Trade advice for a noob

Postby tullonp31 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 9:46 pm

Hi guys, thanks in advance for your thoughts. I just finished my first fantasy draft it was pretty fun. I was pick 10 in a 16 team PPR league.

I don't think I did that great so I am wondering if you guys think I should trade a star player or two to make my team better overall.

Here is the team:

QB: Joe Flaco
RB: Ray Rice (I have no idea how he fell to me at 10)
RB: Darren Sproles
WR: Randall Cobb
WR: Anquan Boldin
WR: Emmanuel Sanders
TE: Jimmy Graham
Flex: Ryan Matthews
K: none
Def: none
Bn: rb LeVeon Bell
Bn: rb Roy Helu
Bn: rb Johnathan Franklin
Bn: rb Isaiah Pead
Bn: rb Lance Dunbar
Bn: wr Julian Edelman
Bn(should be K): wr Brandon Stokley
Bn(should be Def):wr Quinton Patton

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks again!

My opinion. You practically have no depth. No depth that will actually help you anyway. And you're in trouble with Flacco as your starter. How does that even happen? You are in a 16 team league and there look to be about 12 QBs this year that can be quality starters. Did you wait until the last round to get a QB? Just going by ESPN's rankings for example, Flacco is ranked as the 17th best QB, but I don't even agree with that, for fantasy purposes there are a few others I'd put ahead of him. As far as a trade goes I'd try to make an offer like this... Rice/Flacco for Tony Romo/David Wilson, something like that.. I obviously can't give you every possible option for you because I don't know your leagues rosters. My point is find a guy that has a backup QB that is actually startable, I'd used Wilson as an example because it's possible somebody in your league has an elite QB and then a startable QB as a backup. Target the guy that has both a startable backup that he's likely to part with and a RB that you feel with outperform where he was drafted.

Okay, thank you for your help. I'll see if there is any interest for Rice in exchange for a qb and something else.

I'm a newbie too & I grabbed Flacco off waivers then realized that a QB can win games & still suck at fantasy. So I dropped him for Bradford & he actually did quite well in week 1. So you may want to see if he's available in your league until you can trade for someone better? Just a suggestion - good luck!

I dont think you did too bad for a 16 team league. You have a great crop of PPR starters...easily worth another15-20 points per game vs a non PPR league. I don't particularly care for Flacco as a starter either, so I'd try and make a move there as mentioned above.

Good luck!
