Potential Trades

8 posts in this topic

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.

I don't really like any of those trades. I would drop F. Jackson and work the WW for more depth

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.

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
