What moves have you made this year your kicking yourself for

Postby LS2throwed » Fri Oct 06, 2006 3:25 am

As far as trades, waiver moves, or something you didnt jump on fast enough....I know i have a few....


1. I was the first to grab doug gabriel in his first game, no one wanted him in a trade, i was tight for room and had to drop him before his 2nd game, of course everyone ran to gobble him up then and he looks like a steal all year....


2. I traded MBIII...hasnt hurt me yet, but the minute Jones goes down, and i dont think he will go all year healthy, its going to kill me and i wanted to keep him for that moment....

3. Greg Jennings sitting on the WW for 2 or 3 days while i contemplated picking him up, and someone else grabbed him while i was playing around....i had him on my watch list, dont know why i didnt take him, this one really hurts because he's a stud now....just didnt act fast enough

Although you win some and you lose some, i traded S Jax for maroney and brees, and at the time only had warner at qb who was killing me, brees has been lighting it up and i havent noticed the dropoff at rb with maroney so that was one of my better moves....


although its still early in the year and plenty time to make good moves, it sucks making a move, or not jumping on a player when you know you should and you get burnt :-t

the only think Ive done that I regret was draft carr in the late rounds and then drop him b4 the first week figuring he wont do much.

I dropped him to pick up betts to handcuff portis for I orginally thought duckett would be the primany back up....

I regret not picking up Colston. He sat on waivers until after the second week but I was too slow to grab him in one of my pools. Now Im screwed at TE.

Trading Julius Jones and Chester Taylor for LaMont Jordan and Javon Walker before the season.

Javon has been good, but needless to say, Jones and Taylor have each outperformed Jordan tremendously.

Mistakenly dropping Dominic Rhodes instead of Deangelo Williams in a rush to grab Maurice Morris. Now I know why you're supposed to LOOK at the confirm page before hitting confirm. In retrospect keeping both of them instead of Morris was probably the right call :(

Not making the draft, and thinking I'd rated enough players for the first few rounds and thinking I'd make it by at least the 3-4th round, and not getting there until round 16 of 19.
