    Week 5 Defenses to Consider 

    Here’s a quick list of teams that are playing some of the lesser offenses in the league this week and who could be available in your league in case you were looking for a plug-in (with the percent owned in parenthesis):

    • Dallas (78%) @ Kansas City
    • Indianapolis (51%) @ Tennessee
    • Buffalo (38%) vs Cleveland
    • Carolina (25%) vs Washington
    • Jacksonville (10%) @ Seattle
    • Cleveland (5%) @ Buffalo

    Braylon Edwards traded to Jets 

    Just when you thought the 49ers signing of Michael Crabtree was the biggest news of the day, Braylon Edwards goes and gets traded to the New York Jets for Chansi Stuckey (and more)! This is great news for those of you lucky enough to win the Mohamed Massaquoi (Browns’ rookie receiver) sweepstakes in this weeks waiver wire. However, I’m not sure it helps Jericho Cotchery’s value all that much.

      what does this do for chansi stuckey’s value, is he worth a ww pickup, or is mo-ma the new #1 in cleveland?

        Stuckey is worth a pick-up if you have someone who you don’t care about dropping. It’s probably worth seeing how Derek Anderson and he can work together first though before picking him up.

      This trade has me all turned around. I’m thinking now is the best (really only) time you can get good value for Edwards. Most people know Edwards is washed up but some don’t…

      The real fantasy change due to the trade is the value of Massquoi. He becomes Cleveland’s clear WR1 with Stuckey and Furrey fighting over WR2. Nevertheless, Massaquoi has done nothing save last week’s performance and I’m really on the fence about him. Is he worth picking up immediately? My thought is no but I don’t see any way he won’t be a great WR3 at some point in the season. I mean every WR1 on every team is a viable WR3 in fantasy at worst. All I can say is keep an eye on Massaquoi.

        Massaquoi is definitely worth a roster spot if you have someone easy to part with (Justin Gage, Davone Bess, etc.) We saw a few years ago what a functional relationship between Derek Anderson and his star receiver (Braylon Edwards) can do in terms of fantasy stats, so who knows, maybe this could lead to the same type of thing…although I’m not sure I’d enjoy that, as I was out-waivered for him in ALL of my leagues.

    Surprising news out of SF – Michael Crabtree has signed on with the 49ers and will report to the team’s training facility on Wednesday. If you’re in a keeper league (or desperate for WR help in a redraft league) and he’s unowned, I’d say grab him now and ask questions later.

      Pick up Chansi or Crabtree?

        Even though Chansi Stuckey’s more likely to see playing time right away, Crabtree’s got a higher ceiling. It’s hard to get too excited about anyone on the Browns offense, especially a receiver who was struggling on a good team. I think it’s reasonable to assume that Crabtree has been given some assurances about playing time this season; otherwise, why wouldn’t he just wait until next year’s draft?

      I snagged him, what are the odds that he will ever be worth starting?

      • Brandon 8:00 am on October 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        You in a keeper league? If not, the odds of him being worth starting are pretty low until maybe around fantasy playoffs time…and that’s IF he picks up the 49ers offense quickly.

      I was lucky enough to get Mossaq. in both my money leagues. I also have Braylon in one of those leagues as well. Need your advice on a trade I’m sitting on right now. We start two RB’s and 4 WR’s each week. Right now, I have Gore, LT, Brown, and McGahee as my backs, and my WR core is Braylon, Bryant, Bennett, Breaston, Sims-Walker, Mossaquoi, Henderson. I’m a little nervous about Gore’s injury and McGahee’s continued production. Someone is offering me Lynch straight up for Braylon. Good or bad move? If Gore comes back healthy, Ronnie stays healthy, and LT gets the train moving… I have no need for Lynch other than as trade bait, which could be a really good thing because lots of teams need a solid RB in this league. Will Lynch end up taking back over the feature back slot at Buffalo? Will Braylon shine or sputter as a Jet? Even if he doesn’t sputter – do I have enough depth in a WR starting-heavy league that I won’t miss him? Please help!

        In a league where you start that many wide receivers, I don’t think you should be trading away one of the guys who could potentially be the best one on your team, especially considering you have plenty of depth at running back. I think McGahee will be solid all year and Gore will be fine once he comes back in a week or two.
