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.

    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less.
