Who should I trade Matt Stafford for?

Rank: Orangutan | 334

Alright here's my fantasy team. 12 team league

QB: Drew Brees
RB1: LeSean McCoy
RB2: Tim Hightower
RB/WR Flex: Steve Smith (CAR)
WR1: Vincent Jackson
WR2: Devery Henderson
WR3: Eric Decker
TE: Dallas Clark
D: Cardinals D/ST (starting this week vs. SEA)
K: Josh Brown

Bench players: Stafford, Knowshon Moreno, Mark Ingram, Bears D, Brandon Pettigrew, Lance Moore, Roy Helu.

One trade option on the board: Dallas Clark and Stafford for DeAngelo Williams, Dez Bryant, Scott Chandler (BUF)... should I take it?

Need some suggestions on who to trade to make my team better. I keep trying to think of options but I'm looking for some different opinions.

Have at it.

I wouldn't make that trade.

First, I would try to package Moreno and Hightower or Ingram to a team with a strong RB1 but weak RB2 or Flex. Try to get a legit RB1 as your RB2.

Second, after VJax, you're WRs are piss poor. Dallas Clark probably has little to no trade value, so I would either trade Stafford for a WR1 or try to snag a WR2 + Rob Gronkowski or something along those lines.

Pretty strong team but you need WR upgrades first and foremost and a better RB2 if possible. Stafford is going to be money this year so either trade Brees for name-value or Stafford for some top tier talent.

My name is Nicky, but you can call me Dre.

I would try to send Stafford, Hightower, and Moreno to someone for Chris Johnson and another receiver.

Chris Johnson will start to hit his stride probably around games 8-10, which is when other running backs and defenses will start to break down.

Not a bad idea. I'de send an identical offer to the Ray Rice owner as well though.

^^^I agree.

Ray Rice is a great fantasy player, but he should be a fantasy beast. Its a shame that John Harbaugh is wasting the prime of a very talented running back's career so he can have Joe Flacco throw the ball all over the field and create turnovers.

Ravens D + Ray Rice + Serviceable QB (Joe Flacco) + Solid Receivers = Super Bowl

John Harbaugh =/= Super Bowl Coach

But I digress, good trade ideas overall.

I had Newton as my 3rd sting QB (I have Brady and Schaubb), traded him for Fred Jackson... good move or not?

Also, I got Arian Foster for Peyton Hillis (already have Peterson so thought his risk could pay out huge in later weeks).

Arian foster is gonna have carries taken away by ben tate, they're pretty similar players

thanks for the suggestions. owner of ray rice in my league has aaron rodgers, so likelihood of accepting a stafford trade is low. sent the trade of Stafford, Hightower, Moreno for Chris Johnson and Santonio holmes

Who does the Shady McCoy owner have for QB and RB2?

Ooops sorry that was dumb on my part forgot from OP. Yah I'de see if the Chris Johnson trade pans out and try to work different angles there. You def don't need both QBs tho and can use some upgrades.
