    Jamaal Charles: Trade or Keep

    Charles is coming off of a ridiculous game, but I also understand he won't play at that level throughout the entire season. So that brings me to my point, should I trade him at his highest fantasy worth or keep him and hope he is consistent (not even flashy) throughout the year. Please weigh in!

    Also, what are some fair trade options you've seen for Charles? Like everyone else, I just don't want to feel that remorse if he goes buck for a majority of the season.

    • There's probably enough concern about JC's ACL that his trade value will not be what you would hope for. You won't get a McFadden or McCoy or J. Jones for him. I'd keep him.

    • You'd probably get around avg trade value (his initial third round quality value) for him right now since he's finally proven last week he's not exactly a bust like CJ. But if I were you, I'd give it one more week to see what he does. If has a decent 100 yard 1 TD type game, I can def see his value move to 1 round status, but if he has another dud, it's probably going to hurt you quite a bit. Basically it's up to your threshold for taking risks. And keeping him depends entirely on your RB situation. If I had him, I'd give it some more time before I made a decision to trade him.

      • Yeah, I agree.

        I have Doug Martin and Bradshaw, but my WR3 and Flex are killing me. Especially because I picked up Kevin Smith in the draft. It's slim pickings on the waivers. I just picked up Powell and Bell off free agency so that gives you an idea what's available haha.

        It's a 14 team, PPR league

        Here's my team:
        QB: Brees
        RB: Charles, Martin, Bradshaw, J. Bell, Powell, and Battle
        WR: Roddy, Torrey Smith, Little, G. Tate, Barden, and Gibson
        TE: Gresham
        DS/T: Baltimore

        QB, 3 WR's, 2 RB's, 1 TE, 2 FLEX
