moss and william green for tomlinson...

in this league we start qb, wr, wr, rb, rb, wr/rb, wr/rb, k, d

i have a sick collection of rbs featuring shaun alexander, eddie george, stephen davis, and tomlinson. i start them at rb, rb, wr/rb, and wr/rb.

at the manditory wr slots i start chambers and glenn/morton.

should i make this trade??? it seems like i should, but i need alot of convincing to trade away a stud rb for a stud wr.

if i accepted it i could start green, morton, or glenn at the final wr/rb spot. if u think i should do the trade which one would u start?

I would take that trade. You are definitely stacked at RB. I know everyone is predicted better numbers for Tomlinson this year, but I'm not convinced he take the punishment yet. For example, he's already been hurt this preseason. Moss, on the other hand, has managed to stay healthy each year. Plus, if you believe Mike Tice, Moss is going to get 8-10 balls his way each game. This could lead to monster numbers this year. William Green will most likely put up average numbers. So, he's a good backup with your depth.

I would start Morton in that spot. I doubt Glenn will play half the season, whether from injuries or attitude. Morton should put up his usual numbers this year.

Trading quality for quantity isn't a good idea generally, but Moss seems like quality too, but I'd rather trade George or Davis... and I wouldn't add Robinson as he should be back for a good season.

I think you got the better end of the deal. George is too much of a question mark this season. Moss is guaranteed.

The only guarantee I can see about Moss is that he will be doubled and jacked at the line often (due to Carter's departure), which will free up the #2 WR and TE for more action and also more chances for running plays (Culpepper and RBs). Not only that, Moss will go down to injury this year IMO.

Everyone says that Green will be good, but he's a big Q mark in my book. Looks like he injures easily and he's only a rookie. Jamel White looks like he'll be the starter. Of course, that could change (and usually does), but Green would be good for insurance later in the season.
