    Big RB Deal

    I am looking to deal RG3 and either Lynch or Charles to get McCoy and Welker. I already have Ryan as my QB and Welker is the best available WR on a team that desperately needs a QB after the injuries.

    Now Charles appears to have the easier schedule going into the playoffs, the question is will KC ride him like against PITT to get him back to fantasy relevance and Lynch has a few tough match-ups. I've been reading recommendations to swap Lynch for Shady based on schedule and that the Eagles will rely on McCoy with Foles at QB.

    Thoughts? Who should I swap around?

    • I would include Charles in the deal. Although Lynch doesn't have huge numbers, he is an exclusive back in a league that doesn't have many and he will always get the work. You don't need RG3 so I say it's a win to gain another WR and a high-tier RB.

      • Lynch currently is outscoring McCoy by almost 30 points (on one more game, but still) and Lynch isn't playing behind a brutal offensive line or with a backup quarterback. But Lynch faces Miami, Chicago, Arizona and San Francisco in four of the five games out of the bye this week. There is a nice matchup with Buffalo in there and Lynch is pretty much matchup-proof anyways, so this is close, but with Nick Foles at quarterback I believe the Eagles will rely on the run a bit more and there will be a regression to correct the lack of touchdowns. I feel McCoy finishes strong.

        Not my writing, but it specifically pertains to your predicament.
