Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
in a 2RB/2WR league, already have Fitz and AJohnson as my WRs, with Marshall as my backup. I picked up Miles Austin as trade bait, as i am in need of RBs. I have Grant, Portis, Bradshaw, JJones, Maroney, but need a consistent 2nd RB.
I have offered Austin to one team who has Chris Johnson, Slaton, Benson, and TJones, but he won't bite. I have tried to get Mendenhall and McNabb for Austin (and my backup Orton so I can upgrade from Palmer and possibly one of the above RBs), no luck there either yet.
I could get Westbrook, that one was offered to me. Could try and convince the same owner to part with Jacobs instead.
Anyone have any other suggestions or recommendations?

I have presented most of my trade opportunities. The guy with CJ/Benson/Slaton/TJones (but has DJax and Welker at WR)
the guy with Gore/DWill/Mendenhall/Bush is hurting at WR with Boldin/Ward/Burleson
are my main 2 options. I offered Fitz for Turner but he only has Ronnie Brown and Knowshown behind Turner so not sure he would do that.
I agree with the above guy about trading one of your other WRs. That Austin is a good guy to keep and you're more likely to get a bite by shopping Fitz or AJ. You could get someone like CJ or D-Will. Or you could target someone like Ray Rice with Austin.

The guy that has CJ has DeSean Jax and Welker at WR so he isn't quick to jump.
DWill is owned by owner with Gore and Mendenhall, who i was tempted to get. (We are also Panthers season ticket holders so DWill might get a little more favoritism by the owner).
Ray Rice owner only has Lynch and LT so doesn't want to give up Rice for Austin. (He has RMoss and RWhite so not much of an upgrade).
