This pertains to my Team 3 roster below. I am currently 4-4 and sitting in 5th place, and I want to set up my roster for a playoff push. I am understandably shaky at QB with Vick as my starter and Schaub at backup. There aren't any great options on the wire should Vick get benched (I could grab his unproven backup). Trying to be proactive, I offered Andre Johnson for Matt Ryan. I didn't expect it to be accepted, and it wasn't, but the counter-offer I received was to get Eli Manning for James Jones.



If I take this trade, I will immediately drop Schaub and pick up one of the following WRs: Shorts, Broyles, DHB.



Should I take the trade?

I would take the trade...Eli is a solid QB to roll out each week. I'm surprised the other team didn't ask for one of your better WR's like Harvin or Julio to make this trade.



I would do it.....you don't want Vicks backup.

I like DHB and Shorts as well as James Jones and when Jennings or if Jennings comes back Jones value will decrease. You are trading him high. If I were the other owner, I'd just pick up one of those guys. Make the trade, it makes your team better.

Absolutely make the trade. James Jones is good for a few weeks and then will drop off and he is usually sporadic as well. I think DHB is comperable off the waiver wire to Jone.
