  • Which trade should I take or should I stay put? Send Alf Morris & M. Bush for V. Cruz or Alf Morris for Torrey Smith?

    Roster WR are B.Marshall, James Jones, & Kender Wright
    RB Bradshaw/Dre Brown
    Jackie Battle, Ben Tate, Pierre Thomas, Kendall Hunter

  • Alright, so… I’d like to test owners’ resolve and try to get Julio Jones or Jordy Nelson or possibly Cruz. The offer I’ve been thinking of is Rashard Mendenhall and Danny Amendola for one of Jones or Nelson or maybe Cruz. I’d only make this offer because the owners of those players are kinda weak at RB. However, I’m wondering if I’m actually overpaying, because Amendola’s been getting it done (53 pts in 4 games in my league, most productive of all my WRs (though he was boosted by a 22 pt performance week 2) and just for reference Cruz has 56 points from off-on-off-on performances — in fact Amendola’s only bettered by 8 WRs so far and one of those is Brian Hartline who doesn’t really count).

    He’s THE guy in St. Louis and you’d think I could look forward to around 12 points a game from him plus any bonus days where he gets a TD or two, and I consider him my WR3, so I consider that very good value. I know it sounds crazy, but are Mendy and Amendola too much for a Jones/Nelson/Cruz? They’d be getting a guy who’ll quickly become the feature back in a functional offense and a WR who’s pulling in some very good numbers week to week…

    If not, do you think I should go ahead and table up some of these offers (even if they might seem a little audacious)? Thanks…

    • Alternatively, if my reservations about letting Danny Amendola go really stand in the way in the end, should I think about adjusting what I want out of a trade? For example, try to trade Mendy away for a WR2 or so, straight up? That way I keep Amendola and get another WR in to solve my week 9 bye conflict? Thanks.

    • I just don’t think you’ll find someone that values Amendola as high as you. I like him a lot as well, so I’d lean toward keeping him.

    • I think you’re probably right. People will see I’ve offered Amendola and they’ll think it’s a joke, but I think he’s probably better than his name might suggest. I think I’ll try to get a WR2 straight up for Mendy in that case. Thanks.

  • Hey Chet, I saw your flex rankings and you have Miles Austin over Michael Bush by a large number of slots. I only need seven points to win this week. Should that influence me to play Bush over Austin?
