none of those. you go for top 20 imo right now and i wouldnt consider braylon in that even if thats where he was drafted. i had ronnie on my bench but now might trade a stud starter to fill out some of my team, dont deal him unless you get something solid in return.

I'd keep him if I were in a TD heavy league. He's scored the last 2 weeks. And he finishes with SF and KC during the playoffs. Should be 2 good weeks. That's more like the Dolphins I thought we'd see, run it 35 times and throw it 20. Their defense isn't that good so that's really how I think we'll see their offense go. They've finally decided to pound it with their big backs.

I think that is exactly the WR group you are looking at for R Brown.

Braylon might be reaching a little high. I haven't really moved Boldin up past Braylon yet for the rest of the season. I could see any of these deals being acceptable.

I gotta say...the dude is back. And if he isn't, well he sure faces one helluva easy run schedule. Go check it out. Other than Baltimore, no one is ranked higher than 14th against the run and most are in the 20's I think. I have him in one league and I'm trying to get him in 2 others.

He is a top 5 RB when healthy.

Maybe I'm looking through this through the rose colored glasses that Brown owners are wearing right now, but Ronnie looks like a surefire RB1 at this point. The wildcat formation is here to stay and any RB that is taking between 5 and 10 direct snaps a game is going to have huge value. Sparano is a genius. Hold Ronnie Brown.

Edit: By the way, you could argue that he deserves QB eligibility.

Definitely a keeper. It isn't like this is the first time he's looked dominant; before his ACL tear last year he was a top five running back. He's the focal point of what looks like a decent Dolphins offense.

He does look 100% and that's really the best news, I have my concerns on if he can finish a full season and when he actually completes one I won't have those concerns anymore...But he will killing fantasy last year, and the schedule is easy, so you have to think he can produce like a RB1 without much of a problem.

He looked like a beast. Even at the end of the game he was getting nice 8-12 yard runs and dealing some punishment to defenders. The announcers sure seemed convinced that Miami is back.

I read during his rookie year one opposing coach said he was the best young RB not named LT. That's always stuck with me, so when I get him at good value I'll jump. He was maybe outside the top 5-8 picks at his highpoint last year and the year before. I think he still holds that potential - but he has had some injury and consistency problems over his career. His injuries haven't affected his ability at this point.

I think you could certainly get Braylon for him now, and probably any WR besides TO - and that deal wouldn't shock me.

I'm having trouble starting him with Peterson and Portis and just 2 RB spots - but I don't really need help elsewhere so I'm not looking to trade him either. RB's get beat up over the season so I'm holding.

He does have a pretty easy schedule. Looks like he is in for a big year.
