I need some help at RB. It wasn't a strong spot to start and then I lost Charles. I was able to hold it together last week and pull out a win, but I don't think I can smoke and mirrors my way to too many more wins with this RB group. I think this is the only team that is willing to make me a decent trade. I did get a Gore for Jennings offer but I don't think that will help me and that team isn't willing to part with McFadden or Rice. Should I trade White for Bradshaw?
My team: QB - Rodgers RB: D.Thomas, Sproles WR: White, Jennings TE: Finley RB/WR/TE: N.Washington DEF: TB K: Hanson BN: D. Nelson, Tate, Wells, Boldin, Manningham, Ryan
Other team: QB - Stafford RB: McCoy, Forte WR: A.Johnson, Moore TE: Daniels RB/WR/TE: Mathews DEF: NO K: Lindell BN: F.Davis, Schaub, Bradshaw, Bowe, S.Johnson, F.Jones
Even though your RBs are not good this is too big of a value difference to make the trade. Roddy, while struggling right now is a top 5 WR. I think you should at least get a back like Mendy for him in return. good luck!

No. Thomas and Sproles will be getting close to the same amount as Bradshaw. White finally seems to get started as well. Keep White for now, if he plays a good game next week, then he will be back as a top receiver, and suddenly the people with the top RBs will start paying attention.

Dont get Gore, he aint worth it.
Completely agree, Roddy is worth WAY more then Bradshaw. If you really need a RB that bad, which I think you do since you're starting Sproles and Beanie has been banged up, wait one more week and Roddy's trade value should greatly increase. Heck maybe Beanie will even come back healthy and you will be okay with him and Daniel Thomas as your RB's.
Hold on to Jennings. But it wouldn't be a huge loss if you traded Jennings instead. And while I don't think expecting a back like McCoy in exchange is logical, I think receiving a back like Mendenhall, or like you asked Forte (who I love this year) would be perfectly acceptable and beneficial.
