Default *** Official Fantasy Football Adds-Drops/Trades/Misc Thread : Nov ***

Didn't see a new thread yet. Been offered two trades, first is a counter when I told someone "lol" when trying to shift me a TE I'm never going to use. My team (4-4, 6/12, standard Yahoo so no PPR):

Cutler
Westbrook/Bush/Barber/White/Young/Chatman
Coles/Curry/Evans/Crayton
Gates/Brady
Bironas
Green Bay

First trade:

I get Donald Lee and Anquan Boldin, and lose Kyle Brady and LenDale White

Second trade:

I get Marc Bulger, Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marshall and give up White and Lee Evans.

First one's effectively White for Boldin as I'd drop Lee for someone instantly, probably Andre Davis. Opinions on which to go for, if either?

I don't like the second deal at all.

Have you shopped White? You might be able to get a better WR bc he's been so hot. If not, I don't mind that one, unless you start four RBs or something crazy. You're plenty deep at RB.

The deal in a vacuum is good for him, but I really think he can get more for White, and if not, maybe shop someone else like Barber or Bush for a top WR/QB.

x-post from the "old" thread:

14 team league. 4 pts for passing TDs (had this wrong before), 6 for rushing or receiving TDs. 10 yds rush/rec, 25 yds/pass per pt.

Ronnie Brown's injury leaves me with Jamal Lewis, Thomas Jones, Chris Henry, and Ryan Grant in the backfield. My QBs are Romo and Schaub.

Been offered Jeff Garcia and Marion Barber III for Romo. My first thought was that it's a no brainer, but Romo/Lewis/Jones actually outscore Garcia/Barber/Lewis by about 2 points per game in our format.

All thoughts appreciated (and thanks to kyro for responding to me earlier this morning).

Start QB, RB, WR, Flex, Flex, TE, K, Def. Keeper League(keep 3)

My roster2-6)
QB- Favre, Kitna
RB- Addai, Fred Taylor, Ronnie Brown, DeShaun Foster
WR- Roy Williams, Lee Evans, Plaxico Burres, Patrick Crayton
TE- Bo Scaife

His roster4-4 in the wildcard hunt)
QB- McNabb
RB- Clinton Portis, Steven Jackson, Brian Leonard, Jason Wright, Ladell Betts
WR- Owens, Stallworth, Santana Moss
TE- Shockey, Ben Watson


I've been offered SJax for Favre and R. Williams and I declined it. I'm gonna try and get Shockey away from him, seeing as I need a TE desperately. The trade needs to go through and be accepted by 1 am tonight.

What would you guys offer?

Ended up declining both, am trying shopping White for more but have told the guy in the first trade that I have another offer on the table and to quit screwing about with the tight ends. I'd imagine he'll come back with a straight deal.

What sort of WR do you think I could command for Barber straight up?

I recently gave away Santonio Holmes for MBIII. You might be able to pull a Boldin or Chad Johnson depending on your league.

ESPN league standard scoring. No PPR. 10 team. Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 FLEX, 1 TE, 1 D/ST, 1 K.

QB: Cutler, Rivers
RB: Peterson (MIN), Westbrook, Bush, Kevin Jones, Brandon Jacobs
WR: Holt, Fitzgerald, Greg Jennings, Dwayne Bowe, Andre Johnson
TE: Witten, Greg Olsen
K: Stover
D/ST: Redskins, Patriots (Only have the Redskins as a fill-in for Patriots this week, they will be dropped after this week is over)

QB free agents: Gerrard, Huard, Campbell, Warner, Schaub, Losman.

I'd like to trade Jones and/or Olsen for a better QB. I found teams that had two strong QBs and were weak at RB/TE and here are the QBs I believe might be attainable: Team A has Ben Roethlisberger & Matt Hasselbeck; Team B has Marc Bulger & Derek Andersen; Team C has Peyton & Eli Manning; Team D has Drew Brees & Jeff Garcia.

Out of those teams, I think my best shot is Eli Manning. Would you trade Jones/Olsen for Eli Manning? Is there a better deal I can make? Maybe I can trade Jones and Cutler or Rivers for Eli?

I get:

Steve Smith

I give:

Edgerin James
Chris Chambers

I have Addai, Marion Barber, and Lamont Jordan as my other RB's, and Chad Johnson, Reggie Wayne, Stallworth, and Ted Ginn as my WR's. I went for this trade after I saw Johnson get hurt bad, and I figured he would be out for the year, or at least a month. It doesn't sound as serious now but either way he still hasn't been performing on the field and I think Steve Smith is at least an upgrade at the #3 receiver spot.
