View Full Version : Need some help

I am in a 20 team league that is deep and includes defensive players. While drafting, the running backs were taken mostly early so I was left with few choices. I drafted Peyton Manning in hopes of using him for trade. Curious what you think his value would be in terms of picking up RB/WR or both. Here is my team minus a few waiver trades (*) I am waiting for:

Philip Rivers (SD - QB)
Vincent Jackson (SD - WR)
Donald Driver (GB - WR)
Josh Morgan (SF - WR)
Joseph Addai (Ind - RB)
Daniel Thomas (Mia - RB)
Jason Witten (Dal - TE)
Denarius Moore (Oak - WR)
Delone Carter (Ind - RB)
Peyton Manning (Ind - QB)
DeMarco Murray (Dal - RB) *
Todd Heap (Ari - TE)
Alex Henery (Phi - K)

Tamba Hali (KC - LB)
James Harrison (Pit - LB)
Brandon Peguese (Phi - LB) *
Cullen Jenkins (Phi - DT,DE)
Wallace Gilberry (KC - DE)
John Abraham (Atl - DE)
Brandon Flowers (KC - CB)
Bryant McFadden (Pit - CB)
Earl Thomas (Sea - S)
Danny McCray (Dal - S) *
Johnathan Joseph (Hou - CB)
Carlton Powell (Atl - DT,DE) *

Nothing really available on waiver wire except 3rd string RB's and 5th string WR's.
Other question would be should I keep what I have and role the dice? Don't know if Peyton will be coming back at all and don't know if I should dump him now while there is good value, or wait, hope he has full recovery and maybe get more from him later. All your help is very much appreciated!

trade him NOW if you can - IMO

you have rivers.....he should be fine cept week 6 or whenver the bye is

maybe you can grab a backup QB by then

Do you think he is worth Felix Jones type RB's or Jamaal Charles type RB's? I am sure a couple of my "backup RB's" will pan out and give me some points, not to sure about my WR's though.
