Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
In a standard 10-team H2H league and was wondering if my team is a title contender. Kind of worried about it.
PG - CP3, Lillard, Lawson, Rose
SG - Reggie Jackson, Patrick Beverly, JR Smith
SF - Batum, Jabari Parker, Paul Pierce
PF - Al Jeff, Favors, Amir Johnson,
C - Brook Lopez, Jordan Hill
So is this team a title contender? If not, where should I improve and how? Thanks!

Dude I had a brain fart..I apologize! Oladipo is out indefinitely, that's what i meant. Don't know what I was thinking when I said out for the year. My bad

Well when it comes to sleepers, I meant they are being drafted late and they could surpass their draft day projected value...busts vice-versa. That's my opinion but I agree with what you say.
With Oladipo now out for the year, should my 3 keepers be Lillard, Rose, and Lopez? Or go Lillard, take a risk on either Rose or Lopez, and then go West or Varejao? Thanks!
Trying to compile a list of sleepers and busts, what do you think?
Do you agree with this list? Also I need 2 keepers from the following...which two would you pick?
Derrick Rose - $8, Brook Lopez - $4, David West - $7,Victor Oladipo - $16, Larry Sanders - $35, Anderson Varejao - $1. I'm already keeping Lillard at $4 and just need two more...thanks!

I'd start Brady despite the weather....don't trust Stafford without Megatron. I'd also play Amaro...the thing is I have no idea how bad the weather is. If it's a massive downpour where the players may slip and whatnot, maybe I'd got Stafford and Miller to be safe. But if it's playable conditions, I'd still play Brady and Amaro

Houston plays Tennesse week 8 which I feel is a solid matchup although it's on the road. Baltimore is also available. You think based on tonight's result, I should add Romo over Mason or defenses and drop Asiata? And I will take a look at the post
In a 10-team H2H league I'm 4-2 (3rd, 6-team playoff) and am thinking of dropping Matt Asiata...however he does still have value as a goal-line back in case one of my guys gets hurt so I'm unsure if I should drop him for the following players.
Tre Mason - I've been big on this guy before the season started and I have a feeling he'll be the guy in STL as the other Stacy and Cunningham seem to be plodders..he finally got a shot but I'm unsure if this is the week he becomes the guy. I could leave him and throw an FAAB on him next week (I have $58 left).
Tony Romo - I have Matt Ryan but I don't know if I trust him in Baltimore and Romo could have a nice week.
HOU or CHI D - I have SF Def but I'm unsure if I can start them this week against Denver. They have a bye next week as well so I'd probably want a defense for the next 2 weeks if I choose to go this route.
My RBs are Foster, Morris, Gore, Asiata, Antone Smith. I suppose I could wait to see what happens tonight in the NE-NYJ (my opponent has Gostkowski) and if Gostkowski has a nice game, I could add Romo or a def to try and get those pts. But do you think Asiata is worth dropping for Mason, Romo, HOU D, or CHI D? Thanks!

I think I'd take it as I view Bernard and Lacy as more or less the same and Ivory has much more value than Starks. I got offered Jonathan Stewart for Chris Johnson? Who would you rather have?

Ertz could be like Kelce but Miller might be alright. Give Ertz a week, if he does bad then can drop him for H. Miller.

I replied to your response to me but assuming you didn't see, I'll post here. I'd drop Dalton since I'm sure no one would rush to pick him up and even if they do, there are tons of servicable QBs you could use that week. Ertz has upside so you don't want to rush to drop him...give him at least another week. Btw, I've been offered Jonathan Stewart for Chris Johnson, would you take it? I feel like I should since Stewart at least is starting and may be more useful on a bye week than Johnson who's back up to Ivory on a terrible Jets offense.

I got offered Jonathan Stewart for Chris Johnson...would you take that? I feel like I should since Stewart is starting and I don't expect much out of either...but Stewart at least has some upside as opposed to the Jets offense which Johnson is the #2 RB in. I'll reply on your post in case you don't see this as well but I'd drop Dalton...Dalton has a great matchup but I don't know if anyone will rush to pick him up so early. If they do, my apologies but I'm sure there's other QBs you could target that week. Ertz could be a servicable TE so I get not wanting to drop him...if he isn't by this week or next, just drop him for Dalton or another backup QB.

My team is QB - Ryan, WR - Jordy Nelson, Steve Smith, RB - Foster, Gore, TE - Heath Miller, W/R - Morris, W/R/T - Andre Johnson, BN - Witten, Kendall Wright, Terrance Williams, Asiata, Josh Gordon, Chris Johnson. Given that, did I make good keeper trades? Note I might be trading C. Johnson for Jonathan Stewart just because of bye week fill-in matchups
Well I'm 4-1 in my 10-team H2H 0.5 PPR league which is a keeper league (2 keepers). I like the trades I've made and they've led to me being a contender but I'm starting to think they were terrible considering it's a keeper league. I was just looking to shape my team into a contender and worry about keepers if I don't think my team is a contender or if I own a player that is a very valuable keeper. Here were the trades
I got Knile Davis and gave up Bishop Sankey
I got Arian Foster, Alfred Morris, Kendall Wright and gave up Jamaal Charles, Mark Ingram, Knile Davis
I got Matt Ryan, Keenan Allen, Frank Gore and gave up Matt Stafford, Alshon Jeffery, Chris Ivory
I got Josh Gordon and gave up Keenan Allen
So they've been good trades for this year but were they terrible considering it's a keeper?

Yeah I feel like Jordy, Steve Smith, Terrance Williams, Andre Johnson, K Wright are servicable....even if I don't get Marshall and trade for Gordon. Thanks!
