    I'm in a 12 team standard league. My WRs are weak but the rest of my team is good. I was offered:
    Dez Bryant, Josh Gordon, Terrelle Pryor, and Bryce Brown
    Peyton Manning, Eddie Royal, Willis McGahee

    I would end up dropping Jerricho Cotchery when the trade goes through.

    The rest of the players on my team are:
    QB - Philip Rivers
    RB 1 - LeSean McCoy
    RB 2 - Reggie Bush
    WR - James Jones
    WR - Roddy White (traded Hakeem Nicks for him after he was injured)
    TE - Jimmy Graham
    FLEX - Eddie Lacy
    D - Browns & Titans D/ST
    BENCH -
    Bernard Pierce
    Pierre Thomas
    Ryan Broyles
    Jericho Cotchery

    My WRs are in panic mode now. Should I give up Manning to have Dez / Gordon instead of doing a smaller trade now and hoping Roddy White / James Jones / another WR will be my starters in the playoffs? The Brown handcuff for McCoy is nice, and I hate to give up Manning, but with Philip Rivers playing so well and getting Pryor as a backup matchup play, I have possibilities. Thoughts?

    I'll answer your questions as well.

    That's an easy accept IMO. Dez and Gordon go straight in to your starting lineup and are huge upgrades on what you have. Manning to Rivers is a downgrade sure, but this more than makes up for it. Press accept

    Interesting proposition. If you feel comfortable with Rivers as your QB, make the trade.

    I too lucked out w/ Manning as my QB--with the 6th overall pick. I was wondering if I should try and trade him for a couple of studs myself, but our yahoo league is so insanely QB centric. Interesting to see others with the same conundrum.
