Gore for whom?

I've drafted Frank Gore (RB) in a 16 team league and I'm getting concerned. I'd like to trade him. This is a yardage league (1 point per 10 yards receiving or rushing, 6 points/TD) where you start 1 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX.

Who would you target? Mendenhall? Hillis? Forte? Fred Jackson?

Forte or Fred Jackson.

I'm in the process of selling him, but it's hard. You need to find a RB needy team. I'm getting Ben Tate and Reggie Wayne for Gore and Dustin Keller. I already have Witten so Keller's not much use to me. Honestly I'm just happy to get rid of Gore, his prospects look pretty grim.

If I were you keep the Gore deals under wraps until after the Philly game this week. They've been giving up fantasy points by the boatload to RBs and if he's healthy enough to play, he might even look decent against the suckage of Philly's LB group. Then just sell him after that. Although the downside is that he's not fit enough to play, Kendall Hunter has a great game and Gore's value plummets...

Straight up for another RB if you manage to get Forte or Fred Jackson then it's an absolute steal. I'd be more thinking Mendenhall or guys in the Felix Jones/Tim Hightower/Shonn Greene type bracket.
