Fantasy Team Name
Bust A Kaep
I am in a league (10 team, mostly standard except for a flex instead of WR3 and 6pts per passing TD).
I got stuck in some weird autodrafting problem about half way though my draft and it put me in quite the predicament. I scored big time in most areas with this point system but they autodrafted me Cam freakin Newton as my QB1. All the other good QBs i was waiting to draft for value were taken before it was my next turn. I luckily landed Roethlisberger as my QB2 but in my opinion, Cam is almost usless in a 6pt passing TD league. I may end up just rolling with Roethlisberger and possibly thinking of picking up Carsen Palmer. I dont know if that would be enough though. I tried about 20 different trades for people's QB2 (Cutler, Brady & Rivers) but NOBODY will bite probably because i won the league last year. Only one trade was proposed to me...i give Forte and get Stafford & Bell but i dont like that.
I can never trust starting Cam in this format. Should i pick up Palmer and roll with him and Roethlisberger and get whatever i can (almost anything) for Cam in a trade? I think Palmer, Tannehill and McCown are the only decent options available. Maybe the rest of my lineup will make up for it? Or should i keep trying to give more and more in a trade until something hits?
Fantasy football Trade Analysis -
Thanks for using our fantasy football trade evaluator! I understand your concerns given your leagues scoring system but I wouldn't so quick to pass judgment on Cam Newton. I personally own Cam Newton in an 18 team IDP dynasty league where all touchdowns are 6 points and Newton was 6th amongst quarterbacks in scoring last season. Now every leagues scoring is a little different and Aaron Rodgers was out of the picture last season but that still doesn't make me want to start Roethlisberger or any of those other quarterbacks mentioned over Cam. That said, I would definitely add Carson Palmer. His arm is showing its age a bit but he has some excellent receivers and a pass happy head coach. Check his stats from week 10-17 last season, I think you'll see why you should add him as a back up in case Cam doesn't pan out for some reason.
Best of luck in your dealings! Drop by anytime for free fantasy football trade advice!
