ESPN standard scoring. 1 pp 10 yards rushing/receiving. 6 pp TD. 1 pp 5 receptions, 1 pp 10 rushes. Start 2 RBs, 2 WRs 1 rb/wr flex, 1 wr/te flex.

Team A trades Wes Welker. Team B trades Ryan Matthews.

Team A's other WRs: Percy Harvin, Demaryius Thomas, Jeremy Kerley. Best RBs are Spiller and Leshoure.

Team B's other RBs: Forte, Doug Martin, McGahee, Fred Jackson. 3rd and 4th best WRs are Dez Bryant and Malcolm Floyd.

Is this a fair trade? Who do you think wins? Lineup analyzer says negligible effect all around.

It does look like both teams are just swaping around players. They are both averaging about the same points per game in the games they have played. That said I like Matthews better. I typically favor the RB because they get more consistent points which helps avoid a meltdown in the playoffs. I also like Matthews potential upside if he can hold on to the ball. For those reasons I would make a trade to get Matthews and give up Welker. You have enough flex spots that this is not really a matter of depth or position.
Keeper League- start 2Qb, 2Rbs, 3Wrs, TE, DEF, K, and 2 FLEX (Wr/Rb/TE).
QBS: Brees, Roethlisberger, Locker
RBS: Rice, MJD, Matthews, McFadden, Mendenhall, Hillis, D Richardson, Pierce, Goodson
WRS: Wallace, Nicks, Maclin, Harvin
TES: Gronkowski,
K: Akers

I agree with my Niner brother and give up Welker to get Matthews. Good luck.

what are your other RBs? How many WRs do you have to play every week? I dont like this trade if you start 3 WRs every week which some leagues do.
