Confessions of a Trade-a-holic, Part II
By: paul.hickey | 8/25/10, 12:05 AM EDT
Last week, I recapped my offseason of trades – and while it wasn’t quite as long as a John Grisham novel, it certainly had as many twists and turns, as well as a cliffhanger of sorts.
You see, I left readers wondering whether I’d be able to pull off trading the 8 and 18 picks for the 6th overall selection.
Well, I did it, and it effectively allowed me to secure yet another one of the top tier of dynasty rookies, which – due to the Ben Tate injury – now ends after Ryan Mathews, Dez Bryant, C.J. Spiller, Jahvid Best, Demaryius Thomas and Mike Williams. After that, there is a huge drop-off to guys such as Arrelious Benn, Brandon LaFell, Dexter McCluster and Jermaine Gresham.
Then, even when I thought I was done prior to draft day (this coming Saturday), I wasn’t. I received an offer from another owner – I give Heath Miller for Justin Forsett. Now, I like both players, but I needed a little more. Dealing Miller would leave me with only Dustin Keller at TE, so I asked for the 23rd pick in exchange for the 29th. Done.
Now, I’ve solidified my RB depth and opened up the 11th pick to likely snag Gresham.
Or, maybe I’ll go with Rolando McClain. Hmmm. Sorry, I have to leave you hanging again, but I’ll have a full analysis of how things went in my 10-team dynasty rookie-only draft next week.
