For team WP below. I give Flacco/Olsen/K Wright. I get Schaub/J Cook/C Benson. Need flex help, baaaaad. Have two RBs with their HCs and no other options. And my WRs are basically AJ Green/S Johnson, and a bunch of crap. Basically trading bench players for Benson to round out my starting lineup. Thoughts? BTW, we are on roster min/max limits of 2QB/4RB/5WR/2TE/2D/ST/K . . .

i would do that trade, Schaub is and excellant #2 QB and Benson is good flex and gives your team depth at RB.

The trade is OK and gives you some flexibility. One of the reasons that I dislike HC's is the lack of depth for bye weeks. You can drop Wilson, since Brown is the HC for Bradshaw, and replace him with a ww te for your bye week and try to get more starting help with the trade by not including a TE in the deal, especially if you can only start one TE. I would rather get another RB2 along with Benson than Olsen.

You could do the same with the qb, but that does have risk if you have an injury to Brees that is more difficult to overcome.

Another thought, you may be selling too low on Flacco at this time. He is on a roll and the trade places equal value on Schaub and Flacco, which is not the case. I would shop Flacco and see what other offers I could get. I like the Flacco end of the trade much better than the Schaub end. Olsen is better than Cook, also. For some reason, I thought you were getting Olsen and giving Cook when I wrote my original response.

Change my vote, I don't do the trade. I do like the addition of Benson, but think you can broker a better deal with Flacco and Olsen as bait.

What RBs and WRs are on your waiter wire. I am in a similar league with fixed roster spots and I find that there is always someone to pick up? I would like to know who is available before pulling the trade off. Is Mendenhall available?

1Putt and Tim. Mendenhall not available and I am in first place so last on WW. RBs out there are McCluster, Ronnie Brown, Woodhead, etc. My problem was I only had two possible teams (out of a 12 team league) to trade with 'cos most of em had servicable QBs. I targeted trades with the teams that had Rivers and Schaub. My other problem was having both Olsen and Graham with week 6 byes. Felt I had to make a move this week.



Trade ended up being Flacco/L Miller/Olsen for Schaub/C Benson/Cook. I would not have had as big of a problem if FLEX was RB/WR/TE, but in this league it is only RB/WR . . . . Lame . . . And the fixed roster spots were hurting me too. I was trying to push for the same trade with Torrey Smith and K Wright being the key swaps, rather than Benson and L Miller, but the other team backed out on it in the end.



Rolling the dice a bit, but I think this gives me a decent starting lineup, and I can hope for some bye week fill ins as we proceed. Sitting at 1st place and 4-0 in this league right now . . .
