grant replacement trade for jackson suggestions?

i lost grant. another owner in the league is offering up b. jackson and/or bowe. here is what i have on my roster:

RBs
---
Gore
Forte
McFadden
B. Westbrook

WR's
---
Fitz
M. Wallace
S. Moss
V. Jax

TE's
---
D. Clark
J. Gresham

i was considering offering Wallace or Moss straight up for Jackson? thoughts? which one should i part with?

he has no WR depth and only has Winslow as a TE, so i was considering throwing Gresham in there if he balked at the deal. instead i'd consider a deal based around mcFadden, but he's my only depth at the position, which is incredibly sad...

How many do you need to start?

You don't want to give up a potential starting WR for a bench RB.

thanks for the response tally.

we start 2 rb, 2 wr, 1 te and 1 flex (wr/te/rb).

Seems pretty even to me since you're looking at a flex spot here. Wallace is the obvious #2 in PIT while Moss is the obvious #1 in WAS. I feel like Wallace has better potential upside, but that's just a gut feeling after watching one game. Offer up Wallace if you think that will get him to sell low on Bowe as well.

that's pretty much exactly my take on wallace vs moss as well.

so you are suggesting offering up wallace and gresham for jackson and bowe?

ps if you are the one that made that dynamic drafting xls and put it up here for everyone, thanks for offering that up.

I think Gresham is a good sell high candidate this week.

And I'm happy you found the spreadsheet useful. I hope to make some improvements in next year's incarnation once I learn a little more Excel.

well, unfortunately the guy in my is not a wallace believer (he didn't actually know who he was). he has offered me a couple of one sided deals centered around getting f. gore...ugh.
