p/u Javon Ringer? Anyone on my roster droppable?

Postby RedBirdChica » Thu Nov 03, 2011 11:02 am

Hey, guys! CJ owner here. I know, I know. I told myself I'd never draft him ... but made a crazy gamble on the wire in one of my leagues and LOST.

Anyone on my roster droppable to slide Javon Ringer onto my bench? I'm sort of stuck with CJ ... I don't know that owning his time share (more capable) counterpart is necessary. Maybe it'll just make me feel better ...

I realize that I'm carrying TWO defenses (which is almost offensive to me) ... but their schedules offset with tough matchups (especially during those crucial playoff weeks). I just don't know if I can drop the Bears - with the Bengals having games coming up against the Steelers (twice!) and the Ravens in weeks 10-12.

Non PPR. +1 bonus points for 100+ yd rushing/receiving, 40+ yd scores, etc. Leave me your thoughts. WHIR, with full analysis, as always. Thanks!

You don't have any players that I would drop. But you have 2 defenses and regardless of how good they are, you don't need to roster 2. I would drop whichever you feel more comfortable with. For me I'd drop da Bears

I know carrying two defenses is crazy. But, as I pointed out in my original post ... their schedules offset. It's an unconventional strategy ... but those points in swapping those matchups have honestly been to be the difference in five of my six wins.

Am I alone in that thought? Quite possibly ...

I don't see anyone I would drop, maybe the defense, but I'm not sure ringer would be worth it.

I'm leaning to agree. If it were someone REALLY worth it - I'd definitely drop a second D. But I don't know if Ringer is enough to make up for missing out on that option to play with defensive matchups.

I guess I should be content with my group. MAYBE CJ will have a decent enough game where I can package him in some kind of trade. Sigh.

If you can't talk yourself into letting the Bears D/ST go, I think the only droppable player is Thomas. Based on your reply to my thread, my perceived value of him is lower than yours, but I'm worried that with his injury concerns, he will only continue to lose ground on Bush.

However, if it were my team, I'd drop the Bears. The only troublesome matchups I see for Cincy are a pair of games vs. PIT, and maybe HOU.


Thanks for mine!

I don't see anyone worth dropping except one of your defenses. I wouldn't go crazy over ringer tho. Tennessee's run game is poor no matter who carries the ball.
