I'm not sure you have the pieces. You most valuable trade chips in my opinion are:

1. Wes Welker
2. Steven Jackson
3. Marshawn Lynch
4. Eli Manning

The other owner is already strong at runningback so you will not be able to move Steven Jackson or Marshawn Lynch to him. Trading Wes Welker does not make sense if you are trying to improve at the WR position. A deal could possible be struck by pairing Eli Manning with one of your receivers for Cutler and Julio Jones. Something like Eli Manning and Brandon Lloyd (or Stevie Johnson) for Jay Cutler and Julio Jones might get considered.

However, I don't necessarily think you want to weaken yourself at the QB position in a 2 QB league.

I have to agree with LMack. You really dont have the pieces in place to make an offer on Julio. His value continues to rise and you would have to give up to much at this point to aquire him. You already have a top WR in Welker, so whats the point in trading him unless you think Jones is that much better. You have a good 1/2 punch at QB and certainly wouldnt trade one of those based on your situation. GL with whatever you decide.

Help with mine?
