I think Austin is in for a big year. Before Romo got injured last year, Austin was lighting it up and Dez was struggling. After the injury, it completely reversed. Romo is back, and Austin is going to have a great year.

Greene hasn't proven he can put up consistent fantasy points. He was a big disappointment last year.

I think that a Austin/Williams combination is going to yield you more points than a S.Johnson/Green combination is going to get you.

I would stand pat or look to give up your keeper value and trade M.Williams or S.Johnson for Green.

I agree with most of this. I think Austin is worth more than Greene, even in a reduced PPR league. And though Greene is probably going to be better than Williams, I don't think it's worth making this trade. If I understand things correctly, you'll be going from this:

WR-White
WR-Austin
WR-Jennings
RB-Williams
RB-Blount
W/R-Williams (TB)

to this:

WR-White
WR-Jennings
WR-Williams (TB)
RB-Greene
RB-Blount
W/R-Williams/Moreno/Johnson/Knox

in a PPR league! Ugh. I don't like it.

I think ur alright actually. Im a carolina fan and i think Deangelo will have a big year. You need to remember that they will be running the same offense that made LT a fantasy stud for years. Lots of swing passes. I would stand pat with ur wrs and rbs. Wrs get hurt all the time. If you trade austin you lose a quality piece of your team. Plus is like Greene but he hasn't shown a whole lot the last couple of years. Trading a proven producer for someone who hasnt shown what he can do is an ill advised move.

Thanks for help on mine. I am not huge fan of Shonn Greene really at all. I think Miles is way to good of a player to give up for Shonn Greene IMO.

Do not do this trade. I'd much rather have Miles Austin than Shonn Greene, no matter how bad I needed a RB

Thanks for the help on mine. I would wait and see what happens with Williams. If he stays healthy, he should be fine. Greene is not a sure enough of a player to make that deal just yet.
12 Team League. We start 2 QBs and get .5 PPR, otherwise standard scoring
QBs: Stafford, Fitzpatrick, Collins
RBs: Charles, Mendenhall, Best, Starks, Carter, Karim
WRs: D. Jackson, Marshall, S. Smith, Green,
TE: Hernandez, Cook

I would not do this trade. You are stacked at WR. Try and see if who ever has Aaron Rodgers and offer a trade with Greg Jennings and they might bite for his QB/WR combo. Maybe they have better RB depth. You can afford to do a trade like that to upgrade the RB. Try different combos but Austin for Greene not worth it, you can do way better.

Help me out ^^
