Yeah Stafford is a perfect QB to go after.

Cam Newton is an awesome fantasy QB and I think it'll take a while for people to turn over a new leaf on him. I say do it. QBs are worth a lot more than WRs anyway.

I think I would hold on to AJ........your not going to get alot for him with no news yet on the injury and even if he misses 3 or 4 weeks you have the depth to cover the loss. There are not many receivers like AJ in fantasy land and you might be sorry to let him go for Cam who I think Defenses will adjust to and his numbers will drop.

Alright....I held off on the trade. He just came back to me with Newton and Bowe? I know Bowe is no replacement for AJ, but he would start on my team and It would take care of my QB issue. Does this change things?

Yes, by a lot actually

I would take this, Bowe starting coupled with the fact that any TD, passing or not, is 6 pts (this is your scoring system based from what i read right?), I assume Cam would be your starting QB.

I would make this trade- although i forgot to look who your current QB was, but not to many QB's would make this a no nd I'm assuming if you had one of them you wouldnt consider this trade anyways
10 team standard- passing TD's = 6pts

Ya I feel as though you can get one of the top-gun reliable qbs for the price of dre johnson, which is why I would not make this trade

And plus Newton has to slow down at some point, doesn't he?
At least I hope so as an Atlanta fan :-)
