Drew Carroll, Stow, OH: I have Daunte Culpepper, Aaron Brooks, and David Carr at QB. I think that is a bit too much depth , and I think that Brooks would be good to move (he and Carr have similar potential but Brooks might be worth more in a trade). What WRs could bring good trade value in return for Brooks?

Engel: You indeed have room for flexibility, as Culpepper is durable, and Carr is an improving QB with a lot of upside. Brooks has been better overall than some might pereceive him to be, but there is a general "ho-hum" attitude towards him because he doesn't run for as many scores as some owners would want him to. Brooks is solid, though, and doesn't hurt fantasy leaguers too much. He also has a good receiving corps. You can get a respectable receiver such as Eric Moulds or Derrick Mason if the team you are targeting is quite thin at QB, possibly by adding another player in the deal if you need to. Or you can easily go for a receiver who has not produced well yet, but should improve, such as Koren Robinson or Laveranues Coles.
