So short story Colt Mccoy is my only QB on this 1-1 team. The wire has Campbel, Dalton, McNabb, and Alex Smith. It seems most other owners want my RB's. The deals that I have been offered are Orton for Mathews or Kolb for Mathews or Flacco for Mathews. Should I do any of those? If not what deal should I be trying to make.
Yahoo Standard scoring 12 man Head to Head League. We do have a flex spot WR/RB
1QB- Colt 3WR- Vincent Jackson, Brandon Lloyd, DBowe, Nate Washington, Danny Amendola 2RB- AP, PHillis, Fred Jackson, Ryan Mathews, McCluster, Scott 1TE- Winslow, Olsen 1K- Folk 1DEF- Patriots
so yes you definitely need to address the qb situation via trade asap. that said, i dont think any of those guys are the answer and even though you arent starting mathews hes worth more than those 3 gentlemen. i think you should go after cam newton or fitzpatrick since both of those guys were prob drafted as backups by teams that dont need to start them. see if you can move mathews for either of them, or even jackson if you have to. or find a struggling team with a lousy rb situation and offer like jackson or mathews for their starting qb - if they have a half decent backup they might bite. orton kolb and flacco are not viable solutions imo. id rather have any of them than colt but i think you need to look for a more permanent solution. youve got great depth at rb and should move an rb for a qb, just dont get lowballed with the 3 dudes u mentioned. just think, if a roto draft were to happen today, mathews would prob go in the late 3rd or 4th round, those 3 qbs would be sitting around in the 8th round - bad value to trade RM for them straight up. good luck brah and thx again
Can't agree more. Matthews should bring more value than the guys you're mentioning, I'd even hold out till after this week as Matthews should have another huge day and Tolbert is starting to take a back seat. Good luck.

This idea was mentioned above and I like it. If HASSELBACK is available on the waiver wire I would consider grabbing him. He's better than any of those other guys.
I would also NOT trade Mathews. I WOULD trade Hillis as I feel a drop off coming and now there is word he may be dinged up. He still has massive trade potential and I agree you should target someone with two quality QBs who could part with a stud for Hillis.
Agree with whomever said Flacco, Orton and Kolb are not worthy of Mathews. Tolbert is injured and playing badly when healthy so there is potential for him to blow up. None of those QBs have that sort of upside IMHO.
I would use Hillis or maybe FJax to target Romo. Fitzpatrick makes me a little nervous with a now banged up S Johnson and a fade down the stretch last year in nast Buffalo weather.
Ideally someone has Stafford as a back up and you could trade Hillis or FJax for him.
Otherwise I'd see about playing the WW and trading one of your RBs for a STUD WR. Take a look at defenses like Jacksonville and (I think) the Cowboys who suck against the pass and grab QBs that play them. Use Hillis to grab L Fitzgerald or the like and strengthen your team in other areas. It seems to me that QB - especially this year - is an area where you can play the waiver wire and get by as long as the rest of you team is solid.
