12 team league standard scoring start 1 QB 2RB 2WR 1flex 1 TE 1K 1DEF
So I've had an interesting year, I got killed with injuries (Britt and Charles) and was forced into trading to keep myself afloat, While I think I did an exceptional job making trades (got Ryan mathews for Owen Daniels and David Nelson) and increased my overall value. I failed to live by a common fantasy football mantra that we were all taught in the beginning: I have too many players on one team
QB: Phillip Rivers, Dalton
RB: Fred Jackson, Ryan Mathews, Jackie Battle, Roy Helu, Ronnie Browm (got screwed here, picked him up on WW during trade talks w/ DET)
WR: Michael Crabtree, Nate Washington, Sydney Rice, Denarius Moore (thinking about dropping for Baldwin but that's another story)
TE: Antonio Gates, Greg Olsen
K: N. Novack
DEF: San Diego
In case you didn't notice i have 5 out of my 9 starts as chargers... you can argue that kickers and defenses shouldn't really count as additions to the team (kickers don't matter imo, but I think a DEF does, what are your thoughts?) but even still I would have 3 arguably four players on my starting lineup.
Who would you try and trade here? Phillip Rivers has played poor lately and I don't think I could honestly trade straight up for anybody near Phillips level, besides his team is now finally healthy and while he is turning the ball over a lot he's putting up a lot of yards...I mean 400 yards passing against the chiefs is actually pretty good minus the TO of course. Ryan Mathews has looked good, I could certainly get similar value for him, but he's a little banged up ATM so I feel i'll have to wait a week or two before I could trade him for maximum value.
what RB do you think you could get Mathews for? what value does Ryan Mathews and Jackie Battle equal up to in a 2 for 1?
Antonio gates...I dunno what to do here, it looks like he's healthy so I could get trade value for him, Hell he got 80 yards tonight and a touchdown that called back on a bullshit call while being double teamed all night. unfortunately I'd have to trade for another TE because I have Olsen. Would you trade gates straight up for Aaron Hernandez?
also I have a potential trade for Owen Daniels, If I Got Daniels I'd imagine I'd go for a WR, What Value at WR could I get for Gates?
overall what would suggest my plan be?
sorry for the length I will make an effort to be very thorough in any response I give to those who help. just post link and I WHIR 100% thanks!
