Alright, in my Manhattan League (listed below) I have a guy wanting to trade me his Ray Rice + Colston for my Hillis + Percy. Tough call. At first I was drooling over getting Ray Rice, but we all know he's been less than stellar thus far.
Thoughts/opinions? Need to know ASAP, before the deal is off the table.

**************************** Manhattan League (10 teams, Y! Std Scoring) QB's (2): Peyton, McNabb, Bradford WR's (2): Calvin, Driver, Floyd, Harvin RB's (2): Gore, Hillis, Jammal, Moreno, Cedric TE's (1): Cooley, Miller W/R/T (1) K (1): Rackers D/ST (1): San Diego (usually drop/add for best matchup)
I actually prefer to disagree. Rice's games weren't all THAT tough, and Colston (granted he should be a superstar with Brees) hasn't shown much. Hillis has shown that he can get work done against tough D's and Harvin is going to benefit with Moss on the Vikings. Moss pulling double coverage, Harvin is going to be in the slot like Welker. When Sidney Rice comes back, assuming he's healthy and playable, look to Harvin to put up some numbers.
I'd probably make the deal. Rice should be a premier back and I think he'll still get there again this season. People are selling low on him too quickly IMHO. I'm just not sold on Hillis despite great numbers so far. And I take Colston over Harvin every day of the week.
Don't do it. Rice has struggled, those tough match-ups he torched last season. Boldin has hurt Rice more than anyone has anticipated. What do you get when you take away rices receiving yards? I average RB that doesnt score. (Magahee) Hillis is a beast.
S. Rice WILL NOT be back in week 7 or 8. He is still on crutches for goodness sake. Moss will take the heat of Harvin, allowing him to excell. Colston's situation will not change IMO. He may have 1 or 2 big games son, but he wont be consistent.
