I need to make a trade involving at least one RB1/2. Currently my RB situation is:
Matt Breida, Kenyan Drake, Jalen Richard, Corey Clement
Good news is my receivers are stacked: AB, Keenan Allen, Golden Tate, John Brown, Tyler Boyd, Corey Davis, Travis Kelce.
I feel like I have a few backs who could potentially take on a big role, but no one I can really feel confident in.
Any ideas on some good trade targets, and who I can give up? I’ve tried countless trades only to be denied. But maybe I just need a little help thinking outside the box

Is this redraft? I'd be looking to package Brown + any of: Tate/Boyd/Corey Davis to upgrade. RBs to target: Kamara, CMC. You could aim slightly lower and try to snag a guy like Tevin/ Dion if the price is John Brown straight up.
Who's on the waiver wire?

Im hurting in some places. I can start guys like doug martin kenjon barner trenton cannon or ronald jones...and because u never know about the pats and they can keep mum through saturday with the Monday game...i wonder if i should be going trenton here...

Yes it’s a redraft. Actually just acquired Joe Mixon for Golden Tate, John Brown, and... (this one stung a bit last night)... Kenyan Drake. I may have given up a lot, but both WR’s I gave up were at best flex plays in my lineup. Not even an hour after that trade, I was offered Shady and Amari Cooper for Tyler Boyd and I took it. Maybe a little risky, but I don’t think either players will be as cheap as they are now. What do y’all think?

I’d imagine it’s too late to pick up Jalen Richard, but if he’s still available, I’d snatch him up. If not, keep a close eye on the Bucs backfield. If Barber can’t go, this may be the week we see Ronald Jones take over the backfield and never look back. Barber’s been horrible all year, so I don’t see the Bucs rushing him back.
None of these options I feel very confident in. So maybe you could seek out a trade for an RB on someone else’s bench.

@matthanna13 I like the moves. Hopefully it pans out. It's always a bummer seeing your RB blow up on an island game, but hopefully Mixon is the stronger ROS option.
@JollyG804 I'd absolutely start Trenton cannon this week.

@hrr5010 Curious about the hype around Cannon this week. Sure he’ll likely see the majority of passing down work, but nothing about the Jets offense against the Bears this week screams upside.

He's more of a plug and play kinda guy if you have him and your RBs are trash. It's a supremely desperate play. I'd prefer RoJo if Barber is declared out, but currently Barber is questionable. I prefer Barber to Doug/Barner and I wish we had clarity on RoJo. I love your Richard call btw, and he's a guy I'm starting in a bunch of leagues.
so Trenton cannon is basically a one week fill in so you don't take a 0 at the spot. If you're supremely lucky, he winds up in the EZ. Last week with MelGo as a last second scratch, I was forced into picking up and starting an RB. knowing that WAS WRs were banged up and CT was a scratch, I rolled the dice on Kapri Bibbs (yeeesh). I lucked out though since he scored a TD.

Depending on Breida status I’ll be choose between Mosert and Cannon this week. I’m reasonably comfortable with either due to their potential roles with nice matchups/game scripts.
