    No. You are giving up 3 useful players for 3 marginal backups. Even if McKinnon + Murray = Dalvin Cook you can't combine them into 1. The logic says this is not optimal.

    This isn't monopoly.

    No, I wouldnt do it, those are 3 backup RBs, you could use Murray now, I would say no

    Im in a 14 team league, and everybody got backup QBs, so there are few good options:
    Case Keenum ( if Bradford doesnt play)
    Deshone Kizer vs jets
    Brian Hoyer @IND
    Jay Cutler vs TEN
    EJ Manuel vs BAL

    So the best two options are the one I already posted, Flacco or Brissett

    I would be the one getting Murray.

    As for your QB situatuon my sources have Brissett several spots above Flacco.

    Are you assuming an RB by committee in minny? I had Cook and tend to think that for RB production, system/O line is a bigger factor than the RB himself.

    Murray has more appeal in a standard league as he is a bigger back and will probably be in on short yardage TD chances.

    McKinnon will see carries too and they will likely cannibalize each other's production.

    I liken it to a poor man's Gillislee / James White situation.

    I wouldn't make the trade. You are trading away the two best RBs on the trade, Coleman and Johnson for three RBs that were all waiver RBs. Latavius Murray may even be already hurt, and even when he is well he may only share the MIN RB job.

    I disagree, I'd say your best possibilities are Hoyer and Brissett and I'd be tempted to go with Hoyer. Flacco has been a mess this year and must be still hurt. Brissett has been improving and has running abilities so I can also see going that direction.

    update: just checked IND and SF injury reports... now leaning Brissett over Hoyer.

    This, 2 of those guys he would be trading for are still free agents in my 12 person league. I would probably take all 3 of those running back over all 3 he would be tradin for

    12 team standard league and I have questions on a few of my spots:

    QB: Wentz vs Arizona OR Stafford vs Carolina

    RB1: J. Howard

    RB2: E. Lacy vs LAR, T. West vs OAK, J. Williams vs DAL, T. Cohen vs MIN

    WR1: A. Brown

    WR2: D. Hopkins

    FLEX: E. Lacy vs LAR, T. West vs OAK, J. Williams vs DAL, T. Cohen vs MIN, D. Adams vs DAL, J. Landry vs TEN

    I would go with Stafford, Tarik Cohen, and Davante Adams, I dont trust Eddie Lacy now, until I see a better production from him, Adams is a good play against an injured cowboys secondary.

    I MUST cut one of these guys loose in the AM, who should it be?

    Brandon Marshall or Martellus Bennet?

    Wentz, Cohen (West is droppable, Lacy and rawls will share with McKisk), Jones won GB fill-in for Montgomery), Adams at flex.

    btw, I won the waiver claim on Davante Adams. Also grabbed Crowell. Starting Adams at Flex over Jeffery, K. Benjamin and Crowell, though stranegly tempted to play Crowell...

    Adding Adams was a lifesaver, as I lost OBJ (8 weeks minimum, likely out season) and Charles Clay today. Confusing reports on whether OBJ will go right to surgery on this, I may need that to happen to be able to replace him since he was a first round pick. May have to get creative, drop Crowell and maybe add someone with huge upside like Corey Davis, Kenny Golladay or Mike Williams. Or be a bit more conservative and go for John Brown, Tyler Lockett, or ...

    I think I would pick up Corey Davis. I will be doing the same. Seeing as I drafted Sammy Watkins and Terrell Pryor.

    I'm 3-2 and had the highest score in the league today. So those along with Jay Ajayi can suck it haha
