Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Hi everyone, my name is Brian Richards and I am a fantasy expert at Rotowire (yes, my job is great). I have been covering and playing fantasy football for a decade (Since 2000, 4 time champion, 1 time finalist, 3 time 3rd place finalist and playoff participant every year) and have built a good amount of knowledge about the wonderful game that I love. Since this week is when most fantasy drafts begin, I would like to give you guys an opportunity for me to answer your questions on drafting, player projections, trade ideas, etc.
Have a great fantasy year.
Having a bit of a hard time deciding who to keep for my team this year. Get to keep one player, sacrificing whatever round that player was drafted the prior year. Do I.....
Keep DeSean Jackson (Philly WR) and give up round 5 pick?
Keep LeSean McCoy (Philly RB) and give up round 8 pick?
Keep Brent Celek (Philly TE) and give up round 13 pick?
I know...all Philly players. Just worked out that way. Only other valuable player worth considering is Larry Fitzgerald for round 2 pick----but I might be able to get him around there anyway...
Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'd take flacco and matthews. You don't want to have 2 players on the same team, one word, Correlation. Im on the Flacco coming out party this year and Norv Turner said Matthews is guaranteed about 250 carries and 40+ catches out of the backfield. REVISIT IT
Hey man i am in 10 team league....Draft is tomorrow, I have the 10th pick...I am thinking about taking 2 WRS for my first 2 picks...is that stupid? Im thinking everyone in my league takes RBS in the first rd and dre 3000...Im thinkin of taking Randy moss and either reggie wayne/Miles Austin/Larry Fitz...What do you think?

No. He's not going to be playing for a while. But if you are really concerned with picking him up wait for Judgement Day (Sept 4th).
*Already suspended for Weeks 1-3, he'll miss the first six games if he fails to sign his restricted free agent tender prior to September 4. If a trade is to happen, he needs to sign his tender. Otherwise, an unlikely midseason trade would be his best bet if he's going to play at all this year*
here is my team:
1. (2) Maurice Jones-Drew
2. (23) Tony Romo
3. (26) Greg Jennings
4. (47) Jahvid Best
5. (50) Felix Jones
6. (71) Dez Bryant
7. (74) Knowshon Moreno
8. (95) Brent Celek
9. (98) Montario Hardesty
10. (119) Devin Aromashodu
11. (122) John Carlson
12. (143) Jacoby Jones
13. (146) Miami
14. (167) Mike Williams
15. (170) Chad Henne
16. (191) Sebastian Janikowski
what do you think of these trades:
i get rodgers, garcon,foster for romo,felix jones, aromashodu,hardesty
then i was going to do this trade
i get ryan matthews spiller for moreno foster garcon
what do you think?
should i even bother going after rodgers since I have romo? or should i bother going after another RB like matthews
