Let's examine this...

FIRST HALF OF THE TRADE
So, you are getting a slight upgrade at your RB1 with this trade. That's how impressive Richardson has been this year: he's just a hair lower than Ray Rice in fantasy value. What he MAY be doing is offering you this trade because the difference in each player's schedule. 3 out of the next 4 weeks Rice has bad match-ups (including playoff weeks), and the 4th is average. Of course, he's still unbenchable, but still. On the other hand, Trent's next 4 weeks are 2 favorable, one average, and one unfavorable.That makes it even less of an upgrade at RB1 for you. Keep that in mind.

SECOND HALF OF THE TRADE
You're taking a major hit at your flex spot. Either taking Demaryius out for Leshoure or Percy Harvin is a significant downgrade. Percy is out this week, and it's not easy to predict his value when he returns, especially given the shaky nature of Christian Ponder's second-half of this season. He'll likely produce, but not Demaryius Thomas-level production. Leshoure has had the hot hand as of late, but I can't trust his consistency moving forward, especially with the ankle issue this week. That's a good side note: you are trading Peyton Manning's favorite target for two hurt guys. A quick look at their schedules for a double-check: Thomas has 2 favorable match-ups and 2 average. Percy has one bad and two average (this week would have been favorable, but he's not playing). Mikel Leshoure (not "Mikle") has 4 average match-ups. Unless you consider Leshoure an upgrade from Thomas, this isn't looking so hot.

OVERALL
This trade leaves your lineup significantly weaker. And just think - he's getting Demaryius Thomas (#5 WR overall) and Trent Richardson (#5 RB overall). He's drooling at this deal. This is a "Make" deal for him, a "break" deal for you, imho. I would absolutely not go for this. I'd suggest a counter, but I think you may have accidentally listed your team twice, instead of his and yours.

Stay strong; you have a solid line-up. I mean, when Demaryius Thomas is your flex, you're doing PRETTY great. (Note my jealousy :-D )

I wouldn't do it. Your lineup as it is is pretty solid. :-)

Wait, do you mean you gave him the trade with Jackson instead of Thomas? You made the deal MORE favorable for him? Or do you mean VJax was on his team, not yours? I'm confused. Please explain.
