    Should I do this trade?

    by Noah S Sep 6, 2015 5:32 PM
    Corey D. Corey D. Sep 6, 2015 6:01 PM Flag

    No way. You want to leave your RBs as Randle (RBBC), Blount (who knows with the Pats?), Mason (backup) and Mathews (backup)? That's a recipe for disaster. And your WRs are already plenty good enough. You have no need for Cooks. This trade makes no sense. You're destroying your RB corps for the sake of a guy who would be your No. 3 WR.

    Who would you take 1st overall???!

    Why would you exclude Lacy from this conversation? I'd absolutely take him No. 1 overall, especially with Jordy gone. I think Lacy will be more active as a pass catcher this season. Personally, I'd go Lacy 1, Peterson 2, Bell 3. I don't like the two-game suspension for Bell.

    M.Bryant and Abdullah for Jimmy Graham?

    by JOHN Sep 6, 2015 4:38 PM
    Corey D. Corey D. Sep 6, 2015 4:52 PM Flag

    Yikes. Your RBs are already bad, and getting rid of Abdullah would make things worse. I wouldn't do it, since Graham is too much of an unknown on a new team.

  • The Titans put Cobb on the IR/designated to return list, and traded for Terrance West. With Sankey constantly looking awful, that starting job is there for the taking. It's obviously not a great gig, but a starter at least provides some depth. Would you drop Cody Latimer for West? Latimer is my No. 6 WR, behind Hilton, Cooks, Cooper, Maclin and Steve Smith.

    And if you would drop Latimer for a RB, would you rather focus on West or Christine Michael, who was just traded to the Cowboys? That's obviously a better situation behind that incredible O-Line, but ESPN is reporting that the Cowboys just acquired him for depth and that he's not a direct threat to the Randle/McFadden combo, barring injury.

  • With the Cowboys trading for Christine Michael, is he worth a speculative pickup on the wire? There's no telling what's going to happen with Dallas' backfield, but them feeling the need to trade for Michael is not a great vote of confidence in Randle. And there's no way McFadden stays healthy. The guy I'd be dropping to get Michael is Cody Latimer, who had a rough preseason and is my No. 6 WR (behind Hilton, Cooks, Cooper, Maclin and Steve Smith, so I'm pretty strong there).

    How does this team look?

    by Corey D. Sep 5, 2015 10:32 PM
    Corey D. Corey D. Sep 6, 2015 3:28 PM Flag

    Cool, thanks. I'm definitely hoping the trio of Cooks, Cooper and Gordon turn in good seasons and become solid keepers.

  • With the Cowboys trading for Michael, their backfield just got even more complicated. Is Michael worth a speculative pickup just in case he turns out to be the starter in Dallas? Cody Latimer is the only player on my roster I could drop for Michael. Would it be worth it?

    Brandon Coleman

    by Titanius M Sep 5, 2015 10:33 PM
    Corey D. Corey D. Sep 5, 2015 10:36 PM Flag

    He's a total unknown. I would never drop a known quantity to pick him up, since he's a total crapshoot. But if you're in a deeper league and have a random guy at the bottom of your bench, then Coleman is worth a just-in-case stash.

  • It's a 10-team keeper league, standard scoring (though QBs get 5 points per passing TD), non-PPR.

    QB - Ryan (Romo)
    RB - Lacy, Lamar Miller (Melvin Gordon, Woodhead)
    WR - Hilton, Cooks, Amari Cooper (Maclin, Steve Smith, Latimer)
    TE- Dwayne Allen (Delanie Walker)
    K- Parkey
    DEF - Texans

    Rate this 8-player trade

    by Corey D. Sep 5, 2015 9:40 PM
    Corey D. Corey D. Sep 5, 2015 10:07 PM Flag

    I can respect that. I'm taking a risk on Cooks being an elite fantasy WR, but I disagree about Maclin. I think that, paired with Andy Reid's offense, Maclin is going to get an insane number of targets this year and will turn that into plenty of yardage. Maclin is also just insurance in case Cooks does flame out.

    My other WRs are Hilton, Amari Cooper and Steve Smith, so Maclin won't even need to start every week. He's mostly just protection for bye weeks or injuries. And there was no way I could rely on Melvin Gordon being an every-week starter from the get-go. If he turns out to be a reliable guy, that's great and I can try trading Gordon or Miller. But I just really, REALLY didn't like the idea of relying on Gordon for consistent production.

  • Just pulled off a huge 8-player trade and curiosity what you guys think of my team now.

    QB - Ryan (Romo)
    RB - Lacy, Lamar Miller (Melvin Gordon, Woodhead)
    WR - Hilton, Cooks, Amari Cooper (Maclin, Steve Smith, Latimer)
    TE - Dwayne Allen (Delanie Walker)
    K- Parkey
    DEF - Texans

    My main weakness is pretty clearly TE. There's a guy in our league who got disconnected during the draft and autodrafted Jimmy Graham despite already having Gronk, so I was thinking of trying to put together a package to get Graham. But as my team stands now, what do you think?

  • It's rare to have an 8-player trade before the season even starts, but that's how this one worked out just to make sure it was pretty even. So here's the trade:

    I receive:
    Brandin Cooks
    Lamar Miller
    Jeremy Maclin
    Tony Romo

    I lose:
    Odell Beckham
    Ben Roethlisberger
    LeGarrette Blount
    Charles Johnson

    It was tough to give up Beckham, but I think Cooks will have a big year and Maclin should be a target monster too. I also have Matt Ryan, so losing Big Ben isn't as big of a loss. Now I can pick between Romo and Ryan each week based on matchups. The main focus of this deal for me was Miller, because my RB depth was by far my biggest weakness. My RBs are now Lacy, Miller, Melvin Gordon and Woodhead. So what do you guys think of this deal?

  • We finished our keeper league draft and I'm wondering how you guys think this looks. It's a 10-team, standard scoring league. No PPR.

    QB - Big Ben (Matt Ryan)
    RB - Lacy, Lamar Miller (Melvin Gordon, Woodhead)
    WR- Hilton, Cooks, Amari Cooper (Maclin, Charles Johnson, Latimer)
    TE - Dwayne Allen (Delanie Walker)
    DEF - Texans
    K - Parkey

    I'm weak at TE and could use another RB (tried trading for Tevin Coleman, didn't work), but I think this is at least a pretty solid start. A couple teams went with just one QB, so I'm one injury away from Matt Ryan becoming a solid trade piece too.

    First pick dilemma

    by Jay Dubbs Sep 2, 2015 7:44 PM
    Corey D. Corey D. Sep 2, 2015 7:53 PM Flag

    Personally, in a PPR league I would go Lacy with the No. 1 pick. He has underrated hands and gets a decent number of receptions. Plus I think he's the most reliable option of the Top 3. He really doesn't have any significant downside or question mark, while Bell (suspension) and Peterson (year off) do. As for the turn in Rounds 2-3, I would go 1 WR, 1 RB. If you wait until the end of Round 4 to draft your No. 2 RB, you're going to be left with scraps. The quality at RB drops dramatically and quickly, while WR value stays pretty solid until the middle rounds. And you do not want terrible RB depth.

    I just like that you spelled Heath Miller's name "Health" ... twice.

    Coleman or Latimer?

    by Dcoggs Sep 2, 2015 6:34 PM
    Corey D. Corey D. Sep 2, 2015 6:50 PM Flag

    Are you talking about Tevin Coleman? Because the answer is obviously him. Latimer will only have significant late-season production if Thomas or Sanders get hurt, while Coleman might be the starter in Atlanta all on his own. This one is a no-brainer.

    And now that I've said this, someone just went and grabbed Tannehill. So he's not available anymore, but there are still a couple serviceable backups.

    Well it's 10 teams, just several went with only one QB. With Arian Foster being his No. 4 RB, I'd say he's pretty damn stacked. He also has Hillman and Jonas Gray. Having Gray is part of the reason I thought he might bite on Blount. This still didn't provide an answer to the actual question: Is this a worthwhile trade? And do you think it's even enough that it would be appealing to him too?

    Did I do as well as I think I did (Standard league)

    by Tim Sep 2, 2015 2:19 PM
    Corey D. Corey D. Sep 2, 2015 3:52 PM Flag

    Sorry man, but that RB depth is BRUTAL. Your whole season now rests on the health of Arian Foster, which is not a position I'd like to be in.

    D Parker or Bradford

    by Darin Sep 2, 2015 12:48 PM
    Corey D. Corey D. Sep 2, 2015 3:43 PM Flag

    I'll pretty much echo exactly what JAH said above. Bradford is the higher risk, but much higher reward pick. Parker isn't healthy and likely won't even start being productive until a few weeks into the season. By then, you can have a better gauge on how good Bradford looks. So I'd pick up Bradford now, and then re-evaluate in Week 3 or so and decide if you want to drop him for Parker. Bradford might be hurt by then anyway, making the decision easy.
