I have a need for RB, I have good WRs in Jackson, Maclin and Wallace.

I have two trade proposals to improve my RBs, and I'm not 100% sure which way to go, I would appreciate the feedback from the great CP minds....

Vincent Jackson for Ahmad Bradshaw
Maclin for Ben Tate or Mike Tolbert


what I've been thinking all morning;

Jackson seems sorta boom or bust this year, but coming off a likely best game this season, his stock is really high. However, with Rivers throwing the ball, he may have several games this year like this weeks.

Bradshaw is disappointing this year so far. Is this a trend, or will he rebound?

Maclin, I love rooting for this guy. But he's given me the impression of injury prone. He has Vick throwing to him, which is another wild card. I'd hate myself to trade him and he end up being in the best three WRs stats wise. However, if I don't trade him and he gets hurt, I lost my chance to sell high.

Ben tate, success depends on foster's hamstring. d'uh. could be a good stop gap but probably not worth the trade.

Tolbert, phillip rivers, doing good, I don't know what to feel about this guy. They are playing the chiefs this week, so his numbers should be even higher for another week. His value would be pretty good for another trade in a couple weeks.

Bradshaw is in a full-on timeshare. I like his talent, but it's capped by Brandon Jacobs. V-Jax is the much better player in that scenario. You should be able to get a better player in a better situation.

I do like the idea of selling high on Maclin. Tolbert is going to continue to lose carries to Ryan Mathews, and Ben Tate will be looking at a committee at best when Arian Foster returns. Again, I think you can get better talent with more upside. Maclin for James Starks would be a good trade if you could pull it.

I've got Meachem I can also use for trade bait. Maybe I should offer him for tate or Tolbert

starting peterson and Kuhn, I also have M. Lynch who is a big disappointment, of course so is seattle.

I've thought about dexter off waiver wire and dropping ricky williams...

Ouch. I personally would rather have Bradshaw. He may split time with Jacobs but you're at least going to get guaranteed carries. Tate is a good RB....but as soon as Foster is 100%.....he's back on the bench. You don't want that when it's later in the season and you need wins to get in the playoffs.

How many WRs can you start?

You're good then. Wallace and Maclin are a good WR1/WR2.

You been talking to OTWP? LOL...

I understand that, but bradshaw is averaging only 10 points in two games, handcuffed. I have that already with Kuhn.

Touchdowns are all he's getting.

Kuhn getting a TD every week isn't going to continue. James Starks is becoming more of a complete back.

well I took it, but I tried to trade maclin for tolbert first and got turned down! and he wanted Maclin!!! I picked Dexter from the waiver wire, so between him and bradshaw hopefully I get a solid number 2 (cause I feel like I got shit on anyway....)

now it's up to the voters

I'm not surprised he passed after looking at his roster. By making that deal he's screwed himself at WR for Week 7, and really screwed himself at RB2, because Tate isn't going to play forever. Once Foster comes back, Tate's worthless, unless Foster gets hurt again.

Ultimately, you had to do something. You weren't going to be competitive playing Kuhn or Dexter every week at RB2. Bradshaw is 20th in RB scoring through 2 games and IMO, is a solid RB2. He's head and fucking shoulders better than Kuhn and McCluster, that's for sure.

No one else in the league had the RB depth available to give you a better player. And it's silly for you to sit on Wallace, Jackson and Maclin when you can only play two of them every week. You did what you had to do.

On my end, I'm praying to God that Starks keeps playing at this level, or I'm fucked.

Well, he wanted maclin - asked for a trade with any RB not named Forte. so I shot him a fair offer and then he declined. But whatever.

I just worry about maclin's health. I hope he continues and this is his break out year, he's certainly showing capability. Just damned if you do and damned if you don't sometimes....
