Is it bad that almost everyone on my team has been mentioned in the buy low portion of this thread? Guess I won't be trading much this week :)

thats how i feel. I'd love to sell high, but I have nothing to sell with! I have Mcallister, Brooks, Plaxico, Krob, Andre Johnson, Vick....ahhh..I have Alexander too, but his injury, as small as it is, will scare some off

i think trading c-pep is moronic... he will score more then your opponents QB 75-80% of the time... maybe if you're desperate for a #2 back... dont forget Dallas was one of the best defensive units last year... 5 TDs a game? no way... but expect an average of 2-3 WEEKLY.. AND big yardage.... sell high... tsss

great call! Tiki is one of the biggest sell high candidates there is right now.


I do not agree with this assessment. People got so down on Tiki with his drop last season and Dayne taking carries from him this season. Even with his play this week. I do not think he is a sell high guy, let alone one of the biggest candidates out there.

I am trying to trade Curtis Martin now too.

Thank you Tiki!

why not?

You gave a couple of reason why he IS a sell high candidate: losing carries to Dayne of all people (Dayne had more carries actually), and Tiki fumbles too often.

But you gave no reason why you think he isnt a sell high candidate. Do you think Dayne will get injured? Do you think Tiki will correct his fumbling issues?

Im not sure why you would list reasons to sell him, provide no theory as to why those reasons are wrong, but still argue that you shouldnt sell him - that makes no sense.

Perhaps, but let's say you have a good first-round RB (Ahman Green) and drafted Culpepper in the second, and went from there. You keep selling yourself on how Culpepper will have incredible stats every week -- which means you should be able to sell that to other owners. Realistically, you could work a deal of Culpepper and whatever RB you snagged in round three or four for someone like Deuce McAllister and a Steve McNair, Trent Green, Chad Pennington. Having a starting RB duo of Green and McAllister, plus a solid QB will anchor your team much better than Culpepper, Green and a much riskier second RB -- like Westbrook or Michael Bennett.

I'd buy low on Kevin Jones. We he gets on that Detroit turf, he will be solid. Despite his subpar rushing #'s this week, he was very impressive to me in his speed and ability to break tackles.

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.


I agree here. Warner simply does not have the arm anymore to be an NFL starter.

I also agree with this. He missed the entire preseason and is barely in game shape. Give him 2-3 weeks and watch him explode.

If I had Tiki I would be vigorously shopping him right now. That game actually made my expectations for Tiki lower, but because of his big numbers this week some people will actually expect more from him.

He lost waaaaaaaaaaaay more carries to Dayne then I thought he would, 8/9 carries a game for someone that was barely a serviceable fantasy RB when he was getting 20-25 carries does not make me confident in him. Yet people will see his big fantasy point total this week and think of big things from him. The possiblily that a guy that scored 2 TD's last year puts up 100+ and a TD on less than 10 carries is not exactly something I'd want to rely on.
