Well, the hype wagon is in full swing, and although everyone knows that it could never happen, that (see the article title) is the pace that Randy Moss (WR, NE) is on right now. If you read my preseason post about Moss, you know that I fully expected him to have a great year (and actually two or three more afterward.) After week one, many of the Moss naysayers are fully parked on his bandwagon, so my advice to you is simple: TRADE HIM RIGHT NOW, because his value will never be higher than it is at this moment! I only recommend trading him of your team is looking to build for the future, but some owner in your league is probably pretty wide-eyed right about now and upset that he did not draft Moss before the season.

If you haven’t already, check out the podcast me and Adam Caplan are doing on Sunday nights, it’s a quick review of the week that was. If we have time, we’ll do a quick preview on Friday. We have a long way to go with this thing (making it downloadable, on Itunes, etc). But this is at least a start. I really need to get cloned.

I didn’t ask this question myself, but I constructed the question and asked for it to be posed to him on the Rams with no Orlando Pace. In short, Faulk doesn’t think it will be too big of a deal for RB Steven Jackson. Faulk cited last year, when Jackson put up big numbers while Jackson was out. He did, however, express his concern for Marc Bulger and the receivers, stating how the protection and the timing of the passing game might [...]
