destroyed by injuries. need an rb

Postby Tder410 » Wed Nov 13, 2013 12:57 pm

So far this year I've lost Julio Jones, foster, Rodgers, and Sean Lee. And I've got spiller who's basically been injured all year. This is a keeper league and I've traded my first two picks next year too acquire a super team this year so I need to trade for a reliable rb to compensate for all my losses. I'm hoping to trade a WR to make this happen. My team is in the sig, any advice on who I should target with what I have?

Damn, that's some bad luck. You only have to start 1 RB. I'm not seeing why you think you need to trade for another one when your main one is AP. I'd hold.

well the problem is that the guy who I'm competing for first with has taken the same strategy as me and also has a ridiculous team. Basically unbeatable. Rb's in this league get one point for every two yards so they are extremely valuable and important. Without another solid rb I'm basically destined for second place. I don't feel confident in spiller getting healthy enough to help me out. I was considering going after Stacy. I think I could get him cheap enough for a WR and maybe a fourth round pick. Would that be worth it? I also have a waiver out to get Leonard but who knows how that mess in Tampa will turn out.

1 point for 2 yards of rushing? What is it for receiving? Seems extreme unless it's counterbalanced in other ways. Think you need to give me more information here. Giving me one stat doesn't describe the set up all that well unless you're saying everything else is standard.

You're gonna have to offer either Keenan or Cruz. Similar WRs for you but then you're starting Bennett or Amendola every week.

sorry guess I should have thought about that.
receivers get one point for every 5 yards
qb gets one point for every 15 yards
And it's the standard 6 points for touchdowns. It's a yardage based league instead of the standard scoring.

I own Cooper almost everywhere and trust him nowhere but at least he's a step above Bennett. It's gotta be those two WRs. They're what is going to get the ball rolling for you to get another RB.
