Trade or wait?

Postby mixreveal » Sun Oct 23, 2011 7:51 am

Injuries have killed my team so far. I'm 2-4, but those two wins were the first two weeks against weak teams. I don't know whether I should/can wait for all four of my injured guys to come back (if they even do i.e. Best), or if I should try to trade one or two of them even though their value is pretty low at this point.

Any thoughts/opinions/advice would be much appreciated.

12 team, 18 spots per team plus one IR spot, keep 12 every year, no PPR
QB: *Brees, Fitzpatrick
RB: Blount(i), Best(i), *McGahee, *Maurice Morris, Donald Brown, Moreno
WR: Andre Johnson(i), Julio Jones(i), *Heyward-Bey, *Mohamed Massaquoi, *Damian Williams, Sidney Rice
TE: *Winslow, Ed Dickson
K: *Phil Dawson(bye week fill in), Rian Lindel

Play: 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1K, 1D

If you want to win this year, you have to just worry about this week and what you can do to win. Frankly you are almost in a must win every week going forward.

See if you can package Blount and Julio Jones to someone who is willing to wait. Someone that has space on their bench. Otherwise you may not be able to get a win for a couple weeks

Never trade injured players, your selling low and downgrading your team. You have to just ride it out or you have NO CHANCE later in the season. Just watch the waiver and try to be the first to pick up ant raising stars. AJ and Blount should both be back in the next couple weeks so just try to grind out a win to 2 and you should be ok.

You do need a RB see if you can flip Blount+Jones for a RB stud.
