Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
If you are banking on winning the trade on Vick getting injured and throwing more INTs, why draft him in the first place? You cannot predict either. Vick has the definite upside of any player in the trade. It's 3 starters for 3 starters, looks like people just trying to shake things up rather than anything else.
Decent trade. You upgraded at RB and got a solid WR, although I think McFadden and Austin are overrated right now.
Yes McFadden has a huge upside but he also plays on a HORRIBLE team and is injury prone. Austin will get you 1000/6 but not much more, 2009 was a fluke as he came back to earth last season.
Basically it comes down to whether you want to take a chance on Vick that he will be healthy the whole season or stick with the safe, steady and productive Schaub.

So much of football is dictated by injuries. If McFadden gets hurt, I lose...if Vick gets hurt, I win.
I don't think Austin is overrated...he has Romo back this season, so I think his numbers will be better than last year.
A lot of it is personal perference...I like Austin and Schaub, but think Vick and Blount are a bit overrated.
Thanks for the input.
Vick might get injured and he's definitely going to throw a lot more interceptions this year. Plus PHI is trying to make more use of the run game, so don't expect many long TD passes to give him ridiculous fantasy points.

Vick is definitely going to throw more interceptions this year? Based on what, that he has 1 more year of experience in this offense, with two dynamic recievers and a multitalented running back?
Also, PHI will never make more use of its running game as long as Reid is the coach. He HATES to run the ball. Running for him is a necessary evil just to keep the defense honest.
Basically everything you just said is complete non-sense.
Honestly I would've never done this trade. Sure you got starters in McFadden and Austin, but I am just not a Schaub fan. You might sleep a little easier knowing you don't have to worry about the Eagles shaky O-line but you have definitely taken the swag out of your team. Who knows, maybe you will look back at this at the end of the season and call yourself a genious. This is a big move than can make/break your season

I see your point, but I’m the opposite of you…I like Schaub, and I don’t see Vick duplicating his performance from last year. I think Vick is going to be marginally better than Schaub, and a bigger injury risk. But I got a good young RB and WR…and was able to get rid of Benson, who I think is slowing down.
I forgot to mention, but it’s a dynasty league. Does that make the deal better or worse?
Thanks for your input.
I like your trade. Traded an injury risk at QB for an injury risk at RB, though. 1 less super-dynamic player in Vick for a better overall group of 3 players.

I agree that McFadden is an injury risk, but I think the odds of Vick missing time are higher than McFadden. I also think the likelyhood of McFadden repeating last year's #'s are higher than Vick.
Thanks for the help.
