Hmm. In the "Expert" dynasty draft, someone put forward an argument for Dwayne Bowe-

From David Givens, Troy Brown, and Deion Branch in New England, to Rhema McKnight, Jeff Samardzija, and Maurice Stovall at Notre Dame, Weis is the ultimate maximizer of wideout ability. Dwayne Bowe (who plays the freelancing, target-happy split end position Golden Tate won the Biletnikoff Award at in 2009), I expect to reach his potential in Weis' receiver-friendly system.

Footballguys Buy/Sell- explanations in link. The names-

Buy
Lance Moore
Brandon Tate
Larry Fitzgerald
Arian Foster
Jabar Gaffney
Devin Hester
Hines Ward
Donald Driver
Derrick Mason
Carson Palmer
Matt Moore
Hakeem Nicks
Mario Manningham
Malcolm Kelly
Donald Brown
Matt Jones
Harry Douglas
Matt Ryan

Sell
Devin Aromashodu
Ben Tate
Joe Flacco
Anquan Boldin
Matt Leinart
Alex Smith
Ryan Grant
Thomas Jones
Mike Wallace

Some of these names surprise. Don't see Hester and Palmer as buys, or Flacco and Wallace as sells. But, I'm not here to provide my view, just give others. Solid reasoning about Ryan Grant.

I like his thinking on Ward / Driver /Mason. I always take these guys as my secondary WRs on the cheap over the hyped rookie wrs taken around the same time. We had a good debate on this last year if I recall here in the cafe... ;-D

Agree on Aroma, I think he could really surprise this year. Cutler was big on him last year, and down the stretch Aroma had a couple of great games. If we could only realize that Hester will never be a #1, and put him back on special teams, and a role player at WR, Aroma could break out, Knox could stretch the field, and Bennett and Iglesias could develop even further. I picked up Aroma in two dynasties last year for cheap, and think he is a great sleeper. For dynasties, if he's out there still, pick him up. If you are in a redraft, maybe grab him late. He's a good WR4 with potential to really explode. ADP at Fantasy Football Calculator where I do a lot of mocking is 7.08, but he's lasted until the 9th, and gone as early as the 5th. If you see him late, scoop him up.

I also like Garrard. Much better as a QB2, but he was the #14 QB in my leagues last year. If you call the top 10-12 QB1s, he was only 18 pts out of the top 10, which is about 1 pt a week. He was ahead of Palmer, Ryan, Flacco, Cassel, Campbell, Orton, etc. If they can get their WRs figured out, he could really move up into the top 10.

Another WR to keep an eye on is the aging and criminal Donte Stallworth. I know, I know, I dropped him in many leagues, but he's been looking good in camp, and is going really late. At FFC he is going UNDRAFTED. With Flacco improving, he could get some action, and is worth a late flier IMO.

As a Garrad fan you should get a kick out of this - http://www.xtranormal.com/watch/6280813/

Who hasn't used that argument before? The thing is, it's one of a bunch of possible arguments, and some ppl use only that one argument. It gets old if used too much, but if used strategically, you can get an elite QB for a swap in elite WRs.

Someone from the Chicago Bears is going to be this years Sidney Rice. Gut feeling is Aroshmedu (sp?) dude, but could just as easily Hester.

I fully expect James Starks to give Ryan Grant a run for the starting position this year as well.

I just don't think it'll EVER be Hester, but I hear he's studying with Isaac Bruce. I think Aroma or even Knox. But right now I keep hearing it's Hester and Knox as the starters. It should be Aroma soon though, imo.

Does that make Aroma a cheaper buy from owners who read that news that Hester and Knox are the starters?
