    Grade my Trade

    I just pulled the trigger on this kind of fast and...I don't know, would like a few second opinions i guess.

    Anyway, 10 man league, point per reception, standard scoring otherwise, QB-RB-RB- RB/WR (flex)-WR-WR-TE-K-D/ST is the format.

    So my roster was McNabb, AP, Ray Rice, Portis, Bradshaw, Jamaal Charles, Steven Smith (NYG), OchoCinco, DeSean Jackson, Anquan Boldin, Sidney Rice, Donnie Avery, Jeremy Maclin, Vernon Davis, Shiancoe, Tynes, Den, Indy.

    So the trade was S. Smith, R. Rice, and A. Boldin for Maurice Jones-Drew, and fluff jay feely, jets D.

    I gave up a lot but I feel my depth on WR will make up for losing Smith and boldin. So what do you fellas think?

    Re: Grade my Trade

    In todays game, I feel I would much rather have a dominant player I can count on week in and week out than a set of above average players who will go off for double digits every 4-5 weeks but then have games where they have 6 pts.
    MJD will be worth it as long as he stays healthy.
    Steve Smith is coming back down to earth and Boldin is really beat up.
    Rice is tough to part with but I think MJD just has too much value.
    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    My rationale exactly. MJD and AP should wreck week in week out.

    I have AP and MJD on my team, you can't beat the backfield.
    Good trade in my opinion.

    While I Don't think you got the best of the trade VALUE wise, I think you made a good trade for your team due to the depth you have.... it's one of those trades that works out well for both parties.

    I hate the trade. Ray Rice is a stud, he's averaging 6.0 yards per carry, Jones Drew is 4.3. Rice also has 325 yards recieving to drews
    165. Yes drew has 8 TD's but I don't think he will continue that pace.
    I'm not sure if I'd take the trade straight up, no way would I give up the leagues leading reciever(S. Smith) and another elite reciever(boldin).

    Your trading partner is buying low selling high. You got robbed.

    If I didn't do the trade I would of lost my FF game by playing sidney rice over steve smith. Ocho, DeSeasn, S. Smith is who I definitely would have started... obviously I can only start three(I would have always had to bench rice or boldin). So I would of gotten 10 pts as opposed to the 24 rice got me.

    Just saying, correct I gave up the "league's leading receiving" that's nice...as trade bait, what has he done the last few weeks...

    (3 catches, 4 catches, 4 catches for 10,8, and 10 FF points) since Eli, who historically does bad late in the season (playoff time for FF), got that foot injury.

    Not saying I could of got screwed over in the trade, I am just banking on my really solid starting core going into the playoffs. Depth doesn't do you much good when it matters.

    However, If MJD goes down than I pretty much ruined my season.

    With the way Ray Rice is being used and coming on I don't think MJD is that huge of an upgrade....
