers D

Thoughts?

Ok things have just changed.

Just got proposed Frank Gore, Matt Schaub, and Marques Colston for Ahmad Bradshaw, Kyle Orton, and Mike Wallace.

THIS is tough. I get a pretty big upgrade at RB with Gore as I would have two top 5 RBs with Gore and Foster but I lose a top 10 WR in Wallace. I would still have Calvin Johnson.

Please help!

That does make it more interesting. Do you have any other WR's on your bench that are worth starting? Or maybe some one available on the wire?

On my bench are Wes Welker, Michael Crabtree, Brandon Marshall, and the waiver wire includes guys like Lance Moore, Lee Evans, Danny Amendola, Nate Burleson, Anthony Armstrong, and Patrick Crayton. Steve Johnson is of course taken as well as any other big names.

FWIW, Colston is just heating up. Brees is getting his mojo back and is targeting Colston more and more. In fact, he is 11th in targets just after AJ.

I guess the question is which lineup looks better.

QB: Philip Rivers
RB: Arian Foster
RB: Frank Gore
RB: Jamaal Charles
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Marques Colston
D/ST: Packers D
K: Sebastian Janikowski

OR

QB: Philip Rivers
RB: Arian Foster
RB: Steven Jackson
RB: Jamaal Charles
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Mike Wallace
D/ST: Packers D
K: Sebastian Janikowski

Rep to all those that contribute and give their opinions.

I'm still going to recommend Gore/Colston over Jackson/Wallace.

It's close, but I will go with my gut.

If you are pretty much a lock to make the playoffs, check each players week 15/16 matchups. It can make a huge difference if you can get someone playing the Texans week 15 to help you go the Super Bowl...

Dont people usually have a trade deadline to prevent teams out of it to dump players?

Yes. Ours was today. Thanks for all the advice guys. I made the trade for Frank Gore. Happy with it since it was just announced that Bradshaw is no longer the starter.

I played a dude that had Gore this week, while I have Foster and Hillis. The opponent cursed himself asking for Foster and Hillis' ACLs to be snapped prior to last week's games. God bless Fantasy karma.

Yeah, it hurts. Granted, I would have been better keeping Bradshaw than getting Jackson. Jackson has been terrible this year.

Are you claiming that injury was foreseeable?

Yeah, no way of telling who is going to get injured. Gore would have gone for 200 yards easily had he stayed in the game.

This is why I am done with Fantasy Football.

Because unforeseen things like Gore's injury just lets all the air out of the tires.

I mean, I know you guys will roast me for coming here and saying this, but I can't resist it. Like a moth to the flame, so to speak.

So much "work" gets put into shaping your roster, and then dumb things like this happen. Hours of planning, strategizing, and then BAM! it was all for nothing.

Still, I can understand why some people can remain undeterred and actually embrace and love all of these sorts of things that drive me absolutely bonkers.

The best league I have ever been in? The one where you draft all starters AND your bench players, whom you also drafted, also get THEIR points counted every week. It beats having to make roster decisions every week. Once you got your team drafted, it's on auto-pilot unles you want to make some tweaks here and there. But at least it allows you to have more than just your starters' points count.

In years' past, I had a strong bench but could never capitalize on it. Now, this year's league makes it possible.
