Pierre Thomas/Brown, How much should I bid? Worth it? *WHIR*

Postby AxCam24 » Mon Sep 17, 2012 11:19 pm

12 Team League, non PPR


My RB's are C. Johnson, Turner, Helu, and Moreno. (Floyd and Holmes are my flex options.) :-t

I'm in dire need of a RB, Andre Brown, Powell, Daryl Richardson are the other backs available.

How much should I bid for Pierre? I have 9,950 out of 10k to bid on Thomas for. Is he a long term option? What about Brown?

Oh man, that's rough. Not much of a solid word on Ahmad Bradshaw's injury yet. If so, I'd go with Brown.

Who knows with Pierre Thomas? If I owned him I'd use this week as a sell high.

I guess I'd bid a solid couple grand for Thomas if it comes out that bradshaw's injury is not that bad. Also, I just wonder if David Wilson doesn't get back in the mix eventually. he was a first rounder and even coughlin will want to see what he has at some point

Don't bid on Powell and Thomas shares a crowded backfield at the moment with the Saints in disarray. Andre Brown and Daryl Richardson would be the targets for the short term, then Pierre Thomas. I would bid more for Brown than Richardson, but enough to at least get one if not both. Thomas would be bench depth.

It looks like Jackson should be fine, so I don't know if Richardson should be the guy, since Jackson will be back week 3.

Bradshaw is questionable right now, but he might only miss a week if that.

Pierre is in a crowded backfield, but he had really outplayed Ingram in both games. Maybe Pierre might steal his job?

I'm in dire need of a RB as CJ and Turner are plodding right now, and Helu got Shannahanned.

Going to try and get 2 of them, thinking Brown or Richardson and Thomas.

If you place blind bids on these players and win said bids, are you able to recoup your original bid monies when you drop these players back into the free agent pool?

Nope, 10k for the year, have a lot left. Would like to save my money and blow it on a stud later on the year.

Going to try and get 2 of these guys, and hope for the best. Not sure which two, though.

I would definitely bid on Brown If Bradshaw ends up having a serious injury then he is the man without a doubt.
