I have him. Should I trade him for J. Porter?

depends on your depth at both positions...I don't think Porter would be a huge upgrade...I would try to find someone who is desperate at RB, and has a great #2 WR. The market on Willis is extremely high, especially given he hasn't played a down yet, and could be labeled injury prone..but if it's a keeper league, I might be willing to take the risk myself. If he ends up starting in Buffalo this year or next year, his value will only go up from there.

Someone would have to be insanely desperate to trade for McGahee, especially if they're giving up a "great #2 WR." Their starters would have to be Warrick Dunn and Troy Hambrick with a crapload of great receivers. Travis Henry is the man. McGahee may steal some carries, but he is not a legit option in fantasy football this year (unless Henry breaks leg or gets traded).

McGahee wont see time even if Henry breaks his leg, since Henry played with a broken leg last year. He'll be a change of pace for Henry, giving him a bit of a break. Hes pretty good in a keeper, because he'll probably start next year when they trade Henry.

I'm debating on whether or not to drop Steven Jackson for Willis as my 3rd back.

This I would not do... Jackson is looking almost as good as McGahee right now, and I think the only difference is who is more likely to play...

Henry will play on a broken leg (he did it last year)... Marshall will take some time off for a hangnail...

Jackson is the way to go, IMO...

Why? As it stands today, do you think Travis Henry or Marshall Faulk has a better chance to lose playing time due to an injury?

Once you answer that question correctly, your decision is already made for you. I would think about 99% of the people around here know the answer to the question already.

Just because people think something doesn't mean it's correct, or is the only right answer. Give the guy a break for asking a question.

Is their anyone else on your team besides Jackson you can drop? Mainly a backup kicker or backup defense (those are wastes of roster slots) If you have a bad backup TE thats a droppage possiblilty also.
