Forte for Boldin?

I've been offered Anquan Boldin for Matt Forte. Any thoughts? I'm in a PPR league, where we start 2 RB, 2 WR, and no flex player. My other RBs are Chris Johnson and DeAngelo WIlliams, and my receivers are Steve Smith (Carolina), Hines Ward, Dwayne Bowe, and Austin Collie. I'd have to drop one of my receivers to be in compliance with league rules.... I'd also need to pick up a third RB for bye weeks and bad matchups, but that's another kettle of fish....

I wouldn't do it. Forte has more value than Boldin right now, and I'm not entirely convinced Boldin is a big upgrade over your two current WRs.

I agree with Tally, in fact it is a emphatic hell no. In a PPR league, Forte has got to be close, or in the Top 10 of RB's and I agree with tally, Boldin isn't a convincing upgrade over your leftover WR's.

The only way I tell you to do this trade is if I'm the guy on the other end of it.

Boldin's monster game notwithstanding...
