$1250 FFPC Dynasty League Off-Season Update #2
Jan 27, 2011 01:08 AM
The team continues to take shape and the excitement is building. I need to keep reminding myself that I should wait until closer to the draft in order to maximize the trade values of the draft picks, but I am finding it very hard to resist acquiring the vet pieces now in order to see what I have sooner rather than later. I now only have the 1.1, 1.3 and 1.5 picks left after another two recent trades.
Trade 1: Traded Danario Alexander for Fred Jackson. I probably would not make this trade in my typical lower stakes dynasty leagues since Danario looks like he could be special and Fred Jackson is merely a 1 or 2 year rental at best. Still, I have Spiller here and Fred Jackson could be a valuable piece to have in 2011 as a RB2 or RB3 if Spiller’s arrival is delayed. My RBs are now Stewart, FJax/Spiller and Starks. Not great, yet, but acceptable already “as is”. I plan to bring on more help in the coming months (Ingram, a vet or a combination of both).
Trade 2: Traded Rob Gronkowski and the 1.4 for Vernon Davis. He’s gone…again (Gronkowski) and he’s baaaack (Vernon). I’m really developing a thing in this format for TEs. My trio is now Vernon Davis, Dustin Keller and Jared Cook. Love it!
Here is the current roster (starters in CAPS):
QB TONY ROMO
RB JONATHAN STEWART, James Starks, CJ Spiller, FRED JACKSON
WR DEZ BRYANT, DESEAN JACKSON, VINCENT JACKSON, DWAYNE BOWE, Demaryius Thomas, Donnie Avery
TE: VERNON DAVIS, Dustin Keller, Jared Cook
Rookie Picks: 1.1, 1.3, 1.5 (plus two 2012 1st rounders including my own)
