Should I offer this?
Fri Sep 18, 2009 6:47 pm
  • I give up:

    QB Hasselbeck
    RB White
    TE Watson

    I get:

    QB Brees
    TE Olsen

    currently excluding the aforementioned players, our teams look like this:

    My RBs : Grant, Jackson, Sproles, Addai
    My TE: Gonzalez
    His RBs: LT, Pierre Thomas, Larry Johnson
    His TE: Miller, Keller

    I'm thinking with the addition of a 3rd "reliable" TE he can then trade for a better RB. What do you think? Is this a good trade? Would you take it if I offered it to you?

  • Depends on how much TDs are worth in your league. If they're worth 6, then this is a must grab. Watson is unlikely to have another 2 TD game this year (he averages something like 20 yards a game receiving) and White is a vulture. Meanwhile you pick up the most valuable fantasy QB out there.

  • As much I hate to say it, I would make that deal.

  • Blitzer, can you elaborate? who do you think ends up winning in the trade? or is it just about even?

  • I just think getting Brees would put you over the top because you know he will put up great fantasy points every week. Also, Jay Cutler will learn to love Greg Olsen and his numbers will get better every week since he is basically their only true consistent pass catcher besides Hester, who I only see as skilled enough to be a deep threat as of now. Watson is a TE that will be good one week and off the next since NE has so many weapons on offense. Hass is solid and will put up great numbers, but Brees will just put up even better numbers.

  • Yeah, I make that trade if I'm in your shoes. And you would win the trade.

  • Offer, but I don't think he takes it...

  • I agree with JerHawk..I dont know why he would take it.. is he absolutely desperate for RBs? He has access to the same information the rest of us do..he knows that Brees is a better FANTASY bet than Hass, he probably knows Olsen is a better overall choice than Watson... so he weakens himself at 2 positions to get a vulture RB he would probably only use in a bye week..
