move up from 12th to 2nd? Is it worth it?

Recommended Posts

EDIT: removed Wayne from the options

 

12 team 2 man keeper league. Mine are Gore and Steve Smith. I am drafting 12th and currently looking at Housh, Ochocinco, Roy, Moreno, T Jones as my serpentine picks. have a chance to move up to the 2nd spot for the following:

 

swap my 1.12, 2.01 and trade my 4.01 for his 1.02 and 2.11. Basically moving up in the 1st, back in the 2nd and losing my 4th. With the 1.02 I would have my choice of Colston, Portis, or Brees. Based on keepers those are the top talent available. I am leaning towards Brees so I have a stud at every position after the first. Or Portis is a possibility and targeting McNabb or Schaub or the like in rd 4 or 5. Scoring is below and appreciate your thoughts on this.

 

Our draft is this Sat.

Since it's a keeper league, you need to share who might be available at the 1.12 and 2.01 spots for anyone to give an opinion. If you can give a guess who'd be available at 2.12, that'd help even more.

:wacko: my bad

 

the only one I like at 1.02 is Wayne. Brees gets bumped down slightly if he loses his LT to a sports hernia. Housh gets bumped down slightly since I think SEA might lose their LT. If you could get 85 and Moreno at the turn, I think I like that more than Wayne and whomever is at 2.12. As odd as it is, right now, losing the 4th round pick is what's making me think that you shouldn't do the trade.

 

But I do like Wayne and Brees, so while I think you're overpaying a little, I'd make that trade for one of them.

thanks for the thoughts. I like Brees too...I had him last year so I"m trying to not fall into that trap of recreating a team (I won the superbowl last yr).

 

I am going to see if he'll swap 3rds...which moves me up and may take the edge off losing the 4th rd pick.

 

I just confirmed the #1 pick will be Wayne. So I would definitely be trading up for just Brees. I don't think Colston is worth trading up for, though I could nab Portis as he'll be available at that 1.02.

I would agree with LO - the 4th round throw in is a bit steep but might be worth it if you really want a shot at Wayne, who very may well be taken at 1.01.

 

You still need to get a starter or significant value out of your 4th round. Can you counter with trading him your 4.01 for his 4.11 as part of this deal?

He currently has no 4th rd pick because he rookie locked Kevin Smith. So he's willing to move down in the first to gain that 4th pick. I tried swapping 3rds too but he doesn't think he can do that. I may try for swapping 5ths but that probably doesn't really get me much.

 

Wayne's going to go #1 so I'm defintely looking at being able to get Brees or Portis at this point

I'd lean to Brees over Portis, tho I'd rather have Wayne if he did become available.

 

EDIT: *IF* Colston was healthy and ready to be a stud, I'd take him over Portis too.

seems like a bunch to give up for a QB. if i knew i could wait and grab warner or rodgers, i'd hold off to keep the consecutive picks and my 4th rounder.

 

gore and smith are solid keepers, but they don't have all that much upside left. you are just hoping they can stay on the field. using more picks to increase your chances for some breakout performances would help.

Rodgers is a keeper. To get Warner I think I would need to probably use my 2.01 because I do not expect him to last back to my 3.12. At that point I am hoping McNabb is there at 4.01 and Rivers would be gone as well.
