Fantasy Team Name
Mr. Cooper's Cotton Pickers
I have presented with an intriguing "blockbuster" deal in a 12 team 1/2 pt PPR league. Passing Td's are worth 5 pts and all others are 6. Starting Lineup is 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex WR/RB/TE, 1 D/ST
I would be trading away Andrew Luck, Reggie Bush, Joique Bell, and Pierre Garcon
I would be getting Peyton Manning, Ray Rice, Bernard Pierce, and either Kenbrell Thompkins or Reuben Randle
(like Randle's upside a bit more so leaning towards him).
My problem is that my other backs are Jones-Drew and McGahee. Also picked up Andre Brown this week to stash. As much as I hate losing Garcon and his remaining SOS, I feel like I can make up most of that with my other WR's: V. Brown, H. Douglas, and R. Randle (if I got him). P. Harvin is also stashed on the bench. I am in 1st place in my division but have the least points scored so I'm thinking this is a great opportunity to shake things up. I feel like I cannot pass on Manning but need other opinions. Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for using our fantasy football trade analyzer! Given Peyton Manning's play thusfar I think you have to make this deal. The running backs you would get have underperformed thus far but that should change any day now. You clearly gain at quarterback but lose at wide receiver. Thats the key to all for me; wide receiver is very replaceable this season. As good as Garcon has been he can be replaced. You will miss him this weekend in a shootout with Dallas but
the addition of Manning will make up for the lost points.
Best of luck in week 6! Write in anytime for unlimited fantasy football trade advice!
