its really close for me. Vick has more potential than anybody in the game. period. but you almost have to operate under the assumption that he will be hurt at some point this year.
The problem with your WR core is that Britt got in so much trouble I assume he'll be suspended at least a couple of games this year, and has to stay out of trouble. Collie is one of 6 targets for Peyton Manning. Knox is one of multiple unexciting targets for Cutler. Sure, any one of them could have a serviceable #2 WR output this season (or #1 in Britt's case if everything goes right), but they could also end up as below average #3 WRs.
I think if you can find another good QB to pair with Manning you will be better off since the rest of your roster is pretty darn solid with some true potential sitting on the bench for in season trades/injury replacement
I wouldn't do the trade. Vick won't play all 16 games and Forte really isn't that good. He either gets a bunch of points (receiving) or does nothing.
Maclin is a good WR (him and D. Jackson were actually pretty close last year fantasy wise. Maclin beat him 6 times and most games were pretty close). Charles is a great RB and with AP you have an amazing RB core, why break that up?
Your team is pretty solid, Moreno will probably have a good season so he's a good RB3 option for you. And you aren't that thin at WR, Knox and Britt will be good replacements for when Collie goes on IR.
i think i would make this trade, but by doing so you are going to struggle all year long with your wr's i would check to see what wr were still available and decide if i wanted to have that headache. plus it depends on what kind of format you use (if you are in a standard format with 4 points for qb td or not, or if you are in a ppr leauge). would have to look at other factors to decide. looks like a decent team either way. good luck!
