    Mendenhall trade

    I've been offered Hakeem Nicks and Jamaal Charles for Rashard Mendenhall and Percy Harvin. I have been using Mendenhall as a flex because I have Turner and Foster at RB.

    My receivers are Greg Jennings, Mike Williams (TB), Brandon Marshall, Hines Ward, Malcolm Floyd and Percy Harvin.

    I think the trade is even in terms of production. I wish the guy would Marshall instead though. I am concerned with giving up Mendenhall and hoping Jamaal Charles can produce enough points to make an impact while splitting carries because the waiver wire is pretty slim at RB now in my league.

    What do you think? Hold on to mendenhall and hope marshall does something or upgrade my WR and hope charles does something

    • Jamaal Charles is garbage...next year when Thomas Jones is gone then charles will be the official starter and good...until than treat charles as nothing more than a flex play...All of charles' yardage has come off 3 plays where he broke it for 70 plus yards...take those away...200 yards and 3 tds...what do you have left...a ronnie brown running back that will get you 50 yards a game and a td every 4 weeks.

    • Nicks for Harvin is a definite upgrade.
      Mendenhall for Charles is tough. Charles has more upside and doesn't need a lot of touches to produce. Mendenhall will be slightly more consistent but I think Charles will still accumulate more points for the rest of the year because of the direction each of their offenses are going. I would probably go for it. Is this PPR?

      Any thoughts on this one:
      10 team PPR Dynasty League
      I give Brandon Lloyd and I receive Jamaal Charles?

      I have:
      QB Brady
      WR Jennings
      WR Nicks
      RB Foster
      RB Forte
      TE Witten
      WRT Lloyd, Knox, Bowe, Donald Brown

      We keep 2, don't give up draft picks for keepers, players had to be drafted after 4 round or kept from previous year. Both Lloyd and Charles are eligible.

    • I would do this trade. After this past week Charles is going to start getting more touches than Jones. It's going to happen because this guy is averaging over 6 ypc right now and its insane. The fact that Percy Harvin did so well this week was a bit of a fluke to be honest. It was against a terrible team and with no moss now, you know teams will zero in on him for the rest of the season.
