QB and RB conundrum
My current team:
10 Team Yahoo H2H keeper league (keep 6) year 2
starters in bold:
QB: RG3, Newton
WR: J. Nelson, Colston, Nicks, Maclin, T. Young
RB: Fred Jax, Dwyer, MJD, Ballard
TE: Daniels, Rudolph
As you can see I'm hurting big time at the RB position.
Here's my dilemma, I really like RG3 as my keeper QB, but i also know that I need to upgrade my RBs. Newton is not going to get me anything good on the trade market right now. But i think i do have an option to trade RG3 for Adrian Peterson. There will probably be some little pieces added from both teams, but that would be the base of the trade. Is AP worth it, or should i hold onto RG3 and just see what i can get for Newton (probably just a pick upgrade in next yrs draft). Would you be confident in having Newton as a starter in a keeper league?
Here's the AP owners team: (please think of a good trade using RG3 and AP for me as well if you can)
I know he likes Nicks and Jordy Nelson too, he wants to upgrade his WRs
QB: Dalton, Romo
WR: Cruz, Marshall, Moss, Jennings, Hixon
RB: Rice, Peterson, Matthews, Mendenhall
Thanks in advance for any advice

If I were you, I'd definitely be looking to deal a QB. You keep 6 players, and with your current roster both Newton and RG3 would be among those 6.
I suppose one important question is whether you think you've got a shot at winning this year. If so, giving up RG3 right now hurts. Newton hasn't done much, but I don't think I'd be giving up on his long-term prospects.
AP is an elite RB. He's the focal point of his offence. The only factors that make me hesitant about this trade are:
1. AP is 27. 2 more seasons and he'll be slowing down; and
2. RG3's stock is so high right now that you might be able to get more.
You could wait a few more weeks and see if Newton starts to turn things around. Or, you could counter now, but I'd suggest shopping RG3 a bit first.
My initial advice is to try to snag Brandon Marshall. Your receivers are pretty strong as is, but I personally think Marshall is an upgrade over Nicks. I realize people may not agree that its a huge upgrade, but I think Cutler and Marshall are going to put up very big numbers.
RG3 + Nicks + draft pick
Peterson + Marshall + Mendenhall (to cover the Dwyer situation for the rest of this year) + higher draft pick
Going into next year, your keepers would be:
Nelson, Colston, Marshall
Pretty strong I'd say. I guess it depends on whether you're ready to give up on Newton, and whether you think you can win in the next 2 years....because both Peterson and MJD are getting old (for NFL RBs).
Honestly, you can afford to wait it out for a few more weeks. AP has some tough defences ahead, and unless RG3 suddenly tanks, you'll be able to make the trade down the road. This would give you more time to assess Newton.
Anyway, good luck.
Please return the favor and give me your opinion. Here's my thread:
Basically I have 2 offers for AP. My fear is Vick getting yanked. One offer is Stafford+McGahee, the other is Newton+Matthews+Gates.
10-team Keeper. Everyone keeps 12 (last season - Bold) + 3 (players with less than 164 NHL games played -last season - Bold Italics). Points for G (2), A (2), PIM (.1), Hit (.1) SHP(1), W(4), SO(8) Must dress 4C, 4LW, 4RW, 6D, 1G
C - E. Staal, Tavares , Bergeron, Turris, Zibanejad, Granlund
LW - Kovalchuk, E. Kane, Pacioretty, Zetterberg Filpulla, Latendresse
RW - Iginla,Wheeler, Pominville, Tarasenko, Doan, Silfverberg
D - Karlsson, Phaneuf, Edler, Green, Kronwall, Pitkanen, Keith, Burns
G - Rinne, Schneider
My all time favourites:
I say yes he is worth it. Newton will turn things around with the new offensive approach, i have faith. AP is still one of the best rb's in the league. He may slow down after two years but in fantasy, it's best to look at your team in 3 year windows. If you can compete in the next 2 for championships, it's well worth the risk of a drop off in year 3.
