  • That one for one deal was proposed to me in my winner's league. Should I accept it?

  • Jonathan M by Jonathan M Dec 22, 2012 12:03 PM Flag

    I'm in the finals of my H2H public league and I'm having trouble deciding who to start at RB. I'm starting DeMarco Murray for sure but at the 2nd RB position should I start Leshoure (against Atlanta), Turner (against Detroit) or Bush (against Buffalo)?

    All advice is appreciated, thank you!

  • I have too many running backs and my receivers are lacklustre. Which RBs should I give up and who should i go after in terms of receivers?

    RBs:
    Chris Johnson
    DeMarco Murray
    Fred Jackson
    Michael Turner
    Mikel Leshoure

    WRs:
    AJ Green
    Vincent Jackson
    Stevie Johnson
    Denarius Moore

    All advice is appreciated, thank you!!

    Which 2 running backs should I use as my backups: Mikel Leshoure, Cedric Benson or DeAngelo Williams?

    Leshoure is on the waiver wire and I'm thinking of adding him.

    All advice is appreciated!

  • I have great at RB, something at which I'm lacking in WR. I want to trade one of my RBs and my backup WR (Greg Little) for a better backup WR. Which RB should I trade away?

    My RBs are as follows:
    Arian Foster
    Jamaal Charles
    Doug Martin
    Benjarvus Green-Ellis

    I'm debating between Martin and Green-Ellis. In my opinion, Green-Ellis is the most underrated RB in the league but at the same time I have high expectations for Martin, so I am torn. Which do you think I should trade?

    All advice is appreciated, thank you.

  • My H2H public league just drafted and I'm wondering how you think I did.

    My team is as follows:

    PG Jrue Holiday
    SG Kobe Bryant
    G Manu Ginobli
    SF Jared Dudley
    PF Dirk Nowitzki
    F David West
    C Al Horford
    C Joakim Noah
    UTIL Darren Collison
    UTIL Kemba Walker
    BN Jonas Valanciunas
    BN Bradley Beal
    BN Kawhi Leonard

    The biggest weakness I can think of is that I need more big men!

    All advice is appreciated, thank you!

  • Hi,

    For whatever reason Matt Shaub went undrafted and I'm considering picking him up and I'm not sure whether I should have more depth at QB, WR or RB. I think overall my team is pretty solid but I'm thinking of adding Shaub for depth at QB. My question is should I pick him up? If so, should I drop either Crabtree or Williams?

    My team is as follows:

    QB - Matthew Stafford
    WR - Mike Wallace
    WR - Dez Bryant
    WR - Vincent Jackson
    RB - Matt Forte
    RB - Trent Richardson
    TE - Vernon Davis
    K - Dan Bailey
    DEF - Baltimore
    BN - RG3
    BN - Greg Little
    BN - Michael Crabtree
    BN - Michael Turner
    BN - DeAngelo Williams

    *Note: the league is a H2H public league, so normal positions and normal points*

    ***DRAFTING TOO MANY PLAYERS FROM ONE TEAM***

    It's a H2H public league, so standard categories and standard positions. My plan was to keep them and see what happens when the season starts.

  • I drafted too many Red Wings players and I'm wondering whether I should trade some of them for other players or see what happens during the season (assuming there is a season).

    The Red Wings players I drafted are Howard, Zetterberg, Datsyuk and Franzen.

    For the record I'm not a Red Wings fan, they were just the best available players at the time.

    All advice is appreciated, thank you!!

    ***HOW DID I DRAFT?***

    I wasn't looking to draft that many Wings players but when it came down to it they were the best available players in the time of need. As for dmen, I don't value them very highly. Unless you get superstar dmen such as Letang or Weber or Chara, etc. they could be detrimental to the team. I usually end up adding a break out player winding up with 2 or 3 dmen at the end of the year. I took a risk on Varly and Hiller but I believe that they both have solid teams in front of them and I have fairly high expectations for both of them.

    LW - Pavel Datsyuk
    RW - Tyler Seguin

    D - Justin Schultz
    D - Ryan Ellis
    G - Jimmy Howard
    G - Semyon Varlamov
    BN - Jeff Carter
    BN - Joffrey Lupul
    BN - Steve Downie
    BN - Jonas HIller

    All advice is appreciated, thank you!

    I know you don't get points for bench players, but happens if one of my starters gets injured or during bye weeks? I don't want to be screwed if an injury happens or whatnot. I know there will be breakout players and I'm usually lucky in getting them but I want to have a backup plan just in case.

    That's exactly what my dilemma is. I'm trying to see what I can do in terms of upgrading at WR and RB. As well, I'm trying to gett Jacob Tamme as my backup TE.

  • Jonathan M by Jonathan M Jul 19, 2012 7:24 PM Flag

    I'm in a winners league and I forgot to show up to the draft. My starts are in my opinion are really good, however my bench players are really bad. I'm wondering if I should downgrade some of my starters in order to have a better bench.

    My team is as follows:

    QB - Michael Vick
    WR - Larry Fitzgerald
    WR - Hakeem Nicks
    WR - Jeremy Maclin
    RB - Ryan Matthews
    RB - Matt Forte
    TE - Jermichael Finley
    K - David Akers
    DEF - Pittsburgh
    BN - Jay Cutler
    BN - Santana Moss
    BN - Greg Little
    BN - Peyton Hillis
    BN - DeAngelo Williams
    BN - Owen Daniels

    Let me know what you guys think I should do. Thanks in advanced!
