Pick up Hernandez? WHIR

Postby rasmusDoh » Sun Oct 07, 2012 11:29 am

So Hernandez was dropped in my league, and cleared waiver so actually a FA now.

I have Jimmy Graham who has bye week next week, so i was thinking of making a move now while Hernandez is FA - hoping ofc that he's back next week, as i'll most likely always start Graham otherwise.

Problem is, though, that there's not really anyone on my roster (in my signature) that i feel like straight up dropping.

What do you think? Should i not try to pick him up today, and instead try to do a 2 for 1 trade? If so, any ideas?


Thanks, WHIR!

This being an 8-team league you can afford to drop a decent player to acquire a BYE week fill-in. The only player I see worth dropping now is the injured WR Nicks (can't believe I'm actually suggesting this :-o ) to acquire TE Hernandez. But I would watch the Pats this week and see how Hernandez looks (if he plays) before making the move. I don't expect Nicks to be back next week either with both a foot and knee injury, and you have the WR depth to overcome the loss of Nicks.

I'd consider dropping Murray. Certainly some risk but if Hernandez does come back and play well you might be able to use him next week then trade him with a WR for better RB than Murray if you wanted to. Or you could keep him for depth.

So i was too slow / wanted to consider this more.

Now Graham sprained his ankle too, great. Hopefully he'll be back after their bye week, but this just means i need a good TE even more. Hernandez could be that for sure.

Overall i'd definitely be best to try and make a trade, but i fear that someone else might go for Hernandez, so probably have to use waiver on him and thus gotta drop someone.

Murray has kinda sucked, but i only have 4 RBs total, so don't wanna drop a RB.
On the other hand i have 6 good WRs, but as you say it just screams crazy to drop Nicks.
If a WR i guess it should be Nicks or Lloyd.

I've considered dropping Manning instead actually. He's been pretty consistent, but i'd never start him over Brady except for Brady's bye week. That's not until week 9.

What do you think??

Don't drop Manning. 8-o I would trade him first before I dropped him altogether. You will need him for Week 9 for sure.

And I wouldn't drop Murray, either. :-o Trade him, too, before you decide he is expendable on your roster. There has to be a team or two in your league that could use a starting RB for a good TE (Davis, perhaps?)

Yeah but i still need Murray. Will kill my depth at RB if i trade him. If i should trade him, i should probably wait for him to have a good week, so i can sell high for another RB + maybe something else.

Jordy certainly havent impressed, thats true! Had a good week last week, but the rest has been mediocre or really bad.
It sucks that i started him this week.

Maybe i shouldnt rush so much to get Hernandez, that i have to drop someone. Make a 2 for 1 trade instead?

There's guys like H. Miller, Celek, Chandler, G. Olsen, F. Davis and Cook in FA/waiver, in case someone picks up Hernandez before i can do a trade.

Would that be a better idea?

You can't go wrong with a 2-1 trade. Especially if you are interested in a player on waivers. All you need is another team worth trading with.

I agree, trade if you can first. I have been sitting on Hernandez for weeks, I hope he plays this week!

Please help!
