Sorry I’m not checking in as often as I’d like or should, but hopefully with feedback ideas will flow and things will pick up.
Say, did you read John Hansen’s post yesterday on the New England offense? Great stuff. If you missed it, here it is.
This only re-inforces my thought that dynasty owners of Randy Moss should sell, provided you receive full or close to full value.
A friend of mine and I are in a 16 team dynasty league and we got into a long protracted discussion on the New England Patriots and the name I kept injecting into the dialogue (much to his annoyance) was Wes Welker. Why Welker?
First, New England traded a 2nd and 7th and signed him to a sizeable contract, so they obviously have serious plans for him. Second, the hay to be made in this offense will be over the middle, be it with Moss and Stallworth clearing things out for Watson and Welker. Or Maroney running in the vast space created by their outside receivers.
The point is, I think Hansen is dead on. Wes Welker has a chance to be the Pats new Troy Brown. A do-all, catch-all PPR league dynamo. And if Maroney goes down or the running game struggles, the short passing game could become their running game.
So if guys like Welker and Watson are poaching some Moss’ production, will he actually live up to his current fantasy expectations (Top 5-15)? If you have misgivings like I do, the only solution is to sell for coresponding value.
Hey, if you have any trade stuff going in your dynasty / keeper leagues, go ahead and post it and I’ll throw in my two cents.
