Expert Advice Needed 2-3-0 Rookie

Postby Reddogs » Tue Oct 08, 2002 9:06 pm

Expert Advice needed to turn this slump I'm in around.

I sure could use advice from you more expierence players.

I'm new this year to Fantasy Football and don't really know how the trends go and I'm getting a little discouraged.
I'm also not sure how to manage my roster efficently.

Do I keep two defenses? There both rather good. I keep losing it seems to good defenses that do well when my don't.

I know I have three TE's but my league dosn't do much trading unless you give alot away....... (There greedy, like me)
So do I give a lot away or dump them to the wire for a pick up?

Should I trade one of my QB's, there both good and I'm a little nervous about doing that, one could get hurt?

Maybe I also should trade the San Diego Chargers as they head into tougher offensive teams?

What I'm thinking is I need to trade for a better RB, more depth. Other than that I just seem do be on the bad end of the stick.

Losing Record: 2-3-0 The leader of the league has a 4-1-0 record. ( The last guy to beat me. Good team: Gannon/Tampa Bay/Tomlinson )

65pts: lost week-2 bye 1pt.
79pts: lost week-4 bye 3pt
78pts: lost week-5 bye 21pt

Here's my team 10/8 week 6 :

QB Bledsoe, Drew (QB-Buf)
WR Horn, Joe (WR-NO)
WR Steve Smith (WR-Car)
WR Harrison, Marvin (WR-Ind)
RB Holmes, Priest (RB-KC)
RB Lewis, Jamal (RB-Bal)
TE Heap, Todd (TE-Bal)

Bench Sharpe, Shannon (TE-Den)
Bench Stallworth, Donte'DTD (WR-NO)
Bench Chambers, Chris (WR-Mia)
Bench Holt, Torry (WR-StL)
Bench Favre, Brett (QB-GB)
Bench Lewis, Chad (TE-Phi)

K Akers, David (K-Phi)

DEF San Diego (DEF-SD)
Bench Denver (DEF-Den)


Waiver Wire: Guy's I'm looking at?

Deion Branch (WR-Ne)
McCaffrey, Ed (WR-Den)
Pathon, Jerome (WR-NO)
Patten, David (WR-NE)
Terrell, David (WR-Chi)
Freeman, Antonio (WR-Phi)
Ismail, Qadry (WR-Ind)
Hilliard, Ike (WR-NYG)
Muhammad, MuhsinD (WR-Car)
Mason, Derrick (WR-Ten)

Staley, Duce (RB-Phi)
Williams, Moe (RB-Min)
Mack, Stacey (RB-Jac)
Portis, Clinton (RB-Den)
White, Jamel (RB-Cle)
Smith, Antowain (RB-NE)
Pittman, Michael (RB-TB)

RB's I really Want to trade for:

Charlie Garner (Oak) (The guy wants alot for him, like P. Holmes)
L-Tomlinson (SD) ( Probally won't do it, He's the leader in the league, unless I really bait him.)
D. Mcallister (NO) ( Have to give a lot for this guy.)
Williams, Ricky (Mia) (The guy who own's him just dosn't want to trade him.)

Sorry for the long post. Just thought I should give the proper info.
Thanx's for the help!!

Keep the team you have. Dont be stupid and trade Holmes. You have a good enough team to win. Waive Sharpe, and Lewis. Tight ends are replaceable. Pick up Portis and Staley. Rb's are a must.

your team looks fine. I would drop 2 of your tight ends. You have 3 decent ones so it doesn't really matter which one.

Grab Portis/White

Portis is now the starting back in Denver
White has all but taken the job away from Williams

RB depth is nice to have

if you want to trade maybe package a deal with one of your QB/DEF to try and get a top WR. Moss or Owens. Might be able to get them cheap since neither is tearing it up right now. Just make sure there is something half way decent on the waivers to fill in for their bye week.

even with out a trade after grabbing those waivers you should have a very complete team.
