  1. Wilson is a historically slow starter, and it might be the right time to buy low on him. That being said, he doesn’t have the weapons around him that he usually does. i send: Brees, Howard, Lindsay i receive: Wilson, Gurley any thoughts? 12-team PPR QB: Brees WR: Hopkins, Landry, Fitzgerald (Edelman) RB: Kamara, Howard (Thompson, Ingram, Breida, Lindsay) TE: Gronk
  2. I'm about as deep at RB as I can ever remember being, with 6 potential top-30, if not top-25 backs in a 12-team PPR league. I view Lindsey as expendable, as I can't imagine ever starting him and i have enough depth without him. The question is, do I look to trade him now for some short-term WR help since Fitzgerald is dealing with an injury, or do i wait and see if he can stay hot and build even more value? If I don't trade him now, i may be forced to stream my WR3 slot this week. Available are: Ginn, Callaway, Benjamin... One potential move that I think i might be able to swing: i send: P. Lindsey I receive M. Crabtree Your thoughts? 12-team PPR QB: Brees WR: Hopkins, Landry, Fitzgerald (Edelman) RB: Kamara, Howard (Thompson, Ingram, Brieda, Lindsey) TE: Gronk
  3. 2 big trades. what next?

    I'd like to think so. I had him on my pre-season rankings higher than most, but he doesn't seem to get much love. Most seem to view him as a mid-, if not low-, tier RB2.
  4. Todd Gurley Trade offered

    The relevant equation isn't what points are involved in the trade (Thomas/Collins vs. Gurley), it's what effect does it have on his team (Thomas/Collins vs. Gurley/replacement WR). Assuming it's a 3 WR league, if the gap between Thomas and his current WR3 is less than the gap between Gurley and Collins, which may very well be the case, then it would be pretty tough to accept the trade. It's obviously a little bit more complicated, one wrinkle being the value of depth at different positions (i.e.is WR easier to spot-start than RB?), but i agree with most others in that i'd need a better RB in return.
  5. Looking to upgrade WR

    I can't help but think Ginn, if healthy, has the most long-term potential. New Orleans always utilizes a lot of weapons, which makes for some boom-or-bust fantasy players, but with a New Orleans defense that's showing early signs of being pretty pathetic, Brees will probably be looking to air it up a TON. and with defensive gameplans geared toward doing whatever they can to limit Thomas and Kamara, i think Ginn's in line for a really, sneakily good season. If filling a bench role, I'd play the long game, take Ginn, and weather the injury. If needing week 2 production, i think it's a toss-up between Grant and Allison.
  6. I somehow convinced the Rodgers / Delanie Walker owner to accept an offer of my Reed and Cobb for his Hopkins. Ecstatic about that trade. Less thrilled about the follow-up trade, which sent my AP and Kupp for another owner's Fitzgerald, but that owner drove a much harder bargain. Regardless, both trades moved my bench players for starting WR help which was woefully needed. Leaves me with: 12-team PPR QB: Brees WR: Hopkins, Fitzgerald, Landry (Edelman) RB: Kamara, Howard (Ingram, Thompson, Brieda) TE: Gronk Do I sit pat or look for additional moves? People seem to hate on Howard in PPR, but i think he's got a decent shot at ending the season as a top-15 RB. For a RB2 in a 12-team league, I'm not viewing that as a huge weakness.
  7. Sell high on AP?

    I have good depth at RB, but I didn't draft WRs well this year. Trying to cash in on AP's great week 1 performance to land myself a more dependable WR1. Your thoughts? Did Landry do enough in week 1 to make this a losing trade for me? I send: Peterson, Landry I receive: Fitzgerald I'll likely open with an AP + Cobb offer, but I highly doubt it'll be taken seriously. 12-team PPR QB: Brees RB: Kamara, Howard (Ingram, Thompson, Peterson, Brieda) WR: Landry, Kupp, Cobb (Edelman) TE: Gronk (Reed)
  8. Rate my team?

    I reached a bit on Edelman, but i needed to in order to make up for waiting so long to pick WRs. I'm hoping that once we fast forward a month, a combination of Landry, Edelman, and Kupp/Sanu/FA WR will be adequate. I feel like every other position is manned by an above average, if not elite option.
  9. Rate my team?

    I've never seen WRs go as fast as they did in this league, and I don't think I was quite prepared. As a result, my WR corp is a little weak, but I managed to nab Edelman which should help later in the season. Your thoughts? 12-team PPR QB: Brees RB: Kamara, Howard (Ingram, Thompson, Peterson) WR: Landry, Kupp, Cobb (Edelman, Sanu) TE: Gronk (Reed)
  10. Hopkins and Jones. Drafted Hopkins and was fortunate to buy low on both Jones and Evans. I say fortunate to buy low on Evans, but he’s done nothing since I got him during his suspension. What I gave up in the deal has FAR outproduced him.
  11. Who to start at WR3 in PPR? Evans at CAR - CAR 6th worst against fantasy WR - Evans 10 ppg over last 3 games Diggs at GB - GB 7th worst against fantasy WR - Diggs 11 ppg over last 3 games Shepard at ARI - ARI 17th worst against fantasy WR - Shepard 14 ppg over last 3 games, though almost all came in last game
  12. Gotta bench Evans, right?

    I keep expecting Evans to hit his ceiling. If he were to have done it even once in the second half of the season, I’d be a little more willing to put him out there. But he hasn’t topped 95 yards this season, and hasn’t even reached 14 fantasy points in a PPR league since week 8!
  13. I thought I was buying low on Evans during his suspension week, but he’s done absolutely nothing since. In his last 5 games in my league, he’s averaged 8 points per game, equivalent to posting 4/40/0 each week. I know there’s been some fluidity at QB in Tampa, but I can’t start him this week against a tough ATL secondary, right? my other options: Diggs vs CIN (equally as disappointing + even tougher matchup?) Agholor vs NYG (Foles?) Kupp @SEA 10-team PPR
  14. Crazy to bench my RB1?

    I think i agree with you guys. But it’s tough. The other two are definitely safer, and the “experts” are ranking them higher than Burkhead, but they have to play it safe in their rankings as well. i don’t know what to do, but I’m leaning toward McCoy and Burkhead.
  15. Am i crazy for trying to find a way to get Burkhead into my starting lineup? I start McCoy and Gordon every week at RB. Normally, I’d be pumped to have 2 of what most people consider to be top-10, if not top-5, backs in PPR. But Gordon has averaged 12.6 points and only topped 15 points once in his last 6 games. Similarly, McCoy has averaged 12.2 points and topped 15 points once over his last 5 games. Meanwhile Burkhead has averaged 16.6 points and topped 15 points 4 times in his last 5 games. Plus with Gronk out, you gotta expect the Pats to lean more heavily on the running backs. 10-team PPR QB: Prescott (Roethlisberger) RB: McCoy, Gordon (Burkhead, McKinnon, Collins) WR: Jones, Hopkins, Evans (Diggs) TE: Engram
