Hey everyone, looking for some help in making a pretty big trade:

League: 14 team 0.5 ppr (return yardage - 40 yds/pt <- matters for Landry)
Start 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1K, 1DST, 2IDP.

My Team:
QB. Tyrod Taylor
RB. Matt Forte, Charcandrick West, Danny Woodhead, Jeremy Hill, Shane Vereen, 
WR. Larry Fitzgerald, Donte Moncrief, Brandin Cooks, Dorial Green-Beckham, Cecil Shorts III
TE. Jimmy Graham, Vernon Davis, Austin Sefarian-Jenkins
K. Robie Gould streaming)
D. New England (streaming)
IDP: Luke Kuechly, Lavonte David

Buddy is in first place and looking to improve his RB. Wants Carcandrick West for his #1 SOS. I need help at WR.

His Team:
QB. Philip Rivers, Matt Stafford
RB. Chris Johnson, Jonathan Stewart, Jeremy Langford, Alfred Morris
WR. Antonio Brown, Alshon Jeffery, Jarvis Landry, Brandon LaFell, James Jones, Victor Cruz
TE. Antonio Gates, Julius Thomas
K. Chandler Catanzaro
D. Kansas City
IDP: Paul Posluszny

After several offers and counter-offers, on the table we have:


Option 1

Give: Charcandrick + Graham
Get: Landry + Gates + Langford

Option 2

Give: Charcandrick + Graham + Moncrief
Get: Landry + Gates + Langford + James Jones


Moncrief/Jones really only impacts both teams in week 11 (dealing with BYEs)


Thoughts on this trade?  Which option do you prefer?

Definitely don't do it. After this week West has a great chance to be your best player for the rest of the season. Graham is your best TE option and Gates is fragile. Its only a matter of time Langford becomes irrelevant, and that time is approaching fast. You already have Forte. Landry is Boom or bust. Jones' targets are gonna be small and inconsistent for the rest of the season. I dont like any of these options at all. I think those would be big time lose, lose trades for you. No way, don't do it.

With Woodhead, CWest, and Forte, I can only start 2 RBs.  I'm weak at WR and we start 3 WR.  


Landry is #10 WR in our league right now, hasn't had any game under double digits.


If I trade CWest, I can ride Woodhead (#4 scoring RB) and Forte (+Langford) for the ROS.  I would still have Hill + Vereen as depth.


Gates > Graham.  Gates is injury prone but has been getting an average of 11 targets per game.  Graham has been boom or bust all season.


You really think this trade is that bad?
