16 team dynasty. Our draft is next Sunday (Sept.1) and I currently have the 9th pick in every round, there are 7 rounds in the draft.
League details -
Starters: QB, 2 RB, 3WR, TE, K, team D
All TD's are 6 pts, 1 pt/75 yds passing, 1 pt/25 yds rushing or recieving
My current roster -
Joe Flacco, Andy Dalton
Trent Richardson, Shonn Greene, Jacquizz Rodgers
Pierre Garcon, Alshon Jeffery, Malcolm Floyd, Denarius Moore, Greg Little, Jarius Wright
Obviously my most glaring weakness is RB. (Isn't that everyone's problem?)
One of the other owners was able to finagle 6 picks in the first round, and he earned the top pick all by himself, mainly by playing the wrong guys each week, his team really wasn't that bad.
Anyway, as the preseason has progressed, my opinion is that one rookie RB is head and shoulders above the rest this year - Giovanni. The others have some value, but Gio is the only one that I feel has the potential to be a fantasy stud for years to come.
Looking at the needs of the teams ahead of me in the draft, I believe that 6 RB's and 2 WR's will be gone. That leaves my current options at RB looking something like Jonathan Franklin, Knile Davis, Zac Stacy, or Christine Michael; Bryce Brown, Roy Helu, Knowshon Moreno and Joique Bell are also now available after drops have been made.
My question is, do you think it is worthwhile to work out a trade for the #1 pick in order to nab the guy I really want in Gio, or just hold fast and hope one of those other options pans out? I would like to get a full time starter at RB with my first round pick (I know, Gio isn't there yet, but I believe he will be by mid season).
If I make a trade, what would be worthwhile for me to give up? He has no glaring needs - his roster includes RG3, Stafford, Martin, Morris, Calvin, G. Tate, Blackmon, Hankerson, and K Rudolph.
Thanks in advance and leave a link!
