I don't like this trade for you either. Yes, Rodgers is a beast, and you clearly upgraded at QB. But you weakened yourself at RB and TE. I think your team was very solid at all positions and that would have made up for Schaub going down.
Who was available at QB on the waiver wire? And who is the owners other QB that traded you Rodgers?
I was gonna roll with Hasselbeck. I was considering picking up Leinart just incase.
Heres why I made it. I didn't panic because Schaub went down. But I was shopping around.
If I wanted to upgrade my QB, I wanted to get the best QB out there. and the #1 Fantasy scorer in the league.
Rodgers averages 26 PPG ... Ray Rice+Jimmy Graham avg 28 ppg combined.
I still feel like I am solid @ RB with MJD/Mathews and Receiver Bowe/AJohnson/AntonioBrown/Harvin
my tight end, Dickson is coming off a strong game (19 points) . Hopefully he can continue to produce modest numbers.
If Dickson produces min 5 - 8 ppg and I can find a flex who can do the same (Antonio Brown or Percy Harvin) ..
Then I think i'll be ok. Maybe the trade wasn't necessary. But Oh well. We shall see.
