I say No, You already have good RB's but lack in WR's, if you give up nelson you really don't anyone worth starting for your #2 WR.

I say roll with it. You get Rice, and that is big. If you do, get Jackie Battle to protect you from Mathews.

I say go for it. Rice/Foster/Mathews is one heck of a combo at RB1/RB2/Flex in a PPR league. Does leave you short at WR2, unless Maclin gets going again from this hip injury. You also can take the sure fire 8-10 pts for Gibson with Amendola out, so you arent dead in the water at WR2 just shaky.

I would take the deal though, and thanks for help on mine.

I wouldn't do it because like people said before you're already stacked at RB. Ya Ray Rice is obviously a beast along with being a PPR machine, but Ridley is still putting up almost the same amount of points as he is. PLUS you lose Jordy's points and will slack to make up those points with your bench receivers. Basically Rice can't make up for the point differential you'll lose by losing Jordy and Ridley. Ridley isn't going to lose many carries, and will remain their main back, unless injured obviously.

DO IT!

RB's win championships, not WR's.

Maclin is an ok fill-in but you may be able to use some of your depth to get a decent WR to fill the gap.

I'd do it. 3 stud RB's will get you far. Especially since come fantasy playoff time, Arian Foster might not play as much since the Texans should have that division early.

Pull the trigger. This is huge. Ray Rice is a top 3 back easy. Jordy Nelson is awesome, but Aaron Rodgers spreads the ball around so much that there is no guarantee.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=18&t=525512
