Trade Cobb/Harvin/Julio Jones for Jamaal Charles?
I have the opportunity to trade one of my receivers for Charles. Need to win the next two games, so performing in those two games is a premium for me. Basically, either the third receiver of that group, or Charles would be my flex (unless I decided to start Marcel Reese instead). Is it worth trading one of my WRs for Charles, and if so, which one?

In my league we start 2 RBs, 2 WRs, and a Flex.

I have:
RB: Lynch, Morris, McFadden/Reese, Larod Stephens-Howling, Ingram
WR: Julio Jones, Harvin, Cobb, Hartline, Danario Alexander

Any thoughts would be really appreciated!

    Dude, I like your team, but if you're going to trade for Charles, I would give up Jones. The Harvin, then cobb. Cobb is on fire and not slowing down..

    Agreed. Going to keep Cobb for sure. I guess the main question becomes whether I adding Charles as a flex is a big upgrade over whoever I would chose from Reese/LSH/3rd WR based on matchups. Charles has the chance to explode but can't decide how big an upgrade he is over those guys . . .

    JK your fine at running back you are weak at WR

    Interesting. But if I'm looking to have the best starting lineup, you don't think that Charles would be an upgrade over whichever WR (or Reese) I would start at flex?

    Agreed - giving up way too much. Cobb alone is going to do some damage the rest of the season.

    Sorry, just to clarify, I would only have to give up one of the WRs, not all 3. I was just asking which of the 3 I should give up (i.e. which two do I want to keep for the rest of the season) or whether I should keep all three and start the third at flex instead of Charles. Thoughts?

    Hell NO!! giving up way too Much!!! Way too much! Julio/Charles or Cobb Charles is more fair, but I wouldn't want to get rid of Cobb now that Jordy is back.

    that makes more sense.. I think then I may give up Jones,.. Harvin is like Cobb with more upside being he is their #1 WR

    True, plus he's hurt and I need him to perform this week. Do you think Charles is enough of an upgrade to be worth doing the deal?

    I don't know.. I just don't understand how KC is so bad with the talent they have on offensive side of ball.. Talent wise, Charles is easily enough of a upgrade.. but his team as a whole is a different story.. I would honestly look for a RB on a better team.
