Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
12 team, non-ppr, 7 keeper league
I give: Charles, Greene, Decker, Benjamin
I get: Martin, Vereen, C. Patterson
Reasons why I'm considering it....
1) Upgrade at my WR3..... Patterson over Decker or Benjamin (have Julio and K. Allen)
2) Upgrade my Flex.... Vereen over Greene (or I also have Ingram and Stewart)
Should I do it??
I learned and got better by making a few bad deals my rookie year (that I thought were good at the time). It doesn't mean you have to also. The more research you do, the better you'll get at this & the more fun it will be. If the best player in the trade is leaving your team, usually it's a bad deal for you.
No way you do this trade, that's crazy. There are 5 elite RBs, in a 12 team league having one of those five (especially the #1 or #2 rated pick in the entire draft) gives you a huge advantage over 7 of the teams. And a slight advantage over the others.
If you have Shonn Greene in your flex, that's a weakness. I'd take him out of that spot and put in Decker or Benjamin. Decker is the only real target for Jets, and he's a very good red zone guy. He's being undervalued. Benjamin has potential and there's no one else on that team to throw to besides Olsen.
If you trade Charles, you're dooming your season before it begins.
