So as some of you already know, I really messed up a draft of mine early in the year. We drafted the weekend of the first pre season games. I went RB stupid in the draft mainly due to the fact that most teams still had 4 preseason games to go at that point and I didnt want to lose a back before the games counted. Plus I figured I could move these backs if other owners lost stud Rbs.
I am 0-2 now. 12 team league and I have the 3rd most points. Go figure. My WR3 & TE have combined for a total of 6.50 points over two weeks. So I know my weak links. I play another 0-3 team this week, who frankly probably has a better team then I do. I can not go 0-3.
Posted a message on the league board that I was ready to take a value loss on any of my backs for a decent WR & TE. I swear the league is boycotting me right now due to prior success. Sent out about a dozen trade offers, and no bites. Everything offered was crap.
I am somewhat upset with the league right now. All former co-workers. No trades in the league yet. 6 weeks in mind you. I am just not having fun.
So as is, It doesnt look good for my team to win it all. So now my idea/only real option is to take a mad loss on a first round pick. Addai. The guy who has the most WR talent is in first & the points leader by far. Talked to him for a bit tonight to try and work something out. The best offer I am getting is Wayne for Addai strait up. Giving him by far the best team in the league.
His roster would look like this
QB- Big Ben
WR - S.Smith
WR - Randy Moss
WR - Braylon Edwards
TE - LJ SMith
He rotates Kickers and D
and would still have A. Peterson (min), Santonio holmes, Norwood, D. Ward on the bench.
My roster would then look like
RB - McGahee
RB - T. Jones
WR - Driver
WR - Burress
TE - Scaife
I think this team would give me a more legit chance to win. But I still dont like getting so little for addai.
The issue that comes into play is that I know the League members would Veto this trade. That is just how my league work. And I kind of hope they do. Maybe this way I can get people to try and outbid his offer.
I am under the impression that people dont want to work out a deal because they know I am slightly hard up right now and are looking for a great deal... But if I give that deal to the best team, I might be limiting myself to a second place finish, but also could actually get the trade winds I am looking for swirling.
SUMMARY for anyone who didnt read this.... Take a vetoable trade (best offer as of yet) and make the case that no one offered anything as good as my reason to accept in hopes of getting a better deal
What do you guys think of this? I dont want to come off as a a quiter or suspect owner, but im in a corner here.
Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Fourty percent of people know that.
