Do I trade Calvin Johnson?

Post by NextQuestion » Mon Oct 01, 2012 11:15 am

He's been very OK at best and my RB situation sucks. Do I trade him for Murray and Wayne?

Team would look like this:

QB: Rivers
RB: Forte
RB: Murray
WR: Harvin
WR: Lloyd
WR: Wayne
TE: Celek
D: ATL
K: rotate that out

bench:
DeAngelo Williams
Ryan Williams
Michael Crabtree
Andrew Luck
Ramses Barden (who I'll have to drop)

No, I don't think so he's still the best WR in the game in my book, the guy will produce. Johnson, Harvin and Lloyd is a very solid WR lineup and you're set with Forte (as long as he can get back and stay healthy). If you did that trade, you'd be buying high and selling low.

+1 on that. They better be giving you a top tier running back for a top tier WR. It's only been 4 weeks.

I'm also 1-3 and have had back to back 60 point weeks because of RBs.

So out of my RBs this week who do I play?

Forte, Ryan Williams, DeAngelo Williams, CJ Spiller (pick 2)

CJ Spiller is like a better DeAngelo but faces SF D

Ended up trading Percy Harvin and DeAngelo Williams for LeSean McCoy. While my RBs look great my WR corps is #### this week.

QB: Rivers (should be good vs NO)
RB: Matt Forte
RB: LeSean McCoy
WR: Brandon Lloyd
WR: Michael Crabtree (playing the Bills...could be ok?)
WR: Andre Roberts (total gamble but seems to be coming to life)
TE: Celek (there's nobody else out there)
K: New kid from STL
D/ST: ATL
