What WR would be equal to Q. Griffin right now?

If you have Griff and are confident him and willing to roll the dice a bit, what you might want to do is trade you're stud running back - he will get better value than Griff at this point. Then, plan on starting Griff the rest of the year. It's a good idea to have Bell handcuffed in this situation.

You are sitting great with running backs right now... I would hold on to Griffin for a couple of weeks if you can. Unless you are offered a stud WR like Holt or Owens.(Odds are this won't happen in week 1) Someone will be in need of a RB soon and you have Great RB's to Trade.
Don't sell yourself short....Shop him around and believe his stock will rise!!!

I know this may sound ridiculous, but I was just offered Deuce freakin' McAllister for Quentin Griffin. Funny thing is, I'm actually considering turning the offer down. Wow, I'm a retard.

I just don't really want 2 "Stud" RBs at this point in time because I'm salivating at the opportunity to start different RBs based on matchups.

Help me out in the Draft forum if you would:

I actually tried to shop one of my "studs" to everyone in my league. Denied by all 11 teams. Yup, Lewis! I thought he was a steal at 13. He's going to kill me this season. I know his O-line's banged up and Boller SKS but, I don't see things getting better anytime soon.

Selling low never works. You will always, always get ripped off. If you don't want Jamal put trade offers up after a good game, not after a terrible one.

Yeah, I would recommend dumping Q-Tip for someone like Chad Johnson or Hines Ward this week if you have the RB depth. This is a great and very effective example of selling high and buying low.

And if you can't get any good deals this week, as someone mentioned early, just try again after Week 3 when Griffin tears it up against San Diego. But I strongly doubt that he will duplicate those numbers this week against a tough Jag D, so don't start him if you're betting he'll have another 150+ and 2 TD game.

This makes things a little more interesting. I was offered: Manning, Pats D. and D. Mason for J. Lewis, A. Brooks and Tenn D. That would upgrade QB and my D and I'm really only giving up Lewis, who might kill me at the end of the season because of court sht.

Am I too high or does this make sence?

My current line up:

QB Bulger, Brooks (start 1)
Could be Manning with Bulger on the bench

RB Edge, Lewis, Griffin and T. Henry (start 2)
Could start Edge and play the match up with Henry and Griffin

WR S. Moss, Stallworth and Calico
Could start S. Moss and Mason not great but, I don't have any faith starting Stallworth.

Breaking news flash Stallworth sks!

Tenn and GB
Could start the #1 D each week Pats

It's one thing to predict he'll have a better year than F. Taylor, etc...but the fact that he's not proven, brings his current value down below those backs with a proven track record.
