Part Deux: Time to sell high on Joe Jurevicius

Postby WeekSixteen » Tue Oct 18, 2005 9:21 pm

This guy has been a pretty good pickup for most people in larger leagues. Engram will be back after the bye (week 8) and JJ has one game left this week (week 7) against the Cowboys as the undisputed #1 WR on the team. I think Engram will take over the #1 role when he returns. Is it time to sell this guy before he plays his last game as a #1? Anyone see a reason to hang onto him?

I've seen him go for some scrub RBs like Droughns and others.

Thoughts....

If you can find someone who doesn't know/realize that...be my guest. :-)

I'm sure his production will go down after Engram returns, but he could still be a good #3...he just won't be #2 quality anymore. If you need to cash in for something better, why not now?

Well, if JJ keeps catching everything thrown his way, he may just overtake Engram as the teams' #2 reciever. I would hold on to him. His chemistry with Hass should only improve.

actually....

Jurevicius and Engram complement each other quite well. Engram will resume his role as possesion receiver, while Jurevicius will continue to stretch the field and exploit his height advantage.
Engram will cut into Stevens production more so than Jurevicius and in some ways, Engrams return may help Joe's producition.

now let's look a the Seahawk schedule....

Dallas / bye week / at Arizona / St.Louis / at S.F. / Giants / at Philly (Monday night) / S.F. / at Tenn / Indy / at G.B.

the earliest we could expect Jackson back is the Eagle game.

Now I'm not saying that Jurevicius should not be shopped around, but you may have a tough time covering his value.

I gotta agree with all of this....

I'm not sure his stock is really all that high anyway. Then again, Bobby Engram has never done that much -- so I don't see his return eating into Joe's production too much. Joe is closer to what I'd call a proven big play receiver.

At this point, even after DJax returns, Joe J has solid value.

But I, too, would shop him around just before DJax returns.

The thing is, he's not the kind of guy who gets much hype, and he's not over-valued.

Sell high on Santana Moss, Joey Galloway, etc. Jurevicius isn't as good of a sell-high candidate.

I concur with Mr. Walker.

Vicius is worth more playing for you than he is worth in a trade.

Actually when Engram comes back I'm just dropping JJ for him it's almost a simple as that. I doubt anyone in my leagues would want JJ knowing this will be his last week of production.

I still dont understand why people think Engram will be a better fantasy option than Jurevicius.

This is one of the bigger headscratchers Ive seen these last few weeks (actually it was discussed prior to the season too). Why do people like Engram so much more - I just dont get it.

Engram and Jackson led the NFC in catches prior to all hell breaking loose.

Joey didn't even see the field unless it was a 3WR set.

He's definitely done nothing but to earn more playing time regardless of what Engram's done. Will that translate to fantasy output?

Who knows. Seattle passes it enough to warrant not dropping him after engram comes back healthy.
