I would then liken T Browns fantasy value as the pretty sister version of the Vikings. Who knows whose getting the ball, the only one that would really, really see an increase in value is Ben Watson. Who to me would become the third best TE behind Gates and Heap.

Branch on the Seahawks or the Jets really hurts his value.

Please pass whatever you're smoking this way.


Other people are smoking that too... saw watson go #4 in my league (after Gates, Shockey, Heap)... that's what we call a REACH.

I guess im smoking that as well. He is faster than Gates....do you guys realize this? He is gonna be huge. He has a great QB and if they lose Branch he will be their #1 option and reciver this year. I still put Gates/Shockey/Heap over him then him at #4 just ahead of Gonzalez since they dont believe in passing tds in KC.

Should I try to make a trade for L. Coles. If he did go to NE he would be a top wr. But if Branch goes the Jets and Coles stays then both of their values drop dramatically. If it worth trying to trade for him now bc once word broke of coles to NE he would be impossible to trade for. How substantiated are these rumors?

What about Chad Jackson being an impact rookie coming out of college? It seems that this guy has all kinds of talent, the question being, is how quick he can adapt to the pro game?

Fist I'm hearing of Coles being in a deal. Thought Pats wanted our 1st round pick for next year. Plus I think the Jets would be offering McCareins instead of Coles in any deal for Branch.

News: With a team-imposed 4 p.m. ET deadline to seek a trade, ESPN.com is reporting that WR Deion Branch has reached a tentative contract agreement with the New York Jets and potentially the Seattle Seahawks. The sticking point for Branch to join either of these teams would be the compensation package back to the Patriots, believed to be at least a first-round pick.

Kris Wilson is faster than Gates, Vernon Davis is faster than Gates, there are lots of TEs faster than Gates. I didn't realise we were giving out fantasy points based on speed these days.

I hope people are dumb enough to take Watson ahead of Tony G, I (or someone else) will reap the benefits.

It's better than him not playing, but Brady is the reason he is good.

Listened to NFL Live this afternoon. Sounds like the Patriots are not going to trade him. They set a deadline of 3 central for this afternoon for a trade to get done and nothing happened.

That will not happen. Coles will not go to the Pats.
