Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
NEED SOME TRADE ADVICE. I WAS OFFERED THIS TRADE:
I'm hoping you agree that this is a no-brainer ACCEPT, after you see how heavily weighted QBs are in this league. Here is how scores are calculated:
Passing TDs - 6 points each
Passing Yards - 50 yards per point
However, here is the catch in our league:
3 bonus points at 250 yards
5 bonus points at 300 yards
10 bonus points at 350 yards
These points are ADDED ON at each new level, for example if you throw 250 yards and get 3 extra fantasy points, then you reach 300 yards, you get an additional 5 fantasy points, so 5+3 = 8 extra fantasy points.
Here is how scoring is for running backs:
Rushing Yards: 20 yards per point
Rushing TD's: 6 points each
Also, I'm worried about Favre and his ankle this year..I feel as if Peyton is a HUGE upgrade to Favre, and ESPECIALLY in this QB-weighted league. Also, Stewart isn't /too/ big of a downgrade from MJD.
Thanks a lot for reading all this. Link me to your post and I'll help you for helping me!
I never understand trades like these. If you wanted Manning so bad why didn't you take him first over MJD? Or, if the other guy went before you, why didn't he take MJD first? It's just stupid!!! Both Stewart and Favre are 3rd round or worse picks.
Are there any performance bonuses for RB's as well? This would be a tough trade, but it could work out for you especially since Peyton Manning puts up bigger numbers per game. He had 9 300 yd games and 2 of those over 350 yds, while Favre only had 6 300 yd games with one over 350. Jonathon Stewart does split carries though, but still has had 10 TD's in both of the last 2 seasons. MJD looks a little more consistent throughout the year, but doesn't put up a lot of big numbers either as both RB's rushed over 100 yds the same number of games last year. But Jonathon Stewart actually had a few more breakout games, but also quite a few sub-par games.
personalli i wouldnt. brett favre has had some injury ot another the past 5 years, and nothing has stopped him. he put up career numbers last year and is looking to do the same this year.
mjd is a huggeee upgrade from stewart too. i dont know anyone who would even consider mjd and stewart anywhere close, so to say its not too much of a downgrade is insane.
taking manning would be playing it safe, but i think it would hurt your team. manning and favre were pretty much the same fantasy points wise last year, so i dont think hes a huge upgrade,
ultimately its your call. but i think youre giving up two great players for a safe bet when you could get more.
