Fantasy Team Name
Standard Head to Head fantasy league, non-keeper. Do you think I should trade Michael Turner and Matt Schaub for Vincent Jackson and Shonne Greene? I need a better No. 3 wide receiver with Jordy Nelson, Mike Wallace, and Mike Williams as my wide receivers with Denarius Moore on the bench. I have Drew Brees at Quarterback so I don't necessarily need Schaub as a backup. At running back I have Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson, Toby Gerhart, as well as Michael Turner.
Thank you for writing in. While I certainly understand wanting to secure a reliable number 3 wide receiver I personally would rather have more security at the running back position. Running backs are scarce coming into 2012 and I for one feel the demise of Michael Turner is once again being overstated. Each year the pundits say “this is the year Michael Turner falls off the cliff” and every year he bangs in 10 touchdowns (give or take) His yards per carry be down a bit but he will still get the goal line touches and with the current dearth at the running back position I think he is worth a little more than a number 3 wide receiver. I love Denarius Moore’s upside this season and he could be ready to start in week one. (he’ll be a risky play with the late Monday night kickoff so you may want to start Mike Williams for week one. Its not that I think this is a bad deal I just think you can get better value for Turner and I absolutely hate Shonne Green this season. If you must sell Turner, sell high after he has a two touchdown game.
P.S. - Nice work handcuffing Adrian Peterson. You will thank yourself in a couple of weeks.
Hope this helps. Write in as much as like for unlimited comprehensive fantasy football trade advice!
