Yuk, yuk, yuk. It's not even close. Benson is an ok RB, but he will miss a game soon thanks to suspension and isn't in the same stratosphere as Peterson in terms of value. Palmer was almost definitely just added off the WW and has a lot of question marks surrounding him. If you are going to trade Peterson, you need to get multiple big names back. Hold on the Pete and enjoy the best RB in the game.

Well, if you are in a league that sets next years draft order by your record this year, and you want the #1 pick so you can get AP again, then by all means make the trade. If you want to win this year, you tell that guy to pound sand.

Pass. 1 million times pass. If that were Rodgers and Forte/McCoy/Rice coming to you, that is more legit offer for a #1 pick.

Are you joking around? Im serious im not being an ass im just wondering. A retired QB and a jail bound, beat up, plodding, Ced Benson for what most would say is the best running back in football? I would be surprised if either Benson or Palmer even are starters in most leagues..

Hahaha, not sure what you meant by 'know nothing about these players'...I would have assumed you would have done some research on your own. But hey, I get it. Real life concerns trumps every time.

So my advice is HELL NO. And seriously, you shouldn't consider that player a serious trading partner.

Thanks everyone for the advice. As for being serious, yes I am. This is my first year following football and playing FF. Got pulled in by some friends. I usually spend at least an hour a day researching trying to keep up with everyone but it's a lot to take in. =\
