The Bait and Switch: Players to Trade and Trade For

Image 10-1-13 at 8.50 PM

Time to take a look at players that we should look to be moving and players that we should be trying to acquire.  It’s time to bamboozle these fools with the Bait and Switch:

Bait

Mike Vick

You know it’s coming.  One hit and this dude is out.  Now is the time to get the most value out of him.  He most likely is your 2nd QB, or maybe you grabbed Rivers off waivers.  Get something out of him before the rug gets pulled out.

Trent Richardson

Raise your hand if you are impressed with the Rolling Ball of Butcher Knives…hello?  Anyone?  Bueller?  3.3 YPC is not getting it done, but he is the guy there while Bradshaw is out.  I fully expect a time share once AB returns.  If you can still get #1 RB value for him, I would pull the trigger.

DeAngelo Williams

Williams has been a nice story this season.  Racking up rushing yards and such.  Where are the receptions and TDs?  Not there and not going to be there.  Time is now to move him as J-Stew could return to the lineup and this becomes a huge mess.

Dwyane Bowe

Bowe got a garbage time TD last week, but he is still not getting the deep shots we want out of him.  Next week we could see 4/39 and we will be ready to jump off a cliff.

Kenbrell Thompkins

Thompkins has been nice over the last 2 weeks, but with the eminent return of Danny Amendola and Rob Gronk coming back, those targets are going down for KT.  Might as well move him while you can get good value.

Switch

Philip Rivers

Rivers is surprisingly a top 5 QB this season and the way they are using him, that doesn’t look it will be changing anytime soon.  The schedule is bueno, the matchups are muy bueno, and he may be available on the cheap.

RG3

RG3 is only going to get better.  The bye week should give him a good chance to get in football shape.  The defense stinks and he will be slinging it.  Oh, and the NFC East is like swiss cheese.

David Wilson

David Wilson, why can’t I quit you!!!  The Giants surprised everyone today by releasing Da’Rel Scott who was on the field a lot.  Was this a ploy to give Wilson the ball?  Maybe.  It sure as hell is not going to be Brandon Jacobs.  It could be Michael Cox.  I want to see what Wilson can do with 20 touches against the Eagles.  C’mon Coughlin, do it!!

Joique Bell

Reggie Bush is a stud…when he is one the field.  Getting this many touches and playing on turf is a recipe for missed games for Mr Bush.  Grabbing Bell on the cheap now is a smart move in case Bush misses time.  Bell would be an instant top 10 RB.

Roddy White

White is getting closer to 100% and should be after the Falcon’s bye week.  Now is the time to grab him and hope that after the bye he can be a strong WR2 down the stretch.

Let’s Get Wired UP in Week 5!!
