I dropped Julius Thomas end of last season after losing patience and acquired Rob Housler.
Next my Best TE was arrested on Murder Charges. Hernandez
My Best RB was traded to the colts after week 2 and is now backup RB Trent Richardson
My Best WR was out for the season. Harvin
I drafted EJ Manuel #2 overall in Rookie Draft (2QB league) to trade for RB upgrade. never happened.
I drafted Zach Sudfeld in the 4th round.
With Harvin out My best WR was Stevie Johnson. They traded his QB and gave him a rookie.
My next best WR became Eric Decker...whose team acquire Wes Welker so I'm left wondering if he'll get any targets.
I traded Reuben Randle for #14 overall pick to acquire FA Dennis Pitta during preseason to fill TE void.
I end up taking Zac Sudfeld in round 4 of our rookie draft. Pitta was ruled out for season 3 days after I made trade.
1st year commissioner of this 10yo dynasty league and the owners tried to mutinty over some dumb #### calling it the gayest league ever...I'm playing one of the more vocal critics in the finals.
I used my #1 Waiver option on Toby Gerhart after week 14. Gerhart ruled out week 15.
You know things are rough when you're pissed McCluster and Gerhart are rule OUT. I've had to go deep... you that barely read section where they only recommend a player in "Really deep league or deep dynasty radar..." yeah, I'm there right now. I'm comparing Kick Return Stats among WR/RB Flex players to see who might be able to make up some ground for me since Stevie Johnson, Cecil Shorts is out.
I have to beat:
QB Manning, Cousins
WR: A Brown, Amendola, SMoss
RB JCharles, AMorris,
W/R DeAngelo Williams
W/R Chris Johnson
To this I'm starting:
Rivers, Alex Smith
DJackson, Keenan Allen, EDecker
And 2 flex players I'm trying to decide between McCluster, Ace Sanders, Trent Richardson, Marquis Goodwin, Greg Little, Keshawn Martin, (We get KR points) for my final two spots.
I'm also unemployed and not eligible for unemployment so I'm looking for a job.
I actually/literally have TURF TOE.
It's a running injury that's been lingering for a solid 3 years.
This year has been the worst. Every time i bend my toe it hurts and resprains the ligaments etc.
You do not want your player to have this. If he does just hope they shut him down for season to get better.
I'm 6'5 275 (now) but in April during a track workout I had my group run 40yd dash in honor of combine/draft.
I weighed 260lbs then still had turf toe and ran a 4.9. Maybe I could play TE for NE? I was a g
Decisions that have helped:
I used that #14 pick to acquire Keenan Allen
I held/hoarded starting QBs in my 2 QB. They are trade leverage. I wasn't able to trade and since then values for Rivers, Tannehill, Alex Smith have increased.... Bradford and EJ Manuel not as much.
I kept the faith! Going into week 10 with 4 hrs left of trade deadline...I was sitting a #6 and final playoff spot. Mediocre team in tough division. I am offered #2014 1st. Arian Foster Maclin, Hopkins for Matt Forte from an owner who was tied for #1 playoff spot. I turned him down. Stating I hadn't given up yet. I still think I have a chance. I finished in the #3 playoff seeding and he finished in the #4th playoff seeding. I ended up with the best route to the title game in the actual playoffs. He just knocked off the best team and defending champion whose roster looks more like the All-Madden squad.
Other decisions that have helped. I tried to read Football guys.com stuff w/o getting too hyped. Look for talent. Write it down and remember it. Sometimes you try to strike too ea
Good Luck to anyone in the title game or winning any money. All you need to do is make the playoffs and see if you can make something happen.
I'm going to try to keep things going. I'm a 20pts underdog. I like it that way.
