Yet Another Fantasy Trade QuestionI know I asked for some help before, but reflecting on week 1 has me begging for advice again. The trade:
I give: Matt Leinart, Larry Johnson, Joey Galloway
I get: Alex Smith, Shaun Alexander, D.J. Hackett
Hackett's hurt, but I have Roy Williams and T.J. Houshmandzadeh starting anyway. Galloway is just a backup as is Hackett. Only concern is bye weeks and injuries there. Leinart and Smith are almost a wash IMO. I'd rather have Leinart, but whatever. The crux of the trade is obviously LJ for SA. Am I wrong to panic this quick to negotiate a trade that deals LJ? He will go through 5 weeks of pain before any alleviation comes. After that the schedule gets easier, but does that matter? The offense is terrible other than him, and the offensive line is terrible. They'll be all over him. Whaddya think?Advertisement

I think you should hold on to what you have. I don't like that trade that much.

Leinart/Smith advantage sligthly Leinart... with his receiving core.
LJ/Shaun advantage sligthly Alexander... better passing attack, more consistent and a slightly better line. Hard to trade against LJ potential though. I also NEVER go by schedule. If the guy is a stud the guy is a stud. So what he only puts up league average points against a great team.
Galloway/Hackett advantage Galloway. I think he will be Garica's go to man. Hackett still trying to make a name for himself could be a good #2 receiver someday.
Sep 11, 07, 08:30 PM #4I don't like it for you. Stand pat. Hackett is worthless.

I'm with you. I am not high on LJ at all this year. I would take it, the rest of the players in the trade are a wash. I also have a philosophy that if you really watch the waivers you can almost always get a decent 3rd reciever. So, unless you think you can get someone better than SA in a trade involving LJ, I'm taking this trade.

Sep 12, 07, 12:43 AM #10I like Leinart over Smith and I like SA over LJ. If it were a keeper league I probably wouldn't pull the trigger but I think SA will have a great bounce back season.

So basically, it's LJ for Shaun Alexander? If I were going to make the trade, I'd just include those two but, I'd keep LJ, if I were you...you're mistaken about LJ not putting up numbers against good teams. If you check his performances against good defenses, he produces. The fact is, he's the second best RB in the NFL, so he can produce against anybody...

@ Oakland - 31 rush, 135 yds, 1 TD
Jacksonville - 33 rush, 138 yds, 5 rec, 22 yds, 3 TD
I wouldn't buy into the idea that LJ won't do anything because the schedule is tough, nor worry about it. If I was going to trade LJ for anyone other than LT, I'd make sure I was getting the better end of the deal at the other positions. I think Alexander is a bigger risk than LJ, but even if both stay healthy, I'd bet on Johnson to give you better fantasy production. I think Alexander is on the backside of his career and LJ is at his peak.
