    Week 1 flex spot????????????

    by Dan 10 hours ago

    Matchups?

  • John Brown, Stevie Johnson, Marcus Wheaton?

  • I got ranked 10th last year.......won the 'ship', of course that took some waiver wire savvy, but the bottom line is that those Yahoo rankings are a joke.

    Your team is solid, and as we all know injuries will play a huge part in your success, but otherwise you should contend. Couple things though: I know Davis is a great cuff to have, but he rode my bench almost all year last season, I wouldn't make that decision again. Charles isn't as injury prone as you think, and Davis will be virtually worthless if Charles stays healthy. I'd waive him and pick u a guy that will actually have an impact, injury or not, a guy like Ronnie Hillman comes to mind.

    Trade Alfred Morris and Alshon Jeffery?

    Morris is a bell cow, but I would be worried about that QB situation too.

    You won't get Murray for Morris, unless the guy is really stupid, but you could swing a deal for Ivory or Ellington for sure, they will think it's an upgrade, even though it's really not.

    As far as Jeffery, what do you want in return for him, another WR, you didn't say?

    Better TE Option

    Thanks, it's my starters I'm more worried about, lol! Yeah, I think the Vikes are going to surprise some folks this year, and I might use TB instead of Eli at some point during the season, we'll see how it goes.

    I actually started off with ASJ as my TE, but I'm worried about rookie mistakes at QB, even though Winston should be fine in the long run.

    Grabbing Olsen for Allen is a great move IMO. Olsen was my TE last year when I won the 'ship', and he is as solid as they come.

    Trade Devante Adams........

    I'm hoping like all hell that Cobb's injury is minor, I have him too Steve, and last year I won the 'ship' with a same team dual WR combo (Thomas and Sanders). But unlike Sanders, Adams is still an unproven commodity, so I thought maybe I might capitalize on his current value.

    But I think you are right......I'll hold tight and see what develops, thanks again.

    need help replacing nelson

    You can't replace Jordy, but if you luck out you could find some decent value via trade or the waiver wire.

    Help with making a trade

    by Brian Aug 28, 2015 11:04 AM
    Greg Greg Aug 30, 2015 9:40 AM Flag

    What TE's are left on waivers, you might have a hidden gem in there, even if he's not on the level of an Olsen.

    You are fairly light at WR, so trading one right now is not advisable, IMO. And since Foster is a ???, that really only leaves you 3 RB's right now, and I doubt that anybody would view a trade offer involving Foster, as anything but you trying to dump him.

  • .......while he is a hot prospect?

    I could use a solid RB2, and there is no telling if he will live up to all this new hype, the Packers do have other WR options for AR to utilize even though I realize that Adams is currently WR2.

    Just thinking that Adams might not live up to all that hype, but I also don't want to toss away a potential bust out player either.

    Thanks for the advice in advance.

    Better TE Option

    by Greg Aug 30, 2015 7:40 AM
    Greg Greg Aug 30, 2015 9:30 AM Flag

    Thanx Steve...I'm actually leaning toward keeping Rudolph myself, especially with AP back, and Teddy B. looking so good.

    I have Crosby as my K so I don't want to drop him, and believe it or not, I don't really have any drop-able guys on my bench, at least I don't think so anyway (Edelman, Cruz, Wheaton, Gio, L. Murray, T. Bridgewater), so it's either I snag him or let it play out.

    I think I'll hold tight for now, thanks for the input.

    Picking a head coach

    by Misila Aug 29, 2015 4:43 PM
    Greg Greg Aug 30, 2015 8:00 AM Flag

    I've never heard of that Misila, how can a HC carry any value, and what draft actually includes head coaches?

    Can you give some more details about this league?

    Rank These RB's - PPR

    by Bulldozier1963 Aug 29, 2015 7:23 PM
    Greg Greg Aug 30, 2015 7:57 AM Flag

    I disagree w/snaily28 about Forsett, his production should be very similar to last season, no reason to think otherwise.

    Forsett
    Miller/Hyde
    Stewart
    Yeldon
    Randle
    Vereen
    Spiller
    Woodhead

    If you are looking for a clear RB2/3, then Forsett and Miller are your guys. But keep an eye on how Hyde is doing, Yeldon too, those guys could really get you some volume as well.

    8.3 (scale of 1-10).................I think Eli could have his most productive season, and Tannehill is underrated. Your RB's, aside from AP, is the only weak spot, you need to work a trade or the waiver wire for another viable option. I am not big on Morris because the Wash. QB situation is in flux, even though he is a clear bell cow RB.

    Not a big Jeffery guy, but he is still worth having, at least as a WR3. Green and Hopkins could have BIG seasons, and Landry will be a PPR machine. You lucked out drafting Adams (so did I BTW), so your WR's look really good........adding a 'sleeper' might be a good idea.

    Walker is OK at TE, but keep your eyes open to upgrade, grab Gates if he went undrafted. K should be fine, and who knows which D will rise, I just stream them.

    Who is gonna be the starter this season?

    by Geoff Aug 30, 2015 6:50 AM
    Greg Greg Aug 30, 2015 7:42 AM Flag

    I can't imagine McFadden being the starter, at least not at the beginning of the season.

  • My draft strat doesn't place very high importance on TE. Of course there is great value in owning Gronk, and maybe Graham, Olsen, but after that it pretty much levels off, so I'm usually not going to waste a high pick on one.

    That said, of course I am still looking for value, and maybe a sleeper here and there. I drafted ASJ but dropped him for Kyle Rudolph. ASJ 'could' do well, but I'd rather go with Bridgewater in his 2nd season, as opposed to Winston in his first season, although both TE's could do pretty well.

    Well, Tyler Eiffert just became available on waivers, and I was wondering if I should drop Rudolph for him. Eiffert can become a favorite target of Dalton's pretty quickly, and could be very effective in the RZ, I'm just not certain that he has more potential than Rudolph does.

    Any thoughts? Someone is bound to scoop him up off waivers if I don't act soon.
