really not that great of a deal, I would personally decline, Chris J is on a losing team that will be playing catch-up, he is apart of the passing game but isnt going to be posting close to the numbers MJD will, dont let his 50 fool you. Driver has been quite a bit better than Jennings and Westbrooke is a big baby who you MIGHT use 2 more times this year will his bad matchups, injurys, and him just sucking... just my opinion, I would decline
i would do the deal this would give you 3 studs at rb even though westy is quest every week and i think its clear rodgers is going to spread the ball around and not just look for jennings i would do it

Here's how I would rank that:
1. Small upgrade. Driver's been putting up much better numbers than GJ this year. Maybe that will change, but I haven't seen any evidence yet. 2. Huge downgrade. MJD is one of the best out there. CJ has really only had one monster game that's skewed his stats. I think Tenn will probably get a little better, but with VY taking over, it's not clear what will be going on with that offense. 3. Probably an upgrade, but there are still a lot of question marks hanging over Westy, even before the concussion. He's had one good game all year (and that came in Philly's worst offensive performance). He's over 30. McCoy is stalking him and could pull a Mendenhall. Yeah, he's still Westy, but you can't assume you're getting the '06 version.
I say don't make the trade. I have a strong bias against trading away mega-studs.
MJD has had multiple high-point week,s while 4.24's point total for the year is wildly skewed by one great week. Advantage- MJD
Driver is producing high, mostly due to the offensive line not giving Rodgers time to get the ball deep to Jennings. Recently, GB has adjusted by starting 2 TEs and chipping the with RB or keeping him in outright. Advantage- Driver for consistently, Jennings for upside.
Westbrook is a huge upgrade over Fargas.
The WR swap is a bit of a wildcard- some might not prefer to gamble that GB's o-line will get its act together. The key, to me, is whether the Fargas/Westbrook upgrade is worth the MJD/424 downgrade. I say it's not. Losing out on Jennings' potential explosiveness kills it, for me.
