This is the place for team advice - should I make this trade, should I draft that player, etc.

Pick up Winston?

Postby keebs3 » Mon Sep 24, 2018 10:17 pm

Winston hit waivers last week. This would be for team 1. It's 1 QB and have several starting QB's on waivers (also only 10 team). Would anyone grab him in that case? I'm sure I can make room by dropping Edmunds or Doctson.

Who are the other starters sitting on waivers?
If you can't leave at least a 20% tip, you can't afford to eat out.

I’d prefer Winston over Trubisky. If you have an extra roster spot I’d consider picking up Rosen as well

I grabbed Trubisky because I have Cam on bye this week. He has a decent matchup- but I could also go with Bortles against the Jets or Keenum against KC. I do like getting Rosen this week though.

I'd go with Winston easily over Trubisky. I'm not giving up on him.

Easily Winston. Consider the upside (top-5 QB) vs. the downside (drop him for one of the other guys). No one else has close to that upside.

I'd prefer all of these guys to Winston... I also like Trubisky and have no problem with talking him over Winston as well.

No don't pick him up, he's got zero upside. Esp not now that OJ Howard, and Godwin have taken such drastic downward turns in their career.

He was only the #1 QB over the last 5 games of the season last yr, and the 5th most consistent QB in 2017 - http://www.fftoday.com/tools/crank.php

...yes pick him up. There's a solid chance he can emulate what Fitzmagic is doing and take the proverbial next step. NTM if he doesn't, just cut him. Zero risk with enormous reward, even for a 1 QB league.
