Who do I drop for Eric Decker?! WHIR

Postby ScissorMeTimbers » Tue Sep 24, 2013 4:41 pm

10-team standard scoring league

Someone dropped Eric Decker in my league, I'm a little low on WR so I think he might be a good waiver pick up, the owner now regrets his choice and said he intends on picking him back up...fortunately I am one waiver spot ahead of him and can snag him if I want. I'm thinking I should drop Knowshon Moreno, any suggestions?

Other available players -Eric Decker, Fred Jackson, Bilal Powell, Jason Snelling, Santonio Holmes, Kenbrell Thompkins, Sidney Rice, Donnie Avery

Who should I target this week and who should I drop? Thanks.

QB - Matthew Stafford
RB1- Arian Foster
RB2- Knowshon Moreno
WR1- Brandon Marshall
WR2- Roddy White
FLEX- Giovani Bernard
TE- Vernon Davis
K- Blair Walsh
D/ST- Bengals

BN- Steven Jackson (RB)
BN- Ben Tate (RB)
BN- David Wilson (RB)
BN- Jordy Nelson (WR)
BN- Coby Fleener (TE)
BN- Leveon Bell (RB)

Wow. Definitely pick Decker up. It's tempting to use it on Powell or even Jackson, since your RB is the weakness. But Decker will score more points and Roddy is gimpy.

You have quite a few to pick up after Decker if you can snag them. Is this a 10-team league?

You can pick up Decker and b/c you have Jordy, use Decker as trade bait later on once Roddy comes back healthy as your #3 receiver.

Drop Fleener. I'm not sure why you need an extra TE in a shallow league. I guess b/c Vernon was hurt on Sunday you rostered him?

Help mine please:

Thanks for your help on my KC Defense question. Ok, I'd definitely nab Decker. He could finish as a top 10 WR even with the many mouths to feed in Denver. After his first 2 games, he seems to be super determined not to drop another ball again.

I wouldn't necessarily play Moreno but I'd rather drop your extra TE since you could throw a dart and get another TE like Fleener that will give you 30 yards and no TD's that game. Save Moreno and if he has another ok game, you could use him as a throw in on a trade. You still have Ben Tate and can play SJax as an ok RB #2 once he's back and hope David Wilson puts in some consistency. Bell will come in handy at some point as I do believe he will carry a heavy workload and get you at least 60-80 yards with the occasional TD which is better than expecting Moreno to do that every time.

Decker is easily the top WW grab for you. I'd probably drop Knowshon because I feel like that 3-headed monster will be RBBC for the entire season and you just never know who's going to score or get the most touches. He's worth owning, for sure, so it might be wise to try to swing a 2 for 2 trade ASAP so you have a more droppable guy than Moreno... and where you get the best player in the trade. =)

I say go for Decker hands down. It is kind of interesting that this happened because this same thing happened to me last week. I was in the same situation you are and what I did is told the other owner if we can work out a trade (before waivers are done) then I will let him take the guy we both wanted. Kind of shady but its Fantasy Football and I mean, lets be honest, it is all about winning.

But, if you can't work something, then def grab Decker. Best move for your team.

Go for Decker as I think at least Wilson or Bell will Pan out, and denver looks like an RB squadron.

I'd definitely drop Fleener for Decker. I'd also consider dropping Zmoreno for Powell but that's very debatable. Thanks for the help on mine.
When in doubt, punt!

Easy drop Fleener for Decker. Idk why someone would drop a good player on a ridiculous offense like that. Some people are way to impatient in fantasy football.

Please help with mine..
