It's been an awful year for me injury-wise, but I'm still 5-3 through some clever trades. Non-PPR, Standard Scoring. 2RB/2WR/1FLEX.

My roster:

QB - Brees

RB - Peterson, Woodhead, MJD, A. Brown, Sproles (IR), McFadden (IR), Vereen (IR)

WR - Nelson, T. Smith, Cecil Shorts (lost Wayne, Cobb for season)

TE - Graham

K - Gostkowski

DEF - Bengals, Packers

I'm really concerned with my WRs, especially now that Jordy is catching passes from Seneca Wallace. Should I consider trading Peterson if I can get a decent RB back plus some WR help?

Something along the lines of Peterson/Cecil Shorts for Gore/Welker/a lower tier WR. What do you guys think?

It's a good Idea but I don't like Gore's playoff match ups if your playoffs start in week 14. Gore starts week 14 against Seattle, they have stopped him before. If you can get another RB on his level with a Welker type go for it.

good swing, I like the Thomas Vjax pickups and Morris should see more room now that RG3 is starting to run again.
