I have a trade proposed to me - I give Big Ben and get H Miller and Rivers or Palmer. He asked me to input the trade and now he is holding up to decide which QB to put in the trade. He hates Rivers so that is who he will eventually include.

Another owner just approached me about a Big Ben for Hernandez or Rudolph.

In checking the TA and the results surprised me. The TA likes the original trade best with Miller. It says great trade make the deal (good for starting lineup with no impact on roster value). For Hernandez it says has value make the trade. (less value than the Miller trade for starting lineup, +20.6 points vs +43 points at TE) but still positive and roster value decreases). For Rudolph, it says has no impact on starting lineup and roster value decreases) suggests not to make the trade.

Should I aggressive persue Hernandez and pick up a fill in for Brady's bye week. It does leave me exposed if Brady were injured. Or continue to work the original trade, which I think he will finally make.

It is going to like the qb back trade better because of the bye week cover. I like the hernandez trade and then going out to fa for a one week qb later on. You are going to need to keep one of the other TE's as well though to cover for Hernandez' bye.

trick, that is what I thought originally; however, the te only improvement shows that Hernandez is 20.6 points better than Finley for weeks 7-16 and 43 points better for Miller for the same period. I am sure that 10-12 points fo the delta are due to Miller's not having a bye week during the period. Just surprised me that the TA likes Miller better than Hernandez for the rest of the year. I think I will run the Draft Analyzer and see if Miller is rated higher than Hernandez for the remainder of the year. I will post the results.

Ran the Draft Analyzer and Miller is the 2nd rated TE behind Gonzo for the ROS. Hernandez is 9th. That's why it likes the trade with Miller better.

It ranks them as follows for my scoring system (PPR)

Gonzo, Miller, Graham, Witten, Daniels, Gronk, Vernon Davis, Olsen, Hernandez, Celek

TA only gets you so far.... Id put my money on Hernandez for the rest of the year. Do the deal for Hernandez as long as you can pick up something to cover Brady's bye week.

The Hernandez owner wants more than Big Ben for him, so he is out. Looks like it is going to end up Rivers/Miller for Big Ben/Finley. He had countered with Palmer and Finley, but I opted for Rivers/Finley since Rivers has a better match up for Brady's bye week. He just has to hit the button, since he asked me to enter the trade again, but we did agree on the phone to do it.
