M. Forte and Denarius Moore for Green-Ellis and J. Maclin

My team:
J. Cutler, J. Flacco
J. Charles, B. Green-Ellis, R. Jennings, Ryan Williams, I. Pead
W. Welker, A. Brown, J. Maclin, R. Wayne, R. Cobb
J. Graham, J. Cook
Lions D
J. Hanson

It is a PPR league, but ONLY for WR and TE receptions. RB scoring is NON-ppr. 1pt for 10 yards rush or receiving. 6pts all TDs. 6pts for 100 yard games rushing or receiving. Is Forte enough of an upgrade to lose Maclin. Thoughts?

Were you offered this? Or thinking of offering? If offered, I'd take it. If you're offering, I don't think it will be enough.

Yeah I think Forte is an upgrade in a PPR league for Maclin. I would take him over BGE. D Moore might be a bit of a sleeper this year, at least OAK has a QB who can get the ball downfield, that is a plus. Is nursing a minor hammy injury but should be ready for Week 1.

I'm offering because all of his WRs are banged up. Moore is his healthiest WR. He is starting Sidney Rice right now. Thanks for the input!

I would definitely do that. There are plenty of WR that will come out of nowhere (that you'll find on waiver wire), but RB that get 20-25 touches per game are rare.
QB: M Ryan
RB: Bernard, Vereen, J Hill, A Bradshaw, T Mason, J Randle
WR: C Johnson, D Thomas, J Gordan
TE J Cameron

Start- 1QB, 2RB, 2WR/TE, 1 TE,

PPR Scoring (but yardage is worth 1/2 of rushing)
1pt/25yards and 5pt/TD passing (-2 INT),
1pt/10yards and 6pt/TD rushing.
1pt/20yards and 6pt/TD receiving.
