Fantasy Football - Michael Turner for Steve Smith?

I was offered Michael Turner for Steve Smith in my 14 team fantasy league. We start 3 WR and 2 RB. My receivers are Larry Fitzgerald, Jerricho Cotchery and Steve Smith (starters) Vincent Jackson and Amani Toomer (bench). My running backs are Adrian Peterson - MIN, Fred Taylor (starters) Jonathon Stewart (bench).

Turner has put up huge early numbers and Steve Smith has only played one game but is one of the top WR every year. With Delhomme back, he's bound to have a huge year.

Looking for some advice...

Thanks

    you need steve smith at ur WR slot. ur backups arent good enough to give him up. adrian peterson is a great RB and the run game for the jaguars looks great and fred taylor will have a great season.

    ya turner is putting up great numbers but we still havent seen him much and teams are going to put their main focus on him from now on.

    Steve Smith is always a reliable receiver, but coming of an injury like his, he will not have the same numbers as his past years. Michael Turner and the Atlanta team have a relatively easy schedule this year, and his elusive back skills prove to be working more than the passing game. Stewart just lost the starting job this week again, and Michael Turner is better than Fred Taylor, who is losing his job to Maurice Jones-Drew. Go through in the trade and good luck this season

    AP and Michael Turner. Steve Smith is going against Nnamdi Asomugha, who is actually much better than DeAngelo Hall and QBs avoid throwing to Asomugha, that's why Hall got beat bad almost every week. So expect a great battle between Smith and Asomugha. Slaton is facing a tough D this week. AP and Turner have the better chance to score.

    You gotta take that one. Turner is a stud and Atlanta is rocking right now. Steve Smith is good...but there's big quarterback questions on that team. You can always scrounge up a receiver somewhere. You can't get a Michael Turner off waivers.

    Dont give up Turner. Peterson will get hurt and miss a few games. Turner is a stud. Smith is a stud but Turner will deliver every week

    That's a toughy.

    Steve Smith IS bound to have a good year, but i think turner will make up for whatever production you lose from steve smith.

    just imagine AP and Turner on your squad. and maybe you can offer a mojo owner fred taylor for a possible WR2 straight up.

    Steve Smith no question. he is hands down jake delhomme's favorite reciever. i guarantee u he leads your WR in fantasy points. Michael Turner has started off hot i agree but you dont need him, especially if you get points for returns cuz if you do i would definantly start jonathon stewart. but keep steve smith
