I just started playing fantasy football this year and Finley has become one of my favorite players. I got Gates as my TE, but I wanted to trade Finley for him.

This is the thing. So far this year, Gates is beating Finley because on short yardage situations, Rodgers either runs it in himself, gives it to Kuhn, or looks for Driver. So Finley has 0 TDs. Gates has 4.

Finley racks up yards but I fear he'll finish with only 4 or 5 TDs this year while Gates will have 10.

Tell me why or why I shouldn't make that trade.
Thanks in advance.

You're talking about trading a top 3 TE for another top 3 TE lol. There's really not much of a difference between them as far as I can tell. Both will get lots of opportunities to put up points.

Gates will be the better fantasy player this year, especially with the absence of Vincent Jackson. I guess it just depends on if you want one of your favorite players or if you want the best player.

Thanks. You talked me out of it, although I'd have no problem with Finley slaughtering Gates and me losing out. Packers winning is more important than me winning fantasy.

Yeah, that's just one of the personal decisions one has to make when playing fantasy. Do they want to have a team with their favorite players or a team that has the best fantasy players. I can see it both ways. Sure, having a team with your favorite players may not be the best idea to win but it makes the wins SOO much sweeter when you get them and makes the games more fun.

I generally play to win. However, last season in a little side league I had all packers with the exception of the 2nd RB position. Rodgers, Driver, Jennings, Finley, Defense, Grant, Lee, etc. and I ended up winning the league!! It was pretty much a joke league but it was still cool!

I played in a homer league once... (in a homer league you're only allowed to pick players from a single team). I got my ass beat, I think it was 07 or 08 with the Packers. The bye weeks are pretty nasty.

Nonstopdrivel (1h) : So aggravating and unsatisfying.
Nonstopdrivel (1h) : I have the same sort of dyspeptic feeling after this game that I often had after big games coached by Mike McCarthy.
beast (1h) : Also Chiefs got an INT, then the guy lined up too close...
gbguy20 (1h) : you're right about the chiefs Defense. get stops on first and second then fail on 3rd and long time and time again
gbguy20 (1h) : the guy is incredible
gbguy20 (1h) : it's been a long time since we have seen rodgers play as well as brady did these last few weeks
rabidgopher04 (1h) : They are good, but I just don’t like them.
rabidgopher04 (1h) : Chiefs looked a lot like the McCarthy Packers of old. Amazing offense and a defense that can’t get a 3rd down stop. Probably not watching the Super Bowl this year. So tired of the Patriots. They are g
gbguy20 (1h) : do we get brady too?
Zero2Cool (4h) : So, Packers get 30th overall and 12th overall? SUPER BOWL BABY

Smokey (14h) : 100%
Smokey (19h) : 90%
beast (20-Jan) : Just a guess... but I think Burnett didn't like being a back-up... they drafted his replacement in the 1st round last year.
Smokey (20-Jan) : 80% of Pick'em Challenge players have posted. 2 still need to post their picks.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Tom Clements passing game coordinator and QB coach...Cardinals.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : He didn't like being Dime LB ... bummer
Nonstopdrivel (19-Jan) : Morgan Burnett wants to be released from his deal because he feels he's being played out of position.
buckeyepackfan (19-Jan) : Packers hire Kirk Olivadotti as linebackers coach, per report
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Why
gbguy20 (19-Jan) : luke getsy left town without a contract after interviewing for the wr and qb coach positions
beast (19-Jan) : Now I'm wondering if Nonstopdrivel is attempting to internet stalk me :P
beast (19-Jan) : Kirk O was 'Skins ILB coach
Nonstopdrivel (19-Jan) : Never mind, on second thought, it's not the same person.
Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : Now I'm wondering if beast's Twitter handle starts with J.
KRK (18-Jan) : If so, he will definitely have input on Preston Smith

Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : Whitt: The 2014 season haunts me. We had a team good enough to win a Suer Bowl and we didn’t get it done. Coach McCarthy deserves two Super Bowl rings.
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : I read it again and I was like whoa that came off extra ass'ish. Just making sure bud :D
Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : Dood, you've known me for 11 years now. I would think you'd have caught on to my taking-people-painfully-literally style of humor. :-P
wpr (18-Jan) : mom is always right.
Zero2Cool (18-Jan) : Rourke, I was only playing around, not being serious. In case there was a question about intent.

Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : It's a mixed bag, beneficial for some things (staving off Alzheimer's), not sure helpful for others (blood pressure).
Nonstopdrivel (18-Jan) : It's a mixed bag, really. Beneficial for some things (staving of , less so for others.
