Hi. After a nice 2-0 start, I'm about to go 3-3 unless roddy white has a really bad night tonight. After the draft, with LT, Marvin Harrison, and Chad and Andre Johnson on my team I was feeling pretty good. After week 3, the SJax owner started shopping him from nervousness, so I picked him up for Marvin and Chris Brown. I was cleaning a spot on the mantle for a championship trophy. That trade was made after week 3, week 4 was played without it taking effect, and the morning after week 4 both players were injured. Andre Johnson got hurt as well, he was my third starting WR.
SO... Suddenly my dream team tandem at RB wasn't so dream team and I was hurting at WR. The Byes started with the scrambling to cover spots, and this is just not working as intended!!
Currently, and this changes weekly, my roster is:
QB: Kitna-bye, had picked up Warner for this week, got me -2 and injured, so I said to heck with it and got Garcia instead today. Losman was the previous QB that I'd dropped.
RB: LT, SJax (injured till week 10), Thomas Jones, Jason Wright (picked him up just to use this week), Selvin Young (picked up in response to the possible Henry suspension)
WR: Chad Johnson, Bernard Berrian, Andre Johnson (injured till week 9), and the following guys I've picked up along the way to cover spots: Patrick Crayton, Shaun McDonald.
TE: Currently Alex Smith, no good ones available, this spot rotates on a du jour basis.
K: Kris Brown
Scoring is standard yahoo, 1pt per 10 rushing/receiving, 6pts rushing/receiving TD, 1pt per 25 pass yards, 4pts for passing TD, no points for completions.
This was a particularly tough week, 4+byes and 2 long term injuries on the bench, so all able bodied guys had to start.
Only the top 4 teams make the real playoffs, all else is consolation. I think I'm poised well, if it were week 10. But I have to wade through another month of questionable stuff before then, and if I continue to lose it'll be tough to climb back up. I'd be interested in hearing any thoughts or suggestions on how to improve my team. Should I stay put, let time go bye, and let the rewards pile in? Or should I wheel and deal now, and if so, any suggestions?
Thanks for taking the time to read this post and I thank you in advance for your opinions.
Thanks Chaoyi Shih for the sig.
