    QB Trade Advise...will return the favor

    Currently 6-3 in a standard 12 person PPR League. I like how my team is built except for my QB situation.
    QB- Rivers, Cutler
    WR- Green, Andre Johnson, Maclin, Floyd
    RB- Rice, Martin, LeShoure
    TE- Hernandez, Rudolph

    I feel that with Rivers or Cutler I cant win this year especially during playoff time weeks 14,15,16, but feel like I have to give up to much to get a solid QB. Which trade would you do or just leave my team as is.
    1. Andre Johnson straight up for Cam Newton. (Issue with this trade is i will be left with two sub-par WRs)
    2. Andre Johnson, LeShoure, Maclin for Eli & Cruz (Issue here is I will be depleting my bench)
    3. LeShoure for Shaub (Issue here is Texans are a run first offense and when playoff comes and their record is 13-3 how explosive will he be)

    Thanks for your help!

    • i like 2 alot. cruz and eli have a pretty favorable ff playoff schedule. i have thought about getting eli as well just for that. he has had his bad games and should bounce back. if you are worried about bench depth, dont be. especially during playoffs. during playoffs, just worry about handcuffing and backing up your guys

    • Check and see who has 2 stud QB's, but is lacking in other areas, and try to get one. Also look into someone like Palmer, you might be able to get him pretty cheap, but he always seems to put up good Fantasy numbers.

    • Would you be able to get someone like Freeman, Luck Dalton or Roethelisberger? I imagine if any of these QBs are on a team bench with a better QB starting you might be able to get them for a bit cheaper. I have Eli and even I'm trying to trade him so I wouldnt recommend that Eli trade at all.

    • how many of each positions do you play? not big on either of the 3. newton & Eli are up and down. and as you stated schaub is definitely on a run-first offense. going with that, you could see about trading johnson for cam & then trade leshoure for a decent #2 wr to go with green. maybe a brandon lloyd, as i think his numbers start to increase.

    • I would personally go for LeSHoure for Shaub if he will take it. I know they run the ball alot, But I have a feeling when you get closer to the playoffs they may be resting Foster a bit and throwing the ball more than usual. Eli is too up and down and as great as Newton is at times he is just as bad many other times. I would personally like Shaub before the others.
