    Green is 4th best. I wouldn't hesitate to pick Dez over him as well.

    Good trades for RB depth?

    Im high on Williams so if possible I wouldn't trade him. I don't really see any of the above trades to give you depth at RB with the exception of offer 3, but would you really want to get rid of Charles? Its tempting but I don't think I would do it in the end. things can happen with injuries and you could grab someone off FA. Stacey comes to mind from last year. Roughly speaking Jeffrey and Nelson have the same value. I do like Nelson a bit more though. I would try Jeffreye first and if there is no takers then if you are really truly concerned about your depth then go ahead and put Nelson up for trade but just don't make a trade because you feel a need to get another back. Get the same value out of the trade.

    Did I do enough to win my league?

    i guess you don't realize that the value of a WR doesn't change in a standard league from ppr when all the value is changed for a RB in a PPR league. yeah I have Delanie Walker. who cares. He will get me a good amount of TDs. Will I start him every week no, but all I need is just 1 god week out of him. Why would it matter at all to draft a WR a little earlier when again the value of WRs does not change in a ppr

    Sometimes you gotta take a leap of faith. If i had your team I would actually go ahead and take the trade. I think Evans is the rookie wideout to have this season. He has Vincent Jackson and a pretty good RB with him. He won't get double teamed with seeing single converge all year. In the end your best option is your instinct.

    if you really want depth then just trade Jeffrey and try and get Bernard or Murray or Ball. Something like that. even if you get rid of Jeffrey then you would still have Nelson, Johnson, and Williams as a top 3 which is still a good core.

  • QB - Matt Ryan, Tony Romo
    WR - Victor Cruz, Michael Floyd, Kendall Wright, Markus Wheaton
    RB - Matt Forte, Montee Ball, LeVeon Bell, Carlos Hyde, Darren Sproles, Jonathan Grimes
    TE - Greg Olsen, Delanie Walker
    K - Robbie Gould
    DEF - St. Louis Rams, New England Patriots

    Was also thinking of dropping probably Grimes for Marvin Jones even though he is out till week 5 at least.

    10 team PPR

    RB - Matt Forte, Montee Ball, LeVeon Bell, Carlos Hyde, Darren Sproles, Jonathan Grimes

    Any advice would help whether it be trade proposals or picking up FA.

    Thank You

    Which Team Would You Rather have?

    by Jackson Aug 29, 2014 12:34 PM
    Ben Johnson Ben Johnson Aug 29, 2014 12:43 PM Flag

    in order, Team B, Team A, Team C

    Team B has the better depth and talent around it. Ryan does better than last year. Ellington and Bernard are 2nd and 3rd round picks respectively and Green and Cobb are the same. Might not have the best TE on B but when you don't have Graham or Thomas then most of them are the same. Team A is a little tempting with the insane combination of Brees and Graham but outside of them you have some injury risk and some unproven players. would be to risky for me. And team C has nothing to offer at RB, in my opinion. Just not high at all on Spiller or Stacey. WR is godly, and QBs are very good but when you have very risky players at RB its hard to be able to say that that team will be any good.

    Which QB?

    by Gregory Aug 29, 2014 12:02 PM
    Ben Johnson Ben Johnson Aug 29, 2014 12:24 PM Flag

    Brady is number 1 i agree with viderant with that. when it comes to Newton and Foles it gets tough. Viderant states that Newton has nothing and his numbers have not gone up yet Newton has been a to 5 fantasy QB since he came into the league. Foles has the upside with him for sure in comparison to Newton while Newton does not have as many weapons around him. But I would still put Newton over Foles due to his track record with what he has had and still managing a top 5 performance every year.

    in Conclusion….. Brady, Newton, Foles.

    PPR 10 team league. QB-WR-WR-RB-RB-TE-W/R/T-K-DEF

    1st pick And I already know none of y'all would pick Forte with first pick but I did.

    QB - Ryan, Romo
    WR - Cruz, Floyd, Wright, Wheaton
    RB - Forte, Ball, Bell, Hyde, Sproles, Grimes
    TE - Olsen, Walker
    K - Gould
    DEF - Rams, Patriots

    Almost tempted to try and see if I can trade for a better 4th RB that starts and pick up Marvin Jones off FA but any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    I did have first pick and did pick Forte. I kno0w that is not who probably 99.99% of you would have taken but i have my reasons. Its a PPR league. Just wondeering what I may need to do to make the team better?

    picked 1st.... i know most people would pick Charles or McCoy in ppr 1st but I definitly wasnt picking Charles due to him finishing 1st among RBs last season and i dont pick the best at a position from previous year. I just have a really good feeling about Forte.
