Payton & Warner

11 posts in this topic

I have both of these guys on one of my teams, but I really lack a solid running back.

Should I try to trade one of them for a solid back? Which one should I trade, and what kind of back should I expect to get in return?

I've got my eye on a couple of other teams in the league who look like they could use a QB. One of them has Micheal Turner, and few other decent backs. Should I expect to get a Micheal Turner in trade?

No, it's not a keeper league. So next year doesn't matter.

Well I think you should have known ahead of time that Walter Payton was not playing this year so I think you will have a tough time trading him regardless how good he used to be. I do think you could part with peyton manning for an upgrade but I doubt you will get someone like turner for him. I would lower your expectations a bit manning is no longer the stud he once was.

Have you looked around??? Peyton Hillis from Denver is now their starting RB, the Rams are without Steven Jackson for a week or more- is his back up available?? Cadillac Williams was just reactivated, and is expected to play, is he available?? This has been an injury filled season for RBs, and it seems every week a new RB is taking over somewhere. I see Addai was just dumped in my league- why? Is he hurt as well? If so, see if Rhodes is out there.

Addai and Rhodes are spliting the carries, neither are hurt but neither will get the bulk of the carries.

Depending on the manager you might be able to find a guy willing to over pay for Manning just becuase of his name. Going into the playoffs I would probably try to trade Manning and see what you can get for him. A back up QB doesn't do you much good once all the bye weeks are past.

Manning is a stud so you should expect someone like Turner at least. Keep Warner, the way he's been playing is amazing. I have him on my team and there is no way i'd get rid of him.

There has been no mention of Addai being hurt must be a MO-ron that dropped him.

I signed hillis. The next day Denver went out and got Tatum Bell and somebody snagged him before I had a chance. I dumped hillis and picked up Norwood.

I signed Cadillac, but don't expect much out of him.

I got a guy interested in trading Manning for Micheal Turner. He's a losing team that's a long shot to make the playoffs.

Hillis is still tabbed as the starter, Bell has been mentioned as being a week or more out before he is the starter.

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
