With Indianapolis using their defense and running game to control the ball this year, does R. Wayne have any value? Do you think he is going to turn things around? I’m wondering if he is a good buy low candidate, or if he is waiver wire material?

He's definitely not WW material, but you might be able get him cheap. Most people haven't lost faith in the Indy O just yet, so if can get him cheaply go for it.

His price, as well as Marvin Harrison's price should be way down by now. If you're a gambling man, and want to bet on Wayne having a really bad (like <50 yards no TDs) day against Tennessee, then his price should be an absolute steal.

What do you think a good price would be for buying Marvelous right now? I didn't realize how bad his season has been so far, he might be the BEST buy low guy at the moment.

Depends on lots of things.

- He was overrated as a 2nd rd pick and should have only come in as the 5th best fantasy WR even before the season's slow start. He's been declining statistically for a few years now.

- Would you trade him for guys ranked lower than him who could easily continue to outperform him:
SSmith
Ward
JSmith
DJax

or do you think his pricetag has fallen so far that you can get him for Boldin, Bennett, Clayton, Driver, Coles, etc...

If I had him, I would take Ward, D-Jax or Steve Smith for him but I don't know if I would take any of the others listed. Statistically he may be worth it, but I think his name alone can get you a better deal.

Most people think Marvin will bounce back, and that's a pretty safe bet, so I don't think you are going to get too many people willing to deal him for drastically low prices....

ALTHOUGH, he did get traded straight up for Antonio Gates in one of my leagues, recently....

Personally, if I had Willie Parker right now, I might be trying to work a deal for Marvin Harrison....

You might be able to put together a deal like this:

Harrison and Kevin Jones

for

Santana Moss and Willie Parker

In my mind, this would be a classic "sell high / buy low" move that could pay big dividends by the end of the year....

I just traded away Stephen Davis and Nate Burleson for Willie Parker and Reggie Wayne.

My backfield is stacked so I probably would never have used Davis and won't use Parker. So, for me it was basically Burleson for Wayne.

Indianapolis has a nice stretch here against some really weak defenses so I am hoping that Wayne puts together a few nice weeks and I can move him for better value. Indy does finish the season against SD and Seattle so he could be pretty good in the playoffs.

well, i've offered fwp for wayne...turned down. then i offered thomas jones for wayne...turned down. now, this just could be a stubborn owner, but to me, i'm taking from this that his value is still pretty high. i'm supposing this is residual from last year's performance.
