Here is the story of how this off-season, I decided to go for it.
The league is a 10 team PPR, 2 QB, 3 WR, 2 Flex dynasty league.
My team finished 3-10 and I received the 1.02 pick in the rookie draft.
I didn’t feel like I had a 3-10 roster, as I lost 6 games by less than 10 points.
I was getting offers for 1.02, and I was considering taking Fournette there.
Here was my roster pre-draft
- QB: Tom Brady, Carson Palmer, Tony Romo, Colin Kaepernick, Tom Savage
- RB: Lamar Miller, Jordan Howard, CJ Anderson, James White, Dion Lewis
- WR: Allen Robinson, Demaryius Thomas, Rishard Matthews, Tyler Boyd, Malcom Mitchell, Adam Humprhies, Marvin Jones, Phillip Dorsett, Brandom Coleman
- TE: Eric Ebron, Antonio Gates
It all started when I traded the 1.02
- SENT: 1.02, Demaryius Thomas, 2018 3rd
- RECEIVED: Melvin Gordon, Jarvis Landry, 2018 2nd
Then I made a sweet trade at draft day for a potential game-breaker
- SENT: 2.02
- RECEIVED: Taylor Gabriel, 2018 2nd
I felt like I had good RB’s and one team was pestering me for Jordan Howard, and I wasn’t a huge CJ Anderson fan (the Jamaal Charles pick up worried me) and I needed to improve at TE.
- SENT: Jordan Howard, CJ Anderson, 5.02
- RECEIVED: Zach Ertz, Isiah Crowell, Adrian Peterson, 2018 1st Round
The rookie draft came and I selected Josh Reynold, Joe Williams, D’Onta Foreman, and Gerald Everett.
Now I’m thinking, ok. All I need is a stud WR, and a better second QB and I can compete. Well, I think I made out pretty well with the next four trades to complete my journey from a 3-10 team to possible title contender.
*SENT: 2018 1st, 2018 2nd, Josh Doctson
*RECEIVED: Jordy Nelson, Taejae Sharpe, 2018 3rd
*SENT: 2018 2nd
*RECEIVED: Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater
*SENT: Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater, 2018 2nd
*RECEIVED: Andy Dalton
*SENT: Allen Robinson, Isiah Crowell, 2018 1st, 2018 2nd
*RECEIVED: Julio Jones, Julian Edleman, Danny Woodhead
Now my roster looks like:
- QB: Tom Brady, Andy Dalton, Carson Palmer, Tom Savage
- RB: Melvin Gordon, Lamar Miller, Danny Woodhead, Adrian Peterson, Joe Williams, D’Onta Foreman, James White, Dion Lewis
- WR: Julio Jones, Jordy Nelson, Julian Edleman, Jarvis Landry, Rishard Matthews, Taylor Gabriel, Tyler Boyd, Malcom Mitchell, Marvin Jones, Josh Reynold
- TE: Zach Ertz, Eric Ebron, Antonio Gates, Gerald Everett
My gosh I love dynasty.
