    trade help...do I need to do this?

    I am tempted to offer mendenhall and steve johnson for chris johnson (we have been trading offers). but is the drop off from steve johnson to my backups worth it? here is my team

    • your team has quantity, meaning alot of players worthy of being in your starting line-up. These kinds of teams are always smart to do 2-for-1 trades where you get the main superstar. i would do it.

    • I wouldnt do it as the drop from CJ to Mendy was less than a point per game last year and I honestly feel the gap will be less this year or maybe even favor Mendy over CJ. Based on the team i am guessing an 8 team league so

    • PPR league - I definitely do it as stevie will not catch more than 75 balls (more of a deep threat and will be targeted by DEFs). You can still find bargains @ WR as Stevie was last yr

      10 team league or smaller - I probably do it as there are alot of surprising WRs still out there

      12 team NPPR league with large rosters or larger league - I would hold onto what you have.

    • I don't think the upgrade from Mendenhall to CJ is big enough to justify losing Stevie. I don't claim to be the greatest football mind ever, that's my humble opinion though.
