    what do you think of ronnie brown for the 3 weeks or so that ryan mathews is out. He’s not exciting but I think he can be a decent flex play in deep leagues.

      Not a big believer in Ronnie and I really cooled on Mathews for 2012. I’m more interested in Le’Ron McClain at this point but admittedly, that backfield is a mess in my mind.

    QB Matt Ryan
    RB Lynch
    RB Charles
    WR Colston
    WR Dez
    WR Desean Jackson
    TE Aaron Hernandez
    Flex Maclin
    BN RB’s: Beanie, Tate, Daniel Thomas
    BN WR’s: Torrey Smith, Holmes, Moore
    As you can see I have a lot of depth but no studs. I got 2 trade offers. One is Rodgers, MJD, and a scrub for Ryan, Charles, and Desean. The other is Murray for Beanie Maclin and Moore (he also owns rice). I countered the second owner with Rice for Beanie Desean Smith and Moore (his best wr is heywerd bey) and also countered with rice and murray for beanie maclin moore and mjd. He declined both. I’m considering making the first deal and holding out on the second (since he’s screwed if he doesn’t deal with someone and i dont see a need to do his deal once i do the rodgers deal).
    What do you think about these two deals? And any other players I should target? And should I just try to flip Smith and one of the Philly WR’s for a top end WR?
    Thanks

      Trade one is pretty risky. Could be great, though. Depends on your risk tolerance whether it’s worth it since Rodgers/MJD are top 10 material. Confused about the second trade…how did you offer him MJD? You probably don’t have the parts to land Rice and you’d have to overspend on Murray given the trade offers you’re showing me. I’d hold there.

      Who was your first round pick?

      • Zachary Neugut says:

        @Sky, first year of an auction keeper not a snake. I can keep 3 guys for up to 3 years with no price increase on their current salaries. Rodgers was 70 MJD was 74 Murray was about 40 and Rice like 75 so I probably wouldn’t keep any of those guys. Ryan was $6 My top 4 WR’s were $12-18 (other 3 were 5-7 including Smith for 7 which I love), lynch 46, charles 39, and no other RB (including Beanie) for more than 8. I’m playing for this year first so I don’t want to get too bogged down in prices.
        And the second trade would be contingent on me making the first deal so I’d net trade beanie maclin moore ryan jackson and charles for rodgers rice and murray. Although he rejected that deal.
        Do you think I’m competitive without making any deals? because I think without any top end talent I’m destined for a third place finish

          Ah, gotcha. You should be competitive, but it’s hard to fully know with keeper/auction leagues because it’s never clear what other teams look like or could look like. I think you took the right route. Only concerns are Dez and Charles. Like Colston/Lynch/D-Jax/Maclin/Smith. Your back up RBs are solid as well so that’s good. Don’t mind the idea of trying a two for one you mentioned for a studly WR if you can keep Colston.

          • Zachary Neugut says:
            (link)

            @Sky, You think I should do the Rodgers/MJD/scrub for Ryan/Charles/Desean? And do you think MJD is better than Charles?

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              MJD is definitely better than Charles if he’s not a holdout. Like I said, it’s a risky trade. I’d do it as you’re getting the better players, just realize it could blow up in your face if MJD doesn’t play right away.

    @sky

    10 team mixed keeper league (keep 5)

    $300 cap

    Vick $28
    R Bush $18
    McFadden $39
    Dez Bryant $25
    Calvin Johnson $54
    Mike Wallace $30
    Stevan Ridley $12
    Jonathon Stewart $14
    Shonn Greene $17

    trying to decide on 5 keepers

    also the team that has demarco murray $39 and mike turner $23 would be willing to trade either for bush at $18

      Sky says:

      $300 cap? Just want to make sure I’m reading that right. Wouldn’t be interested in that trade for Turner/Murray.

      Megatron/Wallace/Bush/DMC/Vick. If not many QBs are being kept, I’d go with Stewart instead of Vick.

      • Wieters never prosper says:
        (link)

        @Sky,

        yes 300 cap. All the top qbs are kept, so I think i have to keep Vick.
        I agree with you, the only thing i was thinking was maybe keeping Dez over wallace, hoping people would be scared of the holdout, and i could buy him back cheaper.

        • Sky

          Sky says:

          Interesting about the $300 cap. Not a common one, that’s for sure.

          He’s due back to camp this week, don’t know if you’re going to get your opportunity.

          • Wieters never prosper says:
            (link)

            @Sky,

            yeah, its a holdover, we’ve always used $300 in our longterm baseball keeper league, so i guess everyone felt more comfortable (?), but it is odd choice. I have a chance to get MJD (at $47) in a trade without giving up anyone that i’m considering keeping, is he worth keeping at that $ over any of my listed keeper choices?

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              You kinda already have your question mark top 5 RB in DMC. Depends on how much risk you wanna take on but I could see not keeping Bush or Wallace for him. Think your current set up is a bit safer, though.

    8th pick in a 10 teamer, 0.5 ppr, 6 pts for pass td. who do you like after the top 7 (foster, mccoy, rice, rodgers, brady, megatron, brees)?

    If any of the above 7 fall to me, would you take the top7 guy instead of the player you like best if they are gone?

    Thx.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Probably would go Chris Johnson or DMC.

      Not really understanding the last question. I get the ‘if they fall to me’ part but don’t understand the ‘instead of the player you like best if they are gone’? If you’re asking me whether I’d take who I listed as 8th over a top 7 guy, probably not.

      • paulzone says:
        (link)

        @Sky, yeah that last part was confusing but you got it., I am hoping Brees falls to me…but if not, then trying to decide b/t Chris Johnson, DMC or Forte…You helped narrow it down to two of them…Tough call. Thanks.

    Hi Sky…protect J Charles, MJD, or H Nicks? Very worried about MJD.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Do you mean who do you keep? If so, to be honest all three have their risks and MJD has the highest output capability of the three. Would still go MJD.

    Let me know what y’all think. Just finished my draft. Any glaring holes?

    QB Brees
    RB Gore, Turner
    WR Roddy, DeSean
    TE Vernon
    FLEX Hernandez, Benson
    D/ST Ravens
    K Akers
    BN QB Dalton, Luck
    BN RB Ronnie Brown
    BN WR Blackmon, Michael Floyd
    BN TE Fleener

    thanks

      PPR? How many teams? These are helpful things to know when evaluating your team.

      I hate to say this but your team looks like it’s going to have some issues. Turner as an RB2 is ok but Gore as your #1 is going to make things difficult. Plus you drafted 3 TEs. That’s two TEs too much because now you have no depth at RB, something you’ll need owning Gore as your #1 RB. Having 3 QBs in a 1 QB league didn’t help this either. Sorry, I wish I had something good to say but your team looks like it will struggle this year. Try and move Aaron Hernandez or Vernon Davis for RB help and see what is out there on the FA in terms of RBs so that you don’t have to hold onto Fleener. See if someone is interested in Dalton or Luck as backup QBs for another RB.

      • Sportcourt says:

        @Sky, 10 teams, no ppr. For receiving it’s set up with 1 point per 10 receiving yards, 6 points for TD, 1 point for 40+ TD rec, 2 points for 50+ TD rec, 2 points for 2pt rec conversion, 4 points for 100-199 yard game, 5 points for 200+ yard game.

        Thanks for the eval — RB was the first thing that I saw when I finished. There are no starters left to pick up on waivers so a trade will have to happen. Quite a few were on auto-draft so the draft went by very quickly and obviously RBs fly off the board with pre-ranks.

        Any additional help would be awesome. Thanks!

          Yeah, I’m sticking with my original statement. Start shooting those trades out.
