Gronkowski? WHIR

Postby rasmusDoh » Wed Oct 19, 2011 7:48 am

6-man PPR league

My team for week 7:
QB: Schaub
RB1: Ray Rice
RB2: McFadden
WR1: M. Austin
WR2: Fitzgerald
TE: Tony Gonzalez
K: Janikowski
DEF: ??? Weekly matchup
Flex: B. Marshall

Bench:
A. Johnson
V. Davis
B. Wells
Brady
Julio Jones
H. Nicks

Gronkowski was dropped and is now on waiver.
He started the season with 3 monster games, then had 2 bad games and then a decent one last week. He is, however, the second highest scoring TE (Graham is 1st).
Has he lost that much value after Hernandez came back and the NE run offense started working?

Would you rather have Gronk than Davis/Gonzalez?

Thanks, WHIR!

You would be forced to dump someone of value to grab Gronk. You need Gonzo this week and Gronk is on bye...Julio Jones is your most droppable player if you wanted to get him. You could then dump Gonzo once lineups lock putting in waiver claims for players.

What is available in such a shallow league?

Yeah i considering dropping Julio Jones to get him.
That would, however, leave me with 3 quality TEs.
3 TEs is way too much, even 2 is probably unnecessary when the bye week is over.

V. Davis have underperformed in some games, but is still a star.
Gonzo have scored 3rd most TE pts.
Gronk have scored 2nd most TE pts.

And i would probably have to dump two of those?

Available players on waiver/FA: E. Graham, Tolbert, BJGE, J. Nelson, Meachem, Colston, J. Jones

Have to dump at least one of them in next week to pick up a bye week kicker!

Who to choose? :)

What do you mean with Colston? :)

Just can't figure out if Gronk > Davis and if Gronk > Gonzalez ???

Thank you

Thank you, i'm gonna go with that - just put in a waiver claim for Gronk, cutting Julio Jones!

What would you do after next week then? Cut Gonzo and keep both Davis and Gronk - and play them by matchups?

And then I'd stick with Gronk all year and find a way to grab Colston, why is he sitting in FA? WTH?

Reason i never picked up Colston was because Brees spreads the ball around so much!
If he's that good i should definitely pick him up!

But i really don't know who to cut..
Will cut Gonzo AFTER this week, and he could fill that spot. Someone else might grab him if he has a good week though!

Also, and this is actually a big problem, I'm down to 3 RBs after a trade for Brady.. DMC's got his bye week next week, and Wells is playing Ravens that week. Not a good matchup! Could maybe use some other RB there.. But only guys like Tolbert, BJGE, Torain, Starks and D. Thomas are available! Do you prefer Wells with a bad matchup, to those guys?

Guess i can cut Schaub after this week too.. Is there any reason to have an extra QB when you have Brady and his bye is over?

Still means i can't get Colston this week though..
And i might still need a RB.. Do you think Wells will fail vs BAL?
