I would absolutely take the DMC/Hillis/Wayne side of the deal.

I prefer the McFadden side of the deal. Wayne is a sneaky WR2 this season, Hillis is a potential RB2, and I prefer McFadden to Johnson.

As a biased Raider fan I say take the deal. DMC is probably the biggest high risk-high reward player in the league but IF he can stay healthy dude is a beast.

I like the DMC side by a fair margin.

Lend a hand?

I think I would keep Johnson but the rest of the trade would probably offest any loss. You would still have DMC and Charles in start. I guess I talked myself into it. I would do the trade.

I don't even think it's close. I like McFadden over CJ, Wayne over Manningham and Hillis over Hunter. Slam dunk

Really? I agree with taking trade but I have CJ has #4 RB and DMC #6, nevermind. I am still in PPR mindset. Forgot his is non-ppr.

Anyways, still take the trade :)

DMC definitely has the upside..but I think CJ will have a solid, consistent year (not 2000 yards though). DMC will win you some games..but also can lose some too when he is out. I like the secondary pieces you got more too though.
