I personally prefer Brees and you are desperate for a QB.

I wouldnt do offer #3 at all. However, offer #2 is pretty good. That one addresses your need without creating as big a hole. Just remember Brees is almost a lock for 20+ points whereas dalton isnt.

Personally I liked the Bmarsh and Forte for Rice Shorts and Dalton. Not sure what Daltons schedule looks like but you upgrade at QB, RB and get a downgrade in WR but you have to beast top 5 WR s in Calvin and Reggie. Cecil is emerging as clear cut #1 WR option in that offense, anemic as it is, they have to throw to someone. Otherwise, is Nick Foles or Kapernick available? Tannehill cannot cut it.

Yes, Vick, Foles, Kapernick, Weeden and Ponder are available.

If you can get Brees get him and don't look back.

Personally I think you are trying to do too much with the bottom 2 trades. IMO Forte is comparable with Rice and Lynch so I don't think that is a move you need to make. If you could get one of those 2 with giving Charles, then I would be for it, but I doubt that would work.

I like doing a smaller deal and going after Palmer. They will be throwing the ball and have shown they can be productive. I would try and do that before Sunday, but if that is someones starter I doubt they will give him up with him facing the Saints.

Well, I played Tannehill today so I'm done with my QB this week.

Yeah I gotcha, but I meant if Palmer has a huge day against NO his owner will want more in return than if you did it prior to then.

So you think:

- BMarsh & Charles for Palmer, Lynch and Givens
is a better deal than:
- BMarsh & Forte for Palmer, Lynch and Givens

For your team yes I prefer that. Now will he accept? Hard to tell without seeing his roster, but I would guess no. Consistent RB's are hard to come by and Lynch is up there with the best. Marshal is a beast and I actually think dealing him now is not a bad idea. With Cutler injured I feel his value drops. If you can pull that trade off I think your team is set to go for it all.

Why do you like Forte over Charles?
