Brandon Marshall for Shonn Greene?

I am a bit shallow in the WR dept, but with the way RBs go down, I like to be stocked (plus, Hardesty already hurting?)

My roster (10 team, non-ppr):

Steven Jackson
Ryan Matthews
LeSean McCoy
Shonn Greene
Tony Gerhart

Steve Smith (NYG)
Malcolm Floyd
Kenny Britt

Owen Daniels
Aaron Hernandez

K - Akers

I personally am down on Marshall mostly because I don't think he'll get near the looks he got in Denver. I'd rather own NYG Steve Smith than Marshall, for comparison.

That said, you have 5 quality RBs (I think LDT finishes as a reasonable 3rd back this year). I'd definitely look to move one of them for a WR, but I'd prefer it to be someone other than Marshall. If Greene for Marshall was the only trade I could pull, I'd do it given your roster makeup.

Hope this helps.

I agree with above poster... Marshall is a bit sketchy for me at this point. He certainly has a great pedigree and might be fine, but if there are other guys available that might be worth a shot instead.

Either way, I think you do this and isn't all that close.

You only start 2 RBs I'm assuming?
