I'm trying to swing a major deal for a top-level WR. But plan B is upgrading my TE. One guy has Owen Daniels and Aaron Hernandez. But he could use help at RB. He has AP, but after that he has an injured Blount and some guys that you don't want to have to start (Pierre Thomas, Grant, Helu, Slaton). My team is:
QB: Brees, Flacco
RB: Foster, SJax, Best, McGahee, Jacobs
WR: Holmes, Harvin, Branch, Lance Moore, Mike Thomas
TE: Cook, Davis
We start: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, R/W, TE, K, DEF, D
McGahee for either guy is perfectly fair, isn't it? The other guy can't play a TE in the flex. And his own regular starting flex guy is pretty weak as is - either Grant/Thomas as a RB, or Nelson/Royal as a WR. And since I wouldn't keep 3 TEs, I suppose I could throw in one of my current TEs so he knows the bye is covered.
Just curious. Seemed a no-brainer (even more so for him) ... but he's been ignoring my messages. But I don't want to officially send the trade out, since I'm also dangling SJax or Best for a WR. Losing 2 starting RBs would gimp me at the position.
BTW, just got a Ben Watson for SJax offer. No, I don't need anyone to tell me that's awful
I know SJax could be viewed as a "buy low" and Watson has had some decent games ... but seriously?!?
