    So I have a pretty good situation going as I'm 10-0 so far and have been offered Luck who is expected back after what will be my bye week 1st round of the playoffs. So far I've made 2 pretty big trades (Hyde for Martavious Bryant in week 4 & Matt Ryan/Ryan Matthews for Adrian Peterson 2 weeks ago after I lost Laveon Bell) and think this might payoff in the long run too. Would you trade Taylor, West and Tate for Luck, Bernard and Rishard Mathews? Here's my team:

    QB- Tom Brady
    QB- Jay Cutler
    WR- Stefon Diggs
    WR- Emmanual Sanders
    WR- Golden Tate
    RB- Todd Gurley
    RB- Adrian Peterson
    TE- Greg Olson
    K- Blair Walsh
    K- Steven Haushka
    DEF- STL
    DB- Deone Buchannon
    LB- Paul Plusnusky

    BN- Tyrodd Taylor
    BN- Charcandarick West
    BN- Odell Beckham JR (Bye)
    BN- Martavious Bryant (Bye)
    BN- Empty
    IR- Laveon Bell

    Is trading for Luck too much of a gamble or the right move???

    Worth dropping a player for a DB tonight?

    That's what I ended up doing, Merryweather's 8 and ODB's 12.10 got the deal done...

  • So I'm down 19 points with Beckham as the only player left on my roster and I have an open DB spot as well. No PPR but there are some extra bonus points awarded. 40+ yard reception, 50+ yard reception, 100 receiving yards, 150 yards, etc... Currently 5-0 so I might just ride it out without a DB this week...
    Here is who's available to cut-
    QB- Cutler (we start 2 QB's and I have Brady and Ryan)
    RB- Abdullah ( Started C. West and L. Bell, Gurley is on Bench but I'm not gonna cut him)
    WR- M. Bryant (not cutting him either obviously traded Hyde last week for him, started Boldin, Beckham and Sanders)
    TE- Julius Thomas (have Olson)
    DEF- St Louis (Picked up Jets to start for STL on bye week)

    Basically I think my best option is cut Abdullah or just roll without a DB, what would you do?

    I have been offered Gronk, Golden Tate and Kaepernick for Tom Brady and Greg Olson. We start 2 QB's and 2 K and Passing TD's are worth 6 so I'm a lil skeptical. 10 Team H2H
    QB- Matt Ryan
    QB- Tom Brady
    WR- Odell Beckham JR
    WR- Emmanuel Sanders
    WR- Torrey Smith
    RB- Carlos Hyde
    RB- Ameer Abdullah
    TE- Greg Olson
    K- Steven Hauschka
    K- Zach #$%$
    DEF- STL
    DB- TJ McDonald
    LB- Paul Posluszny

    BN- Tre Mason
    BN- Todd Gurley
    BN- LeVeon Bell
    BN- Jay Cutler
    BN- Tyler Lockett

    I tried to counter with Brady, Olson and his choice of Torrey Smith or Ameer Abdullah for Gronk, AJ Green and Kaep, he declined. (His bench RB is CJ spiller no one else, thought he'd take it and his other 2 QBs besides Kaep are Flacco and Fitzpatrick) Would you make the trade of Olson and Brady for Tate, Kaep and Gronk or keep pushing my offer or neither?

    If you're super concerned with the 1st 2 weeks I can see how'd you do this, but J Stew will not stay healthy long term, If you pull the trigger drop Johnson and pick up Artis-Payne for when Stewart's injury inevitably happens...

    Sorry there's 2 White's Im thinking of dropping Roddy

    This is the 1st year in our keeper league, we get to keep players where they were drafted, it's a 10 team H2H and FA's will be kept in the 11th round. I don't currently have a DB and am really unsure of whom to drop.... Here is my team and the rounds they were drafted in and where they can be kept next year. I got booted after round 5 of the draft and couldn't get back in until my last pick in Green-Beckham so I've made several changes so far. I'm leaning towards dropping White and seeing what the youngsters can do, in hopes of great keeper value in the future, how about you? Thanks in advance

    QB- Eli Manning (6th)
    WR- Brandon Mardhall (4th)
    WR- Vincent Jackson (7th)
    WR- Pierre Garcon (13th)
    RB- Jamal Charles (1st)
    RB- Justin Forsett (2nd)
    TE- Jimmy Graham (3rd)
    DEF- Philly (10th)
    K- Phil Dawson (FA-11th)
    LB- Bobby Wagner (FA-11th)

    BN- Todd Gurley (5th)
    BN- Dorial Green-Beckham (16th)
    BN- Ty Montgomery (FA-11th)
    BN- Matt Jones (FA-11th)
    BN- Kevin White (16th, claimed off waivers so I get drafted round value still)
    BN- Roddy White (8th)
