  • What is his value? I am in a 14 team dynasty league and have christine michael. The guy who has lynch has said he wants to acquire a 1st round pick. Thru trades I have multiple 1sts so I offered my 12th pick for lynch and his 22nd. I am not so willing to pay much more as running backs decline so early now. Is that a fair offer?

    Is this DYNASTY team stacked, or what?

    I would probably make the trade, if he's really WR strapped I'd think about offering Harvin for that #1pick, but that's mostly because I don't believe he can stay healthy for a season and the #1 rookie pick is great value for him.

    I have the guy with the #1 overall pick interested in a trade too. I give my first two #10 and #15 for his first two #1 and #24. I either get the best player available, or 2 of the top 15. I'm REALLY considering the trade. Our benches are DEEP, so there won't be a lot of great options at the end of the 1st round. I could get Hyde or Mason for sure that way. It's not like my team needs a lot of help anyway, except for a young RB. I have youth and depth everywhere else. Would you make the trade? He REALLY needs a WR, so I might be able to get his #1 pick for the right WR. He's also rolling with Ryan and Rivers at QB and he's not happy about it. I think he would take Foles for that pick too maybe, but I'm reluctant to let him go. Any thoughts?

    Looks good, but do not invest a 1st rounder in gerhart. While he is starting, he will be going against some competition for downs. Hyde and mason are worth it regardless do to age and stud potential. Gerhart is by no means a stud. Let someone else pick him high, and you will laugh later.

    Yeah... I actually like Moreno in Miami. I think it's the 2nd best spot he could have landed besides Denver re-signing him. He should get #1 duties over Miller, and Daniel T. is probably done there now. So far, it doesn't look to me like there's enough evidence on Rice for him to get in big trouble. No video of punches thrown = her word vs. his. They will probably get counseling and worst case he misses 1 MAYBE 2 games...if any at all. If Djax leaves Philly, and it sounds like he is, Maclin could be a BIG sleeper in that offense. Just depends on how well he comes back from injury. He's still young, and talented. Nicks left NYG too, so Randle should get his chance, and I have both of Mannings two starting WR's. I'll gladly trade high on Randle if he starts off hot. Given my scoring settings, almost my whole starting lineup consists of players that would be taken in the first 3 rounds of a 12 team redraft league. Patterson and Foles may even be included in that. Cruz is probably a 4th rounder. A.Brown...who knows there. We will see where he goes...anywhere but NY is better for him with Jennings in town and Butterfingers Wilson coming off of neck surgery. Lattimore is a stash who could pay off BIG someday, maybe not till next year, but we have deep benches so I can afford to hold him.

    And yes, I am targeting a first pick RB. I doubt Hyde will make it to me, but I'll gladly take Tre Mason as well. Toby Gerhart will be there too, again I'm not sure if he will make it to #10 or not though. I'm considering trading my 1st 2 picks for someone elses if I can get em to do it. If I can get inside the top 4 I can grab one of Watkins, Hyde, Mason, Gerhart, or maybe M.Evans. Not sure if anyone would be willing though considering their teams aren't great.

    Thanks for your input.

    I like it! RB is your weakest spot, so Rice's aggravated assault charge really hurts and Moreno is in Miami. Andre Brown should be signed soon too. Moreno or him chould still be worthy of a flex play depending on Patterson, Randal and Maclin's years. I see you went with an all-PSU IDP team, gotta respect that as an alum! You might want to roll the dice on an IDP with your third pick since you get extra roster spots. Not sure where Mack will go in your draft. Other than that you may want to go with Rookie RB's at picks #10 and 15 even if one isn't Hyde.

    Unless you can get a significant upgrade at QB I wouldn't trade Marshall either. Wait till the season starts and see where Patterson, Tate, Randle, and Williams are. If two or three are putting up good numbers then it's time to sell high on someone. You have 3 WR spots and a flex, so without trading anyone you could use all 5 players through bye weeks etc. Trouble could be that the targets for the younger guys aren't there or are inconsistent for them to be weekly starters in PPR. You'd be hurting without Marshall.

    Matt might be overestimating the value, but he's right that this is prime time to trade Patterson...
    He's a big guy with all kinds of talent, did very well near the end of last year....
    AND
    He's in a new offense, with new coaches, at least two talented pass catchers that he'll share targets with and still no idea who's gonna be throwing them the ball... and there's a Running Back in Minnesota that's pretty much the focus of that team.

    Patterson's upside looks to be high to mid range WR 2 for fantasy, but a lot of people are convinced he's gonna have a breakout year so his trade value is sky high right now.

    I think that's a good call. You will be just fine starting Marshall, Patterson, and Tate along with Gore, Rice, and Vereen at flex. Tate is trying to get punt return duties in Detroit too, and he probably will, so that helps a little with your scoring settings. Still having some depth for injuries or bye weeks. Ellington could break out now that Mendy retired. And Williams could too with M.Austin out of Dallas. I'm almost certain you won't get Watkins at #4. You might have a chance at Evans or C.Hyde though. Both should be good pickups. Then maybe grab a QB at #11 if there is still one there. I wouldn't worry too much about Brady. Yes, he had an off year. But he's also one of 5-6 QB's who threw the ball over 600 times last season. And that Brady to Vereen combo is gonna be nice. They also signed LaFell, so that will help assuming he can pick up the playbook quickly. You can worry about TE later, one will pop up like J.Thomas did. Someone probably has 3 TE's on their roster too, maybe you can get one cheap in the first few weeks. Keep an eye on L.Toilolo in ATL if hes still out there. He's replacing Gonzo, and he's 6'8".

    Also..that guy is trying like hell to dump R.Mathews...don't fall for it. He's now part of a 3 headed monster with D.Brown in SD...no thanks.

    We start 1 qb, 3 wrs, 2 rbs, 1 flex, 1 te, 1 def, 1 kicker.

    Really deep pool so no real sleepers. Only possibilities may be robinson from the giants or ryan griffin from the texans as possibilities. No qbs to speak of.
    I turned down that offer then recieved another one, ryan mathews, rudolph and 12th pick for gates, marshall and 54th pick. I turned that down.
    I think I am going to keep my roster as is and try and draft ebron and kelvin benjamin. Those 2 seem to have a lot of upside, some saying stud potential for both.

    Again...I agree with Eric. I wouldn't make either trade. Patterson and Marshall make a nasty combo with those scoring settings. You're RB's aren't too bad either. Gore doesn't have the greatest value for dynasty purposes, but Vereen and Ellington do. And I'm a believer Rice bounces back this year for AT LEAST 1400-1500 TOTAL yards and 60+ catches. Vereen is good for 1200 yards and 40-50 catches at least as well, probably more. I think you stick with your team. Brady and Gates, while not ff superstars anymore, are serviceable for now. What TE's and QB's are in the FA pool from last year, not including rookies? Gotta be at least one who could break out. And what are your starting spots? 2RB 2WR? Flex spots?

    I would try to trade Patterson. I'm not convinced that he becomes a star, and his value is sky-high now, probably higher than Marshall's. You can probably get Rodgers and a TE upgrade for Brady and Patterson. If not, you can probably get Jimmy Graham for Patterson straight up.

    No way I would make either trade! Marshall is the best player on your team, I wouldn't take an average TE or risky RB for him, I wouldn't take both players and the pick for him even if I got to keep the 54 pick..

    Other guy offered rudolph and 12th pick for marshall and 54th pick. Would be a big upgrade over gates at TE. TEs playing for norv torner produce very well traditionally..

    It is a ppr league with return yards counting and tds counting. 14 team league. My picks are 4th and 11th. My rbs are ellington, rice, vereen and gore. I was offered ryan mathews and 12th overall pick for marshall and 54 th pick. The guy also has zach ertz and rudolph. So should I counter with one of his TEs and 12th pick? Since return yards count I like patteeson and tate a lot more as it makes both more valuable, so I am kind of comfortable trading marshall.

    That would give me 4th, 11th and 12th picks. Should allow me to get young WR, TE and QB.

    I do appreciate all your opinions. Thank you
