In Topic: RB to Exploit-Avoid Week 5

22 October 2011 - 01:15 PM

I don't know if my other post was deleted by you or the big dogs, but there are alot of guys that would love your "RBs for Exploit/Aviod" to come back out of retirement.

I just picked him up and will start him over Hillis (obviously), Murray and Torain. You have to expect Cleveland to put eight in the box and dare Whitehurst to beat them. However, he is getting the bulk of the carries and is a good receiver. also, fat chance Cleveland gets so far ahead that Seattle abandons the run. He tore up the Giants on the road, I'm either chasing points or catching the wave. As far as the rest of the season he has four tought matchups 9 vs Dal, 10 vs Bal, 12 vs WA and 15 vs SF but 3/4 of those are at home. He also has good matchups 2 vs Rams and week 16 vs AZ. I think he could be compared to SJax. Good RB on a bad team that will run or catch to get his.

I feel your pain, I share it. Torain has another tasty matchup but will he get the carries? I don't like Hardesty vs Sea. They have a pretty good run def and McCoy will not alter that. Which Dallas RB will get the carries especially in the red zone against a bad Ram run defense? If you pick right you're a genius. Hope Choice gets traded today and the "choice" gets easier. I have Lynch still available coming off a solid start at NYG. I'm leaning at picking him up. Good Luck

In Topic: Strategy for 0-5 team

I feel your pain. I used DD, LD, subscribed to FBG, the Hubble and Draftsharks. I loved the team I drafted and LD still computes me to have the second best starters and the best overall team. Alot of my issues have been a rash of injuries. At 1-4 I made a bold move this week trading my backup QB Romo + AJ and Beanie for Schaub, Mathews and Moss. Like you I have to win now. I think mathews is enough better than Beanie to give up the difference on AJs future and a quality back up QB. The one thing I would say about relying too heavily on the computer programs that are DD and LD is they don't react to reality quickly enough. They keep a high-ranked player high ranked too long and don't give credit to break out players (IMO) In think they are geared to not overreact to one or two good/bad games, and in some cases rightly so. The problem is when you go completely with the rankings you are too slow to trade declining players while they still have value or jump on the Steve Smiths, Fred Jacksons or even Cam Newtons of this year. Strategy wise you have to maximize your starters. Take your best player and try to trade to upgrade two or more other starting positions. Try to take advantage of other guys bye worries and swing to the fence. You don't need any singles, you need a HR

I also matters on your record. If you are 4-1 or 3-2 and right in the thick of it you need to be more conservative. If you are like me and 1-4 you can't wait around for AJ to get better. We keep getting mixed signals from Houston. He could be back at 75% next week or he could be several weeks until he is at 100%. So, like I said if you are doing well you can afford to wait for AJ. If you are falling behind... you might need to make a bold move. The one thing none of us can tell is if your league is trade happy or not. In my league we probably see 5-6 trades per year. People are either too suspicious they are getting taken or just too cheap. Good Luck!
