General Message Board
I am in desperate need of a TE, as I am starting Jared Cook. I am about to propose a trade for him, and I need advice as to who to trade.
This is an 8-team, PPR league
WR: Garcon, Green, Fitzgerald, Thompkins, T. Austin, Bowe, Hopkins
RB: Charles, Morris, L. Bell, L. Miller, Ellington, McGahee, R. Jennings(I will drop him soon)
I will not show my QBs, as he has Peyton Manning. What should I give for Jordan Cameron?
I am leaning towards trading Fitzgerald and a running back, but I am not sure at all.
You may be under rating McGrath. The last 3 games he has 13 catches, which is more than any of the other waiver guys you mentioned. Other than Charles, he is leading the team in catches during that period and in contrast Bowe only has 9 catches. Smith seems to be checking down a lot to Charles and McGrath.
No, he is not Cameron, Gronk, Graham Gonzalez Thomas, witten or Davis, but right now he is playing as a Top 10, better than Cook and is worth at least a roster spot until you can make another move, if you can at all.
OK, then pass on Cameron. Waive Jennings and pick up Garrett Graham in Houston (Daniels is out at least 6 weeks) or McGrath ( all of their TEs are hurt too) in KC as a 2nd TE and see if they do better than Cook.
If the other guy is smart, he will not accept an RB less than Charles or MAYBE a Morris or Bell and Garcon. Fitz's bad numbers are out there to see. So why would he take that for a #2 or #3 TE in the game? Green is also a name who has done nothing since game 1 in Cincy.
Fitz is a good idea, Palmer is a disappointment out there which has been hurting Fitz, but he still has the big name and top skill. I think Bell or Miller might be good RB add-ons ( I would personally go for giving up Miller, but I do not think you would be giving up too much with either of them though).
