View Full Version : Trade Royal? Two offers.....

I think I need to upgrade at RB, but I'm not sure if either one of these offers really improves my team. Thoughts?

Offer #1: My WR Eddie Royal for his RB Jamal Lewis.

Offer #2: My WR Eddie Royal and RB Michael Turner for his RB Clinton Portis and WR Brandon Stokley.

Here's my current team:

starters in bold

QB - Favre
RB - SJax
RB - Turner
WR - Steve Smith
WR - Royal
TE - Carlson
W/T - Chad Johnson
W/R - LJ

WR - Breaston
WR - Engram
WR - Crayton
RB - Ahman Green
RB - Pittman
QB - Frerotte

Should I try to upgrade at RB, or should I just stand pat? QB could also us an upgrade....

No FA pickups??

No, every decent RB has been scooped up in my league. It's a 12 teamer.

Jerrious Norwood is probably the best available, and I'm a bit hesitant to pick him up since I already have Turner.

Well don't trade for a hurt portis that's just crazy. Second if jackson comes back healthy they should have a monster remaining games because the STL schedule is cake.

I would stay where you are for two reasons.

1. When SJax comes back...you'll have a good RB duo.
2. Your WR core without Royal would be your weak point if you trade him away.

For me #2 would def. be out, Portis is hurt and may be out for a while and Turner, while he has fallen off lately, he is running against the Denver Defense.

You have a hell of a good receiving corp though, if you trade away Royal you can start Breaston, who I believe is good, and will have a good week. I had him and I wish I wouldn't have traded him. Plus they play SEA.

my $.02, but I wish I would be in your position right now. My team has been decimated by injury and suspensions.
