In my 12-team .5PPR Superflex League (with 4 pts per TD pass), our trade deadline is this weekend and our playoff starts in Week 13.
- 6 teams with Seeds #1-4 going to best records and Seeds #5-6 going to two teams (out of the remaining eight teams) with the highest regular season total points regardless of their records.
- Seeds #1 and 2 have bye Week 13
- Week 13 - Quarterfinals, Week 14 - Semifinals, Weeks 15-16 Championship
With that in mind, I am currently ranked #1 with a 9-1 record and have 100 points more than the #2 and 3 teams with records of 8-2, so no matter what happens in Week 12 (unless I bench all of my players), I will have a bye in Week 13. And that brings me to my dilemma. As my first playoff game will be in Week 14, I have sort of a RB issue.
I originally had J.Taylor and A.Jones (both with Week 14 byes); however, I traded away J.Taylor along with L.Fournette to another manager for E.Elliott and T.Pollard. So I have two RBs that play in Week 14. However, while last night was a total win for me with those two, relying on two RBs from the same team isn't always a recipe for success. With that being said, the Cowboys do play the Texans in Week 14.
My dilemma is, do I still try to trade away A.Jones for another RB without a Week 14 bye? Or do I just hold tight and rely on the Cowboys tandem for Week 14 and keep A.Jones for the championship weeks? I also have the option of bundling A.Jones and J.Jefferson for a RB/WR combo trade, especially with J.Jefferson and his minor turf-toe injury, I may be willing to part with him. We have until end of tonight's game to execute a trade.
This is my current roster:
RB: A.Jones, T.Pollard
WR: S.Diggs, J.Jefferson
Bench: M.Ryan, AJ.Dillon, D.Harris, N.Hines, J.Watson, K.Pitts
