    He's offering me Alexader for Gates. Should I take it? As of now my WR's have been carrying me and I'm afraid to give up Gates especially with Andre Johnson hurt and not knowing when he will get back, but Maroney has done squat for me. If i do this trade i can pick up Heath Miller on the waiver wire. Or should i package Maroney and Gates for Alexander and Brandon Jones? What do you guys think?


    My team:
    QB: Eli Manning, Matt Hasselback
    RB: Portis, Maroney, Norwood, Ward, R. Dayne, E. Graham
    WRs: Andre Johnson, Lav Coles, Brandon Marshall, James Jones
    TE: Gates
    Kicker: Nick Folk
    Def: Tampa Bay

    His Team:
    QB: Brett Farve, Jake Delhomme, David Carr
    RB: Alexander, Mcgahee, Jamal Lewis, B. Leonard, and Dunn
    WR: Roy Williams, D. Driver, Santonio Holmes, Brandon Jones
    TE: Todd Heap
    K:Elam
    Def: Minnesota

    You dont need 3 #1 RBs do you? You should try and make a trade like this:

    Maroney
    Gates
    Jones

    for

    Driver
    Alexander

    Alexander and Portis should be able to carry you pretty far. Unless Portis gets hurt, like he usually does =)

    I was looking at that also but he loves Driver. I guess it wouldnt hurt to bring it up. As for Portis, so far so good :). Hey how about taking a week off and letting the Rams get their 1st win?

    Who else do you have at TE? Who is available at TE in your league?

    The gap between Gates and Heath Miller (or Todd Heap) is greater than the gap between Alexander and Maroney (or Ward).

    So I wouldn't make the trade.

    I'd make him give you Heap in the deal somehow.

    I'd find a way to get rid of Portis. He might not be healthy should you make the playoffs. BTW I don't think I would take that deal.

    As of now Gates is my only TE. This is 12 person league so there arent that many TEs to pick from. Heath Miller is the best one available, after that its TEs like Eric Johnson and Bo Scaife.
