Alright well I made 2 team altering trades this week. One I completed just now so I won't have the player for tommorow but next week.
Right now my record is (4-5-1) and I hold the place for the last spot int he play-offs. The guy closest to me is going to lose this week because he had a couple of Jets and Decker have bad games on thursday and hes versing the 1rst place team. I have 2 games to secure a play-off spot with my roster. If I get in I think I could win a title because the people I traded for have easy schedules.
I TRADE: Hakeem Nicks, Bengals D/ST
I RECIEVE: Wes Welker
I TRADE: Steven Jackson, Darren Sproles
I RECIEVE: Maurice-Jones-Drew
I think I got a steal for Welker, and I dont mind the price for Drew because his schedule is rediculously easy, and Jacksons is the hardest ive seen. He plays the best run defense twice, the #2 run defense once and a few more top 10 run defenses. I didnt want to give up Sproles but thats what it came down too.
Ahmad Bradshaw(when healthy)/ Dwayne Bowe (for now)
Bears/Steelers D/ST (depending on match-up)
If you look at schedule strength for these players, i think if i make the play-offs I have a shot of going far.
Anyways, what do you think of the trades I made and my chances?
Its hard to say with Chris Johnson because he has been so inconsistent and although he stepped up last week, it was against one of the worst fantasy run defenses.
After this week Chris Johnson does have a very easy schedule but its hard to rely on that when he got shut down by the Colts like 3 weeks ago.
If I would want anyone for CJ it would be Matt Forte. I'd think obviously you'd have to give up a better reciever with CJ to get Forte but Nelson isnt his teams best option where as Mike Williams might be. I say good trade.
