Potential Trades

Recommended Posts

Mostly scoring league, 2 WRs 2 RBs and 1 TE each week (plus QB, K, Def)

I have

Ronnie Brown

Willie Parker

L McClain

F Jackson

S Moss

TJ Housmanzada

Reggie Williams

Heath Miller

Offers on the table:

1) Randy Moss for Ronnie Brown

2) K Winslow for Heath Miller and L McClain

3) Reggie Brown for W Parker or McClain

4) Braylon Edwards for Parker

I dont think anything is worth doing right now. #1 and #2 are intriguing. Free agent WRs are few and far between. Darrell Jackson is probably the best out there. I need a 3rd WR for bye weeks and TE bye week, Reggie Williams is worthless.

#1 I wouldn't do it without Tom Brady in NE.

#2 Miller has been a stiff- killing me on my team right now, but McClain is getting a lot of the goal line carries and is doing real well. I wouldn't make that trade unless you get another RB in return.

#3 Not sold on the Jags ability to score TD's. I don't think I would do that either.

#4 Most intriguing to me. Cleveland seems to be one game from going with Quinn and I gotta feeling he would be going to the big guy (Edwards) often. And with you needing WR help that might be the best bet.

Another thing I would look for and it would be a FA pickup. Bobby Engram was Seattle's leading receiver last year. He has missed the first 3 games, but is coming back this week. And with their WR corps in a world of hurt, he will put up numbers immediately. If he was available in your league I would pick him up and drop Williams and wait a week or two on the trade.

Good luck!

Is Lance Moore WR for NO still a FA....if so pick him up as he goes against the Vikes D this week........

All the trade options you listed are great for whoever is getting your guys but not good for you..

option1: you lose your starting RB for this week

option 2: looks good but you need McClain this week and I heard Winslow was injured...not sure if that is true or not

option 3: Reggie Brown caught his first pass of the year last week and Jackson is a better reciever on the team

option 4: not a bad deal if you think Edwards is going to catch the ball this year........

who is F Jackson RB???? sure there are better options then him....Mewelde Moore will be a starter this week

Only option I would consider is #4. And I am not real high on that one. Sure hate to get rid of top RB's. But that is the only one that has equal value on both sides, the other ones seem like lopsided trade that aren't to your advantage.

F Jackson plays behind M Lynch in Buffalo. W/ Parker hurt and Brown on bye, I needed 2nd back last week. He gets a lot of passes and attempts and was playing the Rams. I lucked into a TD from him!!!!

I picked up Kevin Walter from Houston. Easy schedule and playing besides Andre Johnson should get a lot of single coverage. Not great, but an improvement over Williams.

Both FA receivers mentioned were already on teams.

huh......well at least Brown can go this week and parker should be good to go on week 7...Did you look at the Cardinals reciever that put up 100+ yds last week....(Breston?)

Holding tight for now. Another HUGE week, lead the league in scoring by almost 10% over the next highest.

Brown and Bear defense have been HUGE surprises.

I keep waiting for someone to drop an average WR or someone to emerge. TJ Hous and S Moss are both off in week 10. Can be patient until then.

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
