Fantasy Players = Children....

Postby bmmac27 » Tue Sep 19, 2006 8:16 pm

I hate....hate.....hate....hate.....fantasy owners that treat their players like they are their first born children....I mean seriously if you had

RB
Rudi, Gore, Edge, Bush

WR
D Jackson, Coles

TE
Miller

And you could have traded Rudi....just Rudi to get...Gates, Housh, and K Jones


I thought it was more than fair, seriously....people over valuing players is getting on my nerves...

Thats not that bad. Rudi is a top tier running back, and Housh is an injury risk, Gates not performing up to standards with Philip Rivers, and Jones has been awful the past season. Maybe he just doesnt want to give up Rudi that easily.

I wouldn't give up Rudi for that list. Heath Miller for him is going to be solid this year, Gates is a stud but questions remain with Rivers, and Housh hasn't been healthy all year.

Hehe. How can you get mad at someone coz they don't accept your offer. It's not like you gave him an offer he couldn't refuse.

People reject your offers all the time, its something you gotta learn to deal with. Didnt help that you're picking the worst time to make that offer. Gates and Housh are at the lowest value they've had in a long time, whereas Rudi's value is still very high.

I've almost never seen a 3 for 1 trade that I like. I would have declined too. You can't offer three guys who equal the scoring of one guy and expect someone to accept. You can't start 3 guys at one position.

This isn't a terrible trade offer, but teams who are winning tend to be risk averse.

One star running back is better than 103 bench players. Granted, Housh would see the starting lineup when healthy, but it is much easier to obtain a WR than a stud RB. That's why none of those players you are offering were probably drafted before the 4th round. I think you are the one overvaluing less important positions.

the other owner could start a thread moaning about people who try to trade away a package of their underachievers for studs
