I would try to get AJ for Jennings and someone, AJ should beast it in the yardage bonuses
there is zero chance of me getting AJ, hes already said that. basically hes told me the last 2 offers he made are the absolute best he can do, and the most he will go for. so its either that or i stay with what i have (which im not complaining about having Schaub, Moss, Jennings, Avery, AP, PT so...)
For AP, you would have to get MJD and one of his WRs, but remember, he's trading on the fact MJD is being ranked as a Top 3 fantasy pick, and there is nothing wrong with that, but AP is THE best RB in football and proven at that. MJD will have to prove this season that he can carry the load and that he worth such a high pick, not to say that he wont, but we dont know. Looking at your team AP and Thomas (PT has plenty of upside), and the fact that you have Moss and Jennings, both playing with better QBs that Smith, I would keep AP and stay put!!!

he rejected my offer with MJD and AJ involved and sent me this back (which i think is absolute JUNK, hes trying to sell me names not value and im not going to buy into it):
I Give: AP/Moss I Get: MJD/Bernard Berrian/Reggie Bush/Jeremy Shockey
first off Shockey is a has been trash who won't start over my TE now in Zach Miller second, Reggie Bush is way too injury prone for my likes and third everyone has BOOSTED Berrian's value WAY too high with addition of Favre, this guy is calling Berrian a 'stud' in his reply with the trade offer.
am i blind to something here or what?
Pass on this deal. With the bonuses I think AP is the best bet. Stay Pat and get into the playoffs. Shockey is not trash. He's een impressive in camp and preseason so far. Could be a bounceback year if he can stay healthy.

I Give: AP/Donnie Avery/Ray Rice I Get: MJD/Steve Smith or I Give: AP I Get: MJD/and either Harvin, Hester or Berrian
start 3 WR and 2 RB with a Flex
roster with the first trade would be: my WR core would start then: Randy Moss, Greg Jennings, Steve Smith my RB core would start then: MJD, Pierre Thomas my Flex would start then: Fred Jackson/Marshawn Lynch (after 3 Game suspension) BN WR: Chris Chambers, Michael Crabtree, Nate Washington BN RB: Fred Jackson/Marshawn Lynch, Dominic Rhodes (who i may dump for a FA RB)
available RB: Ricky Williams, Jerrious Norwood, TJ Duckett, Buckhalter, Fargas, Jamaal Charles, Michael Bush, Kevin Faulk, Tashard Choice...
I'd have to go with trade offer no. 1.
As good as AP is, MJD is not far behind. Look at your league's scoring system and see how many points MJD scored compared to AP. I bet it's not too far off. Plus, you're also getting Steve Smith (a solid top 5 WR, pound-for-pound one of the toughest WRs out there) for 2 below average players in Ray Rice (3-man RBBC?) and Donnie Avery (lotta injuries in the preseason, no more Torry Holt to help take away defenders). Plus, you got an extra roster spot to pick up a sleeper off the waivers.
Not to be harsh, but I think the two of you are just wasting each other's time trying to be the one to hit a grand slam on this trade. The only reasonable offer I've seen was the suggestion of AP/Jennings for MJD/Johnson. And neither of you seems willing to take the downgrade at one spot to get the upgrade at the other. Make that offer and if he says no, stop negotiating and move on.
Also, I don't recall seeing if PPR was involved here. If it isn't, you don't need to make this trade in the first place because the values of MJD and Johnson are deflated without the catches.
