Engel's Mailbag: Trade and Lineup Advice

Phil (Seattle): I have a trade on the table. I receive Tom Brady, Edgerrin James, and Jason Witten in exchange for Carson Palmer, Adrian Peterson, and Wes Welker. Do I pull the trigger?

Engel: Anytime you can get Brady, who will be the MVP in many fantasy leagues, you have to think twice. The offer also includes Witten, easily an elite tight end. I hate to see you give up Peterson, but to get something you have to give up something of quality as well. As long as you can plug in another good starter in Welker's place and really need Witten, I say go ahead and do it. I want Brady more than any other player in fantasy football right now, and in most leagues, he's not available for a trade. Get him before the other guy starts thinking twice.
