OK so this has been the most unfortunate week in Fantasy Football in my life. My team is in my signature below. But, 3 of my starters (Forte, Hernandez, and Bradshaw) got injured this week and at least two of them (Forte and Hernandez) will be out for 4-6 weeks. I won week 1 and lost week 2 but I am thinking that at this point I have 2 options.
1) Keep my team as is and sacrifice the next 4-6 weeks with pretty much a guaranteed loss each of those weeks without my star players, hoping that after that when my team is back and healthy, I will be able win the last 6 games or so and finish with a record of 7-6 (which should be enough to make the playoffs), and even win the league after that. I could try working the waiver wire and maybe even win a week or 2 while my guys are still injured, but we'll see - that may be wishful thinking. When healthy I think I have the best team in the league that could take it all the way. But if I can't even make it to the playoffs b/c of injuries, it won't matter.
2) I think I can make the following trade. I give up Brady and Kevin Smith, and in return, I get Ray Rice and Rivers. This will definitely help me in the short term, but not having Brady in the playoffs could hurt me in the long term. Plus the person I would be trading with has the only team in the league that could beat mine if we faced each other in the playoffs - and by giving him Brady I could be giving him the one thing he needs to beat me (even though I'm getting Rice).
So I'm in a bit of a pickle and I would love some expert advice from you fine gentleman.
Leave a link. Thanks fellas.
