It looks like you are starting the right people. As far as trades you just have to find a weakness in someone else's team and try to sell them someone you have. Usually you do this by making their weakness seem even weaker than it actually is. You can probably afford to package a couple of your worse players for one really good one on someone else's team.

RB Maurice Jones-Drew

You seem to have the idea down pretty well. The only bit of advice I have is to. try and replace Lance Moore. Breed loves to spread the ball around a lot. Which means fewer receptions for each receiver. On top of that, Brees top targets are Jimmy Graham and Darren Sproles, making most of the saints receivers near useless. Try to find a receiver in a smaller corps. Sanzenbacher is a nice replacement from the bench.

I did find someone in my leauge that is kinda weak in QB, the thing is, he offered me Dwane Bowe for Brady. I have no problem giving up Brady and using Cam as my starter and Kolb as my Backup.
I was thinking, perhaps a counter Brady for Nicks and Dwane Bowe or Cam and Doug Baldwin or just Cam and Lance for Marshall and Nicks. I don't know lol I'm glad I cut Devery Henderson though last week.
I must say this is taxing on the mind but I'm having alot of fun with it. Thanks again everyone for the help and insights.

Lineup of the person wanting to trade
Josh Freeman
(TB - QB)

Hakeem Nicks
(NYG - WR)

James Jones
(GB - WR)

Brandon Marshall
(Mia - WR)

Adrian Peterson
(Min - RB)

Steven Jackson
(StL - RB)

Benjamin Watson
(Cle - TE)

His Bench
Dwayne Bowe
(KC - WR)

Michael Bush
(Oak - RB)

Kellen Winslow

Reggie Bush
(Mia - RB)

Carnell Williams
(StL - RB)

Jacoby Jones
(Hou - WR)

Preston Parker
(TB - WR)

Edit: I guess the other question is....if I nabbed Nicks could that be disastrous with him and Cruz going toe to toe, would it be in my better interest to try spreading the butter a little thicker by picking up Marshall and Bowe (despite I can't play bowe this week due to bye) lol kk I'm done, hope this all made sense and thanks again) After this post I'm pretty sure what I want to due but a little reassuring input will most defiantly help

First off, I have yet to even finish your most recent post. I wouldn't trade Brady at all. Sure with Cam sky is the limit, but whats to say he wont crash back to earth on any given week? Brady is like a first class plane ride at 80000 feet. Smooth and consistent. On top of that, I's say he's worth much more than both of those players combined. I'll edit soon once I finish reading.

Ok, now that I've read. I'd say trade Cam. Maybe you could send Cam and (somebody minor) for Nicks and B Marsh. That is if your lucky. I'd think you could get 2 for your money with Cam, even if they both aren't top wideouts, as long as one of em is.
