Miles Austin for BJGE

Postby deltaboy » Mon Oct 31, 2011 11:56 pm

Would you?

Austin is underperforming this year, as is the Dallas Cowboys and I have Jennings/White as my 1/2.

The league leader is stockpiling RB1s and will most likely be a seller soon as this season has seen it's slew of injuries to backs. His team is somewhat stacked (lucky) but needs only WR depth to replace Moss/Little/Crabtree's WR3 status.

My RBs are dropping like flies, but I'm afraid to put the #1 seed over the top. In time tho, I'm sure someone else will. Might as well grab something.

He also owns FJax, Murray, Greene, and Helu.

I wouldn't do this. Austin has an easy schedule coming up. I also think you can get more than BGE for him. With Blount coming back you're RB's aren't actually looking too bad. Do you play two WR's? No flex spot? I think your team looks good as is, but if one of your WR's is sitting on the bench week to week then I'd trade Austin, but for something more than BGE.

3 WR, no flex.

Ya, just getting worried for the stretch. Mathews, Tolbert, Blount are injured and I have already had Mendy and Best.

I have a good team on paper, but fail to exceed 80 pts week to week. The 3 teams ahead of me score 120+ pts consistently. I am full of underachieving glass bodies. Good news is that I am finished my byes pretty much.

I'd stay put then. I don't like the thought of having to rely on Brown or Breaston as your WR3. Your team hasn't been scoring points because of your RB2 spot. Now that Blount is coming back, that should change. I like you team as is. You can't afford to give up a WR like Austin at this point, especially for BGE. If you're worried about Matthews health, then look into trading him for another RB. Although, if Matthews goes down you do have Tolbert.

Staying put is the best way for me to control the league leader. If I don't deal with him, he cannot get better.

Praying Mathews and Blount are active next week!
