PICK-UP

Q: Hey guys, love the work you're doing. I drafted in my first dynasty league recently and honestly I don't love my team. It' a standard scoring league now, but we're looking into modifying rosters/scoring in the next few years. Starting Newton, Murray, Spiller, Cobb, Hilton, Graham and Hopkins at the flex, I feel like there's no true direction. On the bench I have Fred Jackson, Christine Michael, Woodhead, Tavon Austin, Randle, Ingram, Khiry Robinson and Eifert, but I'm thinking of trading the studs for more youth as another owner made Sammy Watkins available. I know I can trade a RB combo for Watkins, and I feel like I could sell high on Cobb with the Raji injury. Do you guys think I should blow it up for the future or could I get a haul that can help me in the short term? Thanks for your help guys Asked 08/24/14 by Michael Kumar

A: NO!!!! You have a lot going for you. If you go after Watkins then you are already throwing in the towel for this season, and you do have young talent on your team. Hilton, Austin, Randle, Michael, Robinson and Eifert are all young with potential. I am not a fan of Cam Newton this season, so if anything I would just be trying to trade him with another piece for a better quarterback. Don't sell out for the future until your season is over. You have a young team with potential, and just need to add a difference maker, and that difference maker is not a rookie. Answered 08/24/14 by Houdini

Q: I understand with the 6 pt but doesn't ppr even it out to standard rankings? Mannings 50 Tds added 100 pts but so did b Marshall's 100 catches, right? And it's Kyle Busch and he's not doing so hot right now, thanks! Asked 08/23/14 by Daniel Fillmore

A: The PPR brings it closer but doesn't even it out. Last season Manning's 55 TDs alone would have netted you 330 points (or more points than any receiver in PPR last season, D. Thomas led the way with 319 points). Normally I am all about waiting till the seventh or eighth to draft a quarterback but 6 point passing TDs changes everything. PPR vs non PPR really doesn't change how others value quarterbacks in most occasions. The top 3 guys will go in the first two rounds no matter the scoring system. PPR changes the valuation of running backs in relation to wide receivers mostly. The Gap between Drew Brees and Cam Newton (2nd and 3rd abs in standard scoring last season) in your scoring is 91 points (5.7 points a game). That is the difference between Josh Gordon and T.Y. Hilton in PPR! Draft a guy who is going to THROW 40 touchdowns, you won't regret it! Answered 08/24/14 by Stagg Party

Q: From East Tennessee. I came up years ago to come up with idea of setting draft order by picking drivers in the bristol, tn races. Hopefully Kyle Busch will get me AP again. If he crashes and burns and I pick late, if dem Thomas and montee are both there, do I take them? Same team opinions confuse me. Or do I take a brees or Rodgers? 1pt ppr and 6 pt pAssing TD. You guys are great, thanks! Asked 08/22/14 by Daniel Fillmore

A: I really like the way that sounds, an added element of skill in setting the draft order! In 6 Point passing leagues I am all about grabbing a top 3 quarterback (Brees, Manning, Rodgers). With 6 point passing TDs having an elite PASSER from the quarterback is more important and the point spread changes dramatically. After that I would take either Ball or Thomas. I usually shy away from same teams a bit, but I think the Broncos are the exception to the rule. Good luck to Kurt Busch I guess! Stagg Party out Answered 08/23/14 by Stagg Party

Q: Would like your thoughts on my keeper situation: -Traded for JC last year and now have to choose between him and Megatron as my first round keeper (sacrificing round 1 pick, 11 out of 12). My second round pick was Julio and the league is allowing me to keep him if I should choose (losing second round pick). I was thinking that maybe I keep Ellington (free agent pickup, will cost me 9th round)instead of Julio and grab best available WR with my second round pick. I love Megatron but I think I need to go with JC. Then I would have a pretty good RB1 and RB2 combo and a solid WR1. I could use picks 3 and 4 on QB1/WR2 and I think I would be off to the races!! Thoughts?? Sliz Asked 08/14/14 by Owen Roddy

A: At the cost of the 11th pick I am definitely keeping Charles at the cost of an 11th pick, the value is just so great that it is totally worth it and you will be able to pick a solid top option at wide receiver in round 2. Ellington is by far the better value, in keeper situation it always comes down to value for me. Julio is worth that second round pick but Ellington far exceeds his price tag of a ninth round pick. Load up on wide receivers then and you should be all set. Stagg Party out! Answered 08/14/14 by Stagg Party

Q: Would like a little feedback on a trade offer I just received. I have Stafford and RG3 at QB, Cruz, Maclin,Mike Wallace, and brandin cooks at WR....Adrian Peterson Arion Foster Trent Richardson and MJD. Another owner is offering me Megatron, Demarco Murray, and Cam newton for Adrian, RG3 and Mike Wallace. Non PPR. I think I could live with losing RG3 and Wallace, would gain a lot at WR, and still have a decent back in Murray if I took the trade. Losing Adrian would cause me pain, but do you guys think its worth it? Asked 08/13/14 by Jon Jaedike

A: I don't like it. Your team is stacked, Wallace is going to outshine big time. I'd keep what you got. //d Answered 08/13/14 by d-Rx

A: I am going to have to agree with d-Rx. I think there is not enough value for what you would be giving up. Answered 08/13/14 by Houdini

Q: I have Jimmy already at TE. League mate is willing to trade me Dez for Gronk. What do I do? Asked 08/13/14 by Evan Metzger

A: You give up Gronk and get Dez? Hell yes make that trade. If the trade is you get Gronk and give up Dez - no, not even if you can play the second TE at Flex. Dez is a beast, let's just hope Romo stays healthy... if Weedon gets in there, he'll lock in on his Oklahoma State brother anyways. //d-Rx® Answered 08/13/14 by d-Rx

Q: Hey guys, Jester here. 12 team league PPR and bonuses for going over 100yards. We keep one player from the previous year as a franchise player with no effect on the draft. Had Ray Rice for years, then transitioned over to Doug Martin his first year. Going into this year, thinking about Montee Ball in what will be our first round. Not only for this year, but as my future franchise player. But Jimmy Graham will also be available. Drafting 3rd and I know both will be there. Which way would you go? Asked 08/13/14 by Keith Thurston

A: If it is a keeper league I am more inclined to go with Jimmy Graham. The fact that the shelf life for running backs is so short, and Graham will be a beast for the next 5-7 years makes it a no brainer for me. I love building around Jimmy in Keeper/Dynasty leagues. Answered 08/13/14 by Houdini

Q: Have you guys seen the plans for the new ATL football stadium? Holy shit!! I want to take up football and play in ATL. You guys rock! here's the link below http://thechive.com/2014/08/12/the-new-1-2-billion-falcons-stadium-is-a-sight-to-behold-18-hq-photos/ Asked 08/13/14 by brad sanok

A: Yeah it is a marvel, the ability to adapt to almost any event is great for the Falcons and the city of Atlanta. It should be a spectacle to see and a part of the city scape for years to come. In a few years it will be fun to be a Falcon fan on game days. Stagg Party out! Answered 08/13/14 by Stagg Party

Q: I'm stuck with the 8th pick in a 12 man PPR. I'm assuming Charles, Forte, Megatron, McCoy, and most likely Peterson will be gone by the time I'm up. So realistically I'm expecting to see guys like Demaryius Thomas, Eddie Lacy, Dez Bryant, and Jimmy Graham available. Any recommendations on where to go from there? I think I'd rather go with a stud WR instead of a 2nd tier RB but I'm open to suggestions. Asked 08/13/14 by Tom W

A: For me in a 12 team league this is how I see the first round. I would choose any of these running backs: McCoy, Forte, Charles, AP, Lacy or Montee. Receivers for first round: Megatron, Demaryius and Julio. Quarterbacks for first round: Manning, Brees and Rodgers and finally of course Jimmy Graham. I think all of these players are good to build around, but see how your draft unfolds before predetermining what you are going to do. Answered 08/13/14 by Houdini

Q: Hey guys, so there was an early run on QBs in my draft and couldn't grab a worthy backup to my QB Matty Ice. Should this be a problem I should work on immediately or would it be smarter to wait a few weeks and see if I can find this years nick foles? Asked 08/12/14 by Matt Weintraub

A: Matt Ryan has a difficult strength of schedule to start the season, but I would not freak out and give away talent to get a backup QB. Hopefully you have enough depth that you will be able to make a trade if necessary. There is always talent to be found on the waiver wire, so pay attention in the first few weeks and you may find your next Nick Foles. Answered 08/13/14 by Houdini
