To handcuff or not to handcuff


Recommended Posts

I've got a pretty nice team (lots of FF rooks), but am wondering if I should drop one or two players to pickup Betts and/or Coffee and also should I consider swapping Favre for Delhomme.

 

I've got:

Schaub, Favre (drop Favre?, Schaub is injury risk, but waiver wire is slim - Delhomme, Hill, Flacco, Orton)

Gore, Portis, Felix, Donald Brown, Larry Johnson (don't think I should part with anyone)

Megatron, Colston, Housh, Ginn, & Avery (I'm thinking I could stand to lose Ginn)

T. Gonzalez, Carlson (eventually trade value here)

Packers

Elam

 

Start: 1qb, 2rb, 2wr, 1 rb/wr, 1 DEF, 1 K

 

I think there is value in anyone I drop, so I may try to work a 2 for 1 trade first before I drop someone.

 

Appreciate your input.

in a 10 team league, there is such a rich waiver wire that i wouldn't waste roster spots with handcuffs. i'd rather have the rookies and upside players should one of them break out. i'd also stay with favre a bit longer to really get a read on where he is. delhomme has little upside.

I no longer try to handcuff. It has never worked out that the handcuff has been more then bench fodder and most times the handcuff had to be taken EARLIER then they should to assure you get them. Now, if the event you get a shaky starter (addai) i would absolutely get D Brown. If you draft say...LT, I don't think you have to get sproles because ONLY a severe injury is going to make sproles worth it to you.
