I'm considering offering a trade of Alfred Morris for Percy Harvin and Joique Bell which after talking to the owner of the other team, I'm sure he'd accept it. This is a non-ppr league with no bonus points for yardage. RB's and WR's get 1 point per 10 yards rushing or receiving, and 6 points per TD.
At RB, I currently have Arian Foster, Doug Martin, Alfred Morris, and Rashard Mendenhall. My current WR's are Lance Moore, Dwayne Bowe, James Jones, Gregg Jennings, and Amendola. I'm not terribly desperate (current record is 5-3), but I think I need a better WR (correct me if I'm wrong about that).
Let me know what you think, and nice to meet you all.
thanks for your advice jonnyfootball. We don't have flex players. it's just 1QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1K, and 1DEF. But, I think you might be right. If Arian or D. Mart goes down, I'd need another quality RB. It's a gamble I guess. either D Martin or Morris will sit on the bench every week which is a waste of points, but might be needed if someone goes down.
If you played a flex I'd say to stick with what you got, but no flex and 3 WR's makes me think you should make this deal. Leaving Morris' points on the bench every week just in case of an injury makes no sense when you clearly need WR help, and Percy Harvin is a top 5 WR. Plus, imagine you keep Morris as insurance and he ends up getting hurt, not Foster or Martin. Then you still only have 2 RBs and no WR help. You're giving up a guy who's gonna sit on your bench most weeks, and getting a top 5 WR that is a must start every week.
Yes, do this. You are not sitting on a true #1 receiver (unless you count Bowe, which most folks don't anymore...) Percy will give you points every week, and when Amendola comes back, you'll have at least a decent 1-2 punch for WR. Jones and Moore will continue to get you pretty good points, but not at the consistency that Percy/Amendola will bring. It would be even better if it was PPR, but I say go for it.
