CCH

Recommended Posts

8 Team League

I TRADE:

Dwayne Bowe

Trent Richardson

Sidney Rice

Jacquizz Rodgers

I RECEIVE:

Reggie Wayne

Ahmad Bradshaw

Darren McFadden

Eric Decker

My gut tells me to take it...but McFadden hasn't been great so far while Bowe and Richardson are...thoughts?

I'd absolutely take this trade.. What are you getting with Rice and Rodgers? Nothing... DMC will bounce back after their bye week, Decker seems to have emerged himself as a solid WR, Wayne is a monster and the TD's will come, Bradshaw might have been hurt recently, but he has more upside than Rodgers.

I wouldn't do it. Bowe gets a lot of targets and Richardson is the number 1 RB on a team with a rookie QB. Plus, Richardson has shown he can do well, as seen by his performance against the Ravens. Wayne gets receptions and yards, but isn't as favoured in our offense as Bowe is in the Chiefs' offense. Run DMC has been on and off this year and same goes for Bradshaw. Decker is solid, but it's hard to predict who gets more receptions and TDs between him and Thomas.

I'd do it. In short, you're getting rid of Bowe and Richardson (Rodgers and Rice are probably bench players), and in essence, you're getting 4 potential starter, and good ones at that. McFadden is very good, arguably better than Richardson fantasy wise this season. Decker is Manning's go to guy and has been doing well thus far. Reggie Wayne is off to the fastest start to his career and has great matchups ahead of him (Cromartie, Haden, Sean Smith, McCourty). Bradshaw is a bit inconsistent, but he could be a very good flex player.

TAKE IT!!!!!

Gotta Disagree Andy

Richardson has been far better than McFadden.

I have McFadden and Richardson. I am trying to Trade McFadden as we speak. This year he has got me a total of 34 points. I also have Wayne as a WR and he has given me 34 points. Bradshaw will have the brunt of the load but don't forget about andre brown too. Personally I regret drafting McFadden, clearly the Raiders are a joke. I just have alot of family that are raider fans and they always chirp in my ear how great of a back he is. . . .I'm not buying it!

Look at the schedules down the road. Broncos' schedules for WR matchups and Raiders' schedule for RB matchups get better after week 5. It is a risk you are willing to take but I think it is worth it based on the matchups I am seeing. Besides, the Colts are yet to play the Dolphins, Bills and Browns ALL at home, all of whom can be passed on, Wayne has some juicy matchups too. Bradshaw probably has the least number of favorable matchups in terms of run D - maybe the Browns this week (if you can get him by then), and Saints & Falcons down the stretch. But based on how McFadden ran vs the Steelers, maybe the Steelers and Ravens are not fearsome run Ds anymore, especially if you have a semblance of a passing game.

Bradshaw is the one I would say is iffy. But Decker and McFadden will get way more good matchups down the road. Wayne is next, and then Bradshaw in order.

I punched this into the KFFL trade analyzer found at: http://www.kffl.com/static/programs/football/trade_analyzer/index.php

This is what I got:

Darren McFadden is the most valuable player involved in this trade.

In smaller leagues, it is important to try to be on the receiving end of the best player involved in a trade. Team 1 receives the best player in this trade and should be able to replace any lost depth through free agency.

Overall, I think Team 2 is giving the most in this deal. The margin appears to be a significant difference. Team 2 should decline this trade.

    • Think he is saying odds are better then zero he starts which leaves us in a range from .1 to 99.9...lol
    • I read that .... then reread it.......   Are you saying that he is a guaranteed starter?   Or there is no chance that he is the starter?   Its early, I havent finished my coffee.....  It might be my denseness       Goncalves would seem to have a real chance at RG.... IMHO  
    • A couple things that took place last year and throughout the off-season that I think will pay dividends this year on the defensive side of the ball.   Brents and Jones showed, in spurts, that they have the chops to play CB in this league and with a full season under their belt plus this off-season I think they will be a very solid tandem on the outside. Add in Flowers and his growth potential and a versatile rookie in Simpson I think the CB room is just fine and ready for the next step. Will they end up with more INT's and PBU's - I certainly think so.   Another coverage area that I think has improved is a full season and off-season of learning the LB spot for Ronnie Harrison and then the drafting of Jaylon Carlies and the singing of the UDFA Craig Young. All are former Safety's that have or had made the transition to LB and bring coverage skills with them and LONG arms - all three have 33" arms or longer which means wingspan and shutting down passing lanes. If the coaching staff isn't married to playing Zaire (Contract) and Speed (Veteran) on passing downs, then 2-3 of those fella's could play in sub packages and clog up passing lanes. They did cut bait with Shaq last year so I would hope that they play the kids that can actually cover versus the highest paid fella.   The addition of Latu, though he is just one man should also help speed up the QB's eyes and lead to more errant throws that could be picked off!??!   All three of those things tied together create a perfect storm of improvement in the weakest areas of our D last year.   As for Safety - I have mixed feelings about the FS spot and there are several 'what if' scenarios:   Cross could have something click and then the mental game meets up with his physical ability - which I feel like he played decent down the stretch last year (last 2-3 games)?   Thomas could return to his rookie form.   Daniel Scott could be a pretty good option but is also technically a rookie after sitting out all last year - though mental reps and walk throughs do help from time to time.   A really off the wall thought - perhaps they move Harrison back to SS and slide Blackmon to FS if the kids (Carlies & Young) prove capable as nickel and dime coverage backers?   Denbow is not the answer....... Dabo will be on year three of using the International Roster Exception..... Maybe they try Ameer Speed at FS with his size and speed combination? Maybe his college teammate Kendall Brooks earns a spot? Maybe Abraham or Simpson take FS and run with it? Both played that spot in college. Maybe Abraham proves he can play the NB and they slide Moore back to FS like he played in college?   Lots and lots of ifs and buts.........
    • Good question    Wiki simply says he's nicknamed AD, I wonder if it had to do with Hebrew pronunciation of the word Adonai, which means Lord.. maybe, it's just that his family or friends started calling him AD  
    • Fever get their 1st win over the Sparks. Clark hit a couple of 3s from real deep. 1 sealed the game late in the 4th.
