Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I own the Steelers and the Dolphins and am choosing to use the Steelers this week.
The Chiefs aren't very scary, especially with no Jamaal Charles.
Not sure if this helps you, but as a point of reference, I just traded Kelce and Dez Bryant for Cam Newton and Greg Olsen. The guy I traded had three good QBs and needed WR depth, but that might give you an idea of the type of deal that you can pull off.
I think Lacy may bounce back and play better (and have more opportunities) when the weather gets colder, but this is a deal you have to make.
Thanks to everyone who provided in-depth feedback. I just accepted the deal.
I was offered Andy Dalton for Dez after Week 2 and have been regretting my decision to decline it. So, better late than never, but I have now used an injured player to upgrade my QB situation.
I realize this is a trade question, but that board is pretty much dead.
In my 10-team, standard scoring, non-keeper league, I have Tannehill as my only QB after trading Bradford this morning, but I'm deep at WR with Dez, Mike Evans, Allen Robinson, John Brown, Donte Moncrief, Travis Benjamin and Stefon Diggs. I also have Kelce and Eifert at TE.
I'm 2-4 and can't really afford to keep waiting for Dez to return, even though it's about to happen. I've been offered Cam Newton and Greg Olsen (and yes, I'm a fan of the "double points" strategy with players from the same team) in exchange for Dez and Kelce.
This would fix my QB problem and wouldn't really change my WR picture since I haven't had Dez for most of the season.
I posted a question 11 hours ago and not a thing.
I remember coming here back around draft time in August, and there was a lot of conversation. Don't know what happened...
Would I be selling Kelce low by trading him to a guy in my league for Dion Lewis?
I have Eifert and his amazing numbers sitting on my bench, but my RBs are Jeremy Hill, Lamar Miller, Ameer Abdullah, Ronnie Hillman and Duke Johnson.
Okay, this trade has now been offered to me by Dalton's owner.
I'm a little hesitant because Dez could be back as early as Week 7, but my QB tandem of Tannehill and Bradford has disappointed.
I really need an upgrade at QB, and Andy Dalton has looked very good so far. I've started the season with a 1-3 record and pretty much need to win every week now. Thus, I can't be patient and wait for Dez to come back.
If I trade him for Dalton, is that selling too low? Or good value for a guy who could still be out of several weeks?
Tannehill hasn't been that great for me this year. I'm not saying that I'd replace him, but I'm at least looking to pick up someone who has the potential to start over him on certain weeks.
I drafted Dez, and my team is now 0-3 and in danger of being eliminated from playoff contention with another loss or two.
He's not due back for awhile, and I can't afford to be patient. I've been offered Dion Lewis for him, and while I really don't trust New England RBs and realize I'm selling very low, this may need to be a desperation move.
I felt really good about my team after this year's draft, but so far, it has been a complete disappointment. I'm 0-3, and I've scored nearly 200 less points than the owner in first place.
Here's my roster:
QB - Ryan Tannehill
QB - Sam Bradford
RB - Jeremy Hill
RB - Lamar Miller
RB - Ameer Abdullah
RB - Matt Jones
RB - Ronnie Hillman
RB - Duke Johnson
WR - Dez Bryant
WR - Mike Evans
WR - Allen Robinson
WR - John Brown
WR - Travis Benjamin
WR - Rishard Matthews
WR - Marvin Jones
TE - Travis Kelce
TE - Tyler Eifert
K - Matt Prater
DEF - Dolphins
DEF - Browns
You can tell that I've been able to pick up a few hot hands off of waivers, but right now, it's really tough to improve. No one wants to trade with me because they'd be buying low on nearly every player.
I've thought about packaging a few guys together in a trade, but at this point, I don't even know which position needs improved the most, probably RB?
I just mentioned that because Benjamin seemed to be building a rapport with Manziel. He was his favorite target. McCown might not feel the need to feed him the ball as much.
Now that McCown is the starting QB in Cleveland again, I'm thinking that I could drop Benjamin and add two of these guys.
Matthews is appealing because I own Tannehill, and I like the idea of having two players connect to score points for my fantasy team (though I know others aren't a fan of this strategy).
It is a good point that Baldwin is the only name mentioned that is the #1 receiving option on his team.
