Selling high on Alfred Morris....

Postby Virinder » Mon Oct 01, 2012 6:45 pm

I have two trade offers to me for Alfred Morris (way overrated as 5th best RB in fantasy) in my keeper league with prospects....plus Morris is a Shanahan RB and I don't want any part of that anymore!!

Here are the trades:

1. Stephen Jackson for Alfred Morris, straight up.

I know S-Jax is an upgrade, but how good is he really....he's not the legit RB1 that my team is looking for, either. We also need a rookie in our starting lineup, so I'd need a rookie from him too.

2. LeSean McCoy, Rod Streater, and Aaron Hernandez for Alfred Morris, Vernon Davis, and Matt Barkley.

McCoy is the legit RB1 I need, but Hernandez is hurt & according to the blog, he won't be back for a while as Welker is killing it. I suppose I will have to play Rudolph over him, which is okay. Streater is terrible, and I would have to trade for a better rookie if I do this trade too. Matt Barkley is coveted in this league, but I think he's way overrated and who knows how good a prospect will turn out. I definitely want to take this second trade, but what do you think?? Can Hernandez heal up fast so I can flip him for a great rookie?? Or, should I move Rudolph for a rookie instead??

Thanks in advance!!

You're getting the best player in the deal in McCoy. I'd make that second trade.

Hi again, thanks for all your help...

The second trade didn't go through, but I was offered another trade:

3. I give: Alfred Morris & Law Firm

I get: Jamaal Charles & Justin Blackmon


I know that Sky isn't high on Morris because he's a Shanahan RB and although he started with great matchups against the Rams, Bengals, & Bucs, he has much tougher matchups in the coming weeks! But, how much of a drop off will there be with him?? Should I sell high on Morris?? Plus, another thing is that I have to start a rookie every week in this league. Morris is my only rookie, so I'd have to start Blackmon if I do the trade. Can Blackmon improve?? Who wins this trade?? Thanks!!

You're giving up two RB2s for a high end RB2 and a rookie who Blaine Gabbert throws to. He's asking too much, Blackmon is not worth trading for at this time.
