Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
My team is as follows:
QB: P. Manning, Romo
RB: Tomlinson, Brown, Turner, Parker, McGahee
WR: Fitzgerald, Owens, Colston, Calvin Johnson
TE: Gates, Scheffler
Believe it or not, i am currently 3 and and in 5th place in my league (however, i do have the most fantasy points) ... just always seem to run into somebody hot in the head to head...
Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 W/R, 1 K, and 1 D.
My problem is this, Chicago is on a bye this week and I need to pick up a defence. I really don't want to drop Chicago, because I will end up losing them. However, I really don't want to drop anyone off my current roster either. Who should I drop? I would say Scheffler, but, the problemn is I need him for next week as Gates is on a bye ... if I drop him, he will be picked up as well ... thoughts?
tough call. before you think about dropping anyone, try packaging a few players in a 2-for-1 deal. you've got an extremely strong RB core, and i know other teams would be more than happy to relieve you of some of them...
if a trade can't be worked out, i'd drop Scheffler before Chicago. Chicago should be a start most weeks, but with Gates starting in your TE spot, you're likely only going to play Scheffler once or twice more this season. but you will lose him. he's a great TE. but it would be a much worse loss for your team if you were to drop Chicago...
