Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
OK I need to pull the trigger soon, my team is
QB- Vick, Newton
RB- Gore, Mendenhall, Blount, Lynch, Ingram
WR- Austin, Marshall, Bryant, Smith (car), AJ Green
I'm trading Vick, Mendenhall, and Austin
Peterson, Fitzgerald, and Big ben
... Do u do it??? HELPPP!!
I wouldn't. I think you're being blinded by the fact that you'll get AP! Peterson will not have a great season b/c his offense can't get going! No pass game = weak run game! Always! AP's yet to have an excellent game, and I dont think he'll have many this year. No one is afraid of MIN's pass, so they'll focus on stopping the run. Fitzgerald would be the only upgrade for you in the case of Austin not coming thru as predicted, but you'd be giving an opponent a powerful weapon in Vick. Even if Mendenhall and Austin dont come back , you're still givin more than you're getting back.
Vick vs Ben.....Vick
Fitz vs. Austing...tie
Mend vs AP.....AP, but only slightly
I think if you're trying to upgrade you're RB stock, look elsewhere!
Just based on team needs, hell to the yes.
You have the best qb in fantasy football (cam) so you don't need vick.
AP is a nice upgrade over mendy and fitz is a slight upgrade to austin.
big ben can just fill in on newton's bye week.
