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
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?
