    This is the first year I've played fantasy football in almost a decade (the last year I was serious about it was 2005). We started an office league and I wound up with a pretty strong team. Its a PPR league, 12 teams deep with 1QB 2RB 2WR 1RB/WR Flex 1 DEF/ST and one K.

    My roster is:
    QB: Tony Romo/RGIII
    RB: Sproles/D. Martin/R. Bush/B. Tate/D. Thomas
    WR: C Johnson/D. Thomas/D. Moore/K. Martin/E. Sanders
    TE: J. Graham
    DEF: GB
    K: A Henrey

    I'm 2-0 (well technically 1-0 but I'm winning by 50 pts and D. Thomas has to play still).

    I've got a couple of questions:

    1. Should I trade Bush? He scored 41 pts this week (I believe that's the highest point total anyone has put up in the 2 weeks of the league) but right now he's the sole back in the backfield. With Thomas out he might score some points but he won't be doing that for too long so I think his stock is at an all time high right now.

    2. Someone offered me Manning/Britt for Romo and C. Johnson. Someone else offered me Dez Bryant, Jay Cutler, Marshawn Lynch for RG3.

    The only reason I'm entertaining these is because I'm worried that once RG3 starts facing real defenses he might be in trouble. Romo is hot and cold. Is it worth giving up Johnson (injury prone and I'm starting to worry about Stafford) for that? RG3 could go into a tailspin and Romo is scary every week. So stability at the QB position in exchange for some questions about the WR position.

    If I pull one or the other off I don't think its a good deal but it makes sense if I pull off both of them doesn't it?

    Unless you mean "Chad Johnson" with the C, there is no bizarro universe that I can think of where this trade is worth considering. That's a terrible trade, and you take on the risk of Peyton's neck. I would try to swing Romo and Martin for Lynch and Cutler. Go with RG3 as your main guy, he will get stats every week, no doubt about it.

    Manning/Britt is an interesting trade. Both can be amazing if they stay healthy, but are both injury prone. Was thinking wrong CJ maybe here. That's a little bit tougher. I have Britt and I like him if he's health but that's a big if.
