Bye week/Injury WR problems-HELP!!!

Postby eromano33 » Wed Oct 05, 2011 12:37 am

I made a few trades to bolster my team and also lost some key guys to injuries, so I am right now pretty shallow at WR. This is my current roster. I have a pending trade to get rid of Schaub for Marshall, so we'll see if that goes through and that would help greatly. But in the meantime this is what i'm dealing with.
My roster right now for this week is going to be:
QB: Newton vs. NO
RB: AP vs. ARI
RB: Fred Jackson vs. PHI
WR: Fitzgerald vs. MIN
WR: Julio Jones vs. GB
WR : Johnny Knox vs. DET
TE: Jimmy Graham vs. CAR
K: Janikowski vs. HOU
DEF: Lions vs. CHI
BN: Dez vs. BYE
BN: Andre vs. INJURED
BN: Romo vs. BYE
BN: Schaub vs. OAK
BN: Beanie vs. MIN
BN: James Starks vs. ATL
Obviously I'm not happy with my WR3 this week. For depth issues, here's some possible changes I can make.
I was offered a 2 for 1 for dez:
I give:
dez
I get:
Manningham
Mike Williams (tampa)
or I can simply drop Knox or Starks for one of these WR's on TB who may have a better week this week:
Denarious Moore, Michael Crabtree, Pierre Garcon, Mike Thomas, Nate Burleson, Antonio Brown, Devery Henderson. These guys all seem like scrubs to me, so IDK. Let me know what you would do

Dont do the Dez trade, you aren't getting enough in return.

I would drop Knox for Denerius Moore, Burleson, or Crabtree. In that order.



help with mine please:

how many teams are in this league?

you are seriously stacked, like even in an 8 team league you're powerhouse, and I've seen worse rosters in 6 team leagues.....


I honestly dunno without seeing the team your trying to trade for. I'd hold on trading bryant- the only situation that makes sense in trading dez for those two would be if you were shallow at WR but your not.... your Loooooooooaaaaaaaaaded (insert goat noise when you read that), if you really don't like your WR3 then Idk what to tell you, drop him and pickup Crabtree?

but in a few weeks you'll have starting at WR Fitzgerald, Andre Johnson and Dez bryant with knox and Jones as backups, that's sick depth. and you don't even need to trade them because you have AP and fred jackson at RB with beanie wells and starks as your backups

if you're in a 10 man league I officially declare you league champion and everyone should just give you their money now...if its less than that I still wouldn't make any trades outside of trading to the team that owns Rodgers or Brady....and that's about it
10 team standard- passing TD's = 6pts
QB: Stafford
RB: R. Matthews, A. Bradshaw, I. Redmann, B. Tate, CJ Spiller,
WR: G. Jennings, A. Johnson, E. Decker, T. Smith, K. Britt, M. Crabtree
TE: J. Tamme
DEF: Philly
start 1QB 2RB 3WR 1TE 1DEF 1K

You could use one more RB and WR then you really would be loaded.

Try offering:
BN: Schaub vs. OAK
BN: Beanie vs. MIN
for
Calvin Johnson and a lesser RB with upside maybe buy low on Mendenhall?
Such a package exist?
YOu don't need 3 QBs.

I believe pretty much anyone could be had for the right price

I'd drop Knox for Moore and then just ride your team out. It isn't going to get much better.
