Fantasy Team Name
Rudolph the Redzone Reindeer
i'm trying very hard to trade for Alfred Morris, here's my latest offer, Alfred Morris and a 12th round pick for Darren McFadden, Mike Wallace and a 2nd round pick, fair or not? right now I got QB: Matt Ryan, RBs: CJ Spiller, Darren McFadden, WRs: AJ Green, Julio Jones, W/R Mike Wallace, DEF: Cardinals, K: Blair Walsh, BN: Sam Bradford, Johnathan Franklin, Denarius Moore, Cordarrelle Patterson, Coby Fleener, and Vikings DEF
Fantasy Football Trade Analysis -
Thanks for writing in. On paper this seems like a very fair trade but I can certainly understand he other owner's apprehension given Darren Mcfadden's injury history. That said I think you are right in that you should try to obtain a more reliable running back. Without seeing the other owners roster it is hard to say what he or she may be thinking but if the other owner is in need of wide receiver help and can spare the running back then the trade certainly makes sense. If I am guessing right this appears to be a dynasty or multiple keeper league right? I cant imagine many owners have a hard time letting a 12th round selection go so perhaps this person just doesn't like McFadden or really likes Morris this year.
Your offer is very strong, I would not go higher. There is always the outside chance Alfred Morris falls out of favor with Mike Shanahan which will kill his value (not likely this season) Who knows, maybe this is the year McFadden stays on the field for 16 games? (again not likely this season) We have seen nothing but brilliance out of McFadden when he is healthy so this owner's refusal to deal could be a blessing in disguise. If you strike out on this deal I would look to obtain Fred Jackson, the asking price should be reasonable and if anything happens to Spiller or Jackson you own an automatic top 5 fantasy running back. By the way, nice pick with Jonathan Franklin but word is Eddie Lacy has just about sewn up the starting gig in Green Bay - don't be afraid to deal Franklin if you need to.
