Show me the TD's
I am in a 12 team keeper league and need to make a decision. Do I keep Tom Brady or trade him for Cam Newton?
Show me the TD's,
Thanks for writing in. One of the most important parts of fantasy football trade analysis is considering all aspects of the teams in question as well as the league itself. This being a fantasy football keeper league trade question adds a bit of intrigue to the equation. Tom Brady was once again lights out last season posting a whopping 5,235 passing yards with 39 touchdowns. Brady even Added 3 rushing touchdowns which obviously pale in comparison to Cam Newton's 14 Rushing touchdowns. In standard scoring fantasy football leagues rushing touchdowns award 6 points and passing touchdowns earn 3.5 or 4 points, making Cam's rushing prowess very enticing. In addition to the rushing scores Newton passed for 21 touchdowns on 4,051 yards through the air. The fact that this is a keeper league makes this a matter of preference. Tom Brady is a proven commodity with a stellar track record but let's face it, he is not getting any younger. Cam Newton is the young up and comer with limitless potential. The same could be said about Vince Young a few years ago and look where he is now. It may be difficult for Newton to repeat his 2011 success with his current supporting cast. Opposing teams now have tape on him and will be keying on his strengths. If its me, I'm keeping Brady. Until Cam proves he can do it every year I am sticking with the sure thing, but I could not blame you if you went out and got Newton. Have fun with it! I do not think you can go wrong here.
