    Sell High, Buy Low: Trade ideas for Week 7 2008 


    Last week, I advised you to sell high on:

    • LaDainian Tomlinson¬†– After LT said last week about his injured toe that “you can’t get it better in one week,” I was feeling pretty down on him and advised trading him away. Now he’s saying that it feels “better” – not 100%, but better. It’s impossible to know how he really feels, but if his 3.7 YPC against the Pats is any indication, his days as the top fantasy RB are long gone, at least for the foreseeable future. Trade him.
    • Brandon Jacobs – 67 yards in week 6, and the schedule gets much tougher from here.
    • DeAngelo Williams – 27 rush yards. Told you week 5 was a fluke. I was able to offload him in a trade that brought me Calvin Johnson last week.¬†
    • Steve Slaton – I was worried that the return of Ahman Green would hurt his production, and I was right (just 15 carries, 58 yards).

    Without further ado, here are some ideas your weekend wheelin’ and dealin’… (More …)

      Yes, Jones-Drew’s stock jumped after last weekend, but his schedule the next couple weeks along with his concussion loving RB friend Fred Taylor may vault him into a whole new category as far as trading him goes. I see 3 matchups against Cleveland, Cincy, and Detroit and would absolutely hold onto him until the Jags play the Titans in Wk 11.

      I actually like Matt Forte as a nice sell high candidate now as he’s playing like an RB1 but hasn’t had 100 yds rushing since week 1. When Kyle Orton comes back down to the QB numbers he’s known for having, Forte’s production will directly suffer.

    Running back Joseph Addai to miss two to four weeks 

    Earlier this week I wrote that it appeared that Colts running back Joseph Addai’s hamstring injury wasn’t as bad as originally expected (hopefully you still picked up Dominic Rhodes though!)…it turns out I was misinformed. Addai is now expected to miss two to four weeks (I’d lean towards the latter) with a partially torn hamstring. If you haven’t picked up Dominic Rhodes and he’s still available for some reason, I suggest you grab him immediatly. Backup Mike Hart was also injured in the last game (he’s out for the season), so the Colts will be relying on unknowns Clifton Dawson and Chad Simpson to spell Rhodes, meaning that Dominic should get the majority of the carries this Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
