    I am getting real tired of taking up a roster spot on "potential". So far it has been a waste and I am really conisdering just dropping him so I can navigate my bye weeks better. I want to be ahead of the curve, and I have held on to players too long in the past that were supposed to produce and never did. I just don't want to get burned again.

    Thoughts?

    For reference, my other WR's and RB's are:

    Santana Moss
    M. Colston
    J. Cotchery (worried about him too, maybe Braylon will start drawing double teams after the way he played last night and it will free this guy up)
    Sidney Rice

    RB's
    A. Peterson
    C. Portis
    C. Williams (thinking about dropping him too but I can't since he is supposed to be the go to guy)
    Sammy Morris

    Looking at possible trade offers I could make:

    Give up:
    C. Williams (RB)
    R. Williams (WR)

    Get:
    B. Favre (as back up)
    M. Forte
    He also has R. Rice, R. Williams, R. Grant

    ----------------Or------------

    Get:
    T. Jones (RB)
    D. Garrard (QB)
    He also M. Barber, M. Turner, R. Brown, C. Taylor.

    In week 8 I am going to be hurting for a QB and a RB.

    I could throw in Cothcery with those two and ask for a stud RB?

    I'd hold onto him. Miles Austin just had a 250 yard game over there and that won't be happening every week. Roy is still the #1 over there, and could end up producing a big game or two if Miles Austin can. Plus, you never know if one of your WR's will get hurt or not, so you might end up needing him because of injury and for your bye weeks.

    I might be tempted to pull the trigger on that second deal. Garrard has his moments and Thomas Jones is solid. I'm not really impressed with Roy Williams and Cadillac is good but stuck on a suspect team that seems to be always playing from behind.

    I went ahead and made the trade offer since the deadline is a week away.
