“As a final humiliation, you must walk home naked, dragging behind you the stone of shame” – Number One (Homer The Great) Welcome to the Week 2 Buy Low Report. Before we get started, I’d like to issue a mea culpa on Kareem Hunt. Hunt came out and smashed all expectations in Week 1, posting 45.6…

I am trying to trade for Abdullah and the owner is considering him for Snead. Other RBs are:
Doug Martin, Vereen, Prosise, JC, Foreman, Hill
WRs: Jordy, Fitz, diggs, britt, Snead, Tyrell williams, kendall wright..
I am worried that I am going away from WRs too soon. We can start 4 WRs , 1pt ppr. If I can trade wright for Kamara or put in a bid on Cohen - it may be the best choice.. thoughts?
@devinmci - since you mentioned Abdullah in your trade for column..
Edit: I am hoping Kearse or Wright can fill the gap vacated by Snead..

I'd trade Snead for Ameer. Obviously I have him ranked higher personally, but just from a roster management perspective, Vereen looks like your only reliable starter right now, and worse game scripts could hurt him badly, considering he had zero carries.
WR depth is great for this format, but you also have to work with what you have. I would absolutely trade Wright for Kamara, although I dunno if you'll be able to. I would also make all of these moves even if you were able to win Tarik Cohen. (I'm more confident in Kamara's targets than Kearse or Wright, to be honest).

Thanks Devin. Thanks @FF_Contrarian.. Yes, all my RB eggs are in the Doug Martin basket with the assumption that he can come and take over the backfield and provide strong performance. Having abdullah will add some depth. the trade offer has been sent to Kamara owner, we will see how that goes.. also, I bid 105/200 for Cohen, there is a RB2 our waivers don't clear until tomorrow.
Other choice is Fitz for Hogan + Abdullah, but I prefer snead..
Oh! and marlon mack is avbl, dropping hill/charcandrick west to get him..

I'm with @devinmci here. Ameer's being utilized as the workhorse RB, and I'd have considered him a Buy Low as I think most other owners don't know what to make of him quite yet. By buying into Ameer right now, you're getting a good deal as Ameer is being used as the teams workhorse but failed to deliver against a stout run D. If you can move Kendall Wright for Alvin Kamara, you make that move in a heartbeat and laugh all the way to the bank. I think that Kamara has the potential to be NO's version of Tarik Cohen. If the NO/NE game does indeed shoot out, then I suspect Kamara sees a ton of work this Sunday and will be the next hot waiver wire add.

Kamara owner hasn't yet responded but I am getting AA for Vereen + Snead. Might work out ok, although I hate to give up Vereen, he didn't have any carries... Lost the bid for Tarik by 2$ (I bid 101, lost to 103/200).
#7 By: hrr5010, September 16th, 2017 16:56
Yeah. I hate to see Vereen go because he has a nice PPR floor. I don't mind moving Snead. NYG have a decent run blocking unit though, so I'd be worried slightly. Hopefully it works out.

I'd wait a week or two before trying to grab ameer, he didn't look great and has a few bad match ups coming up. It's possible you can get him for cheap before the schedule eases up
#9 By: Ginoooooobliii, September 16th, 2017 19:56
@hrr5010 Thanks again for responding. The owner decided to keep AA as he got Kearse from FA and is comfortable with him. We will see how it goes...
@harryseal561 Thanks! Yeah, NYG will be a tough match up for rushing.. hopefully his enthusiasm will be low.
Now, I am trying to see if I can get J. Mixon, Cooper or Dez. What would be good values? Snead + Vereen for Mixon may be good... Fitz + Vereen for AC... Dez may be slightly cheaper after his tough slate, esp if Fitz does well. Problem though is Dez has SEA in playoffs..

If you can get Amari for Fitz+Vereen, you're Harry Potter.
#11 By: Ginoooooobliii, September 18th, 2017 13:30
haha! if only.. but there won't be a better opportunity than now.. I was hoping that Fitz would really go off against Indy, but GLSP did temper expectations for him against the colts..
