    My WR core currently consists of:

    AJ Green
    Jeremy Maclin
    Steve Smith Sr.
    Martavis Bryant

    My TE's are:

    Julius Thomas
    Charles Clay

    Both my TE's are on bye and I have an opportunity to grab Gary Barnidge. I originally offered Jeremy Maclin, but the other guy doesn't seem too receptive. Is Barnidge worth Bryant? The Pittsburgh offense is going to light up again once Big Ben is back.

    What is your starting lineup 2WR/1Flex?

    I've flipped back and forth on what I would do. Barnidge is currently 1st in point (PPR) for TE's. I think you would have to grab another depth WR somewhere since Maclin just went down with a concussion. He might miss a few weeks.

    Ya, it's 2WR and 1 Flex.

    I've got a couple weeks before anymore WR byes so I figured if I keep Maclin, he should be fine by then. But man, it's hard to give up Bryant.

    I'm gonna need more TE production since my RB core took a hit. Things were starting to come together with both Arian Foster and Lamar Miller, but obviously the injury Gods had other plans. Now I have to move Carlos Hyde back into a starting spot and that 49'ers offense is in dire straights.

    Another option is if Ebron is available waiver claim him immediately

    Ebron like he said or if you want to take a shot on Ladarius Green (Gates has a sprained mcl) that could be a better option then trading a good wr.

    Green is available, but Ebron is not. I'm looking at more than just a 1 week thing though. I'm not sold on Julius Thomas and I absolutely have to get more production out of that spot now that I'm weaker at the RB position. Barnidge seems like the only guy that offense throws to.

    That depends how you view barnidge then. Eventually teams are going to scheme to stop him. Will he go back to being a 31 year old journeyman TE at that point? If the answer is no, you make the deal. Personally I'm still not a believer. I'd rather take my chances on Green for a week or two and keep rotating players based on match ups.

    WR depth is usually pretty easy to pickup. If I needed a TE, I'd trade Bryant easily for Barnidge.

    You obviously don't play in my league. 3 WR plus a HB/WR/TE position, and twelve teams.
