Fantasy Team Name
The Chosen Team
My roster is pretty injury ridden right now. Team is a double size roster. My TE and RBs have been pretty weak. Starting RBs are Lacy, Ben Tate, Steven Jackson and Johnathan Stewart. Starting TEs are Heath Miller and Kelce. On my injured bench I have Monte Ball and Ryan Mathews who I have been holding on to. I had Donald Brown as the backup to Mathews but he flopped. I am considering trading Mathews and Eddie Royal (both on my bench currently) for Mark Ingram and Jared Cook. Cook is no super star but he has been decent with Austin Davis at QB for the Rams. Both players would start immediately for me. Ingram also has a very favorable playoff schedule. I am in last place right (8/8) and need to get up to 6th to make the playoffs. I think I need to take the deal because I cant bank on Mathews who might be out until after his bye. My WRs have been decent with Dez, Edlemen, Kelvin Benjamin, Colston, and Fitz (might finally be back with the right QB at the helm). Also picked up and stashed Devante Adams for good measure. Thoughts?Full roster below for your reference
QBs: Brees, Romo
WR: Dez, Edlemen, Fitz, Benjamin
RB: Lacy, Ben Tate, Steven Jackson and Johnathan Stewart
TE: Miller and Kelce
Def: Denver & SD
K: Prater, Shayne Graham
Andy Dalton, Storm Johnson, Sankey, Mathews, Ball, Donald Brown, Colston, Josh Hill, Devante Adams Cody Parky

Fantasy Football Trade Analysis -
Thank you for using our fantasy football trade analyzer! You email sounds so defeated! You've got a nice team just had bad luck. I'd go for that deal in a heartbeat. Ingram has a tough matchup this week at Detroit but it does ease up as we carry on through the season. He'll be a nice compliment to your current running backs. I wouldn't be so anoint Jared Cook your starter, I'd roll with Kelce if I were you.
Best of luck in week 7! Drop by anytime or free fantasy football trade advice!

Would you drop Mark Ingram to pick up T.O.?
Thank you for writing in. Running back might be the thinnest position this season. Without seeing your entire roster I would recommend hanging onto Mark Ingram. The back field in New Orleans is a bit crowded but all it takes an injury or two and you suddenly have a coveted fantasy football feature running back. Ingram has too much skill and is on far too potent of an offense to release for a guy like Terrell Owens. Owens may have one more season left in the tank but the current Seattle passing attack is pedestrian at best. You will be able to find similar productivity on the waiver wire any given week. Both players have upside but both are kind of lottery tickets. When taking a gamble I bet on the running backs 9 times out of 10.
