    1st place, at the price of my whole team...

    Moved into 1st place today, with a loss. (1 pt ppr, 1 pt/25 return yards 12 team h2h). I have lost Percy Harvin, Antonio Brown, Willis McGaheee and Rob Gronkowski now. I think I'm toast.

    I traded away Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Johnson to get Gronk. So screwed now.

    Here's what I have left, sitting in 1st place...

    QB: Rodgers
    WR: Amendola, Hartline, Kerley
    RB: Ridley, Beanie Wells
    TE: Olsen
    BN: Palmer, Rashard Jennings, Harvin, Brown, Gronk and McGahee

    I'm dropping McGahee and Jennings for a combo of ronnie hillman, jalen Parmele and bryce brown. But I think I'm done here. Anyone have any suggestions?

    • the main thing is your QB is still in place and if you get those 3 rbs along with Wells u might have some trading power to help you out in the playoffs it isnt going to be easy but dont give up

    • No faith in Parmele? What TE could I get for Gronke? I've had olsen all year and traded up to get gronk, thus I got f'ed by his injury. It is PPR and punt return yards for scoring so Harvin and amendola are monsters. And if brown ever found the end zone he'd be a beast as well. I don't think Palmer has any trade value (everyone left has a qb that's good enough) so I may just drop him for some RB or WR depth.

      I'm thinking about going for blackmon as well (he got dropped last week) and playing him over kerley whose just been awful. With Harvin coming back and Rodgers, anything is possible right? I'm already in the playoffs and if I win 1 of next 2 games I have a bye for the first week so I wanna salvage some $ out of this league.

    • Id look to trade Gronk and Palmer for a TE, Gronk will probably miss the rest of the season. He is projected to miss 4-6 weeks and the Pats might sit him till the playoffs cuz they pretty much have a top seed.

    • IF you can hold out until Gronk and Brown are back (Harvin should be back this week) you still have a chance...not a good one but a chance.

      Suggestions:

      Get Hillman and Brown (in that order)

      If you can try to get Blackmon (if he's available) and hope yesterday wasn't a fluke

      See if there's anyone in need of a QB and try to move Palmer if possible. Either straight up for a player or pair him with a RB or WR for an upgrade.

    • good luck next year.
