  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.

  14. Hey Bayhawks, I respectfully disagree (to a point). If there are pictures or documentation showing that Gordon is in good physical shape, that does show some discipline and desire to be a good football player. It might show a desire to change from past behavior. I do agree with you that being in good shape does not equal good football shape, but it does show some basic discipline and desire on Gordon part. I am not sure how most players can really be in football shape during the off season, everybody's body does need some time to rest and heal. Some pro football players eat their way out of the NFL, currently Eddie Lacy of Green Bay is over weight and he needs to slim down or he will not be an effective player in the NFL. Gordon may only be in good shape, but that is a lot better than being overweight or obviously out of shape. I also agree with you that when the OTAs and preseason starts that will tell us if Gordon is really ready to play.
  15.

  18. Maybe the sample size for Gurley isn't very big, but I'll be happy with any rookie that is recovering/have recovered from knee surgery and performing like Gurley is. Imagine the Rams with a passing game good enough for the other team's defense to respect it and not stack the box. I own him in one league and, I couldn't imagine wanting to trade him.
  19. I would have easily rejected those offers as well. Nothing excites me about any of them.x2
  20. If this is your worst dynasty offer, you should count your blessings. Actually the worst trade offer that I had received was back in either 2004/2005, when I picked up this orphan team, and I ran out of useable QBs that actually had the possibility of scoring in fantasy football because of injury. Someone offered me Rich Gannon for my first round pick. This trade was actually useless because Rich Gannon had just suffered a serious neck injury wasn't even playing while he was near the end of his career. I just mentioned the above offer because I just received it, and I couldn't believe someone actually took the time to make an offer like that.
  21. Just had received an offer of: give 1.01 and my 4.08 get 1.02 and his 4.02 Always wanted to deal out of the 1.01 for just moving up 6 picks in the fourth round in our dynasty rookie draft.
  22. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000492509/article/bryce-petty-david-cobb-among-impact-players-drafted-on-day-3 Need to scroll down near the bottom of the page to read about Jake Ryan.
  23. Dealt Hillman and a LB, when I was offered Davante Adams and Frank Gore. Didn't want to deal with the Denver RB headaches, and I have a ton of RB depth without Hillman. Maybe the other guy will get the best part of this deal, but Gore is helping me in the short run, and I am excited about Adam's future. If Adams develops like people think he might, he could be a handful. Hillman is just another piece in the Denver RB puzzle (that's their system). Hillman need the right situation to produce. Can't people realize that?
