Default Potential Big Trade, involves me giving up Peyton ... would like advice

12-team PPR, 6 pts for all TDs, 1 pt for 50 yds passing, 1 pt for 20 yds rushing/receiving ... here's what I've got:

QB - Peyton Manning
WR - Calvin Johnson
WR - Justin Blackmon
RB - Knowshon Moreno
TE - Jason Witten
W/T - Terrance Williams
W/R - Fred Jackson
K - Garrett Hartley
DEF - Kansas City
BN - Tony Romo
BN - Giovani Bernard
BN - Maurice Jones-Drew
BN - DeAndre Hopkins
BN - Tavon Austin
IR - Julio Jones

As you might guess, I am near the top, but I just lost Julio and my WR core is now very weak overall -- Calvin is hurting, and I'm not ready to depend on Blackmon as a WR2 just yet. I've got Romo riding the bench at 23 points per game, so I either need to try and trade him for a decent WR2 (tough task, Romo is Romo), or I need to trade Peyton and improve the rest of the team, and ... ugh ... hope that Romo will continue his success.

So, here's a trade that I informally proposed. Would like your advice please.


I give: Peyton Manning, DeAndre Hopkins, Fred Jackson

I get: Philip Rivers, Brandon Marshall, Julius Thomas



He also has Russell Wilson, Wes Welker, Mike Wallace, Charles Clay, and Heath Miller. His RB core is weak (Lynch, then McFadden), and he has expressed interest in Jackson (a sell-high if there ever was one).

Thoughts? Am I asking for too much (even for Peyton), or not enough? Or is it baby-bear just right?

Thanks for your help.

Grant

I think it's just right. Rivers has thrown 400+ yards in every game so far.

Thanks ... I wish I could add in a slightly better receiver, but I'd really like to keep Blackmon or not do the trade at all.

Plan is to balance Rivers and Romo based on matchups.

FWIW, I am planning to snag Percy Harvin off of waivers tomorrow.

He said it was too much, would probably want Knowshon instead of Hopkins. Would leave me with Bernard as my primary RB, with the chance to snag Brandon Jacobs off of waivers next week I guess.
