I would not do it. Austin is very strong. You are getting Wallace, who is not as valuable in PPR. Thomas is a PPR beast. Crabtree is garbage. But you have Ford on your bench and steve smith, who will be back around week 4 or so and with Maclin not himself will do very well. I also LOVE Moore...he could be this year's Mike Wallace.

Even though it hurts me to say this while sitting here in my 49ers t-shirt, I would get rid of Crabtree. I think that Austin is the best wr in this group, but you will get two quality wr's in return. I think that Wallace will continue to grow in Pitt and his numbers should increase , Thomas is a bit of a wild card. With no Simms-Walker he is now the #1, so can he handle that? I'd say yes, and I'd do this deal. Good luck.

I would do it. I don't see a big drop off from Austin to Wallace. Wallace could definitely outscore Austin too. But Thomas is a big upgrade from Crabtree. The fact that Crabtree is injured and that he has even a worse QB throwing to him makes me want Thomas a lot more. Plus with Smith hurt, Maclin not guaranteed to suit up or be effective for week 1, I'd hate to have to see you have Simpson and/or Ford in there week 1.
