I would ask myself, "Come bye weeks or say one of your starts in Martin or Murray gets hurt, do you feel comfortable with backing them up with A. Morris?" Alfred Morris isn't bad and it is dead set that he is starter, and I think Shanahan probably has something great to look forward to in him, so time will tell. But if it was to tell by Week 3, let's hope he lives up to Murray and Martin. I think Ridley is nice to have as a backup, but damn, Graham will get you the points week in and week out. I had him last year, and he's one of the main reasons I finished in 2nd. I don't think Gates will live up to Graham's expectations in any game really this year, or the next, and so on. You have Fleener as well, and many sense good things for him as Luck and Fleener have great chemistry coming from Stanford and already in the NFL; and Graham and Fleener are also much younger then Gates, and so far not as injury prone.

I'd say go for it. Jimmy Graham can singlehandedly win weeks for you. (You can't say that for any other TE besides Gronk) Plus although Ridley is solid, I think week 1 will be his best game of the season.

i'd do it. you've got plenty of solid RBs. might as well upgrade. i think gates is on a downhill slide.

I would do it. If I was the other owner I am not sure if I would though. I think Gates is on his last leg of being an above average TE.

Do it. Your team is pretty stacked at RB, so you can afford to give up Ridley. And I think Graham (and Gronk) is wayyyyy ahead of the rest of the TEs this year. Go for it.
