I wouldn't accept any of those offers. TE Finley has the chance to receive more targets here in the following weeks with injuries hitting the GB wideouts so hold on to him for now. Cruz is the top option in NY and will get his targets regardless of Eli's terrible performance to date. You can get more for both Cruz and Finley than what is being offered to you based on your win-loss record. Hold out for more.

I don't like any of these deals for you, either. You'd be leaving yourself too thin at WR with Gordon as your WR1. The only deal that's close is the Marshall/Gresham offer, but Gresham is a low-end TE2 unless he can break his timeshare with your boy Eifert. Who else does the Gonzo owner have at WR? Gonzo sounds about right, but Thompkins isn't nearly enough in the WR department.

Andre Johnson & Edelman



I wasn't a major fan of any of the trades because of Finley's bump in value but have been tempted to do something for my team.

I made two great trades this season, Bennett for Gordon, Amendola/Russel Wilson for Matt Ryan. Still can't buy a win.

I agree with the others-I'd stay put.

All of those trades suck, don't take any of them.

You need a better RB2 and a better flex, but unfortunately you don't have much trade bait to work with.

The only trade I would consider is the last one. You clearly need some help at RB and at 1-5, you have to take chances and it's now or never. I would counter and try and get that same trade, with a better WR than Sanders. Getting Bell and CJ2K actually isn't a terrible return, because as I said, you have to take some risks at this point. Bell could end up being a solid RB2 the rest of the way and CJ2K could break out at anytime.

If you are not wanting to take that risk, I would consider plugging Zac Stacy into your lineup, then going out and getting Andre Brown and Shane Vereen off of waivers in the next couple of weeks. This will give you help later rather than now like the trade, but if your team could pull of some wins before then, you might be in ok shape.

The way I look at it, sitting with only 1 win, you are going to have to give up some of your best players to take a risk on some others. If you don't like any of those 3 trades enough, try and look to deal Spiller and or Cruz elsewhere for an RB2 and solid WR.
