    Should I consider these?

    Or should I laugh in his face?

    Depends. What do you need if anything?

    No and No.

    Chris Johnson shares carries.
    Clinton Portis only recorded 6 games of over 100 yards rushing last year. He only had 2 games with more then 1 TD. He had 9 games with 0 TDs. He's pretty much worth 80-100 yards with 0 to 1 TD a game.

    I don't think they are worth a top 5 QB.

    I stay away from Stephen Jackson until he shows he can stay healthy and the Rams show they have a pulse. Otherwise, I just don't see the value in trading for 3 decent QBs. You'll be arguing with yourself every single week which QB you should start.

    Stick with Brees.

    Its a keeper league. I can keep two players. Here is my team.

    Brees, Drew QB NO Locked as a keeper.
    Thigpen, Tyler QB KC
    Jones, Thomas RB NYJ
    Williams, Ricky RB MIA
    Gonzalez, Anthony WR IND
    Henderson, Devery WR NO
    Jackson, DeSean WR PHI
    Winslow, Kellen TE TB
    Folk, Nick K DAL
    Cowboys DST

    Manning, Eli QB NYG
    Jacobs, Brandon RB NYG
    McClain, LeRon RB BAL
    McGahee, Willis RB BAL
    Chambers, Chris WR SD
    Panthers DST

    Bush, Reggie RB
    Pittman, Michael RB DEN

    Im thinking my other keeper will be one of the three guys in green.

    Hmm.. I'd probably go with Brandon Jacobs.

    He signed a big contract. So did Winslow. Productivity usually declines after that. Players usually have a strong year right before a big extension.

    The only reason I am considering Winslow is that TEs are hard to come by and it sounds like Tampa is going to run a west coast offense that features the TE. Marty ball if you will.

    The downside with da ****in Souljuh is that he's on a new team in a new offense. And TB has a lot of questions at QB. Josh Freeman could end up starting sometime this year. I'd be very nervous about making him a keeper.

    Not sure about Jones either. They drafted Shonn Greene, and I think the plan was to split carries so that Jones would stay healthy and fresh.

    Bush is Bush. He'll get catches and yards, but not many TDs...

    I'd probably make Jacobs my keeper too...

    The first trade I'd turn down for sure. Portis isn't elite anymore, and Brees more or less straight up for any RB is probably a bad trade. AP might be the exception.

    You might consider the second deal if you have enough people in your league hard up for QBs that you could flip Cassell or Ben for a decent return.

    How do the trades fit in with the keeper ****? If you trade one guy for four, are you going to end up losing 2-3 of them because you can't protect them??? :confused:

    Will still get the goalline carries though. He missed a few games last year and still had 15 TDs. Imagine if he stays healthy!

    Nothing. You can only keep 2 so getting four players is kind of pointless.

    Pennington, Chad QB MIA
    Jones, Thomas RB NYJ
    Slaton, Steve RB HOU
    Edwards, Braylon WR CLE
    Evans, Lee WR BUF
    Williams, Roy E. WR DAL
    Cooley, Chris TE WAS
    Folk, Nick K DAL
    Eagles DST

    Bench
    Roethlisberger, Ben QB PIT
    Jacobs, Brandon RB NYG
    McClain, LeRon RB BAL
    McGahee, Willis RB BAL
    Crabtree, Michael WR SF
    Dolphins DST

    Injured
    Bush, Reggie RB NO
    Bryant, Antonio WR TB
