Post Manning/Charles... Picking up the Pieces.

Postby bradeggerton » Sat Sep 24, 2011 5:32 am

So unfortunately my 1st round pick was Jamaal Charles. And it gets worse, the draft was far back enough to where Peyton Manning was still #4 on my draft board for QBs, so I drafted him in the late 2nd round. So obviously, I am without my first two picks. Here's what I have managed to salvage (12 team non PPR league):

QB: Jay Cutler - picked him up from waivers right after the draft.
RB: Chris Johnson - Traded for him earlier in the year when I still had Charles... was looking forward to having both stud RBs...
RB: Shonn Greene - I was fine with him as a RB3... but not at 2.
RB/WR: Thomas Jones - The only consolation with Charles going down was that I was able to draft his handcuff.
WR: Kenny Britt - The best part of my team right now.
WR: Mike Williams - drafted him.
WR/TE: David Nelson - picked him up out of waivers... I'm hopeful!
TE: Scott Chandler/Greg Olsen
DEF: 49ers
K: David Akers
Bench: Roy Williams, Jacoby Ford, Javon Ringer, Brandon LaFell, Bernard Scott, Kevin Ogletree.

So basically I am trying to avoid missing the playoffs for the first time EVER in this league. I went 13-0 last season for God's sake. Can't follow up with this!

I also have a trade in the works:

I give: Jay Cutler, Chris Johnson, and Mike Williams
I get: Aaron Rodgers, DeAngelo Williams, and Greg Jennings.

My questions for you guys out there are: Do you like this trade? And what are my chances to make the playoffs (6 spots) before and after this trade?

Wow, the injuries to your team has been cruel.... Losing Manning, Charles, and Britt really hurts (and CJ's DISMAL production doesn't help things either). As for the trade I think I would go ahead and pull the trigger as I think it helps your team. I'm not in love with your team, but the fact that 6 teams make the playoffs mean you have a decent shot at making it, and anything can happen in the playoffs.

Help me out?

wow this is really NOT your year. Not sure you can recover from all those. Best chance you have is to hit the waiver every week and hope to hind a gem.
