Thoughts on this trade offer?

Postby Camperhead » Wed Aug 24, 2011 3:00 pm

I just received an offer in which I would receive Ryan Matthews and a third-round pick (30th overall) in exchange for Joe Flacco. It's appealing in a sense, but my gut reaction is that 1) Matthews isn't at this point looking anything like the shining star we foresaw a year ago, 2) I already have Tolbert; do I really need to sew up the Charger backfield?, and 3) I already feel like QB is our weak link in a league that allows us to play QBs at the flex position (so it's sort of a two-QB league).

I love the fact that I'm getting any offers at all, since I've been complaining that trades are very rare in this league. We're going into our third season, and there have only been six trades -- four of which were orchestrated by me, two of those coming in the last ten days -- and ours is the only team that has ever acquired draft picks in a trade.

However, I'm not seeing this as a deal that makes my team any better right now, and I don't see anything in this draft (Thursday night) that is going to improve our chances to contend THIS year. In short, it sort of seems like a step backwards.

Thanks in advance for any and all input!

Interesting value...but you don't need that trade.

In a superflex league, no way would I do that trade. Especially since it'd leave you with just Sanchez.

Not in a start 1 QB league and even less in a superflex league! Keep Flacco!

Exxxxxxxactly!

Tried to finagle this into a three-way, flipping Mathews and the 1.05 for Vick (who is "on the block"), but the Vick owner wouldn't bite, so I just pulled the plug on all of it. Thanks.

Sanchez is the most over hyped, overrated QB in the league (although i do expect better numbers then last year)... I would keep Flacco...
