I would keep him. Who else are you going to find to replace his production at WR?.. Outside of guys like Moss/Owens/Holt/Johnson, the top WR's in the league fluctuate wildly every year. Maybe Santana is one of those guys this year. Steve Smith would be another.

Stick with him and enjoy his production. He actually hasn't had a poor game all year.

I would keep him. If we saw your roster, we could make a better suggestion. I'm keeping him as my bye week/injury filler. Or switch him with Plax depending on match-up.

If I were inclined to sell him (still undecided) ....I would at least wait until after Giants game in two weeks....possibly even after the Eagles game (week 9 Sunday night special in D.C.)...

Week 10.... Moss must face the Buccs secondary in Tampa

Really does depend on your roster. His number for the year will probably be more like a #2 WR than what he's done so far. I'd expct 60 - 100 yds a week, a TD every couple games. Dallas stats were a true fluke ... two 'hail marys' that were not part of the game plan i bet. Last week's game showed that he has a hard time carrying it through the whole game ... big fall off in the 4th quarter.

I have him as my #2 WR in two different leagues .. he is not going anywhere from my roster. But if he was my #1, I'd seriously be looking to trade up to someone who has a better track record and has started slow .. i.e., harrison, r. moss, a. green in a two player deal. (Moss + mediocre for underperforming star and fast starter with potential like Randle El)

I'm trying to trade for him right now. I offered crumpler and t. glenn. I already have witten, and I think glenn's performance is going to slow down or he will get injured. S. Moss is a playmaker IMO, and he should continue this all year.

I was able to acquire Santana Moss in a trade for JETS DEF. This was a steal for me....

Someone offered me the JETS D for SMoss. I said "No thanks!"

I don't understand what's so hard for team about covering Moss. He's their only threat and a speed guy. Double him with a safety over the top AT ALL TIMES. Seriously, 3 of his 4 TDs are 39, 70, and 78 yards. That's absurd. I think he's gotten away with it thus far because people looked at him as "just Santana Moss". Pretty soon teams are going to stop that and make Patten and Cooley beat them instead.
