I don't know what these other jokers are talking about.

You have the potential to have both CJ2K, Arian Foster, and Michael Turner as your RBs. What the heck are you waiting for? When Foster is back to health and CJ2K regains his footing, this would be the team I'd be terrified to go up against.

Foster will be back and he will destroy opposing teams even IF Tate steals some carriers.

Hightower plays for Washington. Shanahan coaches Washington. Helu will end up in the mix. It's inevitable. McGahee will not continue to get as many touches as he is once Moreno is back. Willis will go back to short yardage, 3rd down, and goalline situations. Not to mention.... he wouldn't start over CJ2K, Turner, or Blount on your roster anyways. You're likely going to start VJax and Colston(once he's back) and having Santana Moss and Burleson as your backups is awesome.

There's no question in my mind that anyone that wouldn't accept this trade has no business playing fantasy sports.

Do it and do it now!

Help with mine?

its tough, Im in a very similar situation where Im being offered Foster but I would be giving up a good RB as well!

anyways, I think its a good deal for you though cause I can only see Hightower going downhill from here, last week he was already complaining that he was fatigued ... in week 2! WTF?!?!

Go for it and Best of luck!

I would do this in a heartbeat. Foster could be very good when he gets back.
Yay for Offensive Coordinators!!!

I would accept this trade, since you have enough RB depth to handle putting Foster on your bench until he is fully healthy.

The Foster owner is 0-2 and has no RB depth. He wants immediate starters, so he offered me:
His Foster+Burleson for my Hightower+McGahee

My RBs/WRs are:
RB: CJ2K*, Turner* Blount* (Hightower, McGahee, Helu, Carter)
WR: VJax*, SMoss* (Colston, JNelson, JuJones, DNelson)

The trade would kill my depth until Foster gets back, but then (assuming he gets a full load), my team should be sweet.

Leave a link.


This is a high risk high reward deal. McGahee and hightower may lose their status but may be not. You should stress the fact that both are starters while foster may lose his starter status and try to see if you can get Foster with hightower and helu.

Thanks for the help.
