Potential Trades

I'm in a 12 team league, no PPR. 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 Wrs, TE, D, K. 6 points for passing TD, all other scoring standard. There was an early run on QBs because of the scoring system so my situation is shaky. I'm targeting the team with Rivers for a potential trade.

My Team:
QB Palmer, Bulger
RB MJD, Kevin Smith, Knowshown, Bush, Mendenhall, Sproles
WR Wayne, V Jackson, Holt, Hixon, Galloway, Chris Henry
TE Winslow
D Seahawks

His Team:
QB Rivers, Collins
RB, AP, Addai, Jonathan Stewart, Jamal Lewis, Maroney
WR Jennings, Mason, Devery Henderson, Miles Austin, Maclin
TE Tony Gonzalez, Fasano
D San Diego

He is obviously thin at WR, but I would prefer to give a RB along with Palmer for Rivers, or at the very least give a WR and get one back, so I don't have to downgrade my Wrs. Here are some ideas I had.

Palmer, Bush for Rivers
Palmer, Mendenhall, Henry for Rivers
Palmer, Hixon for Rivers
Palmer, Holt or Hixon, Mendenhall, Seahawks, for Rivers, Mason, and San Diego
Palmer, Holt or Hixon, Sproles for Rivers, Mason
Palmer, V Jackson for Rivers, Mason (This I would rather not do)

These are just some ideas. Do you like any of them? Do you have any suggestions of a trade that would work for me and that he might accept? I'm obviously trying to give up as little as possible and would prefer to trade more players than I get back.

I suppose you could try them, but if I were the other owner I wouldn't agree to any of those offers. The offer that comes closest though is the first one.

Yeah, I know these are all bad trades for the other owner. I'm obviously trying to get a trade done while giving up the least talent possible. I know it's a long shot, but I figured I'd throw out a few ideas.

Thanks for the advice, I'll keep thinking.
