hey guys! in my flagship league, a 12-team 2WR/2RB/flex with 0.5 PPR, i've recently caught up with inevitability, having a backfield of demarco murray and reggie bush was bound to get me some injuries, and now demarco is hurt.
somehow i'm the #1 overall team in the league, averaging 128 points a week and being 5-1 because i lost 130-120 in week 3. i'm currently 1 game ahead of two people at 4-2, and my ~770 points is roughly 70-75 points ahead of the #2 team in teh league, in terms of tiebreakers. i tell you all of this because i want you to know my situation as i am potentially looking to trade randall cobb for demarco murray's backup, felix jones.
obviously, if demarco is out for more than a week, this move makes plenty of sense.... but in the small/ish chance that he's out for 2/+ weeks, this could be a huge move for me when you take a look at my team
qb - tom brady (it was him or brees mid-late 1st round, and i'm kind of kicking myself now)
wr - brandon marshall
wr - dez bryant
rb - demarco murray
rb - reggie bush
te - tony gonzalez
flex/WR - randall cobb
k - robbie gould
DEF - bears DEF
WR - randall cobb
RB - benjarvus green-ellis
RB - william powell (dude from arizona)
TE - scott chandler (using for this week. someone nicked me on olsen for the bye)
QB - andrew luck
DEF - atlanta (i've still got it in case i'm able to toss it into a trade, as they're tied with the bears for most takeaways in the league. they've been double digits 4/6 weeks, with one of those 2 off weeks being 9 points. solid)
so basically like, i dont have much/any WR depth beyond cobb as i was trucking along with lawfirm in the flex spot for the most part, and i used cobb to get ~15 in each of the last two weeks while i was rotating brandon marshall and dez bryant through the bye weeks.
so while i'd like to have cobb, it's obvious that he isn't a giant TD threat yet, as aa-rod loves to go to jordy nelson and especially NFL rec TD leader james jones in the endzone.... but cobb is nasty in the slot, altho jennings coming back messes everything up cuz cobb might get buried, not to mention in the HOU game on sunday cobb was alternating series with donald driver in the second half.
so basically, would you guys trade cobb to get felix jones? i know i run the risk of jones being a backup within a week, but at this point maybe it's wise to have that handcuff for demarco.... idk. i gotta try and act tonight so this would be valid for sunday, so link to your thread for hte WHIR... i'll be up for awhile tonight.
