    Quick notes: Parker and Burress out 

    In case you weren’t already aware, here are a few notes on players that could potentially be in your starting lineup right now…and shouldn’t be:

    • Plaxico Burress, WR, NYG: Burress has been suspended for one game by the Giants after missing a practice and failing to call and let team officials know why.
    • Willie Parker, RB, PIT: Parker has been ruled out of this weekend’s game with a sprained knee, meaning that rookie Rashard Mendenhall will get the first start of his young career. For all of you Mendenhall fans out there though, don’t be so eager to plug him into your lineup unless you don’t have a better option. The Baltimore Ravens are possibly the top defense in the league this season and I don’t see Mendenhall being the guy to change that. (More …)

    Sell high, buy low: Trade ideas for week 4 2008 

    Sell high, buy lowWhat’d I tell you about Carson Palmer? He might have only thrown one TD pass, but 286 yards and a 98.9 QB rating against the Giants defense should tell you that the reports of his demise were exaggerated indeed. Just wait to see what he does this week with Cleveland in town. If you were in need of QB help last week, I hope you listened to me and did your best to wrench him away from his dejected owner.

    Now that we’ve all learned an important lesson (I am infallible and questioning me puts you at risk of looking as silly as the dissenters in last week’s Sell High, Buy Low comments section), we’re on to this week’s trade ideas:

    Sell High

    Reggie Bush, RB, Saints – He’s a must-start for now and – as long as he stays healthy – should continue to be a top fantasy rusher. But Deuce McAllister’s healthy again, and coach Payton says “his time is coming.” With the Saints struggling to run the ball (most of Bush’s production has come in the passing game), count on Payton to dramatically increase Deuce’s workload in the weeks to come, which will cut down on the number of plays that Bush is involved in. As far as fantasy football value is concerned, Bush will likely go back to being more of an RB2 than an RB1. If you’re a Bush owner, find the member of your league who’s most likely to be enamored with Bush’s famous name and thus-far stellar production and see if you can swap him for a feature back like Joseph Addai, Marshawn Lynch, or Clinton Portis.

      Another sell high candidate has gotta be Julius Jones. I was able to sell him high and buy Housh quite low. I like Palmer’s performance last week, and the Browns will make him a relevant QB option after this weekend

      Agreed. If anything, the time-share in Seattle is going to be worse than it started this season once Morris comes back in week 5. Duckett made his case for carries in week 3.

      How about Braylon Edwards, shouldn’t he quality for a buy low. He’s played terrible lately and he can’t possibly get any worse.

      You could make a case for Edwards, but I haven’t been a believer in Cleveland for months now. If Derek Anderson is replaced by Brady Quinn, what then? Is Quinn going to play at a high enough level to get the ball to Edwards on a consistent basis? If Anderson stays at QB, is he going to get it together and become the guy he was last season? It’s hard to call anyone on the Browns a buy-low at this point until we see some reason to believe that their offense will snap out of its funk.

      On Reggie Bush – no one can seem to give a clear answer on Deuce McAllister. He suits up but doesn’t play. He’s suppose to be healthy. Meanwhile Pierre Thomas is getting carries. Maybe they are overcautious with him. But I would hold onto Bush, especially in a PPR league.

      Something about Joseph Addai…I can’t put my finger on it…I’m just avoiding him. It feels like he could have a great game or take himself out with an injury.
