Been offered Calvin Johnson for Alfred Morris. Trade analyzer sez it's an even swap - no roster impact. My gut tells me Morris will eventually fall out of favor in Washington, as they like to play games with their backs. Johnson has had a down year so far, but I'm thinking things even out and he'll start overperforming. Thoughts?

Non-PPR league, 1 pt. for 10 yrds rush or receive, 6 pts per TD. Start 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 flex.

Current roster:

Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, Brandon LaFell, Danny Amendola, Justin Blackmon, Jerome Simpson

Arian Foster, Fred Jackson, Alfred Morris, Peirre Thomas, Rashad Jennings, Ben Green-Ellis

I wouldn't make that trade. I have Morris on my team and he is the #3 RB in standard scoring leagues. He puts up consistant numbers every week, while Megatron is up and down due to a sorry DET offense and a struggling M. Stafford.

Who would have ever thought at the beginning of the season this would be a trade you would have to think about. Who is Morris again!?
QB| P. Manning, M. Stafford

I thought Royster was going to be the main back. I ended up picking Morris up off waivers.......

I like the trade. You have Fred Jackson and Jenning for the forseeable future. C Johnson has to come back this year and start putting up numbers, its rare for someone to fall off the face of fantasy relevance... although his intials are CJ which does not bode well, and he was on the madden cover. All that said, I could not hold back from trading Morris for Johnson. Ill sell high and buy low when I am getting a potential Stud like Johnson.

I think you're crazy not to get Calvin Johnson for Morris. I'm guessing the other guy is hurting at running back.
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.
