I'm selling Issac Bruce in my Yahoo League and getting Deuce McAllister. I only wish people in the leagues I paid for would panic like this.

i would look to go after Kevin Jones. His value is very low right now. Also Duce Staley b/c its doubtful the Bus will get 3 TDs again but all people see is this one game as a guideline

Warrick Dunn had a good day and they left him in at the goalline. If you can get a more legit starter for him I would try to do that as well

I agree that Culpepper is a big sell high guy. You might be able to get a first round RB like Duece for him.

I think Griffin is a sell high candidate right now...he is not a #1 fantasy runningback

If I had T. Jones, I'd be looking to sell him high right now. I think the 2 TDs is a bit of an abberation.

Yeah, I think his yards were terrible.

All you guys are saying sell Tiki high... I don't see any difference between him and a guy like Curtis Martin. If Martin continues or you think he will, then now wouldn't be the time to get him, but Tiki should still be able to get 1,000yds with 5-8 TDs...

IMO, It's still too early to ship TJones right now. All it takes is one click to see his 3.2 YPC. He will need another good game or two.

In my league you have to wait a few weeks before a guy will give up on a stud or massively elevate a scrub.

With that said, sell high -

Tom Brady - NE will settle in with the running game when not playing such an explosive offense.

Faulk - Like others have said, the injury is merely weeks away.

Tiki Barber - He got garbage points mostly. He lost a ton of carries to Dayne and do you honestly think that Coughlin will turn a blind eye to his fumbles the way Fassel did?

buy low -

Jeremy Shockey - He'll get his once Manning officially becomes the starter. Right now there are so many concerns that you may be able to land him on the cheap.

Coles - He dropped off at the end of last year and then started slow yesterday. He has the talent though and Gibbs will air out the ball when they play better offensive teams than the depleted Bucs.

Jimmy Smith - When that offense turns the corner they are going to take off full tilt. Jimmy will lead the way.

Travis Henry - Hidden in his poor outing is the fact that he had the vast majority of the carries and McGahee had bad numbers as well.

Aaron Brooks - Too much talent for that offense to struggle for long. He still put up decent yardage. Expect that to continue and the TDs to begin.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

Since he's unlikely to average 14.3 yards per touch the rest of the season, that might be hard to do on 9 carries a game. I'd be selling.

You can trade him for what you want, you know what you're getting out of him and everyone who you trade him too should be able to also. He's pretty consistent and like I said, you know what you're getting meaning you probably won't get any more value than you normally would.
