The NFL trading deadline may have come and gone with a whimper, but action remains fast and furious in fantasy leagues everywhere. So NFL Fantasy LIVE decided to ask America what players it would be willing to deal for. And we could just tell you the results, but what’s the fun in that?
Instead … we’re playing the feud! Team Sitcom, better known as Mike (Fabiano) and Molly (Qerim) challenged Adam Rank and Akbar Gbajabiamilia, aka Team Follically Challenged.
The first question was “Who would you trade for Andy Dalton?” Turns out the most popular answer was Tom Brady — something that would have been unthinkable as recently as September. However, the Red Rocket has been hot in recent weeks while Brady has been a fantasy enigma all season.
Next up: “Who would you trade for Reggie Bush?”
It’s not a shock that people would be willing to give up C.J. Spiller, but Alfred Morris was a bit of an eye-opener. After a slow start, Morris has picked things up, averaging nearly 90 rushing yards over his past three games. But you have to wonder if the specter of Shanahanigans has fantasy owners a little spooked.
Finally, we asked: “Who would you trade for Brandon Marshall?” Seeing A.J. Green at the top of that list might have been the most surprising answer of all. Did we miss something? Over the past four weeks, Green has looked like the top 10 fantasy receiver we thought he’d be at the start of the season. Or did everyone catch Marvin Jones Fever after last week?
