    Trade Objection? Your Opinion?

    Thanks for the input Matt. I will certainly let him walk if he chooses too. Funny thing is, he is the commish for the other other league I am in- might get awkward. I hear ya, sometimes I get jealous of trades but I have never vetoed or said I would walk away from the league. Glad to hear someone else thinks its fair. Although, I really don't even feel like they should have to be. I just do the veto thing so I don't have to get in the middle. The trade you are talking about is really sketchy but I wouldn't even veto it.

    Denver Broncos' kicker or Detroit Lion's kicker?

    Funny because they used to be the same person. I would go with the Bronoco's kicker for now. They kept the other guy for a reason and he gets to kick in thin air. Also, I think Prater missed several field goals in pre-season might be part of the reason they went with McManus.

    Yeah they are, that's what I told told him (originally thought it was half though but corrected myself). So if 3 others agree with him it will get vetoed anyway. Just don't get why he would just quit if he didn't get his way.

    Jeremy Hill, Asiata, or Spiller?

    I would go with Spiller, he will likely see more snaps than Hill and has a better matchup than Asiata

  • So I am the commish of this league and have landed Megatron for Harvin and Djax. I am very deep at WR and I can afford to wait on him to get healthy again.

    A new guy to our league says basically he is going to quit (we can have his money) if this trade goes through. He says Megatron is just a decoy this season while Djax and Harvin are worth their weight in gold. Honestly, I was shocked b/c I thought if one objected it would be the other way around. Also, I am the 1st place team and I am trading the 11th place team so if you really felt this way, I get worse which should be a good thing right?

    Anyway, I would apreciate any of your thoughts about the situation or the trade itself. Would you Veto it?

    murry or oliver

    why can't you start both? Oliver has a killer match up and ran all over a very good run d and Murray runs all over anyone. He might take a step back vs. Seattle at home though. Still you have to roll with the guy, he has put up huge numbers week in and week out. If I had to pick, you go with your stud in Murray but I suggest you find a way to play both.

  • Just traded DJax and Harvin for Megatron. He is probably going to be out for a few weeks but I still have decent WR depth. It's a 12 team league and it will make my team:

    QB: Rivers
    WR1: A. Brown
    WR2: E. Sanders
    RB1: Forte
    RB2: Foster
    TE: Gronk
    Flex: Oliver (for this week at least)
    K: Bryant
    DEF: SD
    DP: Kuechly
    B: Megatron (when he is healthy he'll be in of course)
    B: FJax
    B: Wallace
    B: Welker
    B: Romo
    B:Will need to pick up someone

    I never trust in Eli, what happened last week was a fluke and it will not happen again this season. Also the Skins 2ndary, is down right awful. So, I would go with Flacco if not just whoever is matched up with the Skins, Eagles, Jags, Jets, or Saints that week if they are available. Jake Locker gets the Jags that week, So I strongly just consider that match up and take him. I guess Eli gets the Eagles, so that's not too bad either. Anyway, you didn;t ask about this.

    Evans is who I would drop, although I am not a fan of carrying two D's. I think if you really wanted Evans, he would still be there after week 6 and you could scoop him back up.

    Given all the targets he is seeing and that most of them are in the red zone, I say go for it. Donnell has a shot to be the next Gronk. I like Cameron too and it is a contract year for him but maybe see what he does coming off that injury first and slide Donnell in there until you feel comfortable. Personally, I am getting him to possible cover for Gronk, as the Pats just look horrible so far this year.

    Mind looking at: Sandsky or McKinnon wavier wire pick up?

  • Who should I try to pick up on the wavier wire Sandsky or McKinnion. My depth at RB suck beyond my starters and one is Foster which is a bit of a concern at the moment, so I need the guy that is more likely to become a starter sooner rather than later.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Having a really tough time choosing a Defense: Broncos, Indy, or Saints. I have the Broncos now but they have a tough match up vs Seahawks. They are easily the most talented though. Still NO and Indy have great match-ups but neither have looked good at all. Been leaning towards NO since they are at home vs a Petersonless Vikes team. All thoughts and insight appreciated.

    Standard scoring other than we get points for TFL-takles for a loss. Each TFL= 1pnt. Which is still while Denver doesn't look bad.

    Who wins?

    Really tough to say. One plays for a team that will eventually be re-building so they may want to give some other guys looks. The other is a Rookie and will have to Stills when he returns. Not to mention Brees typically spreads it around. Cooks has higher stock at the moment so I say team 2 but if you would have asked me last week I would has laughed and said team 1.

    proposed trade in a 2qb ppr with idps

    by billy Sep 9, 2014 7:33 PM
    Ryan B Ryan B Sep 10, 2014 12:28 AM Flag

    I think Stafford might have a career year this year and might even end up a top 3 QB. I also think Rivers will have a good year too, better even better than last season which was good enough to put him in the top 5. So, the difference between the two might not end up being all that much IMO.

    Given that, I say you win if he takes your counter. Mind looking at mine- "Trade Help"

    With Charles coming off a tough week and with the person who has in in my league in last place, do I offer him maybe Foster and E. Sanders for him? Would that be enough? Or do you think I am crazy to trade Foster for him seeing as how he got 29 touches and Charles only saw 7?

    My other RBs are Forte and F. Jackson. I'm pretty deep at WR though- A.Brown, Harvin, Sanders, Wallace, Welker, and Wayne.
