Screwed up my draft, need to make a trade for week 1?

Postby microwave donut » Tue Aug 26, 2014 10:33 pm

In our auction (12team, 0.5PPR) we only make managers fill their starting lineup. If you choose to spend all your cash, you can fill remaining bench slots off FAAB waivers, but no FA/waiver moves are allowed until after week 1 (trades are ok before this however).

I screwed myself in that my only flex options for week 1 are Ray Rice, Sankey and McFadden. I don't see those first two as playable.

Should I explore trading Sankey or Ray Rice for a low end RB and WR to get someone to play or just roll w McFadden? Moves I'm looking at are Lamar Miller + Brandin Cooks for Rice or DeAngelo Williams + Kendall Wright for Sankey.

I would trade Rice for the Miller deal. And I would also trade Sankey for Wright in a heartbeat.

I decided to hang onto Sankey rather than Rice.

Did Rice for DeAngelo + Kendall Wright

Best. Trade. Ever.

My leaguemate who I made the trade with previously petitioned at the draft to have Ray Rice banned because of the abuse charges, which was rejected by league vote. He also solicited donations to a charity for battered women (I donated when I acquired Rice in the draft, others did as well). When he traded for him people went berserk. It was all trolling --nobody was really going to take back their money-- but oh man he bit hard! Like 10 paragraph posts to explain himself.

Then Rice gets suspended forever. ROFL!
