It's a non-ppr league and we start 2 RB's and 3 WR' Martin worth giving up since I don't have a clear RB2 right now? I would have an absolutely stacked WR corps if I did this but would I be cutting myself too thin with having to rely on F. Jackson or McGahee as my starting options at RB? My current team is:

QB: Romo, Freeman
RB: Rice, F. Jackson, McGahee, D. Martin, Ingram
WR: Fitz, Julio Jones, Djax, Malcolm Floyd, Randy Moss, Titus Young
TE: Pettigrew, Tamme

I actually really like the first trade for you. Nicks should be healthy by the start of the season and you potentially have 3 WR1s with upside players like Titus Young. If Skelton wins the QB battle, your WR core will be nasty with him, Julio breaking out, and Nicks.

I think if FJax can't play like last season, either McGahee or Ingram can emerge as a serviceable RB2, Ingram will get a lot of short yardage TDs while McGahee will face much less stacked boxes with Peyton instead of Tebow

I think I'd take the original deal too. Desean is a gamble, and while there is clear upside, you don't really know what you're getting with Martin. Nicks is a stud. I'd make the move.
