12 team non-ppr. I'm 1-3 and 10th out of 12. I need a win this week!
I have 4 tradable WR (Manningham, MoMass, Garcon, and A. Gonzalez) with the ability to trade for Wes Welker. I am in desperate need of 1-2 RBs this week as all of mine except Kevin Smith (who plays Pit) are on BYEs. Biggest question is which WRs do I trade?
RB1: Forte (BYE Week 5)
RB2: K. Smith
FLEX: LT (BYE Week 5)
WR1: R. Moss (BYE Week 8)
WR2: Ochocinco (BYE Week 8)
DEF: NYJ (& GB)
Bench: Manningham, Garcon, A. Gonzalez, MoMass, R. Bush (BYE Week 5), Hasselbeck
Trade Manningham/Garcon/A.Gonzalez or MoMass for Wes Welker (the owner of Welker said he would do this)
Trade Wes Welker & Reggie Bush for Julius Jones & Derrick Ward (He has Pierre Thomas)
Trade Garcon/MoMass for Welker and keep him as trade bait
Trade A. Gonzalez, Manningham or MoMass & Reggie Bush for Ricky Williams & Derrick Ward (He has Pierre Thomas)
Manningham/Garcon/A.Gonzalez or MoMass for Glen Coffee and Celek to cover my Bye weeks (who do I drop?)
Here are my questions:
1. Is Julius Jones that much better than Ricky? Pro: JJ has a great rushing schedule and no one to take carries away. Con: OL is a mess and Seneca is still QB. Ricky - Pro: Henne is QB and they are going to run...A LOT, Con: Prob going to avg. 8-10 points each week and is in 60/40 split with R. Brown
2. Would you rather have Derrick Ward or Reggie Bush in a non-ppr league.
3. Of my 4-5 WRs, which do I trade and which do I keep? How do you rank them? Do I keep Garcon AND A. Gonz so I know for SURE that I have the #2 WR in Indy or do I gamble and trade away Garcon or A. Gonz and spread my risk level? Who goes next if I want Coffee & Celek? Trade away both Colts #2s? MoMass?
a. Manningham - Always seems like he's going to drop a pass. Smith is the #1. Nicks getting more involved. Hixon coming back soon. Strong RB offense. Eli questionable with foot.
b. Garcon - #2 WR in Indy. Peyton is on fire. But he's competing with Collie, Wayne and Clark for looks...and who knows what happens if/when A.Gonz gets back
c. A. Gonzalez - Supposedly comng back in Week 8, but I'm thinking it's going to be week 10 before he feels comfortable enough with his knee. But Manning loves him. He'll prob take over #2 spot and move Garcon to slot, right?
d. MoMass - New to the game and we may have seen his best. He may be the one being double covered and Stuckey may emerge. But he's got good chemistry with a QB that CAN throw the ball in an offense that will NEED to throw the ball
e. Welker - I can trade for and keep him, but I have Moss and they have same BYE week. And I don't trust his knee for one second. The advantage to getting Welker is to trade him to get Jones... but is Jones THAT valuable to me?
4. I think I move forward and try to get Jones/Williams and Ward... should I still try to trade a WR to get Coffee for this week (against ATL), Celek for Witten's BYE and then move Celek in week 8?
Thanks. WHIR!!! I PROMISE!!!
