Buy Low - Sell High

Postby mrjandro » Wed Oct 12, 2005 11:16 am

Who's your Buy Low and Sell Hight guy this week?

Buy Low: Gonzo - Roaf is back. Gonzo's not going to have to be blocking as much and has always been a slot starter Fantasy wise.

Sell High: Caddy - banged up. Pittman has been doing okay and his foot is all banged up. I think he's still a top 10 back. But if you're looking to upgrade at WR or QB, he would be good to use for a top tier guy.

Who else??

Joe Horn is the buy low of the week, IMO....

With Deuce out, someone's gonna have to pick up the slack, and I think it'll be Horn....

Careful Plinds. Joe is a guy who admitted last week that he was so hurt he wouldn't be as good as the other guys on the field. The other guys who couldn't do anything on a packers secondary. I think horn is majorly banged up and will be bad for another few weeks. My guess is the entire NO offense suffers. Maybe the TE's do well.

My buy low: The chiefs Offense. Priest, LJ, Trent Green, Gonzo, Kennison, whatever. Except Samie Parker, I think he's not gonna do anything the rest of the year.

Sell High: TO, Donovan McNabb if you can. They're not that high after a bad game, but I think they are in trouble. Donovan is hurting a lot.
ADMIN edit: please note that the overall sig limit is 12k - thanks!

Yep Burl and Wayne, just traded Ricky Williams for Wayne.

Some say Andre Johnson if he is free on the WW.

I got so fed up I am a victim and dropped Roy and Clayton.


My top Buy lows is Engram.

Just picked him up after another guy dropped him, sure he will be out for another week or 2, but as of today Jackson's case is now 6+ weeks instead of 4-6. Jackson may need another minor surgury, it turned out torn worse than they thought.

That leaves Engram to be #1 wr for 4+ weeks when he returns.

Let me pile on the Engram bandwagon here because I think Alkoholik is completely right.

For the sake of argument, say Engram is SO injured that he misses the next two weeks against Houston and Dallas and then the 'Hawks go into their bye in week 8...

If DJax is out 6 weeks, minimum, then Engram gets the bye and becomes the #1 wide receiver against:

week 9: @ Arizona
week 10: vs. St. Louis
week 11: @ San Fran

Its nice to play in the NFC west... the 2nd worst division in football!

Curtis Martin. I doubt he'll have a 2 TD game again all year.

Alk - no love for Jurevicious?

This is an old argument - Engram vs. Jurevicious - who will be the bigger producer? Now that DJax is gone, it will be highlighted even more.

Now I am not nearly as in tune to the Seahawks as Im sure you are, but I am kind of a Jurevicious fan after I saw him make some of the most amazing catches Ive ever seen when he was in TB. Why is it that you think Engram will be the #1 guy and not Jurevicious?

Oh yeah - my buy low candidates:
Gonzo
Holmes
RMoss
JLew
KJones
RWayne
CBrown
CChambers
DBennett

sell high:
SDavis
KMcCardell
Bledsoe
MAnderson (probably too late)
CPalmer
BFavre
TJones (probably much too late)

I have to agree with this.... I think Engram is basically just a possession type WR.... He's a great third down guy, and pretty nice when you need that 10 yard catch to move the chains, but I think Joe Jurevicious is likely to be Hasselbeck's big play guy if Jackson can't go....
