need a RB upgrade?

Postby crimsontide13 » Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:04 pm

I feel like I need a RB upgrade, below is my roster. Thinking of offering E. Manning plus RB/WR for Gore plus TE. I feel like he could take a hit to RB to pick up a better QB plus a solid RB/WR. 12 team PPR league. Any other advice on my roster is greatly appreciated, Im a bit of a noob.

My roster His roster

QB - Matt Schaub Sam Bradford
WR - Andre Johnson Larry Fitzgerald
WR - Vincet Jackson Stevie Johnson
RB - LeSean McCoy Frank Gore
RB - D. Williams L. Blount
TE - Dallas Clark Aaron Hernandez
WR/RB/T - Ryan Matthews Plaxico Buress
K - Neil Rackers S. Gotkowski
D - New Orleans Philly

Eli Manning R. Mendenhall
AJ Green J. Witten
Lance Moore Jonathan Stewart
Ronnie Brown Jerome Harrison
Brandon Pettigrew Jacoby Ford
Arizona D Greg Little
Marion Barber Denarius Moore

Not a bad thought, but best to strike while he may still be worried about Bradfords hand. No nerve damage apparently, but he'd likely want to get some insurance either way. You'll have to package a starter with Eli though, obviously.
16 Team .5 PPR
QB-Josh Freeman(Andy Dalton)
RB/WR-Rashard Mendenhall(Shonn Greene)
RB/WR-Ben Tate(Deji Karim)
RB/WR-Stephen Jackson

TE-Dustin Keller(Tony Scheffler)
DEF-Atlanta Falcons

I think that it is a good idea, jump on him now. ST Louis lost SJax for most likely a week or two and Amendola for a longer stretch, so that will most likely hurt his production. All of his rb's had bad first weeks, so I'd look to grab any one of them that you can witout giving up too much. The only thing is trying to get either Witten or Hernandez thrown in also could be a bit of a stretch. Good luck.
