Who to drop for DEF and kicker? WHIR

Postby rasmusDoh » Tue Aug 28, 2012 4:53 pm

Just finished my first draft (5th pick in 8-man PPR league).
Did as suggested some places and didn't draft a defense or kicker.
I figure that the strategy mostly applies to early drafts, but there's still 8 days left so thought i'd go with it.

My team ended up being:

QB: Ryan
RB1: McCoy
RB2: Murray
WR1: Welker
WR2: Nelson
TE: Graham
Flex: S. Jackson

BN: Eli Manning
BN: Dez Bryant
BN: Dwayne Bowe
BN: Steve Johnson
BN: Kenny Britt
BN: Peyton Hillis
BN: C.J. Spiller
BN: Donald Brown

So at some point before wednesday (or sunday i guess if it doesn't involve giants or cowboys players??) i gotta dump two of these to get a kicker and a defense.

Who'd you go with?

And who would you add?

Good defenses (top 10 on fantasypros) left are Ravens, Steelers and Jets
Good kickers left are Prater, Kaeding, Kasey/Hartley (who's the starter?)


Thanks, WHIR!

I would drop Spiller and Britt for the Ravens D/ST and Prater. I would first look at a 2 for 1 trade though.

Maybe try trading Spiller + Britt to the guy with Fred Jackson?
Or Peyton Hillis + Britt to the one with Charles?

Thats my best ideas..

Fred Jackson guy have (not including guy like Brady):
Decker
McGahee
Garcon
Wayne
Wells

Maybe Spiller + Britt for McGahee? Or Decker

Guy with Charles:
Maclin
Vick (Newton as starter)
Gore
VJAX

Maybe Hillis + Britt for Maclin? Guess i wouldn't do that myself..

Yeah, you gotta try to make a trade. I would feel sick having to drop any of those guys. If you have to, I guess spiller and Britt.

Proposed Spiller + Britt for McGahee to the one guy and Hillis + Britt for Maclin to the other.

If he doesn't go for Maclin (which i wouldn't), should i try VJAX? Not high on him after he screwed me last year with Rivers, but what are your thoughts?
