I'm surprised everybody seems to agree with this assumption. He plays New Orleans next, and then Oakland again, so he'll have a couple more good weeks but after that, I wouldn't trust him further than I could throw him. Adding McCardell helps, btu I don't think he'll be able to get away with having his TE as his #1 receiver for the rest of the year. I hope he does though, because I have Gates on my main team ;-D
Why, Gates is a bonafide stud. Trent Green does it all the time.


Is Trent Green a top 10 QB?

Brees had a great week, and he's closing in on top 10, but not yet IMO.

Mad B,

while I definitely agree that the Top 10 is an ever-fluxuating group, and that he is preforming so well because he has a young QB ready to replace him, I also feel compelled to add that Brees is also a young QB, and he is just beginning to develop. Whichever team is lucky enough to get Brees is getting a d@mn good QB, with a lot of potential. I believe Brees has more upside than what he's showing so far.

Once he gets out of Marty Ball... maybe plays for a team with some decent QB protection (Kansas City/Green Bay?), he could grow into a stud uttered in the same breath as McNair (last year's McNair...) or Hasslebeck. In reality, as far as complete QBs go (and I know I'll get it for this one), the Chargers definitely got the better end of the Vick/Tomlinson deal, because Brees was still open at QB at the first pick of the 2nd. And yes, I believe Brees will be a bigger stud than Rockem Socken Vick in years to come...

He has 6 TD's in the past 3. He did next to nothing against Carolina and Atlanta.

I made a trade for him in my league. No biggy, I just gave up McCardell who I had picked up off of waivers a couple of weeks back.

If you look at his schedule, in the next 6 weeks he's got the Saints, Oakland again, and the Chiefs for easy points. He also has a BYE, Denver and Tampa for probably crappy points.

But.......during the ever so crucial play-off weeks 15, 16, and 17, he plays against the Browns, the Colts, and Kansas City again.

I think he's a great pick-up if you can get him cheap.

The schedule is exactly why I grabbed him FFCrazy. Granted anything can happen but if LT2 gets healthy, they should be able to continue to roll and his numbers should stay at least around the 225 yd. 2 TD range. McCardell was a very nice pickup for this team. He is a legitimate WR threat that they really didn't have. I don't know that I've seen a guy like him come in and contribute like he has to a team so soon after a trade.

I think this is a crazy stat from Brees this week:
He had more TDs than incompletions (5 to 3)
as far as I can tell that hasn't been done before in the NFL (the closest thing I can find is Simms in the SB with 3 to 3)
