Help me work a trade

I just had an owner reach out to me who is thin at RB and deep at WR. I on the other hand am thin at WR and deeper at RB. He'd like me to propose something. Key information to keep in mind: It's a PPR league and we get 1pt per reception. We pick up our free agents via auction with a $100 budget. Dollars can be traded. His balance is $97. Mine is $94.

His team:
Matt Ryan (Atl - QB)
Vincent Jackson (TB - WR)
Dez Bryant (Dal - WR)
Ray Rice (Bal - RB)
Ryan Williams (Ari - RB)
Tony Gonzalez (Atl - TE)
Jordy Nelson (GB - WR)
Martellus Bennett (NYG - TE)
Michael Crabtree (SF - WR)
Shonn Greene (NYJ - RB)
Antonio Brown (Pit - WR)
Josh Freeman (TB - QB)
Jerome Simpson (Min - WR)
Javon Ringer

My Team:

Phillip Rivers
Greg Jennings
Stevie Johnson
Darren Mcf*ggen
Darren Sproles
Brandon Petegrew
Ryan Mathews
Micheal Bush
Randy Moss
Nate Washington
Brain Hartline
Carson Palmer
Pierre Thomas
Mike Goodson

Thinking of offering Micheal Bush + money for Dez Bryant or Vincent Jackson. Thoughts?

Do you think that's fair? I rarely trade which is why I'm looking for advice. Should I offer Bush straight up or throw in some money ($10). I see Jackson as a little more valuable than Bryant but he did draft Bryant first.

Geez, I wouldnt do that if I were him...maybe I'd do it for VJ but not Dez, I wouldn't give up on Dez this early

Yeah I don't want to insult him. I'd be happy to trade Bush(+ $10) for VJ as I think he may have the better year.

I could also offer Bush for Crabs straight up. Remember it's PPR so possession guys with lots of targets have more value than in standard. Still even though the tool in Yahoo thinks it's a fair trade it seems to me that so/so RBs are harder to find during the season than so/so WRs. Not sure if I like the trade.

I'd offer him sproles & hartline or moss +cash for Crabtree and Brown

you're still pretty good shape at RB but now make WR's your strength.

That's an interesting idea. I hate to give up Sproles, he was my keeper (11th round) and it seemed I was the only one who saw promise in him last year. But that would probably make my team stronger and he may just go for it. I know he thinks highly of Sproles. I already sent an offer of Bush +$10 for either VJ or Bryant. If he passes on that (and I haven't pissed him off) I'll think seriously about offering him this. Thanks.
