that's your target right there, blew his money on 3 guys, his WR1 is Boldin, who the f**k is his WR2? Jeffery?
You can easily offer Sproles and any 2 of your WR's for Lynch. See if he's at least willing to discuss. You have a lot to work with.
Pocketful Pancake and the guy you mentioned would be guys to talk to ass well.
I mean, it would be funny if I did.... But I feel like with him in particular I should offer something fair. He's a chiefs fan, so I don't know which RB he'd rather keep.
So my two questions are:
1. What's a good first offer to Babosos? Start with Nicks and Sproles for Lynch and Boldin? Then go up to Nicks, Wayne, Sproles for McCoy, Meyers, Boldin?
2. What's a fair offer to start with Pancake? Colston, Nicks, Bradshaw for Charles, Rudolph, Eli?
I feel like I'm operating from a position of strength, so I don't want to push it. But if these top heavy teams have a lucky week 1 I could see them refusing to give up big parts.
I wouldn't go for an even number of player exchange. Who's out on the wire? Remember that you are trading for a player that costs $60. Nicks and Sproles = $23, Lynch and Boldin = $68. Even with your leftover $6 you can't pull that off. The good news here is that you can afford to trade away more players than what you'll bring in.
Matter of fact Lynch for Sproles and Cruz still doesn't do it. But you can get away with offering Sproles/Cruz/Colston ($58) for Lynch and Jeffery ($61). Assuming he'd take that (and that's a GOOD deal), look at your team now
WR A. Brown (he's a SOLID WR2)
Flex Nicks or Amendola
You'd be giving up your perceived WR1's, but you have such a strong group of WR2's that you can pull that off (and Wayne/Brown are high WR2's) and then you have good RB depth with Bell, Mendenhall, and Bradshaw, plus you can pick up a WR of the wire with the $3 you'd have left.
