Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
12-team H2H, 0.75 PPR, 1 pt. per 25 yds. kickoff returned
WR- Miles Austin, Mike Wallace
RB- Charles, Ingram
Bench- Bradford, Tolbert, Malcom Floyd, Michael Bush, Starks, McGahee
How's my team and how did I do? In hindsight, I could've taken Felix Jones in round 3, then I might not have gone crazy on backup RB's. I know I don't have depth at WR, but hopefully Austin, Mike Wallace, and Manningham are every week starters.
I feel shaky about Ingram, but he should get a lot of goal-line work. Should I try and trade him now? Worth downgrading on Mike Wallace to upgrade at RB2? How should I improve?
Should I offer/do these trades?
I give Mike Wallace, Ingram, Starks Or just Wallace/Ingram for McFadden/Lloyd
I get McFadden, Lloyd, Jacoby Ford
I give Ingram, Tolbert, Hernandez
I get Finley, Burress, Thomas Jones
I give Ingram, Hernandez, Starks
I get Vernon Davis, Green-Ellis
I don't think your team is that bad. Yeah it would be nice to have a more solid running back core but i think you are going to be pleasantly surprised with Ingram. It appears that he is going to be in a time share with Thomas but is likely to get the goal line carries. and lets be realistic about Thomas, he will be out with one injury or another for a minimum of 4 to 6 games. Leaving Ingram the chance to show what he can do. I mean they didn't trade up to get him to not use him. Additionally i think Ryan Matthews eventually turns his ankle again and tolbert potentially becomes a beast and for Hernandez if you have been watching any of the patriots preseason games brady seems to be very confident and comfortable with hernandez. so maybe try to swing wallace and manningham for McFadden. assuming u can start a rb in that flex positon
Thanks. Yeah I feel fine with Tolbert as my no.3 back. I just feel shaky about my RB 2, TE, and a little on my backup WR depth (but I assume I'd start Austin, Wallace, and Manningham every week anyways). I felt unsettled right after I picked Ingram at the buzzer, instead of Best, Maclin, or some other players.
Should I give Ingram a chance?
Or is his trade value highest now before he might devalue after inconsistent weeks? Better to push him in trade now or after he has a good week?
