I think that trade might have looked close at the beginning of the season, but your team is struggling because of these guys. You are trying to sell them when they are are underachieving for an elite WR performing in his prime.
If you are going to trade them, your best candidate would be another underperforming player. The Portis owner might look at that trade. Duece could be back soon, Taylor for Duece (or Dominick) is a gamble that could pay off. You will have a hell of a time trading away the players who are holding your team back for the players that are leading other teams to victory.
Santana Moss was considered just outside the top 6 WR, probably near the top of the next group of WRs. Taylor was about the 9th to 12th RB drafted in most leagues. I personally prefer to get the best player in the deal, so I would almost always want the Randy side.
To be truthful, I still have faith in Santana Moss. I would trade Taylor to some unaware owner who hasn't realized Jones and Toefield are sucking his value down. I think Moss will still contribute some nice games.
The meek ain't gonna inherit $#!%....'cuz I'll TAKE IT!
Ok for arguments sake let us say that S. Moss and F. Taylor combined will score you 20 points. Let's say that R. Moss also scores you 20 points.
So I'm using two slots to achieve those 20 points, while in the other situation I'm using one slot to gain the same 20 points.
Why would I make this trade (throwing out depth and injury problems)?
After all I can always just plug in any random WR in that extra slot that I have, to gain an extra few points. That total will be obviously be higher than the 20 points gained by the F. Taylor and S. Moss owner.
Bingo.... Well said, Aristotle... You saved me some typing, there...

I know I know a 4 team league should be easy but its not. Its kind of like should I start fred taylor or kevan barlow? so its a lot different froom other leagues. but ya I am going to go for someone else. thanks anyways though guys.
A four team league is all about luck... The larger the league, the more skill that's involved, because teams have weak spots, and need to start waiver wire fodder at just the right times in order to get points out of them... In a four teamer, every player on all the rosters is good, and it's all just a matter of who has a good game on what week... There isn't much skill involved at all... But, consistency is the key, and it doesn't get much more consistent than Randy Moss... In a four teamer, the only people I would give you Moss for are:
