MY J Nelson for his D Thomas(Mia-RB)

Postby garretterik » Sun Nov 13, 2011 10:29 pm

I have plenty of WR's need RBs for the stretch. JNelson is my 3rd or 4th WR. DThomas would be my 3rd RB.
JNelson / MManningham, and SJohnson all split time at my flex. D Thomas would be in the mix for my flex and could push SGreene to the bench if he keeps up with this garbage.

My team:
My team currently: (Yahoo head-to-head standard scoring)
QB Eli Manning (NYG - QB)
WR Calvin Johnson (Det - WR)
WR Steve Smith (Car - WR)
RB Chris Johnson (Ten - RB)
RB Shonn Greene (NYJ - RB)
TE Antonio Gates (SD - TE)
W/R/T Stevie Johnson (Buf - WR)
BN Mark Ingram (NO - RB)
BN J Flacco (Bal - QB)
BN J Addai (Ind - RB)
BN LaDainian Tomlinson (NYJ - RB)
BN Mario Manningham (NYG-WR)
BN J Nelson (GB-WR)
BN Bernard Scott (Cin - RB)
K Mike Nugent (Cin - K)
DEF Dallas

I say go for it. Manningham finally seems to be getting back on track, and with him plus Jonhson, your flex spot should be more than fine without Nelson. I honestly can't imagine Bush keeping up his game for too long, and Thomas has been getting a good number of carries alongside him anyways. Definitely has potential to kick SGreene out of there

I don't know man...I haven't really paid much attention to Thomas and his touches a game since his injury...Bush has been great the last 3 weeks so it's hard to say what value Thomas can give you...like jay said, who knows how long Reggie can keep it up but I think you should try to target a better RB with Nelson because the way I see it is that Thomas would basically be like LT, another emergency starter.

Although the passing game in GB can be inconsistent with the various threats, it seems like Nelson has emerged as the 3rd option behind Jennings and Finley. I think you can at least get someone like Tolbert, Pierre Thomas, or maybe even MJD. Nelson has scored more points this year than all 3 in my league (standard PPR)

Nelson is a top 15 WR in most leagues, he's actually 7th in mine. You can get WAY, WAY more for him than DThomas, who is losing his job to RBush.


help w/ mine?

You can get more, someone who is playing and productive. Example would be marshawn lynch whos heating up and that is still too low. You could get any back outside the top 10 i would say. Look into ryan matthews or cj2k mjd or bradshaw or dmc if you can wait it out.

Please help

Don't do it. Nelson has way more upside! Who's available on your waiver at rb? D Thomas is a FA in my league...
