Fantasy Trade Advice - Antonio Bryant

I’m in the middle of a slow draft right now, and some guy is offering me Antonio Bryant for Donald Driver and my pick coming up on the clock right now. The best remaining players are Chester Taylor, Leon Washington, Miles Austin, and Jamal Charles in my opinion. Good deal?

Standard scoring except for .5 PPR, 3 bonus points for 100 yards receiving or rushing, and two more points for 150 yards.

I have 3 stud WR's already (Calvin Johnson, Reggie Wayne, and Roddy White) so either of them would be a 4th WR for my team and we only need to start 3. However, they could be the flex player and obviously I need guys for byes, injuries, etc.

So is Bryant better than having Driver + one of those other guys? And if not, which one of those four do you think I should pick? :-) (I have a good RB situation too. Barber, Lynch, Moreno, and LenDale White)

Any help is very much aprecciated.

I really don't like your RB situation, so I would try and see if he would be willing to give up a RB instead of Driver. If not, then I think Driver + Washington is better than Bryant by himself. In fact, I think Bryant and Driver are pretty even in value, due to TB's QB situation, so I'd definitely do that deal.

I decided to turn down the deal and go with Washington. I think your right that Driver and Bryant aren't too different in value. I'm also hoping that Charles falls to my next pick. Thanks for the advice.

It's a 14 team league, if that makes my RB situation seem any better. Maybe it's just that I like all my RB's but it seems like a good core of guys.

In a 14-th team league they do look better, but you're going to have problems the first four weeks because of Lynch's suspension. Washington could be good value there though.

I'm not too worried about the first four weeks. I think my team is pretty strong and I'm playing most of the worst teams in my league then. I'm hoping to come out 3-1.
