Roddy White, Reggie Wayne, Wallace, Ochocinco - Odd Man Out?

Postby esper » Wed Aug 24, 2011 12:24 am

Had some technical difficulties during my draft tonight and ended up drafting a 4th WR when I was hoping for a RB. Not to mention I also accidentally drafted Ryan & Bradford in a row, but that's for another day...

I've always liked playing a RB in the FLEX spot, so I'm hoping to move one of my WR's for a RB, straight up. Which brings me to my question: who is the worst out of the four I mentioned? What RB would you try to target for that said player? Any input would be appreciated. Leave a link and I'll help you too! Roster is below.

Yahoo! 10 Team Head-To-Head PPR
QB - Matt Ryan (Atl - QB)
WR - Roddy White (Atl - WR)
WR - Reggie Wayne (Ind - WR)
WR - Mike Wallace (Pit - WR)
RB - LeSean McCoy (Phi - RB)
RB - Mark Ingram (NO - RB)
TE - Brandon Pettigrew (Det - TE)
W/R - Chad Ochocinco - (NE - WR)
BN - Sam Bradford (StL - QB)
BN - Fred Jackson (Buf - RB)
BN - Beanie Wells (Ari - RB)
BN - Mike Thomas (Jac - WR)
BN - Lance Moore (NO - WR)

or, do I keep a WR in my FLEX spot since it's PPR?

Chad is by far the worst option you have. Both Beanie and Fred are better options as a flex. Chad holds little trade value for a quality RB though. You may be able to package him and Fred or Beanie to upgrade at RB.

I like the idea of packaging Chad and Beanie to upgrade at RB. Both of these guys are pretty big names and are getting some hype this preseason. In a PPR, try targeting someone like Ahmad Bradshaw with that duo. Good luck.

You definitely should be able to package Ocho and Jackson for a RB, possibly for Forte?

You could try and package Ocho & Jackson for Steven Jackson too. Or maybe Bradshaw, Blount or Best, in case you are high on any of them.

Any advice on mine?

Ocho is by far the worst, he has little trade value now, but HUGE potential upside if he can get it together.

That being said, I'd probably try and trade Wayne for a great RB, maybe Bradshaw, or perhaps package Wayne and Fred Jackson for Felix Jones and a lesser WR, because you'll get the highest return at this point. And if Ocho-Stanko reverts to good ol' Chad 85, well then you've struck gold.
