Not happy with my team. Need Ideas. WHIR!

Postby Rit » Tue Sep 11, 2012 10:21 pm

So I won by 8 points but that's because the guy I played had J. Stewart in who didn't play, so he got a big goose egg, so I won by luck...

Team is in my sig... I'm 8 of 12 on the waiver.... Looking at doing trades as well... Any suggestions?

Couple Waiver Ideas...

Alfred Morris
Davone Bess
Danny Amendola
Braylon Edwards
Stephen Hill
Scott Chandler
Dennis Pitta
Marcedes Lewis
Alshon Jeffery
Jeremy Kerley
Andrew Hawkins
Kevin Ogletree
Cecil Shorts


Also, I don't think I'm going to be using one kicker all season, just bounce from week to week.

Grab Morris obviously. He has potential to be a real horse for Shanahan's offense, but then again, you never know how long he'll keep the job with the way Shanahan changes starting RB's all the time.

Other than Morris, I also like on your list: Stephen Hill, Ogletree, Alshon Jeffery, and another you failed to name: Aldrick Robinson from the Redskins. He's probably a free agent in your league too.

Hmm... I'll have to look into that guy. And at number 8 pick on the waivers i'm 100% sure Morris will be gone... So I'm starting to think of trading J. Rodgers to the guy that has Turner, since Turner is looking a little shooty. Maybe I can get something out of it.

I agree that RB Alfred Morris probably won't be there at #8 for you to pick up but I would nonetheless place a waiver claim for him just to be sure and drop RB Goodson.

Again, you could use a WR and Kevin Ogletree would be a nice pickup as well but he may not be available to you. Regardless, I would place a claim for him and drop RB Goodson (just in case Morris is taken).

I would look to make a trade or two to upgrade areas of your roster. You can try the Rodgers deal to the Turner owner but not sure if he will bite right now. You can list his roster here and maybe a proposal could be worked out.

Ugh. I like your team better. I really don't see anything you can do with Rodgers and the Turner owner at this time. Wait a few weeks and see what transpires with roster changes in your league before you make too many changes now.

I like your team..wait to see what happens with Rogers before you think of trading him. He may have a lot more value in a few weeks. You could use another RB for Flex or just backup. I would dump Redman and see what you can find. I'm also stashing Jahvid Best on IR right now because he should be back week 7 and could be a good sell then or someone to have.
