Alright so I posted this in casinoplanet but that place is pretty dead.

I'm in a standard 10 team espn league(qb/rb/rb/flex/wr/wr/te/k/def). Standard non ppr scoring. Just got offered a pretty tempting trade and wanted some opinions.

My team:
QB: P. Rivers/J.Flacco/K.Orton
RB: A.Peterson/J.Charles/R.Brown/T.Hightower/J.Forsett
WR: M.Austin/H.Nicks/M.Williams (tb)/ R.Meachem
TE: M.Lewis/J.Gresham

I was just offered Calvin Johnson and Jermichael Finley for Miles Austin and Kyle Orton. Is it worth the dropoff at an already weak wr spot for the major TE upgrade? Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Scoring? How many people do you start at each position?

I don't know what you mean by dropoff.

He means dropoff because Miles Austin is putting up ridiculous stats, where Calvin Johnson probably won't match them.

What he said. Austin is killing it right now.

You would be trading 1 starter for 2...you have to ask yourself this, does Jermichael Finley's production more than make up for the difference in Austin and Johnson.

I'd stick with what you have, FWIW.

Well I know calvin is talented. I'm not sure how much having hill start will hurt him. How long is stafford out anyway?

I'd take that.

The best has yet to come for Finley and your TEs are WEAK.

I still think Jermichael finishes as a top 2 TE this year.

I'd take it before he pulls it in all honesty...

I do like Miles a whole lot but it's not like Megatron is chopped liver...

Yuck. If stafford was 100% I'd do it right away. Now I'm kind of 50/50.

It's a tough spot, Miles Austin is the most productive player in the trade...Calvin Johnson has a backup QB for about half the year and TE's are generally hit or miss no matter how much you like Finley GB has so many guys there...

Austins safe so I can see why he's reluctant.

I could also trade orton for zach miller straight up. Would that be any better?
