Trade that could net me 1.01 (WHIR)

Postby Achmed » Tue Aug 09, 2011 12:08 am

I've posted enough times that I think everyone knows my situation. But here goes again:

We start 2RB, 2WR, 1TE and 1 Flex. Keep six. Planning on keeping Rodgers, Charles, CJ2K, MJD, Fitzgerald and Jennings. Also have Wallace as a "bonus" keeper for this year only. But that leaves me cutting VJax and Finley.

The team with 1.01 is looking for a WR1 and is willing to trade down. If I can pull a VJax for 1.01 (maybe give up my 1.11 to close the deal), am I most prudent to turn around and pick up Finley again. Or use it on an incoming player. Players with 2 years experience or less (like Wallace) are "bonus" keepers. So using the pick on a rookie gives me an extra keeper for three years.

FIRST: Should VJax alone get me a 1.01? Or do I have to include my 1.11?

SECOND: Grab Finley, or go with a rookie?

For the record, I've finished 2nd twice in a row. So actually winning the thing would be kind of nice.
12-team PPR, start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1 flex (RB/WR/TE), 1D/ST
Unlimited keepers, but more than 6 cost draft picks, starting w 1st Rnd

Keepers- Rodgers, RJennings, Fitzgerald, Hilton, Pitta
and one of Wallce or CJ1K

My 2 cents: I would keep VJax over Jennings. But I would trade either for the 1.01 or 1.02 and I would grab Mark Ingram/Daniel Thomas. The rookie is a no-brainer since they become "bonus' keepers. A strong RB3 gives your squad a nice fallback option with MJD knee worries and Charles' schedule down the stretch.
