Sell High!

You can probably stick Rudi Johnson onto this list after Sunday's performance. And Levi Jones got hurt, so depending on how serious his injury is, Rudi may be in for some troubles.

Sell High: Chad Johnson.

I know it sounds counter intuitive, but I'm starting to think that now is a good time to "sell high" on Chad Johnson. Housh has been the superior (and favored) receiver on that team ALL YEAR -- it's not like CJ has had just "one bad game." And I see no indication that the trend to Housh is going to reverse.

CJ's near 100 yard game may have people thinking that he's on track to be the great WR that we all expected this year. Pair that with his name recognition, and I say it might be time to sell CJ while you can.

But from where I sit, it looks like Housh is the best WR on the Bengals this year.

I'll say sell McNabb.
He has been great and hasn't shown any sign of slowing
plus Was at home this next week should put up the points.

But then...

and for the playoffs
week 14 @ Was
week 15 @ NYG

Three Division games on the road, I just don't like it.

If I were a McNabb owner I prob. would Not be able to trade him, but he seems to fit the sell high criteria.

But, when is Stallworth even expected back?


I was waiting on a fellow Saints fan to chime in on this one. Stallworth is going to be nursing that hamstring the rest of his career (I base this opinion on the fact that he has been nursing it since the start of his career).

Reggie Brown will be inconsistent the rest of the year, but that has more to do with how much they spread the ball around in Philly than anything. He will put up some numbers whether Donte is active or not.

i have a problem with selling high... i can't count very well when I am in that state so I often get short-changed.

I guess you're figuring that McNabb will continue to put up those monster games???

He'll come back down to Earth, defenses are already figuring out Post-TO Eagle's offense.

I'd say he's the perfect sell-high QB, in exchange for a buy-low QB of Peyton ;-D Solid ;-D

A guy like Bulger/Hasselbeck + a top5 or top10 RB/WR ? Manning + something? I think you get multiple players trading McNabb, and that could really help out a team fill some holes at other positions that McNabb has been carrying. I for one don't expect the 5000/35/5 pace to continue..

I don't know, I just see the Eagle's O holding things together with a lot of invisible wires that could snap at any moment. Stallworth is down, Westbrook is breaking, Brown or LJ Smith gets dinged and it could all fall apart. McNabb has looked GREAT, but I saw him get a little bit exposed by New Orleans. He's still the far and away #1 QB in my book, but he is falling from "stud" status real quick.

I've been trying to sell Grossman high in one league for a couple of weeks (I also have Peyton and Bulger on that team so I really don't need him; he was a waiver wire trade bait pickup), but no-one's biting. You'd think with three of the top 6 QBs on my roster, I could get nibbles from someone, but not even the bottom feeders with QB troubles will bite.
