I am considering a trade in my fantasy football league. Two receivers (Jimmy Smith and Eric Moulds) for RB (Anthony Thomas).

Our point system is based on 6 points for TDs and 1pt for every 10 yds rushing/receiving.

The biggest question for me is if Anthony Thomas will progress as a running back in his 2nd yr. I would be giving up two quality receivers for this RB--but that doesn't worry too much because i have depth at receiver.

What do you guys think in terms of value?

Those are two REALLY good receivers. Unless your absolutely stacked at WR, I wouldn't do it. A-Train in an unproven commodity. A lot of backs in the NFL have had one 1,000 yard season.

I agree with trentvaughn. My initial thought is that I wouldn't trade two top tier WR's for one top tier RB. If you can make a one-for-one trade and really need the RB then do it. The question is: How many RB's are you allowed to play and who else do you have at RB and WR?

Bottom line: if you are stacked at WR and really don't have a good RB, then do it. But if you are looking pretty good at both WR and RB, don't make the trade.

Good luck!

theres no way you should make that trade for the simple fact that you are giving up 2 starters for one young RB. granted a-train is good your giving up two 1000 yd WR for one 1000 yd RB the point swing in this case is too great. i seriously doubt that your trading away your #1 and #2 WR or at least i hope not, so that said you must have great depth at WR so keep that for the points or if your in dire need of a RB trade one of those player with another lesser player to upgrade in what would be a smaller deal because a-trains not proven enough yet to give up that much talent

As much as I like Thomas, if you make that trade, you are a f00l...

Why don't you try trading one receiver for someone like Travis Henry. You'd benefit more from a trade like that I think.

You may not want to give up 2 proven veteran WR's for a 2nd year RB.Unless you are stacked and got 3 good options at WR after that trade,I just wouldn't do it.You may want to try trading away one of your backs and one wide receiver for a solid RB.Or looking on the FA market to see who's available.
