I'm in a 12 team PPR league. I've been looking for a solid RB2 (Currently have Forte as RB1). I'm thinking of setting up a trade to pick up Doug Martin, I just read an article about his key offensive lineman Nicks going down. I think I can pick up Martin rather cheap. Here's what I'm proposing:

I offer:
Bears Defense (The other team desperately needs a solid D, & has Mendenhall on the bench)

I get:
Doug Martin

Is this trade insulting to the Martin owner??? Is it worth it for me to lose the bears, the best I could do is pick up the Browns D on waivers.

Or

I get:
Doug Martin
Ravens Defense

I offer:
Donald Brown
Bears Defense

Here's the article from Mathew Berry about Doug Martin

Running back: Doug Martin. "All-Preseason," I kept screaming from the mountain tops that the ESPN collective ranks were way too low on him and I personally loved him. And I still believe in his talent. But as we discussed on the podcast Wednesday morning, the Carl Nicks injury is a huge blow for Martin. Carl Nicks played every single snap at left guard for Tampa Bay this year. And as John Parolin from ESPN Stats & Information points out, Martin was much more effective when running behind him.

Left: 47 rushes, 210 yards, 12 first downs, 2 TD, 4.5 yards per rush.
Middle: 56 rushes, 249 yards, 10 first downs, 1 TD, 4.4 yards per rush.
Right: 26 rushes, 84 yards, 1 first down, 3.2 yards per rush.

Dude. Martin goes from a low-end No. 1 running back to a low-end No. 2. Crushing blow for Nicks, for Martin owners and for the Buccaneers.
