  • I have recently been offered Arian Foster and Josh Gordon for Demarco Murray and Deandre Hopkins

    My roster after the trade would be as follows:

    QB1 Matt Ryan
    QB2 russell wilson

    RB1 Arian Foster
    RB2 Andre Ellington
    RB Frank Gore
    RB bishop Sankey
    RB Alfred Blue
    rb jerrick mckinnon

    Wr1 D. Thomas
    Wr2 randall cobb
    Wr 3 josh gordon

    Te jordan reed
    Te coby fleener

    K Dan Bailey

    D Rams

    I was in 1st place in my league, but ive dropped 3 in a row and am looking for options, i am guaranteed to make the playoffs, so i am banking on Arian fosters soft schedule going forward and josh gordons potential

    What do u guys think?

  • I wouldn't trade a known commodity/fantasy MVP (Murray) for potential output (Foster, Gordon). I mean, if it was one or the other, would you ever start Foster over Murray? Gordon is a total crapshoot, too - a pig in a poke. Personally, I wouldn't do it, but I'm not a big trade guy, though. What does your wavier wire looks like?

    Anyone else?

  • That's a good offer, but it's almost too lateral to be wise. Especially with the injury risk that Foster currently presents. I would pass.

  • I think im pulling the trigger. First Murray cant do this all year, second Josh Gordon is the best WR in the league. He literally lead all WR last year and only played in 14 games and all 14 with a horrible QB. Safe play is standing pat but I like the upside of Gordon.

  • I wouldn't trade Murray, I keep players having a career season like Murray is having.

  • I would stand pat as well. You're downgrading from Murray at RB no matter who you trade him for. Sure he's had a career of injuries, but every NFL player is an injury risk on every play, and Foster's extremely recent injury history is far more concerning. Gordon had a great year last year, but that doesn't make him a lock to blow up these last 6 games, Hopkins has proved to be a serviceable WR this year and gets the targets consistently enough to back it up.

  • I guess my objective in this trade is to beef up my flex position. Foster is actually averaging more fantasy points per game than Murray because he scores more touchdowns, and even if he misses a game, I have his handcuff in Alfred Blue so I'm not not as scared of foster's injury risk.

    Foster's remaining schedule is

    Bengals
    Titans
    Jaguars
    Colts
    Ravens

    Murrray also has nice matchups

    Giants
    Eagles
    Bears
    Eagles
    Colts

    Josh Gordon is the wildcard

    If he comes back to form, he is far and away a WR1 that i am using as a flex, and I need an upgrade over Gore for that position.

    If he falls on his face, I still have Gore or Sankey to use as a flex

  • The fact that you have Blue is actually one of the reasons I'm against this. If Foster is out for an extended period of time, then you have 2 high volume running backs instead of just one.

  • I maybe do this trade. I like Foster and I like Josh Brown. You have Blue that keeps you safe no matter what. Josh Brown has much higher upside than Hopkins and Foster, if healthy, can equal DM.

    Honestly, I think you end up in the same place by doing this trade as where you started, so, if you think Foster will be healthy, do it.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • Either way. Foster I think has higher upside than Murray when he's healthy. WHEN HE'S HEALTHY is key there. Murray so far has consistency though. Only one game below double digits I think? Gordon has talent, but is not proven this season. I'm sure he'll do fine, but don't forget about Hawkins, and even Austin to a lesser extent. Cameron will be back too. Gordon is no longer the only option.
