Thanks for the help.

Tough one. Either way you look at it, losing JC sucks. It seems that you are plenty stacked at WR and now really thin at RB. I would look for something involving a RB for WR straight up. Itd be nice to be able to hang on to Mathews and get another starting caliber RB. Maybe see if you can sell high on Miles. Not to say he is not a beast, but Dez will take some of that back upon his return. Good luck.

Thanks for the help. Mendy is in for a better stretch here, for sure. Matthews has looked good thus far, but he loses so much value to Tolbert that you never know when you'll get stuck for 80 yds and no TD from him. Redman has gotten more touches in Pitt, but I wouldn't be too worried, yet.

Henderson is the picture perfect sell high candidate though my question would be do you have anything short term for Miles Austin? If so I'd pull the trigger

yeah obviously this is more of a long term type of trade, because i lose devery who i would be starting in place of miles austin since he will prob miss a few games, however, i just dont trust devery long term

And rightfully so. Hendersons the same story every year -- great games if someones out, but when the whole team is healthy he's going to be VERY hit or miss. I say sell high and get a top notch runner like Mendy

Agreed. I can't trust anyone on NO. Someone is hitting for a HR, you just never know who - either Moore, Meachem, or Henderson. Matthews hasn't impressed at all, and Tolbert is still getting majority of carries. He's not a true #1 RB. I'd definitely pull the trigger on this one, get yourself a top #1 RB to replace JC, and you're not losing much.

the only issue I see is that Mendenhall really isnt a big PPR guy, he only had 23 receptions in 16 games last year! and he's only had 2 this year. I would try and find a good back that gets more receptions ... but if he is your best option, then I would try and package Henderson with either Cook or Miller and see if they'll bite on that. if not, then yea this aint a bad deal for ya.

best of luck ... and thanks for your help.

If you can pull off that trade, I would do it, but you'll probably need to part with one of your elite receivers.

Thanks for your help.

I say do it, the upgrade at RB is well worth it, and ur selling high on Henderson who is not trustworthy. You will need to find a short term answer off waivers if Austin misses time, but long term u will be in better shape....Thnaks for help with mine.

I would do that without thinking about it, but I don't think it will fly. Matthews and Henderson are not elite talents. Matthews wouldn't start most weeks, and loses major value to Tolbert, and Henderson would be a WR 3, and his role will diminish when Colston and Moore are healthy.
