Ronnie Brown, sell high now that Chambers is gone?

Postby Gnu314 » Wed Oct 17, 2007 2:06 pm

I saw Ronnie as possibly a sell high candidate before the trade... now I don't even know how teams will focus on anyone but Brown.

What do you guys think? Who do you think you could get in return for Ronnie if you try to move him?

Before last game, LJ would certainly have been a good target (hah or ADP for that matter) who knows

Ronnie Brown was a sell high ever since he started the season hot.
Now that Chambers is gone it makes it that much easier for defences to just stop there run game and make Brown non existent.
I would put some feelers out there to see how your league values Brown before just dishing him off.

What in the world are you talking about ? ...
Ronnie didnt start off hot, the first two games he was splitting with Chatman and didnt do jack, so he didnt start hot, number one.
Secondly, if he was a good sell high canidate from early in the season as you say ..then you would have screwed yourself by selling him ! ...I mean hes been a monster for the last 4 weeks.

A good sale high canidate would be somebody who is hot, and then after you sell high the player goes downhill. Ronnie hasnt fit that description at all to date.

Ronnie Brown WAS a perfect buy low canidate after weak 2


PS. I wouldnt worry about Chambers being gone ... I mean Ronnie's been the focal point of every defense that Miami has played anyway. The schedule would be more of a concern then Chambers is, imo.

To say that for all cases is false...it's all about how high you sell him at, ideal you want to sell him at his peak, if a drop off or production level worth less than what you got for him comes in the coming weeks.

So if you got Brown for LT before last weekend, and then Brown still performed well yet LT did better, that wouldn't be considered a good sell high candidate?

I wasn't really worried about it until you brought it up, but I'm interested in that thought now, I've been taking about him as a sell high candidate, but he just kept being great, so I didn't worry about it. But the fact that Chambers is gone could indeed cause a problem, I guess we'll just have to see how much of a problem. :-?

I dont think chambers has anything to do with Ronnie's success .. I mean trent green doesnt even throw the ball more than 20 yards .. its not like he was a deep threat when he was here in Miami.


I say its the playcalling and the improve offensive line of Miami. imo.

I kind of agree. This topic caught my eye, as I tried like hell to sell Ronnie early; nobody bought, so lucky me! But, I wouldn't be surprised to see the other shoe drop...

But, having said that, Chambers was never really part of the offense down there anyway. Never scored a TD this season, right? Plus, Ronnie is running well.

But here's the capper: he's 9th in the AFC with 34 receptions. Ninth overall. Ahead of guys like Wayne and Harrison and Edwards. If they were dumping it to him in the flat before and it worked, it oughta still work; they never threw to Chambers to begin with. Ginn might prove to be a tonic (sorry!) for the team; he's an unknown quantity to opposing coaches.

Now if Lemon will stop being a TD hog and hand it off to Brown, then he'd really be cooking.

If anything, I see this as helping Ronnie. Other than him, Chambers really was the ONLY other threat to get the touches. While defenses may be cued more on him, his touches will increase, so a slight drop off in YPC will be made up by his unbelievable skill as a pass catcher and the increase in carries. I wouldn't sell him unless I get great value in return.

ya, after some thought I'm gonna have to agree, he's on the block, but I'm going to have to get a lot of return.
