I'm in a 14-team PPR league with points per rush too. I'm currently in 11th (2-3) and probably going to be 2-4. My team hasn't really done good, but then again I've never had a healthy roster either. Lynch has been my horse all year, but not sure if I need to improve overall.

QB - Eli Manning; RB - Lynch; WR - Decker; TE - Olsen; 4 Flex spots - Forte, Leshoure, Jennings, Mike Williams; Bench - Finley, Woodhead, Hillis, Fitzpatrick; K - Zuerlein; D - Jets.

Was offered Jimmy Graham/Mike Wallace/Sidney Rice for Lynch/Olsen. Thoughts?

How many points for how many rush attempts? In a regular type PPR league this would be a good trade but I guess it depends, if you tell me you get a point for every rushing attempt then I would say don't do it

It's 0.25 pts per rush.

So far the point totals for the season, not including this week's games (except for Wallace) are

Lynch: 113, Olsen: 52; Graham - 62, Wallace - 82, Rice - 39

I like the trade. You need to do something since you are falling behind in your league and this trade dramatically improves your TE. I expect Graham to do better in the second half of the season than he has done so far. Wallace should continue to do well. Essentially you are replacing Lynch for Wallace in your starting lineup which is a downgrade, but you are increaing in your TE spot. I think it does help you and your at the point where you need to take some risks to make up some ground.

I would do the trade with the hope that Graham really picks it up in the second half and makes this deal a steal for you.
