I'm quite a newbie when it comes to fantasy football, so any sage advice would be great appreciated. I only started a commenter league because I enjoyed the Razzball Baseball Commenter Leagues so much that I wanted to try out the football side of things.
Anyway, I've been offered Tom Brady for Steve Smith. At first glance, it seems like a great trade, but when I look at my team, I begin to lean against it. It's a ten team standard league (commenter league team).
Here's my team as it stands...
QB - Rivers
WR - G. Jennings, S. Smith, B. Lloyd
RB - C. Johnson, D. McFadden
TE - J. Finley
K - A. Henery
Def - Houston
Seatle, Tamme (TE), Meacham (WR), Redman (RB), Spiller (RB), Shaub (QB)
So from what I understand I probably don't need to carry Tamme and Seatle on my bench... but I like having my bye weeks taken care of. If I accept the trade, I'll most likely drop Shaub and pick up a semi-mediocre receiver to replace him.
I could counter him, maybe offer Shaub/Smith for Brady/ +someone else... but no one else really catches my eye... Helu? D. Moore? He's got Michael Turner, but I doubt he'd give him up..
