Someone make me feel better for trading away VJax and Mccoy

Postby yaluoza » Fri Sep 16, 2011 6:02 am

I know I made a mistake trading away Mccoy and Vjax for AP but i did it out of gut feeling. How big of a mistake did I actually make? Its a non ppr league and we start a QB, 3wr's, 2rb's, te, flex. Thanks and WHIR if you leave a link.

I'll try to make you feel betetr here.

Peterson is more valuable than McCoy even in PPR leagues, but especially in non-PPR. So that's okay. As for V-jax... I like him, but people seem to put him in the same category as Fitz, Andre, Megatron, Roddy... when he's just not. I still think you got hosed, but if you have good receivers beyond Vjax you could be okay. Best hope for a waiver wire pickup to come through. Be theo ne in your league to discover the next Lloyd or Stevie Johnson.

It's nice of you to make him feel better, but AP < Shady in PPR no questions asked.

You're woefully thin ar WR now, and with only a marginal upgrade at RB imho. Sorry :-o

Considering it's not PPR the trade isn't that horrible, but you really shouldn't have given VJax too. Straight up McCoy for Peterson would be a good trade.

just tell yourself VJax will keep playing like week1 through out the season, S.Smith gonna rise and become next AJohnson with Newton, and Eagles will throw a lot ball and focus on Vick and DJax, therefore, McCoy won't get much points

seriously, even i don't believe what i just typed...but anything is possible.

well. u lost a good WR2, no biggie, S.Smith "might" do better than VJax....well, at least he did do better than VJax on week1...

it's not gonna kill your team.

and you never know what will happen, in one of my league snake draft, a guy picked Newton in first round, Smith on second round, everyone is speechless, and he did start Newton and got huge points.
