I've been sending out feelers for a while offering my QB depth for RB help. Of course, someone waits until the last minute to send me an offer ... probably prompted by the fact that his starter (Orton) is hurt, and there really isn't squat on the WW in such a deep league. I've been having awful luck with RBs this year (already lost Washington and FWP from my draftees, FA pickup LJ to stupidity, Portis/Brown to lingering injuries, and Forte just generally underperforms). It doesn't help that in this league all FAs go to waivers starting Sunday @ noon until Wed - and there always seems to be a guy one spot ahead of me picking up that weeks prime claims. Anyway, my team is below. 14-team Yahoo redraft, pretty standard scoring, starting positions of QB, 3 WRs, 2 RBs, TE, K, DEF.
QB: Big Ben, Favre
WR: Wayne, Ochocinco, Hicks, Bowe
RB: Forte, Portis, Maroney, Snelling, Brown
WR: Moss, V Jackson, MSW, Garcon
RB: Benson, Slaton, Carnell Williams, Charles, Forsett, Betts
DEF: Packers, Bengals
I'm 5-5, and heading in the wrong direction. It might be time to sacrifice depth (like having 2 top 10 QBs) for a position I need help in. Favre is good, but we only start 1 QB - it might even be a bit of a blessing not to have to play the "pick the right QB" game. At RB, Forte is the only guy I even know will be starting 2 weeks from now (barring injury). If I did the trade, I'd have Forte and Betts/Portis as sure-starters - with at least Maroney and Charles on the bench if even another injury popped up. I'd probably drop Brown (just doesn't seem like he'll ever be a dependable play this year) or Bowe (though I'm prefer to hold on to him in case I'm still playing in weeks 15 and 16 - in such a deep league, there's really nothing on the WW and I know someone else will claim him).
What do you think? Accept, reject, or counter-offer (though there are only a few hours left)? Leave a link and I'll answer yours.
