1.2 Help after Guice Injury

Postby dc1986 » Mon Aug 13, 2018 2:26 pm

Hey guys- my team situation is below. It’s a 7 keeper league with 12 teams. I was 100% taking Guice at 1.02 but now I’m not so sure what to do.

The veterans who will be available are really nothing to write home about-
RBs: Tevin Coleman, Chris Thompson, Tarik Cohen, Isaiah Crowell, that sort of tier.
WRs: Emmanuel Sanders, Devin Funchess, Robby Anderson, Randall Cobb, Julian Edelman, etc.

Rookies usually go for the first 8-10 picks.

So what should I do?

Pick Guice & stash for a year?
Pick Penny, Michel, Chubb, Rojo, Kerryon, Freeman, ?
Pick Sutton, DJ, Ridley, ?
Pick a veteran?

I’d love to trade back but not sure what I can get. Any suggestions on what kind of offer to throw out there?
12 Teams / 7 Keepers Each

QBs: Kirk Cousins
RBs: Leonard Fournette, Jamaal Williams, Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead, Ty Montgomery, Phillip Lindsay, Kalen Ballage, Jerick McKinnon (IR)
WRs: Davante Adams, T.Y. Hilton, Corey Davis, Keelan Cole, Tyrell Williams, Courtland Sutton, Tre’Quan Smith, Christian Kirk
TEs: Zach Ertz
DEF: LAC, NYJ
K: Caleb Sturgis

If in your shoes I would wait out the rest of preseason to see how the various rookie RBs shake out in playing time. If I had to draft today I would be tempted to take Guice anyway as a 2019 stash, or if with your roster that includes Burkhead, grab Sony Michel as handcuff (although we all know the NE backfield is a coin flip week to week). This year I have the 1.01 and 1.05 p icks and still have no clear plan for 1.05. Am waiting for more preseason action to help me figure that out. 1.02 must be a real headache right now. Maybe you can get some greater value by trading it?

Headache isn’t even the word lol. I’m an LSU fan so was really looking forward to reuniting Fournette and Guice on my team.

I do want to trade it but not really sure what to ask for because I wasn’t prepared for this. One guy has 1.09 and 1.12. Is that enough straight up or should I ask for a future pick? Should I even drop that far? Help.

I'd take Penny, or a top RB in this years class. Everyone is too high on Guice IMO, if they think they should take him at 1.02 and stash him, this RB class has tons of talent that could help you this year. He's being overarated, he isn't some generational talent. He was taken at the back end of the 2nd round behind a lot of good RB's, and character issues weren't all of it. Guice will have had a bum knee for 2 years, he had disappointing numbers his junior years supposedly because his knee was hurt, now he just tore it. He isn't nearly the same prospect Fournette is. Just pick the best RB that can play this year. I think Penny is better anyway, but regardless, Guice was behind Marshall on 3rd downs in the first preseason game with Thompson out, so they don't really view him as a 3 down guy, and Gruden stated that already. He's a 2 down back with 3rd and short mixed in, and IF their passing down back gets hurt, he may spell them. I'd go with someone who can help this year, there are a ton of rookies people might be high on next year, try and get Guice then. You're got the making of a good team this year, don't stash with a premium pick, like I said, he's not that much better (IMO not better at all) then some of the guys avaiable.
