Davis is a great call. He's smoking right now, but anyone who can remember what they had for lunch knows he won't do it for long. I've been burned huge by this guy, and I wish he was mine to sell right now so I could make up for the gaping hole in my receiving core. (Burleson !+) Clayton :-P Driver :-? Booker %-6 )

Stephen Davis = Sell High, there's no way he lasts the season. And what better time to sell than after a 3 TD game against the Champs?

Just like there was no way he would ever come back from that injury?

Then after that, no way he would ever contribute this season?

Then after that, no way he would ever be ready to start week 1?

Then after that, no way he would put up good fantasy numbers coming off that injury?

Stephen Davis doubters are 0/4 so far, don't make the mistake of trading him to one of them unless you can get his real value out of them. Even now most are unwilling to give up much for him because people just have no faith in the guy anymore. If you want to unload Davis, wait until about week 7 when he's still in the top 5 in pts scored for RBs.

The best buy low right now (IMO) is Priest Holmes. People are totally buying into the notion that Priest/LJ are in the midst of a 50/50 split because their numbers are similar, yet carries wise it's still clear that Priest is the guy (40 carries vs. 18).

If Priest doesn't get knicked up and have to come out for a few plays with that shoulder stinger on Sunday then we're looking at 21 carries vs. 7 in the game and LJ with 35yds and no TDs.

The best part is that Priest owners seem disappointed with his 15pts/game he's putting up right now (which is actually more than LT or SA). I'll take 15p/g and run with it...

Depends on your scoring...I have LT in 2 leagues and his avg is exactly 15 per week right now.

All good points, but I still don't think he lasts the season. By sell high, I'm saying trade him for something of value that's a bit more stable than Davis.

I couldn't agree more with that particular buy low. That ship will right itself. As a Colts fan, I truly hope they continue to lose, but it's the Patriots, they will somehow find a way to turn things around.

As I've said in another thread there are some nice backs that are yet to post a 100 yard effort or a rushing TD:

A. Green, Jamal Lewis, Curtis Martin, Kevin Jones, Domanick Davis all qualify here. All texans (and by that I mean A. Johnson and DD) are going up from here on out IMO as their schedule is essentially cake.
ADMIN edit: please note that the overall sig limit is 12k - thanks!

I'd lay off Ahman Green, he has fumble problems and has not had a 100 yard game in the last 9 I believe. With a weaker line, thats bad... :-o
