TRADE ADVICE

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of offering this trade with one of the last place teams that is not in my division. I want to offer Antonio Gates for Reggie Wayne straight up. I would only do this trade if I was able to pick up Alge Crumpler off of free agency list. I already have Walker, Toomer, Horn, and Troy Williamson at WR. I'm getting production from Walker all year. I'm not too sure on Horn since I just picked him up. What do you guys think. Receivers and Tight Ends scored the same in my league 6 pts for tds and 1 pt for every 10 yards receiving.

I would keep Gates. Crumpler is good, but he won't have the week like he just had often. gates is a primary for rivers who is beginning to throw much more. You are giving up a #1 at his position for a #2. Keep Gates.

 

Horn looks a bit rejuvenated this year. He's now got a decent QB that can throw and with the emergence of Colston, all the pressure and double-teams are no longer on him.

How many of each do you start? If it's one TE and two WR's, you're talking about going from Gates-Walker-Horn to Wayne-Walker-Crumpler, rigrgeht? I think Horn to Crumpler IS an upgrade,

but Gates IS the #1 guy on the Chargers and starting to show it. I'd probably stand pat.

 

If you get to pick up Crumpler, can you start Gates-Walker-Crumpler (2 TE's?). Or else pick him up

and try to trade Crumpler for a stud receiver. If you look around, you'll find guys who are starting

a nobody at TE but have WR depth and SHOULD be able to swing a deal.

A lot would depend on how many WR you have to start....but right now you dont have a bonafied #1 WR... as good as Gates is...I would be inclined to go and get Wayne...especially if you have to start more than 2 WRs...

I would do the trade since you can pick up Crumpler. The only thing that would concern me is if the Colts wrap up home field early and rest their starters which could hurt you come playoff time.

Turfpimp is right -- Colts are the most likely team to wrap things up early and rest their starters. The Chargers will probably be playing meaningful games up until the end. I'd still pick up Crumpler as insurance/trade bait though.

I picked up Crumpler as a little insurance and played a little defense so nobody else could wrap him up. I will try to use him as the trade bait now. Thanks for the advice. I hear what you guys are saying about the Colts.
