Which top-10 PPR RB can I afford to trade away? (1 Viewer)

I'm 9-0, so playoffs are a lock. I've been carried by my RBs & Thielen. I'm desperate for a WR this week, and #2 WR going forward....

12-team PPR
QB: Rodgers, Trubisky
RB: Barkley, Conner, White, McCaffrey
WR: Theilen, Baldwin, MVS, Cobb, ARob, DJ Moore
TE: Kittle, Doyle
K: Lutz
DST: Streaming

QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, Flex, K, DST

Which of those 4 would you trade to get either another WR1, or maybe a pair of WR2s? Can I survive with Baldwin, MVS, ARob (when healthy)?

Here are their match-ups.

Conner        CAR    @JAX    @DEN    LAC    @OAK    NE    @NO
Barkley        @SF    TB    @PHI    CHI    @WAS    TEN    IND
White        @TEN    BYE    @NYJ    MIN    @MIA    @PIT    BUF
McCaffrey    @PIT    @DET    SEA    @TB    @CLE    NO    ATL

Thoughts on each:
Conner: Le'Veon cloud, slightly reduced usage when/if he returns
Barkley: Rookie, Eli gets benched maybe, defenses start focusing on him
White: Michel returning, Gronk may start producing, Belichick, bye week 11
McCaffrey: High usage, injury? Some fluky production to this point

The #2 team has both Hill and Woods and is stacked, but mostly with KC & Ram players (Mahomes, Kelce, Gurley, Hill, Woods) so is decimated week 12. They also have Mack, Thompson, Dez Bryant, Henry

Any thoughts on 1 - if I were to trade a RB for a WR, which RB would hurt me less? I'm leaning White, but like his playoff schedule.

I can't believe I am saying this, but assuming you need to make this move NOW... I would move Conner. The other 3 seem like RB1 locks. Conner may be as well, but the "cloud" as you said is there and his value may change drastically sooner than later.
