Starting positions, 2xQB, 3xWR, 2xRB, 1xFlex, 1XTE, 1XKR, 1 DEF. It is a PPR League.

Trade with last player on each team optional in trade, I asked for Flacco instead ofheyward-bey, but he countered with Antonio Brown. I was trying to get a better QB also.

current team:
QB: Andrew Luck, Big Ben, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Andy Dalton
RB: Reggie Bush, Ryan Matthews, Doug martin, Michael bush, Dexter McCluster (WR/RB)
wr: Brandon Marshall, Victor Cruz, Steve Smith, Antonio Brown, Torrey Smith

TE: Witten, Pettigrew


Def: SF

The numbers net me about 50 more projected points for this year, but I feel I am giving away my future and betting everything on Foster remaining a stud for the next 2 years. My keepers next year would probably be Luck, Matthews, and Martin if I do not do this trade.

I give:
Doug martin
Ryan Matthews
Andrew luck
Torrey Smith
Antonio brown

I get:
Arian Foster
Ben Tate
Mark Ingram
Darrius Heyward-bey
Joe Flacco

I don't like this tradse imo you are giving up 2 # 1 RB's for the # 1 and his back up, and 2 very good WR's for a 3 headed RB group and a WR with upside and finally Luck has to throw the ball and Flacco has Rice

I was thinking the same, but I can afford to give up the WRs with my team.

I can get the trade through by keeping Brown and not getting Flacco as well. Does that make a difference?

No way. You're leaving yourself no depth whatsoever and I'm not even clear who you'd play at flex? You're looking at Bush who may be fine for a week or 2, but that's about it. He's not a solid flex option after that. If you stick with your current team, you've got Martin as a flex.

In general I like to take the following approach: In deeper leagues- 2 solid #1's in the top 10-15 range are better than 1 stud. In shallow leagues, 1 stud is better than 2 solid #1's in the top 1015 range. It seems this is a deeper league and therefore you're better off with 2 solid #1's. Keep your team as is.
QB: M Ryan
