Thomas Jones (or Ray Rice) for Anquan Boldin?

Postby NinjaSpaz » Tue Nov 10, 2009 8:20 am

Our league plays 3 WRs and 2 RBs with no PPR. Here is my squad at those positions:

Wide Receiver:
  • Calvin Johnson (Recovering from injury)
  • Miles Austin (Flash in the pan?)
  • Percy Harvin (Solid, but young)
  • Steve Smith (Too early to call him an absolute bust?)
  • Chris Chambers (Took a flyer; why the heck not...)

Running Back:
  • Adrian Peterson
  • Ray Rice
  • Tomas Jones
  • Jamaal Charles
  • Beanie Wells

Considering I can only play 2 RBs each week, I was thinking that I need to bolster my WRs with an acquisition...
  • Would it be a good trade to try to dish a running back for Boldin?
  • If so, should I offer Thomas Jones (I would think) or Ray Rice?


Thanks,

You should be able to get way more than 'quan for either of those guys. I'd be targeting Roddy White as a more fair option. If you can't get White then maybe Colston would be my second option and Ocho my 3rd (depending upon league scoring). To be more clear, these trade options should be for tjones. If you're trading Ray Rice, I'd target maybe Vincent Jackson or a possibly slightly frustrated Andre Johnson owner (if you're league doesn't do PPR or yardage bonuses although this might be too much of a reach).
10 team H2H 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1Flex(including QB), 1D, 1K, 25 passing yds = 2pts, 5rush/rec yds = 1pt, all TDs 6pts, PPR

QB - Drew Brees
RB - C.J. Spiller
RB - Vick Ballard
WR - A.J. Green
WR - Julio Jones
WR - Chris Givens
TE - Greg Olsen
Flex - Matthew Stafford
D - Browns
K - Justin Tucker
BN - Darren McFadden
BN - Reggie Bush
BN - Marcel Reece
BN - Daniel Thomas
BN - Danario Alexander
BN - Eric Decker
BN - Malcom Floyd
BN - Ryan Broyles

Thanks, gentlemen. We haven't had a single trade in our league, so I'm thinking it will be hard to entice someone... which is why I set my sights lower for Boldin. But, excellent point that I should throw out offers for equal (or better) value to see if they stick.

Beyond the value-for-value comparison, I was hoping for some validation of the strategy. I'm assuming you agree that it would make more sense to get a better starting WR then to have Jones on my bench.
