Noooo, you're right don't do it. Even with the 3 WR spots, you're not horrible with Williams as your third and you have solid top-2. Not worth giving up Gore in my opinion, he's still a work horse, and you can get more if you package him and Williams for a top-7 receiver.

No way! keep your RB's because they are scarce. I would tell you to shop Brady or Manning. There is no reason for you to have them both when you can only start one. You've got to have QB points just piling up on your bench each week. Turn em into WR points you can use!

Denver's bye week has come and gone and their schedule is cake down the road especially towards the playoff weeks. See about shopping Brady. Obviously your WR options are limited to those on the teams who need QB's or are looking to upgrade at the position for a stretch run. Maybe a team who over-drafted at the WR position. Either way, Brady will fetch you a better quality WR than Gore and you get to keep all your RB's. Good luck!

I love the season Jones is having but agree that you can't value him as equal to Gore. I *will* say that I would be tempted to do this for Bush, who I think is only your 4th-best RB. Nice going on that RB depth.

I'm torn on the "shopping Brady" issue. I agree with the other guy that keeping Brady on your bench every week seems like a waste but I don't feel 100% confident Peyton is going to be healthy and excellent all year (I love his schedule going forward tho).

I think I'd look to trade Bush for the best WR you can get for him, which I think will be better than Jones. You'd still be strong at RB with Lynch, Gore, Morris and Jennings, and you'ld still have Brady/Manning you can use to fill a hole at the trade deadline if need be.

Good luck. Let us know what you end up doing.
