How the **** can I improve this team?

My pay league team is frustrating the shit out of me. Thought I had put together a decent team, but am sitting at 1-3. I'd like to try to improve the team via trade, but I have no idea how the **** to do so, considering every player on my roster not named Megatron is woefully under producing.

Am I stuck? Just forced to wait it out and hope I'm not 1-6 in three weeks?

Ridley's on the wire, but I'm betting he goes this week before me. Already put the claim in to drop Carter.

WR's are the likes of Hester, Massequoi, Burleson, Floyd.

TE's are ridiculously thin. Shiancoe, Dickson and Cook are best available. I'll pick up Cook for Davis' bye week.

Defenses - I play week-to-week matchups.

I'd definitely be trying to get Ridley.

I'm not worried about your WRs. I'd see if the guy who has Eli would be interested in Manningham.

Cook would be a good pickup.

Well there's always the "Try to rape someone in a Megatron deal" approach...

Let's face it - he ain't catching 30 TDs this season (at least I think he won't). It's odd to say sell high with a guy like that, but he's probably the hottest he'll ever be.

You'd absolutely HATE to do it, but with a bad team, you kinda have to take aggressive steps like that if you want to try to crawl back into it. You have a great #1 RB in McCoy and a passable #1b WR in Vincent Jackson. If you could take Romo and Johnson and deal him for another strong RB and a better QB, you might be able to take some steps in the right direction.

It's a dangerous homerun swing that could backfire miserably, but desperate times...

I had a team that really got hammered by injuries last year so I took the two healthy/productive players I had and traded them. I ended up making out like a bandit on a Frank Gore (I'm wanting to say Lloyd, M. Williams (TB) and Forte) and moved Reggie Wayne in a deal that got me McFadden after Darren got hurt (Wayne had just gone off for like 180 yards). I didn't really want to make either deal, but I had holes to fill and ended up getting 4 major contributors for 2 of them.

Sure, I got lucky, but sometimes you have to.

The guy who has Eli also has Schaub and Flacco.

Don't ask.

Thinking about seeing if the owner who has Miles Austin would swap him for VJ straight up.

At least then if I go down, I go down swinging - and the upside (double points) is enormous.

But really, I need upgrades at RB2 and TE - but don't have the firepower to improve, IMO.

This. Megatron's value is at it's highest. Could it backfire and he scores 20 TDs? Yeah. But it's not like he's going to single handedly going to win you games. Find the guy who has Matt Stafford and ****ing rape him.

The team who has Stafford is as bad as mine - 1-3.

I'd be better off trying to GET Stafford than dealing Megatron to him.

QB Matthew Stafford, Det QB
RB Rashard Mendenhall, Pit RB Q
RB Tim Hightower, Wsh RB
WR Dwayne Bowe, KC WR
WR Percy Harvin, Min WR
TE Antonio Gates*, SD TE
D/ST Ravens D/ST D/ST
K Josh Brown, StL
Bench Frank Gore, SF RB
Bench Plaxico Burress, NYJ WR
Bench Willis McGahee, Den
Bench Aaron Hernandez*, NE TE
Bench Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buf QB Agency
Bench Torrey Smith, Bal WR

Not really a fan of Gore, and Mendenhall is hot garbage right now.

It's going to be hard to deal with him.
