Need Help With A Possible Replacement for A. Gates this week

Postby Lucas Graham » Fri Sep 23, 2011 4:29 pm

So its possible that Antonio Gates may not play this week. I want to pick up a FA TE in case I need to bench him...I dont have any other TE on my team (my league only starts 1 TE), and my problem is that Im not in a very deep league (PPR, 10 team) and I have a really good roster. I'm afraid that if I drop a player for another TE, someones gonna pick up my guy....below is my roster

Brees
Cam Newton
Mike Wallace
Mike Williams tb
Steve Smith car
Mario Manningham
Arian Foster
Cedric Benson
Darren Sproles
Gates

we have 1 RB spot, and 1 Flex...so as of now Im starting Sproles at flex since Foster prob wont play...the only guy I can think to drop is Manningham b/c he's out this week. But Im afraid if I drop him to pick up a backup TE for this week, someone will snatch Mario up....

what do I do? I cant have an empty spot at TE....

Is this your entire time excluding your single kicker and single defense you have?

stay with gates and just take a 0 if he doesn't play. and get to work on trading some of your depth to upgrade at TE ... either with a great backup, or maybe to get j. finley.

well the problem is that nobody else has a 2nd TE either...we all have 1 TE on our team...so that leaves me with the option to drop a player and pick up a FA or trade...and I dont wanna trade

Chance Manningham. In a shallow league he can be replaced.

This. I would not just take a zero. Could cost you the game and eventually a chance to get into the playoffs.

Well, our league only starts 1 QB, so any backup is essentially useless until your starting QB's bye week....with that being said, should I maybe drop Cam Newton this evening and pick up a TE, and then pick him back up if he's still available?

What WRs and QBs are on the waiver? I do not like dropping Newton if you do not have a viable option to replace him with. Manningham is probally the easiest to replace as already mentioned.

Good luck.
