Trade #2


Recommended Posts

I am considering a trade that on the surface does not look great for me.

 

Background is that I gave up Beanie (RB4) and Palmer (QB2) for Greg Jennings & Titans yesterday. So for now I'm flying with no backup QB and less depth at RB. I think my starters are now top-notch and am looking to solidify my bench, particularly at RB and QB.

 

I can get Chester Taylor/JCharles/Burleson by giving up Antonio Gates/ Steve Smith (NYG)/ Chris Henry

 

I want Taylor to solidify my backups and give me ADP insurance.

Losing Gates hurts a little, but I still have Jennings and Bowe as every week starters and can mix in Mason/Carlson as WR3.

Henry for Burleson is somewhat of a wash as both are third options for teams w/ good QBs when healthy.

I was planning to drop Smith for Winslow regardless.

Charles is a trade piece that could help me get Orton from the LJ owner.

Then with my RB situation stabilized I can focus on getting a backup QB (Hill, Sanchez available)

 

Thoughts appreciated.

I really like Smith and Henry this season, I think they will have pretty good seasons and your undervaluing them in the trade...your right it isn't balanced in your favor...and Gates for Taylor...well to be honest I think I would rather get a guy who will get a few more touches than Taylor for Gates who is a moster at TE...although you do have Carlson so you should be fine there.

 

Its up to you...I wouldn't do it.

 

Personally I like your team as it is for now...and I'd just wait and see how them guys pan out.

 

If your gonna make a trade though I really like Donald Brown and I think he will be a good player for you...I'd trade Moreno while his stock is up for say McGahee and Garrard...or something like that.

I appreciate the input. LJ looked good tonight and Charles didn't so he won't be great trade bait. Henry has a TD 4 wks in a row. I'm starting to think I stand pat or look for something better.

 

Smith is unfortunately just one of many potential targets for NY. The preseason has had a ton of different guys catching (Sinorice Moss, Nicks, Hixon, Manningham) All of them and Boss are better redzone targets...

Yea but Smith will be Manning's security blanket...I'm not sayin he will be a number 1 stud but 60+ catches and 700-800 yds with 4 tds isn't outta the question.

 

I mean if he put up those numbers I'd keep him around in case of injury or for a bye...Plus I think its worth taking a risk that he becomes Manning's favorite target...its not like he is costing you anything to keep for a few weeks.
