Pick up WR now or wait and pursue trade? WHIR

Postby 2b-or-not-2b » Fri Sep 16, 2011 11:17 pm

I'm in a 12 team auction league – “standard” scoring (QB gets 4 points for TD pass). No points for return yardage only return scores. My roster is at the very bottom of this email.

I was thin at WR so I picked up Amendola before the end of week 1. So far that's not working out so good. He appears to be making a quick recovery but not a done deal by any stretch. The free agent pickings are a bit slim at WR but there is some value there. I'm wondering if I should pick up another WR and drop a RB (probably CJ Spiller) now?

What do you guys think about CJ Spiller? How durable is Fred Jackson?

If my running backs continue to perform as they did in week 1, I should be able to trade for a pretty good WR in the next few weeks but will have to give up a solid RB to get a WR of value in return.

If I can pick up a decent WR and give up Spiller that would certainly be less costly and the trade option would still be in play if my backup RBs continue to do well.

There are 2 lists below of WR free agent options. Top WR options based on week 1 targets then by receptions.

Who looks good in the two lists below? Your feedback and thoughts are most appreciated!!

Free Agent WRs with 6 or more targets in week 1 in descending order:
Jerome Simpson, Cin WR
Antonio Brown, Pit WR
Jabar Gaffney, Wsh WR
Jason Avant, Phi WR
Davone Bess, Mia WR
Brian Hartline, Mia WR
Darrius Heyward-Bey, Oak WR
Mohamed Massaquoi, Cle WR
Arrelious Benn, TB WR
Ben Obomanu, Sea WR
Eddie Royal, Den WR
Anthony Armstrong, Wsh WR
David Nelson, Buf WR
Preston Parker, TB WR
Doug Baldwin, Sea WR

Free Agent WRs with 3 or more receptions in decending order:
Davone Bess, Mia WR
Jason Hill, Jac WR
Jerome Simpson, Cin WR
Brian Hartline, Mia WR
Darrius Heyward-Bey, Oak
Brandon LaFell, Car WR
Arrelious Benn, TB WR
David Nelson, Buf WR
Preston Parker, TB WR
Doug Baldwin, Sea WR
Jabar Gaffney, Wsh WR
Michael Jenkins, Min WR
Jason Avant, Phi WR
Jacoby Jones, Hou WR
Early Doucet, Ari WR
Brandon Gibson, StL WR
Mohamed Massaquoi, Cle WR
Eric Decker, Den WR

My current roster is:
Matthew Stafford, Det QB
Peyton Hillis, Cle RB
Jahvid Best, Det RB
Cedric Benson, Cin RB
Vincent Jackson, SD WR
DeSean Jackson, Phi WR
Dallas Clark, Ind TE
Peyton Manning, Ind QB (dropped)
Chad Henne, Mia QB (added)

At this point I would drop amendola for anyone. Use it as a plug week to week if need be. Since you already own henne, look at bess or hartline. I would pick bess.

I think you drop Spiller and p/u either Jacoby Jones or Gaffney. Jones has more upside (better qb) and Gaffney maybe more consistant. If neither wr works out, then you can try trading one of your rb's.

FJackson has had some injuries in the past, but what rb hasn't? I wouldn't consider him injury-prone.
