That's a blockbuster trade indeed, I need to see your team first.

I assume you are trash at RB. I love all 3 players he's giving you and I'm high on Cutler so I most likely take that trade unless there's some crazy rule I don't know about (Like incredibly assinine QB scoring and really low RB scoring)

going from Stafford to Cutler hurts but wow you get a great RB in return with McFadden. He is definitely the blue chipper in that trade. also improving in TE as well. Who else do you have for running back? If you dont have a lot of depth there I say go for it, but losing Stafford hurts.

I'm going to say to do it. The biggest question here is Stafford vs. Cutler and I don't believe the gap in performance is going to be nearly as large as their ADPs reflect. I'd only suggest that you work the WW after the trade and scoop up some potential sleeper WRs because you may end being a bit thin.

Your QB2 is gonna stink after this trade but with Mcfadden at RB2, Donald Brown at Flex, DHB and Marshall at WR, Cutler at QB, Graham at TE, you are going to win a shit-ton of games. Little in there to fill bye weeks and Olsen is a really good TE2, then you have the NE backfield/Spiller for the hell of it to fill byes/injuries at RB/FLEX. Love this trade for you.

I'd try to shop the NE backfield or CJ Spiller for a QB2, then you are set across the board. If it is standard scoring I'm less worried about the dropoff at WR, but the dropoff is worth it to get Graham, he makes up for it.

Yeah the plan is to try and shop the NE back field and DHB to try and pick up a better WR. I want to hang on to Spiller because I have a feeling he might come in handy come playoff time. Or if Jackson goes down
