Standard point league
QB M. Stafford
RB C.J. Spiller
RB G. Bernard
WR C. Johnson
WR K. Allen
TE J. Graham
DF SF 49ers
K B. Walsh
My bench: WR B. Cooks, WR Maclin, WR T. Williams, TE M.Bennett, QB Big Ben, RB C. Hyde RB P. Thomas
Now the hard part: Trade proposed to me for Jimmy Graham and any bench warmer for RB T. Richardson and RB A. Morris. He also has TE J. Reed that I could counter a 3 combo package for? Do I pull the trigger or ride thin in the RB section?
Fantasy Football Trade Analysis -
Thanks for using our fantasy football trade evaluator! I don't think you are all that thin at Running back. Anyone who has more than 4 backs on their roster is likely light elsewhere. Pierre Thomas led all running backs in receptions and targets last season - all while Darren Sproles was still on the roster. Regardless of what the Times Picayune keeps saying The saints are not a power running team, they will not change their pass happy ways and Pierre Tomas is their most complete back (and it's not close) The running backs offered are just not exciting enough for me to recommend giving p the best tight end in the game. Coming out the gate you want firepower, not depth. If you want to add depth I would do two things; 1) add Bryce brown as insurance for CJ Spiller 2) Wait until one of your wide outs has a big game sell high.
One more thing to consider - assuming this is a redraft league without keepers, you would have had to take Jimmy Graham in the late first round or early second to get him. This means you had the opportunity to take Alfred Morris and chose Graham instead. Don't deal away the team you drafted for the sake of depth. Keep your studs unless you are offered a kings ransom. A 1 dimensional Back, a back who looks like he's finished and a roster depth throw in are not enough for me.
Best of luck in week one! Drop by anytime for unlimited fantasy football trade advice!
