All players are starters on both teams. I think it's a reasonable even trade. Your opinions greatly appreciated.

He gives me:

Josh Freeman (TB - QB)
Adrian Peterson (Min - RB)
Miles Austin (Dal - WR)

I give him:

Ben Roethlisberger (Pit - QB)
Reggie Wayne (Ind - WR)
Chris Johnson (Ten - RB)

Here's my team currently:

Ben Roethlisberger (Pit - QB)
Mark Sanchez (NYJ - QB)
Vincent Jackson (SD - WR)
Reggie Wayne (Ind - WR)
Chad Ochocinco (NE - WR)
Donald Driver (GB - WR)
Chris Johnson (Ten - RB)
Ryan Grant (GB - RB)
Tim Hightower (Was - RB)
Stevan Ridley (NE - RB)
Tashard Choice (Dal - RB)
Tony Gonzalez (Atl - TE)
Greg Olsen (Car - TE)

Pretty even trade. I don't think I would do it though due to the risk at your QB position.

While you will get a little bit of a bump in both RB and WR, you are taking a pretty big chance at QB. Big Ben is a low end QB1, but has proven he can do it year in and year out. Not much risk and you know what you are going to get. Freeman is a bit of a gamble. He played well last year and has promise and could give you a good year, but you are taking a chance with him. I think his top end if he has a good year will be that of equaling Big Ben. If he struggles, your bench QB (Sanchez) isn't going to carry you. So I am not sure that the bump that you will get at RB and WR will out weigh the risk you are taking at QB.

I think it's reasonable.

You downgrade at QB a bit but upgrade at WR and a small bump at RB. I like your side a little better.
