With MJD, Chris Johnson, and Grant, you're pretty stacked at RB even without Sproles. I don't like your WR core at all. If you can move Sproles for a WR2, I'd seize that opportunity. Otherwise, try and package Grant and Royal/Edwards/Bryant away for either 2 WR1s or at least one WR1 and a WR2. For your WR1, target at least one stud performer, because you'd be giving up a stud, like VJax, Colston, Andre Johnson, Reggie Wayne, etc. For your WR2, I'd try and sneak in slow, but surely bounce-back players like Roddy White, Greg Jennings, or Calvin Johnson. If your league mates don't fall for that, your WR2 list might look like Desean Jackson, Donald Driver, Cotchery, Bowe, etc. Some names to stay away from when you're dealing RBs possessing the caliber you own - Housh, Roy Williams, T.O., Fitz (mainly b/c of Boldin's presence). These guys entered the season as WR1-2s, but unreliable play thus far has really hindered their value. There's no need to acquire such risk unless you're dealing Sproles. If you are dealing Grant/MJD/CJ24, you should net SOLID, no-risk return.

Thanks for your help.
I own Colston, and I would reject that trade outright. If you can swing it, you're a master of negotiations. Sproles has been good, but he's still just the handcuff to LT.
Not sure I agree in this league. Sproles has produced just as much (55 points) as Johnson and MJD with the return yardage. Straight up beast considering I got him in the last round of the draft. This means he'll never put up a goose egg, which carries some value.
