    Hoping one of you guys can guide me. 12 team PPR.

    I would trade Doug Martin, Hartline, and Antonio gates for Brandon Marshall and Frank Gore.

    Leaving me with Andrew Luck, Gore, CJ3k, and the three headed BEAST of Megatron, Marshall, and Larry Fitz. Would you guys pull trigger or stick with Doug?

    I'd pull the trigger on that.

    You'll be hurting at RB and you already have very good WR corps. How did you get megaton and Martin in a 12 man league, exactly?

    auction keeper league. Had martin last year for super cheap. Splooged all over and snagged megatron and Fitz this time around.

    I guess I'm just not sold on martin being superstar this year while marshall normally brings the beast mode every game and gore is just solid.

    I'd pull the trigger as well. Although full disclosure, I tend to think Martin is overrated and is going to disappoint a lot of folks this season. Couldn't believe he was ranked as the #2 overall fantasy player this year. I avoided him in all leagues (considering where you had to draft him).

    I think Martin and Gore end up with numbers not too far off from each other. While the difference between Marshall and Hartline should be much more substantial. And I'd gladly throw Gates in there as he's a shell of his former self. He'll may have a couple multi-TD games this season, but for the most part I think you should probably be able to find someone in FA to match or come close to his production.

    Don't knee jerk dump Martin after 1 game. That's my advice. If you got him dirt cheap last year you likely got the steal if the draft
