What did you get for slaton? (1 Viewer)

i took slaton with my last draft pick and the offers started rolling in monday. luckily a guy struggling at rb offered me gates.....i had to jump on it. i would imagine there are similar offers out there, let hear them.

 
Jason Campbell, Steve Slaton, Pierre Thomas, Kevin Curtis

for

Tony Romo, Matt Cassel, Devery Henderson

 
Haven't gotten any offers for him yet and won't be overly shopping him either. Got him as a throw in on a trade after week 1 and now it's looking like he'll be replace my RB2.

 
i already had gore, turner and bush. as much as i liked slaton he wouldnt have palyed on my team

 
got welker in a dynasty league for him after week 1 - already have a slew of RBs and had zero WRs.

 
I was curious on gameday to see how he would do - I am pleasantly surprised he did that well and he is getting some attention from other owners. I would love to hear what he is going for, so keep the reports coming.

Personally I have a decent RB depth, so I may try and move him. Thinking of pairing him up with Warner for a top Qb to a team that is struggling with RBs. Maybe to the FWP owner, too.

 
I am extremely glad to have him. I was short on RB depth and hoping someone would emerge. He looked good Sunday. I wonder about his durability though. I have contemplated offering to the guy in my league with worse RB depth than me for Witten, but I think I'd have to add someone else.

My other thought was to package him with Delhomme and offer him to the same owner for either Santana Moss (whom I don't really like) or Jennings (whom I'm sure he wouldn't give up.)

 
The only offer received so far was A.Bryant for Slaton on Monday

May try working out some sort of package with him and Addai to the ADP owner, to secure my future as LT2 begins to decline the next few years..

:lmao:
 
12 team league, TD-heavy (i.e., 1 point per 20 rush/receiving yds or 50 passing yards, 6 points for all TDs).

Traded Eli Manning, Slaton and Baltimore D

for

Peyton Manning, Dwayne Bowe and Buffalo D.

 
Thinking about offering Slaton/Bryant Johnson for Steve Smith (Car). No official offer yet but initial inquiries have the Steve Smith owner mulling it over.

 
I put out an offer just to test the waters:

Warner, Cassel, Slaton, Colston

for

P. Manning, Felix Jones, Calvin Johnson

Mixed feelings on it, but I wanted to get the ball rolling. If he buys into Slaton I could see him accepting. But I am unsure whether I want to let Colston go for playoff time. Just an initial offer, so we'll see.

ETA: Just realized another guy is sitting CHad Ocho and has zero RBs, seems like a fair trade, offered it up.

Mixed feelings? :goodposting: If you eliminated the QBs from both sides, maybe he would go for it.

 
Before the season started I offered Slaton for Roddy White in a partial keeper non-ppr. It was accepted. At the time it was a good deal. Right now, too tough to tell.

<--- WVU homer who got Slaton is just about every league

 
I think whats more important than trading for/away Slaton is keeping Slaton and trading you drafted RB2. Depending on who you have as a RB2, its a fairly risky play to try to depend on Slaton each week, but you might be able to greatly improve your QB1 or WR2 trading away your current RB2.

Sorry to hijack -You're saying it was a terrible offer? He doesn't have any RBs..I think Lendale, Felix and Deangelo are his starters. It's a starting point, I might be inclided to include Thomas Jones rather than Slaton. To be honest, I don't really need to make any deals (3-0, total points leader - not bragging just providing information), just trying to minimally improve at this point. His WR depth isn't bad either, so who knows.

I have ADP and SJAX as a RB1 and RB2 in a keeper league, should I move SJAX and keep Slaton as my RB2 ?I might wait a week or two to really gage Slaton value.

It was a terrible offer. You consider a terrible offer to be a starting point, I consider it to be extremely annoying.

So stating that you are 3-0 and total points leader is relevant how?

Who the f- cares?

Excited about being 3-0 aren't we?

For some reason I was assuming this was a dynasty league. My bad. If it's redraft, it's not nearly as one-sided. In a dynasty it would take a lot more than that to get Peyton and Calvin.
 
late last week i was offered holt for slaton, got a 4th tossed in and took it. not sure i am happy about it but with Portis, Gore, Perry, Mendenhall already rostered I didnt expect him to see the starting lineup. With TO, R White, VJax (SD) and Mark Clayton help at WR was needed. I think if i had waited until this week i could have landed a better wr like Housh....

not sure trading your RB2 in a keeper league is prudent. advice was more for redrafts

First, there is at least one person here who cares about me being 3-0 (hint, he is posting). Second, I stunk last year, so yeah, I am a bit excited about being 3-0 this year.

Third, I forgot posting on a fantasy football forum was serious business, I apologize for spoiling your day.

 
Before the start of the season, I got

a 2nd and two developmental IDpers for Slaton and a 5th

Will likely hold him as my RB2 (Lewis) looks shaky at best and my RB4 (R. Rice) looks dead in the water.

 
I just traded him and Matt Jones for Maroney and DeSean Jackson....

PPR so Witten is golden.

ppr dynasty league -- traded slaton and anthony gonzalez for randy moss
:unsure: Seriously?
I know people who would love both sides of that deal. Was hardly worth an icon blast.
is that true? i ask out of ignorance mainly. i just traded chris chambers for randy moss in a PPR league and i am having buyer's remorse, so i am hoping you are right.

He is golden in most any format.

Geez, dude. Did someone #### in your Cheerios this morning?
 
Just traded Slaton and Griese for Andre Johnson and Mendenhall (other team only had Roethlisberger at QB).

Yeah, I don't really see what is the rush to send him off is. He did just have a really good game against one of the best rush defenses in the league and one that was only giving up 2.7 yards a carry going into the game.
 
MY RB's MB III, Turner, Slaton, DeAngelo Williams

QB's, TJO and Cambell

was offered (QB)Rodgers for Cambel and Slaton

or

(TE) Gates or (TE) Fasano (we get 3 points per rec. for TE, my other TE is Whitten) for Slaton

have not decided if I want to ok either trade.

Might do the first trade if they throw in RB Taylor or Jacobs

Dynasty league

I traded the rights to Slaton and late 3rd next year for Jacob Hester and what looks like early 1st next year(top 5).

Even with only LT at RB and Green as my backup, I thought Slaton would never be a go to guy and while 1 good game, lets wait and see,

I am pretty happy with the deal as 2 QB league and with Crabtree, Stafford and Tebow going early, I should be in line for a really good RB.

 
Guy was willing to trade me Ocho Cinco for my Slaton but I declined...with a little persuasion from Jeff T.
foolish. Slaton is a flash in the pan. Chad Johnson is a stud on a bad team.
Yeah, I thought of this as well. My WRs are Fitz, Marshall, and Colston. Do I really need Ocho for the interim? Or should I keep the depth at RB? It really is the question a lot of teams face. I could have a great starting lineup or have very good depth.
