what if you're selling imaginary pizza?


now you're talking!!!

hmmm.... pizza.

heh. not really a sell high, but if you can get Stephen Alexander and a top tier wideout for LT, that might be a good idea.

I think Stephen Alexander and a WR is not enough for LT. Now, Shaun Alexander and a WR, that might work. :-b

mcnabb won't keep up the pace, but its not really a typical "sell high."

I mean there was a mosntrous non call with baskett downfield that would have added a nice big chunk of yardage and a few drops that were completely not his fault. I think Donovan didn't look as good as usual yeasterday, but when your worst game is 240 and two td's, that's pretty damn good. I didn't see anything the saints did that particualrly stopped him. more like the fat man stopping him by refusing to call the intermedia routes and adjust.

I still see him as appraoching 4k and having mid thirties in total td's.

BTw, brown has really only had one "bad" fantasy game. He has scored in 4 of 6 games, and in a non-scoring game had a 100 yards.

Everyone but the eleite wr's are inconsistent, and even sometimes them. A WR isn't going to score every game, and brown is looking better and better lately.

But if you can get a lot of nice pieces to make your overall squad better and diversify, I think you have to do it.

But frankly, other than jacksonville, dallas, and atlanta/carolina, I don't really see a defense that is that scary for donovan specifically. Skins and Giants secondary have been shredded at various places, the Indy game figures to be a shootout. And I think he will have a good game at one of the four "hard ones". Plus there is a game against Tennessee in there. Skins i believe have the highest amount of "big plays" against them, and the eagles are on of the biggest "big play" teams. I don't see how they present some sort of scary matchup.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

It's just that there division games. I know that I'm cherry picking data here but; two weeks ago Dal put up 45 points on Ten, then the next week Ind put up 14. Same with Oak vs Den last night.

I know I over looked Sea vs Stl, but Stl vs Arz was 16 to 14.

Anyway thats what I was say'n.

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.



ive tried to tell people for the past week or so, plus palmer looks bad in the pocket after his knee injury, pocket presence is off, their o line isnt working well, and he has been looking for TJ, housh probably will have better numbers, i dont see chad getting 1400 yds and 10 td's again

I hear you. But maybe I'm in the wrong here, but sometimes I think division stuff is "overrated." And by that, I do not mean unimportant. I mean that at some point the team approaches and player skills trump that.

Division games or not, Dallas and new York didn't stop Donovan, I really don't see the Skins doing so if those teams couldn't, given how that team seems to be in meltdown all of the sudden. And if you want to say "divison games"--the eagles still have a home date with the skins. so if I gave you one mor e"hard game" so be it.

I don't think what you are saying isn't a conisderation, but its awfully hard to quantify emotion and intangibles. From where I sit, if the Eagles passed over the other two STRONGER divsional teams, and looking at how the Skins seem to be getting shredded on defense, (troy vincent ain't gonna help that much), the facts lead me to think that it won't be that big of a deal.

could be wrong though.
