Commissioner Corner Message Board
last year i ended up taking manning in the 4th and took stafford in the 11th...i ended up trading stafford for eric decker late in the season.
i also toyed with trading manning for something bigger and having stafford as a keeper in the 11th but manning gave me the best chance to win so i went the other way.
got 2nd :(
depends on whos there imo.
in my only draft so far i had p manning as a keeper so i didnt need a backup qb, but romo was there really late and i didnt see anyone else on the board that i wanted that i couldnt get the equivalent a round later.
the loss of manning in a 6pt passing td league is big.
but the upgrade at te and rb and possibly even wr down the stretch to me seem worth it.
ive never traded before the season started before, however mannings value can almost only go down, albeit minimally, once the season starts.
the players added to team B all carry risk however.
6pt/passing td .5ppr
qb: P Manning
wr: White (with Josh Gordon on bench via trade)
flex: Sproles (or Roddy White depending on Gordons fate)
6 player trade would see team A become B.
i think most people, myself included as a stacy owner, are more worried about mason. they drafted him pretty early.
i realize every team wants a stable in todays nfl, and perhaps at the price he was too talented to let slip, but stacy did well last year despite the passer so for them to take a rb in rd 3 is troubling.
Id probly put the packers and falcons up there before them at least until we see something.
as a skins fan, i probly would def prefer garcon. i would take them both if djax slipped.
if i took garcon i wouldnt take djax unless he was my #4 wr and id play him in the flex. otherwise i wouldnt want him as more than a wr3.
well just about every rb in the league is in a timeshare these days fellas so what exactly are you suggesting?
i wouldnt handcuff a guy unless i was starting one at a rb spot (not flex). youre not starting cj i assume so dont worry about his backup, he is already a backup for you.
In a .5ppr dynasty league which of these guys would you rather have?
I may have an opp to trade Roddy and White (my wr 3) and Sankey for Gio and a much lesser wr. He has guys like dwayne bowe and reggie wayne who I dont really want to start but as a wr3 behind Green and Nelson I would be in better shape with the bump at rb.
He wound up with McCoy Bell and Bernand due to keeping Bell and Bernard and wants to upgrade at wr.
The upgrade at rb is worth this sort of downgrade at wr right? (he might like wayne more than i think so maybe just bowe is on the table for white/sankey)
well if you go te/wr in the first 2 rds your 1st rb is going to be questionable.
you could have done worse than ellington. id be more interested in who your rb2 is...
yeah i took them both as well, west several round later.
both are expected to be lead runners on their teams, but sankey earlier than west.
hard to read about these guys though cause every analyst has a different story.
read an article that showed precedence on how gordon could (and so far is taking this route) delay any suspension for the entire year. saw it on saturday just before my draft and missed out on taking him by one round.
i agree that signs point to him playing this season in some capacity, and in the 11th its a better investment than most of the other options available who will probably get dropped anyways.
not really what im asking. i read he isnt in line to start right now after having heard that it was a sure thing before today, so from anyone who knows, is he supposed to be the starter in tennessee?
yeah the knock on him is that hes not a pass catcher and gruden likes to utilize a pass catching back.
but hes a workhorse rb and is a lock to get goal line carries, so i think you have him right.
