Trying to Buy Low...

Postby Luke » Thu Sep 24, 2009 6:46 am

Though I know I should wait until after Week 2 to shake things up, I can't help myself sometimes. I put out feelers to the owners of Slaton and Forte to see if I could snatch either one from them. They both need WR help and I happen to have a good trio of WRs... not very good depth behind them but I figure I could the waiver wire throughout the season for that. So, my question to you all is who would feel comfortable offering up out of these three:

R. Wayne
D. Bowe
T.J. Housh

I figure I could try lower for Slaton than I could for Forte. If it matters, this is a 14-team league and it's Non-PPR.

Thanks!

Housh, Bowe, Wayne in that order. I would try my hardest to hold onto Wayne.

It would very nice if the owners would take just Housh for either Slaton or Forte but I assume I'll have to send Bowe to one of the owners. I'll probably hold tight if they ask for Wayne (would it be worth getting Forte for Wayne though?)

Well, no trades went down last week. I have the Forte owner knocking back on my door though... basically, when all is said and done, I think he wants Wayne for Forte. Not sure how I feel about this. Thoughts on their values?

Right now they are about equal. Post your team.

Drop Housh or Bowe. But best thing to do is hope one of them has a great week then try to sell em. Seattle's going against a depleted Indy D so you've got a good chance that backup will keep looking his way and get that TD.

Here's my team. Keep in mind, it's a 14-man league. Even so, my team isn't looking too hot right now. Some change will be needed to make a playoff push. I'm grateful to be 2-2 coming out of this week. But, yeah, this guy is willing to deal either Forte, Pierre Thomas, Cadillac or Donald Brown for WR help. Bowe's value is probably shot now unfortunately...

Schaub, Matt QB
Cassel, Matt QB

Hightower, Tim RB
Tomlinson, LaDainian RB
Bradshaw, Ahmad RB
Charles, Jamaal RB
White, LenDale RB

Bowe, Dwayne WR
Houshmandzadeh, T.J. WR
Wayne, Reggie WR
Henderson, Devery WR
Maclin, Jeremy WR
Morgan, Josh WR
Stuckey, Chansi WR

Lewis, Marcedes TE
Scheffler, Tony TE

Carney, John K

And, as an update, I wrote to the guy saying that I would consider trading Wayne for Forte straight up and he responded by saying he'd do that deal. Thumbs up or thumbs down, after seeing my roster? I could probably trade off Hightower or Bradshaw for a WR since I wouldn't need both after this deal.
