General Message Board
I would like your advice on if I should keep this team as is and ride it out, or make a few moves. Please keep in mind that this is a money league with friends, and they all have at least average knowledge of FF. I am currently 5-0 in one league and 4-1 in another. THIS TEAM IS 1-4 RIGHT NOW. Sometimes it easier for someone on the outside looking in to see something I may not.
10 team...1/2 PPR...return yrds 30 per pt....4 pts. passing TD's...6 pts rushing, receiving, returning TD's...top 4 make playoffs.
RB: Sproles (Ballard this week)
TE : Hernandez
W/R/T: R.Cobb (maybe A.Green this week?)
Greg the Leg
Bench: Alex Green, V.Ballard, LSH, B.Tate, Britt, Amendola, A.Roberts, Pitta
I have lost 2 games by less than 6 points...one of them was a BIG management mistake (benched Dez for Ryan Williams @ flex)..I would have won if I had kept Dez in.
Losing Amendola was a big loss...with these settings he was the #3 WR in points at that time. AJ and DJax haven't helped me out much. I picked up LSH, A.Green and Ballard in hopes they will pan out. Ballard just to get me through a bye this week, and Green to take the flex spot till Amendola comes back.
I feel like it's still a pretty good team...just not up to this point. Any suggestions?
Help me out and I'll answer one for you. I am ranked #8 on fandecisions right now...If you don't know about this site..go there after you help me, and thank me later.
Bad luck mostly. Not sure how much you can do about it. 10 team league everyone has pretty loaded teams, so not sure what kind of trades you can do. You are selling low on a lot of those guys.
Aaron Rodgers is out of sync on a lot of plays this year, but you have to keep him.
Andre Johnson is getting way less targets that anyone expected. Like 30 through 5 games, awful for #1 receiver.
Dez and Andre are dropping balls.
Cowboys O-line is struggling, so Murray is struggling.
New Saints coaches haven't really figured out how to get Sproles involved consistently
Jackson and Cobb are probably decent for your league
Basically, I think for a 10 team league, you just didn't end up with a very good draft.
My 10 team league, standard settings, I have
Romo/Dalton/RG3 (2 QB start)
Foster/Charles/McFadden/McGahee (2 RB start)
Roddy/VJax/DJax/Reggie Wayne/Gronk (3 WR/TE start)
This team is only 3-2.
It actually looks like a pretty good team so I'm guessing bad luck. Pitta's last couple weeks probably hurt if those were any of the one syou lost by 6. Ryan Williams let everyone down even before he got hurt. You should be ok if Ballard plays well enough to take the job or Green plays well. You need one of them to step up to your # 3 back. D Jax has actually been pretty good but just hasn't scored td's with Vick's issues. Good matchup for DJax this week and he has a good schedule most games the rest of the way.
Should I make this trade? It is PPR so it hurts losing Forte but I haven't been able to unload F Jax. I am making the offer so should I through in Finley to help?
Forte/Jordy for Turner/Gronk
Forte,T Rich, F Jax, M Bush, V Ballard, J Rodgers
Jordy, Bowe, V Jax, D Moore, James Jones

Hmmm...yeah..tough giving up Forte. I feel your pain with Finley though. I have him AND Rodgers in another league...so those drops hurt double! Now I'm not sure if he's playing this week and I don't have another TE either. Who is the other teams TE? They would have to have a pretty good one to part with Gronk.

AJ and Murray are killing you. I don't see things getting much better, as the Texans can run the ball and play defense thus don't need to throw a lot. You may still be able to get something for him based on his name value alone, so put him on the block and see who bites.
