Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'm in an 8 team league.
I've got Brees for a starting QB and Flacco on the bench.
I have been offered Sproles and Brandon Jacobs for Flacco.
I am currently carrying 3 RBs (start 2 + flex)
LT, Ronnie Brown, and Ray Rice
so I am a bit thin on numbers, but fairly solid (I think) on quality.
The top QBs still not owned are Orton and Garrard so there is some depth available at the position if I still want to carry one on the bench (tho with how Brees and the O-line is playing I don't see it as immediately necessary)
So I ask...would you do it???
i say dont do it... sprolles isnt getting ANY looks whatsoever, and his only value is a handcuff to LT (which makes him SOMEWHAT valuable) and Jacobs is running like he has a house on his back... he isnt scoring, and he isnt catching balls... a better trade would be slaton or hightower... they catch passes and get points. unless you get return yards, i wouldnt even do it... actually, NOT EVEN if you get return yard points,flacco is too good for that trade. he needs to up the ante, make him a counter offer.

ok, i didnt see that u start all 3 of those backs weekly... yea u need the depth, i retract the above statement... sprolles for a handcuff is a nice addition when u also get a 4th for rotation in jacobs, i thought u had 3 and started 2 lol.. go get those backs lol
why is that even a question. I would do it for just jacobs. How does flacco at all help your team on the bench. I would want jacobs simply because lt is old and always injured and if he gets hurt or just sucks you would have brandon. Brandon has had an awful season but he's very talented, on a good team, and could turn it around. And than you get Sproles! He's important because if lt goes down he's the guy to take his place. And when he started in lt's spot when lt was hurt he was pretty good.

the other guy told you to sit on your team for now because he thinks it's good. But i don't think he's figuring in a. that's it's an 8 team league and not a 12 team league like most yahoo league's so the talent level will be higher and b. lt is a question mark. Don't listen to him. You're getting a good deal. You don't need flacco, it's an 8 team league so i'm guessing most teams don't need a qb, and you'll be hard pressed to get better value for him because it's an 8 team league so there isn't a need for qb. And with your rb position a question mark with lt do it. Just pick up orton. He has been good this year.
