Just did 2 trades, did I butcher my team?

Postby Jason497 » Tue Sep 06, 2011 10:46 pm

20 team league, scores 1/10 run and rec yards, 6/TD, 1/15 return yards, NON-PPR

Keeps 4 players and starts 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1FLEX, 1TE, 1K, 3DL, 3LB, 3DB


I gave up Ahmad Bradshaw/Bernard Scott/Will Witherspoon

I got Felix Jones/AJ Hawk/someone off waivers eventually.

Since Bernard Scott lost his KR job to Brandon Tate he was basically just a stash player at that point. Im high as hell on Felix Jones, I think he can be this year's Darren Mcfadden, plus I upgraded at LB. There's also a few guys I like on waivers still I can add with that last spot.

Also I am kind of down on Bradshaw, I think Jacobs re-emerges and makes it a more even split, plus Eli is struggling and I think Bradshaw's numbers come back down to Earth.

Another trade I did

I gave up Tim Hightower, Roddy White, Nate Washington

I got Lesean Mccoy, Stevie Johnson, Anthony Armstrong


RBs are gold in this league. I don't trust Shanahan one damn bit with Hightower, plus he is only on a 1 year deal so I could easily see them go in a different direction in the offseason there, when was the last time Shanahan had the same starter 2 years in a row?

Mccoy is being drafted as a top 10 RB right now and he gives me stability at RB. Having him and Felix Jones means I don't have to worry about going into the draft next year with only 1 RB and having to reach like crazy for guys there (I drafted Hightower over Reggie Wayne for crying out loud). I still got Phillip Rivers and Harvin/S.Johnson who could be my other 2 keepers. Not crazy about Armstrong though, I might cut him for someone or just hold on to him and see if he does something.

My roster

QB: Phillip Rivers, Chad Henne
RB: Lesean Mccoy, Felix Jones, Larod Stephens-Howling (KR/3rd down back), Lorenzo Booker (KR/Possible 3rd down back), Isaac Redman, ??? TBD
WR: Percy Harvin, Stevie Johnson, Lee Evans, Brian Hartline, Anthony Armstrong or TBD
TE: Rob Gronkowski, Dustin Keller
K: Stephen Gostkowski
DL: Darnell Dockett, Andre Carter, Matt Roth
LB: Demarcus Ware, Rey Maualuga, AJ Hawk
DB: Ed Reed, Nick Collins, Malcolm Jenkins

Players Im looking at replacing Scott/Armstrong with are Donald Jones BUF WR2, Raheem Brock SEA to improve my sketchy DLs (had 9 sacks last year), and Dion Lewis (Eagles KR).

I think you did a great job in those trades. Especially since it's a keeper league and you will have 2 very good RB's going forward. And good job flipping Tim Hightower while you still had a chance, cause Shanahan can change RB's at any moment.

I'm not a big fan of Anthony Armstrong though, he did have a pretty good season last year. I just wouldn't expect the same numbers this year, be prepared to find someone on the WW or FA. Possibly take a chance and drop Armstrong for Randy Moss.

I didn't even think to go that route. Randy Moss got scooped up but Terrell Owens is still there.
