I just traded DeAngelo Williams for Ronnie Brown, the owner didn't want a guy coming off an injury splitting carries chewing up one of the 3 RB slots we have on our rosters, so I'm pretty happy with my trade ;-D He's using williams as a bye week fill in and I wanted to get rid of him (after a solid week) before J-Stew steals the starting job; which is my prediction for that RB situation by the end of the season. I've got my RB and flex spot covered right now, but in a few more games I'm expecting Ronnie to be putting up solid numbers and definitely passing up Ricky on the depth chart. And by the sound of it that could be sooner then later.

QB - Jake Delhomme
RB - S-Jax
WR - Andre Johnson
RB/WR - Brandon Marshall
TE - Vernon Davis
K - Matchups
D/ST - Ravens
Bench: Marvin Harrison, Ronnie Brown, Phillip Rivers, Fred Taylor, Bengals D/ST (dropping soon)

I guess that's a reasonable trade, but it might have been a lateral move. DeAngelo looked quite good in a hostile environment @ SD. J Stew didn't do anything to make me fear he's losing his starting job anytime soon. Ronnie on the other hand might be taking the job from Ricky, but it's still up in the air. I have both DeAngelo and Ronnie, so I think they both have a lot of upside, it just hinges on them being able to get/keep the starting job.

More of the same, but Ronnie did score a TD last week and could be in line for more responsibility starting this weekend:

He did the same last week, but didn't start over Ricky Williams. Still, the two saw the same amount of carries and Brown executed in a goal-line situation. Brown is the slightly more desirable fantasy back at the moment.
