One of the teams in my keeper league is out of it and looking to trade players for picks or keepers.

Would you do this?

I send:

Jordan Howard (could be kept in the 4th round next year)
Derek Carr
Mike Evans
4th round pick

I get:

Russel Wilson
Doug Baldwin
Todd Gurley
late round pick

none of them are keeper potential all early picks
I'd do that deal  
YAJ2112 : 11/7/2017 9:28 am : link
definitely an upgrade for this year.
who would be your keeper?

?
I would keep  
pjcas18 : 11/7/2017 9:37 am : link
Michael Thomas (6th round, I kept him in the 12th round this year and the round halves each year) and maybe DeShaun Watson in the 8th. Maybe even Evan Engram in the 14th.

We can only keep 2.
Speaking of keepers....

Odell Beckham is currently on waivers. I project to pick 9th or 10th out of 12 at worst if things hold up like they are.

Should I pick him up to keep him, it would cost my 1st round pick, but who am I going to draft at 9 - 12 that would be better than a healthy Odell?

downside is I'd have to throw back one of the other guys (Watson or Engram), but could always re-draft them.

Agree, and you have to keep Gurley.

Watson might not be around. If it's a snake draft, you would have a shot at him at the top of the 2nd. But I think Watson's value could be as high as a low 1st rounder in the draft next year, somewhere between 7-10, seriously. I suspect he will be drafted before all WR's except Antonio Brown, and possibly including Antonio Brown.

I have a 2-keeper, 12 team league in which I have Ezekiel Elliott and acquired David Johnson, and I had picked up Watson. My plan is to keep both Elliott and DJ, and Watson will very much be in my plans to draft in the first round, although Antonio Brown has reached his keeper limit and therefore he has to be a consideration. If I have the draft positioning, it will be one of those two if possible.

But back to OBJ, it's such a horrific injury he suffered, and I'm concerned. I'd actually keep Watson if I were you. He has a better chance at coming back full strength and he was a weekly advantage at QB, moreso than even OBJ over other #1 receivers on most teams this year. Then you keep your 1st rounder, and you'll get a great player with it, no doubt, that will probably in the neighborhood of how good OBJ is, even if it's not quite as fun as having OBJ on your fantasy team. That's what I would do.

Any chance they bounce back this week vs the 49'ers with Jenkins returning? My alternatives aren't all that great.

I like them more if Garoppolo doesn't play but I like them either way. I like their chances to contain Gore and without Garcon, SF doesn't have many good receivers.

Giants D should dominate and if they get either of Goodson or Vernon back could be like last year.

I can state with absolute 100% certainty that Gore will get ZERO points against the Giants defense this weekend.

Agreed, don't see him getting any carries over Roger Craig this week
Gore

I know that's what Keith is rooting for
Should i hang onto Tucker  
Mr. Nickels : 11/8/2017 3:14 pm : link
through his bye week or is he not elite enough? He has been good since week 5. Succop is available who I will be adding anyway but is it worth cutting Tucker and sticking with Succop?

I don't think the Ravens O is good enough to warrant keeping Tucker. I've been cutting him every where I have him unless I have a completely wasted spot. Succop is having a great year anyway, would rather have him the rest of the season starting in week 11 over Tucker.
He has been good though  
Mr. Nickels : 11/8/2017 3:51 pm : link
the Defense creates field position and they are just good enough to get him in range for those 50 yarders

Who would you drop? I'm rolling with Succup in one league, he's been solid, and had his bye already.

I would not drop a player with any value for something as random as a kicker. In fact I hate having kickers in FFL at all, they're just more random and luck-based than all the other positions. unless of course my kicker kicks 6 FG's then they're awesome.
I made a trade offer this morning that's been accepted  
Milton : 11/8/2017 5:33 pm : link
I traded Brees, CJ Anderson, and Amendola for Marvin Jones and Jerick McKinnon.

My other QBs are Wentz and Goff.
My other RBs are Howard, Collins, and Forte
My other WRs are Hill, Jeffrey, Funchess, and Woods

Too late to turn back now, but did I do well? He needed a QB to start this weekend with Winston out so I jumped on it.
