    I just traded Edge for Moss... what do you think?

    I had Willie Parker, LaMont Jordan, Tiki Barber and Edge as my Running Backs (small league). As you can see, I'm fine at RB.

    I had Deion Branch, Reggie Wayne, Micheal Clayton and Derrick Mason as my WRs. Reggie Wayne hasn't done anything but Michael Clayton and Derrick Mason are pretty good options. Deione Branch has done well so far, but doesn't have any touchdowns.

    So I just traded away Edge for Randy Moss. I had to give up Branch as well to give the guy another option at WR to fill the gap left by MOss.

    Now, I know that I lost more in points than I gained, but I hadn't used Branch at all yet, and I the difference between Wayne and Moss is greater than the difference between Barber and Edge. So the trade, I thought, was good for both of us. I'll gain at least 10 points next week from this.

    Would you have done the same thing? Or was I a moron?

    Yah decent trade I guess.. As long as Willie Parker has the Stellers line he should play well.. And Tiki should put up good numbers.. You now have a WR who puts up 100 yards and a TD a game.. But Edge gets 100 yards a game, plus is a good recieving back.. Could go either way with the trade I guess.. But you now have a constint WR

    I don't know about this. Not sure. Your Running Backs are studs, but this may come back to bite you in the ass. I guess you will find out. I don't like that you had to give up branch though...

    That's what I figured. They are a wash when it comes to total point per week, but I needed another WR that I could play and I had too many good RB anyway. No reason to just let one of those RB just sit on the bench.

    I was leery about giving up Branch too. That was his counter offer. But I didn't really mind when I realized that I would have Clayton, Mason, Wayne and Moss to play.

    My only worry was putting my faith in Willie Parker. not that he won't continue to produce, but becasue there are two other backs in Pittsburg that may take his carries. Especially the Bus on the goalline.

    Good trade. I regret my trade after week one. I had S. Alexander, L. Jordan, F. Taylor, C. Williams for backs. WR- C. Johnson, N. Burleson, L. Coles, B. Edwards. I traded Taylor and Edwards for A. Johnson. Andre has been sucking and Edwards did good week 2. I wish their was take backs!

    Another great sig by PPE!

    Straight up good trade, Moss is unreal in fantasy football when he stays healthy, it gives you an extra four to 10 points on your opponents wideouts every single week. If Parker remaines the starter in Pitt you wont even miss Edge with Parker and Barber (who had 2,000 total yards and 15 TDs last year topping Edge BY FAR in fantasy world)

    Johnson wont suck all year and Edwards fantasy number is high because of one play ... though he looks ready to break out, not too bad a trade.

    Good trade. In my league Moss in the number one wide receiver (i think, or he's at least top five), while Edge is a okay RB. I think that was a great trade.

    I don't think this one is too bad. Probably a wash. Johnson will get better and Edwards is still unproven really. Just upside. I think it was ok.
