Drop Hightower and pick up WHO??

Postby wintermath » Tue Oct 04, 2011 1:47 pm

Torrian is available to pick up, but will Helu eventually be the main guy? The rat likes to change it up!

Also available as of right now-

S Ridley
D Sproles
(I could also pick up my handcuff M.Bush (Oak))

Any Ideas?

I disagree

given is RB core I would definitely pick up sproles for hightower,

Sproles has way more upside and is already producing quality numbers. Hightower meanwhile just lost his starting job to Torain which isn't great considering the notion that a lot of people were expecting him to start Until Helu took over later in the season.

Sproles is definitely the more attractive flex than hightower atm

Hard to argue against Sproles right now... I say ride him until he gives out!

That's not what I was saying. I meant drop someone else for sproles.

So is there a WR on my team you would drop for Sproles?

Like Harvin?

I agree with my RBs McFadden, Gore and Blount (and I can only start two per week) I can take a chance and stash someone for a bye week/ later in the season.

Crazy that Sproles isn't taken (even in my own 8-team league he's long gone). Get him ... drop Hightower. Obviously this is a shallow league, and I don't see the value of Hightower there.

Help in return? viewtopic.php?f=18&t=501688

Yes friend. Do that switch. Here's what I'd do. You are using your extra TE as a bye week filler. Here's an outside the box idea: Dump Hightower for Torain and your extra TE for Sproles. Both your TEs have comparable value and in an 8 team leageu I don't carry 2 TEs ever.
