So I am in first place in my standard scoring NFL league. I clinched playoffs a few weeks ago and can clinche first seed this week. I have scored about 100 points more than the 2nd place Team. Haven't made any trades as all I have attempted the other owner has come back with a ridiculous offer. d. Also, contemplating a few WW pickups now as a few players may be expendable. My initial gut reaction is to stay put for now unless I can swing a trade for a big producer (ala Arian Foster, Ray Rice, AJ Green). But I have been proactive in attempting to land a few big names and the counters have all come back asking for my top 3-4 players despite offering pretty good deals to begin with.
QB: Peyton Manning, Drew Brees (usually start Brees)
RB: Trent Richardson, Doug Martin, Ryan Matthews, Beanie Wells
WR: Demaryius Thomas, Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon, Lance Moore, Denarius Moore, Dwayne Bowe
TE: Aaron Hernandez
Flex: Beanie (debating between Wells, Matthews or Garcon)
K: Matt Bryant
Def: Matchup based - this week Carolina
I figure and D. Bowe, D. Moore are expendable WW fodder. Some intriguing WW targets left are: Jaquizz Rodgers, Joique Bell, Shane Vereen, Julian Edelmen and Emmanuel Sanders. Would any of these pickups be worth a look? I don't really envision starting any of them.
Trade deadline is tomorrow: Thinking about trying to swing some combination of Manning, Matthews, Beanie and Wayne for Ray Rice. His roster is pretty depleted with injuries. His QBs are Palmer and Vick. Starting WRs D. Alexander and Andre Johnson. RBs are Rice and Spiller, with Rashad Jennings as his flex. He still has a chance at playoffs so I figure he may give up Rice to upgrade a few other spots.
Anyway, what are your opinions, will help/rate in return.
