I am being offered Clinton Portis for Ronnie Brown and Brandon Marshall. It is a 10-team ESPN league with 2 RB, 2 WR, and a flex and standard scoring. My other RBs are Westbrook, Reggie Bush, Kevin Smith, and Chris Perry. My other WR’s are Reggie Wayne, Donald Driver, and Javon Walker. Do I pull the trigger on this trade?

If you are getting Clinton Portis, then you should do this deal in a heartbeat and run like you stole something, because, well, you would have stole something. Think about it: your starting backfield would be Westbrook/Portis. That’s a near-unstoppable tandem in Fantasy.

However, if you’re even considering trading away Portis for Marshall and Brown, please click "Cancel Trade" as fast as humanly possible. Here’s why: Brown’s coming off a major injury, is still an injury risk, and is splitting time in the backfield. There’s not much Fantasy value there. Marshall is a good player, but is still in the second tier of receivers.

The bottom line is that whoever gets Portis in this trade will be making out like a bandit. I hope it’s you.

Good luck!

    If I thought Brown was gonna stay healthy, I would say yes. But I just don’t see it. In that case, you are trading a #1 RB for a #2 WR. No deal.
