Is This A Trade Worth Proposing?


Recommended Posts

I'm in a 10 Team PPR League. I'm about to climb to 6-4 and 2nd or 3rd place, depending on total points. I really want to make a strong push to finish in no lower than 2nd place and getting a bye. My team is currently:


RG3, Matt Ryan

Adrian Peterson, Darren Sproles, Alfred Morris, Andre Brown, Chris Ivory

Brandon Marshall, Demaryius Thomas, Antonio Brown, Michael Floyd, Eddie Royal

Jordan Reed, Jared Cook

Adam Vinatieri

Cincinnati, Indianapolis


I'm thinking of offering a trade to a team who is desperately thin and unsuccessful in RBs. Their RBs are Trent Richardson, Deangelo Williams, and Mike James. That's it. I would offer either Darren Sproles or Alfred Morris and Antonio Brown for Calvin Johnson and Trent Richardson. Antonio Brown kills it in PPR and I may want to unload Morris as I'm Redskin heavy. Sproles usually pulls in at least 12-15 points on average, but also gas games like tonight where he goes off (Miami rings a bell). The person I'd be offering is still in it as 4-5 so they might be willing to unload Johnson as their desperate at RB and not too bad off at WR.


My questions are:


1. Should I just stay with what I have and not propose a trade, especially with Johnson dealing with a knee injury. If it isn't broke don't fix it sort of deal. My team has developed very nicely, especially after acquiring RG3 and Morris for Rivers, Wallace, and Bell (yea, I got lucky)


2. Am I offering a fair trade? Antonio Brown and Calvin Johnson have around the same point total in our league (before today's scores) Brown has 161, Johnson 169. I want Johnson as he has a very favorable week 14-16 matchups which is what I'm starting to think about. Trading Sproles or Morris for Richardson is an immediate upgrade to their team.


3. Should I be worried about RB depth with the trade? Losing Sproles or Morris leaves Brown and Ivory as my backups should there be an injury.
