Ask the Scramble writers - Week 6!

It's time for more bye week fun, and you need to make the crucial start/sit decision featuring guys like Jacquizz Rodgers and Alex Green! Don't worry, your Scramble writers are here to help! Post your questions below or hit the mailbag at Scramble -et- FootballOutsiders -dit- com.

Due to Wednesday afternoon post time, questions in this thread submitted by Tuesday evening are the ones that get answered in the column. If you have a question after that time, hit the mailbag address or use the column comments section.

I'll try to post next week when we scrape questions, so you know anything that posts after that I probably won't see until the next week.

My league starts 2RB/2WR/1 Flex. The first-place team (I'm in second) just offered me MJD for Welker. I've also got Bowe/Nicks/Wallace at WR, and my RBs are Benson/Thomas/Thomas. It definitely improves me, but I have my worries. Do I go for it? Do I try to deal one of the other receivers? Do I make him give me LeSean McCoy instead?

I'm assuming that's Daniel and Pierre Thomas, right?

Indeed. Since I had both, I didn't bother with the first names.
Of course, now I had to write an extra post to explain that, so way to save four keystrokes, me.

So:
I countered the offer with MJD for Bowe. He came back with MJD/McGahee for Welker/Benson, I upped it to McCoy for Welker, he countered with McCoy/Fred Davis for Welker/Vernon Davis. My first reaction was that this was a big step down at TE, so I need a sanity check: am I mis-evaluating one of the Davises here? Even if I am, is this worth doing anyway?
