  1. x2 I would have hit accept the moment I saw that offer. Some guys here are over rating Alshon Jeffery - he may be good, but he isn't a proven STUD ff WR.
  2. For me, the decision to trade for Olsen would depend on two questions. Is your league PPR, and does it have enhanced TE scoring? What is the price you have to pay to get Olsen, if it is more than a late round pick, then I would pass and attempt to draft him during the draft. Doesn't your team have any other keeper options on your roster?
  3. Allen Robinson - DJ is nice, but he had one huge game against a very weak defense and most everything else is average. If 2016 is a good year for DJ, then I will be more of a believer. Allen Robinson, all the way - I would not consider that offer at all.
  4. Two points that I would have to consider: 1) How much do you have invested in Josh Gordon 2) How much WR depth do you have without Gordon Josh Gordon is one huge question mark like stated above, and I own him, but I got him off the ww back when he was a rookie and have always kept him on my roster since then. I don't care about how much risk Josh is because I don't have much invested in him. I would deal Josh, but only if that offer pays for a player with some of his up side. If I would get a proven less risky top 10 WR with a lot still left in the tank, I would probably deal Josh. A late 2017 first is questionable, if the offer was from a team likely to finish in the middle of the pack, I would consider it, if it is from a team likely to go deep into the playoffs, I would pass. I would consider the first two points along with how risk adverse you are and make a decision about trading Josh. Everyone manages their teams a little differently, and every situation is different. Hope this helps!
  5. I sure wouldn't accept his first offer of Elliot and Williams. Elliot and Moncrief is a high price for Gurley and Boyd, but I wouldn't call it totally outrageous, if I owned Gurley. Many people are expecting and hoping for big things for Moncrief this year. If you could get Elliot and Moncrief for Gurley and Boyd, I would definitely make that trade. Everyone sees fantasy football values differently, so some owners may see Elliot and Moncrief too much of a price for Gurley and Boyd. If you really like this deal, I would go back to the owner and see if you could get this deal done if you sweeten your counter a little bit with adding something small like a middle round draft choice in next year's draft, and if he doesn't take it, then let that trade offer die for now.
  6. Sorry if the initial post is confusing, I am just listing my possible starters and part of my bench while giving out a general description of my league. My league's starting line up requirements are complex to explain, we start only 1 QB and five skilled offensive positions, one or two RBs, any where from zero to two TEs and up to four WRs, but no more than five total offensive skilled position starters. I am fortunate to have two good QBs and TEs to choose from, when I make my starting line ups. In an attempt to build up my WR depth, I am asking what would be a good offer to make to get either one or both of the following WRs: BROWN, JOHN ARI WR or SHEPARD, STERLING NYG WR MY back up WRs are: ADAMS, DAVANTE GBP WR GORDON, JOSH CLE WR ROBERTS, SETH OAK WR WALLACE, MIKE BAL WR So, I am looking to build up the depth of my WRs. Any advise is greatly appreciated because when I make trade offers, I tend to lose objectivity of player values. Ideally, I would love to have my offer consist of a package only of RBs (not Gurley or Elliot) and / or 2017 draft picks, otherwise I create a weak area on my team that I would not be comfortable with. Again thanks in advance for any response.
  7. I play in a 12 team PPR league with IDP - start 11 IDP each week (45 man rosters), and I have a contending team but I feel like I need a little more depth with another good WR. The scoring rules get very detailed for example PPR is .5 for RBs, 1 for WRs, and 1.5 for TEs, but here I like to keep it simple. Players that will start for me are: LUCK, ANDREW IND QB or WILSON, RUSSELL SEA QB ELLIOTT, EZEKIEL DAL RB GURLEY, TODD RAM RB EVANS, MIKE TBB WR ROBINSON, ALLEN JAC WR EIFERT, TYLER CIN TE or REED, JORDAN WAS TE I got a good kicker and good IDPs, so they are not an issue here. I do have some good depth at RB: Carlos Hyde, Danny Woodhead and Melvin Gordon from San Diego, Frank Gore, Tevin Coleman Atlanta, Alfred Morris Dal, and Paul Perkins NY Giants. I also have all of my 2017 rookie draft choices (probably late pick in each round). After doing some research I found two WRs that I like: BROWN, JOHN ARI WR or SHEPARD, STERLING NYG WR The other owner owns both WRs and is wide receiver heavy with only Mark Ingram as his only RB, but he could start four WRs and one RB in this league. What do you feel is a good trade offer for either player (and I don't mind over paying as long as it is reasonable to make that offer). Any suggestions - thanks in advance!
  8. I would run and accept that offer without any hesitation, that is not over paying for OBJ at all. Cobb proved last year that he is only a slot receiver who is not capable of being the WR 1 on any team. Jordy Nelson is already on the wrong side of 30 years old and had knee and hip surgeries in the last few years, so as a Packer fan, I don't put a ton of future value on Cobb. Cobb is a good WR, but he is system dependent on his fantasy value. With Alshon Jeffrey, some people love him, but in my opinion he is a good WR, but he is also some what limited and injury prone. I would not argue if someone disagreed with me, but I stated my opinion. I would run and immediately accept that offer.
  9. x2 - except I am not real fond of Henry - but I strongly agree with everything else - really like Shepard at 1.05 (is your league PPR?)
  10. I completely agree - people tend to forget that Jordy had hip surgery a year before his ACL injury plus being the wrong side of thirty makes packer fans wonder if Jordy starting to break down. I take that deal and enjoy the gain from that trade.
  11. Both offers are terrible, don't trade Zeke, and I also really like Seth Roberts, he might really blossom into a good WR
  12. x2 - Carr is no proven star & the 2016 draft after the first five picks is not very strong overall. Hurns is a nice piece, but he had only one good year, let's see if he can continue.
  13. I would accept that offer, other than Cooks you are not giving up much. Personally, I don't see a lot of fantasy football value in Charles, Ajayi, and number 8 overall rookie pick in this year's draft. If anything, you could flip ODB for a nice package of players and / or picks. New Orleans has too many players fighting for targets / touches, the Giants do not have as many players fighting for touches. How large is your league?
  14. Personally, I would reject all of owner #1 offers. Owner's #2 offers are interesting, and accepting his offer may come down to personal preference of what he is offering and how you build your team. Is your league standard scoring or PPR? Personally, I like Zeke and I think he adds more value to your team than adding a WR. I believe your RBs are a little weaker than your WRs, and in general your WRs are ok as is. Jordy is a good WR, but he just turned 31 years old and had two surgeries in the last few years (hip & knee), so I don't place of lot of value on Jordy in dynasty leagues. I may take the owner #2 first offer, if I felt the 2017 1st (early round) had an excellent chance to be a top three 2017 1st round pick, otherwise I would pass because after Zeke in 2016 and after the first several picks in 2017, all the premium RB draft prospects are gone. Just my two cents, hope this helps!
  15. x2, the second rounder might still make your offer a overpay, but throw in a mid to late draft pick just to sweeten your offer instead of asking straight up player for player
  16. As long as you are not a strong contender for the title, the Moncrief and 2 17 1sts side (Probably picks 4 and 8ish) side for me, especially if you have a good back up TE to start in place of Kelce . As Indy improves it's o line, their offense should get better.
  17. Dude, I am not attempting to attack you, I am just giving my opinion. How can I agree with you, when I posted before you? I am not high on Kevin White, he was an injured rookie who hasn't shown me that he is recovered from injury. Within the last year, Hurns was borderline waiver wire material, in 2015 he had a breakout year, so I don't put a lot of stock in his fantasy value. He may be good, but I don't see much worth while in the op offer to get the 1.01. Secondly, the op is either in a league that doesn't draft well, or he is making the draft choices he is offering look better. Most mocks have Shepard going at the sixth pick, and if you add three qbs, then Shepard and possibly Thomas is going as late as about the ninth or tenth picks. This draft is weak, so I have trouble seeing the ops draft picks last as long as he is estimating (remember, I play in a similar league and I have been preparing for my draft). Even if Thomas is available at 1.11, that doesn't make his offer look very enticing for the 1.01. I also have trouble believing that Lee will be available at 2.11 (I could be wrong). Anyways, play the game anyway you like, I just gave my opinion. There is no way I would even consider trading the 1.01 for that offer. You can tell when someone has the 1.01 or not by how they gave a trade value for the 2016 1.01.
  18. I got the 2016 1.01 in trade halfway through last year, and I play in a league that is similar to yours, some big exceptions are that we only start one QB and no taxi squads. There is no way I would even consider that offer. I wouldn't even reject it, I would just let it sit there and let it expire or get revoked. You are only offering pieces for a potential stud in a good situation.
  19. I own Eifert in all my PPR - TE Premium scoring leagues and I won't trade him unless I get that offer that you cannot refuse. Who is your back up TE? Is there some way you can get some RB help by draft or trading from a position on your roster with good depth?
