Sure hate to give up AP, but you need the upgrade at wr and rb. I would like to see you get a better wr than Jeffrey, although he is seviceable. Bell is not AP but can be serviceable. Sproles has underperfromed until last week and I really am not trusting him this year, but he is an upgrade to all or your rb's but AP.

Can you get someone to give you a wr1 plus a rb1/2 for AP and upgrade the players in your package. If not, I really don't like the trade, but not sure with the rest of your roster and no ww pickups available, that you have a choice.

None of the rb's on your roster other than AP are serviceable. Mcfadden is hurt and the coach annonced today that Jennings would still get his carries when if he returns. Mendy is a plodder and McGahee and Jacobs are even worse. Looks like you don't have a choice but to try to complete a trade and get the best players that you can for AP.

thanks ya its difficult kind of have to. i got away with williams as a flex and won. i pretty much need to win out maybe can afford 1 loss if im lucky. everyone ahead of me has beaten me so they win the head to head if tied. he was orig offer me mjd/ty hilton/sproles. but wanted no part in mjd and hilton plays tomorrow so trade will not go through. no one else will trade really. could try for gio bern and welker then use steve smith as a flex or rice and an johnson but prefer the first trade

I would rather have Hilton for ROS than Jeffrey, if that could work out for you. Looks like your choices are really slim. Good luck.

Hey matt, thanks for the input on my QB predicament thread, so as you requested, here are my thoughts

I would not do this trade as AP is way to valuable. If the trade was for say, TY Hilton and Bernard/McCoy/Lacy etc., then I would CONSIDER it. What is your team record? If you need to swing for the fences, thats one thing, but try to counter for the partners best RB/WR and so on.



I hope that helps.

Thanks for your input on my flex thread brotha. I wouldn't do the trade for a few reason. The main one being AP is just AP. He is the offense. Bell isnt bad, but Pittsburgh is struggling and he really isn't used in the passing game. Sproles is nice but really hasn't been totally himself this year, especially since you're not in a PPR league, he is trying to sell him high after his big performance last week. As for Alshon, I love him, I have him too, but still not enough to give up one of the few legit "stud" backs left. AP got you to a point this season where you can make a playoff push, I think you stick with him.

Unless you can get a true WR1 and a borderline RB1/high end RB2 I wouldn't do it

Hey guys did you see that he has 0 ww moves left. This is the only way he can improve his team and he needs some quality players at both rb and wr. I don't like giving up AP either, but can't see how sticking with him and not being able to make any ww moves helps him win. He can continue to run AP out and lose with the rest of his team each week or make the best deal that add 3 starters for AP which gives him a chance to win. Just my opinion.
