Fantasy Trade

16 posts in this topic

I'm 99% sure I want to pull the trigger but need a little encouragement.

I offered Chris Johnson for Steven Jackson straight up, trying to pry away Jackson for a back that I won't be able to use much (I have R. Grant and B. Westbrook starting with Edge James on the bench and a flex spot opener that has been filled with quality receivers). The counter offer was Chris Johnson AND Tony Scheffler for Jackson. I have Tony Gonzalez as my starting TE, so most weeks I would be starting Gonzo anyways, although I do think Scheffler is in for a great season.

So I think I should accept the counteroffer since I wouldn't be able to start Johnson or Scheffler most weeks and Jackson would be an every week play that's due to get rolling soon.

What does everyone else think?

Do it immediately. Jackson will get better and with Westy that is a nice 1-2 punch

Do it. I guess. This trade would be VETOED in both my leagues. Both leagues get points for receptions, and chris johnson is SOOOOO inferier to s-jack. but your not in either one so.......... S-jack will run crazy after week 4. you win this trade.

whens the last time jackson has been real good? he was a bust last year and a bust so far this year...that o-line is horrid...their offense is as bad as the vikes lol.

but if they ever do turn it on he's a stud and you got nice back up so you don't really have anything to lose but alot to gain if he actually does something this year.

Year before last, 13 Tds, 1500 yds

Last year, got hurt after week 3, team sucked, still finished with 1000 yards but only 5 scores. Luckily my league is yardage and TDs, cause the Rams still stink but I think he'll get his. Al Saunders does like to run the ball.

Scouts, Inc. has him graded as an 85, rated an "outstanding" player, which puts him the 4th best back in the league.

I mean, considering Johnson and Scheffler were going to sit most weeks, it probably makes sense for me as an injury replacement or flex back. Like if I get him before Sunday, I'd start him over Ryan Grant given Grant's injury. Plus I will have an open roster spot that I can pick up a decent waiver wire acquisition. There are always a few guys that blow up early or mid season given injuries or opportunities.

yeah there's no question that he's an outstanding player...he went off the chain the year before last...last year in fantasy i seen him getting chosen over LT alot.

only thing that sucks is the rams fall way behind and are forced to quit running the ball and go into pass mode...but jackson is a real good reciever so like you said he'll still get his either way...not like you have much to worry about when you have westbrook.

I actually wouldn't pull the trigger on this one.

I would keep Chris Johnson myself. The Rams will get behind fast and early and abandon the run, like mentioned before. Plus he is injury prone.

He's due for a few. Glad to hear a few opinios, you can see why I had to hesitate just a smidge, still I think it's a good trade for both players. Johnson isn't getting goal line carries. Jackson will get his eventually. We are scoring & yardage in this league, so even if he is getting the yards and not the scores, he's worth as much as Johnson. It comes down to the who was going to play for me. I can't put Johnson ahead of Grant and Westbrook when both are healthy.

I wouldn't put him ahead of Westbrook but I would put him at least even with Grant........Grant seems to be injury prone and Johnson has yet to play many games but he looks impressive so far.....plus if you have that Denver TE keep him and look at trades elsewhere......

i wouldn't put anyone in the league ahead of westbrook..he's a straight stud...they use him how i wish we'd use peterson.

i'd look at it this way...jackson was a top 5 pick in most leagues....johnson and sheff were late round sleepers...you get an early 1st round guy for 2 later round players.

comes down to gut feelings this early in the year..anyone of those guys could break their leg this sunday lol...hard to say who's gonna do what...i think jackson should have a nice week this weekend..if he can't put up some #'s this sunday he's a lost cause lol

It doesn't matter if Jackson was a #1 pick and the other two guys where late round picks. The fact of the matter is Jackson is on a terrible team and will not have to chance to score like years past. Its not like a real life trade where you can trade for the guy and then plug him into a new system, you are stuck with him playing for the Rams.

With that said I would pass on this one personally. Jackson has been a non factor for the last 18 games. If you put him on another team then he would be a stud again but with the rams he can't be counted on.

You can't start him over Westbrook and even Grant will give you a more consistent performance week after week. Jackson will maybe be good for one or two games this year, the trick is guessing which ones that will be.

I would stick with Westbrook and Grant and use Johnson as your replacement on bye weeks. Or go try to find a better trade else where.

Perhaps if this was a keeper league it would be worth it but not otherwise.

the fact of the matter is a guy is an early 1st rounder for a reason...even an off year is still a good year for most rb's...if he wasn't that good and not worth much he wouldn't be a 1st rounder and a top 5 rb pick.

no one can possibly know if it's a good or bad trade or what jacksons, johnsons, sheffs, or anyone in the leagues stats are gonna be 16 games from now.

if jackson happened to rip it up one of the two games played so far this year and johnson didn't do very well everyone would be saying this is the deal of the century...but i like it cause these first few games is when people normally start dropping guys when they struggle and i pick them up and win my leagues lol.

i already see a bunch of big name players on the waiver wire that haven't done very well yet.

    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
