    Ridleys value after first 2 games?

    So someone is trying to move Ridley desperately. i was eyeing Demarius Thomas who he also has. 0.5 PPR league. My team is

    QB:Ryan
    RB: Charles, Forte,Lacy,Bradshaw
    WR: Roddy, Antonio Brown, Thompkins, Vincent Brown, Hopkins, Harvin
    TE: Finley

    His team
    QB:RG3, Palmer
    HB:Foster, Ridley, Woodhead, F.Jax
    WR:DT,V.Jax, Colston,James Jones, Austin, Malcolm Floyd
    TE:Gates

    What's a fair trade?

    • The problem is this owner is trying to sell on a player low and probably at his predraft price. Im from Boston so Im a big Ridley supporter and haven't given up on him and his potential in that offense, which is also struggling right now so buying low is a good idea if price is right. Your WR core could definitely use an upgrade but the other team is gonna want a RB in return and to acquire DT at this point with his value peaked right now is gonna cost you Forte or Charles. You do have Lacy who could fill in nicely until Ridley rights the ship if you move one of those two. I would try Forte and Vincent Brown for Ridley and Thomas. If he declines you could up it to Forte and Antonio Brown but I wouldnt go any more than that Charles and Forte are ppr beast and gonna have huge years enough to maybe overcome your shortcomings at WR. You can hope Lacy has a breakout game in the next week or two and then sell high on him for a WR2 from someone needing a RB. Good Luck

    • Thompkins and Lacy for Ridley and James Jones.

      Both of his guys are buy-low, but WILL bounce back. Seems fair to me, especially PPR when Rodgers throws 30-40 times a game.

    • Ridley, DT for Charles, Brown

      It favors you but it's worth throwing out there.

    • I forgot I also have Joique Bell

      • I get what you're trying to accomplish with Roddy hurt and Finley possibly out as well, but I think there's little to no chance you gain Demaryius Thomas, Colston, or even James Jones. Vincent Jackson even had a solid week 1... and his unreliable stat line is legendary.

        You can try a number of combinations... but I suspect in the end this will boil down to a straight across deal of Bell for Ridley, which isn't such a bad trade when you think about it. Ridley will turn it around, AND he's the starter. Bell, on the other hand, will always be limited somewhat by playing behind Bush.
