I'd be surprised if you could even get Watkins with the #5 priority. You wouldn't in my leagues, I know that for sure. But I would put in for him for sure, especialy if you have someone you're #$%$ing to drop.

Alternatively, use your #2 on McKinnon, and trade Eli for a decent RB. Dalton already had his bye, so you don't need a backup unless he gets injured.

I think Lacy has more upside and potential than anyone else involved. Though it's hard to say. Hopkins might be coming on this year, and Ellington could still bust out once he's fully healthy. Actually, I think that trade is fairly even at this point, because they're all such unknowns. It could easily prove to be lopsided one way or the other later in the year, but that's hard to tell right now.

Zac Stacy and Alfred Morris are my starters. I also just picked up that rookie on the Ravens. I figure I can spare Tate or Ellington.
I have Ben Tate and Andre Ellington on the trading block. I'm looking at a team with Coradelle Patterson and Kelvin Benjamin on the block. I have no interest in a two for two trade. I'm talking about a one player for one player trade. So which commination of players seems the best? Or is none of it good?
Tate for Patterson
Tate for Benjamin
Ellington for Patterson
Ellngton for Benjamin

No way in hell would I propose this trade if I were you. I think if it were just KD for John Wall, Vucevic, and Marshall, that might be more reasonable. But I agree with David Vest. You're probably better off leaving KD out of it all together. Keep Calderon. Try Green for Marshall like DV suggested.

I've got Favors and I'm holding him. But Leonard is expected to play tonight, so if he's on your wire, I'd #$%$ him up quickly. Preferably you should drop someone else besides Favors. Maybe someone who isn't producing for you. But if you're desperate, and you have absolutely no one else you want to cut, then I guess go ahead and do it. Keep in mind though, Favors is still technically day to day, and for all we know he could play tomorrow when the Jazz return home. Or Monday.

Agreed. I have both iT2 and Hawes on my team, and IT2 is waaaaaaay better. Especially since there are trade rumors circling around Hawes, and he loses value if he goes elsewhere. But even if he does stay in Philly, no way is this a good trade. If I were the Hawes owner in your league, and you offered me, I'd quickly accept it before you changed your mind, and laugh all the way to the playoffs.

Well, I don't care what his matchup is two weeks from now. Manning will be back and he'll be dropped.
I was thinking Pryor too, but I was hesitant because he really did nothing passing the ball yesterday. Other than that highlight 93 yard run, he kind of sucked. But, the Philly Def does kind of suck as well. So you guys might be right.
Don't have a backup QB on the roster, seeing as how I'll only need one for week 9 while Manning has a bye.
Who would you pick up from this bunch:
Ben Rothlesiberger (@NE), Case Keenum (vs. Ind) Terrelle Pryor (vs. Phillie), Jason Campbell (@ Bal.) Jake Locker (@ St. Louis)

Sorry, man. Only had one spot left and SY United took it. I'll keep your email around though in case someone else bails. Already had one guy bail on me this weekend, which is why I even needed one more spot to begin with.
- Alejandro Alejandro Oct 15, 2013 12:31 PM Flag
Check that. The team manager with the 5th spot has offered to swap with the new team manager. So you could have your choice of the 12th or 5th draft spot.
- Alejandro Alejandro Oct 14, 2013 4:49 PM Flag
Actually, I'm not taking Anthony Davis either. Last year I narrowly missed drafting him in the 4th and was glad I did, because he was not even worth a 4th round pick. Its all well and good he's having a great pre-season, but until I see consistent first/second round type numbers from him in the regular season, which I have not yet, then I'm not taking him there. Someone else can have him.

Need one more manager for this league! We had one who bailed. He drew the 12th pick in the draft randomizer, so the new team will get that spot. Email above if you want in. First come first serve.

Wouldn't touch Andrew Bynum with a ten foot pole. Russel Westbrook's price is too high for as much time is he's going to miss, and with the uncernaity if he'll even be as good. Basically any injured players are on my do not draft list. Also old guys. No Ray Allen. Pretty much no one on the Nets except maybe Derron Williams for his assists. But as for the rest of the Nets- Pierce, Garnett, etc. not only are they all past their prime, but there are too many mouths to feed on that team.
Also, I will not be drafting Marc Gasol or Serge Ibaka, because they'll be long gone before I'd be willing to draft them. To me those guys are 4th or 5th round picks. What the hub bub is about with them I will never figure out.

Oh, and I should mention that before a manager bailed, we did draft randomizer. The departing manager landed the 12th/13th picks. That will be the slot for the new manager. So if that's not your thing, this is not your league. Just FYI.
