I am higher than most (should I stop typing there???) on Ray Rice. I have him as my #1 RB in all formats. I thnk White is a star as well but downgrading to Holmes from White to get Rice is a deal I would make in a heartbeat.

I'm not a huge believer of Holmes, ....but the upgrade to Rice is just too much. I'd pull the trigger.

I actually agree with rice being the number 1 back. My major concern is tha my wr2 and wt3 are from the same team, a run oriented team at that. I think that's going to take away my only advan tage I have which is 2 potential top 12 wrs. Don't know if vjax by himself is enough to carry my wides but I feel with 2 stellar wides I can play mix and match at rb.

I have to agree with the other posters here. I don't usually like downgrading a position in trades, but if its downgrading a WR to get my hands on Ray Rice, I would do it.

I'd take the deal and run away smilling. Rice is a huge upgrade over Hillis, you are downgrading at wr, but not by that much. I think Rice will improve his numbers across the board with Leach leading the way for him. Good luck.
