Brandin Cooks + ? = McCaffery

Postby Mustachio » Mon Oct 09, 2017 9:21 pm

Standard scoring 14 team non ppr except 6 points for passing tds. I loved McCaffery in college and RBs are in high demand in this league. I won't trade Mike Evans, but here are the main guys I have:

-Cooks
-Alex Collins
-Carlos Hyde
-Bilal Powell
-Isaiah Crowell
-Jeremy Maclin
-Ertz

I'm winning games but I don't see how that lasts. What's the consensus? Should I even go after him?

Cmc seems to be an interesting character. Definitely hasn't lived up to potential, but it's not like he's had a whole lot of development time either plus he missed a lot of early prep time due to dumb college rules.

I feel like that should be a straight up offer, if they are really that stingy with RBs I don't think I'd want to add more than Collins or Maclin on top depending on I feel they need more WR or RB depth.

Also 100% don't trade Evans :thumbup:

Standard scoring id actually rather have cooks straight up. Cooks is averaging more ppg at a position that scored less normally

Thanks for the advice, I appreciate feedback. Sorry I don't have my whole roster posted. I actually agree that Cooks' youth/QB/skill makes him equal to (if not better than) McCaffrey. My problem is that if Hyde doesn't start, all I have left is Crow, Powell, Forte, Jalen Richards and Alex Collins. That's pretty awful. Seeing as I have Brees, Ertz, Evans, Hyde and Cooks, I might stay put and hope consistency keeps me afloat.
