PPR league, 2 points for very 5 rushing attempts. We start 2 RBs, 2 WRs and a flex.

I have been offered my Forte and Jordy Nelson for his Ridley, Alex Green & Greg Jennings. I think this trade would be a easy one to make if Jenning were healthy. Since Jennings hasn't been playing I'm just not sure. What does everyone think? My RBs are getting thin.

My other RBs are Murray, Donald Brown, Vick Ballard, Michael Bush.

My other WRs are Julio Jones, Percy Harvin and Eric Decker.

your set at WR, but i wouldn't give up Forte. Murray is hurt i think D. Brown is also and M. Bush isn't gonna see a lot of action and i think Forte is much better play then Ridley and with your point system i think forte will get more rushes and passes then Ridley will. That being said, I wouldn't mind having Ridley as an option on my bench. Jordy's stock just went up after his play Sunday night so if you could work another deal that keeps Forte out of the conversation, that I would do!

I don't like the trade even with a healthy Jennings. Green is a rb on the Packers and Rodgers said before he went off against Houston that they had been running too much. Seems he likes to throw to get his macho going, lol. Green is a serviceable flex or low end RB2 at best, so he has little value in evaluating the trade in my opinion. Jennings is hurt which makes Nelson a better option and Ridley is a downgrade at RB to Forte, even though I like Ridley. Makes your starting lineup worse, but might improve your team slightly. Since you don't get points for anybody who doesn't start, I don't make the trade.
Start 1-QB, 2-WR, 2-RB, 1-TE, 1-WR/RB/TE, 1-K, 1-D

I dont like the trade either. Jennings is hurt, Ridley has been good, but he is one key fumble away from Fantasy irrelevance and A Green is a hope and a prayer at best that he pans out as worth much. You give up two players with solid positions on their team for the recycling bin on this guys team.

DO NOT MAKE THE DEAL. Stick with your guns and do whatever you can to make it until Murray gets back, or look for another deal where you get some players wtih a more solid outlook.
