Reports are that LT missed his bye week practices as a precaution because of a calf injury. While I doubt the injury is too serious, two more O-linemen are now injured.

Is LT's season-long value down a lot from pre-season expectations? He's been inconsistent, but I personally think he'll have more very solid performances like he did against Oakland. Am I thinking too wishfully? Should I be thinking trade? Is he undervalued and bound to improve or is he overvalued and bound to cool off from what he's done so far this season?

I would only trade if you van get something of value for him. He still is a good back, and should have some good games, but I doubt many people would want to trade for him. I see him as a good buy-low candidate.

LT averaged going around 2nd in most drafts. Now, I would say he's 4th out of the big four backs. I'd rather have Ricky, priest, or Portis. Outside of those 3 though, LT still has more value than anyone else.

i would certainly try to trade FOR him, but this would really be selling low if you trade him away now. look for him to be the bolts' offensive centerpiece coming off the bye week once marty remembers that LT can make things happen if given the rock....then if he has a huge game, start shoppin him around if that is what you want to do.

I have Ahman Green. I would not trade Ahman for LT.
I think LT is better than Ahman, but Ahman is on a better team and GB will run more than San Diego.

I'd be happy with Green instead of LT. Anything can happen, but the Chargers are really circling the drain. Injuries galore on the offensive line and a group of players that have no faith in Marty Schottenheimer (the local fishwrap's beat articles are really telling). I think things are going to get uglier for this team before they get better.

I agree with GZA, once you get a big game out of him, shop him for a 1:05-12 type back (Henry, S.Davis - check out his playoff schedule), or if you're strong at RB then Moss, Harrison or Owens.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.
