Roy Helu for Titus Young or Greg Little? WHIR 100%

Postby ATLbraves » Fri Oct 14, 2011 5:15 pm

12 team h2h .5 PPR keeper league

My Roy Helu for his Titus Young or Greg Little

Roy Helu can be kept in the 10th, Titus Young can be kept in the 13th, Greg Little can be kept in the 12th.


I need a WR for Week 8 since I have so many players on a bye week, would either of these be a good trade for me? It seems like Titus is starting to take over Burleson's role and will slowly phase him out as the season goes on. And Greg Little will now be starting opposite of Massaquoi. So he will be getting a lot more targets.

Young is behind Megatron and Burls. Helu behind Hightower and Torain. I would still stick with Helu. I think overall, he's guaranteed to get more touches than Young, simply because he'll be playing in more plays. Stafford goes Megatron, Megatron, Megatron, Burls, Pettigrew, Best and then MAYBE Young in his checkdown.

Thanks for the help with mine.

I don't like it. I feel like Young could take over for Burleson by the end of the season as well, but even then, like the last poster said, he's got 3 weapons prioritized ahead of him. Helu, especially in a keeper league, is worth more. He is talented, and may see more and more touches as the year progresses. Basically, you shouldn't be starting either anytime soon, Helu is more valuable, and you're just going to have to find a week 8 WR elsewhere. Perhaps the waiver wire?

The problem is with my roster, I have so many people on a bye in Week 8 that I have to make some kind of move.

Starting Roster:
QB - Matt Ryan Week 8 Bye
WR - Roddy White Week 8 Bye
WR - Greg Jennings Week 8 Bye
WR - Mike Williams (TB) Week 8 Bye
RB - Steven Jackson
RB - Daniel Thomas
TE - Jason Witten
WR/RB/TE - Miles Austin

Bench:
Knowshon Moreno
(Den - RB)
DeAngelo Williams
(Car - RB)
Montario Hardesty
(Cle - RB)
Roy Helu
(Was - RB)
LeGarrette Blount Week 8 Bye
(TB - RB)


So I'm likely going to have to drop Hardesty, Helu, and/or Knowshon for 2 WR's and a QB unless I can make some kind of trade before then.

I would try something else. As noted, Young is buried on that team. Helu has more upside. Find other WR options to trade for.

Thanks for the advice on mine. I would first try to package Moreno/Hardesty or Helu in a 2-for-1 deal to get a decent WR and use the extra spot to pick up a waiver wire WR. That way you can get rid of a couple RBs while at the same time getting some value for them.

I would also look for a team that needs depth at RB so u could possibly land a better deal for your guys.

I thought Helu was in line to take the job from Hightower. Clearly that wasnt the case. Hes the #3 back no matter on that team.

With that said, IM from detroit and know this team well. Young, while talented, will struggle to get consistent looks because there are too many weapons. There are no #2 WR's on that team whether you believe it or not. There is Megatron and then everyuone else and everyone else includes Best, Pettigrew, Sheffler, Burleson, and Young.

At the end of the day, i stick with Helu i guess.
