Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I did it. Can't win without taking some risks. I am officially on the Cam Newton/Carolina passing game train, and I traded Tony Romo for Steve Smith (my only need was at WR).
Did I screw the pooch or do you guys think this was a good move?
It's a 10 team .5 PPR league and here's my final roster:
QB: Cam Newton
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Dez Bryant
WR: Kenny Britt
RB: Matt Forte
RB: Chris Johnson
TE: Jason Witten
WR/RB: Frank Gore
WR/TE: Steve Smith (Car)
DST: Changes weekly depending on matchup
Bench: Jon Stewart, Denarius Moore, Dexter McCluster, Julio Jones, Ryan Fitzpatrick
Solid team, can't believe your league allowed that trade to go through though, considering the receivers you already had. I personally wouldn't start Cam YET. Yes he's been amazing so far but Ryan on the bench playing Houston next week, he's been consistent for these past 2 weeks PLUS most of last season. Wait till Cam builds a reputation before you throw him in. If you recall, two seasons ago Brady Quinn had 2 great games - then nothing. Also, I would throw steve smith up to your second receiver slot and put Mcluster in your flex putting Dez on the bench this week. With Dexter starting, you'll get more points than Dez.
My 2 cents - I could be COMPLETELY WRONG. :)
Your only need was at WR? should've gotten a better DEF. that trade was a wash. romo is romo but now with a cracked rib. Steve smith has some up-side but he's going to get all the attention by teams secondaries.

Why would I trade for a Def? That doesn't make any sense. It's a 10 team league. There's always a great matchup defense available off the wire. Playing that way well net your more points 90% of the time than starting the same defense every week.
