  • You ain't the boss of the freakin' bedclothes.
My office league I have been offered Gronkowski and I would trade Alfred Morris and possibly Heath Miller.  My starting TE is Jason Witten.  Morris is my flex player.  I would move either Doug Martin or Denarius Moore to replace Morris in the starting lineup.  I can only start 1 TE, so is Gronk a big enough increase on Witten to make up for the loss from Morris to Moore or Martin.  I'm leaning towards no, but was curious as to others thoughts.

Anytime you can get out of Lucifer's pocket, do it.

I've got a trade on the table I'm inclined to refuse, but don't know if its the right move. PPR keeper league, with the keeper costs attached for next season.

I trade: Victor Cruz (7th rd keeper), Matt Forte (1st rd keeper)
He trade: Ray Rice (1st rd keeper) DHB (5th rd keeper)

hell no I cant trust ray rice much only because they are knocking down his snaps. Don't get me wrong he do what he has to do with his snaps but you can tell they are limiting him and it is very annoying. Cruz is doing his thing right now and DHB (raiders WR?) is meant for the wavier wire lol

Also his remaining WRs are Dez Bryant, Malcomb Floyd, and Kerley.

I'm thinking about a counter with Floyd in place of DHB, but even then, I don't know if its worth it. I'd have to eat both bye weeks for the RBs, and my RB SITUATION is Reggie Bush, Forte, Mike Bush, Quizz Rodgers, and Javid Best.

I'm the current points leader, I'm not sure it's a great move even with Floyd.

That's my inclination too, and with Nicks in and out, plus the probability tht the Giants aren't going to have the lead to sit their starters during the playoffs..yeah, declining.

Yeah, don't do it.  I don't think the gap between Rice and Forte makes up for the gap in wide receivers.  Plus, Cruz is a significantly more valuable keeper.

I'd actually do that trade depending on what my other WR's looked like (i.e. can you take the hit on Cruz and still be ok).  Ray Rice is a big upgrade over the injury prone Forte and the rest of your RB's have various question marks i.e. Reggie injury prone, and the other three all backups or injury prone.  You could really use a RB that is basically good for 90% of the snaps every single week, something none of your backs are good for.  And yeah the Ravens are throwing more this year, but Rice is getting a lot of those (only Sproles has more receptions as a RB) and is still getting a bunch of handoffs.  In a PPR league Rice is money with 23 catches for 190 yards and he still is getting solid rushing yards and TD's.  Much safer and better option than Forte.

I didn't do it, I did tell him that I would keep Witten and Martin open for Gronk if he changed his mind, but he couldn't do that.

I must say that imma beast of a trader lol I tradded for arian foster lol...the guy reallly had nothing just arian foster and a QB so i traded him

AP, Malcolm Flyod, and Mikel Lieshore for Foster and Hernandez

FYI this was about 2 weeks ago when Hernandez was hurt and everyone I had was performing well...but with that being said he was able to start everyone I traded. And im number 1 in 8/10 leagues.

I'm 8-2 and tied for top spot. Division rival (also 8-2) has Cutler and Big Ben. He wants Luck, I also have Matt Ryan. He's asking for Luck. Offered Cruz (I have Nelson, Harvin, D. Moore, White and James Jones). He has Jimmy Graham. I have Owen Daniels. Is it a good idea to ask for Jimmy Graham for Luck? Or stay put.

Def don't stay put.  If you can trade a bench player for someone you would start you do it.
do it

Would you move Luck and another piece to get Cruz and Jimmy Graham?

Luck + Daniels for Graham + Cruz seems pretty fair.
