On the other hand, we pretty much know what to expect from Shaub.

That being said, all else equal Orton has the best remaining schedule. So if you're slightly sold on Orton, go with him. I can't see his numbers dropping too much because Denver will continue to throw the ball.

After second look, those schedules are almost polar opposites. If Orton stays on track, he'll put up huge numbers. I think the risk is worth the reward, and you're not totally screwed if Orton does fail and you're forced to use Ben.
What an awesome dilemma. I agree with epeddy's comments. Schaub has not been the 2009 Schaub. I have him in my 14-team league, so I'm biased toward wanting him to do well. Perhaps look at playoff matchups to decide it. I do know that Ben is at home in weeks 14-16 in a scheduling quirk.

Benson for Forte straight up?

Who do you like and is it close? I presently have Forte this week and im bye-heavy. My flex sucks (either driver vs NYJ or Hightower vs TB). Switching it up would improve it by a mile.

I also have a trade offer (offered to me) which was never cancelled and could still be accepted.... Forte for Wayne straight up

My current team :

Big ben, Schaub
Andre, Wallace, Smith(NYG), Driver, Knox
Charles, Forte, McFadden, Jacobs, Hightower
Witten
Prater
Seattle and NYJ

What's best for me?

I'd make the Benson for Forte trade. Forte has a strong upside but is very inconsistent. Benson will give you better stability. I wouldn't trade for Wayne, since you'd be giving up RB depth. With injury-prone McFadden and Jacobs and Hightower who just plain sucks you need all the backs you can get.

I'm offering this: orton, lynch, welker (have ben and Fitzpatrick)
I want: McCoy, gaffney

Any opinions? Gaffney/dez would be a backup wr. Have smith (nyg) and Wayne as starte.

Unless he's totally desperate for QB why would he want to get raped like that?

He lost romo, is Starting kitna. His bigger problem is that he is starting sproles/McGahee.

Is the trade that one sided?

His team sucks. He may bite but IMO yeah that's a fairly one sided deal. Lynch sucks and Welker isn't the reciever he used to be.
