Playoff Push _ Trade Shady?


#1

I’m (5-5) with highest points scored in league but with Zeke suspension and Deshaun Watson injury things have gotten bleak. This is a full PPR 12man league. The 11 other teams carry at least 2 QBs…some 3 so I’ve been playing roulette with QBs since Deshaun Watson tore ACL (obvious weak spot). What should I trade for ? Been offered Sterling Shep & Duke Johnson for Shady . Also Melvin Gordon for Shady (Austin zekler is on waivers so I could pick up as handcuff) … What do we think #footclan?

Week 11 Line up currently:

Eli Manning
Golden Tate
Julio Jones
Corey Davis
Jordan Howard
Shady McCoy
Charles Clay
Joe Mixon (flex)

Bench: Alex Collins, Samjee Prime, Corey Clement, TY Hilton, Rod Smith, T Bridgewater

Shady > Melvin still so I wouldn’t do that. The Shepard trade is closer because I think Shepard is a top 12-15 WR ROS…but still not enough to give up Shady. You’re selling him too low. He’s still a great RB1 despite a few bad weeks


#3

Agreed, thats what I fear but with the Bills going in a new direction I’m worried their offense is even more downgraded. What about for Cooper and Ajayi?


#5

So you get Cooper and Ajayi? I still don’t think that’s a good deal in your situation. You’re obviously downgrading at RB (although there is potential he could become a low end RB1), and Cooper doesn’t really have a spot on your starting roster. Not playing Cooper over Julio or Tate obviously, and I would flex Mixon or Davis over Cooper every week probably.


#6

In a full point PPR I like Shady for Shepard, but think you can get more for Shady on name value alone. If you want a QB, target one and ask for their best WR too for Shady and X player. Maybe that will net you something like Smith and Thomas or Wilson and Diggs, etc.


#7

I like one of those QB deals that include a WR1 for sure.That makes your WR core elite and you still have a low end RB1/high end RB2 in howard. But Shady for Shepard straight up is downright ludicrous. I think Shepard will be top 12 ROS in PPR, but trading a top 6 RB for a top 12 WR is just crazy talk unless you have like two other stud RBs on your roster.


#8

Alright guess I’m holding tight and crossing fingers with shady. Any other
suggestions?


#9

It might work to try and package like TY Hilton and Eli for a better QB. Maybe someone who is desperate at WR would trade you Prescott or another top 6 QB


#10

It was Sterling Shepard and Duke Johnson in full point ppr


#11

No way TY is on bye


#12

You can always ask…it’s not an egregious offer. Yea the Shepard/Duke Johnson deal isn’t too bad. I wouldn’t do it, but couldn’t blame you for wanting to


#13

How about Wentz and A Jefferey for Shady?
