    Trade help, WHIR

    I wouldn't make the trade for the same reasons. Vereen is going to have a lot more opportunities now that the Patriots have gotten back on track and Ridley being injured. I can see wanting to beef up your WRs a little but Calvin might not be back for a few weeks and you do have Gordon available from week 12 on, so I'm not sure it's worth trading a starting RB when their risk of injury is so high.
  2. They say RGIII will get his starting job back when he's healthy, and right now that could be after their week 9 bye. Jackson is really hit or miss, but I think Cousins is helping Jackson get the points he's been getting with deep throws. I'm not sure that continues after Griffin comes back. http://www.fftodayforums.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=439173

    Is this a good trade? WHIR

    I wouldn't. Personally, I don't look to help other people, so if he needs RBs that's his problem. Only do it if the trade helps you. I'd be extra cautious if this is someone you're going to play in the future or think you might see in the playoffs. I don't think this trade helps you at all. In standard scoring Thomas and Cobb are exactly even with 73 points. So that really means you're trading to get Olsen. Granted, Olsen has been surprisingly great this year, but you just never know with TEs, and Reed did just have a 92 yard game so maybe he's back. I think RBs, especially starting RBs are worth their weight in gold because you never know what's going to happen, whether they get injured, lose their starting job, have a terrible matchup, whatever. I do like Ellington a lot more in a PPR but at least he seems to have a total lock on that position unlike Oliver who you don't know what's going to happen. I'd probably counter and say Cobb, Oliver and Reed for Thomas and Olsen. That way he'll have the starting Chargers RB whether it ends up being Oliver or Mathews. If he needs RBs so bad, he can offer more for a 2nd one. Aside from your TE being maybe not that great, you don't have any pressing needs. http://www.fftodayforums.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=439173

    A few questions, WHIR

    Flacco vs Atl or Romo vs NYG? I'm thinking Flacco because of Atlanta's defense. I don't think Romo is a bad play, but thinking Flacco might do a bit more. Seattle D/ST @ StL or Houston D/ST @ Pit? Picked up Houston this week because they've been the #4 scoring D/ST but not sure if I'm ready to give up on Seattle yet. Hoping they bounce back vs StL. Blair Walsh (Min kicker) @ Buffalo or Matt Prater (Det kicker) vs NO? Prater is still available in my league and even though he only went 1 for 3 in his return, I'm tempted to pick him up since Detroit's offense is better than Minnesota's. On the other hand, I picked Walsh specifically because Minnesota kind of sucks and he kicks 50 yard bombs. He had two bad games against tough defenses, but he's going up against Buffalo, TB and Washington before his bye week, so I'm tempted to ride it out and drop him then. Thanks, will help in return

    M. Ball

    I have Ball in my league and thankfully we have an IR spot I can stash him and then decide once he comes back. This is a pretty good article with a reasonable explanation for why Hillman managed to get 100 yards, that he's better suited for taking a handoff from a standstill when Peyton is in the shotgun than Ball is. So maybe Ball just isn't a good fit for the offense because he needs a full head of steam. Maybe they'll realize that when he comes back and tweak the game plan. Can't really say. I don't know that I'd give up McKinnon or Oliver for him, and Harvin was just traded to the Jets so I don't know if that makes his chances to catch passes better or worse... http://predominantlyorange.com/2014/10/13/will-montee-ball-lose-starting-rb-spot/

    please help

    I would. It looks like Johnson is losing out to Ivory in touches, and the QB situation for the Jets is going downhill. If Sankey does well today that could open up more opportunities for him in the future. Thanks for mine.

    Start 3...ppr- will answer yours

    I'd say the same thing, Dez, Oliver, and Fred Jackson. http://www.fftodayforums.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=438811

    6 pt passing td info requested

    I fall into this trap myself, but what you have to remember is that it's not about point totals. The 12th QB who gets taken in the 8th round could possibly generate more points than the #1 RB taken first. What matters in the draft is points relative to the guy you can get later. Adding points to TDs and completions makes the elite QBs more valuable because it widens the lead they already had on other QBs, but when you get to the middle of the pack and there's little difference between one or another, you get a better marginal return by taking the other positions and being the last guy to take a QB.

    6 pt passing td info requested

    Last year in our draft Rodgers, Brees 2nd round Manning, Brady 3rd round Stafford, Newton 4th round Ryan, Griffin III, 5th round Romo, 6th round Flacco, Luck, Wilson, Kaepernick, 8th round Talking to another guy in the league, we kind of expect Manning will go mid first round after the top 5-6 RBs and Rodgers and Brees in the second round this year, after that who knows.
  11. I've been checking out a bunch of different sites and their opinion of QBs is all over the place. Peyton Manning for instance, I've seen him as high as 8 and as low as 41. I understand the theory that QBs aren't as valuable in a PPR compared to standard. My league has 6pt TDs so they should be a little more valuable than regular PPR but I'm not sure how much. I don't want to turn this into another "I'm drafting in X position" thread, but I am wondering how early people think Manning/Rodgers/Brees are worth going after. Thanks. Link your thread and I'll reply.

    Forte as # 1 overall pick: crazy?

    I can definitely see passing over Peterson in a PPR league. I would pick Charles over Forte but it's close. I don't think it's a bad decision to take Forte.
  13. Perhaps I'm not explaining myself well. Right now when you look at ESPN's PPR draft cheat sheet, it suggests drafting Peyton Manning 9th. Even though he's projected to score way more points than any running back, it makes sense to take the top RBs first because one of them will give more value over the average RB than Manning will over the average QB (or something). What I'm trying to do is figure out what that "or something" is. I'm drafting 11th and if I went by ESPN alone, they'd say take Doug Martin. They list Aaron Rodgers 13th. In my league, TDs are worth an extra 2 points, so someone who throws a lot of TDs is even more valuable than in normal PPR. Using the different scoring, I can redo the list for QBs, I can redo the list for RBs and it'll reorder them slightly. What I don't know how to do is put the lists back together. That's the question I'm asking, when ESPN (or whoever) does a cheat sheet and tells you to take Manning 9th even though he's probably going to score 100 more points than Peterson, what did they do to figure that out? I'm not looking for an exact answer, but some ideas (compare to average of top 12 QBs? compare to average QB? compare to 13th QB?) would be helpful. Thanks
  14. I'm in a 12 team PPR league which is a little different from standard PPR leagues because everyone gets 6 points for a TD. There's also bonuses for 300yd or 400yd passing games, and 100 and 200 rush/receiving games. I'm looking at the ESPN cheat sheets and I know they're doing some kind of calculation where they're ranking the players compared to how steep the drop off is, but I'm not sure what it is they're doing (Like for QBs, are they comparing to the next player? the average of the top 12? the average QB? the 13th QB?) I can change ESPN's scoring projections to the scoring system used in my league, which changes the rankings for a position, I'm just not sure how to combine the new lists into an overall order. And drafting 11th, I'd like to come up with a better plan than draft Doug Martin and hope he doesn't suck this year. Can anybody help me out? Thanks

    Lineup help, will help with yours

    Thanks for mine. Probably Kaepernick. Carolina has put up great numbers against QBs this year, but they haven't played any teams with great QBs since game 1 (aside from clearly struggling Matt Ryan). And his running ability gives him a high floor. I don't know, they say Spiller's ankle is healthy, but Christopher Harris at ESPN is saying he's rewatching the tape and seeing him limping off the field after each long run. You just told me to play Nelson but I'd probably go with Allen and Spiller here. I am going to play Nelson, but I still view him as a question mark until Wallace shows he's capable.
