Walking the Walk- Trade Deadline!

Posted: November 24, 2010 in Fantasy Football

I was up until late last night trying to swing a trade to upgrade Brandon Marshall to a more reliable option. However, people don’t seem to understand Mike Tolbert is now THE guy in San Diego, and even when Ryan Mathews is available, will continue to see the lion’s share of the carries. No deal got done.

However, I did make a few waiver moves. I dropped Randy McMichael and Javarris James for Chris Ivory, the Saints main RB, and Ben Obomanu who looks like the Seahawks top target while Mike Williams is injured. I expect Obomanu to prove useful. So, with the trade deadline behind us, my roster going forward looks like this.

QB-Aaron Rodgers
RB- Adrian Peterson
RB- Ray Rice
WR- Roddy White
WR- Greg Jennings
WR- Brandon Marshall
TE- Antonio Gates
OP- Matt Ryan
OP- Troy Smith
DST- Giants
K- Graham Gano

B- RB- Mike Tolbert
B- RB- Chris Ivory
B- RB- Marshawn Lynch
B- RB/WR- Danny Woodhead
B- WR- Ben Obomanu
B- WR- Jacoby Jones

Obviously, waivers is always open, but there will be no more trades this season. I am 7-4, tied for the division lead, and I hold the tiebreaker. Two out of my last three matchups are against other playoff teams, including the 10-1 leader of the other division in week 13. Eight out of 14 teams make playoffs. The contenders have made their final roster preparations and it’s time to play the games and see where the pieces fall.
