Precisely the point I was going to make. In addition to all the points made above, you'll have a tough time during the AZ bye week.

If you do orchestrate a trade, be sure to check to be sure that the player doesn't share AZ's bye week.

I wouldnt want all three, but you got great value for those WRs in the 3rd and 4th. You should be able to trade one of them away and be in better shape than if you hadnt picked them.

I didn't like that original trade, but I love the dillon throw-in. Giving up Fitz/Foster to get S. Smith/Dillon is very good for you in my opinion. I think Fitz and Smith are almost equal for this season but Foster is injury prone w/ a great backup behind him and Dillon has looked really good in the preseason.

Actually, that's a nice bit of drafting to pick up Fitz and Boldin in the third and fourth rounds. ;-D

Trade a reciever, having Edge and one reciever could be fine, but having 2 recievers from the same team is never good.

Luckily you have 3 stud players and they will be easy to trade to get good value for.

I would trade Edge. Fitz and Boldin could be a devastating combo this year... Think about it, between the two of them you are pretty much guaranteed at least 1 big game. I'd be happy to have a guaranteed big game coming out of two WR spots week in and week out.

Now I could see trading out one of them for a Steve Smith or a TO, but I would rather get rid of the Edge. RB/WR combos I usually try to avoid.

Hell, last year you were pretty much guaranteed TWO big games out of these two.
