Hi guys, I'm in a 12 team PPR Salary cap Dynasty League and am kinda stuck as to what to do. Here's my roster...
QB - Brees, Orton RB - MJD, Slaton, Rice, Hightower WR - AJ, Bowe, White, Royal, DeSean Jackson, Hixon TE - Gonzalez, Carlson K - Hartley DEF - PIT ST - DET
Right now I have 17 players on my roster with a roster limit of 19. I currently have 4 - 1st round picks in the upcoming rookie draft. I plan to drop Hixon if I don't trade him giving me room for 3 of those picks. Right now I plan to pick Moreno, Wells, McCoy and if I had room for the 4th maybe Pettigrew as I have picks 1, 2, 3 & 8. Question is, am I better off just trading the 8 away for a pick next year or do I try to consolidate a couple spots to free up the room for that 4th pick. I should be fine on salary cap. I really like my team overall and do think I'm in a sweet spot but I'm just not sure what the best way to go is. I have an offer on the table for the #3 pick for a teams 1st and 2nd round picks next year also, but then I lost my shot at McCoy who I think is going to be a stud. My gut is telling me to just dump Hixon and the 8 for a pick next year but I'd like to know what you guys think. Thanks in advance, WHIR.
I would definitely consider picking Donald Brown ahead of McCoy. The guy lit it up in college and the Colts have a history of successful 1st round picks when it comes to offensive players. Brown will compete for carries with Addai the same way the McCoy will compete for carries with Westbrook, and IMO Brown as a 1st rounder will probably get more touches. Other than that you are definitely looking at a solid situation with all those 1st round picks and a deep team to begin with
Drop Hixon and Hightower. Take Moreno and Brown for sure, and I would consider Crabtree if he's there, Pettigrew and Maclin or McCoy. Philly will be passs happy so Maclin in the slot could be solid, in PPR, if he beats out Kevin Curtis. McCoy is going to take over for Westy this or next year, or 2 years at the latest. You can't go wrong with Young RBs, one is bound to pan out.
