I'm already pretty depressed regarding my RBs.

I've got McGahee, Selvin Young, Rudi Johnson and Kolby Smith. It's a deep league - 14 teams.

So, what I planned on doing was asking for assistance in regards to trades. What I plan to do is list the other 13 guys' rosters in hopes there is some way you guys can iron out a deal with me. I understand if alot of you people don't read this because of its length. But, any help would be amazing.

Normally I wouldn't go apesh*t in the 2nd week. But, between Ray Rice and McClain playing well and Selvin Young partying in an RBBC it's hard not to.

The three teams I'm targeting is Suitable Hair, HARDBALLS, and Buccaneers.

I know this is alot of information to soak up and I completely understand if nobody responds or can even think of any proposals.

All help is appreciated.

I'm really bad at constructing hypothetical trades. I am decent, however, at the waiver wire. I'd target Royal, obviously. Which Rbs are available? Like Tim Hightower or Sammy Morris.

This is a deep 14 team league. The waiver wire is very thin.


The best possible RB FA is Kevin Jones.

Since you mentioned the possibility of trading Big Ben, Hardballs is probably the worst off at QB. Grant looks like he might have ongoing hamstring issues (making Brandon Jackson a buy low target). Personally, I'd wait a week or two to see if another QB goes down. IMO, you've got two top 14 QBs, which are valuable commodities.

How many players do you start?

Hightower was an excellent pickup, btw. Seriously, let me know who's out there on the waiver wire.

We start 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 1K, 1D

I will post waiver wire guys when I get off work.

We don't have an add/drop. We have 5 pickups for the whole year.

Here is a name that is being overlooked in alot of leagues: Steve Slaton.

Counting the 2 pickups for K and D/ST bye weeks? That's a retarded rule.

If you're dead set on getting RB help, I'd go after Forte or Grant (in that order). Garcia's injured and/or about to be benched and Hasselbeck has a bulging disc in his back.

I was just offered Ray Rice and Slaton for Schaub and Benjamin Watson.


Thoughts?

I apologize. The trade offered was Schaub for Ray Rice straight up.


However, HARDBALLS has listed Matt Forte on the trading block.


So, is there anyway I could get Forte from him by offering Schaub and ____?

Or should I do the Schaub for Ray Rice deal?

Ceej
09-10-2008, 09:08 PM
Okay, how quickly time goes. HARDBALLS already did a trade.


He recieved Warner and MJD for Forte, Ladell Betts and Kris Brown.

Man, apparently I am too slow.

No, I'd hold out for a better offer.

Some guy offered me Royal, Forte and Bulger for Schaub, Selvin Young and Fitzgerald, LOL.

Ramswin needs a WR badly. He just traded for Holt. I was thinking of and Holmes/McGahee for Forte/Holt. However, that would give me Young and Forte who share the same bye weeks.


See anything else?

I don't think you want any part of Holt. The Rams o-line looked terrible last week and, although they don't play the Eagles every week, the team is a way bigger mess than the Chiefs. You'd also be selling low on McGahee, which is fine if you think he's going to bust.

In summary, I think that's a awful trade, especially since you only start 2 WRs.

Did Ramswin just trade Braylon? If so, that's someone I'm targeting. Even though he was terrible last week, he still got a ton of looks.

Nah, he traded Royal (who he just picked up) and Dominic Rhodes for Torry Holt.
