See if he'll trade him for Roy Helu and Kenny Britt. I highly doubt he bites on that but it'd be my opening offer, a lot of people are still high on Helu even though he's like 3rd on the depth chart now or something, idk you can't predict shanihanigans. I expect a suspension for Kenny Britt and he's coming off 3 knee surgeries in the last year, but he has name value too.

If he's intrigued but wants more, you can throw a stud IDP in there as the WW always emerges with dozens of them during the season. I'd try not to move your 2 QBs and 2 top RBs or 2 top WRs because it will kill your depth (unless you can give Lynch straight up). Maybe if we saw his roster we could do a 2 for 2 type of deal, idk.

Seeing his roster, I don't think he does any of these deals unless you're selling at QB IMO. His weakest position other than QB is RB with Murray and a bunch of handcuffs (with plenty of their own risks), and I don't see him taking any kind of here's-two-crappy/risky-options-for-your-best-player deals. Now if you came offering Eli and a piece, then he might be interested. I mean, I'm all for throwing some spitballs and seeing if they stick, but don't be surprised in the least if he politely (at best) declines any such offer for Murray.

Murray is his ONLY running back of value, right now. You will have to give him Eli and Helu, or an even better running back.
