Non-keeper league, standard scoring. 1 QB, 2RB, 3WR, no flex. My team is:
RB: Rice, Mathews/Tolbert, Benson
WR: Mike Wallace, Fitzgerald, AJ Green, Holmes
TE: Keller, Ballard
I'm tied for first place and should make the playoffs easily, but I want to solidify myself for a first round bye and for the playoffs. The one player I've been looking to trade is Fitzgerald, who is very good but not elite fantasy-wise and I think is generally overrated because of his name.
The trade I've been offered is Benson and Fitzgerald for Steve Smith. I think Smith is an upgrade on Fitzgerald (as surprising as that may have been before the season) and as long as Rice and one of Mathews/Tolbert is healthy, Benson is unnecessary. Is it worth it to make the minor upgrade at WR to lose a valuable insurance policy in Benson?
I would lose Smith this week on the bye, but the rest of his schedule is more favorable than Fitzgerald's in my opinion.
