Fantasy Football Trade Market:
Riddle Me A Romo (Week 6)
BEAST DOME NATION.
In this post there are plenty of Buy/Sell Players based on my R.O.S Rankings below. Hopefully you caught last weeks article where I was telling everyone to sell Cam Newton all week (Green Eggs and Cam). Finally, he collapsed.
TONY ROMO – QB – DAL
Jerry Jones has one goal this season. To win a Super Bowl. The reason Romo was having trouble earlier this season was because the offensive line was not winning the battle up front. You can guarantee that the Cowboys O-Line is ready to have a game of their life after their bye week. Romo is ready to turn this team around, he will end up with 30 TDs. Having Dez Bryant/Miles Austin/Jason Witten is one of the best trios in the NFL.
Romo is 2/4 in throwing over 300 Yards in a game. Do not panic.
MICHAEL VICK – QB – PHI
Vick is looking really good this season. Until the Eagles get into the Red Zone. Vick will improve his Red Zone stats throughout the season as he gets more and more confident with his abilities and Maclin gets back to 100%. This week playing against the Lions you can expect the Eagles to be throwing the ball frequently. Vick is overdue for a HUGE monster game where you will want him in your lineup. Make a point to get him on your team this week.
MICHAEL TURNER – RB – ATL
JacQuizz Rodgers supporters (me include) are shocked to see him on this list. But I will tell you this, now is the time to Buy & Sell Michael Turner like a stock. This week playing against the Raiders there will be too many goal line situations where Turner cannot have a bad game. Once he gets 2 TDs Sunday and his value rises to another level, that is when you sell him. Beat the trend, and this is a BEAT the trend move.
Next week you can turn him into Alfred Morris.
DARREN MCFADDEN – RB – OAK
Run DMC is the Raiders. If he has an amazing season this team has a small chance. If Palmer has to win them anymore games, they will fall way below .500. The Bye Week came at the perfect time for Oakland as this team was hitting a new Low. Playing Atlanta will probably remind us that there is not a lot of upside for this team, but there is hope for RUN DMC to be a consistent Top 5 Fantasy Football RB. Get him on your team while his value is this low.
WILLIS MCGAHEE – RB – DEN
Take this as me giving a vote of confidence to Willis. Who cares if he fumbled or dropped a big 4th down pass late in the game. Ronnie Hillman is nowhere near the RB Willis McGahee is, and Denver is not even close to reducing his playing time. This week he faces a SD team that he was able to gave for over 120+ Yards with Tebow as his QB. This season with Peyton Manning, run defenses are too busy worrying about the pass.
Willis will have his revenge game.
DEMARCO MURRAY – RB – DAL
DeMarco was a victim of poor run blocking. Assuming that Dallas did what they were supposed to do over the bye and fix that O-Line. Murray could be in line for a Monster Performance against the Ravens who just allowed Jamaal Charles to rush for 140 Yards last week. DeMarco is ready for a big game, the Cowboys are ready for a big game. Buy DeMarco while people contemplate trading him for Ahamd Bradshaw.
ANDRE JOHNSON – WR – HOU
Another vote of confidence here. Andre will bounce back after last weeks terrible game against Cromartie. Antonio looked a step faster than him, and Andre was not involved as the Texans were happy to run the ball for 7 Yards at a time. This week Andre faces the Packers, and history has told us that #1 WRs do well against Green Bay. Just ask Marques Colston two weeks ago, or Reggie Wayne last week. Either way, Andre is long overdue for his bounce back game. This is it.
JEREMY MACLIN – WR – PHI
Between not being 100%, and playing in Prime Time matchups. J-Mac Attack has fallen off the fantasy radar at the moment. Let us no forget that all Eagles camp everyone was touting him as a breakout candidate, and a player the Eagles know is going to take the next step. This week he faces a Lions Secondary that is very prone to teams passing the ball. Louis Delmas is back, but his attention will probably be to stop the deep man Desean. Look for Maclin to get back on track this week, making this the best time to buy-low.
ANTONIO GATES – TE – SD
This Ex-Superstar sees his value at an all new low. You can probably trade Brent Celek for him these days, and that is the type of move that will take your team to the next level. Antonio Gates has looked slow, and he has been injured with bad ribs. Does not matter. The Chargers need him to be a factor this entire season, and that starts Monday Night against Denver in a matchup where Malcolm Floyd is going to be locked up. Open up the Flood Gates again. Antonio shows up on Monday Night.
PHILLIP RIVERS – QB – SD
Raise your hand if you have seen him on this list before. The weak armed gunslinger was able to find success against the Saints. Now everyone thinks he has back to being a top 10 QB.
Newsflash, the Saints defense will likely make Josh Freeman look like a god next week. Rivers is about to get a reality check on Monday Night as the Broncos Defense is one of the best in the AFC. Do not think because the Patriots could dominate them that Rivers has any chance. Between Floyd being locked up, and Gates looking a step slower. The Chargers are going to be a run first offense moving forward now that Mathews is back.
Trade Rivers along with another player to upgrade your QB situation.
STEVAN RIDLEY – RB – NE
He is on this list because of his fumble last week. Bill kills fantasy RBs that put the ball on the ground. Ridley should still get the carries this week, simply because he has ran for nearly 500 Yards. Just keep in mind that Bradon Bolden is very capable of being the next Benjarvus Green-Ellis but way more athletic. I had him as a BEAST OR BUST OF THE WEEK for a reason.
Do not sell Ridley for too low, but if you work a deal to turn him into Darren McFadden or DeMarco Murray. I would make it happen.
MIKEL LESHOURE – RB – DET
Put him on this last last week. Giving you one last warning to sell him before it is too late. The Lions are coming off the bye, and I expect Jo. Bell to be heavily involved this week. He looked great to close out the last week, and he reminds me of a combination of Leshoure/K.Smith. Not to mention Jahvid Best is returning soon. This is turning into a crowded backfield, now is the time to cut your losses.
DARREN SPROLES – RB – NO
The three headed monster of Sproles/Thomas/Ingram. Has turned into mostly just Pierre Thomas. Fantasy owners of Sproles may be in denial about that statement, but the truth is if the Saints want a big run or a 3rd down screen pass. Pierre has been the man so far.
Other fantasy owners may not be aware of that, so now is the time to throw Sproles on the trade table and turn him into a stud RB you can count on week-to-week. Now is the time to go after DeMarco.
AHMAD BRADSHAW – RB – NYG
Ahmad ran for 200 Yards and a TD against a Cleveland team that lost Rubin, their best Defensive Lineman early in the game. Then they lost D’Qwell Jackson their star MLB the next quarter. Between those two getting injured, and Andre Brown getting a concussion on the second kickoff of the game after a Bradshaw fumble.
The cards were playing right for Bradshaw all game. Until David Wilson stole the show for a 40 yard TD run. I do not like the situation here, and now the Giants are up against the 49ers, which means his value will drop. Not a great matchup at all..encase you are new to this Fantasy Football thing. Never play any RB against SF in SF, unless they are a top 5 RB.
JORDY NELSON – WR – GB
His time is coming to an end.
Greg Jennings will be back soon, James Jones is looking great, Randall Cobb should be a bigger factor moving forward. While Jordy is still capable of the 100 Yard/2 TD game. Chances are it will not be as consistent as you would hope for. He still has the big name, and he still has the top QB.
I would aim to get an underachieving Andre Johnson for him straight up.
WES WELKER – WR – NE
Wes now has Aaron Hernandez back. While Wes did everything he needed to do to show that he should be on the field at all times. Chances are Aaron quickly eats into his production the second he touches that field. Welker is playing like a top 10 WR easily right now, and now is the time to get that type of value from him.
If you can trade for Demaryius Thomas, you are getting a great consistent long-term upgrade.
DENNIS PITTA – TE – BAL
That is the first word that comes to mind when you think about Pitta. The Ravens seem to target Anquan Boldin/Torrey Smith/Ray Rice, and then Dennis Pitta. I like Dennis, I think he has one of the best hands for a TE in the NFL. I would trade him though as his value as a Top 10 TE is still there.
Combo Dennis with a weaker RB. Turn him into a stronger TE such as Aaron Hernandez.
