I wouldn't do it. You're in great shape at receiver even with Julio going down. I'm not convinced Fitz is a better option than DJax, Garcon, or Gordon this year. Palmer is just torpedoing his value, which is a real bummer because lots of folks (*raises hand*) thought Palmer air it out a ton and make Fitz a true WR1 again. I think taking this trade would force you into a lot of "well, he IS Larry Fitzgerald, better start him" situations when Fitz ought to be on your bench. The downgrade from Gonzo to Rudolph is pretty steep, so you definitely lose that aspect of the deal. IMO, just drop Julio for a streamer TE this weekend, then plug Gonzo back in next week after his bye. Stand pat.

Hope that helps. Here's mine: http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=541462

Exactly this. I traded Tony G earlier this season (stacked - I have Thomas and Cameron too) but kinda wish I'd waited a couple of weeks. You should be able to get much better value now.
