Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Handcuffs are good in a deep league where there aren't a lot of options available on the wire. Of the handcuffs to your RB's, Hillman certainly has the most upside and I think he will get more touches than people think. Anderson has never carried the load for a full season and Hillman was ahead of him before he got hurt and is a better receiver and a slightly better blocker also. anderson is a much better between the tackles runner for sure. I would also consider drafting Herron in a deep league, Gore has been durable but he is 32, has carried a big workload and is definitely in decline.

Your WR's are a little thin, but since you can go with flex it isn't as huge an issue. Your RB's are great and your bench is solid.

I think you are OK, Perriman might work in that 2nd flex if he goes Wk1, if not give Green a shot since Gates is out. You could be stronger at WR, but I like Olsen and Miller to have big years.

You are very weak at RB. Ingram is injury prone and isn't a 3 down back, neither in Morris- even though it is .5 PPR there is still a value on having a back who can catch the ball. You are also weak at TE with Daniels who is going to split reps and is injury prone and aging. Your receivers are excellent and of course Luck is great. Your bench is also pretty solid. Your team should be OK, but don't be surprised if you are using Woodhead a lot more than you expect.

I wouldn't take him in the first round, he had a heavy workload last year and few RB's bounce back from that type of workload. Plus Kelly likes to rotate backs and he has a good backup in Ryan Mathews. Plus before last year Murray had a spotty injury history. I think you might be surprised and get him in the 2nd round, if not there will be similar options available. At #7 I'd go Gronk especially if it is PPR, or one of the top WR's Dez or Julio. Just my opinion.

Pretty solid. Cobb should be good and Robinson is on the rise and could be a solid WR2, though he carries more risk than most WR2's. Not that sold on Agholor yet, but he also has a lot of upside. If it were PPR I'd like Wright, but standard not so much. Floyd has been battling injuries and appears to have lost his job to John Brown. If you have an injury you are in trouble, but your top 3 are OK.

I would wait and see how it shakes out- if McFadden does well (unlikely but possible), they you could maybe trade him for a better backup QB. And you just need a replacement for Peyton on his bye week. Look at who has the best matchup that week among the FA's and take that player.

I think you did a good job, except for the 3 Te's, I would have taken a flier on an upside WR or RB instead. I think you are solid. I would drop Sefarian-Jenkins for Hillman

Kickers are a function of luck for the most part, the difference between the#1 and #12 kickers is about a point a game. You might have caught Vinietieri on a good run but that was just luck. don't know why you drafted both Romo and Ryan, they are pretty equal. I would trade one for a TE upgrade. Your RB's are very good.

You have a lot of the same guys I got last night, I have Green, Evans, Stewart and Decker also. So I would say you have a real good team :)

Don't listen to draft eval. You have a solid team. Hilton is very good and you have big upside receivers in Agholor, Brown and Johnson. Murray and Forte are a solid duo and when Foster comes back that gives you a boost and you can trade to upgrade. I like Olsen also. You are OK, your receivers aren't the best I've ever seen but they are fine, only one I don't care for is Jackson and Edelman is so-so unless it is PPR
- Michael Michael Aug 31, 2015 1:32 PM Flag
With all due respect, not particuliary impressed. Forte and McCoy have low ceilings, and Brees is on the decline. I like Hilton but Adams is being overbought. Graham is good but will see his numbers dip in Seattle. Murray could surprise either up or down. Your bench has no upside except possibly for Tevin Coleman. I just don't see any guys who can blow up with a huge game for you outside of Hilton.

I would keep them for now and see how it shakes out. Watch out for Hillman, he could be a force if Anderson goes down, David Johnson is another one to watch out for behind fragile Andre Ellington, especially if your league is PPR
- Michael Michael Aug 31, 2015 1:28 PM Flag
I would take best available- you might be better off taking 2 stud WR's then drafting a bunch of RB's figuring one would come through- guys to consider in the 3/4 turn are Hyde, Stewart, L Murray, Abdullah- well maybe not Abdullah. But likely you are looking at RB/WR, someone like Forte or CJ Anderson.
