Part with Felix, Hightower or Tate? (WHIR)

Postby toobitter » Thu Sep 29, 2011 12:39 am

10 team league with tons of offense, we start 2 qb, 2 rb, 3 wr, 2 flex, 2 te
trying to figure out a way to get a better wide.

i've got mccoy and forte in my RB slots. i've got 2 flex spots that i've rotated felix, hightower and ben tate.
one of these guys is probably expendable. the question is which one and what kind of value i can get for them.

here's my roster
qb - brees, romo (campbell)
rb - mccoy, forte, hightower, tate (felix, woodhead, helu)
wr - lloyd, m. thomas, rice (ochocinco, ford, burleson)
te - graham, pettigrew
k - crosby
def - bears

guys i was thinking about targeting are santana moss, santonio holmes or maybe some underachievers like desean or boldin. what do you think?

Id agree completely. Taking a strength and building a weakness. Tate would be high value to someone who doesnt know what they are doing. Even Hightower is at a decent value. Helu seems to be getting more and more every week. Might be a good time to fold on him.

Your weakness is definatly at the WR spot

try and sell tate to the same person who owns arian foster if you can. as far as the WR's you listed, I'd rank them DeSean > Moss > Holmes > Boldin

You should trade off Hightower because he has values but Helu is coming from behind. You won't get much anything for Tate because Foster is coming back. See if you can get Holmes for Hightower if they need a RB. I got Hightower too and I am trying to get rid of him while I can. And don't send off Felix unless you can get a lot for him, he is a great flex. Build up on your WR I don't trust any of them.

sadly the guy who has foster has a team in shambles.

he only has 4 wides for 3 starting slots.
roddy, burress, washington and sims walker

only guy who'd be worth pursuing is probably roddy and i doubt he'd part with him in a deal for tate.

i guess i could offer up something like

roddy
for
lloyd and tate

I would try to nab S Moss out of those and offer with Tate or Hightower. Like the above poster said, I would hang onto Felix unless you can get a better WR for him. If you can package to grab Roddy, DO IT!
