Tough Spot with BYE's and injuries- WHIR 100%

Postby TugzMcBoat » Wed Oct 05, 2011 2:14 pm

In a Tough spot. Through a series of Trades, the magical world of how the WW turned out this week, and injuries, I'm at a loss with my starting lineup. Who would you drop? who would you trade? who would you start (wrong forum, but it applies here)?

QB: Ryan Fitzpatrick
RB: Frank Gore
RB: Jonathan Stewart
WR: Nate Washington
WR: Jeremy Maclin
TE: Owen Daniels
W/R: *empty*

Bench: Flacco (BYE) Rice (BYE) Daniel Thomas (BYE) Ryan Torain (BYE) Miles Austin (BYE) Rashard Mendenhall (Injured) Aaron Hernandez

If Hernandez is listed as probable this week then I'll drop or trade Daniels

Mendenhall is on the do not drop list, otherwise I'd drop him for Redman- I might be able to trade him but I'm not getting anything better than Redman, not too mention this a super buy low for someone else in case PITT gets their shit together second half of the season

I could drop Ryan Torain as I'm probably not gonna get any trade value from him now, but I'm hoping he has another solid week or 2 and then I could sell high on him. definitely won't be available if I drop him

Drop Joe flacco? I'm leaning towards this. for some stupid reason everyone has a backup in this league and 2 teams have 3, best FA available is Tavaris Jackson and Andy Dalton. I'm not entirely sold on Fitzpatrick yet, and it's gonna really suck if he starts playing bad and my other option is Dalton.

where would you guys start? if people suggest trades I'll post rosters for potential Trade'ees.

Ridley is a nice pickup off the bench, but I'm not too sure who you would drop for him unless you opted for Torain. That would be a bit risky.

In terms of a starting move, I would try to sell Gore high and look to upgrade your WR corps.

Good luck dude.

I would definitely drop Daniels with Hernandez on my bench. I'm not holding onto 2 TE in this league

*EDIT* 2 healthy TE that is...

If Hernandez is healthy this week, I would maybe try trading Daniels for something you're missing if someone has a weak TE. Otherwise I would MAYBE drop Torain for Ridley or Garcon (I see him picking up more), but it's such a tough call, I wouldn't really know. Or if you can't trade a TE, drop one for one of those two, so long as Hernandez is healthy.

U cannot drop mendy he will pick it up again especially for the guys backup who WILL only play one game! also do not drop flacco or Daniels...u have to shop around the league to get something u need..i would honestly offer flacco and daniels for a 2nd tier wr, someone who needs a qb or TE should bite..Daniels is a top 10 TE!

If Hernandez is healthy that is what I'll definitely do...

but lets go on the assumption that He's not starting this week, what's our move?

I would just keep what you have. Your team is pretty stacked, and the worst player is probably Nate Washington, who you can't drop because you don't have another healthy receiver on your bench.

If you absolutely have to make a move, I would TRADE Daniels because his value if through the roof now that Andre Johnson is out for a few weeks.

sure that's obvious...but what if Hernandez doesn't play this week? then we're really in a pickle aren't we. I haven't heard any reports of him playing this week (of course haven't heard anything about him not playing either...)

You have a very nice team. Only issue is you have a lot of players on bye. You have no need for torain at all. So drop him and pick up redman for this week. Don't drop Daniels. He will shine with AJ out.
