Dropped Brady in a keeper league (1 Viewer)

So I dropped Brady in my keeper league last week to free up a roster spot. We have 4 keepers and 6 free roster spots. I had a few guys on bye week and Coles and Houshmanzadeh were showing up as questionable/doubtful at mid week. In my league its a bid system for free agents. You get 2 days a week to have your bids submitted, and I needed a WR to make sure I could fill out my whole team for Sunday. I traded Fitzgerald straight up for Tom Brady last August. And he helped me finish 2nd with a pretty crappy fantasy squad. My team is much stronger than last year. Brady is not guaranteed to ever be the same player. Daunte Culpepper blew out his knee and is now retired! My buddy started a poll asking the league if i was a moron or made a move that was necessary. What do you think of the roster move. Jer if you read this, kiss my buttocks!

I wouldn't be mad about dropping him, but rather for giving up Fitz instead. That being said, if you weren't keeping him, it's fine to drop, seeing as his surgery was major, he has had infections, and is likely going to take a lot of time to recover.

Mistake. Next question?
 
I'd say we need more analysis about your thinking process.When did the symptoms start?
haha. i held on to him until the news started popping up about how he might need surgery again. I admit, I wanted to drop him and pick him back up. I was hoping I could grab him again. But then I realized I am a Giants fan and I hate New England. There are 14 teams in my league and only one person noticed. Cuz he got picked up for the minimum bid of one dollar!

Why don't you drop your whole team and replace them with nothing but G-Men?Seems like you could have done better with Brady, perhaps in a trade.
 
I dropped Brady in my keeper immediately after week 1 when I found out he was done for the season. To me, an extra roster spot all year was more valuable than keeping Brady - and who can know how the surgery and the year off will affect his moility and his over-all game especially in his 1st year back (think McNabb). so I let someone else waste a roster spot.

Having said that, if I had kept him rostered through week 8, I probably would have kept him rostered the rest of the year

I tried trading him the first 8 weeks and no one was interested. Sounds like somoene is a new england fan..I am not that big of a homer to try and draft my NFL team's players..I have Giants D in one league, and i picked up Carney yesterday in another..Thats about it.

You are in a keep four in a fourteen team league and you dropped a guy who has the all-time NFL passing TD record that he registered only last year so you could free up a roster spot? That seems like a big mistake to me. :thumbup:

If this was a dynasty league, I'd agree, as there is no way to replace him next year. But in a keep 4, there will be solid QBs available to draft. Probably only 8-10 QBs will be kept, at most. That will leave enough decent QBs for a QB1. It adds a bit of risk to the process, but Brady is already a big risk for next year anyways. I went through this same thought process when I cut Palmer in a Keep 4 12 teamer. Cutting Brady would be a bit tougher, but I wouldn't hesitate if it helped me win this year
 
BTW, for the original poster, How many QBs were kept last year?
about 10..I picked up Orton and I just have a feeling he will be successful. I have so many solid players on my team i will have a tough time deciding who to keep next year.
