Trade Analysis Wanted
I've been offered RGIII (Get) for Matt Ryan (Give) straight up.

I'm quite hesitant because I don't like the inconsistency that comes from all rookie quarterbacks (No matter how good they are) and I don't feel like RGIII is built to withstand the hits a mobile quarterback absorbs on a weekly basis (I feel he's more like Vick than Newton in terms of built and durability). I also don't have a backup QB for Ryan, and the waiver wire is pretty bare of anyone reliable.

Would like to hear what your guys' thoughts are on this.

It's a 10 team league, standard scoring.

    I think you have answered your own question here. I would stick with what you have got. I agree with your analysis of rookie QBs and RG3 in particular. Anyone can get hurt but RG3 seems to be more likely to. Stick.

    I did this trade in reverse (plus some RB switching) early in the season and have been happy to have Ryan ever since. I think especially without a backup QB, Ryan is more likely to stay healthy than RG3, who could get knocked out at any second, and if RG3 stops running (to keep him safe), Atlanta's wideouts are better than the Skins in a pass-only comparison.

    I would stick with Ryan, for all those reasons above. Plus, Ryan's bye week has passed and RG3 isn't playing this week.
