Re: Fantasy Tips

P. Thomas for sure

def. sit McFadden

total tossup with McCoy and Portis.
I think Portis' ankle should be good to go , but McCoy could be great catching screens out of the backfield. I'd go with McCoy this week cause the Eagles really have no other option.

with reggie bush being nothing more than a change of pace back I see P THomas getting a solid 15 points tonight.

I think mccoy and portis will both be in the 10 to 15 range as well.

and mcfadden is just ... well a raider. I love his talent, but he hasn't done much in 2 years...but with micheal bush out he could be big, but I wouldn't start him vs. tenn.

Eagles will be playing from behind against GB for sure. Philly already has a pass-heavy scheme, but he could end up with maybe a dozen carries...McCoy better catch a lot of passes to be fantasy-relevant.

Re: Fantasy Tips

Okay so I just got a trade Proposal from a guy in my league.

Hakeem Nicks, Steve Breaston, Clinton Portis, Chris Cooley to me for

Greg Jennings, Tony Gonzalez, and Cadillac Williams.

Now my starting offense will look like this if I make the deal

QB-Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer
RB-Clinton Portis, Darren McFadden, Jerome Harrison, Cedric Benson
WR-Mohammed Massaquoi, Steve Breaston, Eddie Royal, Danny Amendola, Hakeem Nicks, Mike Williams
TE-Chris Cooley

His will be

QB-Tom Brady, Donovan McNabb
RB-Cadillac Williams, Joseph Addai, Brandon Jacobs, Laurence Maroney
WR-Randy Moss, Steve Smith (Car), Johnny Knox, Greg Jennings, Austin Collie
Te- Tony Gonzalez

My question is, is this a good trade for me ? Should I make this trade even though it boosts his WR core ?

Re: Fantasy Tips

^Jesus, you started with horrible WRs. Its a pretty even deal, but your taking a much greater risk with exchanging Jennings for Nicks and Breaston. Both those guys kinda had "breakouts" for their first game this season. Your giving up a #1 for 2 # 2 guys. I would wait this weekend to see if both have decent games just to see consistency. You know for sure Caddy, Gonzalas, and Jennings are all number 1s who have more opportunities for bigger overall numbers. Cooley has Davis and Portis has LJ who potentionally could take away numbers.

I would say no. If you do this you will have a starting RB and TE from the same team, not good. Jennings should outperform Nicks, Gonzalez should outperform Cooley and although Portis should be better than CW, the RB/TE same team thing hurts you and Portis doesn't bring you enough benefit to justify the trade.

Re: Fantasy Tips

I say go for it. Your team will still be pretty deep. The craziest trade I have had in my 11 seasons doing fantasy was proposed. THis guy is trading me Philip Rivers for Chris Chambers!!! I thought he was crazy, but his entire team is Chiefs!!!! I mean all of his starters are on KC! He gave me his best QB just to have all Chiefs. I doubt the commish is going to let it ride though, but it would be funny if she did. This one guy is balking about it.

Re: Fantasy Tips

I'm the commish of my league. If it's a money league then either I say hey it's your money to lose but you won't be in the league next year. If he's stacking your team then maybe I'd have to look at it but that is a deal that just wreaks of a hook up. Not saying that's what you're doing but it would seem that way. We had a guy like that in my league 2 years ago, would make ANY trade just because he wanted Eagles on his squad.

As far as the trade goes, I thought the same thing that I'm taking two Skins, I thought that Cooley would be an upgrade over Gonzalez but Caddy doesn't even start for me so that would give me a starter for a bench player. I'm hoping that Portis get's #1 RB points but that's what has me confused. Jennings does is fact give me the double up if Rodgers goes his way but Nicks could end up being the Red Zone guy for the Giants. My WR game is some garbage even with Jennings, so taking a chance on Niks and Breaston is a tad far fetched.

Re: Fantasy Tips

So, I am one of the unlucky Ryan Grant owners. Making the best of a bad situation, who do you start in the flex spot (league has 3 WR's, 1 RB, 1 W/R; Colston & M. Turner are my sure starts):

R. Williams v. Minn
T. Jones v. Clev.
F. Taylor v. NYJ

or do I start a WR in the flex spot:
P. Garcon v. NYG
E. Royal v. Seattle
P. Harvin v. Miami

You get .5 pts per reception and 1 pt for every 25 rushing or rcving yards.

You have Jones Drew? No. The Arian Foster "experience" won't happen every week. Kind of like me with Matt Forte on my fantasy team from last week. I'm am strongly considering benching him this week.

Re: Fantasy Tips

If you're getting points per catch I would stick with MJD. Need to see a bit more from Foster too in order to be a believer.
