I traded for him a week ago in a keeper (though he's not an option to be kept), sending Josh Kelley and Deebo.
That was before the hamstring issue, but I still think he's a solid buy if you can get him for a decent price.
He's got a good 2nd half schedule, and there's no reason to think he won't immediately jump back up to the top of the WR rankings once he's back on the field.

i agree should have been a target for buy low earlier but the owner of thomas has got to be frustrated as all hell about now,losing out to a team suspension followed by a hammy which could be multiple games injury

Yeah, that really should knock the price down even further, especially if it's a team teetering on the edge of playoff contention right now.

Traded Woods for MThomas. I can wait a couple weeks for MT if needed and Jefferson's helped my WR depth.

Hoping MT can have a nice 2md half but still sew risk here. Still, seems like a no-brainer, yes? The owner has 1 win and needs points this week and news about MT possibling being out next week too pushed it over the top

Dynasty Mess 1-6:

Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, Two Flexes

Rodgers, Burrow, Minshew
Chubb, Hunt, CEH, Bell, Kelley, Lindsay, Bernard, Edwards
Adams, Robinson, McLaurin, Kupp, Higgins, Aiyuk, Campbell, Pittman, Edwards, Smith (Saints)
Gesicki, Tonyan, MAC

Would you look at embracing the punt and building forward by trading
Adams, Chubb for
Barkley, AJ Brown, Cooper

?

I'm not really sure I see a lot of benefits of that but they're intriguing names on the returning side.

depending what the RBs are, but as a CMac owner, I passed on Davis, thinking CMac would come back quickly. In fairness, I had Conner, Miles, and picked up JRobinson the week before.

just took over a PPR w/ Flex dynasty team. Was offered Chark and a 2nd rounder for Golladay.

I've got Tyreek/Golladay/CeeDee/Hollywood/MVS (start 3 WRs and there's a Flex...RBs are not cutting it)

I wouldn't mind that second 2nd rounder next season. Worth it? Should I counter for McLaurin?

Working on a trade in my league. I'm currently 5-2 and in second place overall. It's a non-PPR league, standard yardage, 6 points per TD. We start 1QB, 2RB, 3WR/TE, 1FLX, 1DST, 1K. Here is my Roster:

QB: Herbert
RB: D. Cook, J. Conner, M. Gaskin, G. Bernard, J. Williams
WR: D. Adams, A. Robinson, K. Golladay, J. Jefferson, T. Boyd, D. Chark, M. Brown

I'm targeting an owner who is 2-5 and whose team has been wrecked by injury (Chubb, Mostert, Beckham, Cooper (lost Dak), Aaron Jones). He obviously needs to win NOW whereas I am thinking a bit ahead, which is risky I know. Anyway, here's the trade:

I GIVE: Gaskin, Jefferson
I GET: Chubb, Matt Ryan (need a backup QB anyway and he was going to drop him)

I'm obviously putting myself at risk if there are any injuries to my RB, and I'm banking on Chubb coming back strong in week 10 or 11 at the latest. But you've got to be bold to win! Thoughts?

I wouldn't trade your RBs. If anything, you've got more WRs than you need.

Find a team needing WRs with extra RBs and target them.

This is a roster analysis post, looking for strategy input. Have pulled 2 deals and feel quite good about my roster but have a constant improvement mindset. I think I might do more harm than good to pursue it. Stand pat and work the wire to get some depth? Find a splash move (eg try for rb1 with a ~sanders/ceh + wr package)? Standard scoring, start 2er, 2rb, 1 flex. Shallowish benches.

Qb ARog
RB Miles, CEH, Swift, JJackson
WR MThomas, DK, Golladay, JJefferson
TE Andrews (Goedert IR)
K/D whatever

Have 2 open roster spots, targeting Gus as further depth and may look to hold 2 Ds to stream if no other bench stash makes sense.

.5 ppr 12 team Re-draft 1 keeper tied to Round Drafted

lineup:
1qb 2 rb 3 wr, 1 te 1 k 1 dst

Roster:
Watson
Cook, Hunt, Mostert, B.Scott, C.Edmonds
Davante, A.Robinson, R.Anderson, T.Higgins, Ruggs, T.Smith
J.Cook/T.Burton
Ravens
Blankenship

I was offered Calvin Ridley for T.Higgins and R.Anderson. I feel like I should be taking this deal and running, but he is normally not an owner who makes deals. I feel like I am missing something.

What say you Sharks?

right now it seems ok...but i think Higgins will only get better. I'd stay put but i could see why you'd want to do it.

I like Higgins, but getting Ridley would be very nice and I lean toward taking the deal. Starting Davante and Ridley gives you a powerful WR combo. With this being a 2-for-1 trade, who could you pick up to fill the extra roster slot? That has to be considered as well - some more depth at WR would clearly be welcome.

I will always take a dime over two nickels. Take Ridley and run.
