I know all the pros and cons of Q's size and abilities. But he also seems to me that he could be a great Swing back (WR/RB). I am in need of another WR should i trade Q for a #3 WR or keep him around on my bench....I have Rudi Johnson and Marshall Faulk, and Steven Jackson...should i trade Q or hold on to him?

now with mike andersons injury, imo q-tip's stock rises. he doesn't have to worry about getting goal line carries stolen from him (by anderson atleast). it also secures him as a starter in week one. denver is expecting big things out of tatum bell, but with the hold out and his finger injury, they have not had a chance to look at him yet. it's q-tip's job to lose right now, and we all now what a rb factory denver has been in the past. i say hang on to him!

IMO having Faulk and S. Jackson = 1 player since SJ won't be a factor until Faulk get hurt. If you trade away Q-tip, that would leave you with just 2 RB's and that would suck on bye weeks. I'd keep him as a quality backup RB/part time starter like when Rudi plays Baltimore twice this year.

P. S. Post #1000! :-]
That's my two cents and it's worth every penny of it!

I like Q a lot for this year. Anderson is hurt, so he should see more goalline work. Bell didnt look all that great in his first preseaon game and is now a couple months behind everyone. The job is for sure Q's.

I would actually look to trade Faulk. SJ may get more carries than people think, and if they want to keep Faulk healthy, they may pull him on short yardage and goalline situations.

That may hurt your RB depth by doing so, but I think SJ is a decent bye week fill in if he's getting 10-15 touches a game. If you trade Q, like said before, you are really hurting on the bye weeks.
