If it's for your team in the signature I would. You can start AP, Charles, sprinkled in with Martin if he bounces back. You have WR locked down. If I were you my next move would be to try and package Wilson and Kaepernick as part of a deal to get Luck.

I can't think of any league or any team (re-build or otherwise) where I would rather have 1.1 and Ellington. Take Charles every single time!

In current ADPs, Jamaal Charles is the 6th player taken overall.

Sammy Watkins (1.01) is the 24th. Ellington is the 50th.

I think you're getting pretty great value here, so take it.

Give me the proven elite option over a rookie that may be elite and another young player that may be a good RB2

I think what everyone is saying makes sense....do the deal and get Charles.

You don't deal the 1.01 for a depreciating asset, you just don't. You will be unhappy in 12 months if you do this move.

I think "You don't pass on a current elite fantasy asset for a rookie who has proven nothing yet" is a better rule to live by.

Take Charles and turn him into a big 6 WR then. Problem solved.

Of course you deal for depreciating assets. I'll take a falling stock of Apple vs. a rising stock of Research in motion (blackberry) anyday. If you're going to equate football to assets then you have to know that the price of a stock is only worth what's it value is at the present time and use that for advantages in trades. Don't pay attention to the rise and fall, just buy the money makers and bail when you see a profit.

You act like that is easy to do? What owner is dealing one of the big 6 for Charles? Any who are, are severely mistaken

Is there risk involved? Sure. But if you aren't willing to take risks, you shouldn't be playing this game. Take Evans or Watkins at 1.01, both will be top 3 round startup picks in 2015 IMO and keep Ellington who is a decent talent in his own right.

Risk should only be purchased at a reduced rate. I've seen Charles go off the board as the first RB in startups ahead of other top six wideouts. His value is determined by that market. So far this offseason I've seen people move Forte for Gordon, McCoy for AJG, Martin for Jeffery, Gio for Julio, etc. The market exists. You have to have the foresight to capitalize. Don't think that every player on your roster is there forever due to the fact that this is dynasty. You'll be stuck in a constant loop of chasing potential.
