Need QB (Vick bye week) WHIR

Postby Baldrick » Tue Oct 18, 2011 12:47 am

Title says it all...with Vick on a bye week I have no back-up QB. I had Garrard, but the Jags foolishly cut him.

Waiver wire will not help as the only prospect is Boller in Oakland. And after being deemed to "team to beat" several people on here and by many in my league, I went 2-1, and have since gone 1-2 due to injuries (Andre Johnson), and opponents having lucky weeks. This past week my best WR was Meachem (Pettis and some other 3rd stringer filled in).

At any rate I'm looking to trade for either Freeman or Ryan. I figure this particular team will be the best to deal with as they have Eli, Ryan and Freeman.

Right now I'm thinking of starting with this offer:

Give: 2nd round pick, Doug Baldwin & Michael Bush
Get: 3rd round pick, Josh Freeman

Fortunately at 3-3 I'm only a game back in my division, and if I can exact revenge on my week 5 opponent and division leader in week 7 then I'll be back on top due to higher PF.

My current roster if it helps:

QB: Michael Vick
WR: Andre Johnson
WR: Larry Fitzgerald
WR: Robert Meachem
RB: Adrian Peterson
RB: Darren McFadden
TE: Rob Gronkowski
BN: David Garrard
BN: Early Doucet
BN: Mike Williams
BN: Todd Heap
BN: Dexter McCluster
BN: Danny Woodhead
BN: Shane Vereen
BN: Michael Bush
BN: Derrick Mason
BN: Dough Baldwin

K: Ryan Longwell
BN: Adam Vinatieri

DEF: Philadelphia
BN: New York Giants
BN: Kansas City (due to Phi/NYG both being on byes week 7)

LB: Patrick Willis
DT: Haloti Ngata
DE: Julius Peppers
CB: Cedric Griffin
S: Dewan Landry
BN: Pat Angerer

Really hoping Johnson will be back week 7 as I had no luck trading for a WR for week 6.
IR: Eric Berry

I never keep multiple kickers and 3 DSTs. Just use one and matchup per week!
You are depriving yourself of crucial depth.

John Beck available?
Charlie Whitehurst?
Matt Moore?
Christian Ponder?

Beck and Boller are the only viable QB options on the waiver wire.

Chad Henne
John Beck
Bruce Gradkowski
Kyle Boller
Josh Johnson
Shaun Hill
A.J. Feely
Luke McCown

Would there be any sense in picking up Chad Henne and holding onto him for down the road? Will he ever start again in Miami or elsewhere?

Crap, I had him on my bench until I dropped him a couple days ago when it seemed he would not be dealt. Hopefully I can nab him before someone else. Guess I'll blow my waiver spot (4 out of 16) to get him just to be safe.

Well I didn't get Palmer. Such a piss-off as the day I dropped him was the day the Bengals owner said he would not be trading him (prick!). This same thing happened with Favre when he signed with Minnesota the day after I dropped him and had a great season. Granted I did drop him for Vick and things are working out for me now.

So I grabbed Beck, and now I don't have KC for DEF as it either did not go through or it was reversed and someone else grabbed them leaving no DEF on the wire. From one piss off to another. I offered a 3rd round pick for any DEF playing this week strictly for points.
