Should I trade Matt Forte for Steve Slaton?
So I am in a 12 person league and it is very deep. There is essentially no one available on the free agent list at all. We just finished week 9 and my team is the following: QB: Matt Schaub RB: Matt Forte RB: Jamaal Charles WR/RB: Mike Wallace WR: Reggie Wayne WR: Marques Colston TE: Jason Witten DEF: Saints K: John Carney Bench: March Sanchez, Bears DEF, Pierre Garcon, Johnny Knox, Darren Sproles, Willie Parker, Larry Johnson I am currently 4th but if I want any chance at winning this I need an upgrade at running back. I am in trade talks with another guy whose team is: QB: Drew Brees RB: Steve Slaton RB: Marshawn Lynch WR/RB: Ryan Grant WR: Steve Smith WR: Bernard Berrian TE: Jeremy Shockey DEF: Cardinals K: Lawrence Tynes Bench: Ryan Moats, Kevin Walter, Julius Jones, Donald Brown, Donnie Avery, Bengals DEF, Mark Clayton My ideal situation would be to get a RB without giving up Wayne, Colston, or Forte but I don’t know if that’s possible. I also know that Slaton lost his starting job last week but could be getting it back (that is still up in the air). Also, Forte has been garbage for me this season. All that being said, he has officially offered me Steve Slaton and Ryan Moats for Matt Forte. Other trades that he verbally offered included Matt Forte/Jamaal Charles for Steve Slaton/Julius Jones and Matt Forte/Jason Witten for Steven Slaton/Jeremy Shockey. Do any of these trades seem like I will be getting the better end? Forte has been trash and if Slaton is getting the carries he has been so much more effective that Forte. Or maybe you see another trade option that I could throw out there. Anything helps. Thanks!

Dude, Slaton got demoted to 2nd string at Houston Ryn Moats is the starter, M. Forte is a solid runner, be patient with him, he will get his carrie and yardage up, do not make this trade, Slaton is not going to see many more cqrries unless Moats goes down for the Texans.

Steve Slaton is now 2nd string Ryan Moats starts so no decline the trade.
