Dez Bryant can't see the Dez owner willing to sell low
Colston likewise
Cruz he has a little bit of 'spent too much time in the offseason worrying about other stuff than football' to him, I'm not pursuing him - want to see more
Nicks same story as Dez and Colston
Welker this owner will be getting an email from me in every league



Sell high...

RGIII (anyone selling? I have him, but I'm keeping him at least for the next few weeks) it's a dyno, but, absolutely not - wouldn't in a redraft either
Alfred Morris if you own Washington RB's you should always be looking to sell them
S. Ridley supposedly he looked good and he did in preseason too, I'm withdrawing my opinion here because I have never liked him
Garcon nope, hard10's wrong about him - he's legit
Alshon Jeffery can't see much of a market here, more of a stash or hold

I'll add Richardson, his owners - especially ones burned by rookie RB's in the past - may be hitting the panic button. I'm not looking to sell any of my guys though, I picked them because I liked them. Them playing well is just reassuring that they're good players.

I'd offer to "sell" Larry Fitz to any Brandon Marshall owner but have no interest in getting laughed at for that offer.

I wouldn't be so quick to sell Ridley. Guy ran HARD yesterday and looked good. Much better than I would have imagined he could.

Cruz will be fine....spoken as the guy who loved him last year and then hit the eject buttom to drop him for the Devery Henderson's and then he blew up week 3 or 4.

Take Jeffery off the sell high list. No one's giving up much for him yet, and he'll be more useful than anyone you could get for him right now.

I like Ridley to continue to be a quality option all season, too.
But I'm definitely on board with selling the Redskins if you can swing a good deal.


Add Damaryius Thomas to the Sell High list, too.

I like Garcon and Ridley both this year. I would buy them. I agree with Nicks, if you can get him low; I would.

I drafted Welker and I have to admit; the Lloyd situation has me scared. Between the 2 TEs and LLoyd; they were targeted, I think 5x as many times as Welker ](*,)

Good point. Not giving up on TRich yet either

Tennessee schemed to make sure Welker did not beat them, so Brady did. HWBF.

Nah, that's who he is. He'll have a lot of those types of games mixed in with a handful of 3-4/40-50's.

I wouldn't sell high on Garcon and Ridley just yet. I own both and like someone else mentioned, they look "legit"

Garcon posted 4 catches, 109 yds, and 1 TD in one quarter. Imagine if he played the whole game

Not sure what to make of Welker.

Watching the game he was invisible for the most part and after reading the stats on how many snaps he was on the sidelines, it's definitely worth a little concern - even though it's only week 1.

Right. He's a homerun threat who will disappear some weeks. But he was hyped as a breakout guy almost everywhere during the offseason, and a lot of people will take week 1 as confirmation of that. I'd bet there are people willing to buy him as a top 10-15 WR right now.
I'm not saying sell him because he won't be useful, I'm saying there's a good chance you can get more than he's worth.

Anyone think Kevin Smith is a sell high candidate? In a couple of weeks he will sharing carries with Leshoure.

The only reason I'm not is because I have him in leagues with LeShoure, if I had Smith and did not have LeShoure I'd go shopping though.
