    Chad Ochocinco (Johnson?) traded to the New England Patriots 

    As a Patriots fan, I can’t complain that New England isn’t making things interesting this season. In addition to acquiring Albert Haynesworth, they’ve now traded for Chad Ochocinco (not sure if he plans to change his name back now?) and solidify one of the most solid wide receiver corps in the league. As long as Bill Belichick can put up with his social networking, I see this move working out pretty well.

    In other news, recently cut wide receiver Roy Williams has signed with the Chicago Bears. Interesting move…which I don’t see working out all that great. He has a decent quarterback with Jay Cutler, but the fact that he couldn’t succeed in Dallas, who doesn’t have a scrub at QB to begin with, raises some serious questions about his skill level at this point.

    Anyone know where Terrell Owens is hiding?

    Looks like this is the end of Chad Ochocinco. Possibly in preparation for joining a team where he may not be #85, he plans to change his name back to Chad Johnson. Too bad for this guy

    Ocho Cinco benched-o 

    In case you had the great (read: bad) idea of sneaking the man formerly known as Chad Johnson into your lineup for tonight’s game against the Steelers, think again. Ocho Cinco has been benched for violating an undisclosed team rule and should be sitting safely on your team’s bench as well. He’s been consistently mediocre at the position this season anyways, so this probably doesn’t matter to you, but just in case…

    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. (More …)

      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.

    • Matt 4:48 pm on September 25, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      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.

    Ask the Geeks – Week 4 

    Atg ButtonWell it’s week four and many of you are probably feeling the effect of poor planning when you took three starters that all had the same bye week (don’t worry…you’re not alone!) Anyways, hopefully we can offer you some advice to get you past the bye week blues and maintain your first place spot in the standings…

    Wendy asks: Hey Geeks, I need help picking my #2 wr for week 4. I am playing Cotchery. I can pick up one of these guys off waivers. Who is the best option?

    Chad Johnson vs. Cleveland (huge game vs. them last year, but is injury keeping him from breaking out?)
    Torry Holt vs. Buffalo  (is he worth a shot with trent green the new qb?)
    Donald Driver vs. TB
    Antonio Bryant vs. GB
    Brandon Lloyd vs. Philadelphia

    Thanks!

    Brandon’s take: Hey Wendy, although the stats go against what I’m saying, I have to believe that Mr. Cinco is ready for a break out week. Cleveland hasn’t been known as a defensive powerhouse and Ocho Cinco (the man formerly known as Chad Johnson) is apparently feeling good enough to ditch the shoulder support he was wearing in previous weeks. I think Antonio Bryant is more of a one hit wonder, while Brandon Lloyd and Donald Driver are going against tough defenses. Torry Holt could be in for a long day with Bulger now out of the lineup. Go with Ocho Cinco…the ultimate high risk, high reward play. (More …)
