Hi, I needed a defense this week, I traded Bowe for Falcons Defense, and now I think it was horrible, I am winning, but Bowe played great, can you someone make me feel okay!

I know, I tried. Falcons were 6th on the point rankings for defense before today. Hopefully Falcons will come back next week.

Dwayne Bowe blew up today for some reason but he is still a low end #2 receiver. As far as the trade, I think it was a bad move. You could have easily picked up a D off the waivers if you only needed a D for one week. I don't really like trading position players for DST or K's.

Although I benched Greg Jennings this week and he puts up 19 pts so what do I know.

bowe had a good game, but cassell still sucks. bowe isn't going to have a game like this very often. i wouldn't worry about it too much.

at the same time, though, i wouldn't trade for a D unless i was getting something like the jets or steelers. other than that, just play the matchups by grabbing a D from waivers

Bowe isn't awesome but I'd never trade a starting offensive player for a defense. If you don't have a good defense at worst you can play matchups the rest of the season and pick a team that plays teams who give up a lot of turnovers or sacks and usually won't win the game.

I've never, in like 15 years of Fantasy Football, seen someone trade for a defense that wasn't far and away one of the Top 2 defenses in Football

Alright, thanks for telling me,it really doesn't matter, because its not like anyone knows everything. I was asking for people to say something kinda of positive, not negative.

So you just want people to just agree with the dumb decision you made. That's a good reason to start a thread.

Texans have the worst pass D ever. Bowe will go back to sucking and nobody knew the Falcons D would suck that bad this weekend. You should still never trade for a defense unless its a top 5 D. Just play the matchups with the waiver wire.

No, but you say you have never seen such an idiotic trade in 15, I was asking for you tell me if it was a good trade, not tell me about how you have played fantasy football for 15 years.

don't be so offended by it. It is pretty unheard of to see a 1 for 1 trade of a offensive player for a middle of the road defense.

They were ranked 6th in my espn rankings for defense, but what do I know, or what does anyone know, what if Falcons Defense would have gotten 28 points and Dwayne Bowe would have had 3 catches 48 yards.

Is it dumb to trade Bowe? No.

Is it dumb to trade Bowe for a defense that isn't the Jets or Steelers? Yes.

When your top D has a bye week, its best to just try to find a D that is playing a crappy offense to pick up on waivers that week.

Has fantasy football even existed for 15 years?

It's only existed in different forms for more then 40 years.

I've personally been playing since the 1987 season. My big money league just celebrated it's 23rd year of the same 10 guys playing.

Oh, haha. I've only been playing the last 5 or 6 years. Had no idea it's been around that long.
