In need of a Week 3 review

Our road trip to South Carolina can officially be considered a success. Friends were seen, wedding merriment was had, and our son toddled over every inch of the hotel lobby and then some...but not a whole lot of football was watched since we were on the road during basically all of yesterday's games. So I'm in need of some game recaps, and if you are, too, you've come to the right place. I've got several waiver wire articles for you also, so let's have at it.

Torrey Smith will be a huge pickup. Wonder how much buyers remorse thomas jones bidders have.

Would you do this trade?
Give: Sam Bradford and Arian Foster
Get: Michael Vick and Brandon Jacobs

Obviously, the news about Vick's hand not being broken certainly makes this a little better. I'm looking for a boost in the QB 2 slot since my league starts 2 QBs. My QB 1 is Drew Brees but my QB 2 is Freeman who looks more like a QB 3 to me, and Bradford just doesnt seem to have the tools to put up convincing numbers. Not to mention that Arian Foster is becoming a huge liability with that hamstring because even if he gets healthy enough to play, he'll probably platoon with Ben Tate. I'm already good on RBs with MJD, Best, and Sproles, so I can live without Jacobs, but I'm really after Vick since I feel the combo of Brees/Vick will be an unstoppable QB tandem.

Current RBs: MJD, Deangelo Williams, Felix Jones, Green-Ellis, Marshwan Lynch

Right now, Williams and Green-Ellis aren't doing so good and Lynch has been in Least Mode. Would you dump one (which one?) to get Benard Scott?

Glenn, absolutely make that trade.
Anonymous, trade Williams for Scott...neither of them are worth much but Scott has a lot more upside.

Thanks. What about this trade in a different league?

Give: Cam Newton, Dexter McCluster, and LeGarrette Blount
Get: Philip Rivers, Frank Gore, and either DeSean Jackson or Jordy Nelson. (All of which minus Nelson were put on the trading block)

I desperately need a WR since I lost Kenny Britt and have to start McCluster as a WR alongside Wes Welker and Dwayne Bowe. I'm gonna try to pick up Denarius Moore for Britt when he clears waivers, but I need a solid 3rd WR in either Jackson or Nelson. I'd also like to get rid of a liability in Blount who probably wont see any action in my lineup when I have MJD, Fred Jackson, and Tim Hightower all outperforming him. Frank Gore probably won't be started as much either, but I'm not impressed with Blount. I can live with dropping Gore and doing a 3 for 2 deal also.
