I would've taken the Caddy for Plummer trade as Caddy won't leave your bench and will have marginal value when people realize he has taken over Pittman's role-lots of yards, no touchdowns.
I just didn't feel like it was worth giving up a #2 (albeit #3 on my team) back to get an erratic-as-h**l QB (Jake the Flake) who probably won't see much more playing time on my team than Caddy. I don't know long Anderson will be starting in Denver, and Barlow is, well, Barlow.
I did, however (with the help of Plindsey
) propose a trade to the Peyton Manning Owner:
My Gates, Anderson, and Delhomme for his P. Manning. (he's thin
at RB, and already has Tatum Bell, so maybe a 3 for 1 is too good for him to pass up.) If he accepts, problem solved.
If he doesn't, (Which I really don't expect him to) I figure I can always grab a #2 QB off the WW after Week 1, when I'm gonna have a spot (or two) opening up.
Either way, I think I'll be OK (if I get Peyton I'll be better than OK, I'll be d**ned near unstoppable).
BTW, Delhomme did throw for 3,900 yards and 29 scores last year, so I feel like he's at least an adequate every week QB (he may not repeat those numbers this year, but I think he'll at least come close, and my team's not built around a QB, so that's good enough for me.)
Anyway, thanks for all the feedback and help!
