I need some trade help

I have some serious WR issues, but have been collecting RBs. Now I'm looking to make a trade.

I was offered Decker + Hunter for Daniel Thomas

That's great. It would give me another WR and a handcuff for my best RB. But I'd still need to drop someone to do that. I countered with Thomas, Torain, Hernandez for Decker, Hunter, Witten

If he doesn't go for my counter trade offer (he's thinking about it), then should I:

a. take the trade and go without a TE until hernandez comes back
b. take the trade and drop bush, torain, moore, or cruz
c. just take decker for thomas straight up and forget about hunter


This is my team (currently 2-2), nonPPR:

QB - Romo
WR - Roddy White
WR - Holmes
WR - Victor Cruz
RB - Gore
RB - Blount
FLX - Tolbert
TE - McMichael
DEF - Saints
K - Folk
BN - Michael Bush
BN - Daniel Thomas
BN - Denarius Moore
BN - Ryan Torain
BN - Matt Hasselbeck
BN - Aaron Hernandez
If he doesn't go for your counter, I would go with option C. Decker fills your 3rd starting WR position, you gain a valuable handcuff, and I would actually rather start Moore over Cruz anyways..
It sounds like he might take my counter trade of Thomas, Torain, Hernandez for Decker, Hunter, Witten.

I'm getting a little nervous about it though. Thomas and Torain are both pretty big question marks, but they also both have a good shot at being the #1 RB on their team, without having to have another RB get injured. If I give them both up then my RBs would be Gore, Blount, Tolbert, Bush, Hunter. So I would be starting Tolbert or Bush as my flex each week, and neither one is assured of getting more than 5 carries....

Am I over thinking this?
oops. double post.

You are giving up waay too much imo for eric decker. When he's healthy again imo Hernandez > than Witten this year. so you're basically giving torrain away. i'd be asking for something more than decker. And I like decker, but not that much. Especially when the Tebow experiment can happen at any moment.

Yeah, good point.

There's another guy with AJ Green that need RB help. I offered Torain but he didn't go for it. Would Tolbert or Thomas be worthwhile trades for Green?

The guy with Decker just said he would do the big trade, but after reading this I stalled. I guess I'm just afraid of what happens if they start Tebow.
