I got this trade offer and I am wondering if I should do it. The problem is I have Calvin Johnson and he is on a bye and Thomas would also be on a bye, so I would be short a WR this week. I can pick one up in FA, but not much is out there. My other WR is Antonio Brown and it looks like he is averaging the same points per week as Thomas (18), so I am not sure this would be a upgrade and I could have Garcon and Brown in my lineup this week if I don't do take this trade. This is a PPR league. Please let me know your thoughts...Thanks!

Basically, you're looking at Thomas for Garcon. You don't need James. If they have the same bye week, just take the hit for one week and keep the upgrade at WR. Grab someone off the waiver wire and roll with it.

yea, forget Mike James.

I really don't see why someone would trade D.Thomas for Garcon at this point, but I imagine you'd LOVE to make that trade. But the bye wk does throw a glitch in it.

can you counteroffer to get 2 WRs for Garcon?

just a thought.

there are WRs on the waiver wire that will be VERY serviceable this wk, if you do a little digging.
