I'm guessing that is Greene as in Shonn Greene, even without knowing that I wouldn't do that deal unless you get something in return. Brady is a stud, but he won't average 420yds and 3TDs a week all year. On the flip side I really think that Rivers' average of 340-350yd is pretty close to where he should be this year.

The thing that concerns me is the 5 turnovers in 2 games so far. I really see that number coming back down a bit, really at this point he has 2 legit options, VJax and Gates, who are nice to have, but he needs a 3rd option to step up big time and open more passing lanes up. Once that happens I really see Rivers being all of what Brady is, if not more.

If this is a trade just because you like Brady tho, it's not THAT bad, but in terms of fantasy you have to leave emotions at the door. In this case unless you get something with Brady in return, then its not really a trade to help your squad, its just a trade to trade.

A big thanks to deluxe_247 for the sweet sig!
