Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I think David is trying to deceive people, some of things he says like taking Jamaal Charles 9th overall, or making sure you get two RB's rd1 and 2 and a WR rd 3, just don't make sense to me. You can't be so rigid and Charles is going on average in the 30 in yahoo and in one league I was in he went 50th. We are all entitled to our own opinions. I though know fantasy, it is sad how many hours of my life I waste on this, I alreay bought 3 guides and have reranked all the players at least 10 times in excel. I am hear to help, David I believe is just laughing at you and making things up as he goes along.
my QBs are Favre, Alex Smith, and Stafford. RBs are Gore, Pierre Thomas, Marion Barber and howlands-smith. In my league return yards and return TDs go to the player not the team D.
another manager has offered me darren sproles for favre straight up. my WRs are not an issue as i have wayne, jennings and ward. do you think the combination of smith and stafford would be enough to carry my team. its a 12 team league so there are not many, if any, quality QBs on the waiver wire. should i make this trade?

This is a great deal for anyone but you, I don't know you exact scoring, but even return leagues are QB heavy scoring. You have two very good rb's and a returner. I do not think Smith and Stafford can carry you in a 12 league. You are already solid at QB, RB, and WR, no reason to get better at RB, to have the worst QB's in the league.

I can not see the future, so I can't be sure but considering he was injured all last year I can't see drafting Megatron as if he is a top 5 receiver. Top 5 andre, moss, wayne, marshall, and good question I would personally go with D. Jackson, with an unproven runner Philly will still pass alot and unlike Austin in Dallas, Philly doesn't have alot of weapons. Megatron may finish in the top 5, but so may Welker, just like people are downplaying Wes due to coming back from injury you have to downplay Megatron based on what happened last year.
In a 18 team league and I have the 16th overall pick, shortly followed by the 21st pick in a snake draft. What players do you think i should target with these picks. I'm thinking i need to draft a top qb win one of the pics than whoever the best available wr/rb is. Any combo suggestions?

In my own thought process the top 3 QB will be gone by 16th, but more may go, you never know. I personally would never be an 18 team league their just are not enough quality people to draft. you have to guarantee you get a top 8 QB, so if less than 6 QB's are taken go with the best RB available and then coming back go with a QB, I feel like if you don't take a RB in the first two rounds you will be in trouble, I would rather have my best WR be Houzmanzadeh, than have my best RB be Forte or Foster.

keep AP, Rice may have higher td's this year but should have less catches, with all the problems in Minnesota with Sidney Rice and Harvin, AP may just go off. I hate to waive rice especially in PPR, but the smarter move is to keep AP.
I would like to know what you guys think on who wins this trade.
Team A gets: Philip RIvers, Michael Turner
Team B gets: Aaron Rodgers, Pierre Thomas
Team B also has Beanie Wells, what would you guys think of the trade if it was Rodgers and Beanie Wells instead of Pierre Thomas. Please leave your opinions. Thanks.
My Team before:
QB Peyton Manning
WR Greg Jennings
WR Brandon Marshall
WR Devin Aromashodu
RB Steven Jackson
RB Beanie Wells
TE Jermichael Finley
K Rob Bironas
Trade: I get Rivers, Fitz, Mendenhall OR Greene
I give P Manning, S Jackson
Should I accept? Which RB should i take if i were to accept....

I like the deal, but who would you be waiving, because you didn't list your whole bench. I think Mendenhall as a 3 down back versus Greene who will lose some time to LT if definitely the better pick, actually he is basically neck and neck with Jackson. The deal though is very good any time you can give you two starters to get 3 it helps your team overall. I am not a big fan of Aromashadu, I feel like Hester and Knox are more likely to break out than him.
some of my draft was auto drafted and they picked kenny britt for me from tenn, should i drop him and pick up mike willams from tb? my other receivers are marshall, jackson, driver, and wallace so its not make or break, but i hear this williams guy has a lot of potential and ive never heard of britt. what do you think?

Britt was a rookie last year and let all Tennessee receivers in yards with around 700, the Tennessee offense is definitely better than the TB, so I wouldn't waive him for Williams. Williams is getting press because he was drafted in the 4th rd and is beating out Benn who was drafted in the second rd. I would definitely rather have Britt, depending on the size of your league and who is available I am okay with the idea of waiving Britt but definitely not for any receiver on TB.
Rate my team please...Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Drop Orton, with Rodgers, you don't need a backup till his bye which is week 10.
You obviously need another RB. It is your weakest postion by far, but I do think Foster or Spiller will be a top 25 back. You drafted way too many sleepers at WR. Starting Avery in a 12 person league ugh. Out of Williams, Thomas, and Naanee I can almost guarantee only one of them will be on your team come the end of the season, two of them aren't starters and Williams is the best receivers on TB now he was a 4th rd draft pick. Unfortunately not a good draft, you are only above average at QB, and below average almost everywhere else. I wish I could be more positive but you made alot of reaches especially at WR.
I would have to give you a 3.5 out of 10, considering 5 is average and think you have 3 great players Marshall, Peterson,
Rodgers, and not much else, if someone offers you a 2 for 1 deal for Peterson or Rodgers, I would seriously consider taking it. maybe trade Peterson for Boldin and Greene or something like that.
Who wins its NOT a ppr league.
Team A receives
Team B receieves
Brandon Jacobs, NYG
Brandon Marshall, Mia
Antonio Gates, SD TE
I am Team A he accepted it
So my new lineup is
RB Steve. Jackson
WR Hines Ward
WR Santana Moss, or Johnny Knox
TE J. Finley

I think you lost big time. obviously Jackson is better than Jacobs, but you lost on two out of three positions. Based on your team you didn't need to do this, previously your RB and WR's were more equal, now you have great RB's but your are lacking at WR. Marshall will be a top 10 receiver, I would be surprised if Moss is in the top 30. If Jacobs is healthy and he will get at least 10 tds.

Turner will definitely outscore Greene if healthy for the whole year. The problem is Turner was hurt last year, but all rb's get hurt. I do think Greene will still be a top 10 back, but Turner should be top 5 and can even be top 3 if healthy.
