Would you make this trade if you were a Royal owner. My WR’s are Moss, Calvin Johnson and Brandon Marshall, and Cutler is my QB. My RB’s are Frank Gore, Chris Johnson, Lawrence Maroney, Sammy Morris, Ahmad Bradshaw and Rashad Mendenhall.

Would you trade a #2 WR for a #1 RB? I would. Royal is definitely a sell-high candidate. He put up great numbers in week one, but I’d argue he’s the #3 option in that offense, with Marshall being the #1 and Scheffler being #2. Perry hasn’t put up great numbers in the first two weeks, but he did score a TD last week. More importantly, he’s the starting RB in an offense that has yet to get going. It’s only a matter of time. You’ve got three solid receivers in Moss, Johnson and Marshall. I don’t think you’re losing much if you deal Royal. I’d pull that trigger in a heartbeat. Good luck!

    I wouldn’t. You have some GREAT RB’s already, and Royal has proven he can be an asset at WR.References :

    No way, you’d be crazy to do that. Royal will be the best Rookie WR this year and is a definite candidate for offensive rookie of the year.References :

    You should be able to get more than Chris Perry for Royal. Cincy plays in a tough division and don’t see Perry doing anything special. Royal on the other hand, can be huge, especially if teams start double teaming Marshall or if Marshall would happen to get hurt. Keep Royal or make the other guy up the ante.

    Good Luck. References :

    Thats a horrible trade….You have Gore and Johnson…..I really dont need to say anymore then that…..I am a royal owner and I am going to stick with Royal besides Perry????? Are you nuts. he is in the bottom half of RBs in the league and you have 3 of the top….So NO……The only issue I see you having is when its Denvers bye week you might struggle a bit but do not do this trade. No Way!!!References :
