The Story of my Team. Read if Bored! By Walker Thomas =]


#1

First there was Draft Day at 10th Pick. 2 QB PPR League Also

  1. (10) A.J. Green (Cin - WR)
  2. (11) DeMarco Murray (Ten - RB)
  3. (30) Ezekiel Elliott (Dal - RB)
  4. (31) Kareem Hunt (KC - RB)
  5. (50) Larry Fitzgerald (Ari - WR)
  6. (51) Martavis Bryant (Pit - WR)
  7. (70) Allen Robinson (Jax - WR)
  8. (71) Jameis Winston (TB - QB)
  9. (90) Danny Woodhead (Bal - RB)
  10. (91) Andy Dalton (Cin - QB)
  11. (110) Brandon Marshall (NYG - WR)
  12. (111) Frank Gore (Ind - RB)
  13. (130) Carson Wentz (Phi - QB)
  14. (131) Pittsburgh (Pit - DEF)
  15. (150) Julius Thomas (Mia - TE)
  16. (151) Wil Lutz (NO - K)

Then I dropped players for poor performance/injuries
Woodhead, Robinson, Dalton, Marshall, Thomas All Gone

Didn’t have any great pickups on the waivers I was winning early so always had low waiver priority (I know FAAB is beeter they wont switch). Although! I did find David Johnson on the waivers on a Friday and got him! (Lucky)

How I upgraded my Team was with trades.
Started with Larry Fitz for Emmanuel Sanders.

Then a big Package trade
Sent away Hunt, Sanders, Gore. Got in return Bell, Pryor, and Coleman.

Wasn’t happy still and last week I traded away Coleman for T.Y. Hilton. Paid off this week for sure!!

Then today I just sent away Pryor for A. Cooper. Not a big trade but he can ride my bench and hope he gets his crap together.

Now my team looks like this.
QB-Winston
QB- Wentz
RB- Bell
RB-Elliott
WR- Green
WR-Hilton
TE- Steferian-Jenkins (Doing really well for a solid TE)
Flex- DeMarco Murray (Needs to step it up)
K/DEF- Stream (Everyone should stream!)
Bench Spots
David Johnson (When healthy)
Amari Cooper
Andre Ellington
Jared Goff
Marlon Mack (Had really good game)
Martavis Bryant (Bust year?)

Moral of the long story that I hope someone read while bored at work. 6 of 16 Players are on my team from draft day.
You do not win or lose from the Draft. Make trades and add upcoming players.
Always be the guy who gets 1 player in a trade 2 for 1.
Never trade away players with a worry about bye weeks. Try to trade players who haven’t had a bye for players who have already had a bye week!
I use this site to look up how a trade looks.

I’d play ellington over demarco until he proves otherwise.

I am starting to think so also! I was thinking of trading him early on but never got what I wanted back. I am still looking to move him but the value is down.
