Commissioner Corner Message Board
I hate to give up on him this early into the season, but he's looking like Britt of 2012 all over again. Thinking of dropping him for Andre Roberts, thoughts? Any Britt owners out there still hanging on to him? As someone who drafted him last year, I have him on a short leash after his #$%$ poor performance in 2012.
Hey guys, I'm considering dropping Miles Austin for a higher upside guy like Andre Ellington. Let me know what you think.
12 team league .5 PPR, my roster consists of:
QB: RG3, Pryor (RG3 bye is this week)
RB: Charles, Bush, SJax, McGahee
WR: Marshall, Garcon, Gordon, Blackmon, M Austin
TE: C. Clay, Gronk
Everyone laughs in your face when offering Austin up for anything more than the Marlon Browns of the world... Sadly, his value is so low that anyone I could get in a trade I'd rather drop for Ellington anyways. Bundling is the only way I'd be able to deal him, but that will take longer to work out a deal and I have a feeling Ellington is claimed after this weekend so I want to get him before then.
I was offered Lynch for SJax and Blackmon in a 12 team .5 PPR league. I see Lynch and SJax as virtually even in a .5 PPR league (Especially with Julio out now), but that's assuming SJax is back to 100% in week 7 and that he doesn't have a setback when he returns.
My roster is:
RB: J Charles
RB: R Bush
WR: B Marshall
Flex: (SJax when healthy) currently J Gordon.
Bench: (Gordon), Blackmon, Harvin, McGahee, Ellington, Pryor
If SJax was healthy, I'd hate this deal, but for as long as he's out, I'm juggling Gordon & Blackmon in my flex. While I feel like I'm giving up too much, health plays a huge factor into the decision. Jackson has only missed 2 or so games in the past 4 years, but he's on the wrong side of 30 and could be on a downward trend with regards to health. I see this deal as buying insurance, sure it costs a little bit, but you'll sleep better at night knowing you have it.
What would you do if you were offered this deal given the above circumstances?
I agree with everything you just said. & teams will also be able to stack the box especially if White is still hobbling around.
As far as grabbing another player, Vereen is sitting in FA and I'd rather stash him then get another player the other owner has haha. I'm assuming that's why he's willing to take the risk to get 2 solid players in return even if SJax is just average when coming back.
The Calvin Johnson owner in my league, who also had Julio, is panicking right now since he has minimal depth & said he's fielding offers for Johnson & will accept the best one. I'm thinking of offering Blackmon, Gordon, and McGahee for Johnson (& possibly L Miller thrown in if I can get him). I have Charles, Bush, SJax as my 3 main RBs and Marshall, Garcon, and Harvin (stashing). Not to be arrogant, but I'm sitting damn pretty in a 12 team league & would even have the dilemma of having to bench 2 of Johnson, Marshall, Garcon, Harvin, Charles, Bush, and SJax assuming none are on byes (standard rosters, 2/2/flex).
Pull the trigger? If you were desperate would you deal Calvin for Blackmon, Gordon, McGahee? Think if I throw in Garcon, McGahee and either Blackmon or Gordon I could squeeze L Miller out of him? I believe he eventually takes off and would be nice insurance.
He's looking at Wallace and Jennings as his starting WRs if Johnson misses any time and Gore, Mendenhall, Miller as his RBs/Flex with Montee Ball, Ingram and Dwyer on his bench..... He's desperate.
Blackmon is my WR5 behind Marshall, Garcon, Gordon, and soon to be Harvin. In this scenario, would you trade Blackmon (or one of the other guys) for Joique since I have Bush? The insurance of having a top 10 rb replacement if Bush goes down could help much more than bye week blackmon. Thoughts?
12 team .5 ppr my other RBs are Charles, SJax, and Ellington (plus bush).
Yeah man, I feel you that I can do better especially if I bundle. Bush just scares me and I will literally never use all 5 guys whether it be Harvin Gordon or whoever.
That's a good point about Harvin, but even so I hate giving up so much potential for a backup. Especially one who just got banged up. Maybe I'll go after spiller or Martin with an Ellington & blackmon deal.
Would I be over thinking the matchups to bench Garcon against the Bears this week if my other options are Marshall (vs Was, no brainer), Gordon (vs GB), and Blackmon (vs SD)?
Obvious answer would be SJax, but coming off the injury/playing in a late game are two factors leaning me towards Gordon even against a good KC secondary. I do however have Andre Ellington who I could plug in if SJax doesn't play since AZ plays the Falcons.
A: Gamble on SJax & sub in Ellington if needed.
B: Take the sure thing and play Gordon against KC (has a better secondary than GB, which was able to shut him down).
I have the highest waiver claim & Vereen is out there so if I want him it's a sure thing. I'll have an open roster spot and I can either re-add Knile Davis who I dropped for the bye week (presumably after he clears waivers to keep my #1 claim) or add Vereen. Here's the kicker, I don't even remotely need RB help, I just want to keep him away from another contender.
My RB situation is: Charles, Bush, SJax (Ugh), Ellington, A. Brown.
WR are Marshall, Garcon, Gordon, Harvin.
12 team .5 ppr league, standard rosters. So in reality I'll be starting Charles, Bush, Marshall, Garcon, and any of the above listed guys as my Flex.
So even if Charles goes down (knocks on wood) I'll have a decent replacement. So my question comes down to: Lose insurance policy to handicap another owner who would likely add Vereen since there's quite a few teams struggling at RB. The way I see it, in the event that Charles goes down, who's to say Vereen won't still be a better play than Knile Davis. Thoughts?
Yeah that's what I'm thinking too. I normally love the idea of handcuffing studs down the stretch, but Vereen is too good to pass up.
This morning I was awarded Bobby Rainey off waivers, but had to drop my kicker to make room for him. Now I'm in the position where I need to drop someone & it comes down to my handcuff in Knile Davis as a Charles owner or one of the guys I'm hoarding to keep them off other teams. My players are as follows.
RB: Charles, Bush, SJax, A Brown, Vereen, Ellington, Rainey, and Knile Davis.
WR: Marshall, Garcon, Gordon, and Harvin.
I have Gronk, RGIII, and KC D/ST so no backups at those respective positions to drop instead.
So the question comes down to: Cut Knile Davis or one of the above players?
12 team PPR league so you can see why I don't want to cut any of those guys and let another owner get a starting caliber RB to potentially use against me in the playoffs.

If you want him to have points this week, move in the highest projected from each position and whatever that totals is his score for the week.
To prevent draft pick tanking in the future implement a lottery system like the NBA draft has.
Worst Record gets 30/100 Chances at the first pick
2nd Worst gets 24/100 Chances
3rd Worst gets 19/100 Chances
4th Worst gets 14/100 Chances
5th Worst gets 9/100 Chances
6th Worst gets 4/100 Chances
If it were my league I would leave it a 0, kick that guy from the league for next year, and also implement a lottery system to determine future draft orders. If you swap in points for him, someone else will get bumped out of the playoffs and will be #$%$ at you. At least this way you can keep your hands clean of all wrongdoing by removing him for future years & just let the issue run its course.
Hey guys, I've been running a redraft league with some close friends for a few years now & we've been discussing moving it to a keeper league. I'm looking for some tips and advice on the most successful approach. What I have in mind is as follows:
100% redraft next year, declaring the league as a keeper moving forward.
12 teams (Divisions? Never use them, what are they advantages)
Auction or Snake Draft better? I prefer Auction, but this seems like it can be overly beneficial in this format. (Eg if you had Morris, Cobb, Wilson, & Stacy for 10% of your budget leaving you tons of room for overspending).
Waiver Wire or FAAB? Leaning FAAB
# of Keepers? Leaning 3, possibly 4 if I expand rosters past what is standard.
Pick your poison playoff seeding: No playoff byes, weeks 14-16, 8 teams. Best record picks their opponent, 2nd best picks theirs, and so on until all 4 match ups are determined.
Any advice will be much appreciated as I look towards next year!
