(QB) Matt Schaub (HOU) OR (QB) Jay Cutler (CHI)
(RB) Monte Ball (DEN)

I guess it depends on your roster, but to me, quantity doesnt equal quality. You're giving up by far the best player in the deal, and you'd have to clear 3 spots off your roster to do this.. I wouldnt do this.

help with mine?

If it depends on my roster check it out...it's listed below in my signature. If I did this trade I would drop Rashad Jennings, Isaiah Pead, & James Starks.

Then no, I wouldn't do that trade, again quantity doesn't mean quality. You'll get Ball who, from what I saw, was behind Moreno and Hillman, a QB you won't use, and a pair of Wr's who might be a little better then your wr2. So no, I wouldn't touch this trade, if I'm giving foster I better be getting something that actually improves my team, not makes it worse.

I'd pass on this deal. For a 18 team league your team is pretty solid. Stick with your team, 4 average players won't make up for the one stud in Foster. You would have good depth on your team, but I'd pass. Good luck.

Agree with the above: you have a solid group and this does nothing but hurt your team overall.

You would be the laughingstock of your league if you made this trade. Don't do it... it's not even close..

Yeah it's a 18-teamer and depth is important... but c'mon! Four Honda Civics do not equal a Bentley. Tell him to kick rocks offering such a shit deal.

I wouldn't do it. I don't really see this trade helping your team at all.

Definitely not. You're trading reliable starting points for bench/iffy starting points. My general rule of thumb is to try and end up with the best player in a deal, or at least end up with more points in my starting roster than I otherwise would. Don't worry about depth, worry about quality.

Help: opinion on Tate vs. Boldin?
