I was thinking the same thing today... my wife drafted (yes, my wife plays in my fantasy football league) Manning and has watched Carson Palmer outperform him on her bench. Manning may still be worth a running back whose been off to an average start and so trading him may actually be a sell while people are still prospecting on him kind of value. To me, Manning only has a "buy low" quality about him if you're playing in a yahoo league with a bunch of 12 year olds who trade just to trade.
Otherwise, Manning being in trades will simply be the result of prospecting, but we shouldn't see any Manning for Isaac Bruce and Deshaun Foster type deals.
The same can be said for Curtis Martin... is he a buy low candidate, or a sell-while-he-still-has-value candidate? CuMar owners like me are worried for a reason.
