Don't be shellfish...Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on Reddit

The season is at the midway point and as we journey into the second part of our lonely trudge into fantasy fame in some leagues and fantasy infamy in others, it gets harder and harder to get in on someone and call them a buy low.  Too much work has been done at this point to point at a player and say ‘that guys underperforming’ or ‘that one’s clearly playing above his head’ or ‘he should’ve had a V8′.  We’ve seen too much and know too much to be fooled by a bad game or two…but it never stops us from trying.  And in the spirit of that, I’m here to talk to you about Marshawn Lynch.  I’ve been ragging on the ‘hawks coaching staff of late and their offensive game plan and I think it’s fairly warranted.  This is a team known for its run game, great defense and the heroics of RW3 when they’re needed.  Lemme be the first of many to tell you, the heroics of a game generally aren’t needed until the 4th quarter.  Heroics usually don’t watch their running back rush for nearly 50 yards on one drive in the first quarter only to turn the ball over on an interception and then go away from the run for another 2 and a half quarters to top it off.  What I’m saying is, after 8 carries for 23 yards against a team defense that gave up almost 200 rushing yards to the Titans a week later, Lynch should’ve been feasting on the Bucs but he didn’t really get the chance to.  Well I’m here to say I think the OC in Seattle has learned their lesson – ok, I’m hoping they have – and will go back to the style of ball that has put Seattle in the driver’s seat of the NFC West.  Lynch is still on track for a good season – Nearly 1,650 total yards and 12 touchdowns is his current pace – but it only takes a couple of weeks without a touchdown for owners to get anxious.  So go calm their fears and taste the rainbow while you’re at it.  In other buy/sell news for 2013 Fantasy Football…

BUY

Eddie Lacy – This is the contrarian play where all the bad news surrounding Aaron Rodgers and his receivers will leak down onto Green Bay’s rushing attack.  I believe Lacy had about 20 yards of rushing before A-Rod left the game on Monday.  He finished with a career high 150 and a TD.  I’m gonna go out on a limb and say ‘Eddie will be fine’.  In fact, he might be better than fine as he’ll become the focal point of the offense until Rodgers is back.  Hint: this is also a small buy on Starks as there’ll be plenty of handoffs and dumpoffs to do around in GB for a while.

Nick Foles – Wanna see some crazy stats?  Foles has a 13:0 TD to INT ratio on the year, is averaging 8.7 yards per attempted pass – which would be good enough for 3rd in the NFL if he qualified – and if we tallied his stats on the year as 4 games (which is roughly what it is), he’d be on pace for nearly 4,000 yards passing, 4 rushing touchdowns and 52 passing TDs.  Ok, ok, ok, 7 TD passes in one game can do that to stats.  I get that.  What I’m saying, though, is I don’t think Foles and the Eagles are a fluke and if he was just a bye week filler for someone out there, see if you can pry him away before the stretch run.  I don’t know much about horses but this young Foles is starting to look like a fine Philly.

Shonn Greene – I can’t believe I’ve suggested this move not once but twice now.  AND I mentioned him in the podcast this week.  This is digustingly too much talk about a backup RB, let alone it being Shonn of all players.  He was someone’s bye week blues pickup and I think he’ll be more than that for the rest of the season.  Not a sexy flex by any means but if you want that RB3 on your team that is almost guaranteed 10-15 touches a game and all the goal line carries you could ever want, be good to the Earth and go Greene.

Victor Cruz – He’s been silent but not deadly of late.  No, I’m not talking about his bye week.  Over the last 4 weeks total, Cruz has tallied 16/204/0.  Those are stats you could die of boredom from in some countries.  To put it in perspective, Marquise Goodwin, Greg Little, and Eddie Royal have outscored Cruz over the last 4 weeks.  That’s tough company to be in for a team’s #1 receiver.  I don’t think the Giants have magically figured things out but Cruz should see the ball much more down the stretch than he has of late.  Take a salsa dip.

Jay Cutler – Even if he doesn’t return ahead of schedule as planned, his stats were strong prior to injury and the owner may need to clear some roster room for bye week needs.  Or maybe he already did it and threw him onto the FA pile.  Either way, Jay’s more than ok.

SELL

Aaron Rodgers – It’s officially discount dooouuuuble check time with A-Rod.  Depending who you talk to, the info goes from ‘it’s a week to week thing’ to ‘it’s a 3 week thing’ to ‘it’s a three week minimum thing’.  Well I’m calling it a Tony Romo thing, specifically a 2010 Romo thing.  That’s the year he busted his left non-throwing collarbone and missed the rest of the season.  He broke it in game 6 of the year.  We’re in week 9 now.  For as much as I want to believe the hopeful guidelines, I think I’d rather sell on it and see if I can scrape some value out of what might be a lost season as a Rodgers owner.  Before you ask, yes this goes for GB passing components as well.  If I got a WR2 for Jordy right now, I’d take it.  I’d be surprised if you got much for Boykin or Jones at this point but I’d be willing to hear offers.

      Who is CJax? Varden is Vereen? If you just picked up Ridley, it would make sense to me that would be the RB you drop. Because I don’t know who CJax is, I don’t know what to say about a WR upgrade. What QBs are in the FA pool? If it’s a 1QB league, I’d be surprised if you couldn’t find a good player out there you can just drop Ridley for to add.

    Hey Sky,

    Does this mean I may/should safely let go of Randall Cobb? I was going to wait until a definitive “out for rest of season,” concerning Rodgers, but Im going to need a kicker this week (I own Gostkowski and plan on using him ROS). My other options to drop are Reuben Randle & Kenny Stills.

    Thanks ahead of time,
    Ryan

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      I think unless you were playing in an extremely deep league, he should’ve been dropped the moment you knew he was out for as long as he was. Go for it.

  5. Justin says:

    Quick question in regards to the NE backfield. I have been seeing a lot of adds of Shane Vereen and as a Ridley owner I’m curious if Ridley is in danger of losing significant value. Ridley has been a beast of late. Should I be worried? IMO he does not deserve to lose playing time.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      He didn’t deserve to sit out the 1st quarter 2 weeks ago but it happened. It’s Bill, he does what he wants when he wants. I don’t trust Ridley for that reason. In theory, Vereen is going to take over Bolden’s 3rd down reps and get a carry here and there. But with the fumble issues of Ridley, it’s hard to gauge. I’m not gonna lie, though, I’m probably shopping Ridley if I own him.

  6. Bryan says:

    My RBs are Lacy, Gore, Steven Jackson and Stacy. I’m trying to sell one for either another RB or a WR. Which one should I try to sell and what should I look for in return?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Hrm, why would you sell them for another RB? You don’t really have any sell highs in that group. Do you need a WR? That would be the only thing I could see. VJax? You’re not getting Marshall/Dez types, most likely, since the names don’t match even though the production should do it.

      • Bryan says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Just looking for ways tom improve. I already have Dez and Megatron (we start three, I rotate Hilton, Jeffrey and hopefully one day Harvin). Maybe I should be looking to improve at QB instead. I’ve started Russel Wilson every week this season (no backup) and he has a BYE in week 12. So I could package Wilson and a RB for someone awesome who’s already had their BYE. Also you don’t view Stacy as a sell high? Really appreciate you replying to my comment!

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Bryan: I’m not sure why you’d view him as a sell high. Two straight 100 yard rushing games, one against the Seahawks. Doesn’t sound like a sell high to me, the kid is legit. If you can start three RBs a week, I’d personally hold. SJax would be a flex for most teams and he’s your RB4 at this point. Enjoy your depth.

          • Bryan says:
            (link)

            @Sky: I can only start two RBs

              @Bryan: One QB league? I’d rather stream. You may only be able to start 2 but all it takes is two injuries and you are scrambling to replace depth you didn’t need to get rid of. Depth is king down the stretch.

        @Sky:
        Well can’t win em all, but I will still have CJ Spiller, LeVeon Bell, Giovani Bernard and now Ray Rice. We only start two RB’s and two receivers and my two WR’s will be Hilton and Thomas going forward. I am middle of the pack right now, and with the talk of decreased work load for Knowshon, I wanted to take a chance to see if I could get lightning in a bottle with Rice or Spiller.

        @Sky: Thank you, sir. Looks like I made the right move with dumping Sproles for Shorts for this week. Then I’ll have a free Vereen (picked up out of the FA pool to put in IR slot).

        Much appreciated, as usual.

        One more for the road… Would you bench Stafford for Rivers? I don’t think I will, but I have a shootout kind of feeling for Rivers which might bode well for a monster week. But not sure I want to bench tried and true Stafford.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Rivers is so up/down. I think you’re gonna have a hard time going wrong there but I’d probably stay Stafford. Bears defense has struggled all year to contain pretty much everyone…well, excluding Seneca Wallace.

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Ha, yeah. I’m most likely going Stafford. He’s just been so damn consistent. I don’t trust Rivers nearly as much, but he was a GREAT bye week fill in. And I hate to have to cheer on my QB against my real team. Damn you fake football…damn you…

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Haha, yeah. Rivers finishing with a 400 yard game with 3 TDs wouldn’t surprise me but I trust Stafford to perform week in and week out at this point. Too hard to sit.

              • Wilsonian says:
                (link)

                @Sky: Thanks man, I’m in that same boat. Guess I’ll leave 40 points on my bench and hope for the best. HA!

    Bye Weeks are hurting me at WR. Had to drop B. Tate to pick up Wright last week since Blackmon got suspended. Now Gordon and Bryant are coming up on bye. Question is…should I deal L. Bell for A.

    Do you think Keenum will be the QB in Texas week 12? Need a week 12 bye week replacement and want to be ahead of the game. Texans will have the Jags that week. Other option is Cutler who should be back by then and will face the Rams.

        Yeah, not really sure why you feel you need to make trades when a player who threw for 350 and 3 TDs is available in your FA pool. Pick up Keenum and watch if Cutler is starting or not. I’d start McCown over Keenum at this point based on matchup.

    I know rankings come out tomorrow, but this is not really a rankings issue. Panthers D has been very good week after week. They play the niners this week. Should I drop a serviceable player off my roster to pick up a Defense that has a better matchup?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’m not thrilled with the next few weeks for the Panthers. Two straight bad matchups and I don’t know if they’re at the elite level to hold onto. If you have someone you don’t use and probably don’t need, you can stream, just realize you might be doing it for longer than 1 week.

    Hey Sky… need your thoughts on a trade.
    Give: Witten, L.Moore, B.Tate… Get: Fitzgerald, McFadden
    I’m the points leader, and currently in 3rd place. Would play Fitzgerald in FLEX to replace Houston RBs, and stash McFadden for possible playoffs fill-in. Or I can stick to my initial offer of Witten/Moore for Fitz. Thanks!

    QB – Brees
    WR – Bryant
    WR – Cruz
    WR – Garcon
    RB – Foster
    RB – Forte
    TE – Graham
    RB/WR – L.Miller
    BN – Witten
    BN – B.Tate
    BN – L.Moore
    BN – Boykin
    BN – M.Bush
    BN – Helu
    BN – Dan Thomas
    BN – Cotchery

      DMC has injured the same hammy…don’t think you should be buying there and Fitz has been extremely inconsistent. I wouldn’t do that trade.

      • supra says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Gotcha thanks. Last thought… Witten is wasting away on my bench, you don’t think swapping him and Lance Moore for a better Flex play in Fitzgerald is smart? Or does Witten as TE insurance outweigh the upgrade from one of Foster/BTate/Moore.

        • Sky

          Sky says:

          I don’t think an extremely inconsistent Fitz is an upgrade though…

    12 team non-ppr – Need to start 2 RBs/2WRs/1Rb-WR FLEX out of these (several of my regulars are on byes):

    MJD
    Shonn
    Nicks
    Terrance Williams
    Kendall Wright
    Riley Cooper

    I’m leaning toward sitting Wright because I think Tenn will lean on the running game. Alternatively, I could drop Wright for any of these: Donald Brown, Daniel Thomas, Brandon Jacobs, Cotchery, Marlon Brown, LaFell or Baldwin.

    What do you think – sit Wright or someone else I have or make a move and start someone new?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      As of right now, it’s MJD for me but I haven’t really fleshed out rankings yet. Either way, it wouldn’t be Wright for me. Not seeing a reason to drop Wright for guys that have performed poorly by comparison to him…

    Hey sky, so you’re not concerned about the stacked boxes and just generally worse offense for Lacy? I was concerned a few days ago and we discussed it a little bit but now I’m happily surprised as a Lacy owner to see him listed as a buy. You think his value goes up or down without Rodgers?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I kinda covered my stance on him above, pretty much hits on how I see him. Not sure I can add more to the argument at this point. His value stays static but people will think he needs to be sold for less than he is.

    Okay, this is a big one, and it would involve SELLING Marshawn Lynch which I’m not too happy about…

    I GIVE Marshawn Lynch & AJ Green
    I GET Welker, Gio and Foles

    I kind of like it. Welker & Green are basically a wash. Gio is certainly a downgrade, but not that much. And Foles might be better than my QB, Luck, and has a way better schedule… plus I might be able to trade Luck for an WR or RB upgrade.

    1 PPR, total points league. Roster as follows:

    QB: Luck, Pryor
    RB: Lynch, Ridley, Vereen, Stacy, Miller, DWilson
    WR: AJ Green, TY Hilton, Douglas, Dobson, GTate

    Thanks

      @flanwagon: You cant do that trade with no gurantee Foles keeps the job.

        @web:

        There are no gurantees in fantasy football. Marshawn Lynch could get hurt and be on IR this time next week, who knows… I’m willing to gamble that Foles keeps the job. Plus, I could keep Luck as insurance.

          • flanwagon says:
            (link)

            @Sky: In these league, which is total points (no playoffs) I’m trying to upgrade at QB. I’m thinking that Foles will be better than Luck the rest of the way… but I see your point.

              Sky says:
              (link)

              You’re downgrading two positions to maybe – and that’s a big maybe – upgrade one position that you don’t need an upgrade in. I love Foles but its not like you’re starting Big Ben every week. You have two good QBs. Enjoy that and don’t make things more complicated.

    One more for ya:

    I’ve been riding Carolina to the promised land. They have been damn solid, but I don’t like the next few weeks for them. I can snag Tennessee (facing the Jags) for them right now, and roll the dice there this week. Do it?

      Yeah, I’m not keeping the Panthers during this 2 week stretch myself. I’m not as hip on the Titans this week as others are but at least they’re at home. Haven’t done rankings yet, though, so I don’t have much else to say.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I grabbed the Titans for now. I can swap in someone else if the matchup works. I don’t trust the Panthers in the next two weeks so I figured I’d need a new one. Thanks.

    Hey sky, what’s your reasoning for not being big on bell? He’s been pretty consistent so far and seems to be a big workhorse, albeit the offense isn’t great. Im guessing you would package him and Cecil shorts for reggie bush? I have Andre Johnson, dez and Calvin as my other wr. Thanks for the input

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Yeah I’d do that. The offense and his o-line are pretty underwhelming this year. Also think he dances too much and leaves yardage out there. Not good for a guy with o-line woes.

  30. Richie says:

    Hey Sky, I have another big Gronk trade to mull over. I didn’t go through with the last one and it ended up working out great.

    So this is for a 12 team non-PPR H2H. My team is ridiculously stacked:

    QB: Cam
    RB: Forte, Morris, Stacy, Andre Brown, Gio, Vereen
    WR: Nelson, VJax, Josh Gordon, Keenan Allen, Harry D
    TE: Cameron, Fleener

    My buddy needs to make a serious playoff run, and is offering me his Gronk and Ivory for my Stacy, Vjax, and Douglas. What do you think?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      With Seneca Wallace throwing to Nelson I’m not so sure that’s the right move for you…

      • Richie says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I feel like I’m giving up too much. I know Gronk is great but the depth has given me a 4 game win streak and I know injuries can pop up at any moment.

    Who would you rather lose as a throw-in in a trade. Greg Jennings or Boykin?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Either? Probably Boykin. Passing game just got ugly in GB for a long while. As we know the Bears haven really stopped many on defense this year and Seneca couldn’t complete a pass to save his life on Monday

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Yeah, watching that game, it was pretty epically ugly. Chicago was literally putting 8 in the box every down, with one safety high. I was loving it as a Bears fan.

        Guess I’m just reading all sorts of shizz as to when A-Rod will be back. But if I can upgrade WR with this trade and Roddy White frig a fracking plays sometime this year, it won’t matter who I lose there.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Yeah, Lions or Bears should take that division easily now. Just a question of who unless GB pulls a miracle QB out of their butts before long.

          I think most of the stuff surrounding A-Rod is BS. He’s gonna be out for a while. GB is trying to pretend he’s not and they’re full of it.

  33. Friar says:
    (link)

    In a league where the playoffs start in Week 11, this week’s game is literally win-or-go-home for me. Which makes it a bad time for JC-Superstar to go out on bye.

    My current RBs are Charles (bye), Stacy, and Andre Brown. I’m starting a TE as my Flex this week, since I have Gates and Julius. 12-team, non-PPR .

    Would you recommend any of the following trades, knowing that I HAVE to win this week, but also don’t want to compromise my team for the playoff run if I do win?

    1. Charles for Moreno
    2. Charles for Spiller and L. Bell
    3. Charles for Spiller and Ridley (on bye)

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I don’t like those trades, personally

      • Friar says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Do you not like them because of personal preference, or because they don’t offer enough value for Charles. I ask because (PLOT TWIST) I’m actually the other owner in this situation, trying to trade for Charles to solidify my playoff roster, knowing the Charles owner can’t afford to lose this week.

        I’m into the playoffs already, so this week’s game doesn’t much matter to me. What would you propose as a RB package that might get the Charles owner to bite.

        My RBs: Peterson, Moreno, Ridley (bye), L. Bell, Spiller, L. Miller

        • Cram It says:
          (link)

          @Friar: Who cares why he doesn’t like them, if you’re actually the other owner. Which means he DOES like the trades for you, so go make one. And while you’re ate it, get your schizo personalities in order.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Friar: So, can you explain why you worded the question completely backwards? Doesn’t really help me help you and makes me review the same question twice for no good reason. Just post what you want to ask next time please.

          I’d want Charles in every instance in that case which kinda was already answered by my first statement.

          • Friar says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Sorry for the re-work. My issue is that I feel all those trades would help me tremendously, but my challenge is figuring out which of these (or other combinations) might be attractive to the Charles owner. My question really isn’t whether I should offer a trade, I’m trying to determine what offer has the best chance of being accepted (the other owner historically accepts or rejects offers without negotiating).

            I initially asked the question from the other owner’s perspective because that’s the opinion I feel I need the most help determining. If this wasn’t helpful (and I gather it wasn’t), I certainly won’t do so again.

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              I’m not him, though, that’s the problem. I don’t make trades that will hurt me later on out of what feels like desperation. He might. Just saying it doesn’t give you the perspective or angle you’re looking for. People are different so you can’t apply how I’d perceive it as how he would.

              • Friar says:
                (link)

                @Sky: Totally fair point. I guess I was just hoping you (unbiased by knowing my side) might better approximate his perspective than I’m able to do, but I agree you and he may not perceive things the same way.

                The other guy’s a good player — unlikely to make a self-sabotaging trade out of desperation — so I’m actually looking for a trade that offers fair value for Charles, but it sounds like my RB lineup doesn’t lend itself to a trade offer that would entice a rational Charles owner.

                Thanks, as always, for the advice, and sorry about the question format.

    Hey Sky-

    Quick trade question for you. I’ve been offered Frank Gore for Demaryius Thomas. I’m currently rostering:

    QB – Stafford & RGIII
    RB – Forte, Mike James, Shonn Greene & Chris Ivory
    WR – DT, Cecil Shorts, Amendola, Steve Smith, Riley Cooper & DeAndre Hopkins
    TE – Gates

    This is a standard scoring league (1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1 Flex), no ppr….the deal seems pretty even from a points output perspective, but Gore seems to be the more reliable/consistent player this season due to all of the options at WR in Denver. Just wondering what your take is, do you think this trade would improve my overall roster?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

    Trying to put together a package for Newton with Matt Ryan festering in my lineup.

    Matt Ryan + DeMarco Murray for Cam Newton + Fred Jackson?

    My RB’s: Gio B, Zac Stacy, DeMarco, T Rich, Knowshon, Benard Pierce
    His RB’s: Spiller, Fred Jackson, Lamar Miller, Woodhead, Mendenhall

    OR… -hold- (I also have Pryor… but despise carrying 2 QB’s)

    Thanks for the quality help and article as always!

      @Jiggy Nits:

      Thanks!

      I think you should just drop Ryan if you have Pryor unless you’re going to tell me the only QB on waivers is Seneca Wallace and Glennon. Sounds like you should stream.

    What in god’s name should i do with Trent Richardson? Sell at his absolute lowest value? Or wait for a good game and then sell? WILL THAT GAME EVEN COME?? AHHHHHHHHHHHHH

      @Nathan: Put him on your bench until he does something besides make you say AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Then decide. Unless a clear upgrade comes along in the FA pool, I’m holding. I have Trent on a couple of teams rotting. It sucks but it’s better than dropping and watching him evolve.

    Which side?

    Decker Ellington and Mike James for Spiller Stevie Johnson and woodhead

      @Kevin: I’d take the Spiller side if my WRs were good without Decker but it’s a gamble.

    Need to flip one of my rbs for a wr and a new left tackle. Rbs on the team are R. Rice, R. Bush, Z. Stacy, A. Ellington, L. Miller, S. Greene and J. Stewart. Wrs are A. Green, E. Sanders and M. Brown. Which RB would you consider offering up for Terrance Williams?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      @Mike Pouncey: Ha, good luck about the LT…Terrance I’d try Greene, Stewart or Ellington. Rice is just a throwaway at his current production.

    I currently reside I. 1st place at 8-1

    Problem:

    I lost Julio Jones which isn’t a problem when you see my WR corps, but A Rod hurts Nelson’s value a tiny bit.

    My concern is RB:

    QB – Ryan
    WR – Green
    WR – Nelson
    WR – Andre Johnson
    RB – Foster
    RB – Rice
    TE – Gronk
    B – Cameron (both TEs ok bye WOW)
    B – Amendola
    B – Shorts
    B – P Thomas
    B – Andre Brown
    B – Boykin
    K – Prater
    DEF – Den

    I need a RB

    I got offered MJD for my Cecil Shorts

    What do you think? I need help with Rice and Foster hurt and playing awful football. It’s time to look towards the Playoffs and Nelson took a bit of a hit w Rodgers out.

    • Matthew says:
      (link)

      @Matthew: or would you trade Gronk for ALF? Or offer Gronk for a top RB and stick w Cameron?

      • Sky

        Sky says:

        I’d prefer to stay w/Gronk there

      You need RB help so it’s valid/fair. I’m not against it but Nelson is now your WR3 by a hefty margin. Just keep that in mind.

        @Sky:

        I currently have RG3 as QB but I have lost 2 weeks to his incosistency.

        Im wondering if I should take the Brady deal as he should be more consistent than Rg3. (Then hopefully trade RG3) or Accept a seperate deal which has me trading

        My Jordy Nelson and Reed for his Pierre Garcon and Cecil Shorts.

        Thanks for the advice.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I’d prefer the second deal. RG3 is frustrating but I’m willing to wait him out or stream QBs. In a 1 QB league, I’m sure there are decent weekly plays.

    Sky,

    I was offered Vincent jackson / MJD / Danny woodhead for Russell Wilson +Moreno.

    My WRS are Keenan allen / Calvin Johnson / Tim Wright / Mike Brown / Dobson

    My RBs are AP/Moreno/Stacy/ Spiller

    He has Cruz/A.J.Green/Vincent Jackson and RB – Ridley/Sproles

    Do you want me to ask Spiller + Cruz or just do not do this deal?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      It’s fair but I’d be worried about Moreno moving forward. I’d make him a part of a two for two where you upgrade at WR and downgrade at RB.

  57. Sparty Scott says:
    (link)

    Should I trade Keenan Allen and Ray Rice for Knowshon and Golden Tate? My other WR are Garcon, Boykin, K. Wright, Heyward-Bey, and Randle. My other RB are R. Bush, MJD, P. Thomas, and Andre Brown. I start 3 WR, 2 RB, and a flex. I feel like it’s a huge downgrade at WR, and if Andre Brown is the real deal, I might be fine at RB. Is Knowshon too good to pass up?

      You’re not getting much in return for Luck there. Think I’d rather hold if that’s the market.

  59. David says:

    In a huge dilemma now. In 10-team ppr league and this is my starting lineup going in…

    QB Big Ben
    RB1 Woodhead
    RB2 Starks
    WR1 DThomas
    WR2 Shorts
    WR3 Torrey
    TE Clay
    WR/RB Wright
    WR/TE Boykin

    Lost Rodgers & McFadden this week and also have Tate, Wilson, Powell, Ivory, Cobb on my bench right now.

    Need to liquidate my assets just to field a team. That means buy buy to thomas, shorts, torrey, woodhead.

    Pondering a deal which would get me Garcon, Terrence Williams, Rice for Thomas and Shorts.

    On that note would you do Ridley, Alshon, Bolding for Thomas and Torrey?

    Also, under what circumstances would you peddle Rodgers for? What type of return would tickle your fancy?

    Some advise please.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      It seems like you’re trying to make bigger trades than you need to. Woodhead is a solid RB2, do a 1-1 WR for an RB if you’re trying to make up for the loss of DMC.

      I gave my opinion on Rodgers above. You need to pick what you’re willing to accept. He’s a choose your own adventure at this point in terms of value in return. I don’t think he’ll be worth anything before long so I’m selling him for what I can get.

      I would’ve dropped Cobb in a 10 team upon the injury…he’s a wasted roster spot for that size of league unless you have him in an IR spot.

      • David says:
        (link)

        Not really convinced how a 1 for 1 will allow me to field a competative team. I was banking on Cobb returning at least for the playoffs. Pre-injury my team was good enough to make the playoffs but now doesn’t look so hot to me. Maybe you see a silver lining somewhere that you can enlighten me further perhaps?

        • Sky

          Sky says:

          You’re trying to destroy an area that is still a strength – WR – to get soso players in return that could just as easily be found on your bench. If you’re trying to improve your RB situation, how are you helping yourself by trading away performing WR for Ray Rice and average WRs? You seem like you’re making trades because you think you need to make a trade but aren’t evaluating the talent you’re getting in return. Focus your efforts and get what you need.

          In a 10 team league non keeper, holding onto a guy who might return week 14 or 15 for this long is a dead roster spot. I’d grab upside on waivers instead especially with the Rodgers news

    How do you feel about Case Keenum for dynasty’s? Long term QB1?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Could be. QB1 could be QB12 in a 12 team league, though. I’d view him that way. THink he’s due for a 3 INT game with his style of play. Little too wild right now to lock him in week in and week out but maybe a season under his belt can improve those tendencies.

  61. donut says:
    (link)

    Knowshon + TY Hilton too much for Marshawn?

    Other WRs are Dez, Garcon, Colston, Roddy White
    Other RBs are Charles, L. Bell, L. Miller, A. Brown

    start 2RB, 2WR, 1 Flex

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      You should be getting a 2-2 there. It’s too much.

  62. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    if i have
    rodgers/cutler
    moreno/bush/charles/j.bell/vereen/martin(possibly having to drop martin to get a third QB till cutler’s back)/miller
    dola/nelson/d-jax/floyd (getting thin here, used to have sanders)
    bennett

    1.would it be at all wise to attempt to trade moreno (he’s my third stringer, we can only play 2 RB per week) and nelson to get v-jax and wright. I could either keep both TE after that or keep wright and throw bennett away for another WR.
    2. I still want floyd over crotchery at this point, yes? crotchery’s got a bit more pts.

  63. The Fridge says:

    I got offered McCoy, Antonio Brown and Rodgers for my Rivers, DJax and Jordy in a .5 PPR.

    Roster:
    QB – Cam/ Rivers
    RB – ADP
    RB – Moreno
    FL – B Tate / R Jennings
    WR – Jordy
    WR – DJax
    WR – Riley Cooper
    TE – Wright / Gronk (bye)
    be – Harvin
    Be – Ball
    Be – Crabtree
    RB – J Charles (bye)

    My thought was to do the deal then flip Jennings for a WR upgrade. Thoughts?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Interesting trade…I’d say that’s really McCoy & Brown for your Rivers/DJax. Rodgers I have very little faith in ROS. No chance you couldn’t just narrow it down to McCoy and Brown for Rivers/DJax? Would make more sense to me.

  64. Scott says:

    Sunshine Ray! The clouds so gray! Do I stray from you oh’ Sunshine Ray?

    Stick Shonne or Cooper as my flex spot instead of Ray Ray? (Nonppr) That Green matchup against JAX so tasty. And that chemistry with Foles and Cooper worth a gamble. Heck it’s drizzly here in Seattle. Probably since to sit Mr. 2.7 yards Ray.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Thanks for the poetry slam! Ray Ray is near a no play play at this point. I just don’t trust Rice at this point. Greene makes sense to me. I like Cooper but think Greene is gonna have a great week.

    Alright I need your opinion my brethren Seahawks fan.

    12 team PPR and my team looks like this

    QB R.Wilson
    RB Morris
    RB Gore
    WR Decker
    WR Hilton
    TE Gronkowski (Fleener this week)
    Flex- Bernard, Woodhead, Jeffrey

    Can I get your thoughts on my team and who I should start in my flex this week please?

    Bernard vs. BAL
    Jeffrey vs DET
    Woodhead vs DEN

    Thanks Sky

    Go Hawks!

      @GoHawks: In a PPR, it has to be Woodhead for me. I just posted rankings this morning, you can get a feel for how I view your team for this week there. But overall, I think the only thing you could really want or need there is a different QB. As much as I love RW3, I don’t think his recent production sustains as most of it has happened while – and because – we’ve been struggling offensively.
