I put up a notice that Favre and/or any of my WRs were up for sale, and I was looking to improve at RB and/or TE. One guy contacts me with interest in Ocho. What do you think would be a reasonable place to start? This is a 14-team Yahoo H2H league - pretty standard scoring. We start: QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, TE, K, DEF.
QB: Big Ben, Favre
RB: Forte, Parker, Washington, Donald Brown, Coffee
WR: Wayne, Bowe, Ochocinco, Steve Smith (NYG), Burleson
QB: Brady, Anderson
RB: Gore, Rice, Julius Jones, Jamal Lewis
WR: TJ Houss, Breaston, Crayton, Knox, Stuckey
TE: Tony Gonzalez
K: Kaeding, Hauschka
As you can see, I don't have a dependable starter past Forte. Though it's a 14-team league, and everyone's hurting in some fashion. Lewis or Jones wouldn't be enough - that would just be adding more questionable guys. Rice ... eh, he would certainly become my RB2. But Ocho's been good, and Rice gets all his TDs stolen by McGahee. My gut tells me Ocho is worth more than Rice. With Coffee already on board, I'd welcome Gore with open arms. But despite Gore's injury, offering Ocho for Gore sounds like a low-ball ... doesn't it? I don't want to come across as sounding insulting.
What do you think? Start off with any of the straight-up offers (Ocho-Gore, Ocho-Rice)? Sweeten up the Ocho-Rice offer with more value from him, adding Olsen-Gonzalez or Buffalo-Baltimore? Sweeten up the Ocho-Gore offer with more value from me, like adding Favre-Anderson, Washington or Brown (with him dropping Stuckey or his backup kicker, which he won't need anymore by the time the trade goes through), or maybe both of those? Maybe there's something else.
Leave a link and I'll answer yours!
