Stafford/McGahee for AP
I'm sitting at 2-5. I may be out of contention, but I believe I can go on a run and at least have a respectable finish. I actually like my team, but Vick's injury history makes a big question mark.
Another GM (5-2), who is a big Vikings fan, has made several offers for AP. The one in the title is the latest. I'm asking for opinions because I'm wondering if I believe in Vick too much, or if I am biased about the value of starting RBs. I was thinking of a counter involving Brandon Marshall and MJD (I have R. Jennings), but honestly at this point I don't really see a favorable trade as being possible. Perhaps part of me wants to find something because I know its a lot more fun when you have the best player on your favorite team on your roster.
I love the Niners, but I only got the D. (Great I know, but likely not at the top in terms of fantasy points this year).
If you're willing to take the time to look at the rosters and give me your thoughts, I'm happy to add to your reputation if I can. I prefer repping people who actually share their reasoning rather than just saying names.
Keep in mind this in 1 year only, not keeper. Our format is:
QB, 2WR, 2RB, 1TE, 2Flex (WR/TE/RB), K, DEF, 2DL, 2DB, 2LB
My team (this week's starters in bold):
QB: Vick, Fitzpatrick
WR: Thomas, D. Jackson, Floyd, Gibson
RB: Peterson, C. Johnson, D. Murray, R. Jennings, A. Green, D. Wilson
TE: Pettigrew, Finley
DL: Babin, Peppers
DB: Landry, D. Hall
LB: Briggs, Weatherspoon Ellerbe (replacement for S. Lee)
QB: Stafford, Luck
WR: Marshall, Lloyd, Gordon, G. Jennings, Heyward-Bey, Hixon
RB: MJD, McGahee, LeShoure, Hillis, Ballard
TE: Bennett, Rudolph
DL: Smith, Morgan
DB: Petersen, Winnfield
LB: Bowman, Greenway
At this point QB is the big question mark for me. However, I don't really see Stafford or Luck as a huge upgrade over Vick fantasy point-wise. Perhaps a multiplayer deal involving Bowman and Marshall...but Peterson is the focal point of his offence. The only downside to him is that he has to face some tough defences this year.
