Trade proposed to me, what do I do?

Acquiring - AJ Green, Andre Ellington
Relinquishing - Victor Cruz, Gio Bernard, Jermichael Finley

Rest of Team
TE - Julius Thomas
RB - Trent Richardson, Alfred Morris, Joique Bell
WR - Vincent Jackson, Torrey Smith, Kenbrell Thompkins, Deandre Hopkins

Start 2 RB, 2 WR, with a RB/WR flex only - 1 point per reception, bonuses for long TD's and yardage (100, 150, 200)

So basically I swap AJ Green for Victor Cruz in my starting lineup and give up some bench depth (though Ellington is starting to really eat into Mendenhall's carries and may be the outright starter soon).  

I think I should do it as I have more confidence in Green than Cruz, but it is close.  Thoughts?

Green and Cruz are a wash. Finley is waiver bait, so it's Ellington for Bernard and I'd do that in a heartbeat.

I hate oblong trades like this 3 for 2 nonsense

I'd prefer Bernard to Ellington.  I'd pass on this.

I passed.  Given Richardson's struggles since the trade to Indy, I actually am starting Bernard this week over Richardson.

I have Randall Cobb (out for a while), need to start 3 WRs, and have Jennings, Wallace, Moore, Floyd, Wright...WR3 types.  I have T. Gonzalez and Heath Miller...with Miller getting a lot of targets when he plays, I'm considering offering Tony Gonzalez for Torrey Smith, or someone of that mold...thoughts?

So do I. I read it wrong.

I think I am set for rest of season with (normal starters in bold):
QB: Drew Brees, Alex Smith (backup for bye week)
RB: Ray Rice, Darren Sproles, Reggie Bush, Jaquizz Rodgers
WR: Alshon Jeffrey, Justin Blackmon, Larry Fitzgerald, Donnie Avery, Danny Amendola, Greg Jennings
TE: Tony Gonzalez
K: Ryan Succop
D: KC
3WR, No flex, No Defensive Player. We are 4-2 and I figure have a great shot at the playoffs. 
Thoughts?

Oh yeah, and what position should I get for Smith on the Waiver Wire? Thoughts?

I ended up just trading Finley for Ellington.  Not sure how much I will use Ellington but I'd rather have a quality RB on my bench over a quality TE.  Just so many more potential usage opportunities.
