Trade Offer Burress for Jackson

In a deep PPR keeper league (12 starters, 3flex) I'm being offered Burress for Steven Jackson.

I have receiver issues with Mike Wallace as my only solid.
Others include Washington, Royal, Gaffney, Nelson, Crayton & Bennett.

RBs are Forte, Foster, Jackson, Sproles.

I'm tempted to upgrade my WRs, but if Jackson is healthy he's a lock.

The only other issue I see is minor, this trade leaves me a bye problem at RB in week 11.

Thoughts?

Which Jackson? If it's Steven Jackson, the Rams have a great schedule the last 8 weeks of the year. If it's Fred, the weather might start to play havoc with that offense.

I'd be starting Wallace, Nelson and either Gaffney or Washington at WR. If you have 3 flex and a RB slot, start all of your RBs.

I don't see Burress being worth it, frankly. He's an oldish WR on a meh offense.

Agree. Keep S Jax. Burress will be a fantasy tease.

It's Steven. Rode him in flex to the championship last year. Gonna try to make lightning strike twice.

Thanks.
