help me pull of a trade in my $$$ league

Passing Scoring: .5/completion, 20 yards per point; 5 points at 250 yards; 10 points at 300 yards; 15 points at 400 yards. TD=6, INT=-3, Sack=-1
Rushing Scoring: 10 yards per point; 5 points at 100 yards; 10 points at 150 yards; 15 points at 200 yards. TD=6
Receiving Scoring: 10 yards per point; 5 points at 100 yards; 10 points at 150 yards; 15 points at 200 yards. TD=6
Fumbles=-2

Now here's the deal, I have Foster, McCoy, and Welker in this league, and they get me A LOT of points.

however my QB's are currently Hasselbeck and Orton (drafted Manning with the 24th pick) and I'm afraid I may not survive with a legit QB in this league.

I'm thinking of going for either Stafford or Newton:

Stafford Owner: starts Brees, he's starting Tolbert and McGahee at RB, and Fitz and Jordy Nelson at WR.
Newton Owner: starts Rivers, he's starting Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush at RB, and Megatron and Marshall at WR.

now this is a return yards friendly league, so the newton owner also has Hester, Spiller, and Cribbs; the Stafford owner has Cobb.

1) should I bother looking to trade or stay put?
2) if looking to trade? what can I offer? I also have Harvin, Jacoby Ford, Amendola, Mike Thomas, and my TE's are Gonzo and Hernandez, but TE is not a need for either of them
I have offered any player on my team for Stafford Beat that!

Haha I doubt dude deals Newton I know his style and you have to pay waaaay more to get him to deal. Stafford owner maybe. s**t before the season started I offerd him Jcharles and Vincent Jackson and he wanted to wait. BOO! GRRR 0-4.

Bro you can win your league with your current roster. You dont really need to trade for anyone with your talent at WR, RB and TE. Stick it out and wait until someones desperate to trade. Its about week 6 people start to crack and start trading.

cool that's how I'm currently feeling, I'm 3-1 at the moment and that was with Foster hurt the first 3 weeks
I'd either stick to your guns (Hasselbeck isn't that bad) or try to trade Foster.

But I think if you do trade Foster you should try to make it a 2 for 2 so you can upgrade somewhere else as well.

I wouldn't trade any of them three players you listed. For my money, I try and get the Roethlisberger owner to bite on something much much less expensive. Orton and Harvin may jsut do the trick. Hass and Harvin may also if he needs a WR. What about teh Schaub owner? What dow he need?

don't want Ben and Schaub is the starter for that owner and backup is Kolb, what about the Vick owner? he's 0-4 and has Cutler as his backup, is he worth a look?

He would be but...... the problem with trying to solve a problem with a top guy will only shift your problem else where. I too am not a big fantasy Schaub fan but beats giving away one of the 3 you named for a top QB. What does your WHOLE team look like?
