Am I crazy for Dropping T Rich to grab McCown?


Recommended Posts

Trying to look forward to the playoffs. I posted something about this the other day but last nights game might have sealed this for me. T Rich sucks! 2013 is a lost cause on him. Somehow I'm in 2nd place at 6-4 with a chance to go into 1st place if I win this week. I'm more concerned about my QB situation. Definitely the weakest position on my team. I have Luck and Cutler. I'm thinking of grabbing McCown right now as a FA (he's the best available option on WW) plus I'm a Cutler owner. I'd then drop McCown when Cutler comes back in a few weeks and pick up a second D for when Carolina plays NO. Today is the trade deadline so I don't have time to package a deal. What do you think, should I do this? I'm leaning towards yes...


In case you cant see b/c your on mobile heres my team. 12 team standard non PPR.


QB - Luck, Cutler

WR - Calvin, AJ Green, Decker, K Allen, D. Moore

RB - Lacy, Stacy, A. Brown, Ellington, T Rich

TE - J. Thomas, T. Wright

K - Crosby

D/ST - Carolina

Absolutely you drop Richardson for McCown. There is absolutely no chance you use him at anytime going forward unless all of the other RB's on your team die and every other RB in the league has been claimed on waivers, then and only then should Richardson be inserted into your lineup. I know it's not always easy dropping a guy you wasted a high draft pick on, but Richardson is a bust and there is zero chance of him turning it around this year (and I don't see a future for him following next season - he'll be on the streets or pursuing his career in the adult film business).

Well if Luck gets hurt and Cutler is already out with a high ankle then I'm up $*#% creek with out a paddle. Especially if McCown (who has actually looked pretty good) has a good game this week somebody will get him off the WW. Another thing to consider is I'm playing against somebody next week who has Wilson and Foles as their QB's, both will be on bye so this could also be a strategic play. Thanks for both of your responses, I really appreciate all the advice on here and I always try to help give my advice too. Feel free to link your questions on here and I'll answer. Anybody else have an opinion on if I should do this?
