Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I drafted both recievers with the intent on using one as trade bait to upgrade my RB slot. Here is my current RB/WR roster:
WR: Fitzgerald, Boldin, S. Holmes, K. Walter, E. Bennett, Heyward-Bey, C. Henry
RB: T. Jones, M. Lynch, F. Jones, E. James
I know I need help at RB, and that is why I am looking to dump either Boldin or Fitzy. I keep getting mixed messages from people here, although I truly appreciate the help. If I trade Boldin, who should I pursue as a RB? Will I need to package Boldin with someone or is he enough to get an upper tier RB?
(Dean O...I know where you stand on this since you have answered me numerous times...just looking for other opinions!)
holding fitz when you need RB is just stupid, his stock cannot go up....it can only go down...you get your best offers for him before the season begins...plain and simple, you trade players when thier stock is highest
Trade Fitz plain and simply. If you look at both him and Boldins numbers over the last two years, they are nearly identicle - other than Boldin has THREE more TDs.
Couple that with the fact that Fitz score 6 of his 10 TDs last year when Boldin was hurt, and the fact that you will get more trade value for Fitz.
The simple truth is, both WRs will put up similar stats yet you will be able to get more for Fitz in a trade. Move him
Why you drafted Fitz to trade him I don't know? You wouldn't be in this situation if you would have just drafted a RB first off....Obviously you want to trade Fitz because Boldin is just as good but won't get you the same value....Good luck.

Well I didn't draft Fitzy with the intention of trading him. Originally I selected Boldin in the third round with the understanding that I would deal him for a RB. But as I get advice, everyone keeps telling me Fitzy would be better trade bait for an upper RB.
Is Fitzy a straight up trade for a top tier RB or does he require more?
ok in my opinion i dont think you can get a top tier rb for boldin but you definatelycan for fitzgerald. so if i were you id just trade fitzgerald. i mean its very possible that boldin will outscore fitzgerald anyway so its kind of a win-win. keep in mind boldin led all recievers in ppg last yr. im definately making sure to get boldin in every league im in.
