    Clinton Portis for Greg Jennings? I am good at the RB position and weak at the WR department.

    I would be giving up Portis. Greg Jennings is the #1 reciever so far in fantasy and has pretty much the same points overall as portis in my league.

    We start two RB's and these are my running backs.

    Gore
    Portis
    Slaton
    Leron Mclain
    Derrick Ward

    we start 3 WR's and they are:

    Brandon Marshall
    Colston
    Holt
    Meachem


    I don't know when Colston is coming back so Marshall is my only reliable reciever. I think I can live with Gore/Slaton/Mclain at the RB position.

    What do you guys think?

    Yeah, I would totally do that. Jennings is dominating folks and you still have Gore and Slaton to play every week. Go for it!

    I'm not as eager...Portis and the Redskins offense is really good. Consider trading Gore instead.

    Jennings is awesome. A true #1 in GB. But I think you have a great #1 in Marshall. Marshall + Gore/Portis is better than Gore + Marshall/Jennings IMO.

    If you dont have a flex spot for another RB, then I would make the trade since you get 3 WR spots.

    I would definitely make the trade. Greg Jennings has been putting up ridiculous numbers.

    I think Forte's been giving me more points than Gore. It might just be a bias though. I've been following the Redskins secretly for a while. I really like how the offense works under Zorn and I think Jason Campbell is the most underrated QB in the league.
