I do not think that Martin is a sell high candidate. He should be a nice RB2 with him getting the majority of carries in Tampa Bay. I would drop Tamme for Ryan Williams.

i like percy this year. could be as good as nelson as i think he will have a hard time repeating. i also like doug martin, he should have every chance to be a stud rb2 that could be rb1 with a little luck. i would stay put.

You lose at RB to gain at WR, which is your team strength IMHO. So no, I would hold onto Martin.

Agree on dropping Tamme for Ryan Williams. ;-D

I would do it. Ill admit I might not know as much as some others about Martin, however you are getting a proven guy on one of the best offenses in the game with sproles. Granted hes much better in ppr leagues.

Harvin is also better in ppr leagues where jordy suffers in ppr. 68 catches last year. A lot think jordy is going to have a better year than Jennings this year. I would probe rather have harvin but its very close

I thin what does it for me is the upgrade at te. Finley is stupid talented. If he ever plays up to his potential he could put up huge numbers.

I like the fact that you are getting one saint and two packers. And getting rid of a titan, buc, and viking.

I could argue the other way too. Just playing devils advocate.

I could prob get the same three guys in return if I give up Trent, Cook, and Mendy rather than Harvin, Martin, and Mendy. Thoughts on that?

hell no. Not even sure you are upgrading wr here. Martin is a stud and Cook is another with alot of upside. No chance i would think about it unless its ppr.
