Just traded away CALVIN JOHNSON! after week 4.

and Felix Jones.

In return, I am receiving Darren McFadden and Nate Washington.

I know, it looks 'Wow' in the beginning. Its a 2 RB, 3 WR, 2 W/R league and I coveted Johnson before the season. I was happy to get him.
But I am now sitting 1-3, and rb help is needed.

My trade partner is 4-0 and must not know just how valuable DMC actually is. Easily his teams mvp. McFadden has more points in this league than CJ does even with CJs 8 tds. RBs are valued more.

I knew i could make this trade for obvious reasons but in the long run, i think i will come out on top. No way he stays undefeated now w/o DMC

That's actually a really good trade on your part. D-Mac is having a fantastic year, and finally really living up to his potential! Certainly the focus of the Raiders offense. And Nate Washington is having the best season of his career, in my opinion, and will be seeing the ball even more with Britt being out for the season.

Thats kind of what I thought. Thanks. I cant really see CJ keeping up with those 2 td games, and he still wasnt getting me the wins.

My rbs are Mendenhall and Jones and Ryan Grant so I needed help there. I have great depth at receiver with A. Johnson , AJ Green, J. Jones, V Jax., J. Nelson, and Crabtree!

I have been eyeing this move since week 2. McFadden is blowing up. Hasselback has to stay healthy and I think my matchups are going to turn to wins

I think it was a good trade as long as 2 things happen: #1 he stays healthy and #2 the Raiders keep playing good. My concern would be #2? If they are down 14-21 pts the run game goes away. Other than that great trade.

D-Mac is leading the Raiders in receptions too, so even if the run game goes away he is a huge part of their passing attack.

And as far as Hasselback staying healthy for Washington to stay effective - that offensive line is keeping him pretty clean, and he's playing smart in the pocket getting the ball out quickly. If he were to get hurt though, Locker has already looked pretty good too.
