Another guy in my league has been hot after Ellington for the last couple of weeks and after losing Foster to IR he needs a RB badly. He offered me Joique Bell and Rishard Matthews for Mike Brown and Ellington. I'm not interested in this deal because I'd never play Matthews or Bell and Ellington could potentially be my Flex guy going forward if CJ doesn't get it together. But he has a few guys I like (Manning, Bush and Jordy) and I'm wondering if a counter would make sense. I'm in 1st with a 8-2 record and he's in 5th at 6-4. I don't necessarily think I need to make a trade but I'm always looking to improve my roster.
QB- P. Manning WR- J. Nelson, D. Moore, D. Bowe
RB- R. Bush, R. Jennings Flex- J. Bell
TE- Fleener K- N. Folk D- Cincy
Bench- Marvin Jones, K. Durham, Dennis Johnson, Manningham, M. Ingram, Rishard Matthews
Would a counter offer of Ellington and Shorts for Jordy and a throw-in (Ingram?) be worth looking into? Or should I politely pass?
