    Sell High, Buy Low: Trade ideas for Week 8 2008 

     SellbuyIf your team needs some help and you’re looking to make a trade to bolster a position, here’s a list of players to look for and work into those deals this week. Players listed under Sell High are overvalued – meaning that I think they’re performing at a level they won’t be able to maintain throughout the season, and thus are ripe to be traded away while their value is still high. Those listed under Buy Low are the ones to look for on other peoples’ teams – hopefully their owners are discouraged by their poor performance thus far, and will trade them away for a song.

    Sell High

    LenDale White, RB, TEN – This one has the combination of highly recognizable name and big, out-of-character performance against a bad defense. There’s someone in your league who remembers White from his USC days, looks at his monster week 7 performance, and just can’t help him/herself. Find that person and trade White away this week, before he reverts to his old self (he was averaging well under three yards per carry before the KC game). I won’t argue with you if you want to hold onto him for one more week and gamble that he’ll have another nice game against the Colts. Two straight big games would increase his trade value significantly. That said, he didn’t do much against Cincy in week 2, so another big game is far from a given. (More …)

      Great picks on Jason Campbell and Lee Evans. I drafted Evans fairly late for one team b/c no one in one of my league thought he was worthy of more than low-end WR2 or WR3 status.

      I share the same concerns on Clinton Portis. Whether he keeps it up or not, his playoff schedule isn’t ideal (Ravens, Eagles). I know he runs over everyone, but still… With his value so high, I would consider accepting a package including someone Ronnie Brown, who is set for success for the remainder of the season, for Portis.

      Thanks. I wasn’t 100% sold on Trent Edwards before the season, but I’m definitely kicking myself now for not drafting Evans at a bargain price when I had the chance.

      Edwards is a bum…go Patriots! Matt Cassel is the guy you should be picking up! (Note: no fantasy analysis went into this comment)

    Tight end Kellen Winslow suspended one game 

    In case you hadn’t heard, Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow has been suspended for one game after making critical comments towards the team regarding how they handled his injury/illness two weeks ago. For those of you who took Winslow in the draft (I did in multiple leagues!) hoping he could repeat his stats from last year, you’ve been rewarded with nothing but headaches so far…and I don’t expect it to get a whole lot better anytime soon. The offense has dropped off dramatically since last season and it seems the team is reaching the end of the rope with Winslow as he was apparently on the trading block before the deadline, but they couldn’t get enough in return to warrant a trade. While I can’t recommend dropping Winslow from your squad (he’s got too much talent…and maybe Brady Quinn will take a liking to him if/when he gets to start), I CAN sympathize with you and pray that he can get back on track come fantasy football playoffs time!
