I have been trying to do some off-season trading to shore up my RB2. So far no luck. Now I am wondering about trying to strengthen my WRs instead. Here is the rationale:
Players I'm thinking I keep: Rodgers, MJD, McFadden, Marshall, Welker, and Grant/Royal. I'm leaning toward Royal because it looks as though I am drafting top 4. Thus I could get either one of the top 3 RBs coming out, or else just pick Grant back up. I hate to give up on McFadden just yet, and I know for a fact one of the guys drafting ahead of me will take Rodgers if I drop him as he actually has respectable RBs and WRs but total garbage at QB.
The last place team just came under new ownership and has a backfield consisting of KSmith, LJ and nothing else. I was going to see if Grant and Royal together would net me Jennings. I'd clearly prefer Jennings over Royal at WR3. Then I hope that one of the rookie RBs falls to me. If so, great. If not, I pray and look elsewhere. RBs probably falling back in to the draft will be JLewis, ChTaylor, LWashington, MBush, EGraham, Sproles, FlxJones or Mendenhall, Fargas, Rice. So it's not going to be a great group. Therein lies the risk.
Being PPR, WRs are gold. Would you roll the dice on this trade? If not, do you agree with my premise of keeping Royal and grabbing the rookie or Grant again?
