Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

In trade's that involve such similarly ranked players, i go with the one's who are the more talented. AP and Calvin are more talented than Marashall and Lynch. I also tend to put minimal emphasis on schedule because of the talent they possess.
I would definitely do this trade if i was getting AP/Megatron.
My trade deadline is less than 24 hours away and i have been trying to get White all week. WR2 is my weakest spot and i dont feel comfortable that i can beat one of the two team's ahead of me in the playoffs if both team's play at 100% of their capabilities.
12 team 0.5 PPR league
The dilemma with this trade is that i would be forced to play either Starks or Shorts for the remainder of the season in my last W/R/T spot. Nelson+White would obviously give me a top five receiving duo, but the overall depth of my team suffers.
Gates and Smith could have also turned a corner and that is also giving me pause to execute this trade.

Give him Cobb. Nelson will reassert himself as the best/most productive receiver in GB.
McFadden won't be back until your fantasy playoffs are over. That is how he operates.
I am not a huge fan of Gore, but it sure beat's seeing McFadden sitting on your bench while you read Rotowire and see excuse #4242442 about McFadden and why he still isn't playing.

Jaquizz and Thomas. Rodgers might get some more snaps if Turner continue's to play like garbage.
Rest are pretty terrible, but Thomas probably has the most upside since he is a goal line back.

Reece. He should be startable until week 14. Darren McFadden is Mr. Glass from Unbreakable. Get's hurt a lot and take's two years to get healthy.
I get White
I give up Brandon Lloyd, Torrey Smith and Antonio Gates.
Current roster is
Doing that trade forces me to play Starks and Cecil Shorts ROS.
Good or bad trade? I feel like i am overpaying.

How is this even debatable? You always start your studs. Raider's defense has been playing worse than NO's so that make's it even easier. They have given up 97 points in two weeks against Josh Freeman/Doug Martin and Joe Flacco/Ray Rice.

So the only kicker available was Succop? Or did he add and drop every kicker on Saturday night so they wouldn't count as FA's and the waiver wire would have prevented him from picking up the player before the game?
It's fair if he did that.
I try to do this every week if i am going against someone who has a bye week player and doesn't have an available player on his bench. Is it lame? of course, but considering how little effort it take's to pick up a FA and put him in your lineup, it should never come down to it.

Ohhh yeah, i forgot Palmer was playing NO this week. Yeah play him this Sunday 100%. NO's defense make's everyone look good.

It's not a terrible pick. All three option's are viable bye week fillers.
If you are planning to use any of these QB's ROS, you are probably screwed unless you have a very good team.
Palmer isn't bad, but the problem with all the QB's left, is how inconsistent they can be.
I would probably play Dalton rest of season because he seems like the safer pick. Flacco has been dominant at home so maybe play him when he is at home. That seem's like too much effort though considering how mediocre most of these QB's are.
Eli should pick it up after his bye week. Don't bother worrying about it until you see how Eli does after his bye week. Nick's should be close to 100% and that should give him another weapon to throw to.

29 carries for 101 yards. 3.5 YPC with 17 of his rushing yards coming from OT.
His season average is 3.7
He sucked, but his inflated numbers mask that. Sell high if you can find someone dumb enough to overpay.
He is still a flex play in 12 team leagues.
- Fisnik Fisnik Nov 13, 2012 1:47 AM Flag
You definitely aren't playing Ponder since he is on a bye week too.
Both Flacco and Dalton can be very inconsistent. Flacco has Pitt and Dalton has KC.
Dalton is probably the safest choice, but both are capable of doing nothing.

Seriously? You obviously do that trade. Fitzgerald is on a terrible team with a terrible QB. CJ is decent, but getting Brees and replacing him over Freeman is huge. It's all about making sure you have as many of the best possible player's in their respective positions. #2 QB top twenty RB/top twenty WR. The decision is made way easier by having Decker and Murray on your bench. You can play Felix Jones till Murray comes back.

Nope. Rashad Jennings is terrible. RB1's are worth a ton in 12 team leagues. I know they are in my 12 team league. I offered Torrey Smith+McGahee for Forte and got turned down.
Colston for Doug Martin or Forte is laughable even if Cutler is out for a few weeks.
Martin is a top five back ATM. He won't finish in the top five, but his value is sky high atm even with this week's normal performance.

Who is Randolph? You probably mean Kyle Rudolph.
I would give the edge to Pettigrew. If Rudolph show's some consistency after the bye, i would not be opposed to starting him over Pettigrew.
Rudolph really should have been doing better these past few weeks. AP was just destroying every defense so Rudolph should have been very productive. I would only start Rudolph in the playoffs if he did well for the majority of the regular season. I am a big fan of consistency in the playoffs and his risk/reward isn't high enough to warrant starting him if he continues to be streaky.
Pettigrew should get you 7-10 points a week (my league atleast 0.5PPR) and hopefully a TD or two for the rest of the season.

They have 24 in my league and that number is accurate in my league.
Six per defensive TD
six per kick/punt return TD
two per INT
two per fumble recovery
one per sack
21-27 allowed should net zero points total.
Two defensive TD's = twelve points (Six points per)
one kickoff return for a TD = six points
two sacks = two points
one fumble = two points
one int = two points
21-27 points allowed = zero points
= 24 points

Ohhh didn't read the part where you were offered Rodgers. Ehhh still wouldnt do it just because i am risk averse and would not want a bunch of question mark's on my team a few weeks before the playoffs.
