    I just made a blockbuster in my league and wanted to see what everyone thought.

    I never thought it would be accepted, but it was...

    I gave up Jon Kitna and Frank Gore

    I got Carson Palmer and Jamal Lewis

    The kicker is that I currently have MBIII and Adrian Peterson as running backs as well, and I was hoping to parlay Gore into a top-tier QB or a top tier WR.

    So my starting lineup is now:

    QB - Carson Palmer

    RB - MBIII
    RB - AD

    WR - Marvin Harrison
    WR - Reggie Wayne
    WR - Vincent Jackson

    TE- Jason Witten

    K - Nick Folk

    D - Minny

    Kitna and Palmer will probably equal each other out.

    But Gore > Lewis big time. Unless Lewis is playing Cincy.

    I think Kitna and Palmer will equal eachother out. Kitna just keeps throwing and throwing and throwing, and Cincy has SOME kind of run game to lean back on SOMETIMES and DET doesnt.

    I have Gore on one of my fantasy teams and he just hasn't been as productive as I'd expected.

    With AD and MBIII on your team, I could see where you might choose to sit Gore.

    Starting Palmer at QB is worth more than a benched Gore, so I can see how it makes sense.

    It is a gamble, of course. If AD or MBIII gets hurt and/or Gore gets hot, you'll miss Gore, but if AD and MBIII continue to be productive, the trade will be a good one for you.

    That's just wrong! :p:

    Well, the trade's been working out pretty well for me so far.

    I'm 6-0 and leading my league in points.

    The main thing I wanted to do was get Gore off my roster so I wasn't tempted to start him over AD or MBIII... and I think I upgraded my QB in the process. Only time will tell on that measure, though.

    I think Gore is going to have an average year. Wouldn't surprise me if MBIII outscores him. And of course, AD is going to blow him away.

    As for my defense, I picked up the Giants a couple weeks ago and have been platooning them with the Vikes... I'll probably do that again this week.
