I am looking to move Eddie Lacy to improve my RB position and possibly add a WR. I'm currently 5-2 in a 10 team PPR league. My current team consists of P. Manning (QB), Kaepernick (QB), Lacy (RB), B Tate (RB), R. Jennings (RB), Richardson (RB), A. Brown (WR), M. Wallace (WR), K. Wright (WR), A. Robinson (WR), R. Wayne (WR), J. Cameron (TE), V. Davis (TE). The guy I'm looking to trade with, his team consists of Foles (QB), E. Manning (QB), Charles (RB), Ellington (RB), T. Mason (RB), M. Ball (RB), E. Sanders (WR), Garcon (WR), A. Johnson (WR), A. Boldin (WR), & Kelce (TE). I am looking at a trade of Lacy, Richardson, & V. Davis for Andre Ellington & Pierre Garcon. Should I do this or maybe target someone else from his team. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Fantasy Football Trade Analysis -
Thank you for using our fantasy football trade analyzer! Ellington is a great target in a PPR format. This scoring system also raises his price tag. If you think the other owner will take that deal I'd get it on the board right away, its a good deal for you despite the loss of RB depth you would experience. The main draws for him would be the "on paper" upgrade at tight end (i'm not convinced Vernon Davis will outscore or even catch up to Travis Kelce by year's end) and Lacy's favorable upcoming schedule. Trent Richardson is a bit of a throw in of course but might be enough to tip the scale in your favor. If I was him, I wouldn't take this deal. Ellington is too involved in the Arizona passing attack for me to give up in a PPR. I'd need a lot more incentive to break up that duo of Ellington and McCoy. Which brings me to my next point. If McCoy puts up a bad game against Arizona (which is very likely given their prowess against the run) I'd offer all 3 players for McCoy straight up. He may be just sick enough to do it and the Philly offensive line is getting better and healthier by the day - perfect time to buy low if he has a rough go of it today.
Best of luck in week 8! Drop by anytime or free fantasy football trade advice!
