Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Last night in a 10 team $200 auction draft I did some serious drafting. We play with QB, RB, RB, WR/TE, WR/TE, WR/TE, D, K.
The QBs get 6 pts per passing TD and everything else is standard.
QB Peyton Manning 35
RB Chris Johnson 60
RB Ahmad Bradshaw 16
WR/TE Miles Austin 34
WR/TE Steve Smith 17
WR/TE Jason Witten 5
D/ST 49ers D/ST 1
K Garrett Hartley 2
BE Darren McFadden 1
BE Clinton Portis 10
BE Tony Gonzalez 2
BE Marion Barber 2
BE Donald Driver 7
BE Derrick Mason 2
McFadden was an error after beer #5! Either way I want to get stronger at RB and lose some depth at WR/TE. Today I propose a trade that to my joy/surprise was accepter. Portis and Gonzalez for S. Greene and a no name!
Also Jahvid Best went for only $7 in this draft and I'm trying to make a trade straight up for either Witten or Driver.
Here's my line-up if this happens:
Driver or Witten/Mason
2 slots for FA (Royal, Massaquoi, Z. Miller, Tate
I have the second pick in a 12-team PPR league. Assuming CJ goes first, who do you like among Peterson, MJD and Ray Rice in PPR format?
Conventional Wisdom says take AP but I am leaning toward taking Rice because of his pass-catching in PPR format. Any thoughts?
I was offered a trade for Randy Moss and I am unsure if I should do it.
I get Randy Moss
I lose Michael Crabtree, Dez Bryant, Michael Bush
Should I accept the trade?
My Team (currently)
QB Kevin Kolb
WR Greg Jennings
WR Michael Crabtree
WR Percy Harvin
RB Michael Turner
RB Ryan Matthews
TE Heath Miller
W/R Beanie Wells
BN Dez Bryant
BN Julian Edelman
BN Marion Barber
BN Michael Bush
QB Eli Manning
WR Randy Moss
WR Roddy White
WR Mario Manningham
RB Ray Rice
RB Matt Forte
TE Antino Gates
W/R Steve Slaton
BN Justin Forsett
BN Alex Smith
BN Eddie Royal
BN Jabar Gaffney
I would like to propose a trade for Matt Forte and I was wondering who I should offer for him.
In a 12 team keeper league
QB- Kolb and Stafford
WR- Marshall, D. Jackson, Nicks, Knox, Evans, Driver, & Murphy
RB- Gore, Wells, Hardesty, D. Brown
TE- Shiancoe and Gresham
I feel like I am weak at the RB and that is why I am targeting Forte.
It is an incredibly deep league and the scraps on the wavier wire are not even worth it. Thanks for the help!
I'd thought I'd move the whole discussion forward to avoid having to go back and search after refreshing.
ME<<I am a first year Fantasy Football player so forgive this newbie question. My league already had its draft and I noticed that one manager never drafted a defense. It is listed as a roster position for the league. So here is my question; do you have to draft all roster positions? >>
YOU<<sorry i didnt answer rite away well i dont think u have to but u really should becuz it gives u points>>
ME<<So that defense spot can't be filled with another position and either remains empty or they would have to trade away a player for a defense? The reason I was confused by this is that it was a seasoned FF player who did it and didn't know if this was a strategy?>>
Here is my 1st ever draft, how'd I do?
QB: Drew Brees, Donovan McNabb
RB: Ryan Grant, Pierre Thomas, Carnell Williams & Michael Bush
WR: Calvin Johnson, P/U Bernard Berrian and dropped Sidney Rice today,Steve Breaston, Robert Meachum & Malcolm Floyd
TE: Antonio Gates & Heath Miller
K: Stephen Gostkowski
DEF: Philladelphia >>
YOU<<y did u drop rice? >>
ME<<I dropped Rice because he was going to be out at least half the year due to his hip surgery today and his level of contribution after that is questionable. I thought going with his teammate Berrian who should hopefully get more thrown his way in Rice's abscence. Should I have waited? >>
YOU<<they mite put him on the ir so u can pick berrian for free>>
We don't use the IR. Unless your telling me that any league gets the free p/u if one of their players goes on IR (and I really hope you won't tell me that). He's still there so I could go back and reverse it. Besides the Rice thing, all else look ok? And have you heard of someone intentionally not drafting a defense as a strategy. We have the negative points for defensive screw ups, well actually for all mistakes. I just want to make sure he can't slip another RB/WR can't go in that spot somehow.
Thanks, appreciate all your help. I am 1 of 2 girls in the league so I need to represent. Right now I have to take the puppy out real quick.
