Your Thoughts On A Trade (Need Some Help)

Recommended Posts

I'm in a league where we draft players, not a salary cap league. I was just offered this trade and I'm not sure what to do.

RECEIVE: Robin Van Persie & Christian Benteke (I know he's hurt, but it's a long season and he'll be back soon)

GIVE: Leighton Baines (My best defender) & Loic Remy

MY OTHER DEFENDERS: Phil Jones, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Ryan Shawcross, Calum Chambers, Eliaquim Mangala (the sleeper).

MY OTHER FORWARDS: Stevan Jovetic, Charlie Austin, and Harry Kane (the sleeper).

WHAT SHOULD I DO?!?!

That's a good trade for you.

I guess he is scared that van Persie might not be as useful with falcao in town. I don't agree with that. Benteke is a stud, aston villa build their attacks through him and he should be back soon.

I'm also guessing he is fearful of Diego costa getting injured. Otherwise Remy is nothing more than a substitute in premier league games.

Baines is the best defender in fantasy, but If your settings are what I think they are, he isn't as valuable as two good strikers.

Our league is on Fantrax, which sort of caters toward defenders. They get points for blocked crosses, for crying out loud. He is loaded with forwards somehow (Costa, Welbeck, Van Persie, Sanchez, Balotelli, Eto'o, Benteke). Don't ask me how. My biggest concern is losing a defender who can rack up major points because he takes PKs and free kicks. But Benteke might be worth it later down the road. And when Mangala is healhty, and hopefully starting over Demichelis, he could be a decent stand in for Baines.

He also wants Baines because his team name is "Bebe Juanna Baines?"

Wow, that changes things. I thought these were your usual run of the mill settings, i.e. 4 pts per clean sheet, 2 per 63 minutes, etc. I have never heard of a game that scores for blocked crosses and s---.

Baines scores just as well as other top defenders and he gets assists, goals, etc. it's impossible to replace a defender like that. Mangala is no baines. If defenders are the highest scoring players in your league then there is no way you can move baines.

I'd rather have Rvp than Sanchez/welbeck. Rvp in form is the best striker in the premier league.

That is the most bizarre scoring system i have ever seen.

Anyway, i don't think you can trade Baines. Leaving everything else aside, 6 per clean sheet as opposed to 1 per other outfield positions (if i'm reading this right) makes a huge difference by itself.
