I think this trade hinges on whether or not you think D.Richardson will become a decent starter in STL. Right now it looks like it'll be a RBBC with DRich & Pead, but that could change if STL drafts a RB. I don't know many people that are sold on DRich becoming a full-time starter. CAR renegotiated J.Stewart's contract in late January, so it looks like he'll finally get the chance to start. This makes D.Williams either a handcuff or there are some talks (like on rotoworld) that CAR might even cut him after June 1st:

Plus D.Williams will be 30 this year, so I don't think he has much value either way. R.Bush just turned 28, but I think he could explode over the next couple of years on the pass happy offense in DET....especially in a PPR league. So the only way I wouldn't do this trade was if i felt that DRich was going to be the starter in STL for a while. Like most, I have my doubts, so I think I'd do this trade for what looks like a "sure thing" with R.Bush in DET. You only move 3 spots down in the 1st this year, and I don't think that's a big deal. Good luck! ;-D

I'm actually offering the trade at the moment... the team has AP as the other starting back, so I thought mabe a 2 for 1 plus a slightly upgraded pick would help me land Bush. We play with IDP in this league, so the team could probably get one of the top RBs from the rookie class as well. Williams is older, yes, but he still gets a his fair share of touches. If 23 year old Richardson pans out he'll be a solid option for years in a run first offense.

The owner says the trade is "under consideration" at this point. I have Foster and Gore as my primary backs, with D rich/williams/p thomas rotating in at a flex spot. I don't mind the 2 for 1 and downgraded draft pick if I have 3 safe backs on the roster to go with my 2 stud receivers (Marshall & D Thomas).

I think it's a pretty fair trade offer... But I'm not accepting if I am the other owner. I think it's a nice starting point for negotiations.
