I focused on RBs early in my draft (1st three picks: Barkley, Gordon, Mixon), drafted Michel late (12th round) and added Conner and Lindsay during the season. So I am pretty strong at RB as a result. I’ve been trying to trade a RB most of the season but trades are almost impossible in my league. One guy wanted Michel for his TY Hilton. Another guy (I am beating 188 to 145 this week) wanted Lindsay for his Baldwin, now wants Mixon for his Matt Ryan (I start Goff, could replace with Luck if I wanted). I even approached the Bell owner, offered Conner (or his choice of Conner or Mixon) for his Keenan Allen or Mike Evans, he said he was OK adding Chris Carson off waivers.
None of the owners seem to pay attention to trade value charts, all seem to simply want to “win trades”.
Since I focused on RBs my WRs aren’t as strong… JuJu as an almost WR1 and then WR2s and WR3s (Cooks, Sanders, Jones Jr). I’d like to avoid the “which WR2 to start?” since I usually choose wrong (eg, last night started Cooks and Sanders went off). I’d package a RB1 and WR2 to get a WR1.
Am I being unrealistic (Ryan owners says I am being unrealistic and “bogarting” all the RBs)? Any other approaches, or WRs targets that I should be targeting?
btw: WRs are Smith-Shuster, Cooks, Sanders, and Jones Jr. WR1s I would be interested in would be Evans, Allen, Adams, Thielen, Diggs, Tyreek Hil (though guessing Thielen and Hill recent games will make them impossible to get).
