The Trent Richardson Deal....how to manage this week?

5 posts in this topic

I'm in two leagues, I get hit on both sides of this trade

 

League #1

Do I sit Trent (@SF) for:

  • Sproles (was using in Flex slot)
  • J. Rodgers (RB - ATL)
  • R.Hillman (never mind this one, not sure why I still have him on the roster)

 

I could move into the Flex

  • Jordan Cameron (TE - CLE)
  • Jason Avant (WR - PHI)
  • Kenbrall Thompkins (WR - NE)
  • Charles Clay (TE - MIA)

-------------------------

League #2 (PPR)

Sit Ahmad Bradshaw @ SF?

  • Bryce Brown (PHI)
  • Danny Woodhead (SD)

 

Combination of the trade and playing @SF seems to make both of these iffy......

I would personally be leary about playing him the first couple of weeks... you don't know how much they'll use him.

it could be the panther fan in me but i always thought jacquizz rodgers was terrible. sproles is the only one i would consider. even then, richardson is beastly and will get goal-line carries at the very least.

 

i would start t-rich.

Heh, I had to replace R. Bush as a late game out. So I put TRich back in (& Sproles as #2 RB) w/ Cameron as the Flex. And I still got stomped. (I'm above average scoring in this league, but I keep running into the top 1-2 highest scoring teams each week)

 

The 2nd league ($ league) I'm undefeated and unless Manning goes off like week 1, I should stay atop at 3-0. I went Panther's lite....Cam, Olson, Panthers D. (Cruz, Megatron are my receivers). I've got POO for running backs.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
    • He is worth #8 pick. I'd like to see him next to Newton on the field.
