Your RB's may be great next year but don't provide much upside this year. Hernandez vs Wayne in the flex spot. You should probably look for an opportunity to use a TE for trade bait on a stud RB or QB who starts slow.
Yea I definitely like the thought of trading one to upgrade at RB. I admit, my RB core really sucks, but thats what I get for the 7th slot in my league which drools over RB's. I understand the importance of grabbing them early this year, but Megatron is just my favorite. Had to take him. I got Gronk at 18 and actually got Trent at 31, followed by Jordy at 42. Know it probably wasn't smart to go reciever at my 4th, but it was him or Beanie and well...you get the rest. I know it might be a year early, but I really like Brown, and not sure how it'll pan out having Luck and Wayne too, but I'll at least have somewhat of a lockdown on that offense. And as far as Hernandez, I could of maybe grabbed a RB there too, but it was him or Kevin Smith...just wanted to make sure I grabbed whichever TE Tom likes this year, hope it pans out.
That's where the problem lies. No one's going to trade a true value RB 1 or 2 for hernandez. Even a viable flex would not go for hernandez just because he doesn't score as many points as a viable flex. I personally also don't think Gronk would get you a top 12 RB, maybe not even top 15. Then your team would be really bad after that trade. I really don't think it's your top 4 picks that did you in, it's the 5-10 picks. This has been posted in another thread about starting 2 TE, if you are starting a TE in your flex spot, something really wrong happened in your draft and you should check to see if you still have your wallet. I'm not sure in your team who you picked in rd 5-7.
Thanks for the positive re-enforcement. How about you try drafting 7th in a league like mine and see how it goes. And it's not that I'd start a TE at my flex for sure, I still have Wayne or Pierre Thomas, I was just asking if it would be viable or not to start one there if I had both like I do in my situation.
-Oh and after winning 700 last year I think my wallets fine.
1.) Wrong Forum, although sneakily posted
2.) No one cares how much you won, unless you're going to share
3.) Accept criticism since you asked for it. Sometimes it's right, sometimes it's wrong. I'd deal Gronkowski myself and there will be someone who wants him for a nice price.
Sorry wasn't trying to be rude or troll at all, know i shouldnt of over reacted. Thanks for the idea of trading Gronk, I definitely think that's my best option at this point. And about drafting RB's at my pick, I definitely didn't want to roll with Trent and Brown as my 1 and 2, but when at my 2nd at 18 I had to choose between Gronk or a RB like Turner or Gore? Trent was the only workhorse back left at my 3rd and yea I took Jordy at 42 because I like him more than Benjarvus and Ridley, the top backs at that pick.
I don't really see how I "put all my eggs in one basket" though since I have 2 TE from the same team, in my defense, The Pat's are the only team I'd ever even conceive drafting both TE's. And even then it's just two players. It's not like I went Tom, Gronk, welker, Hernandez and Lloyd.
Appreciate the insight, sorry again, wasn't trying to start trouble or boast about a previous year.
