McFadden/Winslow for Gates/Donnie Avery

McFadden/Winslow for Gates/Donnie Avery

Title pretty much says it all.

12 team NON PPR league. 20 for a point RB/WR. 50 for a QB. All TD's are 6. Bonus points at 100,150, and 200 yards for RB/WR.

Start QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, RB/WR/TE, K, DEF

Team right now:

QB: Schaub, Garrard, Flacco
RB: Turner, Tomlinson, McFadden, Beanie Wells, Donald Brown
WR: Calvin Johnson, Wes Welker, Eddie Royal, Earl Bennett
TE: Dustin Keller, Kellen Winslow
K: Kris Brown
DEF: Green Bay

His Team:

QB: Rodgers, Campbell
RB: Barber, Reggie Bush, Stewart, Maroney
WR: Greg Jennings, Anthony GOnzalez, Berrian, Avery, Ginn Jr. Galloway
TE: Gates, Heath Miller

I know TE's dont traditionally score more than RB2's or WR2's, what McFadden could potentially be, but my team may be set with Gates at TE and I do need some depth at WR behind flex starter Royal. I'm guaranteed to start CJ, Welker, Tomlinson, and Turner every week until the wheels fall off.

In a non PPR league, I don't do this trade. In non-PPR leagues, running backs score far more than tight ends or wide receivers. The drop-off from Antonio Gates to Kellen Winslow or Dustin Keller is not as substantial as the drop-off from Darren McFadden to Donnie Avery.


Antonio Gates

85 receptions (irrelevant in non PPR)
1000 yards (he's only reached 1000 once)
8 touchdowns

= 98 points (not including bonus points)



Kellen Winslow or Dustin Keller

60 catches
700 yards
5 touchdowns

= 65 points (not including bonus points)


Darren McFadden

244 carries
1073 yards
7 touchdowns
43 catches
400 yards
1 touchdown

= 121 points (not including bonus points)


Donnie Avery
62 catches
750 yards
6 touchdowns

= 73.5 points






And I consider those projections for McFadden to be conservative....and I think the projections for Antonio Gates are a bit too high.
Good way to look at it...Thx.

I actually would do it if and only if he substituted Avery with Gonzo.



With that said. Having Keller and Winslow you should be fine at TE. Don't see the need to trade away yor RB3 for a WR4. You can trade Beanie or Brown to add an extra body at WR if you so desire.

Yea, that's what I'm trying to do now...but value isn't very high in this league I'm in on the two rooks right now...hopefully they go apeshi* on game and I can sell high.
