I would stay put. You dont have the WR depth to go thru with the trade. I dont think the downgrade from Gordon to Hilton is worth the upgrade at QB. Anyway you can make this a 4 player deal and ask for a WR to go along with Staff?

I might consider that since I dont trust Eli & Alex at all. At least Stafford is a top 5 or 6 QB week in and week out and you don't need a backup except for your bye week. Josh Gordon will be good, but I'd think his targets are closer to 10, maybe 12 if the Browns have no other options & are always behind... but this past week is easily going to be his high point... so selling high is a good idea.

I would stand pat. Eli is normally a solid fantasy qb and his game will come back around. I would drop Alex smith like a bad cold. The guy can play real football but when it comes to fantasy he is a bust. He's a game manager who doesn't take chances and although he has a great record his stats are garbage.

Please help with mine

I stick with what you have. You're not deep enough at WR and despite enough at QB for this deal, IMO. If you can make it a 4 player deal than maybe but 1 for 1, no way...

I wouldn't make the trade. I think Eli will come around and Gordon had a fantastic game (but like someone said-may be a sell high situation).

Tempting but no, keep Gordon. Stafford looks real good this year but if you re-drafted today, would you take him over Gordon? Despite the potential of a one-year suspension, Gordon is sick and could finish in top 6 in WR's for Avg/game ESPECIALLY if he's traded to the Lions or even the Titans. You don't have any backup WR's besides Hilton and Hilton though good is hit or miss and is similar to Gordon last year.

If you can get another WR and indeed make it a 4-player then maybe. But I love the idea of riding out Gordon.

Help please:
