DFWC League #5 Update
Nov 13, 2013 08:15 PM
A few weeks prior to Justin Blackmon's most recent suspension, I traded him straight up for Doug Martin (post-injury of course). Blackmon without the off-field problems is a top 7 WR. In the DFWC format where WRs are kings (because they score more points than RBs and TEs in PPR, the elite ones last longer than RB and you can start up to 5 of them), Doug Martin was an appropriate price for Blackmon (particularly for a team looking to win now). Of course, there were obvious risks to holding Blackmon (as there is holding a player like Josh Gordon), and this time, the risk blew up on Blackmon owners (of which I continue to be one in other leagues). It seems for now, at least in this league, that I dodged a bullet. You know the saying, "Better to be lucky than good".
Also in the last few weeks, I was able to add Jermaine Gresham ($88) and Markus Wheaton ($315) off the waiver wire.
My team (still under construction) is now:
Ryan Tannehill/Eli Manning
1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.10, 1.11, 1.12
