Should I Pick or Trade down?

Postby Yianni2112 » Wed Jul 16, 2003 6:13 pm

Our league is going on its 14th year and the scoring system has stayed the same very basic 6pts TD (off or def) , 4pts TD PASS , 3pts FG’s and anything over 50yds is doubled as well as 1pt for every 100yds passing, throwing or receiving. Last year I chocked in the semi-finals after finishing first in the regular season. Appropriately my team is named the Bills. It’s a keeper league and we get to keep our starting line-up 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1PK and one DEF. We can protect 2 rookies provided that you did not start them and you must choose to keep them or release them after two years. If you start them they no longer are eligible for protection.

My line-up is

QB: D.Bledsoe
QB: J.Harrington (protected rookie)
RB: R.Williams
RB: D.McAllister
WR: P.Price
WR: D.Stallworth
TE: R.McMichael
PK: M.Vanderjagt
DE: Eagles

I have the 4th overall pick (via trade) and I was wondering witch position needs the depth or should I trade down for a 2nd and a 1st next year or something like that or should I keep it ?

Possible players available
QB’s : Pennington/Plummer/Hasselbeck/Kitna/Collins
RB’s :T.Barber/W.Green/A.Smith/E.Smith
WR to many to mention none stickout other than the two rookies C.Rogers and A.Johnson

WHAT DO YOU THINK????

Your team looks strong, and none of the available players scream out to me. I'd trade down.

your weakest spot is obviously your WRs. are the rookies really the best left i find that hard to believe considering Tiki is still there? personally i would grab tiki with the #4 pick if i could too but if you can address your need with a solid WR then i would suggest you do that.

Here are some projected WR do any merrit a 4th overall pick

C.Johnson (Cin)

A.Davis (CLE)
J.Pathon (NO)
R.Gardner (WAS)
M.Booker (CHI) *
T.Taylor (BAL)
K.McCardell (TB)

I'm hoping C.Rogers falls to #4 so I can have a Harrington to Rogers combo. If he not available I don't know what to do any suggestions?

I would go with Rogers. he's going to be one of the best receivers in a couple of years.

I say grab TIki as well, you can grab him as insurance if Ricky Rasta or Deuce goes down to the injury bug. he's more valuable than a second tier WR.
