Trade Advice
So I'm being offered Selvin Young and Chester Taylor for Matt Forte. My inclination is to decline.

Here's my current roster

QB Brian Griese,
RB Adrian Peterson
RB Thomas Jones
RB/WR Matt Forte
RB/WR Chris Johnson
WR Larry Fitzgerald
WR Roy Williams
TE Tony Scheffler
D/ST Jaguars D/ST
K Josh Brown


Bench Justin Fargas
Bench Matt Schaub
Bench DeSean Jackson
Bench Ray Rice
Bench Vincent Jackson

What do you all think?

Re: Trade Advice
Young doesn't get enough carries to be effective. Hardly gets any goal line.
Pretty much the same for Taylor.

Also, You are stacked at RB. Great job drafting rookies! No need to pickup a 2 for 1 at RB.

Re: Trade Advice
decline. you'd be trading for 75 cents on the dollar. why give away a starter for two backups (i know selvin isn't but they use so many rb's that he might as well be)

Re: Trade Advice
Decline. Forte is a starter. The other 2 share the load with 1 and sometimes 2 other runners. Besides you are pretty stacked at RB, your feast is his famine.

Re: Trade Advice
In a perfect world you'd like to have Chester Taylor to back up Adrian Peterson, but I don't like that trade, especially since you seem to indicate that your league has two flex positions. Forte and Johnson look real good so far. Selvin Young had some nice runs yesterday, but only had 8 carries I think and isn't getting the ball at the goal line (Denver is throwing and giving it to Pittman down there). I actually drafted Young this year, but feel like I got 'Shannahaned' once again (luckily I got Portis, Jacobs, and Chris Johnson too). I forgot my own rule about avoiding Denver RBs, Shannahan changes running backs like most people change underwear (odd analogy, I apologize). Suffice it to say I'd decline.

Re: Trade Advice
you need a better QB. I would use Forte to get yourself an elite QB.

Re: Trade Advice
I declined. Thanks all for confirming my gut feeling. I can lock this now
