There’s a five-way tie for first place right now, with the top four making the playoffs. Both myself and my opponent are locked in the tie, so I’m trying to pull out all the stops considering whoever wins will separate themselves by a full game from the other.
The podcast talks about the strategy of starting a WR who (in a best case scenario) is your opponent’s QB’s primary target, so that those imminent TD points ultimately go to both him AND you. That got me thinking, and putting some feelers out to the league, and here’s the current offer I have the opportunity to accept:
Give up: Joe Mixon and Alf Morris
Get: Alshon Jeffery
My opponent has Wentz, and while you could argue Ertz is the “primary” target, I think Alshon will get his too. I think Morris could go off any game, but also don’t want to wait and see if Tyron Smith plays, how Rod Smith continues to factor in, and when/how McFadden will enter the equation. And Mixon has been one TD shy of a bust for these past two weeks.
All that said, I’m leaning towards hitting accept. Thoughts?
