I made a dumb trade mistake

Postby markscott273 » Mon Oct 17, 2011 1:57 pm

But i'm hoping I can keep wheeling and dealing to make my team better.

Here's my current roster:

QB: Philip Rivers, Matt Ryan
RB: Ray Rice, Daniel Thomas, Mark Ingram, Delone Carter
WR: Desean Jackson, Dez Bryant, Percy Harvin, David Nelson, Marques Colston, Greg Little
TE: Jimmy Graham. Fred Davis
K: David Akers
D/ST: Bills

so I put in a trade to get Willis McGahee and give up Colston, Harvin, and Ingram. My logic was pretty clear when i put in the trade, but I forgot about it until the owner accepted it. Ouch. And to make things worse, I dropped the Eagles D/ST and picked up the Bills. Bad move too.

I'm going to try to trade for a more reliable WR.

Feel free to to tell me how horrible my thinking was

I know, huh. oh well. It really doesn't matter in my league now...Heading into the week I was in 5th place out of 12 with a record of 2-3. After my loss this week I'll be in 10th place.

shocking how the commish didnt kill that deal but tough break you gave up alot of depth your starters seem solid if you make it to the playoffs.

The commish said he's going to let me suffer. My logic was that I was only going to start colston, harvin or ingram as a flex only. And I felt like I had too many saints on my team. I'm going to start McGahee every week (I hope) who's been pretty consistent, so I hope it pays off. Harvin has been on my bench since week 2 and I've only played Ingram once. And Colston was my flex this week.

Lol forget the other two harvin and ingram they havent done anything this year. Colston is a good wideout to have he produced well yesterday. Willis has moreno stealing hes carries and tebow stealing hes goal line tds atleast you admit ur mistake.

Not a helpful contribution, just a comment -

It is good the commish didn't kill it. Bad trades are a thing that happens. You were trying to make your team better tho and a commish killing the deal would be some weak shit.

Good luck.
