Austin for Blackmon

Postby AK49 » Mon Jun 18, 2012 5:35 pm

Team2 in sig

Austin seems to be consistently ranked in the top 15
I just don't trust him. Injured often. Suspect that Dez will take over as the #1 in Dal
I may just have rookie fever,but I'm intrigued by Blackmon and the $12 salary
I have plenty of Cap room ($51)
Thinking of offering the following

Austin $30 for Blackmon $12 & L Miller $19

Miller is over priced, but that's what happens in an auction sometimes
If he hits and takes over for Bush in a year with that strong O-line he could be well worth it
If not then I could dump/launder him

Hold Austin or buy Blackmon?

Just for full disclosure- no contract length but

RECEIVING - Top WR/TE - 20% increase / Average of #2 through #5 after their increases, whichever is greater
#2 - #5 WR/TE - $5 / 15% increase, whichever is greater
#6 - #10 WR- $3 / 10% increase, whichever is greater
12 Team PPR TE Premium
(1) QB Stafford, Cutler
(1-3)RB: CJ Spiller, F Jax, Mathews, Latavius
(2-4)WR: AJ Green, C. Patterson, Alshon Jeffery, M. Floyd, J. Blackmon, M. Wheaton, M. Brown
(0-2)TE: Julius Thomas, Ladarius Green, K. Rudolph

For me, that's a coin flip. I think it depends on how much of a risk taker you are.

Pairing AJ, Julio and Blackmon for a total of $6 more than Austin costs alone sounds fantastic IF Blackmon produces. If not, you traded away a 27 year old WR1 for a sack of magic "rookie" beans.

What would be the penalty for dumping Miller's monster contract if he flops?

Yeah that's my thinking as well
In this league there's no penalty for droping players/contracts
