View Full Version : Fantasy Football Trade?

10-10-2008, 03:54 AM
OK Im in a 12 team standard scoring league:

My record is currently that of the Chiefs....last week I lost due to Hixon being tackled on the 1yrd line and my opposition having Jacobs run the ball in for the score....lost by 10!

So here is my team:
Jake Delhomme
Ryan Grant
Deuce McCallister
Braylon Edwards
Devery Henderson
Calvin Johnson
Tony Scheffler
John Casey

JT O'Sullivan
Chris Johnson
Brian Westbrook
Tony Gonzalez

I offered Braylon Edwards, Deuce McCallister and Tony Scheffler for Santana Moss this was rejected then the offer I received was

Santana Moss + Michael Pittman
Braylon Edwards + Chris Johnson + Tony Scheffler

Could really do with some advise, at the moment Im thinking of doing it as I will normally start Westbrook and Grant (hoping he will improve)

Thanks for any help!

Hi leon, it's two days since you posted the thread, wandering whether or not you made the trade?

I would probably reject the trade in hope Edwards starts catching a few balls & Johnson continues to make big plays.

Johnson has obviously done well so far & should continue to do well as Titans are commited to the run (White takes a few TD's away from Johnson but he has still put up considerably nice numbers) & with Westbrook being banged up a bit at the moment & Grant isn't at the same level as last season at this stage in the season, the third option in Johnson might prove very valuable.

Whatever move you made i hope it turns in your favour, i have both Edwards & Johnson so how they fair will certainly play a factor in determining my fortunes in fantasy this season.

I decided to turn down the trade as I felt that Pittman wouldnt bring enough fantasy value in place of Johnson.

I am going to try and trade up for a good QB with some of my players but I doubt I will achieve anything with this team, we drafted way too early.....just before the pre-season, with Grant banged up for most of it I wouldnt have touched him at all!

Good luck with yours
