Thanks Derek. As I say, I am new to the league so I am still learning the ins and outs there. Rep has been awarded to you, and to cdubb for your replies.
JJ Watt must hold some decent value in the league as I have had at least 4 other GMs contact me about his availability. I have made a few offers but no bites yet.
The latest contact asked about both Watt and Miller. He didnt directly come out and say he wanted both but asked about their availability. Looking at my roster, I have some serious holes at Offence. RB being one of the biggest. All my RBs are for the most part, backups. Looking at what is coming out of college for the upcoming draft, there is no Trent Richardson that I can see worthy of a high draft pick (unless others see things that I dont).
My best chance to score a starting RB is going to be through the trade route and I dont have a lot of assets that other GMs want. I have to make sure I get the best bang for the buck.
