Benson for Hasselbeck?

Postby FillyP » Wed Oct 05, 2011 11:31 am

Is this a good trade for me? Our league runs 2 QB's - I've got Stafford, Cutler and Grossman (lol). We're only allowed 1 Bench QB, so I would have to drop Grossman.

I'm stacked at RB with McCoy, McFadden and Rice. Also have Tolbert. Benson is a beast, but the only viable QB on the WW is Alex Smith.

Are you in a 6-team league? Rice, McCoy, McFadden and VJax were all off the board in the top 24 picks this year, so either your league is tiny or the other owners are so clueless that you don't even need to be in a forum asking for advice.

Anyway, in a 2 QB league, I think that trade makes sense. You have 3 studs plus Tolbert for bye week cover so you should be fine (if a little thin - maybe try to pick up another decent RB as depth), and you know Hass will have to play at least 2 weeks when the others have byes, and possible more since I wouldn't bet on Cutler and Stafford both playing 16 games.
