    I like Jennings the most of those guys. Would have a hard time passing on that, but I would try to improve my bench by getting someone other than Bryant.

    I feel the same way, but Jennings hasn't looked good and has been hurt a lot recently.

    Jackson had a great game on Sunday..

    What to do...

    I'm a fan on V.Jax. I think him and Freeman are going to do very well together. I wouldn't make that trade.

    It's a wash imo. all these guys have the same issues..

    They all have had trouble in the past answering the bell week in week out..

    All of their qb's have other options that can (usually do) overshadow them on any given week

    don't be fooled by V jax..dude will be "questionable/out" before you know it

    it's an even swap if you ask me..

    Megatron is about to go up against the titans defense next week...they have slow midgets all over their secondary....might want to wait a week before you offer this trade.

    Yeah, but look at his RB's. He should probably do the trade for that purpose alone. I think AP's gettin ready to get going. I'd do it, but that's just my opinion

    Yeah, my RB's stink. I drafted later in the first round. Plus, it's a traditional ESPN league and a non-PPR. Backs are the main source of points.

    AP is going against San Francisco this week, so his value will probably drop. Calvin against Tenn ought to have a nice day. Might be able to get more in the trade if you wait until Monday. I'd want AP and MacGahee if possible, just throw in any of your current RBs.

    Maybe i read it wrong, but the bolded underlined is the key there. I read it as:

    AP for Megatron straight up or

    Megatron for Mcgahee/Crabs & Schaub as a package.

    & if the latter is the case i wouldn't do b/c Mcgahee is a tremendous step down from AP & your rb corps isn't improved that much.

    Not sure who gets whom, but I want to be on the Jennings/Bryant side.

    My rule: Never trade your studs. Megatron = mega-stud.

    In my big money league, my roster currently looks like this:

    QB: Eli Manning, Luck
    RB: Ray Rice, Andre Brown, Mikel Leshore, Adrian Peterson, Toby Gerhart and Fred Jackson
    WR: Antonio Brown, Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams (TB), Malcolm Floyd
    TE: Dennis Pitta
    K: Matt Bryant
    DST: Buffalo

    It's a PPR league, so I'm a little thin at WR. Since I now have quite a RB corps, I'm thinking of trying to finagle a trade for a starting WR for one of my RBs. I'm proposing a trade of AP for AJ Green to try to get discussions going. Other possibilities I could trade for are Reggie Wayne, Percy Harvin, Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, etc. I'm thinking a hurt Fred Jackson for the hurt Hakeem Nicks would be great, because the guy who has Nicks also has CJ Spiller. Any ideas on this? I really need another WR.

    I think Adrian Peterson for AJ Green is not a good trade for you, personally.
    You've got Ray Rice and then a bunch of maybes at running back. AD and Ray Rice are an awesome 1-2 punch. Don't break that up.

    Andre Brown has high trade value right now -- I'd be looking to sell high. As does Mikel Leshore. Fred Jackson for Nicks would be a steal if you could get it

    So how about this trade given the lineup above:

    I trade Adrian Peterson and (Fred Jackson or Andre Brown) for AJ Green and Matt Forte. (It's PPR)

    Thoughts? I need another WR, and getting a stud would be nice. I can wait on Forte, but if he doesn't play for a few weeks, I'll be OK.

    AP for AJ is pretty much straight up.

    Brown for Forte is lopsided in PPR.

    I'd do it.
