I would absolutely not do this, Julio jones is in one of the most explosive offenses in the league, and while reggie wayne is a beast the te upgrade is not big enough.

No No No. Wayne is old and hasn't been particularly consistent, and rookies are still rookies.
Julio is a beast.

Help with mine?

i actually favor R.Wayne more than JJ simply because JJ splite with White and Wayne get most of the target from Luck
but i am probably the minority here, however, if i were you, i will take it.

keep in mind, Rivers is not very consistent this season and may hurt Gate's production.

I would accept only because JJ has such a stud Offense (white and gonzalez) any of those guys can blow any given week. Colts are more limited...if you saw last week, the colts struggled against the Jets...maybe their worst game this entire season and Wayne still had 5 catches for 80+ yds. He has done that or better all year! JJ has not been this consistent, he may have more upside for a game here or there but as far as consistency...I like Wayne. Dont believe me...compare the stats...

Wayne
Week 1 9 rec/ 135 yds
Week 2 6 rec/ 71 yds 1TD
Week 3 8 rec/ 88 yds
Week 4 Bye
Week 5 13 rec/ 212 yds 1TD
Week 6 5 rec/ 87 yds


JJ
Week 1 6 rec / 108 yds and 2 TD
Week 2 4 rec / 14 yds and
Week 3 5 rec / 67yds and 1 TD
Week 4 1 rec / 30 yds and
Week 5 10 rec / 94 yds and 1 TD
Week 6 4 rec / 63 yds and

You're upgrading at both positions.. PPR makes Wayne better. Do it.

Yeah, unfortunately, I think you've got to take this trade. Gates had a big game and will probably go back to being inconsistent-Rivers security blanket and will get more redzone looks. Stafford can't seem to get the ball to anyone, let alone Pettigrew. Wayne is the more consistent wide receiver (though he has to contend with Donnie Avery who is getting A LOT of looks; still Avery is not Roddy and Leshoure is no Turner/Rodgers.)

Jones gets you the big weeks, but Wayne seems to be the more consistent player.
Gates's potential for the rest of the season far exceeds Pettigrew's.

I think you've gotta take this trade. (Assuming this league is not a keeper league, because that would completely change my answer, but as you didn't mention that, take this trade.)
