I wouldnt do that trade. Eli has been struggling as well and hasnt done all that much better than Fitzpatrick so i dont think the upgrade is large enough. You may get a couple of extra points a week but i think you thin out your team a little bit too much. Lynch still has his bye and he has a few tough matchups left this year, and Pierre Thomas isnt something you want to rely on.

Any way you pull of something more like Fitz/Lynch/Jennings for RG3 and one of his RBs?? I think the upgrade from Fitz to RG3 is big enough to sustain the drop off from Lynch to one of his guys. Jennings is a little pot sweetner that wont help you much for another few weeks anyways so i guess that part depends on your standings

What about Johnson/Rivers for Eli/Stevie Johnson? I put "Stevie Williams" in the original post...meant to be Stevie Johnson.

Your last trade offer won't work because he needs all of his WR's to start in his lineup and thus can't afford to give up any unless he gets one back in return. I would offer Fitzpatrick/CJ2K for FJax/Eli and see if he goes for that deal.
