12 Team Standard League. Have a $100 waiver budget. Some idiot dropped Mariota (I have Winston). How much would you put in of your waiver budget to pick Mariota up?
What does the rest of your roster look like?
Start 1QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1Flex
QB: Winston, Dalton
RB: L. Bell, Crowell, McFadden, Burkhead, J. Williams
WR: Hopkins, Fitz, Ginn, D. Parker
Would drop J. Williams and then try to trade a QB (there are a few teams starting Bradford, Bortles, etc) or would drop Dalton.
Gotcha. Hmm, that’s tough. I never see high end QBs on the waiver wire. I think the issue you’re going to run into is that you will be bidding against the guys you want to trade Dalton to. I also always find it difficult to trade a QB. Personally, I think Dalton is a top 6 fantasy QB this year, so I probably wouldn’t trade/drop him, or bid too much on Mariota. I think you’ll need that FAB for WRs, not to mention bye week/injury replacements.
Yes, I was thinking the same thing about who I am bidding against. I like my QBs so I would just be looking to acquire trade bait. I was hoping to trade McFadden to the Elliot owner. I will probably just stand pat.
